Many on the right aren’t interested in doing much to help the average citizen. The tea party groups are all about seeking revenge against America for rejecting them in 2006 and 2008 at the ballot box. None of them have offered any viable solution(s) to any problem(s) we are dealing with.
They have invested a huge amount of time in portraying President Obama as “dangerous,” “out of touch with regular Americans,” “wanting the government to takeover the economy/healthcare,” “a Muslim,” “a terrorist”, “anti-capitalist,” “a Marxist”, “a socialist,” “a communist,” “Hitler in disguise,” etc., none of these descriptions are true. Many of their supporters have no idea that much of what the president has done and/or wants to accomplish were at one time embraced by the GOP. Reagan raised taxes, Reagan wanted a national healthcare system, Romney’s healthcare plan for MA has a mandate, Senator Isakson (R-GA) wrote a law allowing patients to make end of life decisions, George W. Bush wanted to work on immigration reform, Senator Lisa Murkowski supported climate change legislation, etc., but none of the republicans will own up to these things now. The GOP and their corporate cronies are doing a number on their supporters and are spending millions of dollars to make them believe something about President Obama that bears no resemblance to reality.
I’ve never seen a group of individuals as gullible as those who will vote for republicans who caused the problems we’re dealing with in the first place. As much as the republicans try to distance themselves from the atrocious policies of GWB, there are many of us who know and remember the source of our problems. Whatever the republican supporters think the GOP can deliver to them should they become the majority party in Congress after November 2, I would advise them not to hold their breaths waiting on it. If they didn’t get it for the 8 years that GWB was in the WH, there’s no need to expect the party to deliver on its promises at this point. Screaming about tax cuts and deregulation as the solutions to economic recovery when they have been proven ineffective makes anyone who continues to buy into this BS extremely delusional.
s one who lived the first 18 years of my life under segregation, I know that the real problem the GOP has with President Obama is with their belief that an African American is not the correct symbol for the most powerful nation on Planet Earth. Of course, they’ll deny this as they’ve been doing since January 20, 2009 at 12 Noon, but it carries no weight with me because I’ve watched them play every race card in their playbook over the past 20 months and then project the blame for a divided America onto a president who doesn’t even discuss race unless he’s asked a specific question by a member of the MSM. This began as a hatchet job and has remained a hatchet job intended to teach an enduring lesson that no African American, atheist, gay, lesbian, Hispanic, etc., can ever be as successful as POTUS as some white men have been.
