Friday Big Blue Smurf Blogging: What They Said
Posted by Jill | 7:07 AM
today's honoree: Rick Moran over at, of all places, The Moderate Voice, on Why the GOP Will Probably Fail.

Money quote:
Note that there has been very little talk about the GOP “Pledge to America” since it was rolled out a month ago. In fact, the party leadership has avoided specifics about what they plan to do with this great victory. No grandiose plan to get the jobs machine pumping up employment. No details about a legislative strategy to repeal Obamacare or any other agenda item. There is nothing but empty platitudes and harsh criticism – well deserved – of the Democrats.

It begs the question of just what Republicans plan to do with their victory?

What appears they will do is investigate the Obama administration for a host of transgressions – real and imagined. There will be endless posturing about the debt. The president’s commission on the deficit will receive short shrift from both sides, so their recommendations will have as much impact as those of the Baker Commission on the Iraq War. Obama will blame the “do-nothing” GOP congress while the Republicans will blame “obstructionist” Democrats.

And in the end, we’ll all come back to square one and be stuck with the same high unemployment and sluggish economy, with no prospects for improvement.

Only in America is verifiable stupidity and deceit considered qualification for elected office.

The GOP and it's Tea Party minions are running people not qualified to manage a KFC. What they will get if they win will be a lot more damaging than salmonella poisoning.
