I think it is the Presidents decisions/policies that are disliked. At least by me.
Although i would rather lie in dogsh# than align with the TP.
And for me the choice is not ideological. I am luke-warm on the President's best policies and whole-heartedly disagree with other policies. But the
ugliest woman in the room looks like a super-model when they stand beside Jabba-the-hut.
In that context my frustration with the GOP is two-fold. One...being their rapid slide toward a vitriolic/emotionally driven platform vs. the Fiscal
responsibility they used to demonstrate and Two...Their failure brings unwarranted, over-sized praise to Democrats, who while sane, still need honest
and rational critique and competition/push back in our national discourse.
Otherwise...The Dems say we need to spend more on education, infra-structure, new-tech investment etc. and the GOP of old would retort...how much
money do we have and what will the return on investment be? Will this actually work and if so, how can we do it at the least cost and in the most
effective manner etc. How to boost jobs and economic growth with the least expense and the least involvement of government. Between the two, practical
solutions are agreed upon. BUT the current GOP's retort...eff you, you socialist, communist pigs..we will shut down government!!
Put another way...thanks to the current sad state of the GOP ...The bar for political success has been set at the lowly "Sane" standard...and
Americans deserve much better than that.
