RNC defends “Status Quo” votes

This exclusive report was filed by our political reporter, Stacy Conundrum

A spokesperson for the RNC in a telephone interview defended the Republican Party Congressional position of opposing all Democratic actions.  “Look, we’re the loyal opposition.  It’s our job to say ‘No’ to the other party.  Besides, our position is to defend at all cost the status quo.  In our point of view, the glorious Bush administration reached new heights of important initiatives and we must defend against the ignorance of the Democrats who want to change that Bush legacy.  We are sworn enemies of all who want to inconvenience businesses like the banks and Wall Street with regulations that restrict their creativity.  The Democratic plan to hobble the medical insurance corporations is blatantly unfair to the corporations who must now issue policies on sick people. That is a preposterous regulation.  How can an insurer make profits if it has insure sick people?  And all those environmental regulations?   We will fight those who try to limit the profits of major corporations through silly laws like filling out safety and emergency plans before drilling new oil wells.

“On another Democratic initiative, we oppose tax increases on the wealthy because that could negatively impact our contributions from those wealth folks.

On the Bush Legacy:

“As you can see, our position isn’t simply being obstinate, it’s a defense of the status quo and a defense of President Bush’s legacy.

“We have a series of plans in place to continue that wonderful legacy as soon as we regain power.  We will lower taxes on corporations; we will eliminate these nonsensical regulations that limit the ingenuity of the corporate America.  We will celebrate the resurgence of the Bush-Cheney regime by offering a tax holiday to all citizens who make over a million dollars a year.  That will compensate them for the anguish they suffered worrying about what the Democrats would do to their excess earnings.”

On Corporate Donations:

When asked how much money the Party had received from corporations, the spokesperson replied, “The amount of money raised has been too small to be tabulated so I can’t answer your question.  This is a typical question from the liberal media. It constantly searches for the answers to nitpick questions that are of no interest to the Republican Party devotees.”

The Republican Grand Plan

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

When Bush was reelected in 2004, I pondered the implications of eight years of a Bush administration. That was when I perceived a possible long range plan of the Republicans.  My initial reaction was the plan was too preposterous to consider. To my intense disgust, recent events and polls show that the plan is working.

The Five-step program:

Basically, then plan consists of President Bush screwing the county in every way possible: economically, fiscally, militarily, diplomatically, environmentally.   Bush’s role was to screw things up so badly, a Democratic administration, indeed any administration would be incapable of fixing the mess in a single term. This is Phase A and it was a smashing success.

Phase B consists of the Republican members of Congress opposing any and all proposals of the Democratic administration without regard to the needs of the country. Phase B, now under way, is on track to success.

Phase C involves the interim elections in 2010. The Republicans castigate the Democrats for failing to solve the problems caused by Bush and then increase their number of seats making it even harder for the Democratic administration to fix Bush’s messes.

Phase D involves the Presidential election in 2012.  Here the Republicans espouse the total failure of the Democrats to fix Bush’s disasters.  They count on the forgetfulness (or the utter stupidity) of the voters to elect another Republican president.

Phase E involves the new Republican administration continuing the Grand Republican scheme of shredding the Constitution and changing out democracy to a white Christian theocracy.

For a glimpse of how this could work out, consult a history book and read up on the Religious Wars in Europe in the fifteen and sixteen hundreds.

Overall, I have to say the Republican Grand Plan is on track to become a success.  Unfortunately, it is a cynical power scheme that never considers the needs of the country or its people.  To the degree the Republican plan succeeds, America, with it’s great heritage and promise, will become some the Founding Fathers struggled to avoid.

Fight back.  Don’t vote for those candidates that follow this prescription for a national disaster.
