Don't Act So Surprised. You Knew This Was the Plan All Along!
Republicans say they would rather hurt President Obama than create a single job.
Really and truly.
Oh, wipe that surprised look off your face. You knew! You knew ever since Mitch McConnell said the number 1 priority of the GOP was to make sure Obama was a one term president.
A patriotic Senate minority leader might have said something like, "Our number one priority is to put people back to work. Our number one priority is to keep our citizens safe from outside attack. Our number one priority is to ensure that Americans are safe in their homes."
MCCONNELL: The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.
Well that is true, [making Obama a one-term President is] my single most important political goal along with every active Republican in the country.
So why are you so surprised when a GOP political operative told Politico, “Obama is on the ropes; why do we appear ready to hand him a win?” said one senior House Republican aide who requested anonymity to discuss the matter freely.
Don't have a job? Fuck you. You can STAY unemployed until late November 2012 as far as the Republicans are concerned. You getting a job hurts them politically.
“To assume that we’re naturally for these things because we’ve been for them does not mean we will be for them if they cause debt, if they [have] tax increases and if they take money from the free-enterprise sector, which creates jobs,” said Texas Rep. Pete Sessions, who heads up the House Republican campaign arm.
