7 - A Republican politician will claim (as this one did) that he can't afford a tax hike because he only makes $200,000/year (or more) now. I can't find the reference now, but this last spring a state GOP representative had made the same kind of claim, but his income was "only" about $174,000. Poor, poor Republicans!
8 - A GOP senator or representative will say that we should take military action against a nation with which we're not at war; just as GOP Senator Lindsey Graham just did against nuclear-armed Pakistan.
9 - And if another crisis involving the military (as such are wont to do) presents itself, every single member of the GOP in Congress will either claim that Obama didn't take strong enough action, or will claim that Obama was recklessly trying to get us into another war. Of course, this would be nothing different in the least from what the GOP said about Obama's efforts to support the Libyan rebels. And in Obama's defense, mission accomplished in Libya, with zero combat troops on the ground, except for 2 (two) who recently accompanied a State Department representative to begin relations with the victorious rebels.
10 - The GOP finally seems to be losing ground on the idiotic issue of the Obama birth certificate. On September 20th, a Winthrop poll found that:
Almost 30 percent of self-identified S.C. Republicans and Republican-leaning voters say Obama is a Muslim, and 36 percent say the president “probably” or “definitely” was born in another country.
But I'll go out on a limb here and predict that in the two to three months before the election we'll actually see the percentage of birth certificate deniers grow, rather than diminish, as common sense would usually dictate. Maybe the percentage will grow sooner; only time will tell.
