The ugliness of the GOP really is sickening...and yes, it is because they hate Obama, and they hate

him because he is black! This Ukraine situation proves it to me!

1. That's pretty much what it all boils down to IMO. And, they love to hate ... blacks, Mexicans,

women, LGBT, science, progress, democracies, freedom, civil rights, other countries, nationalities ... you name it and they've got some serious hatred for it. I'm often dismayed the republican party continues as a political party in the US, as it indicates just how hateful many people are. No matter what one does, it seems, about 50% of the population has some serious hatred for you.

2. Their hate goes beyond a black president

It's embedded in their soul. They'll claim to be Christians until that philosophy disagrees with their pocketbooks.
I truly see the republicans as narcissistic idiotic fools who feel one way and act another.

so pervasive with them, it's freaky. Just about everything they support, promote, push on people is about hatefulness, persecution and rolling over people. I often find it a bit scary that so many people still support the GOP. To me, the main intent of the GOP is to undermine and bring down the US.

"In the living years"........... hatred is hand and glove for the money bunch - it keeps everyone else distracted. Reagan institutionalized hatred (he didn't instigate it, but made sure with the "Christian" right, it was going to be there); the RW war machine pumped it up since then. I worked a temp job on a local US Army post. Every kid there (and they were KIDS, not adults) was subjected to RW Xtian ideology. And too uneducated - not stupid, no lack of intelligence - but basically uneducated to deal with it.

38. their father was a founding member of the John Birch Society AND

the sons are founding members of the Tea Party ... in 2002! (The Tea Party is not 5 years old.)

The Tea Party sprung up spontaneously in 2009, so the Tea Party tells itself. But its truth is much older, as the screenshot above shows us. Found in 2002, by the lobbying group, Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE), the US Tea Party was the first attempt to start a “grassroots movement” against the US Government, as you can see through Archive.org’s WayBackMachine here. But who was backing the Tea Party back in 2002? Would you believe Big Tobacco and the Koch Brothers?

19. You know.....

 

I really can't understand their thought processes.

I live in a county that votes 90% Republican. We don't even HAVE a Dem party in this county.

Yet, within months of an election, the hate they put out on all their local pages looks exactly like the garbage we see every day about Obama or any Democrat. Against the very people THEY elected.

Look at this example of what I'm talking about, but remember these people are ALL Republicans who voted for these Republicans. There wasn't even a Democrat on any ticket in the county. Qualifying is underway this week and there won't be a Democrat on any ballot in the county; and there hasn't been one on the ballot in GENERATIONS - the Mayor of the city has been in office 47 years. With that in mind, take a gander at this local county facebook page (if you can stand the outright hate and nastiness):

While that's an honest issue, and very valid, making it JUST about racism lets them off the hook for their hatred.

Not just their hatred for Obama, but their hatred for the poor, their hatred for the 'least of us' and their constant, unrelenting desire to crush those people.

When we make it JUST about racism, we let them off the hook for all the rest.

They say Reagan was a bi-partisan President. Bill Clinton was a bi-partisan President. If Teapublicans, Republicans had worked with President Obama we'd have had a Bill Clinton economy.

There was an episode of "The West Wing" where a political consultant (played by the late Ron Silver) was proposing that the President come out in support of a flag-burning law that had been proposed in Congress. Toby, as you can imagine, was utterly opposed to going along, even if it was good politics.

Consultant: You think I'm the devil, don't you?

56. It wasn't Ron Silver. It was John DeLancie.

That episode took place in the first season. Ron Silver, as Bruno Gianelli, showed up as Bartlet's re-election campaign manager, in the third season. Gianelli, although a hard-hitting political pragmatist, was also reliably progressive, and despised the trend of Democrats turning right in order to win elections. A sentiment not shared by the once-staunchly Democratic Ron Silver. He did a hard lurch to the right after September 11th, and never came back from that before he died. Shame. He was a terrific actor.

John Delancie was playing a DLC advisor trying to drag Bartlet to the right in support of a flag-burning amendment. That's when the confrontation you mentioned happened.

Sorry. I just had to weigh in. I'm a walking West Wing wiki.

47. where was the outrage when Bush was president and Russia went into Georgia ...

Media, GOP forget Bush's feeble response to Russia-Georgia conflict





Jon Perr
March 3, 2014

Proving once again that politics no longer ends at the water's edge, Republican leaders and many in the media have been lambasting President Obama's response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. While the Washington Post editorial board charged that Obama's foreign policy is "based on fantasy," Senator John McCain and his Mini-Me Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called President Obama "feckless" and "weak and indecisive," an approach which "invites aggression."

Predictably, the memories of the administration's critics are short. After all, President Bush didn't roll back the Russian occupation of South Ossetia and Abkhazia after Vladimir Putin's battering of Georgia in August 2008. Bush didn't lead an alliance of the willing to isolate Russia, undermine its economy, mine the Black Sea, provide defense guarantees and rush American military supplies to Tblisi. Instead, Dubya simply denounced Moscow's reaction using much the same language President Obama is deploying now.

48. Sarah Palin didn't question Bush's leadership when Putin sent forces into Georgia

Palin: Obama wears ‘mom jeans’ while Putin wrestles bears and drills for oil

Palin also expressed her admiration for the Russian leader and the masculine self-image he projects in comparison to President Barack Obama.

“Obama, the perception of him and his ‘potency’ across the world is one of such weakness,” she said. “Lookit: People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil, they look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates. We are not exercising that peace through strength that only can be brought to you courtesy of that red, white, and blue that only the strength of the United States military can do.”

She encouraged the U.S. president to take some sort of symbolic action against Putin.

“Obama instead has chosen to adopt this M.O. of ‘lead from behind,’ whatever the heck that means, I mean, because the rest of the world, looking for that shining city on a hill, looking for that country in which – that they can emulate – they’re not seeing that anymore, or in America because Obama’s weak leadership, leading from behind, which makes absolutely no sense,” Palin said.

53. Obama is just one of their more recent excuses.

They would be stonewalling any other Democratic president to precisely the same extent (though their excuses might need to be a touch more imaginative).

57. Aside from the Ukraine situation and their apparent Putin worship

their level of ferocity towards repealing/undermining/sabotaging ACA in Congress and throughout red states is what really upsets and sickens me. It's one thing to me for them to disagree with it and want to change it more to their liking (though they clearly have a dearth of ideas about how to do it differently) but the way that they are taking all kinds of steps/measures to prevent people from accessing it (i.e. harassing Navigators, refusing Medicaid expansion). They can't just accept that ACA is established law and sanctioned by SCOTUS and learn how to live with it (or just be miserable with it), which is fine, but they shouldn't be allowed to deprive other people of their right to access available services/opportunities if they want to.
