A government that governs. Now that’s a novel idea.

Is U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner crying wolf? Screwing the pooch? Kicking the dog?

Whatever the Republican leader is doing it doesn’t appear to resemble governing. Once again The Boner is going to the well for a debt ceiling tangle, insisting that ceiling cannot be raised again without “spending cuts and reforms that exceed the amount of the debt limit increase.” This means, of course, that Bone wants to hold the U.S. government hostage until the Republicans get their way. Funny thing they are doing this now, only a month or two before the national political conventions which will do nothing of note except name Mitt Romney’s GOP running mate.

Hey, we get the Republican party wants a government that does nothing. But we’ve got a totally dysfunctional Congress that will not allow the government to even DO NOTHING! It’s ridiculous.

The president started off his term in office reaching out to the opposing party. The other side didn’t want it mainly because their backers don’t want a black president. That’s pretty much the bottom line. Obama isn’t Socialist. He wouldn’t make a pimple on Karl Marx’s ass! The problem is a bunch of rich, racist people are pissed a black person — even one who is halfway white — would dare take the office of president. That’s the real rub.

Yeah, you can say all this culture war and religious war bulls**t. But it doesn’t mean a thing if you ain’t got that swing. And you know what that swing is all you Obama haters? It’s swinging on the end of a rope on a tree like the lynchings of old, the only solution for uppity Niggers, right? Sorry about the “N” word but I had to use it to make a point.

If New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Newark Mayor Cory Booker can make fun of themselves, together for a little spoof video, then why can’t politicians who are supposed to be elected for the common good do some good? Because they are all political putzes. Hacks.

Instead of just electing or re-electing a president, how about electing a president and Congress all of the same party and in overwhelming numbers. That way, maybe something can get done despite the stupidity of those who see government as evil. Actually, with some luck maybe the electorate will do so. Obama and a full Democratic House would be one hell of a birthday present, my birthday being in late October. We’ve got to do something. Our country is in bad need of a government that governs.
