Repugnant Republican Reprobates, Benghazi Freak Show!

“They won’t pass a serious jobs bill, or raise the minimum wage, or reform immigration, but House Republicans think they can earn their pay for the rest of the year by exposing nonexistent malfeasance on the part of the Obama administration.”

 

“Both actions stem from the same impulse: a need to rouse the most fervent anti-Obama wing of the party and keep it angry enough to deliver its donations and votes to Republicans in the November elections. For a while it seemed as if the Affordable Care Act would perform that role, but Republicans ran into a problem when the country began to realize that it was not destroying American civilization but in fact helping millions of people.

 

Party leaders needed something more reliable, so they went back and revived two dormant scandals from last year, the embers of which were faithfully tended by Republican adjuncts on Fox News and talk radio. Their hope is to show that the administration is corrupt and untrustworthy, and if Hillary Rodham Clinton also gets roughed up in the process, so much the better.

 

Four Americans, including the United States ambassador, died in Benghazi, and their deaths have been crassly used by Republicans as a political cudgel, wildly swung in the dark. They have failed to provide proof for any number of conspiracy theories about the administration’s failures, including the particularly ludicrous charge from Representative Darrell Issa that Mrs. Clinton, then the secretary of state, told the Pentagon to “stand down” and not help defend the American compound.” [New York Times]

REPUBLICANS BENGHAZI FREAK SHOW MAY 8 2014

 

98% of the Country is Middle-Class or Poor, and yet they repeatedly vote Republicans into office, that is against their own interest!

The Republicans in the House and in the Senate have literally brought the country to a “standstill,” and the Majority Leader should do something about it.

 

There are many areas to criticize President Obama, but, there are areas where his policies have worked for the good of the country.

 

Look at the where the stock Market is today and contrast that with 2008! People’s 401K Plans and Pension Funds were almost wiped out, however, with the S & P doing very well, people can “live” again.

 

The unemployment that was so unbelievably bad, has bounced back and even though it is not perfect, unemployment today is far better than when Obama took office.

 

Wall Street dishonesty catapulted by Republicans indulgence to “only” protect the rich, crashed the housing market for the “working-class,” and it literally fell off the cliff, but in the recent years, we are rebounding!

 

America’s Automotive Industry was saved due this President and his predecessor, George W. Bush, willingness to not give a hand-out, but rather, a helping hand.

 

AIG – The world’s largest Insurance Company if allowed to fail it would have cost the Tax-Payers 1.5 Trillion. That too was saved and AIG have repaid all of the loans that were made by the Federal Government.

 

When you think about it, the House Republicans have voted 37 times to repeal Obamacare, and they are at it again, going for a 38 Vote, while other very important legislation are tossed by the way-side!

 

The recklessness by the Republicans does truly hurt the Middle-Class and the Poor and even though 98% of the country is in that category, they still vote these people into office! Why do people vote against their own best interest, I will never know!
