Jeb Bush Is A Big Baby

Jeb Bush Is A Big Baby

         On October 24, 2015 at a South Carolina Town Hall meeting, presidential candidate Jeb Bush said, “I’ve got a lot of really cool things I could do other than sit around, being miserable, listening to people demonize me and me feeling compelled to demonize them. That is a joke. Elect Trump if you want that.

Don’t worry Jeb, you will always be America’s baby

Ted Cruz and Halloween

      Our Tea Party Hero was recently appointed as the head of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Space so Mr. Cruz put his knowledge of the NASA’s space program to good use in creating his Halloween outfit and including his corporate sponsors. It is interesting to note that along with corporate sponsors GE, BP, Shell and Exxon Ted also included White Castle, 7-Eleven and McDonald’s.

Fix Social Security and Medicare Benefits Now!

Unemployment Benefits Extension Info

Social Security and Medicare Contact Info

            Social Security Benefits were denied an increase due to inflation being down this year because of lower fuel costs. The problem is that the inflation index is determined by inflation experienced by the working, employed people, not the lifestyle and habits of retired people living on fixed incomes. To make matters even worse, some Social Security recipients will face up to a 50% increase in their Medicare monthly payments due to Social Security benefits being frozen.

           This is the third time in history that Social Security benefits have been frozen and all 3 times have been under President Obama’s presidency so do not fool yourself into believing that the Democrats are automatically on your side. Two years ago President Obama and most of Congress shafted the long term unemployed by ending their benefits during one of the coldest winters on record while President Obama vacationed in tropical Hawaii. Before Congress takes another one of their famous extended vacations, contact President Obama and House leader John Boehner ASAP;

Goodbye Eric Cantor

Eric Cantor and Halloween

            House of Representatives’ Eric Cantor lost his primary battle against a tea party candidate. Eric promptly stepped down from his position as House Majority Leader and in the spirit of compromise, Eric joined his successor in a press conference to answer questions.

Halloween, President Obama and Mitt Romney

      During their first Presidential debate Barack Obama and Mitt (Zombie) Romney met for the very first time. Although both candidates could not have been further apart politically, they did share a common opinion about each other.

Joe Biden Decides Not To Run!

           On February 7, 2014 Vice President Joe Biden said “There may be reasons I don’t run, but there’s no obvious reason for me why I think I should not run.”

           Given Joe’s use of double negatives, we offer this campaign slogan, “It is not unintentional to conclude why as my opponent’s opponent, I should not refuse to run for office”.

Say it is so Joe!

Halloween Issue #2 of Weekly Weird Republican News

      In this second Halloween Special Edition Issue we focus our attention on our arch enemy Hillary Clinton campaigning in Iowa in the spirit of Halloween. From the look of this campaign photo, it appears that Hillary may pick Beelzebub as her running mate!

Next up is our hero John Boehner extending his “no handouts” political philosophy to the sacred tradition of Halloween.  John Boehner tells any mistaken children who arrive at his door on Halloween, “No Candy For You”!  We also include an interview with Eric Cantor along with his special Halloween political adviser. 

We conclude with a special sneak preview of this year’s Halloween outfit for Ted Cruz. Our Tea Party Hero was recently appointed as the head of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Space so Mr. Cruz put his knowledge of the NASA’s space program to good use in creating his Halloween outfit and including his corporate sponsors. It is interesting to note that along with corporate sponsors GE, BP, Shell and Exxon Ted also included White Castle, 7-Eleven and McDonald’s.

Halloween Issue #1 of Weekly Weird Republican News

       The Weekly Weird Republican News Issue #15 is the first of 2 special Halloween Editions. This issue features a long rumored story about how the head of Nancy Reagan used to roam the streets of Washington D. C. on Halloween night looking for candy.

The second story details how Republicans Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Eric Cantor, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are scary enough to experience individually, but on Halloween night they are frightening roaming the streets of Washington D.C. as a gang.

With this Republican gang, you can be sure there will be more tricks than treats!

Halloween and Mitt Zombie

(in the spirit of Halloween . . .)

(From the 2012 Presidential Campaign Trail)

      It can be confusing being both a zombie and a presidential candidate. This confusion can lead to gaffes such as when Mitt (Zombie) Romney confused his zombie life with his life of a presidential candidate when he pleaded for more Bains instead of more Brains.

Mitt Zombie Presidential Popularity Poll

      Here is a recent poll illustrating the declining popularity of Mitt Zombie over the past four years.

     Bub’s recent surge in the polls is not surprising due to his ability to learn and his campaign slogan “I can learn”

    Old Guthrie’s increase in popularity is interesting because he is not an American born citizen and his campaign slogan is “Let Sleeping Corpses Lie”, although he does promise that if elected, everyone will receive a free Breakfast at  Manchester Morgue.

Halloween and Mitt Romney Zombie

Halloween Mitt Zombie

(in the spirit of Halloween . . .)

From the 2012 Presidential Election

       To start his presidential campaign, Mitt Romney Zombie seeks to bridge the differences between zombies and the common voter with his “Zombies are People Too My Friend” speech. Every four years Mitt walks the earth seeking new voters for his never ending presidential campaigns.

Halloween and Congress

Republican Halloween Meme Mike Meshew

Halloween time is here again, ain’t been round since who knows when.

           Normally Senator Rand Paul, Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Mitch McConnell and House of Representative leaders John Boehner would be frightening to experience individually, but when they roam Washington D.C. on Halloween night as a gang, the results can be horrific.

To calm your friends, family and yourself through this ordeal, please recite the following poem;

Midnight falls across the land,

The darkest hour is close at hand,

Politicians looking for support,

Of Safety Nets to Abort

And though you’re filled with fear,

For this you must remember,

That you can get your revenge,

By voting this November.

Halloween Mitt Romney Zombie

Mitt Romney Zombie Fast Food Meme

(in the spirit of Halloween . . .)

From the 2012 Presidential Election

          The life of a zombie Presidential Candidate is hectic. Resisting the temptation to eat the hand you are supposed to shake, a zombie politician can work up a real appetite. Here Mitt (Zombie) Romney went to a zombie restaurant but was so impatient that he decided to eat his own arm and hand instead of waiting 15 minutes for his meal to be served. Mitt Zombie redefines the concept of “fast food”.

Yowser!

John Boehner and Richie Mitt Zombie – The Poor Little Rich Zombie

       Poor Little Mitt Zombie, he was born on third base and thought he hit a triple. Born with a cash infusion, here is Richie Mitt Zombie standing behind the x-ray scanner to prove his net worth to Uncle John Boehner, who appears to be overwhelmed by Mitt’s wealth. Earned or lazy money, it’s all good.

There is a difference between having lots of money and being rich.
