Margaret, with a natural disaster as big as Sandy, chances were pretty good that a Republican foot was going to end up in a mouth declaring that God was punishing liberals in blue states. Imagine my surprise when instead Governor Chris Christie decided to put partisan politics aside and work with the President to help citizens in need. I wonder if other Republicans were paying attention?
Unfortunately they were, but the lesson was clearly lost on them. Many suggested that Christie has eyes for a Presidential run in 2016 which can’t happen if Romney wins. Others offered that Christie was seeking revenge for not being selected as the Vice Presidential candidate.
Our favorite big-footed gal suggested that Christie “is hoping to use Obama to plug a dike.” Do I really have to attribute that quote to Ann Coulter or could you just tell by the fifth-grade mentality?
But in the ultimate pot meets kettle moment, Rush Limbaugh called Christie “fat and a fool” saying the New Jersey Governor “doesn’t know what he is talking about.” Oh Rush Limbaugh you fat, fool – heal thyself.
The Republicans are upset, of course, because one of their own was breaking ranks and actually suggesting that Obama isn’t the devil. And to make it worse, Obama was showing the country how a well run government can and should handle a crisis which only reminds Republicans of just how bad the last Republican President had been.
But never fear. The Republican candidate for President would not be denied his moment to shine and prove himself “presidential”. While the Christie-Obama love fest was going on, Mitt Romney took the opportunity to show what kind of President he would be:
“I remember once we had a football field at my high school. The field was covered with rubbish and paper goods from people who’d had a big celebration there at the game. And there was a group of us there assigned to clean it up. And I thought, ‘how are we going to clean up all the mess on this football field?’ There were just a few of us. And the person responsible for organizing the effort said, ‘Just line up along the yard lines. You go between the goal line and the 10-yard line, and the next person between the 10 and 20, and just walk down and do your lane. And if everybody cleans their lanes, we’ll get it done.”
Margaret, I bet Mitt made a spectacular Prom King. And if I was thinking about putting on a show in the barn… Oh, who the hell am I kidding? Mitt Romney is a moron. If I had my way, we’d vote him off the island. He is dishonest as the day is long, and he will say anything to become president. And while those remarks might cause some to label me a partisan during this time of bi-partisan unity, you might be surprised just how bi-partisan my statement actually is:
“Mitt Romney will lie to you to become President and he will lie to you when he becomes President… Mitt Romney will do and say anything to become President. Anything.” – Newt Gingrich
“I don’t know how to respond to Mitt Romney because his position may change tomorrow.” – John McCain
And Mike Huckabee on Mitt Romney – “If a man’s dishonest to get a job, he’ll be dishonest on the job.”
Here’s hoping that the east coast rapidly recovers from the most recent tragedy. And here’s to hoping Obama gets re-elected so that America can continue to recover from the tragedy that was the last Republican presidency. I mean it. Really.
