The GOP, Just A Party Of Whiners!

January 3, 2009

crybaby-gop3After 8 years of ruling a government into the ground, you would think the GOP would have the good grace to show that their time is up with dignity.  Instead we have been continuously assaulted with a barrage of constant whining.  Bad enough they have now become a party of irrelevancy, they have also added a certain amount of distaste by their constant crying.

But most of the whining takes the form of claims that the Bush administration’s failure was simply a matter of bad luck — either the bad luck of President Bush himself, who just happened to have disasters happen on his watch, or the bad luck of the G.O.P., which just happened to send the wrong man to the White House.

The fault, however, lies not in Republicans’ stars but in themselves. Forty years ago the G.O.P. decided, in effect, to make itself the party of racial backlash. And everything that has happened in recent years, from the choice of Mr. Bush as the party’s champion, to the Bush administration’s pervasive incompetence, to the party’s shrinking base, is a consequence of that decision. [Read the full op-ed here]

In their shameless endeavor to make sure that we know they are whining we now have a group of RNC members who are diligently writing a resolution to disown their own leader, George W. Bush and Congressional Republicans. Never mind that the resolution will not be ready until after Bush leave office, it is just another sign that they are not willing to deal with the real problems currently effecting their party.  Instead of dealing with the fact that their party is sliding into oblivion, they much prefer to continue to play the blame game.  As if by any stretch of the imagination anyone would absolve any GOP member from this current fiasco we call our melting economy.

Alberto Gonzales, the former attorney general, had the unmitigated gall to whine and say  “I consider myself a casualty, one of the many casualties of the war on terror“?  When does the person who had every opportunity to clear up any misconception about his role in the firing of DOJ attorneys, but chose to answer every question with the famous line “I don’t recall,”  get to be the victim?

Some of the GOP members are also exhibiting signs of utterly bazaar bellicose whining, such as Rush Limbaugh.  He is running around whining to everyone within ear shot that the economic meltdown was caused by a conspiracy headed by the mastermind Sen. Chuck Schumer.  Of course none of the problems, in the crazy whiny world of Rush Limbaugh, can be attributed to a failed GOP ideology that was coupled with a clueless administration.

Its as if the defeat has caused some of the GOP members to slip into a form of madness and perpetual denial.  I must admit that the best example of their whining was reported in the news that the “GOP to flee D.C. for Inauguration.”  The fact that they thought it was necessary to make that a public story goes to show there is no boundaries to their childish whining.

Will the Republicans eventually stage a comeback? Yes, of course. But barring some huge missteps by Mr. Obama, that will not happen until they stop whining and look at what really went wrong. And when they do, they will discover that they need to get in touch with the real “real America,” a country that is more diverse, more tolerant, and more demanding of effective government than is dreamt of in their political philosophy.
