G.O.P. Is The Party Of “No” (Solutions, Plans, Ideas etc.)

Everyone loves to watch a solid smackdown now and again. That is exactly what Meet The Press‘ usually milquetoast David Gregory gave to Republicans John Cornyn and Pete Sessions last Sunday. He asked both members of the G.O.P. to provide specific measures by which Republicans would address our nations deficit and other recessionary problems. Neither Cornyn nor Sessions could provide any specific actions that the G.O.P. would take. Gregory did not let them get away with their evasion. He kept repeating his question until it was evident that neither idiot could provide a specific answer. The best example of Republican ineptitude was revealed when John Cornym stated that the G.O.P. could not detail its specific actions without help from the Democratic Presidential Debt Commission. In other words, he said that the Republicans could not come up with any solutions of their own without first hearing the recomendations of President Obama’s commission. Priceless!

But, a picture is worth a thousand words, so let’s roll the tape…

Please remember to click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with today’s topical song parody.

These are G.O.P. liars
Shy away from learning
Keep our stomachs turning
Burning their cross of fire
We watched them light it
And they can’t deny it

Birth control, Lives of sin, They like folks that have white skin
Buckshot, Dow stock, Loud mouthed chicken-hawks
Takin’ Bacon, Palestine, Palin is no friend of mine
Now they have nukes in Iran, Couldn’t stop the Taliban

Makin’ fortunes, Soldiers die, Did we mention Glenn Beck cried?
Foreign debts, Homeless vets, Exposed by three jets
We voted them out the door, Now they’re just a mouse that roars
Spider holes and unjust wars, I can’t take them anymore.

These are G.O.P. liars
Shy away from learning
Keep our stomachs turning
Burning their cross of fire
We watched them light it
And they can’t deny it
(repeat chorus to fade)

  1. Marie Antoinette’s Magic Elixir

    You can’t run for election on tax cuts for the rich! GW Bush certainly did not. He enacted tax cuts for the rich once in office, and then made the middle class and the poor shoulder the blame for the resultant deficits!

    The obvious remedy for the deficits is to let the Bush tax cuts lapse. The GOP, of course, are fighting this “tax increase” for the rich, or are, even more brazenly, pretending the Bush tax cuts somehow paid for themselves.

    So, yes, prior to the elections, GOP “solutions” are best left unexplained!

  2. Was it just me or were the other guys smirking?

    I read that transcript yesterday, but it was good to see the video, as a picture is worth a thousand words.

  3. Fantastic poster and lyrics! I was shocked to see Gregory so tough on MTP. Hmmm, let’s see what I can recall of any Republican ideas – we’ve had Paulson’s 3 page bail out plan proposal when Bush was still President, then the budget proposal back in March 09 that had NO NUMBERS IN IT, and of late we have the interesting GOP math claiming that keeping the Bush tax cuts won’t add to the deficit. Other than that, lots of wailing and whining and lies. Republican ‘common sense solutions.’

  4. Voodoo Economics

    The “trickle down theory” in graph form, from Reagan to Bush mk.2 It’s clear why Bush mk.1 and Clinton have been so reviled by the GOP Establishment. Who the heck is Mickey?

  5. and also too the party of NO questions allowed – I just saw this on Huffington- Sharron Angle runs away from reporters at her own press conference:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/07/22/sharron-angle-runs-from-r_n_655515.html

    song ideas – Running on Empty, Born to Run (Away), Run Around Sue (Sharron), Run for your Life (Beatles) these people provide you with limitless material!!

  6. Quackonomics

    “Greenspan at least seems to be coming around to the notion that the conservative economic philosophy is a big sham that doesn’t work in practice. Will the rest of the GOP ever follow?” Apparently not.
