Holy crap! Did I somehow step through “the Looking Glass”? Is the GOP trying to re-define itself ahead of the 2016 election?
First we have news that there is a push back on the opposition to immigration reform….then the ladies pull their support for an anti-abortion bill in essence killing the bill (for now)……and then I got word that there was another vote that shocked me…….
I got this piece of news from Ace news group for whom I write op-eds from time to time……..
#AceWorldNews – WASHINGTON:Jan.22: Sometimes snippets of news just have to be published and this snippet is just one of those and is just as The Hill reported.
The Senate on Wednesday voted that “climate change is real and is not a hoax” as Democrats used the Keystone XL pipeline debate to force votes on the politically charged issue ahead of the 2016 elections.
The Senate on Wednesday voted 98-1 in favor of a an amendment stating that “climate change is real and is not a hoax.”
The provision offered by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) to put Republicans on record about climate change ahead of the 2016 election passed with near unanimous support, with only Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), the chairman of the campaign committee for Senate Republicans, voting no.
First, Wicker is my Senator and I would expect nothing different from this big business crony……
Okay, what the Hell is going on with the GOP?
I thought is that they are playing a game to make them look like a real party and not some group of bumbling morons……all this is to look good to the groups that they have lost in the past….women, environmentalists, immigrants……it is all a game, in my mind, a well thought out game…..but a game none the less.
The GOP is moving at record speed in this redefining operation…..but will it last?
Even the d/bags in the Tea Party seem to be playing along with this dice roll……it is all about 2016……nothing to do with the reality of things….just to win an election and have TOTAL power…..this may not last long…..until the gamers get tired of playing.
So whatcha think? Is A Game Afoot?
