Republicans Want to “Cripple America”
Bingo! Not only is President Obama getting more assertive in his last few speeches, but he’s finally figured out the GOP’s true agenda. It has nothing to do with “disagreement over the issues” or “two different visions for America” or any of that bullshit. And nobody with an IQ higher than ten actually believes that if we keep lowering corporate taxes and keep gutting the agencies that protect us, at some point everything will click together magically and billions of new jobs will be created so fast our heads will be spinning.
Nope. The Republicans want to cripple America so Obama will look bad and lose the election in 2012. It’s that simple. Republicans have repeatedly said — publicly — that their number one priority is to make Obama a one-term president. And the phrase “Obama’s Waterloo” has been spewed again and again in certain teabagging circles.
At a fundraiser today, Obama said:
“From the moment I took office what we've seen is a constant ideological pushback against any kind of sensible reforms that would make our economy work better and give people more opportunity.”
He said the GOP alternative is “an approach to government that will fundamentally cripple America in meeting the challenges of the 21st century.”
He also took a swipe at Rick Perry. Without mentioning any names, he referred to “a governor whose state is on fire, denying climate change.”
Uh oh, Obama should be careful. If the Republicans get mad at him, they might start sabotaging every piece of Democratic legislation, even when it’s a bill that the GOP was previously in favor of. They might even start putting anonymous holds on every new appointment Obama tries to make. Or if they got really really mad at Obama, they might even accuse him of being a Muslim. They might even try to persuade their inbred useful idiots that Obama was born in Kenya.
Nah. Even the Republicans wouldn’t stoop that low. Would they?
