I pledge allegiance to the GOP Pledge?...or not

Trying to pull off another 1994, the Republicans have come up with 21 pages of the GOP’s “Pledge to American,” which isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on…at least in any relationship to substance. Bubba Boehner’s manifesto says they are listening to an angry America. Apparently they didn’t hear what Americans are saying since there are no real specifics in the “Pledge.”

Same old, same old…cut taxes and spending, reduce government regulation, but uh oh, there is a new one. Repeal President Barack Obama’s health care law. All three of which many savvy economists, political experts and medical industry professionals have said we need. Republicans are attempting to make the midterms all about Obama’s failures, all of which they are partially responsible for in saying no to everything the man proposes.

What really frosts The Dunning Letter is how they call the current administration arrogant and out-of-touch. The GOP are the followers and supporters of what was considered the most totalitarian presidency in U.S. history, George W. Bush. Along with his minion, Vice President Dick Cheney, arrogance saw no limits. It’s still going on with disdainful Dick, although, thankfully, he has been quieted lately.

The latest Associated Press-GfK poll shows that of the total population, 75 percent disapprove of how Congress is doing its job. But that’s with 68 percent disapproving of Republicans, and only 60 percent disapproving of Democrats. Now does that mean the current surge in GOP support is only for the sake of change?

President Obama and the Democrats have had only two tedious and terribly demanding years to get something done. George W. Bush had eight and look what happened.

Tomorrow, more on the “Pledge.”
