Republicans, upset over their loss of power in the last election, have decided upon some new political tactics. Tactics that anyone who went through Kindergarden should recognize.
Right wingers are ganging together and going against everything that Obama puts forth. To enforce this they and hate radio stations are using threats and insults against conservatives who do side with Obama and his policies.
In talk forums they have agreed to deride and belittle every platform that Obama's cabinet puts forth.
It should be noted that during the last administration all these same actions would be slandered as being 'traitorous' by Republican pundits.
Another tactic is to stand off to the side and wait for things to fall apart by not helping out, an act that is equivalent to hanging around after a car accident and not lending aid to see if anyone dies.
Other tactics they plan on using include continuously being excused to go potty to create a filibuster, saying no to everything as soon as a speaker begins to talk, and saying that all Democrats have cooties and running away from them. As a last stop emergency measure to get their way the Repubs plan to all hold their breath in unison until they turn blue and die.
The Democrats are considering baiting them to see if they will make good on this.
