GOP continues to be a joke

I'll post more on the Non State of the Union sometime tomorrow after watching the speech again but had to put up something on the GOP tonight.

Has this party not learned anything? They keep coming up with one PR disaster after another. It wasn't bad enough that a sitting senator goes out and says that a sitting supreme court justice will die this year. Yes, you read that right. Here's the exact quote:

"Even though she was operated on, usually, nine months is the longest that anybody would live" with pancreatic cancer, said Bunning, a Hall-of-Fame major league pitcher, who has no medical background.
Yes...that is longtime Republican senator and Hall of Pitcher Jim Bunning.

Not to be outdone....was Richard Shelby. Republican senator out of Alabama. Somehow I guess he missed this when it came up during the campaign....or maybe he really is dumb enough to bring it up again.

“Well his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven’t seen any birth certificate,” Shelby said. “You have to be born in America to be president.”

To top it all off...let me direct you to the GOP response to President Obama's "Not State of the Union." Who wrote this speech? Who thought this was a good response? The quotes that came out of here were just mind boggling.

"Today in Washington, some are promising that government will rescue us from the economic storms raging all around us. Those of us who lived through Hurricane Katrina, we have our doubts."

Yes, that is a member of the Republican party criticizing the response to Hurricane Katrina.

"While some of the projects in the bill make sense, their legislation is larded with wasteful spending. It includes $300 million to buy new cars for the government, $8 billion for high-speed rail projects, such as a magnetic levitation line from Las Vegas to Disneyland, and $140 million for something called volcano monitoring."

For some reason he decided to continue with this Disneyland baloney when the stimulus bill makes no mention of it. I gotta read up on this Volcano monitoring....but if you replaced Volcano with Hurricane...would he be complaining? Would it stop being wasteful spending in that case?

"We need to bring transparency to Washington, D.C., so we can rid our capital of corruption"

Where was his call for transparency in Washington when members of the Bush administration were getting caught left and right?

I'll probably have more tomorrow as I watch both speeches again.

In closing real quick if you turn to Fox New's website...well take a look at the part I highlighted with the red rectangle....
