1. Well, that's done....

 

Now Priebus will go to the next group and tell them exactly what they want to hear... regardless of what that might be.

3. Makes no sense

I wish them luck with trying to sell that. Given what has been going on at the state level the national party is in for a real ride.

4. Whew, glad we got that settled. We can be intolerant, and even persecute

and murder, as long as we smile when we do it. Thank you sir, may I have another? Michael Steele's motto.

Honestly, I am beginning to think the best part of Republicans ran down their mother's legs. And I am stealing a Carlin joke in saying that.

11. He had to "assure" them that?

Heaven forbid that tolerant "turn the other cheek" shit.

He said Rethuglicans will continue to opposes same-sex marriage, will seek to ban abortion, and then claimed, "Republicans need to adopt a more tolerant tone."

So, "...not going to embrace tolerance" meets "Republicans needed to adopt a more tolerant tone."

Understanding conservatives izz hard.

13. I dont care for the word tolerance either.

It implies a value judgment, the acceptance of something we find morally wrong.

The simple fact he uses the word is already a problem.

But now..I've seen the light .."You're still a filthy whore who WILL NOT get an Abortion but I like you very, very much and have a nice day"

OR out his mouth which in the case of Republicans IS their ass - it's certainly what they talk out of.

22. They're being too tolerant, IMHO

They should let their inner bigot flags fly for all to see. No sense in hiding them - the voters will appreciate the honesty.

23. Copper tone

Maybe what we need is a "Copper Tone" (I suspect John Boehner uses it) where we have a brown skinned baby with a white butt...

By the way, has anyone ever seen Boehner's butt?

Now, get that picture out of your mind.

26. This is SOP for the Republican Party and has been for some time.

They're all about spin and "tone". This is because their true agenda isn't in the best interest of the vast majority of the American people.

I'm a little surprised that they're being so honest about it. Sort of kills the point, doesn't it?

27. What he calls "tolerance", I call acceptance and compassion. And I can guarantee he has none of that

"To tolerate" gay people; "to tolerate" poor people; "to tolerate" women; "to tolerate" minorities; "to tolerate" diversity in culture. What else am I supposed to read into their use of the word?

It's not "tolerance" that marks liberals. We don't just "tolerate" people and the diversity of life. We embrace, accept, and make them part of who we are. No shame because it is an act of love and an act of maturity.

Republicans, conservatives...they "tolerate" because they don't have the heart or mind to know otherwise. They "tolerate" when they feel they can't do anything other than that. Because when they have the power and the means, they don't "tolerate" at all.

Obnoxious self-satisfied little putz.

32. Well their media didn't get this message - Rush and O'Reilly think they found gold

They have been on rants of late much harsher and much closer to open racism than I have ever heard.

Just so you know.

37. The GOP is in an unhealthy, reactionary place. They literally react to whatever Dems stand for by


moving in the opposite direction!

All Dems need to do is stand for freedom and equality (and make sure we use those words over and over), and the Repugs soon enough will claim that we have a "hidden agenda" and will explain to their minion followers why they shouldn't be for freedom or equality at all.
