Do we really care what the SD GOP has to say anymore?

David Kranz from the Argus Leader wrote an article today about Obama’s approval ratings in South Dakota. As you will see the SD GOP is still bitter about the loss, and even go so far to make stuff up;

Lora Hubbel, a Sioux Falls Republican, says the best indicator she has on how Obama is doing is the national debt, which has dramatically increased under Obama’s short tenure.

Now it has like quadrupled the debt Bush had … and I was upset, too, with the debt in the Bush administration,” Hubbel said.

Really? Bush racked up $10 trillion, Obama has racked up about $1 trillion. Please explain your fuzzy math. There must me some mind controlling isotopes in the tea you are drinking.

And King Rounds adds his 2 cents worth of cynicism;

“The question is will the effort bring short-term relief but permanent pain to generations of Americans who will wind up paying the bill?

Nope. He will raise taxes on the rich and have this thing paid off in 5-10 years. That has been the plan all along. And that’s probably why many of Dave Knudson’s rich buddies at the lastest soiree he attended wer concerned;

“I think there is a lot of concern from people I talk to, particularly at Republicans’ Lincoln Day Dinners, a concern about the size of the deficit, a big concern that inflation is going to be coming back with a vengeance because of deficit spending,” Knudson said.

“Yeah Dave, I have been skirting my fair share taxes this past 8 years and now Obama wants to raise them. I’ll help you mislead the average Joe anyway we can. That’s what us Republicans are good at.”

Because Gawd knows they don’t want to face the reality that their BOY handed Obama a big shit sandwich;

As the administration moves forward, Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D., says it’s important to remember that Obama inherited two wars, a massive debt and an economy facing the greatest economic downturn since the Great Depression.

And then Ironic Johnny chimes in with more of his bullshit;

“President Obama is facing a number of challenges across the board and an economic crisis of escalating proportions. I am very concerned with the amount of taxpayer dollars that have been spent since the first of this year to address these problems,” Thune said.

“This record spending is all being borrowed from countries like China, and this debt, with its record levels of interest, will need to be repaid by our children and grandchildren.”

Yeah, John, didn’t see you on KELO TV every other day crying about all the borrowing Bush was doing. Oh, that’s right, it was okay to borrow money as long as your rich buddies were getting tax cuts, but now that they have to pony up, it’s a travesty.

SD Republicans prove once again, their opinions don’t matter. The party of no.

It’s true: the GOP has nothing left but to lie and obstruct.

And they are extremely pathetic at it.

I am very concerned with the amount of taxpayer dollars that have been spent since the first of this year to address these problems,” Thune said.

And yet he had no problem voting for the Bush stimulus bill or any of the appropriation bills over the past eight years that resulted in our national debt sailing over $10 Trillion.

Thune seems to be a typical politician… do one thing, and then say another in the hopes nobody is paying attention.

That’s why I call him Ironic Johnny. I hope all of this fun stuff comes out in the campaign.
