The GOP at war–with itself

Don’t miss Kos’s front pager on the hilarious spectacle of Michael Steele and Rush Limbaugh engaging each other for control of the GOP. As Markos says about Steele:

When you have to proclaim that “I’m the leader of the Republican Party”, then you are not.

Limbaugh is apparently going to respond to Steele on the radio, which should be hilarious. While most of the news these days ranges from terrible to awful, the Republican Party base genuflecting to Rush Limbaugh is awesomely awesome.

Limbaugh may be the king of AM conservative radio, but that’s not exactly a winning coalition. In fact, it’s not even a coalition, it’s just the tattered remnants of the “angry white male” devotees from twenty years ago. The country has moved on, and normal people want to confront the economic crisis in a meaningful way.

My crystal ball is at the Teletype office having new, lower stock ticker numbers installed, but could this be the true beginning of the end for the Republicans? Hard to see how any “moderates,” meaning in the case of the GOP anyone who isn’t certifiable, can survive in the Limbaugh Party.

UPDATE–Kos points to this post at The Plum Line, where Greg Sargent has some of Limbaugh’s response. Oh, and make sure you’re not drinking hot coffee. Like with this bit:

I’m not in charge of the Republican Party, and I don’t want to be. I would be embarrassed to say that I’m in charge of the Republican Party in a sad-sack state that it’s in. If I were chairman of the Republican Party, given the state that it’s in, I would quit. I might get out the hari-kari knife…

    The LEFT and Emmanual are obsessing with Limbaugh trying desperate to frame him as the spokesperson for the Republicans.
    You KLOWNS screeched when Obama was being defined like his preacher man.

    Things are quickly sorting out.
    Limbaugh is a Conservative.
    Olberman is a LEFTIST KOOK.
    R’s are wise not to give any credence to the spokepeople of the Democratic Party….their ratings are tanking!!

    No elections today.

    Another quote from Rush, same source:

    “…If we don’t want Obama and Reid and Pelosi to fail, then why does the RNC exist, Mr. Steele? Why are you even raising money?….”

    Aside from the blatant repitition of the mantra that Rush would rather see the nation’s economy go down in flames than admit he’s been a charlatan and a fraud all these years, it does raise a good question. If the purpose of the Republican party is simply to try to make Obama’s attempts to revive the economy fail, then why does it exist? Why is it trying to raise money for that purpose?

    The economy is falling off a cliff, and taking the dow with it. Even someone as far gone as you can see that. You can’t even make an intelligent argument. You’ve disintegrated into hostile obscenities, without rational analysis.

    Your party torched this country, Obama is trying desperately to keep it from burning completely to the ground, and it is Obama you are mad at?

    Yep, here we are, some five weeks or so after inaugeration, without any money being paid out yet on Obama’s stimulus plan (current moneys are still being paid out to financial institutions under the Bush/Paulin TARP plan), and Cynical is proclaiming the Obama administration a failure.

    By the same standard, we would have been putting flowers on the grave of the Reagan administration five weeks after his inaugeration.

    Not to mention that Cynical and his ilk were still arguing as late as last summer that any problems in the economy were the fault of the Clinton administration, some 7-1/2 years previously, or even the Clinton administration, almost thirty years before. In fact, some of the wingnuts here were proclaiming the Obama administration a failure in less than 24 hours after his inaugeration.

    I’ve got an idea. Let’s compare the DJIA after eight years of Obama in Jan. 2016, with the closing numbers for the eight years of the Bush administration. The Bush administration lost 21.78% of DJIA value over it’s eight years of control, with a Republican Congress during most of that era. Let’s see how Obama does over the same period of time.

    3. allowing Iran to get enough nuclear material for a bomb – while twiddling our thumbs and injecting bush (and his big fat undiplomatic mouth) into the Iranian election (so the moderates lost).

    The Obama adminstration today released legal memos written by the administration which said that law enforcement authorities, or the military, could detain people and conduct searches within the U.S. without warrants as long as somebody in the administration said it was necessary to combat terrorism.

    Of course, the administration frequently engaged in circuitous reasoning, saying that they constitutional protections don’t apply to terrorists (or anyone who might remotely have information which might somewhere down the line reveal information about terrorists), that the administration has the right to decide who is a terrorist, and that the because the administration has made such a determination, nobody can question it.

    But what I apparantly missed, in the excitement of the upcoming Obama inaugeration, is that the Bush administration “withdrew” those memos shortly before Bush left office.

    While they were once important legal pillars of the U.S. fight against al-Qaida, some of the memos were withdrawn in the final days of the Bush administration.

    Source: Secret Bush memos made public by Obama

    So, we are compelled to ask:

    (a) if these tactics were REALLY essential to the war on terrorism, as the Bush administration has insisted multiple times, why didn’t the Bush administration leave them in place? Did the Bush administration want to deprive the Obama administration of their benefit in order to allow a terrorist attack on the U.S. under Obama’s watch? If these tools were so necessary for national security, then why would they recklessly abandon them just prior to a change in administrations?

    (b) or did everyone in the Bush administration recognize those memos as mere cover for politically-motivated domestic spying, and they wanted to make sure the Obama administration couldn’t engage in the same conduct against them (at least not without finding some other willing flunky to generate a similar opinion – which would be no small feat except in a Republican administration).

    I sure hope the shredders which were hard at work on Jan. 19th didn’t destroy all the evidence of who was spied against. It would be interesting to see that list.

    Puddy – you have no clue about HISTORY. You cite the few facts you have at hand – most are irrelevant and wrong.

    My point – (for those who cannot read) is that North Korea in the 8 years of the Bush (incompetence) Presidency went from agreeing to stopping nuclear proliferation ….to building nuvclear weapons. so the Bush doctrine and the Bush policy was a total and complete failure.

    typical that Puddy is cheering incompetence and trying to change the subject.

    Speaking of revisionist history:

    In a slap at her predecessors, Clinton made it clear she believes that the Bush administration’s decision to walk away from an agreement negotiated during her husband’s administration — the 1994 Agreed Framework — helped create the current crisis over North Korea’s stash of nuclear weapons.

    “The Agreed Framework was torn up on the basis of the concerns about

    the highly-enriched-uranium program,” Clinton said. “There is no debate that, once the Agreed Framework was torn up, the North Koreans began to reprocess plutonium with a vengeance because all bets were off. The result is they now have nuclear weapons, which they did not have before.”

    concerns that turn out to be ….maybe not true. Ooops – Puddy was WRONG AGAIN.

    Maybe you should actually read before you pontificate about the “great successes” of Bush.

    Do you enjoy being wrong?

    I don’t know if you are aware of it, but conservative Republicans across this great nation seem to be a bit worried about the prospects of Iran developing nuclear weapons, and they DON’T seem to be too worried about hordes of nuclear missiles pouring in from Russia. Not only that, but if you knew anything about our missile defense plans you would know that they the system is NOT intended to thwart the kind of mass attack we might expect from the Russians, but only a piddly small attack such as we might expect from Iran or NK, IF either of those countriues could deliver a nuke on a missle, which neither can do.

    However, Russia hates our missile defense in Europe, not because they want to attack, but because they fear that if we defend against their missiles that we would strike them pre-emptively. An offer to scuttle those plans wouled make them feel much more secure.

    All of which argues that using an offer to stop Eastern Eurpoean missie defense in return for cooperation on Iran in likely to be
    (a) Effective

    If Madeline Halfbright verified from 1994-2000 instead of accepting North Korea’s word, wouldn’t have had the head start building the nukes fool.

    For someone who fancies himself well-informed you sure can come off a fool.

    It MIGHT BE true that North Korea engaged in some small-scale uranium gas enrichment between 1994 and 2002. Maybe. However, this article in Foreign Affairs argues that, based on the thin and ambiguous evidence available to the Bush administration at the time (2002), it is entriley possible that the North Koreans never had a bomb-related uranium program, more probable that they made some attempts but didn’t get very far, and very unlikely that they have or had a program anywhere near as advanced as the White House has led us to believe.

    But what is indisputably true is that in 2002 after the Bush administration accused them of cheating and cut off what little remained of our oil shipments to them, that NK pulled out of the NPT, marched over to their UN-sealed reactor, took out the spent fuel rods, and over the next few years made what is estimated to be enough plutonium for perhaps 20 nuclear bombs. Because, you see, it’s way faster and easier to reprocess fuel rods into plutonium (which the 1994 Agreed Framework STOPPED them from doing but Bush STARTED them doing) than it is to enrich uranium using centrifuge cascades (which may or may not be anything they were ever doing).

    “Selig S. Harrison has a curious relationship with reality—that is to say, not much of one. Three years ago, he wrote in Foreign Affairs that the U.S. was to blame for North Korea’s violation of the Agreed Framework he helped to negotiate with Jimmy Carter in 1994. While the tone of the piece was obviously self-serving, it also contained numerous factual errors that were detailed by those involved in the implementation of the Agreed Framework. ”

    “I’m honestly curious what he bases that on, since nothing here is footnoted, he refers to no interviews or source texts, and it is written as an intuitively obvious assertion. It is not. Harrison needs to argue his case, not state it.” – Sumtin Don Joe does here.

    I wonder how long this guy holds out:

    On the one side, the president of the United States: soft-spoken and conciliatory, never angry, always invoking the recession and its victims. This president invokes the language of “responsibility,” and in his own life seems to epitomize that ideal: He is physically honed and disciplined, his worst vice an occasional cigarette. He is at the same time an apparently devoted husband and father. Unsurprisingly, women voters trust and admire him.

    And for the leader of the Republicans? A man who is aggressive and bombastic, cutting and sarcastic, who dismisses the concerned citizens in network news focus groups as “losers.” With his private plane and his cigars, his history of drug dependency and his personal bulk, not to mention his tangled marital history, Rush is a walking stereotype of self-indulgence – exactly the image that Barack Obama most wants to affix to our philosophy and our party. And we’re cooperating! Those images of crowds of CPACers cheering Rush’s every rancorous word – we’ll be seeing them rebroadcast for a long time.

The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

    “I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. “And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you – not financially to help him – we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.””

    It was your Open Secrets link which showed her $401,000 giving fool. The clueless village idiot posts the link then forgets he posted the link. Great job stupid clueless village idiot. So she really gave $441,000.

    She has no job
    , so Hank Paulson gave it fool!

    So if GWB ran the government then, and the stock market has dropped 2800 points since Obama’s coronation then it’s his fault! Thanks fool for finally saying something cogent after all these years.

    The rest of @114 is worthless blatherings from Goldy pet chimp!

    the stock market has dropped 2800 points

    Last I looked it was back up today. Only a fool would attibute that to Obama.

    GDP shrank 6 PERCENT in the last quarter 2008.

    That happened on your Chimpanzee’s watch. Yeah times are shitty TEACH.

    And it’s the fault of you dumbass, shitforbrains right wingers.

    The thing I love about the truth is not how stooopid she is, but how oblivious she is to how stooopid she comes across.

    I realize that we all make typos and occasionally misuse the English language – but the “truth” (such an egotistical name) sure has a way with words. I would say that that way with words was probably honed all the way through the third grade.

    Yeah, obama is worst than you thought he would be.

    Truth – thank you so much for amusing us with your intelligence and insightfulness (sic).

    Poor Puddy – still beating that dead horse?

    Only in your addled brain does Paulson’s wife giving to a conservation organization somehow make Paulson a democrat.

    All those hundreds of thousands Pauslosn gave to the republican national committee, the over 100K he gave to become a Bush pioneer (who knows how much he more he bought his Treasury dept. post for?) and the appointment by Bush to Treasury secretary somehow is negated by contributions to ….a conservation organization?

    Hahahaha – you are a bigger fool than we even believed. You can’t admit you are wrong again – so instead you argue absurdity as truth.

    You are only missing one thing in your argument….logic.

    Puddybud, Hey it's the new year... spews:

    Dr NotRight isn’t right tonight:

    Only in your addled brain does Paulson’s wife giving to a conservation organization somehow make Paulson a democrat.

    That organization came out and supported John Effin Kerry and his causes. Puddy placed their web site and what they said on this blog fool. Sorry your mind is so self-drugged you miss facts.

    And to be a Bush Pioneer you help raise the money (not give it) just like a Hill-Raiser. But unlike Hillary, it was legal monies.

    Go back to your meds Dr NotRight. You have a brain imbalance. Are you leaning too much to the left? We know your are NotRight!

    Puddybud, Hey it's the new year... spews:

    @51
    It’s moot now however if it’s a broken toy why is Russia putting up a ruckus over installing it.

    Being Putin is now dealing with obama he pushed obama and his deal over the cliff. That is hard negotiations that surprised the little kid.
