No plan at all

5/16/2012

When President Barack Obama took the oath to obey and preserve the Constitution, Republicans took an oath to obstruct and prevent. Using every procedural trick, they orchestrated a dedicated denial of governance against a duly elected president.

If anything could be passed, it did so without a single Republican vote. Day after day, months on end, the conservative collective opposed every proposal, appointment, budget funding item, regulatory change and more.

Enforced by fear of being tea-partied, Republicans did everything but make the toilets overflow to stop the workings of government.

Does any other American think this sounds like a really sore loser?

Is it the purpose of the party out of power to sabotage the party in power, and the president, government and us with them?

Shouldn't the party last rejected show us a better idea instead? What would they replace President Obama's radical Islamic agenda with? Where is their plan? How would they answer the pressing needs of a people who rightly look to government as the only solution?

Don't we all know by now? The only Republican plan is no plan at all.

And if government should be run like a business, how come their last stooge-without-a-clue president gave all the big customers their money back?

And if full employment can only happen when taxes on the job creators are low, how come periods of full employment in the past were accompanied by much higher taxes on wealth?

How can Republicans deny science, truth, fact, and reality if it won't support their story line, but believe any lie that will?

Does it make any sense at all to send a tea party approved candidate to represent us when they've signed a pledge to not get along with anybody, no compromise, no cooperation, no discussion?

To be fair, conservatives may well be correct to deny evolution, it never happened to them.
