It seems I write the same things over and over again because the Republican pattern repeats indefinitely. It's OK when we do it or say it or demand it, it's anti-American, tyrannical, too little, too late, too much, too soon when they do it. Even if Republicans invented it or pioneered it or used it until yesterday it's different when "they" do it.
How long ago was it that John McCain and Fox News
and the rest of the merry bunch made a circus act with all three rings
full of how Obama is a "tyrant" for appointing all those Czars? "More
Czars than the Romanovs," tweets the funny man. So where's the big red nose and oversize pants when John McCain tells us that hapless weakling Obama isn't appointing the Czars we need? That's right, John McCain has joined Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), sponsor of H.R. 3226
(111th): Czar Accountability and Reform (CZAR) Act of 2009 in
condemning the administration for this egregious failure, invoking the
"if it's bad, it's Obama" clause in the Party rules. 2009 is when George
W. Bush left office -- just coincidentally -- and of course George had
33 of them, but let's keep that quiet.
Of course there's no public office with the title Czar on
the door as far as I know. It's a media epithet that began in the 1940s
and of course there's nothing unconstitutional about the President
appointing "other public ministers" no matter how much they chuckle and
chortle and lie in the Fox newsroom.
history and public record never seems to have much effect on the magic
thinkers and pea-brained partisans of any stripe. The public's eyes are
always on the jugglers and clowns and what they're doing now, not what
they did ten seconds ago.
"No one knows who's in charge," says McCain, his face revealing nothing of how his party, with the help of the NRA
has blocked the nomination of a Surgeon General, an office designed to
take control and coordinate the process of informing the country of
what's being done. Yes, the NRA, because the Surgeon General might just
get involved in gun policy. Can't have that. Better a plague than risk
a gun grabber liberal doctor commie near our weapons. Better this
country perish from the earth.
