Litany of Republican hypocrisy grows longer with frivolous lawsuit, obstructing immigration reform & needed highway safety funds

People who support Republican politicians aren't thinking clearly. because the hypocrisy list of issues they can't support continues to grow. Nevertheless, those who believe the false GOP reasoning about important issues like immigration reform, blocking the release of highway safety money to protect America's infrastructure, the relationship between guns, and gun violence and their disregard for women's reproductive health, are people who're immune to truth.

Add to the above the frivolous Republican lawsuit, now wasting taxpayer money, to challenge President Obama's authority to delay implementation of the Affordable Care Act's employer mandate.

Republicans have no leader to help them out of this hypocritical abyss. Unfortunately, Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner is simply a grouchy man who reminds me of a person perennially recovering from a hangover. He's not a leader.Worse, he's not enlightened. Rather, he's a concrete regressive thinker.  

Boehner's lawsuit comes at a time of peak pressure from GOP members urging Congress to check what they claim is Obama’s use of power. Early this week, former Governor of Alaska (she resigned before completing her term) and Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin joined a number of conservative voices calling for President Obama’s impeachment. Palin told Sean Hannity of Fox News on Tuesday, “The tipping point in this drive toward impeachment for me has been the illegal immigration issue.” Her call-to-arms op-ed piece has gotten over 21,000 comments since it was posted on Tuesday. On Hannity, she accused the Republicans in Congress of not having “the cojones” to impeach the president.

Democrats don't seem to take such a threat seriously. Former Governor of Pennsylvania Ed Rendell (D) said on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation on Wednesday, “The constitution says you can impeach the president for high crimes and misdemeanors. There is nothing President Obama has done that is remotely close to a high crime or a misdemeanor.”

Hypocrisy fatigue is obviously infecting Americans who find it challenging to confront every obstructing Republican position, while wasting taxpayer money to make their redundant points.  

Let me get this right - Republicans want immigration reform but their idea is to send the National Guard to stand down innocent women and children refugees? This isn't a solution. What they want is to deviously create a "Katrina" disaster moment for President Obama. This image conjures up more of a Kent State scene, than one of American compassion towards children immigrants.

Moreover, Republicans who filed a lawsuit against the President are the same people who scorn "frivolous lawsuits", whereby ordinary people receive justice for offenses, in a law court. Nevertheless, millions of dollars will be spent to sue President Obama just because Republicans want to create trouble, rather than solve problems,whenever they can. Meanwhile, everyone, including Republicans, agree that the lawsuit against President Obama will go nowhere.

Taxpayers should be exposing right wing Republicans, but somehow we've become immune to their growing hypocrisy.

Except, maybe the preponderance of the hypocritical issues just may be enough evidence for voters to put all Republicans out of office, in the 2014 fall election. Hopefully.
