What I don't understand, is if the Republicans hope to regain the White House, why would they sabotage the appearance of unity and then inherit the tarnished label of former leader of the free world.
You don't quite get it do you, glitter? The right-wing Repukes wish to NULLIFY
Obama's presidency. One way to do this is to try and make him fail on the international stage by stubbornly obstructing him at every term and trying to interfere with the sensitive talks between Iran, the US and our European allies, including Russia. The president of the US possess executive privileges which belong to the president of the US exclusively. The Repukes are claiming the President has to discuss this
privilege with them before employing said powers. Whenever Obama chooses
to use them, the right-wingers contend he's acting like a Monarch or emperor. The Repukes have refused to put a jobs' bill on the table for infrastructure repairs, or any other kind of jobs bill that would help reduce unemployment among the American people; they are willing to hurt the American citizen just to spite this president. I have encountered picayune minds before but never so many collectively; I find the Republicans actions so objectionable and offensive
that one is reminded of highly venomous deadly reptiles at an early stage of development - handle them at your own peril. The Tea Party which has consumed the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, and seemingly the majority leader of the senate, Mitch McConnell, is so unspeakably evil that I cannot think of anything humane to say about that group except it now seem to have conquered the entire Establishment Republican Party and this is destructive to our government. Remember last year when these "whacko-birds" shut down the government because Obama refused to rescind the law of the land, the ACA?
The 47 repukes who signed the letter committed a treasonous act!
These elected representatives are behaving like war lords. I'm deeply offended that the people who are sitting in Congress think it's ok to make up the rules on the fly.
They are acting like a bunch of venomous as*Holes, with spitefulness coursing through their veins. Today's GOP represent the dark side of humanity. They come across as the kind of people who lynched black men in the 50s for fun on a Saturday afternoon picnic.
Take some responsibility and get off your asses and actually vote. We need to put a stop to these opportunists playing to the lowest common denominator.
I certainly could not agree more. One day, people will begin to comprehend how extremely important mid-term elections are and how desperately each
vote is needed if there is to be a transformation toward decent governmental governing. I don't want to wait until the Latinos, the fastest growing minority demographic take over within a couple of decades; I would like to see these fu*kers taken out beginning in November 2015.
Maybe my response was not as clear as I hoped it would be, I do understand they want to nullify Obama, but while they do that they also diminish the office of POTUS. What happens after the next election, we really don't know who will get the vote, but the pattern has been set. You are in Congress, you don't like the president, well tough cheese America, I'm no longer going to represent the constituents because I have have partisan majority issues on my mind.
I don't ever want to see another Congressional jerk yell 'You lie' during the State of the Union. The bar has been lowered, I don't know if it will ever be raised back up where it belongs.
