The GOP: Keeping Millions of Americans Out of Jobs So They Can Get One Man To Lose His

via Angry Black Lady Chronicles:

Interviewer: Harry Reid said yesterday, and frankly we’ve heard this from a lot of Democrats, the Republicans oppose the jobs bill for political reasons, that it helps them if the economy stays in bad shape. But, is that fair?

Sanchez: Well, it certainly is fair. I mean, I’ve heard my own colleagues on the Republican side say, “We just want to make Obama look so bad. We don’t care how bad the economy gets. We can win this election, we want our president –”

Interviewer: You’ve heard them say that?

Sanchez: Yes. They have said that. They’ve said that! They’ve said that behind closed doors to me! They said, “Nothing is moving.” They said, “We want to make him look bad. We want to get rid of him. We want to get rid of the health care reform bill.” They only way they believe they can get rid of health care reform is to get rid of President Obama.

Interviewer: Who is saying that, Congresswoman?

Sanchez: Well, I’m not gonna … these are actual friends on the other side who have said, “This is what is happening in our conference”, in their groupings when they’re meeting.

Representative Sanchez, you should have named names. Those GOPers are NOT your friends, they are fiends.

And we, of course, have known this ever since Senator McConnell admitted it a long time ago.

Imagine putting a party back in charge of government whose single most important goal is to unseat a sitting president.  I wouldn't trust them with changing my pet gerbil's  wood shavings. 

Perhaps that's why so many conservatives support the incompetents leading the GOP presidential nomination race.  They want to prove that government is incapable of doing anything right; and if one of their bumbling contenders makes it into the WH, they could watch their belief come true.

Here's a question I would love to address to the GOP minions...

Would you be pleased, or unhappy, if President Obama's ideas for fixing the economy worked?
