…guaranteed good laughs at a party, and sure to solidify the image of traitorous republicans acting like the cowards they really are. The kids should find this to be fun also.
Excerpt from an article titled, "GOP Leadership Hammers Obama Over Policies They Support":
Some progressive House Democrats were quoted criticizing President Obama's approach to Afghanistan and Iraq on Thursday, and perhaps not surprisingly, Republicans in Congress jumped all over it.OK, there is some democratic opposition, but these ridiculous republicans:
"Folks -- just wanted to make sure you didn't miss this story in this morning's Wall Street Journal," wrote a GOP leadership aide in a morning email blast to reporters. The aide highlighted what is by far the most damning quote: Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) calling Obama's war plan "embarrassingly naïve."
It would make for a sharp political attack if it weren't for the fact that GOP leadership in the House actually supports Obama's plans. Take for example, this quote from Minority Leader John Boehner just two weeks ago:…
…"The challenge of bringing stability to Afghanistan is enormously complex, but our efforts to defeat Al Qaeda and the Taliban are vital to the security of the American people. I support the strategy the President unveiled today because it reflects the advice of our commanders on the ground. I hope he will continue to honor their counsel because we should not allow political considerations here at home to trump the importance of achieving success in the region. Moving forward, we must ensure this strategy is implemented in a manner that is both flexible and reflective of the situation on the ground, and we must aggressively monitor its progress."So it's support quietly and then go out screaming maniacally in opposition. Are the "Party of No" traitors finally awakening to the fact that Americans are no longer afraid so playing the fear card is an exercise in futility?
Or how about this one from Minority Whip Eric Cantor, who wrote in the Washington Times yesterday: "The GOP has the obligation to be the honest opposition. When we believe the president is correct -- for example, in his handling of Iraq policy -- we will stand with him."
Then there is the 2008 Republican presidential candidate, John McCain, who has endorsed the approach the administration has taken to both Iraq and Afghanistan.
Or they might have realized that the more they rail against Obama the numbers of voters who support the Obama popular agenda goes up?
It's lose-lose for republican traitors.
It's a bootifull thang, ain't it?
