I guess this is an op-ed by me?

So I've been reading over Fred Thompson's comments about his desire for Pres. Obama to fail. So now we've got King Rush, Bobby Jindal, and Freddy on the list.

My question is: Where is Michele Bachmann in all this?!! Doesn't she want an investigation into this un-American behavior?!!

Of course not. Republicans only want success for their select few. We know that to be the foundation of their party. If you don't meet the Republican credentials, you shouldn't be allowed to succeed.

The only problem is that the list of Republican credentials is getting longer and longer and longer. Back before the Republican Party turned into the American Nazionalist Partei, level-headed Americans actually had a choice when it came to political affiliation. Now it has come down to Democrats, disenchanted Independents (usually Greens and *some* Libertarians), and the wackos who still call themselves Republicans.

I find it offensive that today's "Republicans" invoke names like Lincoln, Roosevelt, and (shudder) Dr. MLK. I am more than confident that if any of these gentlemen were alive today and happened to catch a snippet of FOX News their reaction would be: O-M-G. This reaction would be followed by a change in party registration.

I've been on pins and needles!

FINALLY we know how Congressman Marsha feels about Sec. Geithner...

Blackburn To Geithner: Time To Go

WASHINGTON- Yesterday Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN-7) appeared on The Fred Thompson Show and called on Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner to resign.

"I think that he has caused more problems than he has solved," Blackburn said on the nationally syndicated radio show. "I think he needs to go and it doesn't matter if the President wants to remove him or he wants to submit his resignation but Secretary Geithner needs to go."

Who woulda thought Rep. Blackburn would feel this way? No one! Unless you listened to Rush Limbaugh on Friday.

You go, boy. You go.

GOP blowhards offer nothing but obstructionism to problems
By Chip Forrester • March 11, 2009
The Tennessean

As I said in my recent acceptance speech for chairmanship of the Tennessee Democratic Party, I will not let attacks by the Tennessee Republican Party go unanswered.

For too long the Republican Party has had carte blanche to distort economic truths, spread racist falsehoods and go unchallenged in these blatant lies.

Now comes Republican Chairwoman Robin Smith (Tennessee Voices, March 7) condemning President Barack Obama and other thinking Democrats for launching attacks on the fervent, right-wing, talk-show ideologues of her party, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and even local blowhards Phil Valentine, Steve Gill and Michael DelGiorno.

The obvious point she misses is that, after eight misguided years of her president's disastrous economic and war policies that have left our nation in economic ruins, her party and these right-wing blowhards offer no solution to these problems except obstructionism — only three Republicans voted to support President Obama and Congress as they offered a plan to help save our country's failing economy.

And while her right-wing, elitist and extremist mouthpieces rail against the president and Democrats — providing no solutions, no vision and no answers — Democrats have stood up, however an imperfect solution, with answers to our nation's worsening economic crisis.

I've said that fair and honest policy debates are on the table for discussion. That is what we do in a democracy. However, shrill attacks that offer no solutions but just more of the same will not go unanswered.

Chairwoman Smith, you have become a "one-note" tunesmith. Your mantra has become nothing more than launching baseless attacks on those who are navigating us out of a crisis your president got us into. You tell us nothing about how you plan to help families who have lost their homes, factory workers who have lost their jobs as industries shut down, and single mothers who cannot afford health care for their children.

Once again, you have shown how bankrupt Republican economic policies have become and how little your party contributes to desperately needed solutions.

Now, when you are ready to talk about those issues, I'll meet you anywhere, anytime for civil, honest, open discourse in the tradition of our Founding Fathers, who grappled to forge the new nation they envisioned.

Somehow, I think I might be waiting a long time for your answer.

Chairwoman Smith, blow me.

Welcome to surreality!!! I'm Marsha Blackburn, and I'll be your guide.

Two of the Queens of Partisanship, Reps. Virginia Foxx and Marsha Blackburn are obviously still delusional... how else could they get in front of the camera and blabber the way they do?!!

Thanks for the innovative thinking, ladies.
