It is no wonder the Republican base and like-minded independents are furious, the GOP House leadership that is led by House Speaker Paul Ryan has stabbed everyone in the back. Again.
Obama got everything he wanted in the spending bill. Obamacare: fully funded. Planned Parenthood: fully funded. Sanctuary Cities: fully funded. And the list goes on and on. What's the difference between John Boehner and Paul Ryan? Absolutely nothing.
Rush Limbaugh had a great monologue on this. He nailed it!
He began with:
RUSH: The country was just sold down the river again by your very Republican Party.
I have a headline here from the Washington Times: "White House Declares Total Victory Over GOP in Budget Battle." That headline's a misnomer. There was never a battle. None of this was opposed. The Republican Party didn't stand up to any of it, and the die has been cast for a long time on this. I know many of you are dispirited, depressed, angry, combination of all of that. But, folks, there was no other way this could go. Because two years ago when the Republican Party declared they would never do anything that would shut down the government and they would not impeach Obama, there were no obstacles in Obama's way and there were no obstacles in the way of the Democrat Party.What's the point in having an opposition party when they become wimps and don't oppose? They were elected to oppose the status quo in Washington, but they are to scared to even try. Small wonder "establishment Republicans" are doing terribly in the presidential contest.
I am almost ready to decide whom I will be supporting for the GOP presidential nomination. One thing is for certain, it won't be an establishment Republican. I, for one, am fed up with them. They have betrayed us and I will be doing what I can to defeat them.
