Calling this vote stupid might be cutting the GOP too much slack

Bob Belvedere is amazed at how stupid the GOP can be at times. Voting with radicals? Really?

From The Hill, Pete Kasperowicz reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to the Drudge Report]:

The House is expected to approve legislation as early as Monday that would provide grant money to states to fight bullying at schools.

The bill is backed by six Democrats, but also House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas), and will be brought up Monday afternoon under a suspension of House rules. That process is usually reserved for non-controversial bills, and requires a two-thirds majority vote for passage.

Therefore, the bill stands a very good chance of passing.

Why?

This is nothing but more Federal intrusion into the business of the Several States [I thought the GOP was against that kind of thing?] and, tell me where in the damn Constitution does it say the Congress has the power over such matters [you know, that crumbling piece of paper you swore to preserve, protect, and defend]?

The House Of Representatives of The United States Of America voting on bullying?

It get’s worse:

“It is time for us to stand together and stop bullying,” said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), the sponsor of the bill. “Everyone deserves to feel safe and free from persecution.”I urge my colleagues from both sides of the aisle to vote in favor of my bill in order to keep U.S. citizens safe from harassment and to work toward making America bully-free,” she added.

Why for God’s sake, GOP, are you voting for anything that corrupt, arrogant, apparatchikian-Leftist ignoramus supports?

Doesn’t the fact that she is a committed radical make you suspect that she has ulterior motives?

Are you afraid of the demonization the Democrats will engage in if you vote against the bill? Well, here’s some news for you [although you should have known this by now]: they’ll find a way to do it anyway.

What can I add? Nothing! this is what happens when you vote without remembering your principles.

  1. Lamar Smith is smarter than this. Sad.

    Most of these anti-bullying initiatives are just another big gubmint sham to pump a lefty chickenshit agenda on America’s schoolkids, while wasting taxpayer dollars. Why is anybody in the GOP supporting this garbage?

    In thee words of Fausta Wertz, “The Republicans, they thirst for death.”
