My feeling is that if a new party does not step forward to replace the former Republican party then President Obama should be allowed to stay on for a third term.
So I ask you, if there is in fact a new party ready to step up to the plate in 2016, knowing that they will not be the Republican party, who will they be... Or, are we ready to accept the fact that Mr. Obama should stay on until at least 2020? I think he should, based on the amount of damage that has been done. What do you think?
BAD assumptions all 'round.

Actually I would support a third term for Obama and I believe there is more than a 50% chance that he would win. He has the most formidable electoral coalition of any President I've seen in recent times.

I see. So your INTOLERANCE of white males, senior citizens, heterosexuals, middle-class/wealthy, responsible, hardworking, free-thinking, entrepreneurial, tax paying American citizens represents the Group Think of the global mosaic, does it? Those folks have no right to their opinions? Their "vision" is evil compared to yours?

Every group you listed is already part of the GOP except for the illegal aliens.

...and I can't understand why the GOP thinks people who came here illegally and keep a low profile would waltz into a voting station.
They are actually. They just came here 400 years ago, and called themselves english settlers is all

I think you are seeing major members distance themselves from the tea party. Now that they are a liability their influence will be limited to hard right states. You will see them now go a bit more to the middle.

There is no way the Republicans will win by trying to get those votes. They need to appeal the moral majority, the sensible, the hard-working producers in the country and they will find themselves back on top just like in 2010. No more phoney conservatives like Romney!
If you listen to Rush you are just another friggin moron.

To the ignore list with you.
