After watching the news conference about the debt ceiling (July 25), I have come to the conclusion that the Republicans in Congress are hypocrites.

They are blaming President Barack Obama for everything they voted for when President Bush was in office. The Republicans want to make sure that Obama does not get a second term.

Why? Is it because he is a Democrat and half black? They want all the power back. I believe they are racist.

Who do the tea partiers think they are, holding us hostage? Maybe we should have a real tea party at the Boston Harbor.

The GOP used to stand for the Grand Old Party or the Government of the People. Well, it now means the GOD, Government Of Dictatorship.
