President Obama Embarrasses Republicans
One thing this government shutdown has clearly proven is that Republicans have simply lost their minds. Looking at the “logic” many of these people are using, I often feel like they simply don’t understand the English language—or reality for that matter.
I’m simply fed up with these right-wing antics, holding our government hostage for their own partisan agendas. And it’s not just me — a large majority of Americans don’t agree with their decision to shut down the government over “Obamacare.” The fact of the matter is the American people had their chance to “reject Obamacare,” as Republicans claim they’re doing, last November. Instead they overwhelmingly re-elected President Obama and gave more power to Democrats in both the House and the Senate.
It appears President Obama has had more than enough of this right-wing insanity as well. He called much of it out in a speech yesterday morning at a construction company in Maryland, dishing the facts and destroying the ridiculous Republican talking points we’ve been subjected to these last few days. He also pointed specifically to a couple of the more asinine comments that have been made by some of those who are behind this government shutdown.
