Jibberish: The Tea Party's Spin Machine
To say that Speaker Boehner is effective as the leader of the US House of Representatives is like calling a gunshot wound at point blank range right between the eyes with a .357 a simple flesh wound. It's utterly ridiculous, because all he is doing is placating the public only to satisfy the Tea Party wing of the GOP.
The GOP's main objective since January 2009 has been to obstruct the Obama Administration's policies just on general principle, not because they might be right for America, have been wrong or unconstitutional in any way. But purely out of spite for the man or more so for the sins of his father.
In a way I think the GOP / Tea Party Members are not only pissed off at Obama for getting elected to the highest office in America, twice I might add in case you've been in a catatonic state or medically induced coma for the last six years. But that he's managed to take a republican based idea that was working in one state in America, and modeled it into the Affordable Care Act a.k.a. Obamacare before a duly Elected Republican President could do it
Not only that. but that he has managing to have positive accomplishments despite their efforts to block him at every turn. He's ended US involvement in both Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, saved our economy from another great economic depression by bailing out the big banks & the US Auto Industry that started under a Republican President,. Yet not one of the Banking or Auto executives that caused the economic downturn has ever seen the inside of a courtroom let alone get criminal convictions. I wonder whom do they have to thank for that. I'll give everyone two guesses, but they'll only need one. A GOP influenced or led US Congress.
The Tea Party Brand
The GOP's idea of good governance is to sue President Obama over his using an Executive Order to do the very thing that they the GOP wanted in the first place. The problem is not the government, it's that the Haves don't have enough and the Have-Nots have too much! And with Citizen United they want to get much more.
To say that some Tea Party Members aren't puppets of powerful Special Interests Groups funded by the likes of the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelsons of the world, would be like saying that water isn't wet or the Mohave Desert is a thriving city. In both cases it's utterly preposterous, their primary goal is to the opposite of Robin Hood.
To take from the least fortunate and give to back to the rich in exchange for their individual political survival. All the while distracting the public from the truth of the matter, to vote against their own best interests. To use misinformation in order to line the very pockets of the people stealing the prosperity of a once thriving middle class in America.
