    b. Top government official, former, and present

    c. Karl Rove, as the enforcer

    d. Rush as the Over steering, making sure all the Republicans are remind of their orders and not to stray

    REPUBLICANS DO AS THEY’RE TOLD BY THE ROUND TABLE, THEY KNOW THOSE WHO SIT AT THE ROUND TABLE HOLD THEIR CAREER IN THEIR HANDS, AND MAYBE THEIR LIFE

    NEO-CON MEDIA ARE:

    Far right (RACIST) neo-con syndicated columnists that support torture, a regular guess hosted on Hannity; Fox and friends neo-con Nazis news. Their job is to insure the Republicans base supporters never question the Republicans, by providing them with their daily dose of lies, fear, threats over and over again

    You can find at least 125 stories in the Wall Street Journal all staring President Obama, and all fill with lies and no evidence that they base their article on

    REPUBLICANS BASE SUPPORTERS:

    Grand Old Party is the GOP and the Opposite would be the A$$ party, since the GOP is represented by the Elephant and the A$$ party is represented by the JackA$$.

    The Grand Old Party. It was called that in the 1860s. It never really meant anything, in fact the Republican party was only a few years old when they began using that name for it. Today, GOP is just used because it's less syllables and less keystrokes than 'The Republican Party'.

    There is no equivalent nickname for the Democratic Party.
