Then they made it just as clear that they were waiting for The President to bend. No change in their position. They also stated that; the fact that; the House remained a Republican majority indicated that the people were in harmony with their tax policy.
But as they say; “Denial is more than a river in Egypt”
“The Party” is in deep shit. Their base is shrinking as we speak.
Americans are far too savvy these days to be duped by such clumsy actors and liars as Mitt Romney and even a good liar would be hard put to pull the wool over the eyes of America now. The young; the poor; the immigrants; the informed; the sceptical; all are too wise to buy into the “Sieg Heil” conformity that “The Party” demands; indeed; needs to exist.
The Republican Party has put a lot into seducing the poor white Fundamentalist “Christians”. This has been one of the reasons for their strong Right-Wing stance on matters best left to the individual’s conscience.
What will they do now? The fundamentalists may well desert the Party if it relaxes it’s stance on some issues.”The Party” will be seen as completely obstructionist if they do not relax some. If that happens; they will continue to lose seats in Congress.
The problem; the one these guys don’t get is; America doesn’t want their brand of Nationalism, Militarism, or Fascism. As even the Republicans will tell you; the demographics of this country are rapidly changing and the prevailing wind is blowing Left.
So pretending to move left won’t help the Republicans in the end.Their actions will show their colors.
I suspect that eventually; the Republican Party will go the way of the Dinosaur.
Another Party will likely emerge. A Party farther Left than the Democrats.
What a position to find ourselves in.
