  The GOP Thinks Driving Us To Suicide Will Get Them Votes

The GOP's plot to make a bad situation worse continues with their continued filibuster against unemployment benefits, matched in small-mindedness only by the Democrats, and most particularly Obama's advisers, who are too timid to stop them. Why? Oh, the GOP will tell you they're worried about deficits.

"Deficits don't matter." Dick Cheney, on the tax cuts for the rich.

So we knew already that's a lie. The truth is that the GOP thinks that the worse they make it, the more likely we'll vote for them. Like we don't remember that this began on Bush's watch, and that it was handled by his administration in a way he never would have had they not been about to be succeeded by a Democrat. They wanted to hobble Obama, and force him to spend his time in office simply cleaning up after them. And then blame Obama for the mess in the first place, and pretend Bush didn't exist.



I do blame Obama and the Democrats for one thing: utter unforgivable timidity. That should be said. His advisors are giving him bad advice, and the Senate Democrats(because the extensions already passed the House) are utterly gutless.

But nobody is fooled. This is on the GOP and now they have assured they own this pain. We know exactly who's doing the filibustering. I see GOP thugs all over the web trying to convince people this is a reason to vote for them in November. Because they're vultures and bottom feeders, and they love our pain. Meanwhile suicide hotline calls have spiked violently. Many of their potential voters will probably be dead by then. Not that they care about the lives of their fellow Americans. Or for that matter, America. I don't know what they do care about, but this country isn't it.

And voting them into a majority in Congress? If you think it's hard now, just wait till they have the full weaponry to block progress for another two years. This is about keeping Obama from being re-elected, that's all they care about. And increasing their proportion of Congress will only mean we will suffer for at least two more years as they keep ratcheting this up.

I'm not saying Obama is wonderful, not at all. I'm actually pretty damn angry at him. But for not standing up to these monsters who brought us to this pass in the first place. If someone's ineffective at stopping a rabid dog, the answer is not to let the dog into your house. If the police cannot stop a hostage taker, it doesn't mean you make the hostage taker chief of police.

And at this point, I think we should stop pretending these are just fellow citizens with a different opinion. I think we should stop considering the GOP a political party, and realize what a criminal organization they really are. I think, when they pipe up, we should just quote their hero and respond with a firm "SHUT UP."

They have nothing worthwhile to say, and they mean nothing but harm. They do not even deserve what little power they still have. This isn't cute and this isn't a game. This is people's lives and they don't even care about that. They're reminding us they never did.

They should be driven out of the way. Period. Obama can't be timid in fighting them if they're gone.
