Divine Right

The Republicans are still getting on my last nerve. They don’t seem to be doing any of the tough gut work. They appear on TV looking like they are in on the “secrets of the universe.” If the Democrats would just stop governing, they imply, then the Republicans could reveal the perfect strategy to employ for financial reform, the exact mix for health care reform, the perfect solution to the immigration problem, the jobs problem, the whatever problem. They act so reasonable and yet so superior (smug?). They give the impression that they are in possession of the “answers,” that the Democrats do not have a clue and that the horrible Democrats are riding roughshod over the wonderful Republicans. That’s why the Republicans are unable to share the correct answers with us at the present time. Through some kind of chicanery the Democrats are able to hold on to their power, which they shouldn’t have because they don’t know the “secrets of the universe.”
