The death of a nation

So... my conservative friends, you think that the Tea Party movement is a good thing for the country… right?  Those of us closer to the center have a bit of a different view, and your favorite teabagger and mine, Melissa Brookstone, has been kind enough to illustrate our reasoning.

Brookstone and her band of merrymakers are advocating the total collapse of the American nation just to get Obama out of the White House…

Brookstone and her Tea Party Nation are urging small businesses to stop hiring, sabotaging the economy for the sole purpose of causing President Obama to fail. The final paragraph of the pledge Brookstone wants small business owners to sign reads…

“I, an American small business owner, part of the class that produces the vast majority of real, wealth producing jobs in this country, hereby resolve that I will not hire a single person until this war against business and my country is stopped.”

Obama's ability to fulfill his campaign promises tells the story both of his failure in leadership and of the problem this country faces due to the Party of "NO." 

As rated by Politifact.com, out of the some odd 500 campaign promises made by Obama only 151 have been fulfilled. While he has outright broken 52, a total of 303 of the remaining have been slowed, stalled, compromised or outright blocked by Republican foot dragging.

Considering the origins of the current fiscal woes and the apparent recalcitrance of the current right wing to do anything to help... please tell me, my friends… who exactly is responsible for the ongoing problems in this country? Is it all Obama, or is it the childish behavior of sore losers?

You don't like Obama, thats fine and dandy. I don't much care for his policies myself but feel like we are safer with a bumbling Democrat than with any of the clown college rejects bobbing at the top of the Republican apple barrel. If you think any of this band of win-at-any-cost right wingnuts offers a better solution you are kidding yourself.
