On behalf of Obviousconsin I have called this Press Conference to make the following statement..

I have pulled my entire budget off the table since Republicans are just going to attack me anyway for having the audacity to propose Republican ideas. Since Republicans are going to attack me for agreeing with them I have zero incentive to agree with them anymore.

I apologize. I don't know what I was thinking.

On the recommendation of my advisers I tried to put together a budget that would make Republicans happy so they would set aside their bizarre berserker hatred of everything I do in favor of trying to reduce the national deficit which was created by Republicans under the previous Administration. These advisers told me that if I tried to meet the GOP in the middle they would be reasonable.

That didn't happen. I have come to the conclusion that the Republican party simply can not be reasoned with.

So I have fired all of the advisers who insisted that I adopt Republican policies as a way of meeting the GOP in the middle, and I am taking my entire budget proposal off the table and replacing it with the exact opposite of every thing I just had in the last budget. MORE money for social security, MORE money for infrastructure, only cuts to our military budget and massive tax hikes on corporations which will only be lowered when unemployment goes down to 5% and wages begin to rise at the same rate that CEO salaries are growing.

Since Republicans are going to hate and oppose anything I try to do anyway I might as well give them a good reason to hate me. In fact I welcome their hatred.

Because the mindless hatred of Republicans who oppose even their own ideas for the sake of gumming up the system and preserving the broken status quo can not go on. Each and every citizen deserves better than what the Republican party is offering. And it is my job as pretend Governor of Obviousconsin to fight for that each and every day.

I apologize for this mistake and I hope we all learn something from this.

Thank you, and God Bless Obviousconsin

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
