The grand old party sold named when it really did evoke America has so narrowed its base that it has become a political cult.
The new republic insists that quote did GOP's Hezbollah wing is now fully in control.
And even the New York Times so -- conservative columnist David Brooks says quote if responsible Republicans don't take control.
Independents will conclude that Republican fanaticism cause this default they will conclude that Republicans are not fit to govern and they will be right.

You say -- couple other Democrats say it it goes and passing it doesn't get noticed.
And it keeps happening.
If a conservative says it.
They get fired their advertisers get targeted because liberals -- can say anything but free speech doesn't exist for conservatives in the media in the -- That's the problem aide David Brooks said anything get fired he's -- rhino now by the way -- David Harris has never been a conservative.
I'll look on what to say what I really feel about this debate on the debt limit.
I think Republicans are being irresponsible now I think using analogies like.
Hezbollah or terrorist or suicide bombers are hit -- or any thing like that.
That that that doesn't do anybody any good debut was irresponsible.
I'll tell you -- irresponsible bankrupting.
The country you know it's irresponsible.
That's what the Republicans are gonna -- -- for people paying 50% of their wages and income.
And they get beaten over the head -- selfish and greedy half the country doesn't pay taxes and Doug.
One in seven Americans thanks to the poverty programs of Obama and Democrats need food stamps to survive.
To me is far worse.
Absolutely you know what really demonstrates to me how to tax the left is from the reality Americas that Richard -- quote.
Talking about -- -- bases -- let's go back to 2006.
When god and 2008.
When Democrats were saying that we -- white southern male party -- we started with Scott brown and Chris Christie.
Now we've gotten Nikki Haley we've got Tim Scott we've got Allen -- stuff Susanna Martinez is the -- -- growing at -- Democrats think that's shrinking that's fantastic frost and we'll just keep on trucking.
You know what I gotta tell -- from from purely a political standpoint.
You know if the president and his party -- class warfare is gonna get them over the finish line.
While economic you know while Obama accumulates five trillion in debt wallow unemployment is at nine point 2%.
While all the 17% of the population is not working because his policies have failed.
If you think that's gonna work and I don't think you do Steve.
Then you're gonna see the destruction of your party at least in the short term.
Why -- they -- literally trying create jobs in this country and unleash the entrepreneurial spirit.
Clay -- let's be honest about what the Republicans in congress are walking away from here the Democrats Barack Obama is willing to do about 3.2 trillion dollars in cuts Phillies wants to have -- yes yes -- -- 10800.
Of all the deficit reduction.
That he's looking for approximately from all reports is from taxes and you know what else is silly about this whole according to a report which is where I know let me Moody's and S and -- downgrade our -- they're willing to let the stock market losing trillion dollars are willing to let home mortgages go -- the variable rate mortgages is this all I'm all for a tax cut cut cut.
That's going to expire the end of next year any -- 850%.
Of Americans pay no federal income tax half.
One that's of -- the -- it pass the amendment designed it -- -- -- when I when I didn't have a republic on the second to.

I was glad rich people hired me rich people -- out to dinner.
If rich people don't buy yachts member of the yacht tax the rich people don't buy planes all the demonization of private planes.
If rich people don't go on expensive vacations and guess who's going to suffer.
All the people who Democrats seem take care the most about they're killing -- opportunity for people to succeed.
You know absolutely Shaun like -- good North Carolina boy like I am my first job was -- a barbecue restaurant called mr.
And I'll never forget getting that first paycheck and seeing how much of my money that's taken away from me before you even have the chance to get it.
But I think god that I -- people who hired me and employed may and we need more people to do that to drive our economy.
And that's what Marco Rubio was just talking about and let's compare it to divisive rhetoric.
That we saw from another -- a politician.
Alan Grayson overheated rhetoric is like it overheated radiator you're just blowing -- you don't accomplish anything I don't think.
