A moment of silence for the GOP.

Here's a chance to not say anything about the GOP's big issues:

Have you noticed the lull?

Obamacare.

IRS.

Benghazi.

The National Debt ceiling.

They're down to Gay bashing and abortions.


RIP GOP.

1. I hope you are right. I'm not so sure with the gerrymandering of the house.

If we don't get control of congress, it's gonna be very difficult for any good change.

5. You're right, but these issues are out of the news.....

When was the last time you heard that Obamacare was going to make you lose your insurance for instance. The Media (I don't mean Fox) is on to the next thing.....And Benghazi? Nothing.

4. Well they have to appeal to their base.

Which right now would be the unapologetic bigots, racists, misogynistic, religiously zealot, bat shit crazy asswipes that just suck the life out of everything.

8. Reads like a laundry-list of election-winning issues:

We will replace Obamacare with... something... that will be even better, in a way, and we will finance it with... ehrm...

IRS!!!!!!!! Big IRS oppressing conservatives... and we demand an investigation... no, not an actual in-depth-investigation into what happened... just... you know... Investigation? Benghazi!!!!!!

Benghazi!!!!! A US-embassy under attack and Americans died! That had never happened before! Or maybe it did, but that's not important... The point is: Obama and or Hillary Clinton are to blame... somehow... and we demand an investigation... no, a new one with better results! We need to get something out of this!

Debt-ceiling!!! It is important to send a message by not paying for stuff we already ordered, that will send a message of fiscal... Maybe we should just stop explaining things. It doesn't make us look good. Just gag our candidates, so they won't say something stupid until the election.

Not saying offensive stuff! Yeah, that will win us votes. Especially among the ass-bandits and sluts!!!!!

9. At some point, they will need to start telling people what they are for...

and come up with some creative solutions that address middle-class needs. A Party built on hateful rhetoric, back-assward legislation, and pandering to the religious/1% needs is not a recipe for longterm viability. As their primary issues get knocked out from underneath them (eg. Obamacare. Benghazzi, gay marriage), they are going to be left swinging in the wind.
