Camouflage

The only thing Republicans have learned from this election is that they need a new coat of camouflage.

Just listen to them: “We need to refine our message.” “We need to communicate better with Hispanics.” “Too often, we misspeak and are misunderstood.”

What they fail to acknowledge is that their problem is not how they communicate their message. Their real problems are greed, bigotry, sexism, religious fanaticism, lack of empathy, and a world view that belongs in the dark ages.

So if they think that a fresh coat of paint is all they need, they’re badly mistaken. Fox “News,” hate radio, and their other crazies are keeping what they are really about front and center with talk of secession and/or impeachment of our president.

1. They're blaming everyone and everything except their policies, which are indefensible.

2. Their policies are who they are

Yet, their only concern seems to be how they can fool enough people into voting them into power.

They totally lack self-awareness.

4. The fact is that in order for them to change......

they actually have to have real ideas and they have nothing. All they can do is dress up the language like Linda McMahon using the words free enterprise in lieu of de-regulate or protect the job creators.
Big money donors are the only thing that keeps them in the game so they have nowhere else to go.
Their whole plan consist of stalling any progress (Benghazi is the current example) until something breaks to their advantage.
It's all they have so I don't feel very optimistic about a truly functioning government.
