How Dumb are Republicans? Dumb Enough to Commit Political Suicide!

The Republican Party gave us the current recession, just like the Republican Party gave us The Great Depression. Despite the fact that Republican economic policies have historically proven to be WRONG-headed, over-and-over again, these dumb-asses want to dictate to the majority how we should proceed to repair the damage that Republicans have caused. WTF is that about!?

On last night’s news I saw Repuke after Repuke march up to the podium and stick his fat jowls into the microphone and whine and cry about tax cuts versus spending. Amazing.

Do these shit-for-brains Republican’ts really think that our memories are THAT short? I mean hell, when they were in charge of every branch of government they cut their executive pal’s and the upper 1% of the populations’ tax liability to damn near zero in order to prove to us that when the rich have more monies they will start more businesses and hire more of us great unwashed masses, and that will take us to the promised land. They have been preaching that stupid-fucking-lie to us for decades!

Ok ass-holes, how’d that work out for ya? It was a 100% FAILURE. It didn't work. It was a train wreck. It doesn’t work, and Republican economic policies are dead-fucking WRONG. Period. Look around people. This is a Republican economy we are stuck in right now.

Now who are you going to follow on economic policies? The same Morons who brought us to this point? Or are you finally fed-up enough to try a little change, hmmm?

Obama went directly to the Republicans. He went unarmed (so-to-speak). Obama went ALONE into their midst. Obama dropped some very positive and sensible elements of the stimulus package from his proposal in an effort to appease and cooperate. But, at this stage, it isn’t about the details of the stimulus package proposal for the Republicans anymore. Republicans are willing to play politics with the economic health of our nation. The economic health that they themselves are responsible for mis-managing. Now they want to delay the repair of their own damage and play politics while the majority of us are at risk and/or suffering as a result of their own misdeeds.

Obama is America’s President so he has to be diplomatic and as bipartisan as he can be. As citizens we have no such constraint. Let’s take back our country. Call and tell every Republican Senator where YOU stand. Tell them you are willing to donate MORE monies and more time and more effort to their political opponents in the next election cycle, and Blog about their misguided opposition to this economic stimulus plan and that you will not forget their opposition to it over time, and that you will not allow this issue to fade with time and that you will not rest until a political price has been extracted from those who are obstructing WE-THE-PEOPLE this time around. It ain’t enough to vote and then sit back and watch people. This is government for and BY THE PEOPLE. Get in the game. You can can be a game-changer. Yes We Can!

I'm not so sure Republicans are dumb, just VERY set in their ways. Grant you; while "the base" of the party still seems entrenched in policies that seem more from the 50s than now, the party is recognizing a need for change. The problem is folks like Rush Limbaugh who keeps the fanning the inflammatory flames of ignorance with outlandish rhetoric—all to increase his profits by the see outlandishness sells. It’s no accident that Rush has millions of followers. He can’t lose because as long as he’s “in the spotlight,” he makes money.


I agree with this blogger 100%, few things annoy me more than the nature of the republican party. Destructive!


the problem is americans are dumb, especially those who haven't been anywhere.those that think that texas is the center of universe.They constantly vote against themselves
