Whiney, Overly-Hysterical, Thin-Skinned Are The GOP's GOOD Qualities

And if it wasn't the GOP making claims of "stolen" House votes, I'd be crying oceans of bitter tears for the party's travails. This is the reply I left in the article's "comments" section.

Special House Committee to Begin Hearing on 'Stolen' Vote in 2007

"Tomorrow's hearing will begin to pull back the curtain on one of the most shameful chapters of this Congress: a stolen vote on the floor of the United States House of Representatives," House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) said yesterday.

Oh, Boehner's NOT talking about the GOP organized & engineered vote on Medicare Part D, the one the Republicans held open for over three hours until they got a vote switched after heavy pressure and outright threats?

If nothing else, as shown by it's fanatical, irrational loyalty to Bush Jr, the GOP has completely destroyed it's most cherished myths, including:

Being strong on fiscal discipline.

Being strong on defense.

Being "supporters" of the US Military.

Being strong on "personal accountability"-unless you're Lewis Libby, then you walk free for helping out a CIA covert agent whose focus was on Iran.

Favors "limited government", except for backing warrantless spying & datamining of US citizens while trying to keep the Executive Branch from well-deserved public hostility at the same time. And voting for federal intervention in the Terri Schiavo case kind of undercuts the "favors limited government" BS as well.

All the Republicans favorite talking points above no longer apply to the federal level GOP, their unreturned loyalty to Bush Jr has completely, permanently and utterly destroyed those now-debunked descriptions.

I'm not a fan of the Democrats-I'm an unaffiliated voter-but the GOP needs to have their noses rubbed in their own arrogant, corrupt, self-defeating messes they've inflicted on the US taxpayers, the next President and the rest of the world, to clean up.

If the GOP had stood up to Bush Jr, or stood for strong Congressional oversight of the Bush Jr Administration, then the party's requests wouldn't be so blatantly self-serving and hypocritical.

Since the Republicans know they're going to get destroyed at the voting booths this November, expect to hear "Strong Congressional Oversight Of The Executive Branch" become a GOP talking point.

Of course, those pushing that Republican meme can't be bothered with strong Congressional oversight of the Bush Jr Administration, but why would the GOP think logical consistency was a quality it's members embody?

When the GOP pushes for full, in-depth investigations into the 2000 & 2004 Presidential elections, only then should the party's claims over this particular House vote be investigated & supported.

The GOP has no moral or logical right to ever bad-mouth anybody else ever again, not after the anti-US, anti-Constitutional, extreme religious-driven agendas the Republicans pushed when they held all the power levers on Capitol Hill.
