Forum Post: 15 Traitors

The Republican leadership plotted from the night of the inauguration to destroy Obama
let the nation be dammed in the process.

Fifteen Republicans met and agreed that they would never cooperate with the new President.
That's one of the astonishing findings in Robert Draper's book,
Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives. The 15 participants of that night's meeting were

Republican Reps.
Eric Cantor (Va.),
Kevin McCarthy (Calif.),
Paul Ryan (Wis.),
Pete Sessions (Texas),
Jeb Hensarling (Texas),
Pete Hoekstra (Mich.)
Dan Lungren (Calif.),

Republican Sens.
Jim DeMint (S.C.),
Jon Kyl (Ariz.),
Tom Coburn (Okla.),
John Ensign (Nev.)
Bob Corker (Tenn.).

Newt Gingrich
Frank Luntz.

Noticeably absent from the meeting was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) because of their admitted hatred for Frank Luntz.

Here is an excerpt from the book that details how the night played out…

"The dinner lasted nearly four hours. They parted company almost giddily. The Republicans had agreed on a way forward: Go after Geithner. (And indeed Kyl did, the next day: ‘Would you answer my question rather than dancing around it—please?’) Show united and unyielding opposition to the president’s economic policies. (Eight days later, Minority Whip Cantor would hold the House Republicans to a unanimous No against Obama’s economic stimulus plan.)

 Begin attacking vulnerable Democrats on the airwaves. (The first National Republican Congressional Committee attack ads would run in less than two months.) Win the spear point of the House in 2010. Jab Obama relentlessly in 2011. Win the White House and the Senate in 2012." Draper then wrote that Newt Gingrich on the way out said "You will remember this day…
You’ll remember this as the day the seeds of 2012 were sown."

Republicans didn't sit down and evaluate Democratic proposals when they were put forward. They went into denial mode without any analysis of the needs and benefits to the nation a piece of legislation might offer, without any sincere search for compromise, and without a concern for anything but a cynical grab for power.
The next time you hear a Republican or some other fat head on Fox News talk about how little Obama has accomplished during his first term think about how much he did accomplish in spite of the Republican sabotage. He sincerely planned to govern with bipartisanship, but from the very day he took office they were engaged in an unprecedented act of destruction. It may not be treason under the law, but it is treason in spirit. They deserve the contempt of the nation.

And for those deluded into believing Obama screwed the progressive movement, he had to contend with the above traitors & had a Senate 60 only for eight weeks – until Ted Kennedy died.

This is treasonous collusion to prolong the 'great recession' the republican/conservative policies created.

Clearly the repubs were thinking only of their own political future.

Repubs could not have a strong recovery occur during a dem Presidency! And certainly not a black Dem President!

The 8 weeks of 60 brings up an interesting point about congress in general...

Dont they have these bills ready to go? I mean, its not like all of a sudden the Dems have a big victory in 08 so its time to put together a plan. Or is it?

Because if that is really the case, then what the hell do these guys do for 40-70hrs a week? I mean, what are they doing?

8 weeks should have been enough time to put forth a fuckin slew of legislation.

And if its not, its just further proof that these career politicians have no clue on what hard work is, and what it means to function with a sense of urgency.

That's why they are called RATpublicans.

(I have to say, though, that Kyl got that lying, perjuring, bankster scum, POS Geithner good.)

The bottom line is teh finance area will still be dominated by Goldman Sachs/JP Chase, and cabinet will still be filled with pro war people, and the EPA and FDA will be filled with all the corporations we hate.

Its a revolving door of corruption.

And what of the revolving door of racism that IS your mind?

The one that claims that now racism is a wedge issue too.

Agreed. Romney would bring the worst of the Bush team with him.
