My Comment Concerning A Superb Obama Citation On Friend Tarantino's Facebook Page

Eight years this ignorant white trash Kentucky U.S. Senator Mitch Bitch McConnell didn't learn a damn thing except he knows now his a moron. Remember when Mitch McConnell bragged about not his doing his job? McConnell has made obstructing the Obama administration his personal life’s mission. Now, President Obama has spoken out on his feelings about the way McConnell and his republican buddies in congress have treated him these last 8 years. Here’s what President Obama had to say in a NY Mag interview:

“By that point it was pretty apparent by his actions that it was already [McConnell’s] No. 1 goal. He validated what I think most of this town knew. When I came into office, my working assumption was that because we were in crisis, and the crisis had begun on the Republicans’ watch, that there would be a window in which they would feel obliged to cooperate on a common effort to dig us out of this massive hole. On the drive up to Capitol Hill to meet with the House Republican Caucus, John Boehner released a press statement saying that they were opposed to the stimulus. At that point we didn’t even actually have a stimulus bill drawn up, and we hadn’t meant to talk about it. And I think we realized at that point what proved to be the case in that first year and that second year was a calculation based on what turned out to be pretty smart politics but really bad for the country: If they cooperated with me, then that would validate our efforts. If they were able to maintain uniform opposition to whatever I proposed, that would send a signal to the public of gridlock, dysfunction, and that would help them win seats in the midterms. It was that second strategy that they pursued with great discipline. It established the dynamic for not just my presidency but for a much sharper party-line approach to managing both the House and the Senate that I think is going to have consequences for years to come.

As a consequence, there were times that I would meet with Mitch McConnell and he would say to me very bluntly, “Look, I’m doing you a favor if I do any deal with you, so it should be entirely on my terms because it hurts me just being seen photographed with you.” Obama went on to say, “During the health-care debate, you know, there was a point in time where, after having had multiple negotiations with [Iowa senator Chuck] Grassley, who was the ranking member alongside my current Chinese ambassador, [Max] Baucus, in exasperation I finally just said to Grassley, “Is there any form of health-care reform that you can support?” and he shrugged and looked a little sheepish and said, “Probably not.”” Mitch McConnell is a cancer to Washington that needs to be removed. He’s an obstructionist in every sense of the word. Doing what’s best for Americans is not even on McConnell’s radar. He only cares about Republicans winning no matter the cost. Simple as that. I’m glad Obama has called him out on it finally.

Remember when Mitch McConnell bragged about not his doing his job? McConnell has made obstructing the Obama administration his personal life’s…

Alan Archibald Obama's account of McConnell, Grassley (and other reprehensible Republicans) is incontrovertible.

Increasingly, I find it difficult to contemplate American "conservatism" without the word "evil" coming to mind.

The GOP's deliberate, calculating destructiveness -- brought to climax by Trump/Bannon's strategic "deconstructionism" -- is a work-in-progress or, more accurately, a work-in-regress. Satan himself would be green with envy.

Republican presidential candidate, Pat Buchanan, the living American who has served longest as a White House senior staff adviser, observed: “The Republican philosophy might be summarized thus: To hell with principle; what matters is power, and that we have it, and that they do not.” “Where the Right Went Wrong"

Despite the droning bafflegab about their "godly principles," "conservatives" -- as demonstrated by electing The Deplorable One -- will, without hesitation, send principle to Hell.

American "conservatives" are essentially fearful people, and to shield themselves from their ravaging self-terrorization, they will ally with anyone... Putin, Duterte - Satan "himself." (Remarkably, while Trump brown noses the most despicable dictators on earth, he bludgeons America's proven allies. WTF?!?!?)

Back in 2012, conservative think-tanker Norman Ornstein had the balls - and the insight - to identify the root of Republican evil: "Let's Just Say It. The Republicans Are The Problem" 

I hope your conservative readers will tell me where my analysis goes wrong.
