|Another fat old Southern Republican saying something that riles up the junk food media and make it even harder for Republicans to win a normally swing state. Virginia is tending Blue.|
The good folks over at The Raw Story report that a Virginia Republican chairman is thinking that President Barack Obama is nearing death, it's a possibility that the racist right would finally see closure to a man they despised so diligently.
Still angry over the major defeat of Ken Cuccinelli, Republicans are bitching about how Obama's thugs managed to get those "low information voters" to turn out for Terry McAuliffe. Now that McAuliffe will be the next governor, Republicans are scrambling for victory in the U.S. Senate elections.
Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) is likely going to win this if the public doesn't turn against him. But it doesn't stop Republicans from thinking that it may be possible for Cuccinelli to be a contender for the nomination.
So I guess this jackass cracked a joke. This fat lard butt Republican chairman of Virginia says that President Barack Obama was “so close to death” that Terry McAuliffe needed to buy a life insurance policy.
Democratic lawmakers want this bonehead to resign.
Over the weekend, Pat Mullins and about 450 members of the Republican Party of Virginia (RPV) met for the annual “Advance,” a retreat at a former Confederate War hospital that is now a popular resort in Hot Springs.
Mullins blamed the media for gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli’s loss, saying that the so-called “war on women” was covered more than the president’s health care reform law.
“This year, our message couldn’t break through and we paid a price,” he lamented. “This is false narrative by false prophets… Republicans do not win when we are mini-Democrats or Democrat Lite.”
In fact, Mullins seemed more sure than ever that the health care law was going to give Republicans the upper hand in dealing with the state’s new Democratic governor.
The fool added, “Saying that President Obama is close to death is unacceptable in our political discourse, and the chairman really should be ashamed of himself. He’s decried this type of rhetoric before… and yet somehow it keeps appearing in his speeches, in his public comments.”
“To my mind, this is yet another example of just how unwilling to change and how unbridled in their opposition to President Obama the Republicans are,” he added. “Instead of making insulting, incendiary comments about the President, intended to fire up the same Tea Party base that drove Virginia Republicans to statewide losses in 2013, Chairman Mullins would be better suited to look in the mirror and examine how out of touch Virginia Republicans have become with people across the Commonwealth. But that would require the GOP to acknowledge its past mistakes and to learn from them, and it’s clear they have no interest in doing that.”
Locke agreed that the Virginia Republican Party strategy “going forward will be to continue kowtowing to the tea party.”
“That’s disappointing, especially coming off an election in which Virginia Democrats swept all three statewide offices for the first time in nearly 25 years,” Locke said. “You’d think Republicans would take this as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and begin moderating their approach, but instead it’s the same old Virginia GOP – get them fired up by Ken Cuccinelli, EW Jackson, and Pat Mullins.”
So how that diversity tour Reince Priebus?
Is your Republican Party still searching for that rainbow?
