Fresh from their latest lobotomy, Republicans in Washington are eagerly lining up to accept Barack Obama’s J. Wellington Wimpy offer. The Republicans, who are on the cusp of being able to sweep Obama and the Party of Treason out of Washington, instead are about to take the Wimpy offer, which will guarantee Obama’s reelection and may even thwart the GOP’s chances to control Congress.
J. Wellington Wimpy, for those who are not familiar with him, is a cartoon character from the old Popeye cartoons. In 1932, the last time we were given a depression by the Party of Treason, Wimpy was in a Popeye cartoon and uttered the famous line, “I will gladly pay you on Tuesday for a Hamburger today.”
The Democrats learned from that cartoon, and it’s message has been their strategy ever since. Gullible Republicans simply play along.
The Hamburger that the Democrats want is more taxes and more spending. Like a crack addict going into tremors at the sight of white powder, the Democrats desperately need their latest fix of other people’s money.
Their latest ploy is fairly simple. With the debt negotiations, they are going to offer huge spending cuts tomorrow (or twenty years out, but do not ask the liberals for details --- it only confuses them). The liberals will gladly give the Republicans spending cuts tomorrow in exchange for tax hikes today.
The Republicans will sign on to such a deal. The only problem is we will get the tax hikes today and the spending cuts will never materialize. Once the new money comes in the Party of Treason will say the cuts are not needed, as the deficit is now not as bad as we thought it would be.
The problem with this strategy is it will allow Obama a huge political victory and probably seal his reelection. With Obama projected to raise ONE BILLION DOLLARS for his reelection campaign, he will carpet bomb the airwaves with the message that he is the fiscally responsible candidate. He cut $4 trillion in spending. The other commercials will show John Boehner and Mitch McConnell as the one’s who raised taxes.
Mission accomplished. Obama will get his other people’s money fix for the Party of Treason and will destroy the political opposition in one fell swoop.
Meanwhile, on the Republican side of the aisle, while the leadership wanders around like newly castrated cattle, you would think at least one of them would figure out that Obama, Pelosi and Reid are setting a trap for them.
In 1986, we got amnesty. The squishy Republicans and the Party of Treason collaborated and convinced Reagan to sign the amnesty bill. We all remember the amnesty, but most people forget that it was a two-part deal. There would be amnesty but the border was to be sealed too.
The Democrats got their hamburger and twenty-five years later, the Republicans are still waiting for them to pay.
The Democrats, being the addicts to other people’s money, understand what all addicts do. They understand how to find enablers and how to manipulate them. They have found that in the Republicans and they can very easily manipulate them.
The Democrats realize that the Republicans worship at the altar of bipartisanship. Like the abused woman in a violent relationship, the Republicans keep hoping the Democrats will like them and keep saying, “Oh they really aren’t that way.”
In the eternal quest for “bipartisanship”, the GOP gives into the Democrats, like the codependent woman who believes if she just gets this one thing right, her abuser will stop abusing and become loving. The Republicans throw themselves at bipartisanship, dreaming that the Democrats will finally become their friends and the media will start treating them with the same fawning adoration they give the Democrats. The Republicans will have their Sally Field moment, finally being able to gush, “You like me. You really like me!”
The problem with ideology is that it is a symptom of a party bereft of beliefs. That is why the Democrats are not bipartisan. Say whatever else you want to about the Party of Treason, they have their beliefs, they have their agenda and they stick with them like glue. The Republicans, for the most part have neither core beliefs nor an agenda, which is what makes it so easy for them to be bipartisan.
Unfortunately for America, they will be bipartisan. They will gladly give the Obama, Pelosi, Reid axis of fiscal evil the tax increases they want today, in exchange for the promise of spending cuts on Tuesday.
Only Tuesday will never come.

You are throwing misstatements around as though were actually spoken.
Name more than one Republican who has said anything like that. You are making stuff up, just to raise a little mayhem.
The Republicans are doing a great job of holding the line on our idiot president and his minions. Your allegations do nothing toward helping us win. In fact, your are hurting our chances with your wild talk.
Judson and I were at a Republican dinner two years ago where Jeff Sessions was the keynote speaker. Both of our squishy RINO Senators were in attendance and when Sessions spoke of Bob Corker, he praised him effusively for Corker's ability to "reach across the aisle and get things done." It was a real eye-opener to me at how these beltway Republicans think. While Sessions thought he was giving Corker a high compliment by praising his ability to comprise with the Democrats, the audience in attendance sat silent. I think a handful of people (other RINOs) applauded. The rest of us were disgusted.
We don't just want things done. We want things done right. We elect them to go to Washington to represent us and what we value and hold dear. We do not elect them to go to DC and compromise our beliefs for the sake of getting along.
Donald, say this 3 times: republicrats, republicrats, republicrats.
They're all the same.
Democans, democans, democans.
Republicans simply cannot distinguish themselves from the dumocraps.
And, I am soo tired of Jr. blaming republicrats for his failures.
Right now, he's following just what Slick Willy did when he was in the white house.
Listen to Rush for an update.
The Senate Republicans just voted to pass a resolution expressing the need for millionaires to make "a more meaningful contribution".
Does that sound good?
No, Jeff, this does not sound good -- they can't shoot themselves in the foot anymore, They're into tender parts.
I'm far from a millionaire but do not accept class warfare from anyone.
If I overspend on my house budget, shd Junior chip in and bail me out -- he's got lots more than I do.
