The 1/20/09 GOP conspiracy is still in force



Anyone who does not believe the GOP conspired to ruin President Obama
needs to be reminded of a meeting that took place
on the night of Barack Obama's inauguration.

These are the conspirators.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R, Ca-22)

Rep. Paul Ryan (R, Wi-1)

Rep. Pete Sessions (R, Tx-32)

Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R, Tx-5)

(Ex) Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R, Mi-2)

Rep. Dan Lundgren (R, Ca-3)

Sen. Jim DeMint (R, SC)

Sen. Jon Kyl(R, Az)

Sen. Tom Coburn (R. Ok)

(Ex) Sen. John Ensign (R. Nv)

the reason lies in the wills of these sad specimens of humankind.
