Republicans are Assholes, Aren't they?

Here's something I read on a blogspot with the same name, "Republican's are Assholes". I could NEVER say this better than...

A message to Republican and Tea Party Assholes (repost from Nov 2010)
From HB&HM

You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq .

You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us. You didn't get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn't get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq .

You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn't get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.

You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when Bush rang up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn't get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans drown.

You didn't get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could spend, the filthy rich, over a trillion dollars in taxbreaks. You didn't get mad with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.

You didn't get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance.

You didn't get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values.

No.....You finally got mad

When a black man was elected President and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick.

Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929 are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick...Oh, Hell No!!

4. They'll have more access to one

than they did under the "old" system. There's a lot more to be done for sure but to pretend that the law won't do anything to help more people gain access to our healthcare system is inaccurate and dishonest IMHO not to mention the fact that the law is based on the principle that everybody should be able to have access.

20. Why don't you try popping your head out?

Yes we will, now that once again Obama and the Dems kicked the Repugnicans butts, in November.

3. Yeah, that was Walldude...

Maybe he posted on the site I visited.

True that then and now. Plus, there's a great Bush monkey face within that thread.

7. Probably not.

 

Walldude's post went viral and without attribution most places. It was everywhere for a while.

6. They didn't get mad when the president totally overstepped his boundaries to save one person...

...Who we knew at the time was probably going to die anyways yet they went out of their way to make sure they provided the best health care possible.

They didn't get mad when greedy CEOs partied hard in Greece while their company went under.

They didn't get mad when a televangelist who had ties to the Bush was caught snorting crystal meth and courting gay hookers.

They didn't get mad when CEOs robbed us of our pensions and livelyhood and haven't been punished.

8. Surely, that didn't get mad about that one...

"The didn't get mad when CEOs robbed us of our pensions and livelihood and haven't been punished."

In fact, it makes them kind of happy to continue to ignore OWS ... I wonder what the next few years portends for these really happy fellows?

11. It's true, rethuglicans are indeed assholes.




They called themselves "compassionate conservatives" while an entire region and its people were destroyed.
It was obvious they were anything but while they were pointing fingers and making up lies.

14. Not all assholes are Republicans, but all Republicans are assholes.

It's the basic, if not only, requirement to wear the label. Republican is nothing more than a four syllable word for asshole.

15. Harry Truman on republicans...

“Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home--but not for housing. They are strong for labor--but they are stronger for restricting labor's rights. They favor minimum wage--the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all--but they won't spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine--for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing--but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it.”

19. What a reality check for Partisan Assholery!

Somewhere between Truman- maybe Lincoln... Somewhere between THERE and HERE, some R's tried to steer it away to serve as a party.

It never comes back from what Truman said!
