This is a serious question.

After Democrats gained control of the White House, House and Senate... Republicans have moved so far too the right and been spouting out all types of crazy and extreme statements from economy, religion, foreign policy, women's rights etc.

What is the reasoning behind this? Do they feel that they lost popularity in 2008 because their party was not far enough right?

2010, remember it? Didn't think so.

Let me refresh your memory. 2010 was a historic election that was a response to the extremism of the Democrat Party - not the Republican Party.

Your attempts to smear conservatives and rewrite history fail miserably, just like your President and your political party.

Did you notice what happened during the mid term elections? I dont' know how you lose popularity and gain all those seats and governor chairs.

In '08 millions bought the media laced hope and change nonsense. They aren't anymore. I guess to you that makes them crazy?

It was a result from the Republican propaganda machine making it seem that the debt problem started with Obama and that we should have fully recovered within 1.5 years.

Perhaps because we recognize the threat to our nation and it's constitution that is the socialist party known as the Democratic Party.

There is a difference between legitimate rape and rape. A baby born from rape is God's will. Obama is a Muslim sleeper terrorist. The world is on the verge of collapse because of Iran. Hurricane Sandy is punishment from God. There have been a few moderate Republican politicians that have left the party because they have become too extreme.

No it came more from seeing how Obama and crew operated by forcing Obamacare through when 60-70% of the people did not want it.

He is one of the most unqualified people we've ever had in politics. Never held a real job in the real world.
