In an interesting turn of political events, we have come to this. Tea Partyists are quickly taking up arms against Republicans that they deem not Conservative enough. Chris Christie, a governor who is brash, has been criticized and campaigned against because he responded to President Obama favorably instead of with disdain after the hurricane. Instead of rallying around a candidate like Christie, who could more than likely win the Presidency as he is a Conservative, but an open minded one, who appeals across the board.
Then to add even more to this comedy show that is becoming the Tea Party, they have now labeled Newt Gingrich a Progressive. Not only is he not Progressive, he is about as Conservative as it comes, yet because he has talked bad about the Tea Party, rightfully so at that, he is now an enemy. The Tea Party is quickly becoming cannibalistic.
I don’t have any grey area when it comes to my disdain for both parties here in the United States, but to me the GOP is the worst. No not because of their conservative ideology, I agree with some of it, but because they play the fear, religion and race card more than anyone else. After Romney took an ass kicking in the presidential election and walking human-ham hybrid Karl Rove had a literal meltdown on FOX during the results I quickly realized that the GOP had fallen in the trap set by Obama and the Democrats. It was the same thing that Rove and the Bush Republicans did in the early 2000’s to the Democrats. It’s the old, how does your own medicine taste deal. How do the Republicans like it? Not at all and they still don’t even get it.
Well since all of our politicians have their heads up their asses, we are headed over this so called fiscal cliff. Now if they wanted they could repeal the little mandatory cuts and tax increases that are in effect in the beginning of 2013 by just… you know… saying they are no longer happening. That simple. Instead we have a bathroom sword fight going on between the President and the House of Representatives. John Boehner (Boner… still funny) attempted to initiate a vote on his “Plan B” to avoid the cliff, but it failed. It failed so much in part because he couldn’t even get his own party to back it. So why? Why is Boehner looking so bad, why are Republicans again doing absolutely nothing and where is Obama in all of this?
So if you missed this video you missed political comedian (he is less funny than Dane Cook) Steven Crowder getting decked by a Union member during a protest of the Michigan right-to-work bill being passed. Crowder then went directly back to his mommy (FOX) to complain about getting socked in the face.
“I literally believe, Sean [Hannity], that if I had defended myself at all, even flicked a small little jab, that they would have killed me…”
I literally agree with him, but is it the union man’s fault that you got in the way and pissed them off in order to save people in a tent who were being just as vulgar and vicious? No.
The American political custerf–k is finally… almost over. All we have heard is ads, ads ,ads ,ads and more ads. Why Obama hates America and Jesus and white people, why Romney will destroy small business, unions and Paul Ryan rapes Medicare and Social Security. We all have had to deal with these stupid (and generally false) ad campaigns.
There is no “War on Religion” it’s a war on Civil Rights
The GOP has taken the religious aspect hammer to the proverbial nail, and using their atypical scare tactics that honestly, educated people laugh at. They make you think that Obama doesn’t just want abortions and lots of them, but he wants to perform them all during a second term in office. I love how during a tough time in America with economic turmoil, getting out of war as best we can and attempting to get over a recent hurricane (yes, global warming is real) the real issue is contraception and restricting the rights of a woman to do with her body as she pleases. This is the same political group that bitches and complains about big government intervention and how it should be regulated to the states to decide, yet they want to put into law that abortion is illegal and that sex is the worst thing ever in the history of man.
Both parties truly epically suck beyond reason and we all should believe this for good measure.
Joe Biden and Paul Ryan had their debate last night and it showed 2 major things to come of this. Paul Ryan is an absolute rookie and a rough half-ass debater at best. He was caught on several occasions dodging the questions asked by Martha Raddatz and also flipped his views on things several times over. Ryan looked like someone who stuck to his script, never deviating to answer questions that were asked. It showed that the partisan politics currently used by the Rovian GOP is difficult to push still. It is a vague and unsatisfying political move, one that kept George W. Bush within power in 2004.
On the other hand, Joe Biden startled even me. Biden came out fiery and factually. He gave numbers, he interrupted Paul Ryan (to the dismay of the right wing pundits who just last week LOVED Romney doing the exact same thing), and he questioned his facts/policies often. Biden dominated the debate and I find it funny that the pundits are now trying to find any scraps to hold upon to preserve that Ryan “won” by saying it was a tie. There was no tie, it was a full on verbal ass-whooping laid out by Biden on a raw piece of GOP meat, like it or not, Paul Ryan really sucked last night.
