"Our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term."
- Senator Mitch McConnell, minority leader
That's right: when Mitch McConnell isn't busy looking like an uncooked Perdue oven-roaster, he's spouting pearls of wisdom like this one at press conferences.
To be clear: that's the Repubicans' NUMBER ONE PRIORITY.
The GOP is not concerned with jobs, or the economy, or the environment, or the unjust, preemptive wars started by George W. Bush.
They do not even want to PRETEND that they will work with The President, or Democrats.
All they want is power. Plain and simple.
And yet Obama keeps trying to co-operate with these guys.
Forget it, it WILL NOT HAPPEN.
One thing is painfully, painfully clear, to anyone who can read and write their own name: the Republican Party has been bought and is owned by the rich individuals and corporations in this country.
The GOP represents their interests and ONLY their interests.
Because that's who they work for.
They do not work for the working or middle class. They do not work for the poor (why would they?). They do not work for 98% of other Americans. They are a bullying, greedy, loud-mouthed, lying, ruthless group of ideologues with absolutely no conscience whatsoever.
They will block ANYTHING that goes against the interests of the super rich.
Why pretend otherwise?
I'm not saying the Democrats are perfect.
But at least they have what resembles a conscience.
