For My Republican Friends

As a patriotic American, the last thing I want to see is a major political party fail. GOP leaders will eventually have to come up with their own ideas to get us out of the mess we’re in and I hope they are good ones. In the meantime, I offer the following as consideration for a theme song that captures their current philosophy of governance. The idea was inspired by media reports of Republican leadership’s damn dubious decision to begin to criticize Obama’s mortgage plan before it was announced and Alexis de Toadville’s mention of walking a mile in the shoes of the great Groucho. I hope to see this in campaign ads that should begin to run for November 2010 in about a week.

I'm a 40 year old lawyer living in Ridgeland, Mississippi. I'm several years and a couple hundred miles removed from most of my old running buddies so I started the blog to provide an outlet for many of the observations and ideas that used to be the subjects of our late night/happy hour/halftime conversations and arguments.

    Republicans shouldn’t be too upset with the mortgage plan. Its pretty much what John Mccain proposed during the campaign with very minor differences.

    Republican might not be too upset….but conservatives are…..McCain’s proposals left me cold

    i’m sure it’s hirarious…i’ve had the audio turned turned off on my laptop for some time and can’t remember how to turn it back on….

  5. quail09, are you making fun of Oriental people? “hirarious”?

    Seriously, I can see where conservatives would be legitimately upset. Republicans, on the other hand, are just upset that the money is not being spent on their pet projects/industries. But they don’t have a problem, generally, with bloated federal spending and power.

    Wrongo…..conservatives do have a problem with bloated spending etc……generic, moderate republicans don’t…..and they are not conservatives……

  7. Right. Conservatives have a problem with over-spending and expanding government power.

    Republicans don’t have a problem with it as long as it protects and/or is for their wards/benefactors.

    “Republican” does not equal “conservative.” At least not in my adult life time.

    Which is why I consider myself an Independent. I don’t get to spend money like this because I do not have it to spend. I’m not crazy about forking out alot of cash to people with no guidelines on how it is to be spent. For better or worse, I was brought up to understand that when someone hands you a boatload of money there are usually strings attached and I understand that way of thinking.
