Republican posturing

At least someone gets it.

How did Republicans react to all this?

Some of them merely do not react at all. Some appeared on Fox News to viciously condemn Biden and the Democrats with every epithet available in their lexicon. Some played to the galleries during Senate and congressional hearings to have “testy” exchanges as they question the adversary. Some gleefully crossed the aisle and concurred with the Democrats.

But beyond the amateur theatrics, precious little was actually done to prevent or correct the many missteps of the Biden administration.

Sometimes I feel like I’m alone in the forest.

Some Republican “firebrand” addresses a witness in a committee hearing with less than utter politeness and then sends out tweets crowing about how they “eviscerated” the enemy on the field of battle.

Sorry, but strong language isn’t going to get it done. The Republicans’ inaction is worse than what the Democrats are doing. What’s worse, the enemy that tells you they’re going to shoot you in the face and then proceeds to do it, or the “friend” that tells you they’ve got your back and then just whines ineffectually about the injustice of it all while you are being attacked?

Most of our Republican representatives currently in power are in it for the “in power” part, not the “representative” part. They make the noises and say the words, and feign the actions to make us think they’re on our side, but they’re not. They’re just as much a part of the machine as any democrat or deep state operative.

The duly elected President was actively plotted and conspired against for over four years by agents of virtually every department of the government and not a damn thing has been done about it.

An election has been blatantly stolen in plain view of the public and not a damn thing has been done about it.

The government is threatening to rescind the right of millions of Americans to participate in society unless they comply with government “mandates” and not a damn thing is being done about it.

“Mandate” is a term that should have no place in a free society, yet here we are.

And, other than the occasional ineffectual public scolding of someone or another not a damn thing is being done about it.

  1. Most congressional republicans are just democrats with nicer suits and their primary interest is the power necessary to commit advanced pocket-lining and not pissing off people so much they don’t get to play any more.
