The poor state of our union from a republican viewpoint....
What's this country coming to? The economy is recovering from the worst recession since the Great Depression under a Democrat President, and you can't even buy a damned election these days! We do all the work to getting democrat voters disenfranchised, and some damned judge is always reversing the decisions. We can't even keep wars going these days because Obama is shutting them down faster than we can start them! We spend years and billions of dollars getting federal regulations dropped on our banking system so we can make a few bucks and just because a few CEOs got caught cheating, they want to bring them back. It's like you can't even recognize America anymore!
The republican party was synonymous with strong foreign policy and defense policy and now the only thing it's strong in is gaffs made by republican leaders. Do you realize how much money it cost to get Citizens United passed so we could funnel billions to republican candidates? That was supposed to rid us of these pesky commie-left democrats, but somehow they are still winning. That just goes to show how pitiful this country is becoming.
We nominate a rich Mormon business-person that should have been a shoe-in, and it looks like he's getting the bejeezus slapped out of him. How the hell does that happen? The people in this country think they are getting smart, but all they are doing is ruining things for the elite who really run this country.
If we didn't still have the electronic voting rigged, the damned democrats could win this election! Thank god for the little things! It's like you can't even cheat anymore in America. How did we get to the point to where an African non-American citizen could become president? It just goes to show how bad things really are!
If this keeps up, it won't be long before the middle class starts making a comeback, which we all know will bring America to its knees.
Did god switch political parties? I thought we had him on the payroll?
Friends, I sure hope you are hiding your money in off-shore or Swiss bank accounts, because at the rate its going, we are gonna have to start paying a fair share of the taxes, and that could decimate the money we receive from corporations and billionaires to steal elections and buy legislation.
A rich person can't get the recogniton he deserves anymore in this country, and that's just pitiful.

2. Poking fun
Poking fun at republicans is very very useful. It puts their willful ignorance on display and strengthens our resolve to deal with it. it even might get some independents to see the republicans for who they are- than vote fo the person, haha.
Since you are so good at defining our opposition, have you thought about framing your straements in such a way that conservatives themselves cannot shut them out. I have done this on occasion and it irritates thehell out of the conservatives because it opens their closed mind to an extent leaving them in a quandary with no simple disconnected idea to grasp without thinking.
For example- when we have the middle east riots, we could criticize the lack of discipline being exercised by Romney and his supporters, and point out the whole thing was caused by a lack of discipline on the part of right wing haters. Second we can at every instance explain how women are often better leader and how great Hillary would be as President. A comparison of het actions regarding Libya to Mitt Romney's would be infuriating to them. We should also charge them with destroying the traditional family by driving down wages and forcing shared responsibility rather than father dominated families.
The conservatives cannot last long in the spotlight- their policies are just wrong for people. The say republicans can get elected but cannot govern, Hmmm.
I realize I would complain if they hung me with a new rope, but then I hope you will find this comment useful. I loved yours.

3. I like your comments, as well as the OP's. Thanks for weighing in.
And I love that you used the "complain if they hung me with a new rope" quote. Hadn't heard anyone say that in awhile, although it frequently pops into my head. Good one!
