Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) makes air quotes as she talks about
Because "reasons"
It's fundraising season, by which I mean a month in a year with numbers in it, and so House Republicans are sending out their usual frothing letters. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA 5th District) appears to be exceptionally frothy these days:
“This is a Democrat [sic] party that has no interest in working with Republicans — one that’s openly hostile to American values and the Constitution,” said McMorris Rodgers, a member of the House Republican Leadership.

McMorris Rodgers did not identify which “American values” to which her Democratic colleagues, including eight in the Washington delegation, are hostile.

Sure she did. The president keeps doing things, and the Democrats keep not working with the Republic Party to do other things. Which is un-American because Cathy McMorris Rodgers says so.
“Just look at President Obama’s actions on Obamacare and immigration — he has been using unprecedented executive power to rule by decree:  The Left will stop at nothing to achieve their goals,” added McMorris Rodgers.
Oh, definitely. The way the president delayed something instead of bowing to Republican demands to delay something else, that's, um, tyranny and stuff. And to think we were worked up about little stupid things like torturing people and promoting faked evidence to justify wars and signing statements that officially declared White Houses did not have to follow any American laws they didn't like so long as they had a lawyer who told them they didn't have to. President Obama delayed a thing.

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.
