Ghouls and robbers

They cheered for the prospect of people dying because they had no health insurance at the Republican debate tonight. And as if that wasn't bad enough, they cheered when Rick Perry said that the programs that brought us out of the Great Depression and that keep millions of people out of poverty are wrong.

I would love for Rick Perry to get the nomination of his party. He'd spend the next year defending the position that Social Security, the most loved and cherished piece of legislation ever, is wrong and should be scrapped. I can see millions of seniors voting against him because of that one issue alone.

So to recap, Republicans want more money to kill people in wars but no money to keep people alive. And what money there is that's keeping seniors and disabled folks afloat, they want to take away. Yeah, that's some sound strategy.

Something tells me more than a few grandmas would still go out and vote for the idiot as long as Fox keeps reminding them there's an African-American in the White House.

Maybe it's childish, but Rick Perry always brings to mind the old labor chant, "GOP...SOB!"
