I will start by admitting I am very upset at the GOP and its so-called leaders, but I am equally upset at the Voters in our Party!
If you are a GOP Voter and are still making excuses for either one of these two GOP leaders, then we will never begin to reform the Republican Party. The GOP, which is Your Party, is working against you day in, and day out, and I would like to know, What are you going to do about it?
Being in denial about what is going on does not help anyone. And if you are not in denial, but are afraid to speak up about it, then that is even worse. Choosing to remain silent about a problem has far worse consequences than admitting it exists and attempting to correct it. You get the party that you choose to have!
First, I would like to DEMAND an apology from MITT ROMNEY. I know it may be late, and we will probably never get one, but he should apologize for wasting our time, our treasure and our attention on his failed candidacy which we predicted would happen, and yet were forced to accept.
I do not believe for one minute what his son, Tagg, said about him not wanting to run. If it is true, it troubles me because he would have to have been incredibly dishonest to have strung along his supporters for six years. It would also show a blatant disregard for all of the voters and the process in general. On the other hand, if it is not true, then hiding behind a family member to speak on his behalf to make excuses for his failure is even more pathetic. Leaders do not make excuses for their failures. They take responsibility for them.
When people do wrong by others, they should not be parading themselves around as if life is wonderful. It is not! I am tired of selfish politicking. Who is sacrificing, may I ask?! Not him!
ROMNEY ran against us in this last election. He started campaigning against us in 2007 through his advisor, Kevin Madden, as many of you already know, by spreading a false charge that Sarah Palin, who represents us, was inexperienced. Let’s be honest. This election was never about the GOP against Obama, but about the GOP against us, We-the-People.
Until you, GOP voters, Wake UP and admit this, we will never be able to focus on our “other” enemy. It’s no longer about the D’s v. the R’s! We must deal with the reality of who is undermining us, the GOP, who is supposed to be On Our Side, but is not.
The second person I would like an apology from is Dr. MICHELE BACHMANN.
I want to let it be known that Michele Bachmann will forever be known as the BACKSTABBER to many, one who always looks out for number one. She may have others fooled, but not this voter. Theory is one thing, and applied knowledge is another. And loyalty in politics is NUMBER ONE. Just because what you do looks good on paper and you have good ideas, does not make you effective. It is unfortunate because she happens to have foreign policy that I agree with, but because she chooses to “fit in” instead of stand on principle, she loses my respect. In any case, she is not only ineffective in D.C., but an ineffective Tea Party advocate who is unloyal to the cause she pretends to defend and its leader.
Michele Bachmann used the Tea Party cause and created a caucus inside Washington to further her career early on, and she did very little about it following that. She also used Sarah Palin’s high profile and popularity to promote herself by raising much needed funds and publicity for her campaign, only to badmouth her in Iowa when she was campaigning for President, which was made possible thanks to the attention she enjoyed because of Sarah’s support in the first place.
Michele Bachmann exits the stage after an embarrassing primary, penniless and with no support from either the GOP or the Tea Party, and manages to bounce back from the fall, only to disappoint all over again.
When will politicians learn? It never ceases to amaze me! Do they disappoint me? Yes. Does this surprise me? Not at all.
Here are the results of Boehner’s Speakership renewal vote:
Twelve representatives ~ too few! ~ voted for someone else or abstained. It is apparent there is a problem in Washington. If we elect leaders to speak up for us and they are afraid to do so because Speaker Boehner will punish or marginilize them, what do we do to change that? Instead of being rewarded for representing the people, they are probably going to be castigated by the Speaker instead. It is up to us to show them our praise and recognition. I know I will start extending my thanks to them today.
