Turns out the the only thing they hate more than being called racist is our President.

“In their mind, Republicans have been too quick to give in to Obama,” says McInturff, the GOP pollster, about the views of self-identified Republicans in the poll. “For the average Republican House member, he or she is more likely to be concerned about a primary than general election.”
And there’s the problem….the problem is obvious to everyone who is not the problem, but those who are the problem are mostly worried about losing their jobs and try to keep their jobs by not fixing problems with the President. Instead they loudly shout that he’s the reason they can’t solve problems, which OMG!!, the GOP base loves to hear.
