Reign of Terror Abating - GOP Going Downhill Fastposted by Bill Arnett @ 1:54 PM Permalink
The American public has finally awakened to the fact that bush has been such a disaster people are fleeing the Republican Party in record numbers. The GOP brand has been so damaged by bush and his policies that it may not, god-willing, ever recover what luster it may have previously enjoyed.
I comes as no surprise to me and I am greatly comforted by the ever-shrinking numbers of rethuglicans.
The Los Angeles Times has the story, where they reveal:
Public allegiance to the Republican Party has plunged during George W. Bush's presidency…a major survey has found.…The survey, by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, found a "dramatic shift" in political party identification since 2002, when Republicans and Democrats were at rough parity. Now, 50% of those surveyed identified with or leaned toward Democrats, whereas 35% aligned with Republicans.…"There are cycles in history where one party or one movement ascends for a while and then it sows the seeds of its own self-destruction," said Bruce Bartlett, a conservative analyst and author of the 2006 book "Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy."…Bartlett added, "It's clear we have come to an end of a Republican conservative era."Hooray! Where do we send flowers and cards to celebrate the prospective death of a political party that has done so much damage to America? How will we recover our honor, integrity, and diplomatic capabilities? How will we, and how soon, recover the right of habeas corpus ? Can we close Gitmo, stop torturing people, stop the rape and pillaging of the Treasury and our economy? When will we bring the troops home and stop all the nonsense about preemptive war and wars of aggression?
Can we now begin to focus on improving America and the lives of all Americans and stop spending trillions trying to conquer other countries?
Yes, there can be no doubt that bush "…[has] sow[n] the seeds of [the GOPs] own self-destruction." If the GOP does collapse under the weight of bush corruption then it may be that we all owe a vote of thanks to the president for single-handedly sowing those seeds.
