Another great letter from Frank Schaeffer, who supported Pres. Obama and I posted about before. After appearing on DL Hughley's show he decided he needed to address the Republicans directly so he wrote them a letter. I have to wonder if they can read it though, since it is written in plain English.
You Republicans are the arsonists who burned down our national home. You combined the failed ideologies of the Religious Right, so-called free market deregulation and the Neoconservative love of war to light a fire that has consumed America. Now you have the nerve to criticize the "architect" America just hired -- President Obama -- to rebuild from the ashes. You do nothing constructive, just try to hinder the one person willing and able to fix the mess you created.
See, plain English, pulls no punches...lol I love the part where he says, "You do nothing constructive, just try to hinder the one person willing and able to fix the mess you created". Isn't that the truth? Not only that but the media seems determined to assist in this lately.
President Obama has been in office barely 45 days and the Republican Party has the nerve to blame him for the economic and military cataclysm he inherited. I say economic and military cataclysm because without the needless war in Iraq you all backed we would not be in the economic mess we're in today. If that money had been spent here at home on renovating our infrastructure, taking us toward a green economy, putting our health-care system in order we'd be a very different situation.
Again, he really puts it out there and lets them have it.. looks like he knows of what he speaks, doesn't he? He says in the letter he removed himself from the rolls of the Republican Party in 2000, and re-registered as an Independent. All because of W. Boy, that can say a lot can't it...and that was before he even started destroying the country....lol
Just imagine where America would be today if the 14 to 20 million voters -- "the rube base" who slavishly follow the likes of Limbaugh -- had not voted as a block year after year thus empowering the Republican fiasco. We would have a regulated banking industry and would have avoided our current financial crisis; some 4000 of our killed military men and women would be alive; over to 35,000 wounded Americans would be whole; we would have been leaders in the environmental movement; we would be in the middle of a green technology boom fueling a huge expansion of our economy and stopping our dependence on foreign oil, and our health-care system would be reformed.
Wow.. what else needs to be said.. well just maybe one other little point that he might like to make here.
The worsening economic situation is your fault and your fault alone. The Republicans created this mess through 8 years of backing the worst president in our history and now, because you put partisan ideology ahead of the good of our country, you have blown your last chance to redeem yourselves. You deserve the banishment to the political wilderness that awaits all traitors.
The rest is just as good. If you didn't see his appearance on DL Hughley, it is on here or it is part of this link at HuffPost, which is linked to this. It is really a great watch. Even though Frank Schaeffer was raised as part of the religious right, he is still a wonderful spokesperson for Pres. Obama.
He has seen the error of the ways of the Republicans and is calling them out on it and is willing to speak openly and loudly to them and to everyone about it. As you can see he pulls no punches. It's about time someone tells the truth to these liars.
