Is GOP Leadership Stupid, Incompetent or Slap-Crazy?

The answer is yes.

Click here to get information on Todd’s national gathering of Christians!

I’d like to know who in their right mind thought it was a good idea to run eleven Republicans in Georgia’s sixth congressional district race.

Instead of a decisive victory, Republican Karen Handel is now faced with a summer runoff against Democrat Jon Ossoff.

It’s as if Republican leadership fell out of the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down.

      Yes to all questions. The only good thing here is that the Socialist Democrats were jumping for joy over the chance that they could win this seat because the leadership was so stupid as to give them the possibility of getting 50%. Now, Republican National people is the time to spend some money, get some people on the street, get some ads on the box and stop standing around contemplating at your navels.

      Agreed, backpacker. I imagine the large number of contenders for that position was purely because the GOP is “on top” at the moment, and the career-politician wannabe opportunists flocked to Georgia–the only election going at the moment–to hop on that bandwagon.

      After all, if they somehow manage to get ELECTED, they WIN–even if they are thrown out after one term–because their FELLOW career politician opportunists have voted themselves a pension at FULL PAY for LIFE after serving only one term. Not to mention all the OTHER goodies they have voted themselves at the expense of the taxpayers. They even have fat annual pay raises rigged where they AUTOMATICALLY take effect, without ANY of them having to go on record as you know, actually VOTING for it. They have to actually vote NO to prevent the pay raise from going into effect! One of the career politician VERMIN who was in danger of losing his seat on the govt. gravy train could always make THAT grand gesture to show the rubes back home how he/she is looking out for their interests. They figure us rubes out here in flyover country are TOO STUPID to see how they have rigged the system in THEIR favor!

      Sorry if I seem cynical,but the above is 99% of what we have in Congress today. Anybody see a PROBLEM with that? I sure do! Can’t help recalling what George Wallace said about them: Republican or Democrat, there’s not a DIME’S WORTH of difference between them!

      I would almost be happier if they WERE crazy. That at least might give some apologies for why they stupidly ran 11 (i thought it was 16) GOP members for the 1 vacancy. IMO all so they could clog up the votes to deny any dem from getting a majority.

      BUT the fact the main dem still got 48% of the vote is very worrying..

      You hit the nail on the head. RINO’s are deceitful Socialist Dems disguised. THey throw out and posture conservative while when issues that would challenge their Socialist Dem brethren they either flip-flop or act like idiots or put delay after delay into effect.

      The Dem party is ruled almost totally by socialist Dems. That party has gotten so bad that I call it the Demoncratic Party, have not come up with a good name for the Repub leadership yet. The loyal American’s for the most part abandoned the Dem party. The Socialist Liberal RINO’s and Dem’s are paid by and support their New World Order banker bosses.

      I have written and warned Trump about RYAN. I saw pictures of him getting into a car with escorts used by Obama. The reporter followed them to a building. Ryan was getting heat after his failed attempt, really planned to fail, at a new health plan to replace Obamacare. The reporter reported that when he went into the undisclosed building he was down and upset and when he came out he was smiling and happy. Obviously being the escorts for Obama, he probably was the one who talked to Ryan.

      Look, the New World Order international money banker controllers are out to use ‘their people’ in Dem and RINO’s to stop and discredit Trump any way that they can – in and outside of their controlled media. Having a president who actually is trying to act and do good for America threatens the NWO globalist desire for control.

He has always been against President Trump since he campaigned and he is still working against him. ryan needs to step down and we need a conservative who has the best interest of the country to step up and take his place. We have too many rinos in Congress who are obama fans and that is the biggest problem why President Trump is having problems getting things done, especially the healthcare bill. ryan wants to keep obamacare as do many of the members of Congress. mccain is another rino who is also a liar and a coward lives on his military experience although most of it is false.

    Such things are not only happening in Georgia — look at Congress where the Republicans had YEARS to come up with a replacement plan for obamacare and failed miserably. In the end, they took obamacare and tweaked it a bit and then wondered why all Republicans didn’t vote for it. The GOP leadership is a failure — McConnell, Ryan, national GOP leadership and related ‘stupid, incompetent, and slap-crazy.’ And, another thing, we call the Democrats stupid, but at least when they come up with something they agree to stick together. As Republicans we get the negatives from the GOP and few positives. Thank God that Trump is president because without him, the Republican Party would be DISMAL..!!

    I would just like to see someone run for congress on an “I’m going to represent my constituents” platform and “strictly abide by the Constitution”. Unfortunately the majority of congress represents lobbyist. Senators have not been responsible to their respective states since the seventeenth amendment was passed around 100 years ago. Members of the house who were and are supposed to be answerable to the people of their districts have become independent puppets for anything anti-American and communist. They can’t even repeal their communist obamacare **** ! I bet if the people of this nation forced a constitutional amendment forcing congress to abide by EVERY and ANY law they passed we would see a lot of the dictatorial laws disappear !

      The problem is that Party Politics greets them all along the way…from the time that they declare, to, especially, when they show up at Congress. There, they begin to represent what the Party wants them to do as with the Party Whip who lines up votes according to what the Party wants. If they don’t comply, then the Party leaders won’t do anything for them in the way of legislation, allocations, or related. They start out wanting to represent but once in Congress, they mostly represent the Party’s interests. Currently, because Ryan is a weak Speaker, there is some defection of the Party line as with ACA and conservatives. But, that’s mostly because of Ryan not being effective – or not caring about that legislation.

    The obvious one is, at least in my view, the system was not designed for career politicians who become so entrenched, so jaded and so out of touch with their constituency, so influenced by lobbyists and special interest groups, that they develop a serious case of self-serving tunnel vision. Many times they are in lock step with their party to the detriment of those they’re elected by, who would be so much better served to remove that person and replace them with somebody fresh out of society who is actually in touch with what is happening at the street level now, not twenty years ago.

      What is needed is to change the CULTURE in Congress–so they finally understand that we are TIRED of “representatives” who represent ONLY themselves and their special interest campaign donors, and will NO LONGER TOLERATE that kind of “government.”

      Congressional TERM LIMITS–with an accompanying prohibition on members of Congress becoming lobbyists after they leave office–is probably the ONLY “cure” in the long run. Only by making it impossible for ANY politician to make a “career” out of his/her Congressional office, can we put a stop to government of, by, and FOR career politicians and their fat-cat campaign bankrollers.

      ituser, that little bill they passed to give themselves a pension at FULL PAY after only ONE TERM in Congress is one of the reasons we need TERM LIMITS. Congress should NOT be able to get a pension at FULL PAY for life after serving only one term. NOBODY ELSE has a deal like that. Everybody ELSE must work a MINIMUM of 20 years to get a pension that is FAR from full pay! In fact, pension benefits have largely DISAPPEARED from the private sector, thanks in LARGE part to the ever-spiralling cost of health care. Nowadays, you get a 401K that you fund with your OWN money, and if you are VERY LUCKY, your employer will kick in a percentage of your contributions.

      Somewhere along the way Congress got the idea they are some kind of royalty or elite, and not subject to the rules the REST OF US have to live by. Moreover, they view we, the people as their SERVANTS, and THEMSELVES as the “masters.” THAT needs to stop!

    There is no excuse for the disarray in the GOP. There is poor leadership, esp in the house, followed closely by the senate. Local GOP folks should have tried to limit the number of candidates running. Same could be said for the GOP presidential candidates last year. When you can’t get a clear consensus from the electorate, you weaken your position. Luckily this still wet behind the ears “carpet bagger” dem, failed by just 2 %age points from winning the seat outright. Will the GOP leadership learn from this? probably not. I like Speaker Ryan, but let’s not forget he took the position reluctantly and IMO he has failed to do his job. We should have known about the Healthcare issues LONG before a vote was brought.

    Your article indicates you have no clue how the GOP operates on a local level. Republicans choose who runs through a primary. Republicans do not get together before hand and have elected officials appoint candidates. That is how socialist regimes work. If someone wants to run for the Republican nomination for an office, they can. It is up to the people to select the candidate, not the party officials. If you want your party officials to select the candidates, become a Democrat. Democrats: Party First, People last.

      Actually, Zeke, primaries are ANOTHER Democrat invention, and are largely responsible for the MESS we have now! Thanks to PRIMARIES, an election cycle becomes a GRUELLING and costly year-long MARATHON where only somebody who is a multi-millionaire/billionaire or sold out and owned body and SOUL by special interests to get campaign funds before they are even ELECTED can afford to stay in the race through all the primaries.

      Primaries also give the Commucrats the time to discredit and DESTROY at their leisure, ANY candidate who is so foolish to run for office when he/she is not already OWNED by this unholy “establishment.

      We got MUCH BETTER candidates for President when the nominations were done at the conventions, PERIOD, and candidates had only 2-3 months to run for the office once they were nominated.

      Until the 22nd Amendment was passed, Congress members were elected by state legislatures, which actually gave more “local” control and accountability on members of Congress than the current system. So, in short, the Commucrats have screwed up the elective process the same way they screwed up everything ELSE!

      oleteabag,

      The 22nd amendment term limited the President. The House has always been elected by popular vote. Now the 17th amendment changed the way the Senate was chosen, and I agree that it should be repealed. The states were originally given power over the senate to prevent a power grab by the federal government. You can see what has happened without that check and balance.

      But still my position stands, if the Republicans want to be a party of the people, then the people should choose the candidates, not the party hacks which are mostly RINOs.

      $8.2million was a start and a Dem spouting more conservative views may have appealed to left if center Repub.

    Yeah but that is not as dumb as running on a “Winning by losing” strategy. I mean that really doesn’t work just like “Leading from behind’ didn’t work either. I hope the Democrats improve their strategy to “Leading by losing” in the coming run-off. That way they can feel like they’ve made a real contribution while still Participating. We can give them a Trophy.

    Term limits are the answer to ingrained stubborn old cranky people getting in national public office. When your state comes to the starting blocks to vote for participation in the Convention of the States jump on board.

    Absotootly to all the above! For far too many decades, the GOP has been little, if anything, other than Democrat lite! Over the past 20-30 years, at one time or other, they have controlled both houses of government, only to squander it away. Now, the country is over run with those ‘dependent’ on government – guess where those votes go? Scarier, is the absolute fact that ‘we the people’ have become so dumbed down or, too busy coming up with our family’s next meal, that America has become the Titanic, ‘after’ the iceberg! Pessimistic, perhaps, more a pragmatist, in thinking the good ship America has taken on ‘too much water’ to turn around.

    It is simple, the Repub leadership like Ryan are traitors to America like most Dems are – no different just playing roles in the Hegellian Dialectic to move people from being moral and conservative to liberal and socialst pawns that embrace and push the New World Order agenda on America. Such are criminals and should be in jail or banned from America confiscating their assets, that they probably were paid by the NWO bankers.

    One individual reported how the Repubs tried 80 times to repeal the ACA and now KNOWING Obama would repeal it. Now that Trump is waiting to agree with them and sign a good bill the Repubs have NOT tried once.

    Answer is simple – the socialist RINO’s leading the RNC along with their socialist Dem brethren planned it to fail – just as Ryan’s counter to ACA was planned to fail.

    DRAIN THE SWAMP NNNN OOOO WWWW!!!!

    oleteabag; I hear you, and agree. Must change what the lifers are doing.
    Define lifer: a person who spends an entire career in the same job.
    many of those politicians have been lying to we the people for many years.
    They will lie to get back into office, and do the same thing all over again.
    Some of the old farts been in office 30 years, that is a career and more.

    Something MUST be done to stop the lying politicians making a career as a politician, to get the Ill-gotten gains and retirement to boot.
    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH of that, send them home for good.

    Is GOP Leadership Stupid, Incompetent or Slap-Crazy?Is GOP Leadership Stupid, Incompetent or Slap-Crazy? No, at least not for the reasons stated here. The number of candidates is determined by how many pay their filing fee, not by Party leadership. Your comments should be directed at the 10 superfluous Republicans if anyone, but who knew which 10 were going to be superfluous?

    What many either don’t know, or, for whatever reason, choose to ignore, is that Mrs. Paul Ryan is a big-time Dem/Lib lobbyist swamp-rat. It’s nigh on to impossible to believe that Paul RINO is not simpatico and influenced by pillow-talk. If their professional roles do not constitute a serious conflict of interest, (if anybody believes Ryan’s claim to Conservatism), then I don’t know what conflict of interest is. Again, if we’re to believe Ryan is a Republican, as he claims, (but clearly does not exhibit in practice), then he and his wife are dedicated to opposing agendas. It is alarmingly clear, however, which agenda is pre-eminent. Why does no one call him out for this? Why are we out here in the real world the ones to call attention to it all? WHY IS HE STILL SPEAKER?

    Right on Mary:
    ” Mary Kaiserman April 22, 2017 at 9:34 am

    You are so right. And paul ryan is also married to a democrat lobbyist. He has always been against President Trump since he campaigned and he is still working against him. ryan needs to step down and we need a conservative who has the best interest of the country to step up and take his place. We have too many rinos in Congress who are obama fans and that is the biggest problem why President Trump is having problems getting things done, especially the healthcare bill. ryan wants to keep obamacare as do many of the members of Congress. mccain is another rino who is also a liar and a coward lives on his military experience although most of it is false.”

    Thanks for the info.
