It's Official: The GOP Is Not Interested in Helping America

McHenry says what we already know: the GOP is interested in nothing other than being obstructionist wankers.

Quote of the day:

"We will lose on legislation. But we will win the message war every day, and every week, until November 2010. Our goal is to bring down approval numbers for [Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and for House Democrats. That will take repetition. This is a marathon, not a sprint." -- Republican Representative Patrick McHenry, offering what Greg Sargent rightly calls "an unusually blunt description of the Republican strategy right now."

In case you were under the mistaken assumption that the GOP is interested in anything other than being obstructionist wankers, or that they might be putting forth an alternative agenda with new and innovative ideas to help America, they are officially not.

Have a nice day.
