The Good Old Boys Of The GOP

The Goal of the Good Old Boys of the GOP

© by Shyron Shenko

The goal of the Good Old Boys of the GOP -

Is to take President Obama out to sea

They want to drown him is scandals Like the IRS and Benghazi

Then say, it wasn't me! One of the Good Old Boys of the GOP?

The Good Old Boys of the GOP want to drown the President in scandals

The Good Old Boys of the GOP want to drown the President in scandals

After the expiration of Antonin Scalia – March 11, 1936-February 13, 2016

February 13, 2016

The Good-Old Boys are in a quandary

After Antonin Scalia passed away

We must replace him with a conservative

The good old boys all say

We will block Obama’s picks

Until after election day

We'll prevent JUSTICE for all (Pun intended)

So the Supreme Court we can sway

All thought of picking another Bush

Have been swept away

— Shyron E Shenko


And the Good Old Boys of the GOP

With their love of money and their lust for power

They could ruin anyone's finest hour

Like a stab in the back while handing you a flower


The Good Old Boys of the GOP

Are greedy as greedy can be

They say they are nobody's fool

But, they want to destroy our public schools

Mr.Jindal: I just wanna be Persident

Mr.Jindal: I just wanna be Persident

Bobby Jindal's rule, destroy all Public Schools


And just like Bobby Jindal's golden rule

Scroll to Continue

Handing out vouchers is his destructive tool

Vouchers to put the kids in private schools

At least until he has filled the educational pool


Jindal will give you just one hint

In two thousand sixteen he will be running for President

His show of disdain for public education sent

And money from public education, for vouchers has been spent


Jindal thinks that we don't know

And he will tell us all where we can go

With no worry of reaping what he will sow

He will go down with the rest of the GOP in tow


Where will this leave the voucher pupils?

Vouchers given by a man without any scruples

What if the voucher pupils can't get in private schools?

If the private schools don't follow Jindal's rules?



Good Old Boy Karl Rove against the Tea Party


Karl Rove, is thumbing his nose

As the rush of tea tides rose.

He will try to calm the tidal waves

So the Republican Party he can save.


As the elections of two thousand and sixteen nears.

Will the candidates be able to quell his fears?

As they are fighting all through next year

It is Democrats, not steaks the Good Old Boys want to sear!


Conservatives have no plan,

Except to get the upper hand

But they invited the Tea Party to walk right in

Now all the laws and rules they'll bend


They would have us drown in tea

With tea bags over our eyes so we can't see

And with each dirty trick they laugh with glee

Because they think they're fooling you and me


So...Karl Rove if you get swept out to sea

Just remember, when you make your plea

And while you are adrift in a sea of tea

You're one of the ones who invited tea babaggers to tea.


Rove will tell you what he wants you to do

But, the picture shows what he thinks of me and you!

But if that does not tell you what you already knew

He will boil us all in a teapot brew


Ted Cruz: We Need 100 More Like Jesse Helms In Senate

I do not like Obama Care, so said the Canadian-Cuban-American

I do not like Obama Care, so said the Canadian-Cuban-American

A Hundred Jesse Helms is needed in the Senate.


Ted said a hundred Jesse Helms is needed in the Senate.

But Ted, don't we have more than a hundred already in it?

Ted Cruz praised the things Helms had to say.

And praised the filibuster of 'Martin Luther King Day'


I'm sure Ted thinks from Canada he was heaven sent

To shutdown our government

So says this Canadian-Cuban-American, wannabe President.

And so his opinion he must vent


Good Old Boy Ted Cruz, thinking he will never lose

He hates Obama, but wishes he were in his shoes

Cruz thinks he can lead the way, Obama to impeach

But being unable to read a calendar, he cannot lead or preach


The bank crash of September 2008 was NOT Obama's fault

So you Good Old Boys must get a grip and call a halt

President Obama was NOT sworn into office until 2009

So...you see, you guys and gals are really out of line.


You are wanting to defund Obama Care

And you think people who have to do without is fair?

You said you would talk until you could not stand

With the exception of Dr. Seuss everything you said was bland


While you say it is what we Americans Want

And a threat to shutdown our government is your taunt

You have no right to say what Americans stand for

And you can't ever be our Czar.

Ted Cruz looked into the camera lens and lied

Then Harry Reid he would chide

Reid wants to shutdown the government he cried

As he pretends to be a descent man with pride


It is like our country held for ransom by the lowest sort

Then blames it on the one that is held

How can Reid be to blame?

Just because, he will not pay Cruz's blackmail game?


These tea bags and wind bags both are the same

Before they can heat up the teapot they have blown out the flame

Then because they are serving and drinking cold tea

They will say Obama's to blame

Obamacare undefeated over 50 times

Ted Cruz, wants to defund Obamacare. Each time they tried, WAS HE NOT THERE?

Ted Cruz, wants to defund Obamacare. Each time they tried, WAS HE NOT THERE?

Good Old Boy Gal Michelle Bachmann


How She got this far no one can tell

Good Old Boy Michelle tries to cover every angle

When on Crossfire with Charlie Rangel she did tangle,

Charlie said, I can't debate with you

You can't even speak the truth.


Obama wants to shut down the government she screamed,

Then this lady got really steamed

While I hate to call Ms. Bachmann a liar

But with all the lies she has told her tongue must be on fire


With Michelle's credibility at stake

Still, her ranting and raving no one can shake

We have to defund Obama Care

Through 42 tries, was she not there?


Charlie asked, do you really think Republicans can survive

When all they have going for them are Kochs and lies

To which Michelle Bachmann replies

Like the Phoenix from the ashes Republicans will rise.


Paul Ryan


Says: we need to ram the Keystone XL pipeline through

So...I tell you what I am going to do

If you don't allow property right-of-way anew

We'll have your property condemned and take it away from you.


You may think that its a sin

But you know that you just can't win

And I need that kickback don't you see

Cause, I am one of the Good Old Boys of the GOP!


Good Old Boy, Rand Paul wants to stop Hillary just for fun.


Rand Paul says Hillary shouldn't be allowed run!

She is not a proven son-of-a-gun

Not like me! I am a son of Ron

Hillary can't be allowed to get away with that!


The Good Old Boys is where it's at.

And we don't need her trying that

So don't allow her to throw in her hat

She needs to just chill and chew the fat


Another reason Hillary should not be allowed to run

Cause, when the day is over and all is said done

She is a still a Democrat

Not a Repub-LIE-CON


We have to remember all the nuts

Who are driving in the same old ruts

Who haven't got the decency or the guts

To do what is right for rest of us,

cause just like Nugient they think we are mutts

Dwight D. Eisenhower, One (1) descent Republican, but not a Tea Party one.

Dwight D. Eisenhower, One (1) descent Republican, but not a Tea Party one.

The GOP Tea Party


In their campaign, Tea Party people say; Oh! I want to work for you.

But when in office say: I will tell YOU what to do.

The Tea Party people don't Care if Obamacare is LAW.

Poor people getting insurance is what the saw.


So...off to Washington they went

But they are not there to represent, they are there for their own intent

The Tea Party is there to cause dissent

And to shutdown our government


If the ransom they demand is paid

Social Security is the next thing the Good Old Boys will take away

Then they will say: you don't need it, as long as we still get our pay

And you can try to get Social Security back some other day

Things seem to only be getting worse since I was last here. Read today that there are Trump supporters following the campaign bus around that has some candidates and campaign workers on it. They tried to run the bus off the road and crashed into one of the campaign staffers car. This was in Texas. When police were called the police refused to get involved in part because the Trump supporters had guns. The T-supporters managed to prevent 2 campaign events from happening in Texas and in other places before that. Where are the gun happy cops when you need them, and since they like to shoot people who have weapons or they imagine to have weapons, today was the perfect opportunity to target practice. None of the T-supporters were black, so maybe that was their reason for not doing their jobs or shooting anybody. Google it if you like to get more details.

This country has really gone shithole all the way with Trump at the helm. Posting this on AH &N FB.

Blessings, dear friend.

Randy Godwin from Southern Georgia on February 03, 2020:

I agree, CE. We must go through the motions even though Trump is trying hard to meddle in the election with the aid of the Senate.

It's embarrassing for the citizens of our Republic to have a dumbass as leader of the free world!

C E Clark from North Texas on February 03, 2020:

Randy, I often think voting is a waste of time given that Putin is all but certain to install Trump again in this fall's election. Given how so many of the members of Congress have changed their minds about the way they used to talk about Trump, I think they must be getting paid off now too. Even so, voting is all we have, but do we really even have that? We must vote since that is our only possible hope, even though I think it's going to make no difference.

Randy Godwin from Southern Georgia on January 31, 2020:

Indeed, and the way Trump operates, we can't really be sure our votes even count any longer, Au fait. Here In Georgia, Kemp threw man black voters off the books while running against Stacy Abrams for Governor.

Trump hasn't really been interested in stopping the Russians--or anyone else for that matter--from meddling in our elections. Isn't Ivanka somehow invested in voting machines at the present? There you go!

C E Clark from North Texas on January 31, 2020:

A great drawing of Ted Cruz!

The "good 'ol boys of the GOP" don't seem so good these days. Not to me anyway. They seem like the corrupt 'ol boys of the GOP. I really think many of them are paid agents of Russia anymore. They would never stand for any Democrat to do the things Trump has done and continues to do.

Blessings dear friend . . .

C E Clark from North Texas on December 17, 2019:

The "Good oldl boys of the GOP," are currently refusing to do what they are supposed to regarding a trial in the Senate for our illustrious president, once he is impeached -- expected in the next day or so. Both Graham and McConnell state they have already made up their minds without hearing testimony or reading the report made about the impeachment. Both are required to take an oath prior to sitting on the Senate jury and both have sworn during interviews that they will not keep their oaths. They need to be impeached too.

What a disaster for democracy and for this country the Trump presidency has been from the start and remains to this day!

Posting this on AH & FB.

Blessings, dear friend . . .

C E Clark from North Texas on September 07, 2019:

It almost seems like some if not all of the Republican leadership are also agents of Russia (or assets, if you prefer). Pence is just as bad, maybe worse, than Trump -- I read yesterday that Pence & Trump have a little feud going . . .

Hurricane Dorian screw up aside, Trump has been a busy fat bee doing all manner of horrible things.

Discovered yesterday (a light bulb came on in my head) that Trump supporters actually believe previous presidents from both parties were similar to Trump in the things they said and did. They think we're unfairly picking on Trump when Bush, Obama, and Clinton, all did the very same things!

You'd think we could recognize Trump supporters because they're hopping along with their heads up their you know whats. I guess Fox News must be feeding them all those lies and ludicrous bits of info, because I was really surprised yesterday when a friend made a statement about previous presidents all having done the same things as Trump, but no one picked on them. It's like they live in a different world. They really seem to think facts are commi-pinko inventions and so they make up their own and never bother to verify anything! They are so uninformed and ignorant that it boggles the mind.

This particular friend and I have never talked politics before and believe it or not, I listened more than I talked yesterday, so this person imagines that I am a supporter of Trump also. For that reason (I believe) this person talked more sincerely than they might have if they knew what I really think.

Lots of pundits say the Republican Party has been assimilated into a Trump Party and that the Republican Party no longer exists. They say the Republican Party has been destroyed for all intents and purposes.

A couple of Congressmen say they are challenging Trump in the next election, but the Republican Party refuses to have primaries, essentially preventing the challenges.

Something tells me it's going to get more interesting before it's over. Trump is talking more seriously about having more than 2 terms.

Me thinks the "Good Ole Boys" of the GOP are stretching things too far and something's going to snap one of these times. I really think the Russians are going to interfere in the next presidential election again, and maybe in some of the congressional races too.

Well, I hope all is well with you. They say our hundred degree weather is due to leave us after this bout with it. I hope so. Blessings dear friend . . .

Au fait, thank you for your comments, I appreciate you more than you know.

The maligning of John McCain is way over the top, but thumpers jealousy is eating him up andcritize he can’t do anything but criticize the one man who was everything he can’t come near to being and it galls him.

What I can’t understand is the GOP is so scared of the tanning booth tom they will defend him to the death of party.

Blessings my dear friend.

C E Clark from North Texas on March 22, 2019:

Just imagine if a non-Republican were to say all the ugly lies about John McCain that Trump is spewing 7 months after the man died and can't defend himself!

Interesting how Captain Bone Spurs feels entitled to criticize people who showed up to do their duty and serve their country, when he cowardly sat in school where his father bought him a degree at an Ivy League school.

There seems to be no low too low for Trump to stoop. No despicable thing he does is too low for his supporters either. Any non-Republican who dared to utter even one of the dozens of ugly things Trump is whining about McCain would have been skewered and crucified, but it is acceptable coming from Trump according to his supporters.

Why can't we all just get along? This situation is just one more answer to that question that is apparently beyond the comprehension of Republicans. So much for the Good 'Ol Boys . . .

C E Clark from North Texas on December 12, 2018:

Did you see what Orin Hatch said about Trump's criminal activity the other day? Hatch really should resign/retire. He's such a hypocrite, and it would seem that all of the Republicans' brains have turned to mush, or worse. The corruption in our government stinks to the high heavens.

Hope you are well and prepared to go back into the freezer, possibly an ice storm on the way. Take care dear friend. Blessings . . .

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on September 20, 2018:

Au fait/Cee, I think I missed some of your comments, but I thank you for all of them, I do appreciate you. I just read one about you cataract surgery, I hope it went well.

Blessings my dear friend

C E Clark from North Texas on September 18, 2018:

The Good 'Ol Boys Club was never so obvious as now.

That's an excellent drawing of Cruz! I think he's very likely to lose this coming election in favor of Beto.

Hope all is well with you Shyron. Take care, dear friend.

C E Clark from North Texas on July 26, 2018:

Seems to me "The Good 'Ol Boys of the GOP," need to do their jobs. Trump is methodically destroying the stature and credibility of this country, not to mention turning it into a world pariah and angering all of our decades long allies and friends.

Posting this poem on FB and Awesome HubPages. Getting ready for my 2nd cataract surgery tomorrow morning. Hope all is well with you dear friend.

C E Clark from North Texas on April 16, 2018:

Oh what a sticky, messy web we weave when we elect people to office who only deceive. Trump is so panicky and desperate to end the Russian investigation that you have to know he is scared to death of what is waiting to be discovered. He reminds me of a wild animal that has suddenly been ensnared or caged. They will literally die trying to escape often times. I can only believe that Trump has done something really horrific to keep carrying on as he has for months now. If he knows he has done nothing wrong, where's the problem in discovering exactly what went awry to cause the election to be thrown to Trump?

Seems strange so many Republicans are choosing not to run for their seats again, yet they allow Trump to behave worse than the worst 2-year old, and to do things that will have adverse effects on this country for a very long time.

Blessings dear friend. Take care . . .

Au Fait, I too think the Greedy Ol Politicians are enablers. pence is keeping a low profile because he plans to run for president 2020.
