How far the Grand Old Party has Fallen

The following article was submitted by New NY 23rd reader Deb Meeker.

As the President of the United States and his Administration continues to deal with –

Abroad:

*ISIS created crisis in Iraq and Syria

*the Palestinian and Israeli conflict

*Russia’s continued attempt to take over Ukraine

*North Korea’s constant threat of nuclear advancement

State-side:

* The humanitarian crisis of Central American children coming to the US by the thousands

* The US infrastructure rapidly deteriorating

* US banks and corporations continually denying their responsibility to the American people

* Failures of decades of underfunding and manning the VA,

* the rapid growth of home grown terrorists groups

* millions of Americans without money to live on through no fault of their own

* the rabid hatred of many in the right’s base and GOP leadership of having a Black man in the White House

* the most obstructive and immature Congress in the history of the United States

 

Sueing The Prez (Fox)With all of these, and many, many other issues bearing down on President Barack Obama, what does the Grand Old Party believe is most important to accomplish during a war time?

To “sue” the President, for giving the , American people, an opportunity to have healthier lives, and attempt, against all odds – to solve some of the above situations.

    Regarding the “boarder crisis,” Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) said: “I think by doing something, all we’re doing is taking Obama’s nightmare for ourselves.” Rather than working with the President to promote the general welfare, Congress seeks only political advantage.

    The GOP has worked very hard at trying to discourage the American people from believing in government. On one hand they spout patriotism and democracy, on the other hand they do everything they can to undermine democracy. What a sad group of do nothings they have become. They have done everything possible to undermine the public trust.Don’t fall for. Good government is possible, just not while the GOP has political power.

    A “reason” that was floated for their suit against the President, was to hold off that part of their base that is screaming for impeachment. Knowing impeachment would most likely be a dead end avenue, and further expose Republican hypocrisy – they opted for a lawsuit with even less merit.
