Washington Post: We Aren’t Rabid Partisans, But These House Republicans Are Big Meanies
There’s all sorts of fun bomb throwing materializing in the mostly Liberal media, both from journalists/opinion writers and nutty Democrats. You have wacky Joan Walsh blaming it all on raaaaacism. Crazy Alan Grayson says the GOP has literally been drinking on the job. Womb Whisperer Andy Sullivan talks about the “nullification party“. Ezra Klein wonders why the GOP doesn’t ditch the hard right. The vast majority of articles and opinion pieces are, unsurprisingly, anti-GOP, being that the major media votes 90% Democrat. Just a peak at the Washington Post front page provides mostly anti-GOP pieces, including “House GOP cuckoos.” But the Editorial Board brings the best moonbattery:
AMERICANS’ RESPECT for their Congress has, sad to say, diminished in recent years. But citizens still expect a minimal level of competence and responsibility: Pay the bills and try not to embarrass us in front of the world.
By those minimal standards, this Congress is failing. More specifically, the Republican leaders of the House of Representatives are failing. They should fulfill their basic duties to the American people or make way for legislators who will.
We don’t come to that view as rabid partisans. On many of the issues stalemating Washington, we find plenty of blame to go around. We’ve criticized President Obama’s reluctance to pursue entitlement reform. The last time the country reached the debt ceiling, we urged both sides to compromise on revenue and spending in the interest of long-term fiscal soundness.
You’re welcome to read the rest of this, it’s quite amusing in its partisan view. It fails to mention that the Democrat controlled Senate has failed to pass a budget since Obama took the oath of office. Didn’t they promise to pass a budget this year during the previous budget debt ceiling negotiations. All we’ve had are continuing resolutions since they refuse to put their budget priorities on the table.
Every budget Mr. Obama has placed on the table has been utterly shot down by the Democrat controlled Senate. Except for this year’s. Which was very late. As usual. And which Harry Reid simply tabled without a vote.
As for embarrassing us in front of the world, one only has to look to the recent Syria debacle. The best he could do was cobble together a coalition of…France. Which was backing away from getting involved. And it took Vladimir Putin to save Obama’s chestnuts. He started out with gaffes involving sending a Churchill bust back to the U.K., insulting the British Press, the foolish “reset” button to Russia, and giving the Queen Of England an iPod with pics and vids of….Obama. He left our people to die in Benghazi. He ran guns into Mexico without telling the government of Mexico, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of Mexican citizens. Trotted out “starting with 1967 lines” regarding Israel-Palestinian negotiations. Blew off NATO ally Poland over the missile shield. Blew off the Iranian Green Revolution, as well as most of the Arab Spring. Til he threw Egypt’s leader Hosni Mubarak under the bus, leading to the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood. His Sec of State Hillary Clinton called Assad a “reformer”. Now Obama wants him gone. And Assad is thumbing his nose at Obama.
That list can go on and on, I’m sure you have your favorite blunder/gaffe/embarrassment. Fortunately, Obama’s NSA will be there to read your criticisms of Obama. Have fun with your IRS audit.
