So here we go again. More self inflicted kicks to the nuts on the way. So the Rs are just going to sit on their hands and do nothing while the sequester kicks in an we head into a recession. Then shut down the government. Then hold the country hostage over the debt ceiling again. All because they think they will be able to pin the results on the Dems so it helps them get elected during the midterms ? WOW.
This country just doesn't stand a chance as long Rs control the house with Boner as speaker and Alien man
heading the Rs in the Senate.
Look like we are going to have to suffer through this until the mid terms when the Dem beat enough of these remaining anti government non legislation Rs so they can gain control of the house. It won't be easy with the gerrymandering and voting restrictions the Rs have employed but the Rs are making it easier by the day.
What a disaster the Rs have been to this country since the Bush election cycle. Actually it started well before that but since Bush it has been really really bad. Amazing that boob was actually President for 8 years.
- 3 Trillion Dollar Iraq War based on lies. Manufactured crisis. Pre-emptive war of choice ignoring the facts.
- Bank failure and economic collapse based on their anti fact back economic idea. Trickle down.
- Lower credit rating. Manufactured crisis based on the debt limit.
So whats the total damage on that economic collapse at now ? 6-7 Trillion ?
None of this had to happen you know. We did this to ourselves. We were on pretty solid ground when Clinton handed over the keys. Not perfect but way way way better then now.
And the list goes on and on.
Hey, at least their leaders have made a lot of money selling book and getting speaker fees. And they did get pretty close to their dream of taking over the country and installing their version of the Taliban.
I guess it could be worse. McCain could be president with Palin as VP
After 8 years of Bush, they would have cemented this country as going plum loco.
This party is a complete joke. They are not interested at all in actually governing. They don't even believe in government or science or facts, so how are they going to actually make it work ? At least people have started to see them for what they really are. They have been a complete disaster and we have no one to blame but our collective selfs because we allowed them to get into office to begin with. Such is the way of a democracy. The people can get fooled into electing the wrong people when scared enough. If the country has enough backward thinking non science religious zealots and enough people are scared, they will elect backward thinking non science religious zealots into office.
So sad things went so wrong.
