Republicans In DC Need To Stop Whining
I’m already sick of hearing Republicans in DC whine because the Democrats aren’t including them in discussions. I’m sure they care a great deal about that, but nobody else in America does. If you don’t like how they’re treating you, vote against what they’re doing in a block and make them respect you instead of publicly crying about it.
PS: The only thing dumber than a Republican politician whining about how the Democrats are being mean to you is a Republican politician whining about Rush Limbaugh — like Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Ga.,
“I think that our leadership, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, are taking the right approach,” Gingrey said. “I mean, it’s easy if you’re Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh or even sometimes Newt Gingrich to stand back and throw bricks. You don’t have to try to do what’s best for your people and your party. You know you’re just on these talk shows and you’re living well and plus you stir up a bit of controversy and gin the base and that sort of that thing. But when it comes to true leadership, not that these people couldn’t be or wouldn’t be good leaders, they’re not in that position of John Boehner or Mitch McConnell.”
Thank God for everyone who throws bombs at the GOP leadership, including Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and Newt Gingrich — and may I add, Jim DeMint — because it’s the only thing that keeps our “leaders” — such as they are — from simply capitulating to whatever the Democrats want to do.
When the Republican Party starts regularly acting like Republicans again, instead of lickspittles for socialism, they won’t have to worry about all the “bricks” coming from their own side. A more savvy politician than Phil Gingrey would recognize that fact and try to figure out how to please the base and the people who truly represent what they want, instead of complaining because conservatives aren’t seeing the sheer “wonderfulness” of John Boehner and even worse, Mitch McConnell.
