I do not know if you are aware of this, but the Republicans trot out somebody each week to deliver their “weekly address” in rebuttal of the President’s weekly address. This week they spun the bottle and it pointed to John Cornyn of Texas.

I have never posted any of the Republican weekly addresses because they are just too crazy. However, I’m going to post this one by Senator Cornyn just so you can witness for yourself how delusional these folks really are. They are either delusional or complete hypocrites and liars. I prefer to think of them as delusional, giving them the benefit of the doubt. It is entirely possible, though, that they are hypocrites and liars. You decide.

Be sure to continue on to the previous post for the real weekly address.

Disclaimer: John Cornyn and Ted Cruz are the senators from my home state of Texas. I have never voted for either of them and never will.

“End This Government Shutdown”

From the White House weblog:

In this week’s address, President Obama said that Republicans in the House of Representatives chose to shut down the government over a health care law they don’t like. He urged the Congress to pass a budget that funds our government, with no partisan strings attached. The President made clear he will work with anyone of either party on ways to grow this economy, create new jobs, and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul – but not under the shadow of these threats to our economy.
