Republicans Should Know (by now!) How to Vote - Simple Majority Can End This Economic Misery

Louisiana Governor Jindal said the Republicans must stop being the stupid party, but who ever thought his political party would forget how to count? Republicans behaved stupidly by driving a US government shutdown over the Obamacare health care reform law, without offering any alternative. 

Now, the same stupid Republicans, who believed their shutdown would change minds about Obamacare, don't seem to understand how to undo the damage they've caused.

Republicans must surely know how to vote. If House Speaker John Boehner called for a clean resolution vote to repeal the stupid budget sequester (a budget stifling gimmick Congress imposed on itself for no reason whatsoever), and then to lift the government shutdown topped off by a lifting of the US debt ceiling. Nothing, absolutely nothing could be easier. 

Apparently, Republicans need some help with this "count" thing. They need to understand how democracy depends on people who can count. A person or issue with the most votes wins over those that don't receive enough votes. Arriving at the "majority" decision requires votes to be counted. Many Republicans may need help from Sesame Street's "The Count", to learn how this counting system works.

Governor Jindal said: “We’ve (ie GOP) got to stop being the stupid party. It’s time for a new Republican Party that talks like adults,” he said. “We had a number of Republicans damage the brand this year with offensive and bizarre comments. I’m here to say, we’ve had enough of that.”

Unfortunately, Republicans, obviously, haven't had "enough" of being stupid, They just keep getting even more stupid.  

NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll adds to Republican shutdown woes; By Cathleen Decker  Los Angeles Times October 11, 20134:00 a.m.

For Republicans, the last 10 days have felt like falling down a darkened elevator shaft: You want to hit bottom, but wonder about the odds of survival.

In what has become an almost daily occurrence, Thursday night brought another poll showing the damage the party has suffered as a result of the government shutdown. A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that the party’s popularity had dropped and Americans were far more likely to blame them for the goings-on in Washington than their Democratic opponents.

Listen up, you number challenged Republicans! If House Speaker Boehner would just count, like "one, two, three..." and so on, he would find out if there are enough votes, in a simple majority, to fix America's economic crises. Please try.
