The G.O.P. is rapidly devolving into the Debbie Downer of America. The current circus that is the Republican Presidential Candidate field has earned a reputation for negative campaigning on everything, including each other. To listen to the likes of Santorum, Gingrich, Romney and Paul one would think that America is on the verge of disappearing from the face of the Earth! They offer no positive solutions to any of the numerous problems they constantly complain about. Some of the problems that worry them don’t even exist. You can’t get more negative than that!
Republican Congressmen are no better. Osama bin Laden is finally brought to justice and they say the threat of terrorism is worse now because al-Qaida is non-centralized. The unemployment rate has been dropping steadily and non-government jobs are growing at a rate faster than the last 3 years, but they say the Country is on the verge of becoming another Greece.
So the question to consider is this: is the G.O.P. simply out of touch with reality or have they become the manifestation of Spiro Agnew’s “nattering nabobs of negativism”?
