  •  GOP knows its limitations (1+ / 0-)

    To paraphrase Dirty Harry: The GOP is a good party and a good party knows its limitations.

    If the only goal of the Republican Party is to make sure that the president is either a one-term president or that he fails, what does this say about the party?
    That its leaders are only interested in obtaining and maintaining their grasp on power or at the minimum effectively denying that power to their opponents.  The means has become the ends.

    The problem is that today's GOP is built on a base of fear and resentment.  The governmental programs that can logically come from that basis are so awful that their supporters would flee if they attempted to put them into practice.
