The tail didn't wag the dog yesterday, it took a bite out of its ass, and good. The Republican Conservative movement bared their teeth and took a chunk out of the backside of the head canine. In plain speak, John Boehner got what's left of his ample ass shredded, then handed to him.
We all remember this:
Well, after yesterday's meeting with the Republican Caucus, the pit bull, who masquerades as Speaker of the House by day and lifts his hind leg and pees on social issues by night, did his little poop on command in front of the cameras yesterday to tell America a new story.
“You all know me. You tease the ones you love, all right? But some people misunderstood what I had to say, and I wanted to make sure members understood that the biggest impediment we have to moving immigration reform is that the American people don’t trust the president to enforce or implement the law that we may or may not pass.”
Oh, you big kidder, John Boehner. We should have known you were just pulling our leg. Your own people should have known better, too. You love to joke and cajole behind closed doors. We get it.
Well, ask Mitt Romney how easy it is to live down hidden video. America is going to hear your two-faced agenda over and over again and question what your own party thinks of the Conservative movement. If their own leader thinks they're babies, what's America's voting public to think of them?
A majority of the public wants immigration reform, and they now have heard the House Top Dog say it's not going to happen. And your deflection on why you won't let it happen is that it's Obama's fault. He can't be trusted. Is this country going to believe a crybaby like yourself or the man who's proven he is trying to get things done despite your lies and obstruction?
This isn't going to fly outside those who hated Obama before he even started to serve. But they may hate you and the Republican party even more when they find out you've led the charge to defeat immigration reform, promoted the government shutdown, and halted any movement on minimum wage, fought to keep women from self-determination over their own bodies, all while bringing to the floor 50+ 'go nowhere' votes on stopping health care reform.
You may think Democrats have a lot to answer for in November. But right now, you're own party doesn't trust you. And that stink is going to wash over many of your Republican cronies. You're not a leader. You're a stinker. And that stench starts at the head.
