Only 22 percent of Americans identify themselves as Republicans, a shrinking political party in search of a new identity. They’re perceived as arrogant, smug, self-righteous, mean, extremist, with Cheney, Limbaugh as their leaders. The only new blood on the horizon is Sarah Palin and Bobby Jindal, not the best and brightest. Why not promote moderate Colin Powell?
Cheney is hell-bent promoting torture and bashing Obama to protect his own image and legacy. During World War II we executed Japanese generals for “water boarding” Americans (enhanced interrogation techniques).
Why only 22 percent? Failed trickle-down economics and business run wild. Fox-in-the-chicken-house policies brought us the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Make no mistake, W and the GOP are directly responsible for this economy.
•Bush Justice Department antitrust efforts were non-existent.
•SEC Chairman Chris Cox purposely left Wall Street unchallenged while pandering to Bernie Madoff.
•Bush renominated “laissez faire” Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan.
•Bush ran Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac with GOP rubber stamps.
•Pandered drug and insurance companies skyrocketed health care costs.
•Pampered CEOs were rewarded for running companies into the ground.
Is it any wonder Americans are abandoning the GOP?
