“I told you guys the Senate GOP would screw us over on DHS funding, but even I had no idea Mitch McConnell would capitulate so easily. I assumed he’d do a major song and dance first, but instead he just went all Ned Beatty in Deliverance the moment Barack Obama looked at him funny.” — Eunuch Mitch McConnell Squeals Like a Pig
“This is a total victory for the Obama position,” said a GOP senator unhappy with McConnell’s plan
“Counterfeiters use the reputation of a trademark, which brand manufacturers have built up on the basis of the quality of their products, to fool consumers about the true origin and quality of the goods.” — Wikipedia
Last November, Americans voted out the turkeys. The noxious policies of Obama and the
Socialists Democrats were given the old heave-ho, like holiday giblets gone gamy. The Grand Old Party was handed both houses of Congress in the kind of landslide victory seen about as often as Halley’s Comet. Rejoicing was heard throughout the land — at least, that part of the land which still subscribed to old fashioned notions like the rule of law. Little did we realize that we’d voted in counterfeits, cheap knock-offs that looked good in the display case, but fell apart once they got in the rain.
Two months in, and the GOP has retreated more often than the Royal Italian Army. If these are the mutts we’re looking to for salvation, it’s time to head for the shelters. Republicans under the direction of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner have surrendered to the Democrats on every issue, from immigration to net neutrality. They’ve rubber-stamped Obama’s new attorney-general nominee, Eric Holder Light. If we don’t need a new army, we sure as hell need some new generals to run the old one.
After going to the Senate floor and slamming Obama’s executive amnesty in November, McConnell hoisted the white flag of surrender … Obama attacked the time-honored American tradition of separation of powers with his executive amnesty and for that reason alone, House Speaker John Boehner and Mitch McConnell should’ve gone to the mat and done everything necessary in their power to overturn it. However, the GOP leadership and “establishment” don’t really want to change how Washington works. There’s something wrong with a party that can be frightened with just a dirty look into not shutting what is one of the most useless departments of the Federal government and at the same time, claims to be for Constitutional and limited government. This is why the American people and conservatives are angry at them and don’t trust them. (After The Latest Mitch McConnell Surrender, Why Should Conservatives Even Bother Supporting Republicans)
People love to hear themselves talk, particularly if they have nothing to say. In fact, the less they have to say, the more often they tend to say it. This is true of most people, but most especially those incorrigible swindlers that a negligent electorate unaccountably installs into the seats of power. Anyone announcing a desire to run for office should be immediately disqualified from doing so. The 114th United States Congress proves the point.
