Republicans Piss Everybody Off

Trump pissed off Latinos by promising to deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants. But he left open the possibility that those people could apply for a visa to return legally. This week, Ted Cruz decided to get even tougher, and said that not only will he deport all of them, but he will deny them the possibility of coming back legally.

Back in 2012 the Republicans did some soul searching to figure out why they lost the presidential race. Their conclusion was that in order to have any chance of winning, they had to get at least 40% of the Latino vote (Romney got 27%). But with the top two GOP presidential candidates pissing all over Latinos, it seems more likely that they will get less of their vote, not more.

But it gets worse. Also this week, the Republicans voted to repeal Obamacare (making it their 60th attempt to do that). So they are going to piss off millions of people who would lose their health insurance if Obama doesn’t veto the bill. Of course he will. Republicans claim that forcing Obama to veto this bill will cost him politically. But do they really believe that there is anyone who doesn’t know where Obama stands on the ACA? Seriously?

And if that weren’t enough, the same bill also defunds Planned Parenthood, which means that the GOP isn’t afraid to piss off women.

Does anyone really believe that the GOP has any chance of regaining the presidency?

UPDATE: Not only that, but Trump just picked a fight with one person you really don’t want to piss off.

    Since Trump remembers nothing he says or did, my guess is that he has the same disease that Reagan had when president. Trump would have to be led by his handlers as Reagan was.

    Trump’s modus operandi all along is to double down on whatever got some applause last time out and screw the facade of decorum (ie. political correctness), and so far it’s working. So far. Cruz is the spittin’ image, inside and out, of Joe McCarthy. What’s funny is that he doesn’t even know it.

    Some on either side and more informed than I have opined that should either be the Republican nominee it’s the end of the party as we have come to know it. One can only hope, though it’s a mystery to me and sometimes shudder at what might take its place.

    In Congress, it’s business as usual in 2016 and there’s still one thing we can say about them that is as true now as ever –
    “Never confuse activity with achievement.” – John Wooden

    And let me just say this about Samuel L. Jackson – he was great in Pulp Fiction and pretty good in The Hateful Eight too. But I don’t need to see him in a Star Wars movie. Or anymore of those damn Capital One commercials!

    That’s my story and I’m stickin’ with it!

    By, “cost him politically,” does the GOP mean Obama’s veto of legislation repealing Obamacare will cost him being elected to another term? Or that Congress will begin not cooperating with him on anything?
