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.”

Pow!

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?

Finally is right.

Now he needs to talk to the "job creating" zillionaires (who ain't doin' such a bang-up job of creating jobs) and tell them to fucking take one for the team and cough up a little extra $ in taxes.

To put it in perspective - think about what our citizens did in WWI and WWII. They sacrificed overseas and at home for the good of the country - even if they weren't so comfy doing it. The least these brazillionaire cocksuckers, who have benefited immensely from the society built on the backs of their ancestors, could do is sacrifice a little. You know - Don't buy new Bentleys for the kids this year...or diamonds for the wife, girlfriends, and secret gay masseur. Something really, sacrificially grueling.

I ain't sayin' that'll do it all, but it sure as fuck is an easy start. Then we can start fixing the tax code.

Cheers :-)

If the selfish Klanservative Klanbagger Kooks had been in charge in the WWII era, we'd be speaking German. Well, you'd be; as a non-Aryan, I wouldn't exist.

Better late than never, to put it mildly.

". . . everything will click together magically and billions of new jobs will be created so fast our heads will be spinning."

Just like during George W. Bush' reign of error, right? Oh, wait, no . . .

Well put, Tom. Obama should stay on this message until infants just starting to talk can recite it from hearing on TV so much.

I have yet to hear another Democrat challenger have you? And yet I still believe his party seems to leave him almost twisting in the wind.

Do we need a Bachmann or Perry Presidency to rally our troops and get them in 2016 or should we do this now?

The Unions are the only people I see putting up a fight and their backs are against the wall.

A lot of collective energy put this man in the White House, where is it now?

The Only Republican Agenda is:
1. Smear Him
2. Regain the White House
3. Finish where they left off on their Tax Cuts, Deregulation, and Deficient Spending Agenda.
4. Don't be surprised then if they torpedo the Tea Party

Carlos: It's incredible how much we've deteriorated since the days of WWI and WWII. I lost count of how many times my mother would start a sentence with "During the war..." Everything was rationed. The whole country sacrificed and pulled together. I doubt if anyone blubbered about "class warfare" or "big government."

JR: Good point.

Randal: You mean Christmas Eve Eve Eve?

SW: I too hope Obama stays on this message until it's parroted by everybody.

Erik: Obama has been steadily losing support from the people who voted for him in '08, and I think that's mostly because everyone was getting tired of his constant "compromising." He's finally started swinging back, and just in time. I don't know if his poll numbers are up yet or not, but this has to help.

He's finally stopped seeking that non-existent "bipartisanship" and has started framing and defining the issues, and blasting the Republicans. He needs to keep doing this.

I believe they're watching and hoping what they see and hear from him now will hold up. They're looking to see if he backs up his words with deeds. If he does, if he leads the way his '08 supporters wanted and expected him to all along, they will get behind him.

One thing I'm sure of: There's no vindictive desire on the left to somehow get even with Obama or teach him a lesson because he disappointed. If he's gotten past his doormat stage, quits appeasing the bullies and instead meets them head on, an amazing number of troops will have his back.

If someone truly had his back then I think he could move forward. That's the problem, and the reason why I would never be a Republican as you are talking about a party of 90% White, Straight, Chauvinist, and Christian.

The Moderates, the Non Christians, and the Minorities are kept to a minimum and made tokens when needed.

I remember when a Californian Republican was nothing like a Midwestern Republican - now I can't tell the difference. Regardless where they are from, they all echo their Southern, Fundamentalist Masters.

When needed they all fall in line.

Now we have Black Democrats, Feminist, Gay, Hispanic, Labor, Traditional Southern, Liberal Western ....You get the Idea.

They just can't seem to fall in line.

This is so funny becausse I know so many on the right that believe that the Lefties want the US to fail so that they can create their socialist utopia.

Top 10% (make >$113,799) pay
