Republicans gone missin’ again – in 2010 they received an injection of new blood energetic men and women ready to “take back our Country. But, the Old Republican Establishment gave them a grand welcome and shot them in the foot every time they stepped forward with a substantial idea that would strengthen our Nation’s foundation.
What the freshmen didn’t know is the Old Republican Establishment has been around for a long time and they’re happy basking in the sun, playing golf and living high on the hog off of taxpayer’s money. They actually black balled the freshman stars like Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, Allen West, Marco Rubio, Michelle Bachmann and played their usual game of politics just enough to throw the freshmen off their game plan.
Boehner kept stirring the pot, putting on a lot of nonsensical theatrics in an attempt to appease Americans using Obama’s favorite mode of operation, distraction and division of the troops. Boehner shed a few tears and jumped around like a hyena with hemorrhoids, but the X-rated theatrics was just a replay of their tomfoolery and monkey shines since Newt Gingrich left the White House.
Listening to Boehner’s update again this week was pretty much like listening to a teenager trying to explain away his over charged credit card. Boehner starts out by tattling on the Obama Administration and finishes by telling us that gas prices are high, inflation has kicked us in the butts and the economy stinks. It’s all show and go, nothing more or nothing less just a carefully planned canned speech so the Old Republican Establishment can just keep kicking the can down the road.
In 2009 Americans reluctantly handed over 787 billion dollars to the one some call Obama never to see the money again. Where were those bright eyed bushy tailed Republicans who promised to watch our backside and keep us safe? Gone Missin’!
Not one Republican watched out for us, because they were too busy sitting on their a- - - s enjoying the good life and spending our money. Americans were stonewalled and the Republicans in the White House have to take full responsibility for their negligent attitude – the Republicans didn’t have a clue, nor did they care where our stimulus money was going, who the beneficiaries were or whose pockets Obama was lining with our money during his redistribution spree.
They seem to think that they have some sort of political immunity when it comes to the oath Article VI of the Constitution specifies that members of Congress shall be bound by an oath to support the Constitution.
The Republicans go under the false assumption that telling Americans after the fact is just hunky dory and removes all responsibility from them as public servants working for the people. We heard about the GM scam after the fact. They told us about the “green company” scandals like Solyndra, Sun State, Fisker after millions of dollars have been confiscated never to be seen again.
They ooh and ah over the GSA scandal and the latest the secret service scandal in Columbia, but they’re always a day late and a dollar short – they feign shock every time Americans get hit below the belt. They tell us about the obscene bonuses being handed out to the Freddie, Fannie, AIG and Solyndra executives but once we’re told they consider their mission completed.
Congress knew about the Fast and Furious gunrunner operation before the murders of Brian Terry, Jaime Zapata and hundreds of innocent Mexican men, women and children because AIG sent Congress a memo discussing the changes that must be implemented, the lack of organization and dangers that the operation imposes, but not one Republican stood up and did anything about it.
They waited until Issa and Grassley blew the lid off the operation and then they half -heartedly demanded that Eric Holder resign.
When they succumbed to the pressures of the Obama Administration and talked us into raising the debt ceiling; they sealed that deal by promising frivolous Government spending would be ruthlessly cut to pay for the increase, but that didn’t happen. They allowed Elena Kagan to slip thru the cracks and become a Supreme Court Justice because frankly they were just too damn lazy to do their homework.
They’ve been missin’ since Newt Gingrich left our White House because once Newt was gone they revived their “Elite Club” fattened up their bank accounts and have been living happily ever after.
So America it’s time to “Take Back Our Country” for as Ronald Reagan said, To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will.
Let’s quit feeding the crocodiles for they are eating us for breakfast, lunch and dinner one bite at a time. Stand up and fight for your children, grandchildren and generations to come and let’s restore our Nation to “One Nation under God with Liberty and Justice for All.”
May God Bless America
