    ... likelihood, not the remotest possibility, that Ryan's plodge of policy would ever actually, you know, get enacted. So they could stuff it with the extremists' wish list. And they did!

    What we cannot do is let the Republicans run on generalities. This election, their Democratic opponents must swing attention to the specifics of what the GOP would chop.

    2014 is HERE. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!

      waste of time vote, when they could actually be, you know, governing. (Then again, considering their idea of "governing", we're safer with them wasting time.) And they can go back to their base and say, "This is why we need a Republican Senate and President so we can save America from the evil liberals."

      •  The Republicans are the nihilist party. (0+ / 0-)

        They need not govern, so they can kibitz to their hearts' content, talking to themselves, throwing stones at the opposition instead of "reasoning together" and just being supercilious suits.

        Why try to be responsible when you have no responsibility?
