The GOP Is A Fake Opposition Party With No Vision For The Country

Quote
When Louisiana’s Mike Johnson was pulled from obscurity and elected House speaker last month, many conservatives were cautiously optimistic that the man with the self-professed biblical “worldview” and somewhat solid voting record would be the fighter they’ve needed to halt Democrats’ Marxist takeover of society. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long to discover that Johnson is just as weak-kneed as his Republican predecessors.

On Tuesday afternoon, Johnson and House Republicans are set to surrender to Democrats yet again on a major government spending fight. Rather than stand strong and fight for conservative priorities, Johnson is proposing a continuing resolution, or CR, to keep the federal government funded through the beginning of next year. Unsurprisingly, the proposal does nothing to address key issues plaguing the nation, such as the Biden-manufactured crisis at the U.S. southern border, and maintains already-high spending levels.

With members of the House Freedom Caucus expected to vote against the measure, Johnson will need the help of House Democrats to send the package to the Senate. Given leading House Democrats’ positive remarks about the bill, the GOP speaker is likely to get it.

Here’s a little tip for Republicans: If Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., one of the House’s most radical leftists, is praising your bill and claiming it includes “[t]wo of the big things” Democrats wanted, then chances are your bill sucks.

The GOP is a joke.

The GOP is a joke.

Which is why I haven't been a member/given a damned dime to the GO-effin'-P since Juan McLame was set up to be the sparring dummy for Mike Robinson's Li'l Bitch.

It's all a great big club, and YOU and I ain't in it.

There is one thing that is common in all of these "gotta pass another CR (just to see what's in it)" bullshit exercises.

That is, of course, the professed urgency in "getting it done, for the sake of the chill-run".

I remember well the government shutdowns in December/January 1995/96. As far as I could tell, the fate of the free world wasn't really at stake, and it certainly didn't burn to the ground over those 26 days total that the shutdowns were in effect. Nope. We all survived that. And yet the GOP gets served a big ol' shit sandwich every time a shutdown looms.

What these asshats in Congress haven't quite figured out is that the CR itself perpetuates these "crises."

No, excuse me. Of course they've figured it out. That's part of the plan.

Hey, Speaker Johnson - do you put dill pickles on your shit sandwich? Toasted rye?

George Carlin was 100% on target when he talked about the Big Club and how we ain't in it.

The biggest question is will they throw away the next election?
