The GOP’s Fruitless Fight For ‘Middle Ground’

paul-ryanWould Paul Ryan please just stop saying stupid things.

Like, “Now look, if we had a Clinton presidency,  if we had Erskine Bowles [as] Chief of Staff of the White House or President of the United States, I think we would have fixed this fiscal mess by now. That’s not the kind of presidency we’re dealing with right now.”

Look, I am not going to devote a whole blog to this nimrod but enough is freaking enough. What’s he trying to do, help Barack get Hillary elected in 2016?

He goes on in his interview with David Gregory yesterday — and just why in the hell is he doing an interview with that SoHo chicken hawk anyway? — to tell us how chummy he and Hillary are. “I got concussions when I was young and Hillary was telling me about hers….”

Well, that’s just really neato, Paul.

In the first place, if we had the Bill Clinton presidency today he wouldn’t be doing jack about the economy if he had this s**t-for-brains Republican leadership in the House.

So there’s that.

Bill Clinton had two options facing him before his second term: 1) Deal with Newt Gingrich or 2) start working on the boy White House interns (he’d already gone through the girls) and kiss his own ass goodbye. Gingrich — say what we will about the man — allowed Bill to save a little face and remain heterosexual, so he went with Newt.

The state of the Republican Party is a 180-car pileup and Paul Ryan mindlessly chasing breadcrumbs into the dark woods of NBC News yesterday is but one example of the banal, uncreative, in-the-crapper leadership that is keeping it that way.

What is perhaps most amazing about the establishment GOP is that they think by going moderate they will end up somewhere in the middle with Democrats.

Anyone who has even leafed through the DNC playbook knows that compromise to them signals weakness, and at any sign of weakness they frenzy like a pack of bull sharks. Say the word “bipartisan” to a Democrat and they begin to salivate like a junkyard dog on a scrap metal poacher.

Take a look at the “new amnesty” if you are in doubt. Tired, retreaded ideas from Marco Rubio do not a sane immigration policy make.

Liberalism is the height of hypocrisy, and one would think after 30 years of dealing with the New Left Republicans would have learned.

Just as one never brings a knife to a gunfight, the GOP cannot hope to win a war for the nation by making nice. There is no middle ground.

Paul Ryan was touting a “better enemy” in his interview with Gregory Sunday, when he praised Bill and Hillary. They’re way, way better than Barack Obama (best said with a lilting whine).

Memo to Paul: Bill and Hillary Clinton are Democrats. And the only better enemy is a defeated enemy. ‘Nuff said.

For 30 years the Democrat narrative has been “Republicans are evil.” When are Republicans going to get that? Where is the counter-narrative?

Look at Bob Menendez for instance; the guy’s a freaking child molester  and he’s trying to run through a bill to ease immigration restrictions on the kids he’s molesting. The DR been barry, barry good to Bob Menendez. Where is the GOP narrative on that?

Republicans, please, grow a set, or at least come out of the closet.

    So true…I am sooo sick of these weak, Dole type republicans….soft & too willing to give away the store. It’s maddening and depressing at the same time….we do not have a leader in either house…
    Ryan will not be president, ever!!!!
