Does “GOP” now stand for the “Grand Old Peace” party? You’d think so if you listen to many Republican conservative talkers, pundits, and nervous politicians holding their fingers up to the wind, then holding up a certain finger to the White House.
The sense of history that accompanies the inauguration of Barack Obama as the nation’s 44th president is particularly keen for John Chiazza of Gilbert.
Mike Reagan: Well, Democrats in Washington did it. They unilaterally passed a $938 billion health care plan that was overwhelmingly disapproved by Americans.

Congressional Republicans announced over the weekend that they intend to target and remove the ACA, which they derisively call Obamacare. Has no Republican strategist pointed out to this awful party that it has put itself in a ‘lose-lose big’ dilemma? They lost trying to destroy the ACA, and Americans are poised with daggers awaiting the 2014 elections. However, the ‘lose big’ part of the equation would occur if they actually succeeded in destroying the ACA. How do they plan to replace tens of millions of voters who find that our sick health care system has been returned to the bad old days before President Obama offered them a breath of hope and fresh air? It’s a t-publican elevator with only one button: DOWN.

Both after President Obama rolled out his jobs plan and again when he called for deficit reduction, the usual suspects in the Republican Party streamed to the microphones to accuse him of "class warfare" against the rich. Naturally, both our Arizona senators parroted the views of their leaders and corporate masters. Now, perhaps the GOP is expecting the White House and congressional Democrats to issue vociferous denials and run for cover. Don't do it! The time is now to stand tall and declare, "Yes, class warfare is exactly what this is, and we intend to lead our classes into battle!"
Gov. Jan Brewer appointed her third justice Friday to the five-member Arizona Supreme Court, once again, a Republican just like her.
