An Open Letter to Republicans


Dear Republicans...and in particular those running for the GOP nomination, as well as Congressmen and Senators like Eric Cantor, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Jim DeMint, Tom Coburn, Roy Blunt, Marco Rubio and countless others. I just want to say, in this era of unprecedented political invective and vitriol, that I appreciate and respect you. I also want you to know that I am extremely thankful for your existence, and feel blessed by your consistency and predictability. I say all that because you guys have literally handed the White House on a silver platter to President Obama for another four years. And maybe even control of the House again too.

Who would have thought, just a few short months ago, that Obama would be out measuring drapes again. The economy, while clearly in a solid recovery to those who obsess over leading economic indicators, still appears fragile to most Americans. We still have high unemployment, record high fuel prices, a depressed housing market, weak manufacturing and way too many foreclosures, defaults and bankruptcies. A perfect storm making this year's elections ripe for the GOP picking, you say? The table couldn't have been better for you guys if Martha Stewart had set it herself.

So how do you Republicans respond? The first thing you do is turn your presidential nomination process into a circus complete with unqualified clowns like Donald Trump, Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich dominating the three rings. And then you let these bozo's turn Mitt Romney, a generally decent, historically moderate guy, into a "severe conservative" in his rapacious hunger to win. What you did was say to voters, "We obviously don't take this election seriously, so why should you?"

Then, if that wasn't enough, while everyone wants to hear about what you'll do to fix the economy and create jobs, you guys go off on a non-stop tangent over religion, gay marriage, abortion and contraception. Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with you people!? You never learn. You simply can't help yourselves, can you? As your car is once again careening off a cliff you're still screaming about the evil of birth control and sex. This from a party with myriad mistresses and sensational sex scandals. I'm so confused. You guys clearly love sex. It just seems like you want to stop the rest of us from having it.

Lastly, just when it seems you could do no more to destroy your chances of winning in November you go ahead and let your spiritual leader Rush Limbaugh make outrageously misogynistic remarks--comments that attack an entire gender and offend all thinking people--with relative impunity. Not one of you running for president repudiates or condemns these despicable slurs or makes any attempt to distance yourself from this vile sexist pig. It's as if you're all happy that he's saying all the nasty crap you guys really wanna say yourself but can't.

So again I say, thank you. No, wait. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Because one mere thank you isn't enough. You guys and your radical extremist social views are the gift that keeps on giving. So keep it up! Keep all the God, gays and sex stuff coming. We love it.
Signed,
A Very Grateful Democrat

    I am not in general thrilled with Obama. I am still mad as hell that he nixed the Keystone XL, but there is no one on the other side who is remotely capable of taking over either. And I am sick of their rhetoric making me feel like a second class citizen.

    Could you have perhaps mentioned the Republican who all the other media is also ignoring? I mean at least if your going to publicly scrutinize the GOP candidates, point out the Candidate who is not a fucking dirt bag... And in case you are that slow( and im sure your not as most Dems i think do have brains), I mean Ron Paul. Please don't take this as disrespect for your opinions, I just think he deserves some mention on the topic. With respect, Nick N.

    You forgot to add that from the day Barack Obama was declared the winner of the Presidency, Republicans have been on a vicious attack to undermine, derail, and stop this man. Their people, whether directly or indirectly tied, have slandered, lied, mislead with dubious so-called facts...anything to put the American people in a suspect mode regarding their President who happened to be Black! Then, when he presents programs to SAVE AMERICA and turn it around from the near destructive policies of Bush/Cheney, which you Republicans supported wholeheartedly, you fight him tooth & nail. The economy has turned around. The Dow in close to 13,000 from it's low during Bush/Cheney of 6,500 approx., unemployment amongst people with a college degree is UNDER 4.5% and with a Masters or higher, it's less than 4%, the Auto Industry has recovered and is hiring again...and the country would be soooooooo much further along the road to recovery had you guys put aside your hatred, bigotry, and desire to demolish his popularity - all at the expense of the American people instead of working with him and supporting his ideas & programs. Afterall, they could NOT be worse than what George W. Bush did...and you see the mess he left the country in....and you all supported him blindly!

    The Republican candidates really are an unbelievable clown circus, but there are also a lot of right wing voters who they pander to who are too ignorant to know better, and will vote Republican anyway, against their own interests,especially middle working class Americans. But hopefully their rants on their pseudo-religious beliefs they want to impose on everyone while spewing misogynist lies and invective will even turn some of their voter base against them.

    Next, Republicans will be trying to repeal the 19th Amendment that gave women the right to vote and pass legislation that we should heretofore, only wear dresses, not pants or slacks. Plus, no anesthesia during labor, please. Gawd said to bear our children in pain and suffering. All who do not comply shall be burned at the stake.

    Absolutely the best article on the clowns I've read in ages. You are aware, of course, that they think they are brilliant and are "on the RIGHT track".
