  •  Victims of their success! The wars on women, (6+ / 0-)

    Blacks, homosexuals, Hispanics, workers, immigrants, people of religions that are not theirs, etc. have been so successful among their racist base that Republicans cannot put the genie back in the bottle.  Their base demands racism/xenophobia/hatred and since the base is all they have they will always play that card in the elections.

    They somehow thought that Cuban-Americans did not pay any attention to their campaign of hatred against all Hispanics (since local ads were always sure to attack Castro and pretend to be for Cuban-Americans), but Republicans forget that the inter-tubz carries their campaigns-o-hatred to everyone, even HIspanics like Cuban-Americans that had  overwhelmingly supported Republicans since Bay of Pigs.

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

      they cooked their own gooses and people are more in tune to what is really going on than they could get away with before the explosion of social media, but I would not expect angry. old white guys to get any of this.

      the only change from'08 was how open and brazen they were. not sure what they saw that the rest of us did not but none of them can stand on their own due to the self-inflicted gunshot wounds.

      mittens=edsel. no matter how much money is spent to promote it, if the product sucks, no one will buy it.

      he is saying is amazing.  Do voters have such a short memory and the media just continues to prop him up with his reinvented views without showing what he said when he was catering to his base.

      Do not adjust your mind, there is a flaw in reality.
