Your Republican Congress – Fighting for financial sanity

with 8 comments

I recently saw a poll that showed that the Republican Party was trailing Venezuela in popularity and barely ahead of Cuba.  While 42% of the American public looks at Venezuela favorably and Cuba is at 38%, our own Republican party is only at 39%.  This is apalling to me.  How can anybody favor people who commit human rights abuses on a routine basis over democratically elected leaders is beyond me.  I’ve come to reallize that if the Republicans are going to rebound we have to toot are own horn.   You’ll never find leftist mainstream media like CNN and Fox News doing it for us.

We accept that we are the minority party right now.  There was nothing we could do to stop Obama’s massive stimulus from going through, but when we saw wasteful spending we zeroed in on it and pointed it out to the American people.   Do you remember when the Dumbocrats (Pet name) wanted to waste money on Governor Bobby Jindahl of Lousiana correctly pointed out, “Instead of monitoring volcanoes, what Congress should be monitoring is the eruption of spending in Washington.”

Did the Democrats gratefully acquiesce?  No, of course not.   They rammed the bloated stimulus through and then had the nerve to do an I told you so when a volcano just happened to flare up in Alaska.   I don’t see how anybody could possibly have seen that coming.  How were we supposed to know?

The Democrats porkulus bill also contained a huge expenditure for something called pandemic preparedness.   When I don’t know what something is, I know its waste.   It sounds like an epidemic of pandas.  I for one would love to see more pandas.  Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) managed to cut $780,000,000 in pandemic preparedness from the stimulus bill.  I couldn’t find out what it was, but I can see in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece, Karl Rove called $2 billion for the National Institutes of Health, $462 million for the Centers for Disease Control, and $900 million for pandemic flu preparations wasteful spending.   Maybe it has to do with pandas getting the flu.

The point is only one part is standing up for the little guy when the Democrats want volano research or flu preparedness or renwable sources of income and that’s us.  Remember this in 2010, we’re your best hope at financial sanity.

  6. Now that we’re the minority party, can I get food stamps? All this talk about stimulus, and I haven’t been stimulated yet.

  7. What I heard was that during his recent trip to Mexico, Obama pocketed a vial of the swine flu virus and brought it back to America so an epidemic would break out. The Karl Rove would look bad for criticizing expenditures for pandemic prevention and Kathleen Sebelius (the abortionist) would be confirmed at HHS. How’s that working for you Barry?

  8. Steve, I’ve suspected something like that. One man who met Obama was dead of swine flu the next day.
