POLITICS: Petulant Party at odds with the military

Letter by James W. Endicott, Lakewood on Dec. 23, 2010 at 1:11 pm with 22 Comments »

Members of the Petulant Party (TNT, 12-23) seem to have forgotten what their primary mission is: serving the citizens and the country its members were elected to represent.

It is no wonder that this group is at odds with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the rest of the top militia brass over the New START treaty. Their goals are different. Military members sign on to support and defend the citizens of the country they serve. Members of the Petulant Party, on the other hand, have, according to their leader, Mitch McConnell, a “single most important goal” – to defeat Obama in the 2012 presidential election.

They would rather, one must surmise, vote against the best interests and security of the United States than risk giving Obama any possible success that might be viewed as a positive in any future re-election campaign. Oh, yeah, that and not wanting to take part in a legislative agenda that amounts to “disrespecting one of the two holiest of holidays for Christians.”

Merry Christmas, Petulant Party members.

    James, Bah, Humbug, to you. You need to turn of Mr.Ed, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, MSNBC.

  2. The irony is that by trying to make Mr. Obama a one termer rather than governing the country in a sane and reasonable manner, the Petulant Party will most assuredly help The President win reelection in 2012.

    After the lame duck secession, we should include ‘lame’ in front of the party name, as in the ‘Lame Petulant Party”, “Lame Party of No” and “Lame Do Nothing Party”.

  3. blakeshouse says:

    The funny thing about this gibberish is that these wackos think Pelosi and Reid WERE governing in a sane and reasonable manner

  4. The lame duck session immensely improved Obama’s chances for 2012. Much like Clinton, he could very well do very well because, not in spite, of the disastrous mid-terms.

  5. First_Lefty says:

    Amen, letter writer. The inplied insult directed at Harry Reid about the “Christian Holiday”, forgetting that Reid is a member of the Church of JESUS CHRIST of the Latter Day Saints and that the possible nominee of the Republican party for 2012, Mitt Romney is of the same faith.

    McConnell talks from both sides of his mouth frequently. Jesus would be proud.

  6. How is it that the sanctity of Christmas is somehow besmirched by working the week before Christmas?

  7. bobcat1a says:

    Kyl hasn’t worked much until now, unless you count saying no to everything as work. I guess he needs to get some rest before he comes back to put more holds on legislation; that is so tiring.

  8. Roncella,

    Have you been sucking on Beck’s teet, or mega dittoing Rush? You seem to think that liberals get all of their ideas from the television, which makes me suspect that you do. I understand that YOU need to be told what to think. Some os us develop out OWN opinions. Just in case you are wondering.

    So, no bah humbug. Merry Christmas! Its okay to think for yourself. Try it, you may like it.

  9. Excellent letter Mr. Endicott. Imagine how Petulant they are now after all the successes The Democrats had in the latest congressional session.
    I bet they bring it with them when the new congress convenes this coming January. It’s a lot like children who cannot play well with others and instead foul the sandbox

  10. Roncella says:

    emoo, Why do I get the feeling your actually sumner ????

  11. freakwater says:

    Is it the Petulant Party or is it the Racist-Homophobic-Old White Guy-Christian Theocrat Party? There is no daylight between today’s Republican Party and the Taliban/Al Qaeda. They share essentially the same moral values: hate and intolerance, not to mention stupidity and incompetence.

  12. freakwater – missed your posts…..you make me seem downright agreeable in comparison.

  13. Blake – considering how the loyal opposition wants to run the County Pelose and Reed were governing in a sane and reasonable manner.

  14. “There is no daylight between today’s Republican Party and the Taliban/Al Qaeda.”

    What an absurd remark. So freakwater, you think if Republicans were in power, armed thugs would herd women into Safeco field and assassinate them publicly?

    Inflammatory, bigoted remarks such as this one are not going to do a thing towards renewing bipartisan dialogue.

  15. “emoo, Why do I get the feeling your actually sumner ????”

    Many of the feelings you express are beyond explanation, Roncella. What makes you think that there is a rational reason for this particular feeling that yore having?

  16. ItalianSpring says:

    James- I find your fear delicious.

  17. freakwater says:

    [i]So freakwater, you think if Republicans were in power, armed thugs would herd women into Safeco field and assassinate them publicly?[/i]

    No, they’d herd them into Quest. They’d use Safeco for the blacks and the Jews.

  18. Roncella says:

    Polago, I’m guess you believe your posts are all correct and believeable. Trust me when I say your as far to the left as I may be to the right.

    Sozo, The attacks are just beginning against the Conservatives. The lib/progressives will start very soon as the new Congress gets ready to make some serious changes to ObamaCare, and the out of control spending that Obama/Pelosi/Reid have done for the past two years.

  19. Yore paranoia is what’s out of control, Roncella.

  20. Good to know which bigots to bypass in future scrolls, fw. Where would you herd the GOP?

  21. freakwater says:

    Sozo claims he’ll bypass my posts then he asks me a question.

    That’s what too much exposure to the Fox Stupid Ray does to your brains, folks. It makes you say stupid thinks. That goes for MSNBC and CNN, too. Too much television will make anyone stupid. Turn off the glass teat, get your fat derrières off of the couch, and go outdoors.

  22. Yore

    Please learn the difference people. Just because the words are homonyms doesn’t mean they are interchangeable.

    And….while I am on my pet peeve…
