GOP sees, shoots, foot

The Grand Old Party is bereft of decent ideas, is morally bankrupt and is transparently hypocritical to an embarrassing extent. The party was soundly trounced at the polls not three and half months ago and this is the response.

Attacking a president who swept into office with a massive portion of the vote doesn’t seem like the path resurgence to me. Maybe the Republican braintrust knows something none of the rest of do, or more likely they just have head-in-the-ass syndrome.

From the Daily Dish link:

This much is now clear. Their clear and open intent is to do all they can, however they can, to sabotage the new administration (and the economy to boot). They want failure. Even now. Even after the last eight years. Even in a recession as steeply dangerous as this one. There are legitimate debates to be had; and then there is the cynicism and surrealism of total political war. We now should have even less doubt about what kind of people they are. And the mountain of partisan vitriol Obama will have to climb every day of the next four or eight years.
