    God hates the GOP and especially the heathen Mitt Romney. Using the GOP's own logic, rejection of science, and blind faith in the creator what other conclusion can one draw from this storm?

    Well, if romney record was so great as governor of Massachusetts why didn't he run for reelection?” . “I mean if you didn't want to even stand before the people of Massachusetts and run on your record–if it was that great, why did you bail out?

    They want to remake the image of the Republican Party. In substance, it has not changed. It is still the same science-rejecting and reality-denying Republican Party.

    There is no way that bunch of out-of touch of liars, haters, fools and just plain stupid people can redefine anything.
    They should just go away with Akin and Ryan and start from scratch.

    Gov. Walker is an idiot. Why is he praising success when Wisconsin is one of the top States still unemployed, loosing jobs consecutively and continuing to loose small and big businesses. He needs to get back into Wisconsin and fix the issues he has here, before he cries out success. – And, Paul Ryan needs to own up for sendin 4-letters to the White House praising the successes of the stimulus, and the fact it helped and created jobs.

    So what I hear them saying is that to reach out to woman and Hispanics is to talk about the economy and money. They basically said they be against woman's healthcare and immigration as long as we make you money.

    This is the shallowest and most shameless political party in a century. Greedy, selfish and self-righteous.

    I think they need to start over , try something new and honest.

    It must be hard to go from GW Bush to Romney and act like its any different.

    Romney = GW Bush , you can change the packaging , but it's the same brand .

    The Republican Party does not offer moderates a place. Everyone has to have the same belief system which is very conservative. those in charge have become strident in their belief that no moderate or liberal should apply. Members of Congress feel the need to be very conservative and if they stray, they are pulled back or they face opposition from more conservative politicians at election time.
