Why do Republicans hate America?

Yup, this is how Republicans congratulate our president:

“They love a weakened, neutered U.S and this is their way of promoting that concept.”
— Rush Limbaugh

“It’s not Republicans that are throwing their lot in with terrorists — it’s the White House.”
— Michael Goldfarb

“Before they break out the champagne at the White House, they may want to pause over the fact that Obama now shares this honor with Mohammed el-Baradei, Yasser Arafat, and flagrant liar Rigoberta Menchu Tum.”
— Mona Charon

“Now as he nears a critical decision on whether or not to provide the troops his commander in the theater is pressing for even as appeasers in his inner circle council appeasement of the Taliban, he is awarded the world’s most prestigious prize.”
— Hugh Hewitt

“I did not realize the Nobel Peace Prize had an affirmative action quota for it.”
— Erick Erickson

“After a number of years, the NFL renamed its Super Bowl trophy after its most fitting recipient — it’s now called the Vince Lombardi Trophy. I’d like to see the Nobel Foundation follow suit. If today’s headlines said, ‘Barack Obama Wins Yasser Arafat Prize,’ that would be perfect.”
— Andy McCarthy

And the DNC’s appropriate response?

The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists — the Taliban and Hamas this morning — in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize. Republicans cheered when America failed to land the Olympics and now they are criticizing the President of the United States for receiving the Nobel Peace prize — an award he did not seek but that is nonetheless an honor in which every American can take great pride — unless of course you are the Republican Party. The 2009 version of the Republican Party has no boundaries, has no shame and has proved that they will put politics above patriotism at every turn. It’s no wonder only 20 percent of Americans admit to being Republicans anymore – it’s an embarrassing label to claim.

Embarrassing indeed.

    The Party of No whose shrinking band of adherents have been driven mad by Obama Derangement Syndrome.

    A compassionate physician would recommend turning off Faux News and internet access combined with some community work with those needing the most help.

    Then MAYBE the addiction to right wing lies can be remedied.

    The GOP seems to be divided into two groups, the Reaganites and the wingers. The Reaganites might disagree with the President bu stay respectful and civil. The wingers? not so much.

    Republicans, the self-proclaimed party of traditional and family values, do not even have the decency and graciousness to congratulate the nation’s president on receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. My, how they have fallen.

    @5

    Iraq is a mess that Bush created. At this point full withdrawal of all Americans is probably the best bet, but that’s not gonna happen.

    North Korea was looking better at the end of Clinton’s term than it was at the beginning of Obama’s. We’re making headway there.

    Afghanistan was a mess long before W. invaded the place (which I supported). Do you really think anyone could fix The ‘Stan in 9 months? W. had years and kept falling further behind.

    I do agree that giving Obama the Nobel is a bit silly.

    Congressional Republicans have completely abandoned consideration of the nation’s interests in approaching policy questions. The only consideration relevant to them is how they can undermine Obama. They have no ideology, no positions, no substance–harming the president, no matter what damage might befall the country as a result, is their only goal. What sick fucks.

    If there is a joke here, it is that the execrable Cynical, a greedy, pompous and hate filled buffoon, masquerading as SuperChristian, wants to blame all the shortcomings of his idol Bush, who abandoned Afghanistan in favor of his hardon for Iraq and did his level best to push nutcase Korea into the ridiculous position it took for the remainder of the Bush Reign of Terror.

    Bush was an abomination and cynical is his handmaiden.

    So now he is a messenger for the disgraced Bush. Because, of course, Bush did NOT get a Nobel. Or anything but revulsion from civilized people the world over. As would Sinnical, if he had a higher profile (which, thanks be to God, is exceeding unlikely).

    I, for one, am tremendously impressed.

    SJ Troll Patrol spews:

    The simplest response to the unpatriotic trolls is this:

    “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”[1]

    According to the United States Flag Code, the Pledge “should be rendered by standing at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. When not in uniform men should remove any non-religious headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Persons in uniform should remain silent, face the flag, and render the military salute.”[1]

    I recite this oath with pride in what MY country has done, even those words that are nto part of my code and even though there are things WE have done that I ashamed of.

    So, when MY nation is honored, you trolls can piss on MY flag and my pride when WE are recognized for out commitment to liberty and justice for all.

    Heh heh – check out how the Clark County Politics guy goes ballistic, combining his love for Timmy Eyman with his hatred for transit and “racist” Obama:

    Friday, October 09, 2009

    Local loot rail fans, here’s the future for us: Sound Transit – $3.1 BILLION DOLLARS LESS THAN PLANNED TO BE COLLECTED.
    .
    That’s right, folks. Like the rest of the lies from Loot Rail fans, our closest massive waste of money in Seattle is coming in a mere $3.1 BILLION dollars short on their budget.

    Sales and car tab taxes, tab taxes that have driven renewal costs to absurd levels, will have to be jacked up even HIGHER because of these lying scum.

    And we’re going to be facing the same thing here in EVERY respect.

    That $4 BILLION waste of money for a bridge we don’t want or need… a bridge that’s entire reason for being replaced is ONLY to get loot rail into Vancouver? Figure on at least TWICE that much.

    And who is going to make up for the shortfall? Talk about income redistribution.

    And the money making quote in this article?Among the consequences:

    Future light-rail lines will need to adhere to low-cost, simple designs, agency managers said. No cuts in service were suggested at Sound Transit’s board meeting Thursday.

    OK… I’ll bite: THESE MORONS ARE FACING A $3.1 BILLION DEFICIT. WHY THE HELL WEREN’T “CUTS” SUGGESTED?

    This is yet another in the series of reasons why I-1033 MUST be approved. Out of control spending and waste by out of control government bureaucrats and elected officials who simply DON’T CARE since it’s not their money.

    These people lied about how much their absurd level of taxes and fees for a worthless, obsolete, unneeded and unwanted transportation system that only amounts to bus replacements for the view who have an astounding amount sucked out of OUR pockets for THEIR transportation needs.

    Disgusting… and a total rip off.

    They tell us they only plan to waste $4 BILLION on this steaming pile.

    Don’t believe them. Don’t believe them because the number of times these kinds of projects skyrocket over budget in comparison to the number of times they come in under the number they promise is geometrically higher.

    Between this kind of swindle and the empty suited, anti-American racist bigot actually ACCEPTING the Noble Piss Prize, I have rarely been more disgusted with my government.

    @16…RR…

    “I’d take it if they offered it to me.”

    A few words that reveal the emptiness and hypocrisy of the left…

    Rabbit sees nothing wrong in taking something he’s not entitled to, hasn’t earned, and should have been awarded to countless others who have done something and who, through real effort and accomplishment, merited recognition for the work they’ve done.

    The Prez gets a Nobel Peace Prize for being on the job for 12 days – for just showin’ up. He hasn’t actually done anything other than sell out the Poles and Czechs, Israel, the Dalai Lama, Chinese dissidents, the democracy movement in Honduras, and others. Include in that the American taxpayer.

    On this basis, shouldn’t the award have gone also, though posthumously, to Neville Chamberlain for the Munich Accords? After all, he sold the Czechs down the river too.

    Or shouldn’t the award go to BHO’s campaign speech writer? After all, the high sounding, but quite empty, words that supposedly changed the nature of the world were all crafted in some hotel room by a campaign staffer to augment his stump speech. Remember…he was on the job a mere 12 days when nominations closed.

    But Rabbit, ever his hand outstretched to take something earned and paid for by another, thinks this is just swell. The correct term for it is gluttony.

    No merit to merit – no sense of earning what you receive – just gimmee, gimmee, gimmee…

    What a wonderful and self-confessed picture of the emptiness of leftist class envy and greed. On that basis, we all are entitled to grasp at everything Rabbit owns.

    A classic…simply a classic.

    On the second day of President Obama’s tenure, he cancelled the Bush/Cheney policy of torture. That alone was a greater contribution to peace than the sum total of the previous eight years of lies and murder. The rabid, shrill response of the right wing loons just diminishes them in the eyes of the world.

    and what has obama done to deserve being nominated for such a prize just 12 days into office – and then be awarded the prize just a few months into office…I can see him winning the award after his term in office if he has done great things, but WTF did he do only 12 days in????
