Rethugs actively worked toward ensuring the country failed in order to win the 2010 election.
All but wiped out in 2008, republicans groping for a comeback strategy determined there would be no swift return to economic health under incoming President Barack Obama -- they agreed privately to oppose his major legislation."Harmful"? "Principled"?? You fuckhats voted nearly unanimously against every effort the Democrats made to help the economy.
Over the next two years, they criticized, attacked, voted against and then attacked some more as Democrats struggled to pass an economic stimulus measure, health care legislation and a bill to rein in Wall Street. Unemployment, 7.4 percent when Obama took office, soared to 10.1 percent, then barely budged for months.
"By sticking together in principled opposition to policies we viewed as harmful, we made it perfectly clear to the American people where we stood. And we gave voters a real choice," said pudfaced jerkwad Mitch McConnell, deserving of a hard kick in his shrivelled nuts.
And the fucking sheeple bought into it. Sigh.
All of you.
