With 9% Approval House GOP Presents Blank Paper As 2014 Agenda

Stumbling around pointing fingers while gleefully mocking Obama for trying to help save millions of Americans’ lives might feel great, but it’s not doing much for Congress’ 9% approval ratings.

 

So House Republicans have yet another Hail Mary idea to save themselves with the voters they’ve been busy alienating for years. A new fiscal agenda! One that allegedly will address the concerns of people.

 

Only problem? It’s blank.

Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was not impressed. “‏The House GOP’s 2014 blank agenda proves they are officially out of ideas,” she tweeted, linking to a Politico article.

 

When Eric Cantor (R-VA) passed out GOP Agenda 2014, it was blank according to Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan at Politico.

Last Thursday, a group of House Republicans filed into Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s Capitol office suite and received a blank piece of paper labeled “Agenda 2014.”

This blank agenda is another attempt at rebranding. Republicans are now going to focus on the problems they are allegedly solving with their policies, instead of the importance of the policy itself. This polls better, you see, they explained to Politico, sounding a bit too much like a stalker trying to find just the right way to hit on his victim. This is, after all, rebrand number 3 (?) in a year’s time, and they have all failed.

 

It might be the policies.

 

Still licking their chops over the people who have to change insurance plans while ignoring the 47 million who do not have any insurance at all and will finally get it under ObamaCare, Republicans see openings in energy costs and job training programs, among other issues. They think they can sell drilling here and now by talking about energy costs to the average American.

 

And that’s all fine, except that under Obama we’re setting record growth in oil rigs and it hasn’t done much to the price of gas for reasons that liberals have understood and tried to explain to Drill Baby Drill bumper sticker energy “experts” like Sarah Palin to no avail.

 

No matter — the facts seldom get in the way of the Republican Party’s jingles. But as always with the GOP, Politico reported, “Details, at this point, are scant…”

 

Yes. Because it is hard to rebrand already rejected policies especially when the GOP base is deadset on the very social issues the Republicans have been pushing as get out the vote tactics for years, so there isn’t a lot of room for thinking outside of the box.

 

This is the reality facing the GOP post shutdown – and the shutdown was only the cherry on top of years of 47% contempt for average Americans. But that is why this news isn’t making headlines. It’s vast and it impacts our country daily – so of course, the media is loath to discuss it.

 

The Democrats are flawed and imperfect and annoyingly refusing to embrace the bold liberalism that actually appeals to people even in the south (see Kentucky), but at least their platform is aimed at using government money and resources to help people; the GOP uses government money to socialize corporate losses and subsidize corporate risks while letting the people starve.

 

It’s hard to sell those “ideas” to very people paying for the funding. It requires a lot of fear-mongering and distraction with ginned up social issues.

 

Can the GOP save themselves from the shutdown, or better yet, can the media single-handedly rescue the GOP from their own reckless incompetence by eagerly passing off GOP talking points as news?

They’re trying. In the meantime, here’s a deep, totally rebranding blank page for you to ponder as you consider which party has your best interests at heart.

 

Republicans are trying, but a blank agenda is just bad optics for a party that’s been branded as the party of No, the party of No Ideas, and the party of obstruction.

 

They should revert back to their big font tricks and waving pamphlets with the word “jobs” printed in desperate repetition – blank agendas are a bit too close to the truth, though I applaud them for leaving the corporate logos off.

With 9% Approval House GOP Presents Blank Paper As 2014 Agenda

 

The House has passed many, many good bills, but Reid won't even allow votes on them, moonbat.

 

Once we take the Senate and the White House, they'll pass them and the new Repub president will sign them. :)

 

Obama is destroying not only himself, but his party.

Uninsured started at 30 Million. Up to 47 million? You must be counting the people that lost their plans because of unaffordable care act. Immigration same thing. Started with 12 million. Last time i heard a dem it was 30 million. A lot of newly accounted people. It's like Teddy K. was. He only had a couple. Turns out he drank a fifth. Speaking of numbers remember when Kerry had a higher GPA than Bush. WASHINGTON (USATODAY.com) — While the general impression during the 2004 presidential campaign was that Democrat John Kerry was the intellectual superior to President Bush, it turns out that their grades while undergraduate students at Yale were remarkably similar.

In fact, Bush's were a tad higher. His four-year average was 77; Kerry's 76. Both were C students. Kerry graduated from Yale in 1966; Bush in 1968. I Don't remember seeing Oblame'o GPA but based on his performance as president it probably wasn't that high. Affirmative action?

According to a variety polls, including Fox, congressional Democrats have between 29-31% approval ratings.

Which is 3X better than 9% for the suck it tea bags.

 

It is as if you think you can revive the YUGO with commercials showing a pretty girl driving one across the Golden Gate Bridge. Hell...Yugos were lucky to last as long as the original TIRES. The GOP needs GOOD policy for the WHOLE of America, INTEGRITY...maybe some common sense. They are HYSTERICALLY opposed to all that. Thus...a big conflict.

 

If your master plan is to be the SAME extreme,disfunctional goofs and puppets...but....to LIE about all that....it's not a winner. The Goppers...can't even do that with consistancy since they have to do primaries where the CRAZY ASS MORON...wins. Then...they need that nutjob to get SANE...smart...for the general election. Even Mitt...a master of Two-Faced...could not pull off that trick.

That's a bad agenda teach. Current polling shows the majority of Americans don't believe the wealthy and corporations are taxed enough, and they are for expanding Medicare, and protecting the social safety net. You have some voters locked away in a warehouse someplace to make that agenda happen? I can see why Cantor doesn't want to talk about it. A sure loser of an agenda to campaign on ahead of the midterms.

Hate Slowbamascare. You live by the poll, you can die by the poll, too.

 

There's only one poll that matters and that takes place every two years.

 

don't believe the wealthy and corporations are taxed enough,

You can also poll these same morons on what the tax rate on corporations should be and the ones that dare answer usually give an answer below what the current rate is.

 

So, skewboy, what should the rate be?

 

And you don't just get to say "more." Which you would say, always.
