Useless Republicans

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.

You.Have.Got.To.Be.Kidding.  Un.Believable!

I think the GOP is about finished, at least for the foreseeable future.
Mitt Romney said it best in the 2012 election,
"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. And I mean, the president starts off with 48, 49, 48—he starts off with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn't connect. And he'll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean that's what they sell every four years. And so my job is not to worry about those people—I'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

Agree. We have gone past the entitlement tipping point with our Communist-in-Chief and the fellow traveler tools in BOTH parties. We won't see a constitutional republic again on this side of a horrendous cataclysmic event.
