Republicans Are in Denial, Trump Feeds the Sickness, and the GOP Blames That on – Joe Biden?

There is growing consensus that the Republican Party has devolved into a cult that worships at the bone-spurred feet of the twice-impeached, former reality TV game show host, and failed pseudo-businessman, Donald Trump. Even longtime GOP stalwarts are conceding that Trump is guilty of numerous crimes related to the January 6th insurrection that he incited.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

Joining the company of Trump critics this weekend was Republican senator – and the 2012 GOP nominee for president – Mitt Romney. He published an op-ed in “The Atlantic” entitled America Is in Denial,” that addressed, among other things, the toxic division that is polluting the American political environment. Romney’s key point was that the nation is too possessed by partisanship to solve any of its problems. He complained that…

“The left thinks the right is at fault for ignoring climate change and the attacks on our political system. The right thinks the left is the problem for ignoring illegal immigration and the national debt.”

There is, however, a glaring flaw in Romney’s logic. The left is telling the truth when they note that the the right ignores climate change and attacks the political system. In fact, many on the right believe that climate change is a hoax, and Trump leads those who demean our institutions and the Constitution.

Meanwhile, the right is lying when they assert the the left ignores immigration and the national debt. In fact, more immigrants are being apprehended now than at any time during the Trump administration. And Biden has reduced the deficit by more than a trillion dollars. And those are just a couple of the accomplishments that Romney and the GOP strive so vigorously to suppress.

Romney went on to demonstrate a bit of the non-partisan cordiality that has made him a pariah among his own Republican colleagues. He said that…

“President Joe Biden is a genuinely good man, but he has yet been unable to break through our national malady of denial, deceit, and distrust. A return of Donald Trump would feed the sickness, probably rendering it incurable. Congress is particularly disappointing: Our elected officials put a finger in the wind more frequently than they show backbone against it.”

Indeed, Trump is an infectious agent who spreads deceit and distrust. And Republicans in Congress have proven that they are mostly useless due to their cowardice and/or complicity with Trump’s anti-American crusade to MAGA (Make America Go Authoritarian).

More to the point, Romney is absurd in the extreme when he asserts that the these problems are President Biden’s fault. It is preposterous to blame Biden for the fact that Republicans have adopted a knee-jerk opposition to anything that emanates from Biden, his administration, or his party. The GOP is wholly responsible for their own pigheadedness.

It is the stubborn obstructionism of the GOP that is the cause of America’s “national malady.” Without that burden the nation could have already passed legislation improving the economy and mitigating inflation. They could have avoided the reversal in constitutional liberties imposed by the radical rightists on the Supreme Court. They could have implemented gun reforms that would save lives. They could have codified voting rights and measures to insure fair elections.

It is not Biden’s fault that Republicans would rather suck up to Trump than to do the people’s business and pursue the people’s interests. And Republicans have an ally in their sabotage of the public good. That, of course, is the right-wing media, led by Fox News, where hate mongering and the brainwashing of their audience is the primary editorial mission.

Romney closed by saying “I hope for a president who can rise above the din to unite us behind the truth.” Which is exactly what Biden has been doing. The only reason it hasn’t caught on with other Republicans and red state dwellers is because phonies like Romney – and his Fox News enablers – insist on denying reality, embracing partisanship, and purposefully propagating lies.

When people like Romney can tell the truth – that American is not in denial, Republicans are – we might actually begin to see some real progress. In the meantime, we need to elect more Democrats to counteract the serious sickness that Romney nibbled at the edges of in his self-serving editorial.

  1. The low life roaches that are the GQP are ALWAYS going to blame Dems for everything even if there is not a shred of truth to anything they say. That’s all these son of a bitches are good for is telling lies and backing them up with more lies. As for the asshat Mitt Romney, he is a snake in the grass. He is the SOB that proposed that ”Trust Act” thing to f**k us out of our Social Security. That son of a bitch is no better than any other Rethuglican scum bags. Romney was just ”tooting his horn” to get attention with his lying rant. I despise the low life SOB. I despise all Rethuglicans. They can all go to hell as far as i am concerned….

    • All of that, John, but it’s never been this bad. UNTIL TRUMP!! We used to have a pretty good system of checks and balances until Trump came along and blue his horn of hatred for the Democrats. Then all of the unscrupulous Republicans started following their Pied Piper, but not into the river to drown. They just become more vicious. Look at some of the things Marjorie Taylor Greene is doing. I watched a recent commercial wherein she’s kneeling with her AR 15, pointing ar a car named “Socialism” and blowing it up. Throwing Marcus Flowers out of one of her so-called rallies. But, I wouldn’t worry about Lindsey Graham hindering Social Security. He’ll be up before a Grand Jury in Georgia with Giuliani soon.

      • Speaking of Marjorie Traitor Greene, i live amongst a whole neighborhood of people exactly like her. I have lived here 43 years and i am seriously considering selling my house that i had built here back in 1979. My next door neighbor’s son is a full blown MAGAT and had family pictures of them with the assault rifles in front of their Christmas tree spewing all of their usual insane violence. They even had their 1 year old son with his little hand around the barrel one of their assault rifles. That is just SICK. i am so tired of all of this i do not know what to do. I live in Georgia and i hope they throw the book at Lindsey Graham and Giuliani. I would like to see those rotten asshats under a prison. The rot does run deep in the GQP. It needs to be disposed of.
        By the way Judy, do you know why the commenter ”SUNNY B” hasn’t been here lately? I hope nothing bad happened to her, She had told me a little while back that one of her carotid arteries was completely blocked and her other one was partially blocked. That sounded very serious to me. I know a good bit about medical stuff and i was very concerned about what she told me. I had a problem with blocked arteries, but my blocked arteries were in my heart. I had open heart surgery back in 2014. The surgeon cut a blood vessel out of my leg to bypass my 4 blocked coronary arteries. All of this political unrest certainly don’t help. i just do not understand all of the hate directed at us Dems just because we want to live a safe and peaceful life. Before TUMP, everything seemed to be going so great and he and his despicable Rethugs stirred up so much hate and division and ruined everything….for us…

        • Oh, no!! I wondered what happened to Sunny B.!! I so enjoy posts by her (and you.) I was honestly going to post on Mark’s NC, “What happened to Sunny B.?” Thanks for the info! By the way, I agree that asshat Trump caused all of this political hate. PLUS various idiots in Congress (Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert) attempting (and succeeding) to follow the philosophy of Monster Trump.

          • It just seems that everything seems to be bought and paid for by corrupt Billionaires too. It just amazes me and disgusts me that there are so many uneducated, stupid, gullible, idiot voters in the United States that vote for these corrupt, criminal, Rethuglicans. I read something on DKOS awhile back that said one of the members on there had a friend that was on Social Security that said, ” I don’t care if they do away with Social Security, i will move into a homeless shelter and live.” What kind of deluded fool thinks like that? These kind of people are so ingrained into the Rethug cult that they vote against their own interests and pledge their allegiance to TUMP, and only TUMP. I actually believe these half brained cretins would die for that SOB Donald TUMP. These people are pathetic.
