Polite, gentle Republicans are wearisome. In the face of the America-destroying policies of this enemy-within horde of criminal thugs under the crook-in-chief, Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), I would think the Republicans would be brave enough—at least for America’s sake—to leave their mealy mouths at the door and tell it like it is. But, with very few exceptions, they continue to pussy-foot around the outrageous actions and brazen lies of the oligarchy of communist Democrats ruling our nation.
We are sick of watching the “opposition” Republicans stand meekly by and let the Democrats get away with lie after atrocious lie. It happened again on Tuesday in the wake of the terrible explosion on Monday night at the Hawthorne Army Depot in Nevada that killed seven of our precious Marines.
It is clear that there is no scummy depth to which the Democrats will not descend in their wicked efforts to advance their tyrannical, socialist-communist agenda, and there is no event, no matter how awful, that they will not hesitate to exploit. So, the despicable creature, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, on Tuesday jumped with all-fours onto the horrific explosion in Nevada to insinuate that sequester cuts had something to do with it. This is breathtakingly vile.
Speaking on the Senate floor Tuesday morning, Reid said:
Mr. President, it’s very important we continue training our military, so important. But one of the things in sequester is we cut back in training and maintenance. That’s the way sequester was written. Now, the bill that’s on the floor, we hope to pass today helps that a little bit. At least in the next six months, it allows the military some degree of ability to move things around a little bit. Flexibility, we call it, and that’s good. But we have to be very vigilant. This sequester should go away. We have cut already huge amounts of money in deficit reduction. It’s just not appropriate, Mr. President, that our military can’t train and do the maintenance necessary.
These men and women, our Marines were training there in Hawthorne. And with this sequester, it’s going to cut back this stuff. I just hope everyone understands the sacrifices made by our military. They are significant, being away from home, away from families, away from their country.
What a vicious louse! How dare he use these Marines, who had been dead for barely a day, to push his detestable big-government schemes?! How dare he lie about the cause of their deaths?!
These Democrats and Obama are so obsessed with growing government spending that they are pathologically fixated on the sequester, which doesn’t even represent any real cuts in government spending! These power-gluttons are insane!
I tried to find stories of Republicans strongly denouncing Harry Reid’s sick statements and calling him out for the worm-dirt scoundrel he is, but the only story I found was a Washington Times piece reporting that Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) spoke against Reid’s statements:
Republican Sen. Tom Coburn on Wednesday accused Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of “political manipulation” when he suggested a fatal training exercise that killed seven Marines was due to the sequester cuts.
“It’s tragic that he would even connect the two,” Mr. Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican, told Fox News. “It’s another unfortunate aspect of words being spoken to try to gain a political advantage rather than doing the right, best thing for the country.”
After a Tuesday explosion at ammunitions depot in Hawthorne, Nev., killed the Marines, Mr. Reid, a Nevada Democrat, bemoaned on the Senate floor that “our military can’t train and do the maintenance necessary” with the sequester in place.
… But Mr. Coburn said such a notion was nonsense because “our military forces don’t put their troops at risk” during training.
“They’re not going to train if they don’t have the proper equipment and time,” he said.
… Mr. Coburn also accused President Obama of playing politics with the sequester, saying he wants the cuts “to be painful so he can make the case that we need bigger government, larger government, that we cannot cut the things that we should be cutting.”
While what Mr. Coburn said is true, and I’m glad he at least said something against Reid and Obama, it still remains that what Reid said warranted a much more fiery response. What Harry Reid said was not “tragic” or “unfortunate.” What Reid said was evil.
The American people are starving for principled conservatives (or even backboned Republicans) to stand up against these wretched commie Democrats and simply tell it like it is, to fearlessly call a spade a spade, to man-up and tell the nation the truth about what the Left is doing. We are sick of wimpy, effeminate reactions to the aggressively tyrannical, anti-freedom, anti-Americanism of the ruling Left, which sadly, does include a number of “Republicans.”
Conservatives and Republicans in Washington seem to be afraid of their own shadows. They are afraid of media reaction. They are afraid of being called “mean-spirited” by the very people who have cornered the market on meanness. Why should the Republicans give a rip what the trolls of the Left say about them? Oh, I know the answer: power, money and reelection are often more important than principles and the well-being of our nation.
Republicans could even get some pointers from the boldness of the Democrats. While the Democrats stand and tell the most phenomenal lies, say the stupidest things and lob the most fantastic accusations at Republicans, at least they always do it with aggressive fervor.
Republicans are already maligned by the lying Left and the Left’s shameless media mouthpieces, and nothing the Republicans say will make the media “like” them, so, why not bravely stand up to Obama and the Democrats? Why not say what millions of fed-up Americans are wishing they would say?
Why not take a lesson from national talk radio host, Mark Levin? As the Washington Times reported on Wednesday, Levin had this to say about Harry Reid and his evil remarks about the dead Marines and sequester:
“It was grotesque,” Mr. Levin said. “And Harry Reid, you’re the lowest of the low-lives, you know that? You really are at the bottom of the sewer, all the time on every issue. … You are just a very ill human being. And the fact that you’re the Senate majority leader says an awful lot about the Democrats in the Senate. … We deserve better than this man. He is a vicious stupid man.”
Mr. Levin also called Mr. Reid a “miscreant” and a “no talent politician” with a “low I.Q.”
Ah, that’s better. And, oh how it does cleanse the mental palate to hear the truth about these rats plainly spoken!
Now, if only we can get the Mitch McConnells and the John Boehners out there to talk like this to the commie Democrats, then we just might get somewhere.
