Response to MountainFool (Reply #11)

36. Welcome to DU, MountainFool!

Man, I was just having that argument with my best friend. "So disappointed in Obama," she says. It's all his fault. He was woefully unprepared for the job. Blah-blah-blah... and I, too, remind her that if it weren't for the fucking GOP CONgress doing its damnedest to foil everything he tried, obstruct everything he proposed, insulted him, attacked him, criticized everything about him except his emails (although I'm sure they would have tried that eventually, too), he'd have done even better than it's widely-acknowledged he's already done. And she won't hear of it. "Oh, no, calimary, it's his fault for this and his fault for that. It's been hard on my family." She won't hear of the problems with the ACA being of such greater magnitude and mess in red states, where CON governors refuse to take any of the federal funding and stand in the way and posture and strut about how their side is so much more moral and "American."

We're back to the era of the massive manifestation of GOP entitlement. They feel they're entitled to rule. And that's that. That's this personality complex that side of the aisle seems to have. I've sensed it from almost everybody I can think of who has an "R" by their name. They're better. They're entitled to govern. It's their right, their purview, their territory, their exclusive jurisdiction. (No wonder that whole "build the wall" thing was so popular on that side of the aisle!) It's THEIR way or bust. Because. Because it's their entitlement. I often refer to it as the World's Biggest Entitlement Program. Not Social Security. Not Medicare. Not food stamps. It's the GOP's purported "divine" right to rule.
