No this is not hyperbole. Like all Republicans, Romney hates America when we have a Democratic president. His recent shameless politicizing responding to the deaths of American ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and some of his staff starkly illustrates this hatred. Despite not even knowing the facts the Romney campaign gleefully lied and said that President Obama supported and apologized to the attackers.
So does Romney have the good sense to just tone down his attacks in a press conference today so he can at least seem a bit presidential? Of course not because everything is fair game when you hate the country under President Obama. He showed absolutely no respect for the fallen diplomats. Instead Romney glibly extended his attacks. Romney could not even contain his giddiness with the thought that this tragedy could help his candidacy. Here is a freeze frame of Romney showing his glee at the end of his news conference.
While Democrats after 911 showed President Bush massive support we all know if that same disaster happened with a Democratic President Republicans would immediately start playing the blame game. They blamed President Clinton for Al Qaeda attacks that were far less preventable because they were on foreign soil. In fact they blamed Clinton for the 911 attacks when he was not even president.
There is no question literally from day one the GOP has been conspiring against Obama to make him a one term president. The country be damned! In the eyes of the GOP not doing what is best for the citizens of this country is just collateral damage. We all know the troupe of men behaving badly including Paul Ryan met on the night of Obama’s inaguration to put party before country. They see America through a distorted prism that if the GOP is not in charge they are against America succeeding while a Democrat is in office.
The GOP argument is they still love the country but they just do not like the direction that Democrats are taking the country. This is another outright GOP lie. When Bush was in office people like Paul Ryan put their principles aside when they voted for two unfunded wars and even an unfunded expansion of a social program in Medicare Part D. Under Bush the GOP EXPANDED government by over 1.2 million government employees while claiming Obama is the statist even though he generally lessened the size of government. The GOP even goes against it’s really leader Grover Nordquist and is all of a sudden is against cutting taxes on the middle class only because Obama is for them.
As I have said before we are in a Cold Civil War in this country and like the Civil War under Lincoln there is a just and righteous side and a side that wants to tear America apart for the selfish and immoral ambitions.
