You know how bald long-haired hippy freak Democrats like me are always saying, “Republicans would vote against their own mother if they thought President Obama was for her”? Rachel Maddow has gleefully gone after the GOP for changing their position as soon as the president voices support. Even President Obama himself talks about it.
Well, today, Speaker John Boehner confirmed what the rest of us already knew: Republicans choose their sides on issues after they find out the president’s side. Then they choose the opposite.
A large number of conservative Republicans are opposing Boehner’s [budget] proposal, arguing it does not go far enough in reducing government spending.
But Boehner said he couldn’t understand why any Republicans would position themselves with Democrats opposing his plan.
“Barack Obama hates it, Harry Reid hates it, Nancy Pelosi hates it,” he said, naming off the Democratic leadership.
There you have it. What other reason does any Republican need? The top Democrats hate it so it must be good!
They don’t even try to hide this shit anymore. Shameless and harming America: that’s today’s Republican party.
