    At least it's better than having them actually run things (into the ground).

    that is so pathetic it's funny!! The Republican Party does not have an equivalent to Schumer &/or Waxman, it might help if they did. But you have to believe the cartoonists are with the thought of BO for the next 4 years.

    And the comedians are trying to figure out how to be funny now without the wealth of material they have had for the past 8 years.

    The Comrade 'messiah' will provide PLENTY of material for Leno et all for the next four years, if he can avoid being indicted or impeached for that long

    Looks like Newt Gingrich is 'in the tank' for Obama now, too. Here's the letter he sent to RNC Chair Mike Duncan:

    I was saddened to learn that at a time of national trial, when a president-elect is preparing to take office in the midst of the worst financial crisis in over seventy years, that the Republican National Committee is engaged in the sort of negative, attack politics that the voters rejected in the 2006 and 2008 election cycles.

    The recent web advertisement, “Questions Remain,” is a destructive distraction. Clearly, we should insist that all taped communications regarding the Senate seat should be made public. However, that should be a matter of public policy, not an excuse for political attack.

    In a time when America is facing real challenges, Republicans should be working to help the incoming President succeed in meeting them, regardless of his Party.

    From now until the inaugural, Republicans should be offering to help the President-elect prepare to take office.

    Furthermore, once President Obama takes office, Republicans should be eager to work with him when he is right, and, when he is wrong, offer a better solution, instead of just opposing him.

    This is the only way the Republican Party will become known as the “better solutions” party, not just an opposition party. And this is the only way Republicans will ever regain the trust of the voters to return to the majority.

    This ad is a terrible signal to be sending about both the goals of the Republican Party in the midst of the nation’s troubled economic times and about whether we have actually learned anything from the defeats of 2006 and 2008.

    The RNC should pull the ad down immediately.

    You do understand that the Neuter, who like his successor & POTUS Bill, was morally & ethically challenged. He has a desire to be relevant but will never be. He resides in that "No Person's Land" between being a Rockefeller R & being a real Republican. Some good attributes, many not so good.

    Great! He's a RINO? Kick him out! Exile him to No Person's Land.

    If you think the way forward for the Republican party is to dismiss those in your party who aren't ideologically 'pure', then you have my full support. I'm more than happy to see you move the party in that direction.

    I debated with myself even bothering to answer, but here goes.

    The neuter was very relevant during the implementation of the Contract with America, then blew it all personally with his personal conduct. Had the party stayed the course, we would have a huge majority today & none of the Bushism's the party is suffering for now.

    I think we will see a better flock of candidates in the next election cycle after there have been 4 years of Socialism stuffed down our craw. The reaction of this Adminstration, again, most of whom are at best, RINO's, is a disgrace to the free market principles of this nation.

    But I am sure the entrepeneurs & the workers will dig out from under the pile, it's just the nature of this great country.

    Could not agree more. Corruption is bipartisan.
