|Stallmigos: Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY).|
I am getting tired of people like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and other unaccomplished lawmakers making appearances on GOP Sundays bitching and whining about President Barack Obama.
The president has given the Congress time to pass immigration reform. Unfortunately the Senate bill is dead and the House isn't taking up the issue. The president decided to go forth with executive action to curb some of the deportations of undocumented workers.
This has gotten the racist right pissed off. The Republicans are scrambling for ways to block the president. The president gave a stern response. Pass a bipartisan bill and I'll sign it.
That fell on deaf ears. So on GOP Sundays, Republicans got an opportunity to respond back.
Send Cruz and Paul to the television and radio for another round of name calling and idle threats.
The Stallmigos are thinking about shutting down the government again!
These two insurgent politicians have no legislative accomplishments but yet appeared on television and radio over 100 times. It's really starting to bug me that they book these lawmakers on and they offer nothing but conflict whenever they are given airtime.
I think that these two in particular are thinking about running for president.
Lord knows that if the country could survive a presidency from these two jackasses.
I would hate to see how the media would treat them. After all, the media has given them the opportunity to rant and rave about the president being an emperor and shredding the Constitution.
Paul came to office in 2010. He and Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY, Majority Leader designate) have a somewhat testy friendship.
Cruz came into office in 2012. He got the ground running after being sworn in. He's been a thorn in the ass of both the president and the Republicans. He was responsible for the government shutdown of 2013. He makes no bones about being idolized like Jesse Helms.
Now that Representative Tom Cotton (R-AR), Representative Cory Gardner (R-CO), Joni Ernst, and Thom Tillis are jumping into the party, one could hope that the government will eventually work with the president.
President Barack Obama has ignored Cruz and Paul. The president thinks that some of the Republicans are getting tired of Paul and Cruz hogging up the spotlight.
Do you believe they are running for president? And if so, would you support these two despite them having no legislative accomplishments since being elected?
