Republicans Playing Desperate Games Are Traitors to Americans

Why are Republicans so desperate to destroy our country! instead of trying to find ways to help our people they are hell bent on making sure they have absolutely nothing good to say about the President. Or even worse, they do not come up with viable alternatives to the administrations actions. They just whine, complain and call people names. Recently I have been encouraged by what the younger Republicans like Megan McCain have been saying, maybe there is hope for them after all.

Republicans continue to play games, calling President Obama a “socialist,” a “communist” and/or a “Marxist.”  Republican Secretary of Transportation, Ray LaHood, was so unhappy with his party’s desperate games that he lashed out at them yesterday in an interview with the Huffington Post.  Secretary LaHood “ scoffed at the recent talking points emanating from the congressional leaders of his own party. His voice rising at times with emotion, the transportation czar tackled first the notion that the president was a socialist in disguise.”

“I don’t agree with it,” LaHood said. “If you go out and interview these people working on this road in Maryland… these people are thrilled. They are thrilled that they are working in March on a good paying job building roads, which is what they were trained to do. That’s going to be happening all over America. So the idea that this is socialism — it is not socialism, it is economic development. It is going to provide an economic engine around communities all over American for jobs; good paying jobs; and help people pay their bills. I don’t call that socialism…. We are the model for the world when it comes to infrastructure. We are the model for the interstate system. I don’t call that socialism. Our $40 billion [for the Department of Transportation]: not socialism. It is good paying jobs that is going to drive the economies in a lot of states and a lot of communities.”

A large proportion of the American public agree with Secretary LaHood and President Obama on the stimulus spending and the government’s efforts to save our country’s failing financial institutions.  President Obama recently accurately pointed out to the New York Times when asked whether the was a socialist that “…it wasn’t under me that we started buying a bunch of shares of banks.”  Now Republicans have gone so far as to call the “recession” the Obama recession, notwithstanding the fact that the recession started well before Barack Obama assumed office and the near total collapse of the United States’ financial institutions occurred during George Bush’s watch.  Americans are too smart to fall for this ridiculous attempt at revisionist history.

  1. Kudos to Secretary LaHood. He is a good example of what is needed at this time in our history. Sure is a breath of fresh air among the stench of the whining, name-calling masses that appear to make up the majority of the current GOP membership!

  2. Since when is Meghan McCain a Republican? If anything, she is just a RINO, and RINO’s do more bad than good.
