GOP members beware! The left is conspiring to eliminate you, according to both Ann Coulter and Human Events, a poorly named Conservative website. According to Ann’s new full of crap book (pretty much just like her last one), immigration reform is the Democrats’ weapon to slaughter the unsuspecting Republicans. Apparently, this “is an open conspiracy by the Left”, you know, because conspiracies work best if everybody knows about them.
And, it gets worse – like that’s possible with a drip like Ann Coulter – Did you know that – 1964 election aside – “Democrats have not been able to get a majority of white people to vote for them in a presidential election since 1948.”? Apparently, Ann has a very short memory because in 1996, Clinton captured the white vote. In Ann’s “specific, gruesome and verifiable detail”, she lays out the plan that by allowing illegal immigrants to become US citizens, they will all vote Democrat and that will eliminate the GOP.
See how that works?
Did you see my eye roll?
Since Ronald Reagan, the Republicans have been swinging right – far right. They’ve turned into government hating, affirmative action banning, anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-education, anti-religious freedom (unless you’re straight, white and Christian), anti-healthcare, pro-business party. There policy seems to be if it moves, ban it. Who else besides white men are going to vote for that?
If Coulter really wanted to look into something substantial, she should look into why the Republican Party has been losing women voters in every Presidential election since 1992. According to Gallup, the last time a Republican won the women’s vote was in 1988, when Bush I scored a whopping 52% of women voters. Considering women make up 51% of the population, I would think the GOP would be worried more about why they’re losing women and less into making up lies about a Leftist conspiracy.
Perhaps, they could find something that would rally votes from all races and sexes? Maybe, then they wouldn’t have to gerrymander the states to secure their jobs.
Apology NOT accepted!
According to Huffington Post, Rick Perry apologized for calling his fellow GOP Candidates heartless. <sigh> Isn’t that sad? I mean really, really sad. He said something he means or, should I say, meant and he’s not standing behind his comment. He was right – his fellow GOP Candidates are heartless. A few of them are hypocrites (can you say Michele Bachmann, boys and girls?).
I disagree with Rick Perry on a lot of subjects, but educating the children of illegal aliens is the right thing to do. He has a point when he said, “If you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they’ve been brought there by no fault of their own, I don’t think you have a heart.”
And, now he says “I was probably a bit over-passionate by using that word, and it was inappropriate.”
Isn’t that what we want in a Presidential Candidate? A guy who feels strongly? Okay, truth is, I wasn’t going to vote for Rick Perry if he was the last man on earth, but come on. Stand up for what you believe in. Tell those sorry ass competitors of yours to go screw themselves.
Quit freaking apologizing! I hate that!
