Why do Republicans Desperately need President Obama
and the Democratically controlled Congress to fail?
February 22, 2009
President Obama has been President for barely
He is facing a Crisis equal if not greater that the
Crisis Bush faced after 9/11.
After 9/11 the country unified behind President Bush
and gave him almost unanimous support to deal
with the crisis. It was about country first, not party.
Yet even BEFORE President Obama took office
Republicans, their surrogates and the press have
ridiculed and second guessed EVERYTHING
President Obama has done.
President Obama has asked for input from all corners because
he NEEDS the help of ALL AMERICANS to deal with
this crisis the same way ALL AMERICANS rallied behind
President Bush on 9/11.
Republicans instead of offering their advice and then understanding
that they DO NOT HAVE THE FINAL SAY on what Obama
decides and backing him in a unified effort to deal with the
economic problems are instead ridiculing every decision and
proclaiming failure before the ink is even dry on the BILLS leaving
The Country is facing multiple crisis of which any one could
create disaster for America and Americans. Yet the Republicans
seem hell bent on being obstructionists, and adding to the chaos.
Because the simple fact is that if Obama and the Democratic
lead Congress fixes the many problems left behind by the
Republican controlled Congress and Republican Administration
it will CONFIRM and VALIDATE that the Republicans were
irresponsible and incompetent during the years they had Majority
Control in the Government.
Republicans are not thinking about the Country or American
people first, they are thinking about the REPUBLICAN party
The American people said 'we want change' and that change was
to let the Democrats run things. That Republicans no longer get
to demand it is 'their way or the highway', yet this is
still how they are governing.
The Republicans use the guise of they are the Minority party
and their job is to oppose the Democrats. The problem is the
Country is on the brink of a monumental collapse and this is
a time for cooperation, NOT opposition. So why do it?
Because for the Republican Party to be of consequence again
in the future, the Republican party needs the President and the
Democratic controlled Congress to fail. If the Democrats do fail,
then the Republicans can say " see this wasn't our fault NO ONE
could have prevented this from happening.
However if President Obama and the Democratically controlled Congress
succeeds, it only emphasises that not only did the Republicans not
acknowledge the crisis as they arose but even after they finally admitted
the problem they did nothing to remedy the problem either through
ignorance or incompetence.
So do not be fooled by the insincere arguments that Republicans
are trying to be bipartisan and want to help. They have an agenda,
and that agenda is for the failure of the Democrats, even if it destroys
the Country in the process.
