Time for GOP to get with program

There they go again; GOP monkey business….

Dudes! You had your moment in the sun, but the clouds of doubt have rained on your parade.

When you won in 2010, it was on the issue of jobs and you also claimed to have the heartbeat of the nation. Once in power though, you mainly concentrated on matters of social behavior, which is really none of your business nor some divine right you think you possess to force your beliefs on anyone. This past election shows what matters most to people today and you paid the price for being off track.

So now, even after a clear message from the majority, you guys are concentrating on what? Anyone will tell you they mourn with the families who lost love ones, but this obsession with the tragic events in Benghazi won’t put Americans back to work! We really don’t care what general slept with whomever, only having sympathy for the spouses and kids betrayed here. Oh, and by the way, we’re not interested in your continual conspiracy theories; we just want to go back to work! Now! You remember right; to the good old days of an honest day’s pay for an honest day’s work.

It brings to mind the quote, “either you’re part of the problem or part of the solution…” so keep it up, but don’t blame us again if you guys lose your jobs! Like figure it out. Isn’t that what we’re so handsomely paying you for?
