But once the midterms of 2014 were history, and the GOP was rewarded with big majorities, they went back listening to Karl Rove and the special interests like the US Chamber of Commerce instead of the voters.
Tonight, they told the voters who sent them to DC to go to Hell, after Ted Cruz, one of the few in DC who has an ounce of courage, forced them to put up or shut up on their promises.
But too many in the GOP betrayed you, me, and all of America, no too long ago this evening, by siding with Obama on his unconstitutional amnesty.
Use this list to Name them and Shame Them....
Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), John Barrasso (R-WY), Dan Coats (R-IN), Thad Cochran (R-MS), Susan Collins (R-ME), Bob Corker (R-TN), John Cornyn (R-TX) Mike Enzi (R-WY), Jeff Flake (R-AZ) Lindsey Graham-nesty (R-SC), Orrin Hatch (R-UT) Dean Heller (R-NV), Ron Johnson (R-WI) Mark Kirk (R-IL), John McCain (R-AZ), Mitch "Seen My Balls" McConnell (R-KY), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Roger Wicker (R-MS).These so-called "Republicans" put their own egos and self-interest above those of the nation and the Constitution they swore an oath to defend. In my opinion, they are bigger traitors to this nation than Obama, because when push came to shove, they chose NOT to stand up to his lawlessness and unconstitutional amnesty.
Oh, but next year, they'll fight! Spare me that nonsense. That was always the cowardly drunk John Boehner's excuse when it came to explaining every time he surrendered to Obama. Next time would be different. What happens? Next time comes around it's the same old game. But many of these blowhards will campaign and fundraise off stopping Obamacare and amnesty and don't have the will to fight it.
The same goes for Reince Priebus and the RNC. Stopping Obamacare and amnesty is only a fundraising ploy. They have shown their true colors tonight. This GOP only listens to what Karl Rove and the special interests, who buy them like the cheapest trick on a street corner. tell them to do, All while the rest of us get screwed in the process, and a little more of what was once the America we love is squandered away for political expediency by a Congressional leadership of a gutless eunuch in the Senate and a sobbing drunk in the House.
As far as I'm concerned, if this GOP and it's leadership cannot or will not stand up to a dictatorial chief executive, they can all go to Hell, and until the day that this putrid leadership in the House, Senate and Party level is flushed out, I have zero confidence in them to do anything that deserves them having power.
