The Republican Leadership’s Failure To Lead
Told you so!!!
I said it. The current leadership talks tough about the issues they have mistakenly wedded themselves to. By pandering to the lowest, meanest, most ugly fringe in our country, they have marginalized themselves to the precipice of oblivion. They disrespected the American attention span and memory. They lied to all real Republicans by running on job creation in 2010. Using the anxiety most Americans feel about jobs they won huge gains in Congress and called it a mandate to pursue the fringe agenda of social issues.
They counted on the Democrats angering the Progressive base to win those seats. An excellent calculation on their part. In their arrogance, they took that win to be an endorsement of fringe agendas. If you campaign on jobs and pursue union busting, denial of abortions and women’s health services, cutting of education, cutting the Social Security benefits of our seniors, Medicare for our seniors, Medicaid for our poor, restriction of access to voting, you show yourselves to be what everyone already thought of you. You are out of touch and mean spirited snakes whose only purpose is political power and control so that you may serve your big monied donors. You have shown through your actions that you care nothing about the “The American People” you love to quote in front of every microphone.
You have had an axe to grind ever since the Nixon impeachment and have proven that you have no respect at all for the office of the presidency. You have made it your mission to attempt to destroy every Democrat who wins election to the White House. Instead of governing and statesmanship we get gang warfare. We get a bunch of tough talking bullies who would destroy how our president is viewed by running easily manipulated figureheads for the office and when a Democrat wins, make sure that any attempt to govern is met with a resounding NO. You care nothing for our country or it’s people. We are merely a means to your end of maintaining the economic chasm that exists between the haves and have nots.
You will not dare support anything that could help the country or it’s people because if you did and work was actually done, you may need to resort to actually defending what it is you are really about. You have become the party of the obscenely rich and the scourge of the middle class.
HEY MORONS!! IT WAS A ROBUST MIDDLE CLASS THAT MADE THIS COUNTRY THE ENVY OF THE WORLD!!
Has America diminished since the Nixon impeachment? You bet it has. You made sure of that. You elect these yes men to the office when you win the White House and leave a steaming pile to clean up for any Democrat who would dare take the Oval Office away from you due to your own incompetence.
Look at what you are giving this country as an alternative to Obama. Your rank and file party members can’t even get behind any of them with any vigor. The inadequacies of what you have fielded for candidacy are obvious to most thinking Americans so I will not waste time going in on them. I think Colbert had it right when he did his bit on the generic candidate.
If you have so little respect for the people of this country that the best you can do is the guy above, you deserve the oblivion you are careening toward. We need statesmen not petulant children to help pull this country out of the morass. It is not President Obama who has failed, IT IS YOU!!
PS. While you are stalling and putting the full faith and credit of the United States in jeopardy in the name of what Joe Scarborough calls “simple math”. Consider this simple math. The people you are targeting with all of your over reach outnumber the people you answer to by a huge margin and you WILL hear from us in 2012.
