The temptation for Republican-voting schmucks is to blame high taxes and all else screwed up about this economy on the feckless and incompetent ideologue currently occupying the White House. However, I place the blame squarely on the Republicans and their absolute cowardly caving in to the Democrats on fiscal matters, well for just about every other matter as well.
Just this morning on WMAL, they played a quote by Mitt Romney saying that there’s probably some big surprise in Donald Trump’s tax returns, which is why he hasn’t released them. Mitt Romney said this? Really? The same Romney who was the subject of a nasty attack by the loathsome Harry Reid over Romney’s taxes, attacks Trump on the same thing? Reid admitted that the tactic was pure sleaze politics. “He didn’t win did he?” Reid reportedly said.
Why Romney didn’t attack Obama with the same enthusiasm that he attacked his fellow Republicans is a mystery to me, and all but explains the reason why voters, Republican voters, are rejecting GOP candidates by the droves in favor of a decidedly non-conservative, non-Republican. We’re sick of the GOP and being played for suckers.
We put them in charge of Congress and they deliver absolutely nothing. They almost granted amnesty to illegal aliens and absolutely refused to defund the ghoulish Planned Parenthood, which makes money auctioning baby parts to the highest bidder. Incredible. Absolutely incredible. Mitch McDonnell gave away the power of the purse and surrendered preemptively over the budget, and House wonder boy Paul Ryan bent over, grabbed his ankles and let Obama have everything he wanted.
Here’s a blog post I read this morning (Dear Establishment, I blame you) which, while a bit crude, pretty much sums up my feeling about the Republican Party.
You ignored the calls of the grassroots to change. You’ve tried to foist your “moderate” picks on the people… first McCain (it was his turn, after all!)… then Mittens (the guy who lost to the guy who lost to Bush in 2000, and then proceeded to lose to Obama in 2012)… and then the Third Coming of Bush. And now that the more than $100 million you wasted on that guy has swirled the drain, you’re trying to promote a Rubio/Kasich ticket? Are you fucking high? Are you stupid? Do you not get the message?
Republican voters don’t want a compromiser. They don’t want a flip-flopper. They don’t want the usual establishment liars. And they certainly don’t want someone who doesn’t listen to the grassroots on issues such as illegal immigration, and has voted for the Clinton “assault” weapons ban, while giving lip service to the Second Amendment. In a poll conducted by the Zelman Partisans recently, 20 percent and 22.6 percent of respondents found Rubio and Kasich respectively to be the biggest threats to our Second Amendment rights. Now, it’s a small sampling of respondents, but it’s indicative of something – something not good.
And yet, you don’t listen. And now that your Clown Prince has been dethroned, you’re trying to toss yet another establishment RINO in the pool to see if that turd will float, and you’re wondering why the grassroots are so pissed off that they will vote for a lying, self-absorbed jackass, who has a history of throwing money at exactly the type of leftists you claim to despise and in his own words has supported every single big government thing you claim to oppose!
I’m so sick of them that even though I think Trump is an idiot, I’ll probably vote for him just to flush the GOP down the toilet of history.
