Credit Where None Is Due: Epic Fails Become Wins For GOP

Banks create biggest financial crash since Depression, receive $700+ billion in taxpayer-funded bailout, subsequently cease all lending while raising credit card interest rates/fees to record levels!

President Obama extends war in Afghanistan to include relentless drone-bomber strikes on Pakistan, receives Nobel Peace Prize!

Supreme Court credits Corporations with ‘personhood’, human beings credited with colluding in ending Constitutional government and rule of law.

After Democrats FAIL to get their bill through Congress, the GOP plans to take credit for passing a [stripped down, worthless] healthcare bill!

Osama Bin Laden is taking ‘credit’ for the Nigerian Underwear (FAILED) Bomber!

Pat Robertson gives Satan credit for earthquake in Haiti! (The Devil’s power is awesome! God, not so much.)

Nude Cosmo Boy Scott Brown takes credit for winning Massachusetts Senate Seat!

But credit where credit is due. President Obama and his administration could have prevented the rewrite of history, where Moron-In-Chief George W. Bush evades responsibility for the misdirected trillion-dollar war in Iraq and the world-crippling financial crisis, where Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney walk away from the abominations of CIA-directed Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo and Bagram torture prisons, where being in power means never having to say you’re sorry. Had there been any sense of the urgency, of the dire need to restore the ‘reality-based universe’ and vanquish the lords of misrule that had so completely taken over the United States government, the Obama administration could have been the ones to do it – that’s over now.

President Obama will not even get to return to square one. Squandering his political credibility in one short year, he and his party will be fighting an uphill battle against such ridiculous opponents as the Teapartiers, Sarah Palin, and Glenn Beck, while their puppetmasters – sinister old pros like Gingrich and Kristol, cynical strategists like Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham, looking exactly like hypocrite televangelists, and their pawns, like the hapless Michael Steele and ‘Blue Dog’ Democrats like Bart Stupak – are working non-stop to destroy America so they can save it – for themselves. Rallying what they call the “real” America, the backwards-looking America of racism and sexism, the America in thrall to would-be terrorists who’s most powerful threat is as a tool in the hands of a ruthless GOP that wants back in to power at whatever cost, these political predators have all but ended the era of freedom and liberty. These are the elements, the dregs of American society, who are now saying “Yes We Can”, and selling “hope” to an angry, stupid mob. They are claiming the political credit that President Obama needlessly wasted on the self-indulgent folly of “bipartisanship”, thwarting the will of the people who elected him with a huge majority. It didn’t have to be this way, but unless Obama leaves his ivory tower and does some history making of his own, it’s only going to get worse.

    I don’t think it’s Obama’s fault that Pelosi, Reid & Co are a bunch of tools, but since the buck stops with him he is responsible for Congress’ failures. Kinda sucks to be him, but you’re right, he’s not doing much about it.

    Second… I thought the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded for the bombing campaign against the Moon?

    And where’s Joe Biden? Hiding out with Dick Cheney in his secret underground bunker?
