The GOP … purveyors of Shock and Ahhh Shucks!!!!
Today, Barack Obama formally threw down the gauntlet of his declared bid for Presidency in 2012. In the face of this man’s feckless performance as U.S. President–failed promises, political thuggery, disregard for the Constitution, outright disingenuousness, and chutzpah and hubris, the likes of which would shame the Devil–can the GOP muster a campaign capable of defeating this political Anti-Christ, or has the GOP become too feckless, itself, to withstand the witchery of Obama’s Bellway nightriders? Unfortunately and if the past is any indication, while Obama summons Pazuzu and the other doers of his bidding, the GOP will suffice at leaving their thumbs stuck in dark, putrid places. Meanwhile, they will continue to hawk sound-bites that fall flat only a few strides from the Capitol steps, convinced that the repetition of facts and figures can withstand the broadsiding from demogogued claims and assertions from the Obama marketing Juggernaut.
Clearly, this is a game of spades, wherein “the party of White Men” is all [smelly] thumbs.
Republicans are the party of old, rich White Men who prefer living in the past to the novelty of progressive advancement. Whether you agree with that very biased over simplification of the GOP or not, and no matter the degrees to which denial is attempted or the extent to which it is ignored by Republicans, it has become the mantra of the Liberal Left in its unapologetic attempts at vilifying the opposition . . .
