Republican Party Defeat Stage 2- Anger

Conservative Republicans have reached the anger stage in their grief process over their defeat after the November elections. That much power lost would make anyone crazy. Thinking that having that power was theirs to begin with was the first step in the long journey they have been taking.

The fiscal cliff is the latest salvo between the Boehner led conservative Republican party, and Obama, most Democrats, some Republicans, women, immigrants, immigrant students. . . Okay, everyone else.

According to CNN,

Conservative Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, promised the newly re-elected Obama “one hell of a fight” next year if the president forces through his plan for high-income earners to pay more taxes without agreeing to substantive steps to reduce the nation’s chronic federal deficits and debt.

This, I’m afraid, is symbolic of the attitude the conservative Republican party has taken on just about every issue that’s been floating through congress. It’s always a fight. Im all for sticking up for what you truly believe in, and occasionally having to resort to fighting to save someone from harm, when you go about your daily work routine fighting with someone, you have to ask yourself (or at least you should) am I right on all of these issues? Am I right about EVERYTHING?

There is a saying, “if you drive down the street and you see someone driving like an idiot, you saw an idiot. Later, if you see another one, okay, you saw two idiots. If, yet again,  you see someone else driving like an idiot, then it’s definite; you are the idiot.”

Ultra-conservative Republicans- it’s time to face the fact that it is YOU who are the problem, not the president, nor the democrats, nor gays, nor women, nor immigrants, nor any number of other people. Defeat is often humbling, but only for those who really need it.

Come on. Admit it. You aren’t fooling very many people–they already know it.
