Apparently, when the GOP clown car began with its debates the main focus was on Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, Scottt Walker, and of course Jeb Bush. But after two months of this national disgrace it is totally apparent that the most intelligently challenged buffoon in the GOP field is Jeb Bush, and that is saying a lot when when you consider that Scott Walker was considered a real candidate or Donald Trump with his xenophobic rants, and Carly Fiorina with her penchant for lying. Yes, Jeb Bush has topped them all when it comes to preposterous policies, lies, and a gross misunderstanding of anything beyond his immediate neighborhood.
For example, during the past weeks Jeb! has proposed that black people are only interested in "free stuff", this from a man born with a silver spoon in his mouth who is not acquainted with the real history of America.
Second, according to today's Washington Post: The former Florida Republican governor will outline a plan with four general components that are in line with the Republican orthodoxy: lifting restrictions on exporting oil and gas; approving construction of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline; stripping away some environmental regulations; and urging the federal government to yield to the energy desires of state and tribes. Apparently, polluting the nation's largest water reserves, exporting a needed resource, and allowing greedy oil companies to ruin the environment is not a real issue for Jeb!
Jeb! has also proposed tax changes that benefit the 1% in an interview with Wallace on Fox News. Jeb! tried to explain how a 2.9% benefit to the middle class is great compared to a 11.9% benefit to the top 1%. Jeb! obviously has problems with basic math.
On foreign policy Jeb! believes that taking out Saddam Hussein was a good idea and that torture was beneficial. He also thinks that the invasion of Iraq created a "secure environment" according to a Politicus USA August interview. He also blames Obama/Clinton for the creation of ISIL.
I don't know about you but this Jeb! is a real idiot and he makes his brother George W look like a genius. Pathetic. No wonder the world is looking at the GOP and saying WTF!
Politicus USA.com gave this summary of the Turd's second debate: The Republican candidates promoted the virtues of George W. Bush. They talked up the bogus Planned Parenthood videos, dismissed doing anything about climate change, debated the merits of vaccines, told America that Kim Davis was just like MLK, ignored the middle-class, except to say that working people are struggling and embraced a flat tax that would give more to rich and harm everyone else.
I like many of you did not waste my time watching the Turds promote their stupidity so I cannot speak with authority on what Politicus observed but from past headlines I find their assessment credible. These buffoons/candidates offer no vision, at least not one they would truthfully talk about to the public, for America because they lack vision, courage, and intelligence. From the uneducated flip-flopper, Scott Walker who has decimated his state's education budget and workers' right you hear lies about how well he has created jobs. From the criminal pig governor, Chris Christie, you hear his plan to tattoo illegal immigrants like they are Fed X packages. From Trump you get racism, from Carly Fiorina incompetence and the rest mind numbing bullshit, not worth remembering.
What the debates have shown thus far is that the supporters of anyone of these Turds have to be dumber-than- dog-shit. The people supporting such bottom-of-the-barrel candidates lack any meaningful understanding of civics, history, economics, and certainly have intellectual deficiencies of a major sort.
One can only hope that when the party of fools eventually nominates Donald Trump for president and Carly Fiorina for VP, intelligent Americans will finally drive a nail in the coffin of the Republican Party. We thought the GOP learned in 1964 when they nominated the racist Barry Goldwater but thirty years of the Southern Strategy has allowed them to potentially make the same mistake again. Right on Republicans, America needs a cleansing.
Do you know any republicans? I don't. I don't want to know any republicans because I have read about them, seen how they govern, listen to non-politician republicans talk about issues, lived in states governed by republicans, and sadly worked in industries with republicans. And the only thing that can be said about interactions with republicans is that it causes one to suffer undue stress. Just think for a moment when someone lies to you constantly; how do you feel? Certainly, you can't trust them. Or consider the case where they as politicians put forth policies based on lies, misinformation, and/or fraudulent activities. Is that someone you would trust or vote for when knowing their deceptions?
So it amazes me when I read Commercial Entertainment Media, normally identified as Main Stream Media, where they constantly present the republican policies, ideas, plans, and other crap without any type of analyses, etc. Republicans are never held accountable in the CEM for their racism, obstructionism, lies, hypocrisy, subversion of American foreign policy, and a host of other faults. Republicans are presented as credible news sources, their pundits are never challenged on the non-facts spewing from their twisted logic. Republican candidates for political offices are allowed to lie repeatedly, unchallenged by the media at any level. Once they are elected to office, they straightaway begin making sweetheart deals with their donors, relatives, former business partners, etc. (Let us not forget their are some rotten Democrats in the barrel as well). But yet given all this evidence going back years and decades before the worthless Bushes, Bill Clinton, and the star of them all: Ronald Reagan. Americans still give the fascist and racist Republican Party respect.
Today, I read an article from Politicus USA.com entitled Republicans Have Spent 2015 Working For Foreigners, the Kochs, and Religious Extremists, (I have posted on the GOP Politics page) which I found most disturbing and clearly highlights why I find republicans distasteful and disgusting. The article concluded with the following paragraph:
If Americans were not so stupid and complacent, one might think they would stop and think about how Republicans attacking women’s reproductive rights, working for foreigners, and doing the bidding of billionaires is in any way, shape, or form laying and collecting taxes to pay debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the American people. That is the job the U.S. Constitution says members of Congress are supposed to be doing and yet Republicans have remained laser-focused and dedicated to working solely for foreigners, the Kochs and religious extremists. It is yet another ongoing sign that regardless of who controls the Legislative branch of government, if Republicans cannot adequately serve the interests of their foreign, wealthy, and religious masters they will obstruct honest efforts to provide for the general welfare of the American people; because Republicans hate the American people as much as they love their foreigners, the Koch brothers, and religious extremists.
Comments to think about.
