Republicans are clashing in private, and even openly, over their entire agenda.
This is going to be an incredible Presidential race, if this year has been any indication. Merely for entertainment purposes because the GOP right now…whooo boy…y’all are funny.
It seems that right now the Republican party is going to war within itself over funding for disease research, arguing over an education bill and seem to be very divided on the possible renewal of the Export-Import Bank. On Wednesday night, House Republican leaders went to work on trying to pass the education measure, clearing it with no margin for error. Politico sums it up best by saying, “house GOP leaders face a collection of conservatives once again feeling emboldened by their ability to stifle the leadership’s agenda without retribution.” But more than that…I just do not see any intelligent, rational conservatives getting national attention.
Right now, we’ve been seeing a lot of Republicans reacting to gay marriage and the Confederate flag debate. It’s not just the ones running for Pres, a lot of regular civilians, normal U.S. citizens expressing their ignorance and how little they actually understand the Constitution.
For example, Mike Huckabee…why is he still a thing? You gotta read this quote he gave when gay marriage was made legal nationwide. “The Supreme Court has spoken with a very divided voice on something only the Supreme Being could do, redefine marriage. I will not acquiesce to an imperial court any more than our Founders acquiesced to an imperial British monarch,” Huckabee said. “We must resist and reject judicial tyranny, not retreat.”
Does anybody see the problem with what he just said? Mike just called for insurrection of the US government, it’s sedition, treason. Y’all go ahead and vote for him if you want. Comparing gay marriage to the imperial British monarch? Maybe if you stopped reading the Bible more than our Constitution, you might sound smarter.
And then there’s the serious, respectable candidate Donald Trump.
Would conservatives really respect Piyush “Bobby” Jindal if he went by his first name and was not Catholic or Christian? Well, they don’t really respect him now as is. Same goes for Ben Carson or any other minority – if you’re uber religious and hate gays, you’re cool.
Will the sane, progressive and rational Republicans please stand up?
