A Republican Never Remembers

Someone posted a great poem I read on a Yahoo! forum post entitled, “Hello Right Wingers…”.

The writer made all the points that would debunk all the logic of what the conservatives have been trying to deflect.

Thought I’d share it with my readers!

———–

Hello Right Wingers —

We had eight years of Bush and Cheney, but now you get mad!

You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.

You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative got ousted.

You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn’t get mad when we spent over 600 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn’t get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn’t get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn’t get mad when we didn’t catch Bin Laden.

You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city (New Orleans) drown.

You didn’t get mad when we gave a 900 billion tax break to the rich.

You didn’t get mad when, using reconciliation; a trillion dollars of our tax dollars were redirected to insurance companies for Medicare Advantage which cost over 20 percent more for basically the same services that Medicare provides.

You didn’t get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark, and our debt hit the thirteen trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick.

Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping other Americans?

Oh, hell no!

If there’s anything I could add, it would be, “You finally got mad when a black man was elected President…and is doing something right for a change!”

  1. Chuck says:

    HE'S ONLY 1/4 BLACK. . .HE IS 3/4 WHITE!!! HE IS NOT THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT, HE IS THE FIRST RACIALLY – MIXED PRESIDENT!

  2. Sorry, Chuck. But in the eyes of America, he's a Black man. Doesn't matter what percentage of White he has. It's been like that for many years, going back to slave times. You should know better than that. Don't kill the messenger.
