Republicans Keep Admitting Everything They Said About Obama Was a Lie

White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, appearing on Fox News Sunday, repeated the official administration line that Democrats had to choose between legislation and investigation. Chris Wallace reminded Mulvaney that he had supported a Republican Congress that had engaged in continuous investigations of the White House, reopening probes to chase conspiracy theories even after they had been conclusively debunked.

This prompted Mulvaney to make an interesting confession. The Republican Congress never wanted to pass laws in the first place:

WALLACE: You were there, of what the Republicans did to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on Benghazi, on Fast and Furious. And they got some things done despite the fact that these were aggressive partisan investigations.

MULVANEY: Well, we didnít get very much done. Listen, Iíll be the first to admit that when the tea party wave, of which I was one, got here in 2011, the last thing we were interested in was giving President Obama legislative successes.

When somebody says ďIíll be the first to admit,Ē itís usually an idiom, suggesting they are not trying to hide a fact that is widely known and frequently confessed. But in this case the sentence construction makes more sense if read literally. Mulvaney may actually be the first person to admit that congressional Republicans did not want to give Obama any legislative successes at all.

2. The gop allowed the teabaggers to fester

 

"Iíll be the first to admit that when the tea party wave, of which I was one, got here in 2011, the last thing we were interested in was giving President Obama legislative successes."

Deplorables was a compliment. These people are despicable.

The gop caved in to the teabaggers using them to control the political process until the teabaggers took over the gop.

Now the gop is beholden to trump whom the teabaggers revere as a deity. It's a cult worthy of Jonestown and even though this may sound kind of cruel I kinda' hope the gop ends the same way. That would truly make America great again, IMO.

They, like Oedipus, are the disease in their nation they seek to cure.
