GOP blowhards lead the chorus

Gosh, who could have seen this coming? Anyone? Sure!

Three Republicans who are trying to position themselves as their party’s 2024 presidential nominee are leading the opposition chorus to President Biden’s Cabinet appointments.

They are Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Josh Hawley of Missouri. They have voted against every one of Biden’s Cabinet choices, except two. They are seeking to elbow past each other to the front rank of the next presidential primary season.

My particular interest, of course, is in Cruz, the junior senator from the state where I live. I detest his politics, his general demeanor, his loudmouth quality, his blatant self-promotion. He and Hawley stood front and center in challenging the 2020 presidential election results, declaring some unfounded fear of “widespread vote fraud.”

They disgraced themselves and  the offices to which they were elected.

And I cannot neglect to mention Cruz’s laughable attempted vacation Cancun, Mexico, while the state he represented was battling the frigid February snow and ice storm, the one that knocked electricity out for millions of Texans. He high-tailed it back to Texas when his travel plans were revealed.

So, it’s no surprise that these presidential pretenders are leading some sort of amen chorus in opposition to President Biden’s choices to run the executive branch of government.

All of ’em make me want to hurl.

Oh, but in the world is going to happen to these clowns if the former Imbecile in Chief, Donald Trump, decides to run? Stay tuned to see how this clown show plays out.
