We’ve written extensively here on Miscellany101 about how the GOP is the obstructionist/racist party of today’s America. It’s really bad however when their partisanship interferes with their governance and what’s good for the public they say they serve. Why anyone would accept the declaration of their party’s titular head and one of its stalwarts that it wants to pursue a strategy to soil a sitting president’s term, even if it means pursuing goals that prove detrimental to the country is astonishing, to say the least. Especially when this president, Obama, has in cases of foreign policy, almost mirrored the stance taken by George Bush, in effect saving a lot of Bush appointees from the embarrassing specter of being tried for high crimes and misdemeanors, the Republican’s position is meant to humiliate Obama and the country too for electing him.
It’s particulary bad however when former conservatives call the GOP out on their racist tendencies, like this one here
So, Boehner, using the phony excuse that Congress wouldn’t be back in session until 6:30 p.m.—as Roger Simon points out Congress was technically never out of session, a move designed to keep Obama from making recess appointments—essentially did what Massa Rush said to do and he put the uppity Negro in his place.
There you have it, all you doubters about the motives of these guys. Straight from the mouth of the de facto chairman of the Republican Party. John Boehner put Obama “in his place.” The President of the United States got “smacked down,” as he “attempted to force his way to the front of the line.”
and no one blinks an eye. But we’re not done……..
Democratic Governors Association Chair and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley said Thursday that Republicans were opposed to any plan proposed by President Barack Obama that could lead to job creation.
“I firmly believe that Republicans in Congress, driven by a concerted group, have decided that it is not in their party’s political interest to have the president succeed at creating any jobs,” he said at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor. “And I believe therefore they will do their very best to deny him any victories that could lead to job creation or a speedier recovery.”
“I don’t think there is another rational explanation for much of their opposition,” O’Malley added.
There’s is another explanation, and it lies in the comments of Limbaugh and his ditto heads. It’s about putting the black guy in his place. The GOP has taken a decidedly antagonistic position in American politics…an ‘in your face’ approach to its opponents and the American people. We vote for them…….we can NOT vote for them the next time they come up for reelection!
