As I wrote in an earlier blog, the GOP just does not get it and they seem to think that eating their own is a good idea. Mitt Romney insulted Sarah Palin in an interview on CNN’s State of the Union program on Sunday. There is a full article on that here. He was asked about Time Magazine referring to Sarah Palin as one of the most influential people in America and he asked if it was actually the most beautiful people that Time was referencing. What an idiotic move! We already had the left defining Palin as just a pretty face with no brain and now the supposed leadership in the GOP is doing the same thing.
But wait there is more from this GOP gang that is trying to promote themselves as a grassroots movement moving the GOP forward. Eric Cantor and Mitt Romney blamed the 2008 loss on the economic crisis and not on anything the GOP had done. CNN has a story and video on that here. Mitt Romney commented to John King, “I frankly believe that much of what happened in the last election revolved around the fact that the economy fell apart at the time we were, if you will, holding the hot potato. Republicans and Democrats have been playing this game, passing the hot the potato, spending money like there was no tomorrow.”
Well, if these men (notice that no women are a part of this new campaign and includes only white men) would take two seconds to pay attention to the actual grassroots, they might get a clue what the GOP needs to change in order to be successful in the future. I voted Republican because Sarah Palin was on the ticket. Otherwise, the GOP would not have received my vote and I am in the majority when it comes to conservatives.
Listen up boys – we plan on firing you all, so stop wasting your time traversing the country!
