Republican Tea Party Candidates Think We Don't Know Better
I find it offensive when Republican tea party candidates, like Mark Kirk, assume voter fraud if large numbers of African-Americans turn out to vote for Democrats. These bigots even assume single women don’t know any better when they vote for Democrats. Republicans have repeatedly shown themselves to be dishonest hypocrites, yet they expect us to vote for them. Republicans have done NOTHING but wreck our economy and they expect all of our support. I think it’s despicable, outrageous and awfully arrogant.
I have seen and heard all I can stand of the Republican tea party noise from Joe Lewis’ disrespectful “You lie!” hurled at our President and John Boehner’s “Hell no you can’t!” rage on the House floor. I’ve had enough of their tirades. I’m tired of so much focus placed on the tea party madness –as if they represent the sentiment of every American. These bastards do not speak for me.
The Republican tea party thinks we don’t get what they’re trying to do. We get it and see very clearly what they’re trying to do and it’s not only outright racism and bigotry but classism as well. Going after the minimum wage and attacking the Unions while shipping manufacturing jobs to other countries has taken a serious toll on our economy.
Cutting funding for education, fire departments, eliminating gay rights and deregulating banks will not help our communities. But it’s not a part of the great Republican tea party plan to repair our economy and build the middle class. John Boehner and Mitch McConnell want to win at any cost and their loyalty is with the highest corporate donors not American citizens.
Republicans are notorious for rehashing the same tired rhetoric while producing very little solutions or ideas on how to improve our economy. The GOP would probably work better as a circus act or a house of smoke and mirrors. Yelling “Where are the jobs!” while helping to ship jobs overseas is hypocritical and they know it but have no shame.
The Pledge to America looked like a photo album from a Senior Citizens home. It had one page regarding jobs, devoid of solutions. Yet, Republicans ask “Where are the jobs?” Republicans are heavy on criticism and light on solutions and facts.
Republicans demand transparency while secretly accepting contributions from Rove’s shadowy donors, Koch Industries and who knows what foreign entities is hypocrisy of epic proportions. They’ve played the same game with Stimulus. Publicly against the Stimulus while privately requesting funds.
They think a majority of American voters don’t know better but I think we’ll show them what we know by the night of November 2nd 2010.
I never thought I’d live to see the day where so-called right wing Christians acted so cruel toward people who want to see our country make progress for the benefit of ALL citizens. These fake Christians don’t care about the poor, unemployed, our environment or the sick. The religious right wing doesn’t care about children who have been denied health insurance due to a pre-existing condition. They’re in favor of Republicans repealing the Affordable Care Act – aka health reform. Neither do they care about consumer protections from banks and credit card companies who prey on their customers.
How can the religious right wing claim to love God who they cannot see, yet show disdain and disrespect to their neighbor in need who they can see? HYPOCRITES!
The religious right wing DOES care about the wealthy, profits and stomping on the middle class and the poor. Demonizing the LGBT community seems to be their favorite thing to do. They love to put their fake family values, sanctity of marriage hypocrisy on full public display.
I’m not a religious person. However, I do recall the meaning of Christian being “Christ-like.” To hear the religious right disrespecting our President, Liberals, Progressives and Democrats because we want affordable healthcare, better education for our children, cleaner energy sources, more regulation of banks, insurance companies and the oil, coal and gas industries is APPALLING. The religious right wing bigots love to hate and hate to show love.
The left wing is accused of being lazy, not wanting to work, accused of wanting everything free, accused of criticizing or envying the success of the wealthy, accused of trying to share or redistribute the wealth, socialism, Marxism, fascism and just being lazy. These ‘’Christians” are experts at name-calling, hatred, lying and smearing while invoking the name of God. I often wonder if they’ve actually read the Bible at all.
Well excuse me for being “my brother’s keeper” and caring about not only my well-being but the well-being of others. Excuse me for fighting for social justice to keep our communities thriving, where people have gainful employment earning a decent living wage. Excuse me for caring about my neighbor who I see suffering!
Left up to the religious right wing our country will be taken back 200 hundred years. Our country would become like “Little House on the Prairie” where women were not allowed equal rights, Gays were not allowed to show themselves in public and Blacks were slaves.
It saddens me to see so much hatred of the POTUS and I know it’s mostly the sore losers who supported those imbeciles Palin and McCain along with racists and bigots.
Many of you haters only hate President Obama because of lies Glenn Beck or Sarah Palin told you. Worse still many of you dislike Obama because he’s an African-American who doesn’t fit your mold of what you think an African-American man is supposed to be like.
You’re jealous and hateful of a successful African-American MAN because you feel only a white man is entitled to be POTUS. Let’s keep it real honest. Socialist, Marxist, uppity, elitist are all the new “N” word for President Obama.
President Obama has accomplished more than any other President since FDR, health & financial reforms being the two highest achievements. I know the Republican Tea Party does not want to acknowledge that fact or any other facts. All the Republican Tea Party has are lies, fear and hate. And I mean they hate everyone and almost everything. Some of them need a hug and a psychiatrist to address their deep seeded issues.
