GOP Continues to Be The Party of George W. Bush


    By all means, if you think George W. Bush was a great president, then vote Republican this November. If not, then don’t. Because today’s Republican Party is in no way, shape, or form different from the Party of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Tom DeLay, and that whole crazy crowd.

    P.S. And I challenge you to “refudiate” any of that. Heh.

    • … is like trying to nail Jell-o to the wall.

    • Dan Sullivan

      but check it out after a dip in cold reality.

    • WTH

      Today’s Republican party is even crazier.

      of everything the good Senator from Texas is saying is darned near impeccable! If you accept the basic Republican frame, what he says is internally consistent and believable. This is typical Republican tactics: carefully set up the framework, inclue within it “facts” or data that buttress your pre-decided conclusions, exclude anything that might gainsay your pre-conclusion (i.e., exclude reality), and argue endlessly around and around within the frame—- it all comes together nicely, seems logical, and convinces those who do not understand what is actually going on, and that means, apparently, all of the Senator’sconstituents.

      This is why I keep saying to Democrats, stop accepting Republican frames, open up the discussion outside the frame, make a flank attack using different premises, enunciate an opposing philosophy. Don’t go off on Republican-sponsored tangential issues or nonsense. If you do not, you are fighting on the Republican choice of ground, and you will lose. Get the hell out of Republicanland.
