The Republican Party Still Has No Interest in Actual Governance10.26.10
Sure, if you read this blog, you probably have several notions of why I dislike the current Republican Party.
“The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”
Seriously? That’s the single most important thing the country needs right now? That’s the single most important thing on the minds of Americans right now?
What a total joke. People can complain about the policy choices of the Democrats in power, but at least they’re focused on actually fixing things, on making our country better. You might not agree with the health care law (too big, too socialist?) but it’s goal is to help Americans without insurance obtain health care without risky bankruptcy.
What do the Republicans want to do? They want to get rid of Obama.
That’s it! 9.6 percent unemployment? Not nearly as important. The war in Afghanistan? Wasn’t a big deal when we invaded Iraq and still isn’t a big deal now. Climate change? God has that figured out already for us. Immigration? A wall or a fence or just kick em out I guess… we’ll worry about it later.
Just know that if you vote Republican in the Senate race next week, the possible-future Senate majority leader has already declared what the number one priority is. And if you’re one of those few who – despite rational thought and factual evidence to the contrary – think that Obama is a socialist, Muslim who was born in Kenya and wants to usher in Sharia law and instill a New World Order with the Amero as the global currency… well, I suppose you should be stoked to hear that your represenatives in Washington are listening to you after all.
As for the rest of us…
