Where in Tarnation are all the Republicans?

I suppose it's easy to get lost in all of the frenzied media attention given to the new President, but did the Republicans suddenly go into collective hiding? The only peeps I hear about them are that they are busy attending "bi-partisan" dinners, and muttering sweet nothings about giving Obama a chance. John McCain is Obama's new BFF, and syndicated columnists like David Brooks and Charles Krauthammer are singing his praises. I know the guy is charismatic but does one completely lose one's mind upon meeting "The One" in person? Is that it, really? Or have they just lost their cajones and are too ashamed to admit it, so they're chalking up their love-in to the post-partisan "let's all work together" mumbo jumbo the new Dear Leader professes.

Well, I've got a little news for all of you Republican legislators and columnists who want to give the Big O some breathing room. You've been had. Because while you wait breathlessly to "give him a chance", he is tirelessly working to transform this nation forever, right under your feet. He figures once he's got you sidelined, it'll be a snap to run the ball all the way up the field, barely breaking a sweat. You will all be co-conspirators because you didn't even attempt to smack him down. And when the damage is done, history will show the great American "transformation" to a socialist democracy to be a bi-partisan act, approved by all the people of this great land.

Wrong. You were elected to protect the Constitution, to protect "we the people", and to preserve the spirit of ingenuity that has made this the most innovative and productive nation on earth. I'd like to give you the benefit of the doubt, and think that you are really just biding your time for the most opportune moment to make your voices heard. But your recent past actions have not inspired even that level of confidence. So get out there and fight. For us, for our kids, and for the future of our nation. I do not want to have to tell my grandkids about the America that once was. I want them to experience it for themselves. If you don't have the guts to do it, get off the playing field and let someone else sack this quarterback.

Dear Mad Mom,

Love your blog... Take a look at this gem, fresh off the presses at the Traitor Times! These are the people and Ideologies running our country:

Mr. Boehner and other Republicans have taken issue with the large chunk of funding in the stimulus package — some $300 billion all told — that will go to shore up the budgets of states. That figure includes billions in state aid to education and such controversial pieces as millions in spending for family-planning initiatives.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking on ABC’s “This Week,” said that the assistance to states was necessary, including the family-planning funds.

“The family-planning services reduce cost,” she said. “The states are in terrible fiscal budget crisis now, and part of it, what we do for children’s health, education, and some of those elements, are to help the states meet their financial needs.”

Family Planning Services = Abortions.

How does it feel to know America that your tax money, and we are talking hundreds of millions of dollars MORE than what is already being spent (But hey whatever can save us money in the long run right Nancy?) will go to the slaughter of children?


I really fear it is already too late, It seems the seeds of the next civil war are being sown as we stand by and watch...

He is certainly making history...

Baus,
Didn't you know? Birth control and abortions will save the economy! Why didn't we think of that?
Seriously, Obama and the Dems are so misguided in their ideology and plans to turn this crisis around that they are sure to dig their own graves. Unfortunately, they will also be digging ours. The question I struggle with is, besides blogging and calling legislators, how do we stop them? How do we make them really listen? It's all about them and keeping their jobs, so the answer lies there.

Mad Mom,

You pose an interesting question... I really believe the answer is nothing, I don't believe that these are things that will be solved peacably anymore, I really believe we are on the cusp of the next civil war and the eventual splitting of America.

I will tell you what I am most afraid of though.... How do I apologize to my children for what we are about to hand them? How do I explain to them that we sold and mortgaged away their future and dreams? and for what?

Totally agree, Baus. We cannot stand by and let these buffoons destroy this country and burden our children with their misguided policies. One can only hope that Americans will wake up and realize that the change they asked for is not the change that is actually being put into effect. My fear is that Obama will pull the wool over everyone's eyes and irreparable damage will be done in record time.
