The Character of Congressional Republicans
John Boehner, the leader of Senate Republicans, referred to President Obama's payroll tax cut proposal as "chicken shit."
At first this surprised me, as tax cuts have been a major part of the Republican agenda. But my surprise went away when I realized that these people do not have any agenda except this: To destroy everything that comes from President Obama, even if it's their own proposals. They want to do everything that they can to make Obama fail, so that they can then have the White House. This includes going against the proposals that they have made themselves.
Which brings me to a point that has not been adequately discussed: What is the character of congressional Republicans? It is obvious that their character is that of treacherous conmen who would tell people any lie to get into power and then tell people another lie when they go against the things that they have advocated themselves.
These people have some nerve claiming that they have values or that they speak for American values. They do not have values. They are a pack of conmen.
And American people deserve better representation than is afforded by these conmen.
