Republicans in Congress, especially the so-called ‘moderates’ proved themselves to be as useless as, excuse the expression, “tits on a hog.”
The Cruz’s of the world didn’t fare much better, refusing to “delay” the Senate vote. So much for “conviction.” His excuse was it was a lost cause. Hmmm.
What a waste of time and effort – caving even before the White House was fully tested and put on the spot. I have NO idea why the Republicans were blamed for the shutdown and being called “obstructionist” when it was clearly the President and liberals in Congress who refused reasonable offers. The Democrats brinksmanship paid off. Republican lack of conviction and infighting did not.
The Republican promises to kill Obamacare died this week. They failed to follow through. They are exceedingly untrustworthy. They decided their cause was a waste of time, their efforts were worthless, and their spine resembled jelly.
The Republicans clearly deserve greater condemnation for prematurely throwing in the towel than if they stuck to their alleged convictions.
And at the final meeting of the House during this debacle, the delusional House members gave Boehner a standing ovation in celebration of their collective, useless, and shameful efforts. “I think he has strengthened his position in leadership,” Representative John Fleming says about Boehner.
