I really do think they have a disdain for this country deep down, both of them.These are such proud moments for our country.
So, I think you’re right its an absolutely political move and a disdain for our form of government may in fact be in place. I think its an absolute philosophical block on what it has, what it has taken to allow this to be the greatest nation in the history of the world.
As I've been slowly documenting here on The Fold, the official stance of the Republican Party is not that they disagree with the majority party, it's that the president is a foreign born enemy that hates America. (More documentation can be found here, here, here and here).
These aren't the crazies on the street. These are actual elected Republican officials. This sort of behavior is unprecedented in American history. The only time I can find any substance to such disregard for this nation by a major political party is during the Civil War. Maybe during the Cold War and throughout McCarthyism there were some instances that can be comparable. But the total infection of the GOP to portray Obama as illegitimate and an enemy has not been seen in 150 years or better known as the time when conservatives were in an uproar about enslaving people like Obama.
I couldn't imagine what would have happened 11 months ago if one elected Democrat had ever behaved the way the entirety of the GOP is today. Do Republicans ever cheer for America? Do they really hate this country that much?
