GOP Autopsy Shows Party
Dying An Unnatural Death

Investor´s Business Daily, by Douglas Mackinnon

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/20/2013 7:14:26 PM

President Obama knows for a fact what many in the Republican Party — especially its "leadership" — fail to understand or acknowledge: That being, for his purposes, the GOP is not only irrelevant, but impotent as it flails about in search of convictions, some backbone, national support and an honest message. The just released self-described "autopsy" report by the Republican National Committee merely confirms that truth. Beyond the president, this new reality has dawned on all but the most partisan Republicans or consultants to the RNC. It has become crystal clear that a growing number of liberals in positions of

Well, we know who hates the Republican Party. Thanks Doug, for bolstering Obama´s minions. "Former Republican" sounds a better title for you.

Can you say RINO? The Republican Party is run by big government progressives who hoisted themselves and the Republican Party on their own petards when they declared war on the best thing they had going for them, the TEA Party.

The reports of a GOP death are overstated and premature.

Can I say this without getting banned? Screw you.

The article is unfortunate but true. The GOP is becoming irrelevant as it stands today. The divide between Conservatives and Moderates is too large to bridge. The leadership is entrenched in the DC "reality-world view". If honest, the GOP has accomplished very little in the past 13-14 years.

Sometimes you have to realize the Brand has been so damaged it is no longer possible to save it.

The people who have supported the GOP over the decades are great. The leadership is Worthless (both conservative and moderate). We have the capability to create a great party that can take American away from the democrates and towards the ideals and dreams it was designed to be.

BUT we can´t do it with the leaders we have. We can´t do it without principles. AND we can´t do it under the Brand name GOP. I am sorry if that upsets you and your views. I´m not looking for an arguement because you cannot argue with reality and facts. My hope and belief is we can come together and recreate ourselves sooner than later. If not we lose our freedom and we lose the meaning of being an American.

Face facts, cut your loses, solve the problem and do it with a positive attitude.

I agree we have problems, namely the establishment cronies who are just in it for themselves--the professional politicians. But we also have to be more active and more vocal about changing this. We MUST stop voting for the same idiots over and over again. We also need to re-energize the base into getting involved. We let ourselves fall into this funk because we did nothing after 2010 to keep the momentum up. We got the House back. We should have kept working hard to fight for more. But instead we allowed the media to have the loudest platform and we did NOTHING to counter their endless lies and propaganda campaign. We have to stay strong, committed and motivated. Instead, we keep falling back into complacency and WORST OF ALL...we sit back and expect someone ELSE to come rescue us. NOBODY is going to rescue us. God helps those who help themselves. Instead, we sit and wait for someone else to do it and then wonder why things keep getting worse. The Democrats don´t sit around expecting others to do their dirty work. They go out and do it themselves.

Our only hope is for ALL good people to get involved and active. We should not be at home watching TV. We should be meeting with our local chapters, making fliers, writing/advertising blogs or doing whatever it takes to save what´s left of our country. We´re at war. WAR! Could you imagine our parents or grandparents expecting someone else to beat Germany & Japan and not doing anything to ensure victory in WWII??? This is bigger than WWII and still people just sit around and whine waiting to be “saved”.

The headline writer has confused a grave prognosis (no pun) with an autopsy, the latter of which would be conducted post mortem. Right now, the patient is still on the operating table.

Actually there is nothing unnatural about this death, which has been in progress for some 100 years. The problem is the burial, which is some 3 generations tardy. Reality is simple. The GOP has been secular, progressive and corporatist since 1854 and never had anything to do w/principled conservative values and traditions. NEVER!!! Can we get a burial party to do the honors or at the very least, set this odious carcass ablaze. A show of hands please?

Ted Cruz, Michelle Bachmann, Jim DeMint and Rand Paul ( if he adjusts on foreign policy) are the new Liberty/Freedom Party. My votes still out on Rubio.

They will lead us given the opportunity. We must engage and stay engaged with these people.

#1: There´s a growing number of us who are "former Republicans" - for good reason. Better to have several parties true to their principles than two "big tents" who are not. The point your side ignores is that with a multi-party system, no party will be likely to have an absolute majority - including the Democrats.

All I can say is there are a lot of stupid people out there and I include a great many who post on this forum. After all, the GOP was also pronounced dead in 1964, 1974, 1992 and 2008 and that´s just the announcements I recall from my own lifetime. I believe the GOP was also proclaimed dead in 1936 and again after the 1948 election. Considering the current balance of power in the state capitols around the nation and the fact that Republicans still do control the House this so called dead party is currently a heck of a lot healthier than it was after any of these early pronouncements of its demise.

it´s true #7, we (conservatives), did defeat the democrats to win the House of Representatives, but we did not defeat the republican leadership, whom control the House. Thus, in the end, WE did NOT win the House.

You are right, also #7, when you opine that we are in a WAR, but its a much different war than WWII, because we´re in a war against a Marxist CANCER inside our bowels. We are being attacked from within. We must cleanse our system, yet, in our weakened state guard against attack for our enemies abroad. It´s a daunting task, and our future, truly, hangs in the balance.

Like many cancer patients, I think the American people are in a state of denial.

It is evidence of what ails us that the third comment to this article refers to "Rino´s". We need to broaden our tent, not narrow it. We shall survive by unity rather than by dissent. The Tea Party is not a party, nor can it ever be.
We shall not be sustained by screaming and shouting, but by principled opposition.

I think teleprompter is a one off and when he exits the dims´ cult of personality will be finished.

First we must defeat the RNC with its McCains, Romneys, Bushes, and Doles. Then, and only then, can we confront the Marxists. The current Republican leaders are as much enemies of freedom as the Democrats.

I can´t believe someone actually put the phrase "principled opposition“ in the same sentence with the names Boehner and McConnell.

Buh Bye GOP/NRC. Reality has finally caught up to you. The crocodile tears and pitiful pleas for unity while you stab your base in the back has final reached the saturation point. Trotting out the "if you don´t vote for us, your the reason
the democrats will win meme well has finally dried up.

The reason your soon to be a rotting corpse is because of the greed of the leadership. No one trusts you anymore, and you refuse to accept responsibility for your failings, thus your demise is certain and its your own fault. We will survive without you. Actually we have been surviving in spite of you for a while now anyway.

This article completely ignores that the GOP controls about 30 state governments. It is the national party, the RNC that needs some leadership. Presently, Obama is "appointing" the leadership every time he invites John McCain and Lindsey Graham to the White House for conferences. Naturally, he picks the weakest links for the GOP leadership posts. And John McCain´s ego is so blinding to him that he cannot see how he is being played for a useful tool by Obama and his minions. Ted Cruz, John Lee and Rand Paul are not likely to invited into a spotlight by anyone in the White House; they will only be smeared as "extreme."

A bigger tent with less people won´t help the Repubs win. All it will take is the right leader to step up with a new Party. Not a party that everyone perceives as long or nuts.

I´d like to put my energies toward something... It won´t be the GOP again.

The left is unified in its support of totalitarian socialism. Outside of the left, there are big government Rockefeller Republicans, social conservatives, militarists, and libertarians. I don´t think any party can unite them. The overwhelming majority of Americans are either totally or significantly dependent on government handouts. The left and the media have successfully demonized european-american males. For those who believe in freedom and private property, our political system has nothing to offer.

Some truth and a lot of hyperbole but that´s a good way to make a point. The Republican Party has become top heavy and effete. The Democrats do disrespect them and think they can dispatch the Republicans with a well aimed shot like you would dispatch a rabid dog.

That won´t solve their problem which is the constitution. They want to discard it and the American people want to keep it.. The Republicans might be exhausted and virtually comatose but they´re on the right side. The Democrats will fail because socialism doesn´t work and collectivist totalitarians always fail. Meanwhile the constitution remains unscathed just waiting for a champion to honor it. Hopefully that will be the Republicans but if not it will be the same people with a different name.

Chris Christie: Republicans don´t get anywhere

Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

Republican pundit Charles Krauthammer said that when Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie embraced President Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy a week before the 2012 presidential election, he was essentially giving Obama a lap dance. “I think many Republicans are extremely upset with what was described in the press as giving Obama a bear hug,” Krauthammer said on Sunday in a debate with Obama strategist David Plouffe, according to Politico. “I saw it slightly differently, I thought it was more of like a lap dance. Not a phrase I would use on television, since the image is too disturbing.” Krauthammer did use

In a way it´s the oddest bit of ObamaCare propaganda we´ve seen so far. "This Is What an #ACASurge Looks Like" was the title of a Saturday post on the White House Blog by senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness. "The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami," McGuinness boasts. "The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they´re covered. This is what momentum looks like." To McGuinness´s credit, she does mean "literally" literally. The post

Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year. In the Rose Garden Tuesday, President Obama reported that 7.1 million people had signed up so far, confirming a Monday night White House news leak. "That doesn´t mean all our health-care problems have been solved forever," he conceded with customary modesty. The government appears to have tapped heretofore-unknown reserves of bureaucratic efficiency by releasing numbers timed to

Health Care: The administration is crowing that 7 million people filled out applications for ObamaCare plans — the original enrollment target that once seemed impossible to hit. Don´t pop the champagne bottles just yet. Given the news about surging enrollment and rising poll numbers, maybe Nancy Pelosi was right that Democrats will all benefit in the fall from ObamaCare. Except that once you strip out the hyperbole, little remains to celebrate. • Seven million enrollees? That figure fails to discount those who haven´t paid their premiums. Among the eight states releasing this number, about one in five "enrollees," on average, haven´t paid.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000.
