Big Republican Gamble

To hear some republicans yesterday morning, the stimulus package is already a total failure. Not even 48 hours had passed and the bill hasn’t even been signed into law, but according to them, it just won’t work.

In my opinion they took the mother of all gambles when they voted against this bill. Do they really think the public is so stupid that they won’t remember that at least President Obama attempted to do something? What have the republicans done over the last few years to try to avoid this financial collapse? This disaster didn’t just happen over night.

You know, years of being under George Bush made the GOP more arrogant and blind than previously imagined!

The Republicans never cease to amaze me with their stupidity. Where was all of the concern over spending during the Bush years?

Desperation makes you pretty stupid. They are all hanging their hats on the failure of President Obama to make any progress in undoing the damage they have wrought. The American people will remember who tried to save the day. The current poll numbers show the truth.

I do wonder about the people, Pop. They allowed George Bush to steal the election. Twice.

The voters aren't going to forget how quickly the GOP caved on the TARP when Bush was president less than a half year ago. $800 billion with no strings attached to a bunch of high living thieves. At least some of this money is going to get to folks doing useful work.

The point of the GOP minority bitching and moaning is not really about whether the stimulus is going to fail. This is an exercise in the squeaky wheel trying to get the grease, and, sadly, it's working.

I love your outlook!The Republicans likely figure that they will already start sabotoging Obama's possibility of a second term by stalling any real change he tries to make during his time in Office!

It's all pre-bitching, so that if the package doesn't immediately do some good (despite the time it took to get things to turn to shit) they can all stand on their little chairs and point and scream "We told you so!"

It is pretty amazing. I've never seen a political party so intent on political suicide.

Oh well. The country will be the ultimate winners of the GOP makes itself irrelevant.
