Republicans: The Party of "Hell No, You Can't!"

Harry Reid explains why all the ridiculous GOoPer obstruction is just that:

This is an even clearer explanation of what today's GOP is all about:

"Hell no, you can't!"

That's the rallying cry of the teabaggers. That's what they'll be shouting at our faces in Searchlight and in Las Vegas on Saturday. They don't believe in hope. They'd rather not see change.

The tax cuts for the super-wealthy were working for their big corporate sponsors just fine. Along with the corporate giveaways. And the war profiteering. And the HMOs gaming the "health insurance market". And the oil and coal companies continuing to block progress on climate change to make a few more bucks.

"Hell no, you can't!"

That's all the radical right has left. Obstruction. Violence. Madness. Even some of their own are starting to run away from the runaway "Teabagger Batsh*t Crazy Express".

Even some Senate Republicans are giving indications that they want to peel off from their pack and work with Democrats to end big bank bailouts. Sens. Judd Gregg (R-NH) and Bob Corker (R-TN) said they expect Wall Street reform to pass this year. “I don’t think people realize that this is an issue that almost every American wants to see passed,” Corker said, arguing that the GOP made a “strategic error” by refusing to work in a bipartisan manner on the bill.

“There are Republicans I serve with in the Senate who frankly don’t want to ‘just say no‘ policy when it comes to major legislative initiatives,” Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) said yesterday. “And they would like to be part of this debate and offer constructive ideas to this proposal.” Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) has made clear, however, that it would fine with him if financial reform didn’t pass this year.

But don't they know? If you're a Republican...

"Hell no, you can't!"

The difference couldn't be any clearer.
