The great majority of Americans whether we are Republican, Independent, or Democrat want the Republican ran Congressional committees to stop their witch hunts on the Obama Administration and to begin the business of governing. We realize that no President has done more to try to stop the leaks coming out of Washington than what President Obama has. The press has made the fact clear to all of us that President Obama has tightened up the reports to the point that information coming out is next to impossible to gain and unlike any President before him, has ever attempted to do, while still allowing the American public the right to know.
These leaks existed in previous Administrations as well and no matter how outraged the Republicans led by John McCain gets, only the Republican majority and the naive or some would say the hateful or stupid amongst us, believe that the Obama Administration is promoting the leaks to gain political support from the voters. Instead we see it as the Republican own political maneuvering in an effort to tarnish our President in an election year.
Doesn’t it make far more sense to all of us that the leaks on the Ben Laden attacks are coming from within the Seals themselves? Lets say for instance that the Navy Seal who is writing a book under a false name let his editor and publisher read his book that is due out and ready for release on Sept.11 may be responsible for the leaks on the Ben Laden raid. Since the Navy Seal went around the military, they do not know how many security breaches this man may have leaked because the Navy Seal, whose responsibility it is to protect the secrets and security of all Navy Seal operations, has not allowed the military to review his book prior to him publishing it. The witch hunt to blame President Obama is just more of the Republicans attempts to try to make the American public believe that President Obama would stoop to any level to promote his own standing, and is unfit to lead.
A similar attempt by the Republican Conservatives to do so, did not help the cause of the Conservative movement with the use of the Starr committee during the Clinton years and will not work for the Conservatives now. Quite frankly the views held towards the Conservative and Tea Party bickering amongst the few moderates that are left in the Party, in Congress, can not sink any lower and to do yet another witch hunt does nothing but hurt their own cause.
We, who do pay attention to such matters, are well aware of the attacks being done in the Middle East against the Taliban, the extinction of Osama Ben Laden, and the precautions being taken to make certain that weapons and chemical warfare does not end up in their hands by our President,Panetta, and Hilary Clinton. It does not take leaking classified materials to the American public and thereby jeopardizing our own military soldiers to tell us the kind of ’bang up job’ that has been done by all three as well as their staffs.
To suggest that our President would authorize the leaks to improve his political standing is as crazy as it sounds to those of us who operate on the level of common sense and hold even a small iota of intelligence. It only assures us that the level that the Republican Party has sunk, in our eyes, is as low as it can get. The only thing lower than the attacks being made on President Obama by the Congress are the attacks coming out of the mouth of Michelle Bachman while she spreads the rumors of infiltration in the Obama Administration. When we add to that the accusations that the Democratic Budget committee are all Communists, one has to question if paranoia has driven them all mad.
To hold just another Congressional witch hunt or a Senate investigation instead of getting back to governing while the American middle class dwindles in size due to the lack of regard for those who remain under-employed because of Mitch McConnell’s and Eric Cantor’s personal hate against our President, that began on the day he was sworn in, while he has worked tirelessly to try to pass a jobs package for us, is only hurting the Tea Party and the Conservative cause.
We would like to see the leaks stopped but for the fox to guard its own henhouse which is being done by the Republicans today is at the crux of the problem. Their own operative agent was exposed and endangered by the leaks in their own Party, if we will recall the incidence ,during the Bush Administration.
We have sat for 4 years with the Republicans doing nothing but filibustering every effort being attempted to promote the cause of the middle class and working poor while the bickering goes on in their own Party amongst them and the Democratic opposition. Nothing gets done except just more accusations and attempts to stop President Obama from leading us out of the morass that was caused under the Republican leadership or the lack of the same. Because of their lack of action or success they have been nicknamed the “Do Nothing” Congress and their favorability by the American Public has fallen lower than any Congress in the history of the United States.
The Republican majority in the House have stopped the appointment of Federal judges being appointed to our Federal Courts, tried to deny us consumer protection by refusing to vote on the Obama appointee, delayed the “Violence Against Women Bill”,refused to move on any bill that did not lead to stopping or removing regulations on those who caused the decline in our economy, they begrudgingly passed one job package only because it was an election year and they needed to return home to face their own voters, they have worked with the States to pass voter restrictions on those of us who would vote against them,they spent months prolonging the debate over passing tax relief for the middle class and fighting amongst themselves over petty arguments before they agreed to passing it, and instead of governing they have begun and started one witch hunt after the other to prove our President unfit to lead, Muslim and a non-citizen.
The equal rights of women along with the middle class under the guidance of Republicans John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and Eric Cantor are being held hostage in both the Congress and Senate by the Republican Tea Party and Conservative members. This is not being reported by the media but it is taking place right under our noses and we are fed up! To blame the Democrat majority for a lack of compromise when the Republicans refuse to grant equal rights to women or tax breaks for the middle class unless Billionaires and Exon Oil get a bigger break is the tragedy taking place amongst the Republican majority and we can no longer tolerate the behavior of these obstructionists who do not govern for us but against us while arguing amongst themselves.
When our elected officials in the Republican Party demand that women of incest and rape be victimized again by refusing them the help they need and that government has a right to disallow women the right to their own health issues and conception, while denying that they are responsible for an open assault against women, it is time that “We the People” replace them both in Washington and in our States. When the Republicans attempt to fire teachers in an effort to eliminate the Public school system it is time to replace them. When the Republican majority fights to increase the power of the lobbyist and Capitalism at an expense to the middle class and working poor while eliminating government Agencys that protect us, it is time for “We the People” to fire them both in our States and Washington.
When the Republican majority fight to eliminate minimum wages while lowering the wages of the middle class even further with “the right to work laws”, then it is time to tell them “their time is up.” When the Paul Ryan plan to increase the wealth of the already wealthy by cutting their taxes further, while eliminating the benefits that seniors have paid for and increasing taxes on the working poor and middle class families, and every Republican that is elected to Washington must agree to this or lose the financial backing of the GOP and support of the Tea Party, then it is time to tell them that we have had enough of their politics and fire or replace them all both in our States and Washington.
Electing new faces in the Republican Party with campaign money being provided by Conservatives speak and backed groups and the Tea Party will not change this disparity between the wealthy and the middle class, as all new candidates running for an office in our States as Governor and in Washington on the Republican ticket must agree to the Ryan plan if their campaigns will be supported or financed by either or both. These groups have entered every State in the Nation and given money to every candidate running on the Republican ticket in all 50 States. In exchange for their financial support they must support the Paul Ryan plan that is running the Romney economic team. If we the voters do not tell them that we are aware of their high-handed tactics and lies, then we can be assured of the fact that the middle class and the working poor will continue to lose along with the Seniors in America.
This insanity must stop before the Republican Party dies in shambles from the right-wing extremists who have taken over their Party. Even though I am a Democrat, I like many in the Republican Party do not want to see the “Proud old Party,” hang itself at the expense of the middle class and working poor, any longer. It is past time that “We the People” take back the power granted to us through our Constitution and fire them all and not replace them with more Conservative and Tea Party elected who will continue their assault on women and the middle class both in Washington and in our States. We need to vote out those who will destroy the Party of Lincoln and demand that our Congress gets back to governing in November through our votes.
If they cannot or will not stop the insanity in their own Party then “WE the People” need to send them the message that we are fed up with them through our votes in November, by eliminating those who refuse to protect the interests of “We the People.” We all deserve a Congress and Senate in Washington and Governors in our States who will govern and work for us, who send them to Washington and the Governor mansions in our States, and pay their wages. Vote in November.
