MY LETTER TO SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE BOEHNER AFTER HE WALKED OUT OF A BUDGET, DEBT CEILING, AND DEBT REDUCTION MEETING WITH THE PRESIDENT.
I'm not sure who the heck you think you are, but I think you need to be reminded that the people of the 8th district of Ohio are the only constituency that elected you - only the President was - conceptually - elected by the entire country. This "I'm taking my ball and going home" mentally is inappropriate at best, but from my prospective is utterly childish and shows a complete lack of professionalism, a lack of respect for the office of the Presidency, and a complete lack of self-respect, not to mention the fact that you have loss all sense of political truth and reality.
This is not surprising for a Republican since most of your most vocal members exhibit a complete lack of knowledge of and understanding of truth and facts - particularly as relates to history - which by the way,they apparently can't be even bothered to look up. I especially likes Santorum's statement about 230 million jobs - how did I miss that little tidbit. This certainly makes what any Republican says suspect to me!
How your party could be handed a budget with a surplus (Clinton) and piddle it away on a war that was not founded in reality under Bush (you do remember the weapons of mass destruction, don't you?) and then blame it on Obama is absolutely outrageous. And let's not lose site of how many times you raised the debt ceiling to enable that 'man' your party supported - and couldn't initially take that office by honest election (remember Florida and the Supreme Court?) - to speed this nation into utter disaster without benefit of supporting income.
And now you blame the Democrats! Oh, I think not. Your Republican party members may suffer from some extreme aberrations and beliefs, but don't make the mistake of trying to apply those labels to the Democrats. To threaten to allow the United States to go into international default is not only reprehensible, it is treasonous!
Having said all that, my request is that you grow up and become - if not a decent 'compassionate conservative' Republican - a true scholar and member of this republic in the spirit of the Founding Fathers.- not Michele Bachmann's founding fathers, but the real Founding Fathers. I remind you that the Articles of Confederation which seem to be more to the liking of today's Republican party have been replaced by the Constitution - you remember the Constitution don't you, that's the document you couldn't even read correctly at the opening of the House session! Oh, and please don't cry - I only meant to get your attention!
