I still can't see
Why Democracy means
Everybody but me.
~Langston Hughes, The Black Man Speaks
Harry Reid finally jumps ugly into the face of the GOP. He calls them what they are, obstructionists. They have been holding up presidents Obama's nominees for months and then saying that the president hasn't got people in place. Whose fault is that? The GOPs that who. The Gay Old Party is not acting in the best interest of the country but in the own perverted hate filled interest, and the country be damned. The Republicans are moving more and more to the right and if it continues it will become a party that will have completely lost touch with the middle. They are playing to the ultra conservative evangelicals who pray for president Obama's death. They suck up to the Tea Baggers, the poorly educated poor white mid-Americans with no real grasp on the issues. Those to whom discrimination, hate and bigotry is fine. Those who feel that they have to get that uppity black man out of the White House. The same Tea Baggers who cheered Tom Trancredo who called for de-facto discrimination against blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, and any other group that is different than their white America. The Gay Old Party, once the party of reason and sanity has now lost it's way and it's collective mind.

It is time that the GOP look at itself in the mirror. They keep saying that the Obama administration is going to cut Social Security and Medicare but it is the Republicans with the plan to destroy it. "Last week, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the ranking Republican on the House Budget Committee, unveiled a GOP budget blueprint that slashes Medicare and privatize Social Security. The same plan, incidentally, includes more tax breaks for the wealthy and a "consumption tax" of 8.5% that would unfairly burden the lower- and middle-class." Privatize Medicare and you take a giant step backwards. When the profit motive becomes a factor and the share holders become the ones to please you definitely will see grandma die for lack of treatment. The attack on Social Security is not new, Bush proposed it and faced major objections from Americans across all strata of society. I dare the GOP to attempt to eliminate Social Security, that would be the death knell for any future Republican candidate.
