I didn’t think that the Republican Party could fall out of favor any further than it has. But in true Republican fashion, they never let you down when it comes to disappointment.
I would not have believed if I didn’t see it. Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher blamed Barack Obama for the violence and death on the streets of Iran. He said that if Obama had spoken up and denounced the violence three days ago, the violence would have been avoided. That woman who was shot and died on live television would be alive if it weren’t for Barack Obama. Yes, this guy actually said it.
And what if John McCain was our President. According to his recent remarks, we would be at war with another Islamic country; further degrading the standing of the United States around the world. And thousands upon thousands more would be dead. McCain couldn’t even answer this question: Is Barack Obama on the side of Majmud Ahmadinajad or is he on the side of the factions that are protesting an unfair election. McCain said “Well I know what side I”M on” insinuating that Barack Obama was on the side of the tyranical President. He’s kidding right? No he’s not.
Then, Republicans like radio host and columnist Mark Savage, and a Maryland Republican women’s group, and many others too numerous to mention, have been, just in the last few days, comparing Barack Obama to Hitler. They are litterally trying to make direct comparisons between Obama’s actions and policies to Hitler’s reign of terror. It is amazingly ridiculous and hateful, and so far off base that I can’t figure out who these people are trying to convince to join or support their party. They should have stuck with the idea that Barack’s birth certificate is a fake. At least that is a conspiracy theory the right wingers can REALLY get behind.
And now Mark Sanford, South Carolina Governor, admits to infidelity with an Argentinean woman, which explains where he was over Father’s Day Weekend when neither his wife, his sons, nor his administration knew where he was. And all the while they thought he was hiking the Appalachian Trail. He was lost in the woods, alright, metaphorically speaking. I can’t wait to see how Sanford’s close friend, Joe Scarborough handles this tomorrow morning on “Morning Joe”. Will he defend Sanford using tax payer money to go to Argentina for a booty call? Just this morning (Wednesday) Joe was defending Sanford’s behavior.
This is like a bad plot in a bad daytime soap opera. Even Luke and Laura knew when it was time to give up the Ice Princess plot line.
So Mark Sanford goes on TV today and gives a very long list of all the people he hurt; beginning with his sons. The young people behind him in his news conference were giggling. I don’t know who they were or why they were there. But it was sad, demeaning, and even somewhat humorous. If there were ever a reason to have a pre-planned speech or tele-prompters, that news conference was it. This is a man who said President Clinton should resign for such sexually deviant behavior. Well, Mr. Sanford, will you now resign, because you should based on your own moral compass.
Is it any wonder why the Republican Party is falling apart. What comes next; calling Barack Obama a extra-terrestrial being while some other Republican congressman gets arrested for molesting pre-school boys.
Barack Obama is poised to strike and get whatever he wants out of Congress; Republicans or Democrats. Now is the time Barack. DO IT! Get health care passed. Clean up the environment, Get all the troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, create millions of jobs, send America over into the financial abyss; finance our asses off. Who cares? It can’t possibly be worse than anything that brain trust we call the GOP can come up with.
And just yesterday, the GOP had begun to lay out plans to take back Congress in 2010. Sorry guys, I don’t think so.
And the cherry on top? Rush Limbaugh said about Sanford – “he could have been our JFK”.
I can’t even keep up anymore with the train wreck and casualties that make up the GOP.
It’s time to Fade to Black.
