You have to love the Republicans as they continue to demonstrate a complete break with reality and to lie in the very face of the American people. I think it’s important to remind the GOP, the party of FAIL, that bipartisanship does not mean that the current Administration has to concede to your prescription for recovery. Frankly, not a single one of you has the authority to speak on fixing the economy that your President allowed to break. It was under W.’s watch that the American economy is in the toilet as well as that of the rest of the world. How can you actually say with a straight face that you know better when you failed to know better for the last eight years.
Lest your conservatives forget, your party was guilty of so many wrongs during the G.W. Bush era, not the least of which was disregarding the Democratic party on virtually every crucial issue faced. The GOP is the least likely to own the “bipartisan” label and it’s disingenuous to suggest otherwise. Face it, Republicans, you dropped the ball and now you’re crying sour grapes because you’ve been relegated to the sidelines.
As has been stated time and again (including in this blog): if your sole intent is to see the President fail, you want the country to fail. And if you want the country to fail, you are committing what is tantamount to treason. So, Grand Old Party, why don’t you do the right thing for once and get behind the man in the White House even if you don’t subscribe to his politics. The economic recovery is not a political issue – it’s a matter of our collective survival. You just better pray that Obama and his team can save us from a crisis you and your President caused.
