  •  The GOP has no new ideas!! (0+ / 0-)

    On the whole, the GOP has become an entrenched party beholden to tired and failed policies.  Whenever a Republican comes up with even the slightest shimmer of a new and reasonable idea, the fanatics on the conservative fridge will have nothing to do with it.  Conversely, Democrats are dangerously close to encountering a similar fate.  At the time, I thought the 2008 primary was evidence that the party was going in a new direction.  Like many of you, I have since become very discouraged to see much of the same.  2016 ought to be interesting.  Hope can be hard to come by at times.  But then I look lat people like Elizabeth Warren and Bill De Blasio (even if I am slightly concerned by some of his recent appointments) and my optimism returns.  Who Knows?  Only time will tell.
