Bill Frist helps Huffington Post smear half the Republicans in Tennessee

The GOP has a problem with the "Birthers", but only in that they're too incompetent or corrupt to figure out how to turn the issue to their advantage or at least minimize its impact. Instead, establishment Republicans and their minor league helpers keep doing the opposite: helping Obama, the Democrats, and the mainstream media at the same time as they hurt their base.

The latest example of that was offered by former senator Bill Frist. Per Sam Stein of the Huffington Post (huffingtonpost.com/2009/10/16/frist-addresses-tennessee_n_323639.html):

Speaking at a conference in Washington D.C., the Huffington Post asked the former Senator about a recent survey which showed 47 percent of Tennessee Republicans and 34 percent of the entire state thought Obama was constitutionally ineligible to hold office.

Frist replied that there was a need to have "good people [in Washington] get facts out, explain to people, communicate with people, get rid of... a certain arrogance, and listen to real people on the ground."

"When a patient comes in I don't care where they are from or how much money they have. I spend the time and communicate," Frist, a doctor, concluded. "I listen to them and get a more educated populace out there."

After the event concluded, he told the Huffington Post that there was an onus on elected Republican leaders in Washington to reach out and calm some of the more extreme elements of the party.

The HuffPost's goal was to portray the GOP base as insane extremists, and Frist helped them with their goal to a certain extent. There are a lot of things he could have done instead but apparently did not; see the first link in this post.

The fact is most of our so called presidents have been working to take us down a road to hell and its working way to well. the political ideals of both paties is one and the people have no base line to go any where but to hell with millions and millions of the third world now here and 100 million coming down the road the only thing any real American can do is hope for the best life. but life in the coming future will be real crazy from the stand point of anyone who has lived under laws and that person will fine in real hard to live under the lawless ideals of places like mexico. that is my point all of the third world want to be countries like the USA Will become a murder state just like all third world monkey states. And easy game for nation like Red China to control and the so called former USSR, OH YES THE Reds win.
