Because they sell out the base while rolling over for the Democrats
. Because they are, at heart, Democrats, who only mouth conservative platitudes in order to get elected, while returning to their native state once they get to D.C.
Sadly, President Bush’s passing provided Republicans with the perfect subterfuge with which to sell us out, even though they were already looking for an avenue to cave. They are planning to pass a two-week continuing resolution that will expire right before Christmas on December 21, knowing full well there will be no appetite for a border fight right before everyone leaves town for the holiday.
There is no reason we can’t deal with the ultimate government shutdown – the suspension of law and order at our border – while we hold a funeral for President Bush. Republicans know this as well as we do, but they never had any intention of fighting.
If all we're going to get out of the House is Democrat bills, then it should be the Democrats pushing them, eh?
And speaking of priorities, while our immigration priorities are not in the bill, the priorities of cheap labor will eventually be in the omnibus. Congress plans to double the number of H-2B non-agricultural, unskilled seasonal workers that will continue to be a public charge on America. Also, even before legislators pass the omnibus prior to Christmas, they are slipping in extensions of the flood insurance programs and the Violence Against Woman Act (VAWA) even in the two-week stopgap bill.
Evidently, we can afford to go without border security but we can’t have any lapse in this broken flood insurance program or a special-interest program that uses an important issue to subvert due process.
Paul Ryan was such an utter, feckless failure that I really can't properly describe him in the English language. Someone recently suggested that there ought to be another layer of hell in Dante's Inferno, for the people who are not only traitors but nation-wreckers. I agree. I say that you make the 10th circle of hell the area where Satan shits out the traitors that he's chewed upon; the shat-out traitors spend all of eternity trying to crawl back up Satan's ass to escape the hell, but they keep getting pushed down by more nation-wrecking traitors getting shat out, as well as being pulled back down by their companions, much as they pulled down the good, hard-working Americans with their Marxist idiocy, backstabbing, and lies. Paul Ryan needs to be the first one shat out, followed by John Boehner, although Boehner is no longer infecting the GOP actively. He's like shingles; caused by a virus that lays dormant until the wrong time, when it pops out and causes massive pain.
Sadly, it appears that the House will pass a new stopgap bill on Thursday without a recorded vote, so the public won’t even be treated to a debate. What a sad way to end an eight-year run of GOP House control.
I think it's the perfect way to end the eight year GOP run - gutless pathetic fucking backstabbers flipping the bird to their voting base one last time.
Fuck the GOP establishment. Fuck them all to hell.
