I keep hearing the "more takers than makers" meme from Republicans. Do they think insulting the
majority of voters is the way to win future elections? How is this any better than Mitt's 47% gaffe? And do they even realize that this is another variation of the "lazy welfare cheats" dog whistle targeting minorities? How does this win them Latino, African American, Latino, and young people's votes?

3. That's all they know how to do. I don't think they're capable of introspection
& self criticism, and that will be their downfall. Nothing any Republican has uttered since the election gives me any hope whatsoever that anything will change in Washington. We needed to take back the House. Maybe after 2 more years of GOP obstructionism, voters will get the message in 2014 and vote the bastards out.
I wish I felt more optimistic, but I have no hope that the GOP will see the light and put country before party any time soon.
