Big business Republican donors are closing their checkbooks to the former Party of Big Business. First the Chamber of Commerce joined with the AFL-CIO to demand the end of the shutdown and end the debt ceiling debacle. Then Business Roundtable came out against the tactics of Ted Cruz and the teabaggers and the uber rich like the Koch boys. Yet somehow Jim Demint and his Heritage Foundation continue to support what some have called the Republican suicide caucus.
The Grand Ole Party is looking more and more like confused, leaderless panderers who don’t know who to pander to. The split in the party now is a chasm. No one knows how long that chasm will yawn, but for now you have radical right-wing Republican leaders like John Boehner and old Mitch mouthful of grits McConnell saying the shutdown and debt ceiling debacle were mistakes and won’t happen again. But former South Carolina hate monger Senator Jim DeMint, who now heads the Heritage Foundation, and adolescent idiot Ted Cruz want to run the same game all over again.
All this adds up to serious confusion, growing anger, and lack of confidence for our country’s former party of big business.
But now it is very clear that radical right-wing Republicans are rudderless with no clear vision.
Now it is way, way too soon to write the obituary for the Grand Ole Party. They’re too mean to die
But we need to hit ‘em while they’re down, reminding folks how treasonous the right-wing Republicans are. We need to remind our folks that the radical right-wing gutless and leaderless Republicans cost our country $24 billion in just a little over two weeks. We need to remind our folks over and over again that the Republican crazies further slowed an anemic recovery, took food out of the mouths of babes, laid off 100′s of 1000′s of federal workers, military civilian contractors, and shook the entire global financial community.
We gotta beat the shit out of these assholes in November of 2014 and again in 2016. Time to go hard on the internal enemies of our country.
