Marco Rubio, the Cuban Catholic Creationist Savior (the last Savior was a Middle Eastern Orthodox Jew) has returned from his long creationist’s sojourn to lead the floundering TeaPublican Party (formerly known as the Republican Party) out of their desert of comfortable ignorance into the muddy waters of disingenuously pretending to be human.
Last night Americans were treated to the continuing saga of TeaPublican Charades. This game is about the stunning regurgitation of familiar TeaPublican lies and fictitious, fallacious empty rhetoric – rhetoric which only the Teapublicans believe. However, they are never embarrassed no matter how awful their verbal behavior or obstructive their real time behavior gets. And too many members of the media accept this as political rather than speaking out about how egregiously wrong it is to lie and be against what is self-evidently for the public good, the good of the United States of America.
Only several days ago, 22 leading members of the TeaPublican Senatorial contingent voted against the Violence Against Women Act. Great Americans like Marcu Rubio, Lindsay Graham, Randy Paul, and Tom Coburn, who someone on MSNBC this morning said was not so bad for a Republican (are you kidding), voted against protecting women. Of course the newest member of their cadre, Ted Cruz did not disappoint. And what does anyone think about Tim Scott, of South Carolina, the black hope of the TeaPublicans voting against a simple thing like violence against women – what would Martin Luther King Jr. or Thurgood Marshall think? Does his mother know? And what about equal pay for women that every other country in the industrial free world supports? Does Scott know that MLK said the only group discriminated against worse than blacks has been women?
What is there to object to?
From the State of the Union Address:
It is our generation’s task, then, to reignite the true engine of America’s economic growth – a rising, thriving middle class.
It is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many, and not just the few; that it encourages free enterprise, rewards individual initiative, and opens the doors of opportunity to every child across this great nation.
We should do what leaders in both parties have already suggested, and save hundreds of billions of dollars by getting rid of tax loopholes and deductions for the well-off and well-connected. After all, why would we choose to make deeper cuts to education and Medicare just to protect special interest tax breaks? How is that fair? How does that promote growth?
A tax code that lowers incentives to move jobs overseas, and lowers tax rates for businesses and manufacturers that create jobs right here in America. That’s what tax reform can deliver.
Deficit reduction alone is not an economic plan.
Our first priority is making America a magnet for new jobs and manufacturing.
Now is the time to reach a level of research and development not seen since the height of the Space Race. And today, no area holds more promise than our investments in American energy
We must do more to combat climate change.
I propose working with states to make high-quality preschool available to every child in America. Every dollar we invest in high-quality early education can save more than $7 later on…
And the President made an impassioned plea to curb all the gun violance – ban assault weapons, do something about background checks and take other measures out of respect for all the children who have been killed. He asked Congress to vote over and over, but implicit in his passion was to vote against assault weapons and ammunition of devasting destruction.
What is wrong with this? But this and more is what the Republicans who have co-mingled with the Tea Part to produce the TeaPublicans are against. Something is wrong, but it’s not with the Party because a party is only as good as the people who are in it. And what is wrong is evidenced by the Idiots Gone Wild who populate the “party” and the idiots who vote for the treasonous Americans who are against the best interests of the majority.
What is wrong with a woman who is 102 years old standing in line to vote in Florida? And what is wrong with a Senator who does not speak out against voter obstruction when his family came from Communist Cuba? Maybe Marco, who apparently wants to be president between clutching at a bottle of Maine spring water, forgot to applaud the 102 year old American woman who valued voting so much. Maybe there was something in the water. Do creationists believe in H2O – that could be 5 billion years old or is their water only 5,000 years old?
Obama asked for “Smarter Government,” not more government. And he explained the crucial importance of early childhood education. So what is there to be against?
Boehner and McConnell are against anything that comes out of Obama’s mouth and label anything for the people as liberal, which to them means pernicious leprosy. I am against leprosy too. Last night it looked as if the two leaders had the taste of leprosy in their mouths all night. The bad taste was from hearing about what should be done to put America on the road to fairness for all, and maybe in their hearts they know they are wrong.
Marco said, between furtive gropes for water: “nothing frustrates me more than the false choices the President has given us tonight.” He did look frustrated, possible by being in the wrong place on the Bell Shaped Curve, or with animal like cunning subcutaneously realized he was lying through his teeth. How come Marco was not more frustrated by his new colleague-buddy, Ted Cruz, who has questioned Chuck Hagel’s integrity when discussing his appointment as Secretary of State. Hagel served in Viet Nam, and in the Senate for years, there is not much unknown – but who is Cruz? A Teapublican liar trying to ingratiate himself to the Teapublican leaders – Cruz should be aware that almost no Republicans or Teapublicans currently in Congress ever served in the military! Certainly not Lindsey Graham, the Don Quixote of Benghazi. Why is Marco not more frustrated by all the Teapublican lies?
Notwithstanding all of Marco’s outright lies, and the lies of Rand Paul echoed by the Teapublican leadership and their minions, was there really anything to object to?
So now we have a path forward for the next four years and beyond. Nothing that does not make common sense, and nothing that requires negotiation. But we all know that to debate the truth is just politics. Is it ever OK to subvert and obstruct the public good. If the obstruction continues unabated does this not subvert the internal security of America? Isn’t an act that is against the public good, like the obstruction of Congress, not an act of Treasonous sabotage?
And last night marked the return of the Messiah on a mission to save the Teapublicans from mental rigor mortis; but regrettably this Messiah was already hopelessly infected.
