Which is it? You can't have it both ways.

I watch Morning Joe.

Why? Well Mika, and Joe is good to hear the "other" side of things when he isn't all rant-y.  And they ALLOW people to have an opinion most days without screaming over each other.  The days Joe gets preach-y and rant-y I change the channel. And they are cuter to look at than most other news peeps.


See?  I mean Willie Geist?  Come on ladies???

My morning treadmill jaunt and Morning Joe.  Harmless.

Today I was reading the scroll, as I do during commercials or when Bill Karins is reading the weather, and the scroll went IN ORDER - The Republican Party does not want to be seen as the party of "stuffy old men", Boehner can NEVER IMAGINE approving of gay marriage, and the GOP is spending $10M to attract minorities.  I shortened it up, but that was what scrolled in succession.   

GOP - you cannot have it both ways.

You cannot have a leader who is a "stuffy old guy" AND improve your image, AND attract minorities because you throw money at the "problem".  

How about making policies that people can actually stand behind? 

I get that you want to be seen as fiscally conservative, but does that mean we move back to the stone ages and ban abortion, put women back in the kitchen, and say "she was asking for it" and stone women who are raped?  

Choices need to be made.  By all of us. 

And maybe the first one is that Boehner doesn't speak for the GOP?

I keep hoping that maybe the parties can learn to work together. I think they can BOTH stand to learn things from each other and they BOTH can bring good things to the table.

It frustrates me to see so much separation because I know that's part of what is wrong with our government and country. I mean hell, during the presidential election there was so much anger and finger pointing. And shouldn't we all be wanting to make this country BETTER?

I'm sure this is the happy happy way to think but I feel like it could do a lot of good.

I emailed Krysten, but want it out here in black and tan that I agree. Everyone is to blame.
