Palin Flashback
On this lovely morning I am pondering how in the hell did the Republican party make another enormous blunder?
How did they make Romney the "nominee"? With all the people involved in checking this guy out how did they miss perjury? No one put two and two together again?? The second time in 4 years? Are the Republicans knowingly shooting themselves in the foot so to speak?
I wondered the same thing when they picked Palin. It's like they wanted to run far away from the catastrophe
they knew the financial mess couldn't be fixed. I truly feel the worst is yet to come with the economy and their strategy may be let the Democrats take the fall. They are betting on utter failure on our part. Things get so bad no one will ever forget who was in office. I can't imagine any other reasoning. :wtf:

1. Right on the Money
The GOP doesn't care about what happens to this Country. It's all about perpetuating their flawed ideology, no matter who gets hurt.

2. At least two ways to look at it.
Edited on Sat Jul-14-12 10:27 PM by No Elephants
One way to look at it is that the Republican Party made a blunder--again--as you say.

Another way to look at it is that Obama was supposed to win in 2008 and is intended to have a second term.

For just one thing, I don't think the nation would have stood for another term of Republicans in 2008, after two terms of Bushco.

3. The answer is quite simple.
1. Republicans think they're above the law.
2. When they're called on it, they lie.

That's all you need to know about the Republican mind. That, and insatiable greed.
