Michael Garitty: Amateur hour continues to reign in Congress

Treasonous. Seditious. Traitors. Not words usually associated with U.S. congressmen. Until 47 Republican senators violated the Logan Act (and in some cases military law) by aligning themselves with hardline Iranian clerics; their pathological hatred of our president dishonoring the nation and themselves.

Since the disastrous Bush presidency left us nearly bankrupt fighting two illegal, unjustifiable wars, Republican congressmen have consistently embarrassed themselves and the country by obstructing every effort Obama has pursued to bring back prosperity. He’s doing it with traitorous fools kicking and screaming all along the way, supported by Faux News and right-wing hate radio.

Obama’s last State of the Union address showed clearly what a joke the Republican Tea Party has become. Obama ticked off accomplishment after accomplishment while traitorous Republican fools sat on their hands. Within a month’s time though their stupidity and treasonous behavior were on full display as they gave standing ovations to Israeli PM Netanyahu who Speaker Boehner had arrogantly invited to address Congress. Just doing what Republicans do, inciting yet another winless, endless war of aggression while still having trouble with that whole governing thing. Amateur hour continues to reign in Congress.
