Time and time again, the “republican” party fails to deliver Thing One when it comes to actual, you know, governing. Granted, they claim to loathe the very idea of government, but since they have invested so much time, money, and crime to seize control of most of America’s institutions, you’d think they’d have some idea of what to do with said control. But nooooooo:
Number A: Obamacare: the two most powerful legislators in the world (Bo
ehner and McConnell) have not so much as a single clue on what to replace it with.
CBS’s Scott Pelley asked again, “So how do you do it? What’s the Republican plan?” Boehner answered with a weak, “We’re, We’re working on this. Having discussions amongst our members, got a lot of divergent views about how best to go back to a doctor/patient relationship that’s revered.”
Pelley kept hammering away and said that this is one of the biggest criticisms of the Republican Party is that they know what they are against, but can’t tell people what they are for. McConnell said that Pelley was mischaracterizing the success of Obamacare and claimed that the ACA will fail. McConnell said that the chances, of getting rid of Obamacare with Obama in the White House, were slim, but that Republicans were going to make the effort.
Pelley replied, “You don’t have an alternative.”
Letter 2: The Constitution: you know, the foundational document on which all of our laws are based? Right,that Constitution. Teapubbies repeatedly display their ignorance of what it says, so when they DO come up with an”idea”, it’s likely to be as illegal as Hell. Some Teapublican ideas actually try to nullify parts of the Constitution, ferchrissakes:
Shortly after the American people re-elected President Obama to serve a second term, a rash of states appealed to the White House to secede from the Union because they objected to the election’s outcome. When they were not granted permission to rip the United States apart, they immediately began taking steps to shred the Constitution they claim to love and declare they were laws unto themselves by way of nullification.
The same nullification frenzy that led to the American Civil War is spreading through Republican-controlled states where legislators in at least seven states passed laws nullifying federal laws involving firearms. Although Republicans are prone to claim anything President Obama supports is dictatorial overreach regardless he does not pass laws, nullification supporters have taken their outrage to a new level best expressed by Tennessee State Senator Mae Beavers who said, “You think that the Supreme Court is the ultimate arbiter of any of these laws. I don’t believe that. I don’t believe it was ever granted the authority under the Constitution; the Supreme Court is a dictatorship.” The Republican, who swore an oath to support the Constitution, ignores a 1958 Supreme Court decision involving southern state’s nullifying desegregation orders, and its ruling addressed Beavers’ contention and said, “No state legislator or executive or judicial officer can war against the Constitution without violating his solemn oath to support it,” but since Republicans do not acknowledge the Constitution as the law of the land, supporting it is moot and their oath is irrelevant.
Thirdly: The GOPee cares naught for facts. Seriously, they don’t. How can you solve a real problem if you don’t acknowledge reality? From religion to science through basic math to any topic you’d care to mention, the Repubs are more of a lame comedy act than they are a party capable of governing.
But then, when you hate government, of COURSE you’ll suck at governing,n’est ce pas?
