• GOP stand for "Grand Old Party". The Republican Party (often referred to as the GOP, for "Grand Old Party") is one of the two major political organizations in the United States' two party system; its great rival is the Democratic Party. In addition to controlling the White House since 2001, the Republican Party has held majorities in the United States Senate and United States House of Representatives almost continuously since 1995. Republicans currently hold 28 governorships and have majorities in 20 state legislatures. Normally the sitting president is the leader of his party, controlling the national committee and taking the roles of chief spokesman and chief fundraiser. President Bush selected Ken Mehlman as the chairman of the Republican National Committee in January 2005. I found so much info at this site I Hope I Helped!
  • GOP stands for Get Out Pronto(fast). The US is trying to get some people out Afghanistan. And trying to get some people out of Iraq. Tried to get the Lebannonese out of Lebannon- Israel doing the dirty work. Maybe the US will tell the Iranians GOP next. Maybe we can tell the war-making Republicans to GOP the next elections, unless Bush can fix those elections like he did in Iraq.
  • It never ceases to amaze me, the ignorance some people spew foth as fact.
  • 1) "The term "Grand Old Party" is a traditional nickname for the Republican Party, and the initialism "G.O.P." (or "GOP") is a commonly used designation. According to the Republican Party, the term "gallant old party" was used in 1875. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the first known reference to the Republican Party as the "grand old party" came in 1876. The first use of the abbreviation GOP is dated 1884. Some media have stopped using the term GOP because they think it's confusing. More facetiously, the abbreviation is sometimes held to stand for "God's own party", in reference to the party's modern-day constituency of conservative evangelical Christians. In 2008, the new Washington state top two primary had Republican candidates competing against GOP candidates in the same races." Source and further information: 2) "For a long time Republicans have been known as the "G.O.P." And party faithfuls thought it meant the "Grand Old Party." But apparently the original meaning (in 1875) was "gallant old party." And when automobiles were invented it also came to mean, "get out and push." That's still a pretty good slogan for Republicans who depend every campaign year on the hard work of hundreds of thousands of volunteers to get out and vote and push people to support the causes of the Republican Party."
