Do Republicans have a death wish?

The age old question:  "Are Republicans simply idiots or are they morons?"

A GOP Death Wish?:  Republicans work hard using Social Security to drive their own base into the Obama camp

There is only one critter on this earth more stupid than a Democrat political hack . . . and that is a Republican political hack.

The economy of the world is going into meltdown.  People are scared shit-less.  The only thing folks really care about is jobs, jobs and jobs.

With the economy the #1 issue the Republicans spent a huge amount of the opening debate on frightening retired people with silly and stupid talk about Social Security.  There are thousands of major problems to address without Social Security even being brought up. 
The GOP Death Wish

Older voters are the base of the GOP.  But Republicans appear to have a Death Wish.  They just can't stop themselves from doing political masturbation on live TV in some insane attempt to reduce their own base of voters. 

Mitt Romney chipped away at Texas Gov. Rick Perry's hard-line Social Security rhetoric in Thursday night's Florida debate, zinging Perry in a battleground state with millions of elderly voters.

Front-runner Perry, who has called Social Security a "Ponzi scheme" and unconstitutional but has tried to dial back his language of late, was hammered again by Romney for suggesting Social Security should be administered by individual states.

Perry protested that Romney had distorted his stance and noted that many state employees in Massachusetts under Romney's governorship "are off the Social Security program."

Romney shot back that Perry had indeed pushed for getting the feds out of Social Security in his book.

"There's a Rick Perry out there [who believes] the federal government shouldn't be in the pension business," Romney needled, "so you better find that Rick Perry and get him to stop saying that."

Comrade Obama was laughing all night at this insanity.
