  •  Why would you think that? (0+ / 0-)

    Why would anyone think that it is any way part of the Rethuglicorp playbook to take responsibility for anything?

    The reason the economy is in the shitter is that the Reps shoved it there with their war on the Middle Class over the last twenty years.

    The reason the national debt is astronomical is that the Reps drove it there with unpaid wars, unpaid transfers of wealth to corporations, and tax cuts for the wealthy.

    The reason there are no jobs is that the Reps and their sponsors, corporations, have spent the last thirty years sending American jobs to Asia, and arranging tax breaks for that campaign.

    The reason the stimulus was not as effective as it could have been was that the Reps demanded that it be weakened before voting against it anyway.

    This very election, the Reps are being rewarded for all the damage they have done.  And someone is expecting them to change that, and own up to anything?

    Not as long as their hold on the false reality so many people are spoon fed is as strong as it is, there is no reason for them to change.  As long as they can get the voters to blame Dems for the damage Reps caused, and vote against their own interest, while Dems refuse to make their own case with any effectiveness, why change?
