T-GOP: Deeply Conflicted, Confused and Hysterical

Oh, the poor dears.

Another example of the deeply conflicted, confused and hysterical T-GOPers as they deal with their fictional construct of a president whom they claim is a weak, ineffective tyrannical dictator.  

They need to find a self-help program, asap, that can bring them safely back from the pit of insanity they so happily wallow in:

"Boehner Encourages Obama To Take Executive Action, One Day After Voting To Sue Obama Over It 

(vis Think Progress) 

"Hours before Congress broke for the August recess, House Republicans claimed that the President could use executive action to fix the border situation with unaccompanied children fleeing violence in the Central American countries of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. In a press statement released Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and other House Republican leaders indicated that President Obama could address the crisis “without the need for congressional action,” a statement tinged with some irony given that just the day before, House Republicans had slammed the President with a lawsuit claiming executive overreach. 

 'This situation shows the intense concern within our conference – and among the American people – about the need to ensure the security of our borders and the president’s refusal to faithfully execute our laws,' the House Republican leadership press release stated. 'There are numerous steps the president can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action, to secure our borders and ensure these children are returned swiftly and safely to their countries.' "

Here is a perfect comment on these poor besotted folks who have lost what was left of their minds after Mr. Obama was elected to the presidency for the second time:

"Mr. President, please take some executive action. We can't do anything in Congress because we're too busy suing you for taking some executive action. And we need you to take executive action so we have more we can sue you for." 

 The only people who don't see this as completely nuts are the people who are on board with the GOP agenda -- to discredit the President any way possible. American people be d*mned. Refugee children be d*mned. The world be d*mned. Nothing is more important than lowering the President's approval ratings and trashing his legacy."

Here I thought the Know Nothing Party had expired years ago....

This is a new form of that party, BB-Idaho.

It should be know at the (e^{i \pi} = -1) Party.

It seems an impossibility to know less than nothing, but they are negative, aren't they.

They can't remember what they say or do one day to the next. I think that is one of the definitions of insanity.

I do believe it has approached the theatre, ah, Congross of the absurd. Moderates are staying away in droves.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Jerry, or they really don't believe in anything except their deranged hatred of Mr. Obama.

okjimm: "I do believe it has approached the theatre, ah, Congross of the absurd. Moderates are staying away in droves."

The extremists on the fringe truly believe Americans agree with them and their all hate all the time agenda. That's why they're on the fringe -- they don't see the world as others who live in the real world.

I never thought I'd live to witness them fawning over a Communist (Putin) while at the same time calling an American President a "Commie."

Another blatant piece of evidence of their cracked thinking.

They love the real Commie and hate the American they call Commie/Socialist.

Whew! That's some real weirdness.

I've had plenty of years of trying to listen and understand fringe conservatism, with facing off with them and with libertarians as well for that matter.

And it's a total waste of time in terms of trying to persuade them of anything. The only purpose of arguing with them is to expose their nonsense to any intelligent observers who may be present. But nothing you or I can say will get through to the conservatives. I've never seen it happen.

Rational Nation USA said...

Yep, the theatre of it all...

I think all we need to examine is Ted Cruz going over to take charge of the House during the immigration debate to realize that the cuckoo bananas are in control and any sane conservative realizes there is a metastasizing cancer on the Republican Party.

What this theatre tells us is that both sides are not equally guilty (or quilty).
