Jerry Brown: GOP must move out of their "reactionary cul-de-sac"


Although California's Democratic Governor Jerry Brown had harsh words about the entire political system on "Face the Nation," he saved his most striking criticism for the GOP.

"I think the Republicans have to move out of that reactionary cul-de-sac that some of the more extreme members are pushing them," Brown told host Bob Schieffer.

"There's an enforcement of discipline that's ideological and, as was mentioned today in The Washington Post, takes on the quality of a cult," the California governor said.

"They're so hostile to millions and millions of people in this country, and while they can't vote, they have millions and millions of people who they're related to or who identify with them. And you just can't ignore 12 million people, particularly when they're picking our food, they're working in the hotels and restaurants, and now they're increasingly in very important jobs," Brown said.

Letís just say it: The Republicans are the problem

1. Cult is correct, they are a bad cult. His comment appears to refer to immigrants.

I thought the right shut up in California on that issue and retreated to their attacks on women, gays, the poor and disabled, but really they simply hate living people. They honor the dead and all they lived and died to defend with marching music and flags and put words in their mouths saying they'd approve of the GOP's current policies.

Appreciate the other part of the main link:

However, Brown offered some praise of President Obama.

"I have to say this: I've never seen a cooler, more reasoned, intelligent candidate and leader than Obama. This man, under pressure, shows a lot of grace and a lot of thoughtfulness, and that's going to serve him well," Brown said.

The last link in the OP and the links it led to are also excellent. Thanks.

2. How nice. I think they should pull their

fucking heads out of their asses. It doesn't bother these idiots at all to ignore 12 million people. Democrats need to get a clue and bash them with that. Enough of fucking nice, these bastards are killing us.
