Steve Schmidt, McCain Campaign Manager: Religion Could Kill The GOP

Mr. Schmidt made these comments in a speech to the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay group trying to affect the Republican party from within. (Like Newt, he has a gay sister.) In other words, the L.Cs is a group that is heavily into denial! It remains to be seen if the Repubs can ever divorce themselves from their ties with religion or their anti-gay bias but so far, either option seems far from the GOP's agenda.

Right now, their activity du jour has to do with Tea Parties and "teabagging" (which I'm sure they are expert at!) and I'm sure they are trying to protect the "poor" (themselves) from high taxes! They've had a free ride for 8 years and now they object. More "patriotism?

I'm also not sure why the Obamas want to pardon all those employees at Gitmo who were just "following orders" in the really "benign" (no torture!) interrogation of terror suspects. In doing this, Barack is putting himself in the same category as these other creeps. And, I might add, I don't understand the consistent appointments oƒ those who are supposed to get us out of the present "recession" with those who got us into it. (Geithner, Summers, Allison.) So far, they've only succeeded in throwing away more taxpayer dollars.

Though I don't regret voting for Obama (would McCain have been any better?), I have been rather disappointed in many of his subsequent actions.
