The end of June brought the end of putative Republican Ray LaHood’s tenure as Barack Obama’s Secretary of Transportation.
After almost twenty years of embarrassing the very name “Republican”, we have finally seen the last of him. In another era, this prize collaborator would have made a great and effective captain of the Nazi “Jewish Police.” LaHood figuratively leaves Washington with his dignity in a match box and a portrait of Benedict Arnold under his arm.
A Barack Obama boot-licker to his last day, LaHood parroted Chuck Schumer’s lie about the future of the Republican Party, saying “We will not win another presidential election as Republicans unless we do something to fix the broken immigration system.”
LaHood called Republican opposition to The Schumer/Rubio Amnesty Bill “….. the death knell for Republicans winning national elections for decades.”
It is almost a parody of LaHood’s actual life story to say he was once Bob Michel’s Chief of Staff. Nothing says RINO like Bob Michel. LaHood is therefore naturally “dismayed” at what he sees as any sign of backbone within “his” Party. Being a mushy go along to get along RINO lacking in any principle, he wrings his hands at how some 30 to 40 Republicans in the House Majority seem only to want to say “No.”
He worries about there being greater partisanship in Washington. And of course being the boot licking fake he is, he blames Republican unwillingness to roll over and die for this “terrible situation.” It would never occur to LaHood that honest service to those who sent these 30 to 40 Republicans to Washington demands fidelity to the Constitution. To this disciple of Michel, only Juan Mc Amnesty’s “collegiality” is important as one sucks up the benefits of being a member of Congress.
Ray LaHood is exactly what’s wrong with the Republican Party. His closing bouquet to his Dear Leader says it all. Referring to Obama, he said, “….bipartisanship is in his DNA.”
Goodbye Ray, you boot-licking collaborator.
