I’ll be frank – most Republicans that I’ve had the displeasure of meeting quickly prove to be hateful, racist, homophobic, sexist, dishonest, unpatriotic, America-hating pricks. It drives them crazy to have a black man in the White House. Every time a state passes marriage equality, they talk like its the end of civilization. Even working-class Republicans would sell their souls to align with rich bastards like the Kock brothers, their idols, and they would eagerly help the Kocks to lower their own wages, eliminate their benefits, and say “thank you Kock brothers” while they and their loved ones continue down the path of financial ruin. But hey, at least they stuck it to that black man in the White House.
With the help of the lunatic fringe, Republican leaders tried for months to gain politically from the tragedy in Benghazi. They worked tirelessly to inflate the “embassy attack” into a full-blown scandal and impeachable event, even though they knew all along that the so-called “embassy” was no embassy at all, but a CIA operation that was attacked, with special-ops trained CIA agents responding. They claimed to be outraged that jets were not scrambled to thwart the attack, even though military officials said it was an impossibility. They dissected the statements released from the Administration a thousand different ways looking for the slightest bit of damaging info, but still left most reporters asking the question, “What’s the scandal? I still don’t know what the scandal is!”
One of their primary talking points was that the ambassador of the Benghazi “embassy” asked for additional security numerous times but the White House refused to give it to them, which, in their minds, was the leading cause of the deaths at the embassy. The GOP refused to discuss the fact that House Republicans gutted embassy security in their newly-found crusade against debt and deficits. Yesterday we learned that the late Ambassador Stevens actually turned down offers by military personnel for additional security, twice.
Then there’s the huge blunder by ABC News that leads us back to Republican dishonesty. ABC ran a completely false story last Friday based on an anonymous source that supposedly saw emails proving that the White House doctored statements for purely political reasons. The smoking-gun in the scandal. Except not only did this source NOT see any emails, the actual emails were edited to make the White House appear to have lied and feed the GOP’s scandal/impeachment agenda. Guess who edited and leaked the doctored emails? You guessed it – dishonest, racist REPUBLICANS. How long do you think we’ll have to wait until that cowardly little arsonist and car thief Darrell Issa has a hearing on this? Until eternity, is my guess.
Instead of following Rush Limbaugh’s lead and his hatred for that “negro in the White House”, Republicans should try embracing diversity, stop the obstructionism, and get back to work. President Obama is not that “Kenyan, socialist, secret Muslim, dictator” in the White House. He’s our President, elected by a majority of us Americans; one of only 6 presidents to have been elected twice with at least 51% of the popular vote. Its the will of the American people. Its time to accept it and move on. Or, you could continue down your wrong-headed path and be the best fundraisers the Democratic Party ever had. By the time you’re through, the 2014 election will look like 2006.
