- Hatch Admits Hypocrisy: "A Lot of Things Weren't Paid For" When Republicans Ran Congress During Bush Years
Tuesday, January 19, 2010
There has been enough brainwash and outright lies from the right-wing to perhaps sway some people away from the left at this point. It's hard for me to fathom that anyone would want a Republican in an office held for decades by a Democrat in one form or another, much less allowing right-wing policies that are proven failures into the mix.
I understand people are frustrated by the lack of jobs and the enormous amounts of money being thrown at various social issues. The fractured healthcare system, as it limps along, is not much help, either.
However, those same people seem to have forgotten that the current troubles originated with the Bush regime and have little to do with President Obama. Our current President was stuck with the mistakes and poor governing of the previous administration, and yet in the one year he has held office he has devoted his energies to fixing the serious problems afflicting the United States.
The quandary is he cannot fix all of the massive and complicated issues overnight. No one could. Unraveling eight years of failed policies will probably take his entire term as President, and then some.
Here's a bit of history on the Massachusetts Republican candidate from Think Progress:
- Brown stands by supporting a tax-subsidized golf course over 9/11 rescue workers
- Scott Brown Denies Asserting That Obama Was Born Out Of Wedlock, Refuses To Apologize
- Brown supporters trying to suppress vote by bullying
If the people of Massachusetts vote a Republican into the US Senate, the issues and problems will only become muddied by venomous rhetoric and non-action. The right-wing record stands on its own: the Party of No will continue to block progress, not caring one whit for the welfare of the American people but rather in furthering their own political agendas.

The right-wing bats are out in full force. How can anyone in their right mind assume an entire country deserves ruination and death for any reason?

Any sort of "message" to be derived from the twisted exhibit is that certain echelons of people in certain parts of the nation give credence to the common perception about them: toothpick-chewing country bumpkins who have no sense of human decency and who are easily led by the wide array of right-wing nuts surrounding them.
And yet they still wonder why the mainstream population never takes them seriously.
