They don’t just hope HE (President Obama) FAILS, they hope America fails, and they (The Republican party) are helping it happen by obstructing reform and fighting job growing legislation that will help America recover.
They hope you lose your job and go broke so that you are pissed off and miserable, and they hope this lasts until 2010 and 2012 so you can take it out on the incumbents who are in office, and when we “throw the bums out” Republicans will finally get back the political power that they crave so much.
The Republican party is sabotaging America’s recovery for political gain.
This is the new meme that we as Democrats should push in order to expose the elected Republicans for what they are, fake patriots who put politics above the best interests of their own nation.
More below the fold.
We have already seen the Republican party cheer when America lost the 2016 Olympics and boo when President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. The reason they did so is because “They hope HE FAILS”, which we already know, but why they hope President Obama fails is much more insidious than that.
By obstructing President Obama’s agenda of reform and recovery, the Republican party is sabotaging America’s recovery. The fact that America NEEDS a recovery BECAUSE of FAILed Republican policies should not be forgoteen, either.
The Republican party is working to undermine America’s recovery becauuse they know that if Obama succeeds in cleaning up their mess, they are screwed. If President Obama and the Democratic party can put American’s back to work, heal our economy, solve our energy dependance on fossil fuels and keep America safe, the Republican party will be shown as ideologically inferior. To prevent that, the Republican party is actively working to undermine America’s recovery by being the party of NO!, obstructing reform protesting the Government instead of using their power to create good government.
They can NOT and will NOT create GOOD Government, it goes against their whole political philosophy, which says that Government is always BAD and must be restricted in order to give more and more power to the private sector.
So, the Republican party hopes YOU fail. They hope YOU do not get a job, do not see any change or recovery in your life for the next 2-4 years, and they HOPE that makes you made enough to “throw the bums out”, which will lead to a Republican takeover of Washington.
The Republican party needs to be called out on this.
Because they are not just passively hoping Obama fails, or you fail or America fails, they are activlel working to ensure it by obstructing vital reforms that will bring about America’s recovery faster.
The Republicans hopes can be explained like this.
By obstructing essential reforms Republicans are hoping for and helping to ensure America’s failure in the short term. They need to be called out on this. In fact, I think that framing Republican obstruction in this way is a sure fire way to turn the electorate against them even more, and to help turn out the vote against Republicans in the next election cycle. They are religiously motivated voters, shame works on them.
So, in my opinion, we should shame the Republican party in this way.
Republican NOism is costing American’s their jobs (Economy)
Republican NOism is costing Americans their lives (Health care reform and militarily)
Republican NOism is costing American’s their life savings and businesses (Financial reform)
Republican NOism on climate change and green jobs is costing Americans in jobs and natural resources that future generations will depend on. (Economy/ Environment)
Republicans have NO PLAN on foreign policy other than bomb more/surge more = plan later (Repeat Iraq/WMD’s)
Republicans have NO plan because they hope America FAILS (in the short term, so they can blame that failure on Obama and Dems and get elected back into power)
While hunting for a job the other day and pondering the victory of Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Christ Christie over incumbent Democrat Jon Corzine, I suddenly realized the purpose behind GOP obstruction.
It is because the Republican party hopes that Obama has fixed nothing. The Republican party is betting the farm on the fact that they can only succeed if Obama fails to clean up the mess they have made in America after 30 years of Reaganomics, small government that can not get in the way of Big Business and tax cuts for the rich and economic policies that have stagnated wage groth, outsourced valuable America jobs overseas and a foreign policy that has made our allies mistrust us and weakened our power around the world.
The Republican party has spilled the milk, to put it very mildly. Now, they want to blame the spill on Obama and the Democratic party, and they want to blame him for not cleaning it up fast enough too. They do not just hope Obama fails, they hope you fail, fail to pay your bills, fail to keep your job or get a new one, fail to see any recovery or reform, so that when you go out to vote in 2010 and 2012 you will “throw the bums out”
The Republiican party has used fear and hate to mislead their die-hard voters and American’s in general about how Democratic reforms will help them. By fighting that reform tooth and nail they not only do the bidding of their special interests, to which they are totally beholden, but they are also HURTING America. The party that ran for President on Country first hopes that our country FAILS for the short term, so it will pay off for them politically in the long term.
That is why, I believe, by calling them out on this we can use a little political judo to turn the tables on the hopes of the Republiican party, which is only to regin power at any cost, and the greater the cost to America and American families, they greater the hopes for the Republican’s future electoral gains.
Call them out for it. Shame them. If there is one thing values voters understand, it is shame.
