Congressional Republicans on Sunday predicted a doomsday scenario of crushing debt and eventual federal bankruptcy if President Barack Obama’s massive spending blueprint wins passage.
Let’s see the “doomsday scenario,” which Republicans fear in a few years, is crushing debt and federal bankruptcy.
Hmm… …Wait a sec… …Oh.My.God… Doomsday is here already!!!
GOP lawmakers: Bankrupt US, weak dollar await country if Congress approves Obama’s budget.
Lessee, Bankrupt US – check. Weak dollar – check. if Congress approves Obama’s budget.
Hmm… …wait a sec…
Sen. Richard Shelby of Alabama, the top Republican on the banking committee, said Obama would have to scale back his budget, given a Congressional Budget Office report Friday that the president’s budget would produce $9.3 trillion in deficits over the next decade – more than four times the deficits of Republican George W. Bush’s presidency.
Shelby predicted that number could reach $20 trillion in coming years as Obama guides the country to “the fast road to financial destruction.”
The Fast Road to Financial Destruction…Hmm…
The future could be so bad if we follow the Democrats.
Not like with Republicans. Nosiree. Republicans are good. No massive public debt with Republicans. No devalued currency with Republicans. The air, water, soil is so much nicer with Republicans. Peace always breaks out whenever Republicans are around.
If only once, just once, we could do it the Republican way: smaller government, lower taxes, elimination of waste and fraud, stronger defense and, you know, God.
Hmm… …wait a sec… …I know I’m an obese couch potato with ‘daddy’ issues, but didn’t we try it the Republican way before? Twice? Three times? Reagan/Reagan/Bush/Bush/Bush.
I shouldn’t smoke all that medicinal pot, but isn’t the Republican Way – admittedly with the connivance of many “conservative” Democrats or DINOs – the same way which drove us down the leisurely road to financial destruction and OFF THE FUCKING CLIFF?
Following the advice of Republicans is following the advice of Satan when he says Hell doesn’t need air conditioning.
Now, I don’t know if what the Obama Team is doing is going to work to stabilize and restart our system. I have my well-documented doubts.
But I sure as hell know the effect of anything the Republicans recommend, based upon their track record of unfettered, dismal failure, is BOUND TO END IN DOOM.
Why can’t we declare Republicans insane, based upon the classic definition, commit them as whole and get on with it – maybe not perfectly but with much less aggravation. I ain’t worried about Iran’s Republican Guard but America’s Republican Party as the largest purveyor of terrorism in the world.
If there is one thing Republicans have proved time and again is their animus toward our inalienable rights.
Because we live in the age of Obama which strives for civility and cooperation, we can’t knock Republicans over the head with a caveman club, drag them to the border and exile them until their compassion gene switches on. But we can at every opportunity, whenever we hear a Republican even begin to utter any word whatsoever, as civilly and cooperatively as we can, shout at the top of our lungs:
