GOP thinks they can make a comeback after shedding Bush

Top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell says that the GOP can start to make a comeback now that the unpopular Bush is out of the picture. McConnell likened Bush to a "millstone around our necks".

What is interesting is that Republicans are only eager to get rid of Bush because of his unpopularity, not because of his policies. So, they do not or refuse to understand why Bush was unpopular in the first place and just want to push the same ideas and expect them to work the next time around. This type of wishful thinking and superficial analysis will doom the GOP for the next few years until they wake up and come up with something innovative.

    When this Socialists gets through, you'll be glad to have Bush back. This friggin' guy is screwing up the country daily. Soon you will have to get permission to take a leak.

    Bush goofed up and Obama destroyed all oppertunities. We are not a socialist nation like England and the Europeans. Change is drastically needed again or we will fall into mederocraty and become a third world country.

    i haven't heard a word out of Bush since Obama was elected! Why isn't everyone happy they have a new president? I imagine Bush is happy to be out of the White House...so what's the problem? The Republicans will come us with someone new in 3 years, hopefully better than before and Obama will undoubtedly run again so you have 3 years to change what you want to change. Quit living in the past.

    Is keeping Americans enslaved to the insurance industry a brand of GOP conservatism? Is keeping the infant death rate higher than it is in Cuba a brand of conservatism? Is keeping the life expectancy well below that of Canada’s a brand of conservatism? Is keeping a health care system in tack whereby more and more Americans are left without affordable health care, forced into bankruptcy and poverty and die early, a brand of conservatism? Is hammering and diminishing the middle class a brand of conservatism? Is saying that the best way to insure all Americans is to provide them with jobs and then pursue policies whereby millions of jobs, homes and (life savings) investments are lost a brand of conservatism? Is giving huge tax cuts to the rich whereby they can then deposit such windfalls in Swiss Vaults a brand of conservatism? Is standing by to rake in blood money from keeping the infant death rate high, which blocking reforms is sure to do, a form of conservatism? Is it the goal of conservatism to keep blocking reform and leave the uninsured elderly no option but to be shown where the grave is at?

    The American voters should in no wise be permitted to forget the abject and horrid mess that the GOP/conservatives left. They weren’t content to just leave a drunken puke of a mess, foreign and domestic, but they have compounded the matter by refusing to help in cleaning up. They have, in effect, stated that they wish for the efforts to clean up their colossal mess to fail. And, they are seeking to bring about that failure by standing shoulder to shoulder, all of them, on the sidelines throwing rocks at those, who are doing the cleanup work.

    If this is the level of lack of sense of responsibility, lack of patriotism and lack of common decency that more and more GOP Americans are aspiring to, then, God help us all. The Reverend Wright is oh so right. And this is not just a deal with Bush. We are seeing a GOP/conservative agenda being played out. If America accepts this, then anyone, who says that this is a Christian nation, is a reprobate and liar.

    Us conservatives, and I mean conservatives, not these mushrooms who piggyback off of us, get back into power we can get this country going again. Right now we are bogged down to the hilt with 1960s radicals and communist. Gotta clean house and get government out of our lives.

    Little does Mitch McConnell know,"he is close to being removed from office", his last win was a close call. And yet he still does not get it. It is not just Bush that was unpopular, it was his party. You cannot expect 20% of Americans to control the lives and morals of the other 80%. Majority rules, and when the Christian right does what it preaches, "turn the other cheek" then they will stop the bleeding in the GOP. But by then we will not have a Grand Ole Party, and to use their phrase "Thank God for that!"

    republicans need to have a policy not just try to find faults with dem policies. some of the criticism are even lies and distortions, i am a registered republican and am totally disenchanted by the party their agenda is just like the muslim fundamentalist they are just christian wackos and anti science and facts, we need to have a new party of fiscal conservative, socially liberal, and believers of scientific facts. either this party changes or we are doomed if they are voted in we as a country will go back to the middle ages.

    The republicans will have a chance when they accept that it is the 21 century and they are the party of failure and they need to leave the past behind. We don't need more voodoo economics from the fat cats on the right

    The GOP will never regain anything until they get rid of all the Rhinos. These people are wimps only interested in holding on to their jobs. Put people with gonads in office and you'll see a good America again. Until then, grab your ankles.

    Agree. We're constipated with Rhinos who are nothing more than political wimps. Get rid of all. Wait until they pass this "crap and Trade". Then you will see all those people who are enamored by King Barack start p------------------------and moaning. Then when he destroys healthcare a revolution will start in.........It's coming folk. Time is running out.
