Republicans Suggest Obama Be Denied Use of Air Force One
Okay, so we know the GOP hates … hates … President Obama. I mean, back in 2009, when the man had barely been in office a hot minute, the Grand Old Turtle of the GOP, Mitch McConnell, popped his head outta his shell and said the Republican’s sole job over the next four years would be to make sure Obama was a one-term President; and we all know how that worked out.
And then this past election cycle they campaigned on anti-Obama sentiment and not on what they had been doing for the country the last four years … uh, because that’s a big fat nothing. They have done nothing and yet because they were able to make it all seem to be Obama’s fault, they took control of Congress; for doing nothing.
Still, they hate him; they hate him so much they’ve lost their mother-effing minds, and are now trying to systematically dismantle the office of the President, or at least the President’s powers. That is, until a rich old white guy gets back into office and then everything will be turned back around.
Until then, listen to this: last week, the GOP goose-stepping asshatted Congressman from Georgia, Paul Broun called on Weeper, er, Speaker of the House John Boehner to not invite Obama to deliver the State of the Union address next year.
But, not to be outdone by his feeble-minded party cohort, Tim Huelskamp, the goose-stepping asshatted Congressman from Kansas, suggested that the budgets for White House operations, including the President’s use of Air Force One, be decreased. Of course, Huelskamp is also a fan of not inviting Obama to give his State of the Union address because, well, George Washington never gave one in person; he had it delivered to Congress.
Then, not to be outshone in the asshat department, Texas’ newly-elected GOP goose-stepping asshatted governor, Greg Abbott, announced this week that he plans to sue Obama on behalf of his state. That’s job one on Abbott’s first day in office; not jobs, not the budget, not environment ... but suing the president because, well, you know.
Insane, I know, but there’s more; let’s talk about the bigoted, and homophobic and anti-LGBT GOP.
The House Rules Committee of the 113th Congress — nine Republicans and four Democrats — is the group that decides which bills make it to the House floor for a vote, and last week, by a 7-3 vote, the committee killed ENDA.
And those seven committee members, elected by us — well, by some of us — to work for us, and to do the things we want them to do, killed ENDA even though 73% of Americans support the idea that firing someone just because they’re an L, G,B, or T is not right.
Three-quarters of We the People wanted this law passed and seven Republicans said No. And those seven bigots are down there, left to right, top to bottom, meet Reps. Michael Burgess, Pete Sessions, Tom Cole, Virginia Foxx, Richard Nugent, Daniel Webster, and Rob Woodall.
That’s you GOP folks; and that’s your Congress for the next two years. They have put forward no plans for anything other than trying to hurt the president, other than trying to hurt the LGBT community, other than stomping their feet and suggesting another government shutdown over Obama’s immigration plan.
Yes, another $24,000,000,000 shutdown that We the People will pay for because the GOP, and its Teabagger minions, don’t like a Black man in a White House.
