Republican Response to Obama's Speech

I was literally speechless at the republican response to Obama's speech. Their best argument for why the government shouldn't really do anything to try and fix the economy was that people in New Orleans did fine without government help. That's it? It's not even like shooting fish in a barrel! It's something easier.

Are they even trying? I feel like they are, but when I hear their arguments I wonder if they're even legally competent to hold office.

Not only that, but I love how the best move they seem to have is to push all ethnic people in their party to the fore front. First Michael Steel (Who claimed he was going to "bring Hip-Hop to republicans". Yeah, because The Roots and Sarah Palin really have a lot in common). And now Bobby Jindal.

Then they also keep bringing up a high speed rail from Disney to Vegas. The Stim does give money to high speed rail construction (which is a good thing.) but there is nothing in the plan about one from Disney to Vegas. Bald face lie. Even if there was one, why would that be so terrible? They don't seem to get why they are now in the minority. Maybe it's the incessant lying.

I probably should have drawn this out in a big comic but this felt more appropriate.

  1. Unfortunately, legally competent and ethically competent aren't the same thing...
