Why do republicans hate America?
 
2012-06-03 05:05:28 PM  
HE'S ONTO US! QUICK, RALLY THE BIRTHERS!


In other news, Obama has a "Ric Romero moment," the GOP thrills to the news of their success, and the rest of us that aren't rich are still suffering thanks to four years of Republican obstinacy and double-dealing.

The GOP needs to be voted out of Congress. The Oval Office is important, but Congress is where the GOP is killing us. Start kicking rich incumbent Republican conservative hypocritical asswipes out of both sides of the friggin' Capitol.

The problem is that the next failure will probably be global and won't even start here. When that happens, I think winning elections might be the least of their worries.

Winning elections will never be the least of their worries. THAT is part of the problem.

Republicans hoped Obama would fail. He has succeeded doing what he intended to do. And that has been a tragedy for this country because the job experience and wages of a generation will be lost as a result.

kinda difficult to do that when the GOP block all his efforts. meanwhile, wall street is shipping jobs oversease fast as they can.

SlothB77: he could, you know, revive the economy. then this would all be moot.


And how would he do that?

The Republican house has already said and shown they'll let this country turn to cinders before they give him one inch. And if that doesn't happen fast enough for them, they'll even toss the first match.

So this. In spite what the GOP wants EVERYONE to believe, Obama is not a dictator and can't unilaterally fix all the problems with this country by executive order. It requires congress to step up, something the republicans at least, have no desire to do.

it's not 'merely' lack of desire on the part of the GOP. the Republicans are actively opposing anything/everything Obama does. the republican party doesn't just want Obama to fail, they NEED him to fail...and fail badly. the GOP plan to unseat Obama requires the country to suffer, preferably in some horrific biblical manner. then the Republicans can play the savior, rush in and pick up the pieces and lecture us all about morality.

I never said it was a GOOD plan...but it IS a plan.

the GOP hasn't even bothered to hide it either. they've blocked everything Obama tries to do, even if it's dangerous to get in the way or hurts their own voter base. Party first, country second.

now, to be completely fair the DNC isn't exactly run by the smartest people on the planet. they've got their fair share of egomaniacs, nutballs and idiots. I'm not sure thier plans for the country are viable...but at least the Democrats aren't willing to destroy the country in order to advance their political agenda. Democrat voters aren't running around murdering abortion doctors, or shooting elected officials in the head. Democrats aren't talking about throwing acid on Republicans in congress. I disagree with a lot of what the Democrats want to do...but at no point have I ever gotten the impression that the Dems want to murder me for wanting to do things differently. The Republicans though....you're either with 'em or you're the enemy. and the GOP will do *anything* to beat their enemies.

Tell ya what GOP: you can legitimately blame Obama for the economy after you actually let him try to fix it.

not surprising. the Limbaugh wing of the GOP has been doing their level best to purge moderates from the party. in their view, 'moderate' is another word for 'weakness'.

There is an ad I keep seeing from the New Majority Agenda where the woman says, "I used to support President Obama's agenda." I always laugh with this phrase. Everyone opposes agendas. The word "agenda" anymore is meant to mean radical, subversive, etc.. No one says, "I support Soandso's agenda!"

My point is I hate a bunch of people, especially campaign and political action folks.

Europe could be in flames and I honestly think most of Washington would still be primarily concerned with re-election, or more to the point, blaming the other side of the aisle. There's no more shame or honor left in that town.

One sure sign of a country that fails at democracy is the inability of the losing side to accept the victory of the opposing side after an election. That's essentially the Republican party's position since 2008 and all the harping on Obama shows this. Loyal opposition and even moderate antagonism are one thing, complete and utter opposition to ANYTHING the president and his party proposes is another. Yet another sign American democracy is broken.

Speaking of which. I have items I must remove from the oven with mitts. Because the only good mitt is the one worn on the hand of... Oh for craps sake I suck at metaphors. Romney was not a good governor by any means. He listened too much to special interests groups in Massachusetts. I doubt he'll be much better as President.

Should Republicans be angry that they were right about Obama's policies being failures?

Here we are several trillion dollars more in debt and we're still in a recession. Most people would admit they failed at this point.

So what you're saying is that the Republicans won't accept the validity of any election they can't steal?

Not only do they reject a result they don't like, but they don't even want to count the votes.

Oh fark there go the Republicans making up problems and championing the mundane like it's something they created and own.
Notice how most of those right-wing anti-gay groups have the word "Family" in them? Ok? Tell me, who isn't or hasn't been part of a family? I rest my case.

I WISH it were a do-nothing Congress. The Republicans have been very active in their attempts to make sure that the President can't get anything done, no matter the consequences for the nation.

Ask the Republicans. Private sector job growth has been quite good under Obama; however, that's been offset by public sector job losses, which can be placed squarely at the feet of GOP austerity measures.

It's not just the Republicans in the federal government. Just look at the states now being run by Republican governors with Republican led state Houses and Senates. They have been stripping out public jobs as fast as they could the past few years, all under the auspices of public workers supposedly being paid too much money. My thought is, the governors and state Reps and Senators are also public workers. Why the hell aren't some of them giving up their jobs?

So your definition of failure is 27 continuous months of private sector job growth, and 4.2 million new jobs created. Is it also your position that European-style austerity measures would have succeeded?
