John Weaver, a longtime GOP strategist, said: "The voters have chosen new management [in the White House] for a reason, and this just reinforces it. It just makes the hill a little steeper for us." Looking toward 2012, Weaver joked, "At this rate, if you're a junior Jaycees president in Memphis, you could be in line for the nomination." go warm up in the bullpen steelgal...your goin in..

Republicans in Congress have been trying to develop a more effective response to President Obama and the Democrats, and there is a sense among some GOP lawmakers and strategists that they have slowly begun to identify the president's vulnerabilities. But polls show that Republicans have made little progress since the election. The latest Washington Post-ABC News survey found Republicans lower in favorability than at any point since the early 1990s. Obama enjoys huge advantages in public trust.

Some political strategists question how Republicans can get traction when two pillars of their message -- family values and fiscal rectitude -- have been undermined by errant politicians' transgressions, and by the collective failure of GOP leaders to control spending when they held the White House and Congress.

"If Republicans talk about family values, people will roll their eyes," said Matthew Dowd,

Really? When was the last time a GOPer claimed to be a super-religious person and claimed they were qualified because of their faith?

Oh yeah, and I am going need a source for this one... an actual quote.

Many CLAIM faith. Many TALK about how their faith interacts with what they do.. but Qualified BECAUSE of their faith? I am looking forward to seeing that one...

Oklahoma Republican Blames Gays for Recession
Jump to Comments

200803_a9_hunde16804_a9kern11

Oklahoma Republican State Rep. Sally Kern, declared war on the LGBT community saying, “[the LGBT community is] “the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism.” Kern, a radical, rightwing homophobe, even introduced a resolution blaming gays, troubled families, and general “debauchery” for the nation’s financial crisis.

Read below:

WHEREAS, we believe our economic woes are consequences of our greater national moral crisis; and

WHEREAS, this nation has become a world leader in promoting abortion, pornography, same sex marriage, sex trafficking, divorce, illegitimate births, child abuse, and many other forms of debauchery; and

WHEREAS, alarmed that the Government of the United States of America is forsaking the rich Christian heritage upon which this nation was built; and

WHEREAS, grieved that the Office of the president of these United States has refused to uphold the long held tradition of past presidents in giving recognition to our National Day of Prayer; and

WHEREAS, deeply disturbed that the Office of the president of these United States disregards the biblical admonitions to live clean and pure lives by proclaiming an entire month to an immoral behavior;

But this crazy bitch has a skeletons of her own. Sources in Tulsa, OK tell this Blog that Kern and her homo-hating, Baptist preacher hubbie produced a queer son who they’ve disowned! Now, there’s some Christian family values for you.

Oy...I think I've seen and heard it all now

What kind of absolute friggin IDIOT blames the recession on gays? See, this is the main reason why I would never join the Republican party. They have allowed the extreme kook religious nuts to gain way too much power and influence over the party. I have no problem with people practicing religion - I'm a believer in God myself. But good grief...that kind of thinking is just ridiculous, and I can't deal with that. And the sad part is that there are a whole lot of complete dullards out there who'll eat that up.

It's ONE idiot, XT. I can guarantee you that the Republican Party as a whole doesn't share that douchenozzle's belief.

We currently have a President who allowed a religious fanatic, who also happens to be a racist, influence him for over 20 years.

Though I don't condone infidelity in a marriage, I realize that even politicians are human and what they do in their private lives is really no one else's business but their own (though I couldn't blame Stiffy Bill for going out on Hillary - who in their right mind would want to wake up next to that Rotweiler every morning? ) Both parties are equally as guilty of pointing the fickle finger of blame at the other while living in their glass houses.

When a person turns around and does something they claimed they were against. The lefts "outrage" isn't so much about actually giving a damn what they did as it is calling a hypocrite a hypocrite.

This has more to do with irony than outrage honestly.
So your saying Democrats embelish the fact that most of em are sleazeballs with no morals?

There's not even that much principle involved. It's just wanting to destroy a member of the opposing team.

There was an "Impeach Obama" group on Facebook before he even took office. Pure sore loser mentality.

Well, the great majority of them don't, I'll give you that, but far, far too many DO share that douche's belief. Too many for my liking. And trust me, Obama going to Rev. Wright's church of hate for 20 years isn't much different. There are a lot of religious whack jobs on the left as well, only they don't get nearly as much press. Honestly, if I didn't have to pick a party to vote in the primaries in PA, I'd be an independent - in fact, I WAS an independent up until 2003, when I found out about the party requirement.

This thread seems to be moving away from it's original point of origin.

Is it NOT safe to say that the GOP has buddied up with the fundamentalist Christian right? By doing so, and steeping themselves in the cloak of religious conservatism, it DOES make them a little more susceptible to scrutiny when they "fall from grace". That in no way excuses the left when they make their more than fair share of mistakes and moral missteps. It's simple common sense...there is an added element of irony when a guy labels himself a Christian and thumps his bible then gets caught with a dead girl or a live boy...
