Republican Goal: 30 Senators in 2012

Thus far the Republicans continue to distinguish themselves during the economic crisis by constantly criticizing anything produced by the Obama administration and offering up tax cuts as a solution to complex financial problems. The leader of the GOP, Rush Limbaugh, has openly stated that his goal is for Obama to fail. That is a logical goal for the Republicans because if Obama succeeds in any measure this society will undergo changes in the near future that will be totally unacceptable to Republicans and conservatives of all breeds and strains.

The problem with a policy of "Lets hope the other guy fails" is that it doesn't put you in a position of offering constructive realistic solutions as alternatives. The Republicans have offered alternatives, and they are on the Internet, but they fail to address such issues as what to do with AIG and Citigroup, as well as the Detroit automakers, if any or all threatened to implode. So, if the recession abates before the 2010 election, then the Republicans can expect to lose more seats in the House and the Senate. If by 2012, the recession is either completely or largely over, then the Republicans face another massacre in the election and will be lucky to have 30 senators. Then they will be able to hold caucuses in the minority leader's office

Rush Limbaugh, the leader of the GOP. Man you guys put me in stitches with the stuff you put out! Let me guess Keith Olbermann is the leader of the Democrats, right?
