Thought for the day

February 8, 2012

My disdain for the Republican Party’s candidates stems from our need for thinkers to solve today’s problems and they have no first-rate thinkers. Worst yet, they have not had any since Teddy Roosevelt. Now, they are little more than carnival barkers praying on fear.  Eisenhower does not count, he was a first-rate thinker but also a RINO (Republican In Name Only).



  1. Good insight. The R’s are having trouble walking the tightrope of their coalition of social conservatives and the rich. That unnatural coalition makes it necessary to stoke anger and forget new ideas. The birds are coming home to roost.

    • You are so right about that Nadine. Since President Reagan, they have employed questionable tactics, including:

      1.Never allow the public to cool off
      2.Disseminate lies as widely and quickly as possible
      3.Always be vague and use innuendo
      4.Never admit a fault
      5.Never concede that there may be some good in your target
      6.Never leave room for alternative possibilities
      7.Never accept blame for anything and concentrate that blame on your enemy and blame him for everything that goes wrong.

      Seem to recall another political group is Europe using the same sort of tactics back in the 1930s and 40s. We all know how that ended.
