The latest Rasmussen survey has an interesting analysis of the race up in Ny-23 and what it says about the GOP. The most interesting aspect of it was what it says about what the party base has to say about the Republican leadership - specifically those in Congress.
According to the survey, 73% of Republicans believe that the congressional GOP has lost touch with the party's base. Which just pins a number of what we've known and experienced for the last several years or more.
What's even more interesting, or perhaps revealing, is the way the folks on the other side of the aisle feel...
...while Republican voters say their congressional representatives are out of touch, a plurality (47%) of Democratic voters view their members of Congress as roughly in the same place they are ideologically. Just 27% say the average Democratic member of Congress is more liberal than the average Democrat, while 19% think the average Democrat in Congress is more conservative.
In other words, Democrats in Congress are more representative of their party's base than Republicans are. And when you consider that twice as many Americans self-identify themselves as conservatives, it better explains the level of anger and frustration that's bubbling up all across the country. read more »
That is correct, we are now the terrorists; that is according to the far left African-American wing of the Democratic Party.
I am, of course, referring to this absolutely asinine rant here. I would quote that bunch of nonsensical prattle on this blog and respond to it directly; but I am afraid that my emotions would get the best of me and I would say something that I might regret later. Leave it to the idiotic Socialist Liberal Democrats, to turn a fact finding mission, about an admitted Communist, who said everything and I do mean everything; under the damn sun about white people into a "White vs Black" witch hunt; starring of course; Glenn Beck.
The truth is folks, this had nothing to do with "White vs Black" and everything to do with Right vs Wrong. In fact, here is Glenn Back's Statement about Van Jones's ouster:
The American people stood up and demanded answers. Instead of providing them, the Administration had Jones resign under cover of darkness. I continue to be amazed by the power of everyday Americans to initiate change in our government through honest questioning, and judging by the other radicals in the administration, I expect that questioning to continue for the foreseeable future.
