Republican “Leaders” Need to Put a Stop to This Nonsense

The level of disrespect shown this President by conservative lawmakers has long been out of hand, but this latest move by Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) should have been stopped by Republican leaders immediately. Stockman has invited Ted Nugent to be his guest at the President’s State of the Union speech.

While it’s understandable Conservatives might want pro-gun guests in response to  gun-control guests for the Democrats, Ted Nugent is not the answer. This is a man who said:

If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.

as well as:

I was in Chicago and said, “Hey, Obama you might want to suck on one of these you punk.” Obama, he’s a piece of shit, and I told him to suck on my machine gun. Let’s hear it for him. And then I was in New York. I said, “Hey, Hillary, you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless bitch. Since I’m in California, how about [Senator] Barbara Boxer [D-CA], she might want to suck on my machine gun. And [Senator] Dianne Feinstein [D-CA], ride one of these you worthless whore.

Stockman, in a statement to the press about his invited guest, stated:

“I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama. After the Address I’m sure Ted will have plenty to say.”

And that’s really the point of him being invited – to speak to the press afterward and make more incendiary comments, whip up the GOP base, and create more animosity between Americans. Stockman knows exactly what he’s doing, Boehner and his fellow GOP leaders know what Stockman’s doing; the fact that they will allow a House member to condone Nugent’s type of hate-filled rhetoric by inviting him to attend the State of the Union, epitomizes the decay of civility in the Republican Party.

Americans have always had respect for the office of the President, regardless of which party or individual occupied the White House. It used to be understood that there are certain times during the Presidency where the parties come together and treat each other with dignity, such as the State of the Union. This new Republican party however, confuses arrogance with statesmanship, and makes a mockery of political decorum.

John Boehner knows better, and it is reprehensible that he would allow this little stunt of Stockman’s to take place.

    Please, please let Nugent spew his brand of despicable nonsense for all the nation to hear. He’s the next Todd Akin, but on steroids. Every time he speaks, Dems get additional supporters. The only thing Karl Rove is doing right is his superPac to support moderate Republicans against right-wing extremists. Looking soooo forward to tonight!

    That’s not even close to what Dems do – they actually carry out their threats such as when they were protesting at the passage of the “Right To Work” laws in Michigan. We all watched as union thug Democrats pounded on a Fox news contributor because he dared to ask them a question and then, they pulled a tent down on people that were inside including an elderly lady and a child. Next, I remember when I was at a Town Hall meeting and a black Conservative was beat to a pulp by 6 Democrats. To this day, he has issues because of that atrocity. I don’t remember Ted Nugent or Todd Akin touching anyone. Did any of you Libs. think of the fact that Obama the Terrorist will have several illegal aliens at his State of the Union address. He no more believes in the Federal laws than the thugs that committed the crimes above or the illegal aliens that break our laws. He’s a criminal himself for his illegal, unconstitutional Executive Orders which makes all of you Libs. accessories to his crimes.

      Tell us another story, grandpa.

    And you’ve been watching too much CNBC who is a mouth piece for Obumster, you’re just too stupid to know it. What is it, are you on the government dole, you don’t want to loose your meal ticket right? Give me some instances of bullshit that Limbaugh and Beck have been wrong about. I can give you plenty about Obumster. Let’s start with his constant rhetoric about how he’s produced jobs since his inception into our lives. He touts a number of 4M when in fact, he is minus a couple of hundred thousand and our unemployment rate is 9.6% to 11% instead of the 7.9% he lies about. I know it’s hard for Koolaid drinking Libs to understand, but Obumster’s jobless numbers don’t take into account the people that have dropped out of the market because there are no jobs to be found. Once you drop off because you’re not collecting unemployment, there’s no way to track you. Next, after shoving Obamanocare down our throats, it is now well known that HC premiums are increasing 38%. Obumster has convinced dummies like you that he’s lowered HC rates. Do some research, Lib, that is if you can read. I can keep going because I have the FACTS unlike Libs who are clueless.

      You should change your name to “Ivan-the-idiot”. Your troll rants are full of brainwashed nonsense. Let’s start with your first idiotic statement: CNBC is a conservative business network that is anti-Obama. Every right-winger except you knows that. Second, the President has never come up with the employment numbers; not under Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush or Obama. That’s another myth spread by Limbaugh and Beck that you apparently latched onto. The Bureau of Labor Statistics compiles and reports employment numbers. It is an independent statistical agency that cannot be swayed by any president. But your hatred for all things black has you believing these anti-Obama myths. Finally, insurance companies are entirely managed by Republicans, that’s a fact. You will not find one Democrat managing an insurance company. So when insurance premiums are raised by 38%, there is one group to blame, as usual – Republicans. And oh how they hate Obamacare. No more Republican-managed insurance companies jacking up premiums and denying children with cancer because of their pre-existing condition. That damn darkie in the White House is a socialist, right Ivan-the-idiot?

      Move on to another place where your lies are welcome, troll.

    Oh, a typical Lib., when you don’t have facts, you call names just a like a two year in a sandbox. Are you black and have an inborn hatred for whites or are you a Socialist white guy with a phobia about being white? If you believe CNBC is a Conservative station, you are a definite moon bat. So you think Rachel Maddow is a conservative? Really???? Maybe you should start watching more of your favorite lame stream media station. Oh yes, Obumster has screamed loud and wide about the jobs he has created (he did it again last night) and his administration has followed right along with the same message just like the good little minions they are and in his first four years of Otrocity, he blamed the loss of jobs on Bush. It’s been joked about how everything was Bush’s fault – typical of a Socialist to blame the guy down the block. I wander who he’ll blame for this four years of job loss and I wonder who he’ll blame when he crashes our economy? He’ll blame all those people he put out of work. So where is your evidence that insurance companies are owned by white guys? Where are your facts? It is apparent you know nothing about Obamanocare just like everything else, the premiums just went up the beginning of this year and 7M people will loose their insurance with their employer because it’s cheaper to pay the extortion penalty in the Obamanocare law. You haven’t given me one fact, all you’ve done is spout the same old hatred for white people and the same old Libtard, moon bat insults. For your information, I despise stupid people like you, no matter what color you are.

      Rachel Maddow is on MSNBC, not CNBC. CNBC is the conservative network for wall street and business. Ranting on about a conservative network being liberal is making you look like a fool.

      Try reading the comments: I never said insurance companies are owned by white guys. I said they are managed by Republicans, which I know first-hand because I worked for many years for two large insurance carriers. The insurance industry attracts Republican managers because its all about money. Money comes in, money goes out. They produce nothing and make obscene profits off fear. You’ll never find a “bleeding-heart liberal” managing a business that produces nothing but creates obscene profits. Its not in our DNA.

      You know nothing about Obamacare. The “penalty” doesn’t start until that portion of the law takes effect in 2014. The insurance industry moved to raise their premiums to screw as many people as possible before Obamacare takes effect.

      You’re so blinded by your hatred of our first black President that you can do nothing but spread myths and lies. You did the same thing to the Clintons; spread myths and lies. It kills people like you to lose elections. You preach democracy, but it only counts when you win. You’re sore f*cking losers. Fortunately for this wonderfully diverse country, people like you do nothing but add to ranks of Democrats. 2012 was the end of your racist reign. Even with juryrigging, you’re on the way out. Diversity is the future. Get on board or get out of the way.

      And finally, when I told you to find another site, I meant it. Our About This Site page is clear: this site is for Democrats. We don’t tolerate right-wing trolls like you. Take your vicious, racist rhetoric to a site that accepts your kind. Try Breitbart; they’re more your speed.
