Gridlock: The Republican's Obstructionists Doctrine
Purely backwards thinking within the GOP
The Faces of Discontent
Spite filled GOP who want their way, period!
In theory this artwork and caption should be worth a minimum of a thousand words, but it can done with far fewer words to explain the humor of it. Due to the nature of the point that it's trying to make, it really is a serious problem that shouldn't really exist in this day and age.
To those of us that are actually paying attention to the world outside, I've noticed the similar behavioral characteristic of the Tea Party Republican and small spiteful children who misbehaved when they didn't get their way. The tend to be unruly and hard to deal with unless the parent laid down the rules and then they knew just how much they could push their luck before they were disciplined. The difference being these are fully grown and well educated adults, that know right from wrong for the most part, but they act of spite just the same.
Case in point is the nonsensical talk of impeaching a sitting US President or the threat of impeachment, because they won't work with him to try and solve the problems facing our country. And of course this whinny school boy mentality when it comes to doing the job they were elected to do, because they don't like President Obama or his Administration. They, the House GOP, namely John Boehner that refuses to bring certain issues (i.e. equal pay for women, raising the minimum wage, etc.) to the floor of the House for a vote because it's the right thing to do.
But they can't handle the fact that they've lost two Presidential Election to a guy they simple don't want to see succeed and take his place in History as having accomplish something that's for the betterment of society as a whole. Plus they've been proven to be wrong on the issues more often that they care to admit. They've ginned up would be scandals one after another, only to fall short of denigrating or tarnishing his Presidential Legacy.
Primarily because he's beaten them at their own game of political gamesmanship, by succeeding with ideas that they once supported before he supported them. Mainly, the Affordable Care Act, they utterly hate the law not because it works. But because it was a GOP idea that was crafted from the Massachusetts's model that was put in place by the then Republican Governor.
The House GOP will do well to remember this fact, elections do have consequences come November!
