    One wonders what the GOP will use in the 2014 elections.....Obama Sux ain't gonna cut it.

      Plus, they have nothing else. So I can see them using that one again.

      However, given the level of asshattery coming out of today's GOP AND its resulting 9% approval rating, they might not be as lucky this time around.

      •  Gay rights are no longer an issue. (1+ / 0-)

        People are seeing "Gay Marriage" happen right and left and the world didn't end. Great lakes of fire have failed to materialize.

        Guns? People are increasingly sickened of the destruction.  

        God? They can try to rally the mega-churches again, but the Tea Party message is in striking contrast with the one whom they claim to worship in those stadium-seating auditoriums.

        Republicans have had nothing substantial to offer for many years, other than tax cuts.  And now that government services and infrastructure are being curtailed right and left, many people are waking up to the consequences of constant budget cuts.

        They got nothing, but they'll spin some big lies and try to stir up fear. That's the only way Republicans have been elected since the 1950s.

      What will the Democrats use to attract voters and inspire them to carve out time to vote on election day.  The old 'We ain't quite as cruel and corrupt as the Republicans' just don't get people out to the polls.

      Republicans are doing everything they can to help the Democrats win.  But R's chasing away voters ain't the same as D's actually attracting them.

    •  Many agencies (0+ / 0-)

      that provide holiday food baskets for families in need had to stop offering Thanksgiving baskets to be able to get X-mas baskets to everyone.

      Now they might not have enough...

      Being attentive to the needs of others might not be the point of life, but it is the work of life. It can be ... almost impossibly difficult. But it is not something we give. It is what we get in exchange for having to die. - Jonathan Safran Foer
