GOP Conundrum: Deal With Real Problems? Or Redeem Ideological Fantasies?

Get a grip fellas!


The problem with conservative reformers. "The challenge facing the conservative reformers is the yawning gap between their ambition -- crafting a Republican platform designed to address real-world problems rather than redeem ideological fantasies -- and the stark political reality of the Republican coalition. They are attempting to soothe a suspicious beast. The difficulty of the task merely serves to underscore its urgency. The deeper tension in the project lies between the political demands of the reform project and the demands of intellectual honesty." Jonathan Chait in New York Magazine.


What Obama really said in "Audacity of Hope"


I see no daylight between American "conservatives" and The Prince of Darkness.
If ever a sector of American society qualified as Satan's chosen minions,
it is the contemporary American "Right."

The survival of the Republic requires more truth than Republicans supply,
more truth than their bizarre ideology permits.

"There are two ways of lying, as there are two ways of deceiving customers. If the scale registers 15 ounces, you can say: "It's a pound." Your lie will remain relative to an invariable measure of the true. If customers check it, they can see that they are being robbed, and you know by how much you are robbing them: a truth remains as a judge between you. But if the demon induces you to tamper with the scale itself, it is the criterion of the true which is denatured, there is no longer any possible control. 
And little by little you will forget that you are cheating."    
Denis de Rougemont


Simple truths:

Reagan was a RINO

Obama is a Rockefeller Republican.


"What Would Reagan Really Do?"


American "conservatives" are so full of it their back teeth are turning brown.

"Obama's Benghazi, Reagan's Beirut"
