GOP as the party of no, rather than a party of competing ideas

Here's the analysis:
http://news.yahoo.com/s/politico/20090226/pl_politico/19346

All you GOP supporters( I have noticed majority of women on CafeMom lean right) ... do you really want to be just a party of NO... and discourage anything and everything this administration does... I pray to GOD that the economy gets better... if it does within the next 2 years... although its good news for the nation... its bad news for GOP...

  • Obviously, any opinion piece will be slanted, and that one definitely is. What it fails to mention is that the GOP is not the party of no. Alternate plans and suggestions have been offered every step of the way, and Pelosi and Reid have universally declared NO, forbidding her minions to even acknowledge the plans on the floor in some cases. They are available online, on the GOP congressmen's websites, on pundit sites, and discussed in places like this, but they are not allowed a hearing on the house or senate floor. The party of no is the Dems, contrary to any effort Obama makes at encouraging bi-partisanship (the true example of who's in charge in Washington), who refuse to listen to anything unless someone makes them think it's their idea first.

  • The GOP has 3 default settings:
    1) Delay doing anything
    2) Deny that anything is wrong and needs to be fixed
    and
    3) Do nothing.

  • As a Republican, I want to know how much of my tax money are you going to be satisfied to squander to FIX what you perceive to be wrong?

    I would like to hire more people, but my taxes are through the roof!

  • Anon :11 Agree with you completely... they demonstrated that for the past 8 years. May be it was a party of ideas once upon a time... but now their idea about economy runs out after ' More Tax Cuts'

  • A true Fiscal Conservative would not accept all of this absurd Government spending. Some Republicans (note: they are NOT fiscal conservatives, imo) are twisted in the Bush era of spending and those particular Repubicans need to be weeded out. We need to implement Reaganomics into the Government.

  • mustbeGRACE... "Percieve to be wrong"... how much more proof do you need that evreything is wrong... Thats the problem with repulicans... classic denial... Open your eyes for god's sake... how many more companies do you want to see collapsed and how many more jobs should be lost and how many more houses need to be foreclosed before you acknowledge there is a problem .. let alone come up with a solution...!!!

  • Cutting taxes for businesses creates jobs.
    Need jobs?

    Barney Frank needed everyone to have a house, whether they could afford it or not!
    Only 7% of mortgages payments are NOT being paid.
    Wonder who they are.
