John Boehner is such a fragile soul. When he’s not sobbing on the House floor, he’s crying about what a mess the GOP is.
Polls show the public holds congressional Republicans in low esteem. Boehner’s effort to craft a new agenda for Republicans remains under wraps. And in the minority leader’s own words, their fundraising “sucks.”
“Now the money sucks for two reasons,” Boehner said in a Politico interview. “People are mad at the president; they are mad at the party. And then [there is] this whole immigration fight. People just turned off the spigot.”
Gosh, why would that be?
Sure the GOP has botched two wars, bankrupted the country, opened up a festering schism between their corporate overlords and their keep-the-brown-people-out base, alienated minorities, demonized gays, let a major US city drown, screwed the middle class, done zilch about climate change, had a bunch of their guys get thrown in jail — all while blindly supporting an historically unpopular idiot manchild of a President. But they were right on top of that Terri Schiavo thing!
What to do? This calls for a PR makeover!
Boehner has undertaken a study, consulting corporate image experts, to “re-brand” the party. But so far, no big ideas have emerged.
Sorry, John. The Great Leader has already re-branded the party "The Party That Loses Wars and Pretty Much Fucks Everything Up" and it’s going to take a generation to undo the damage.
