Since 1980, the Republicans have been hammering away that they and only they are the defenders of "family values". Since 1980 all I have seen from Republicans is one attack after another on families, especially non-traditional families. Yet, for some reason, the Republican Party is still able to say with a straight face that they are the only party of family values.
Mind you, this is the party that hates public education. This is the party that hates Medicare and Medicaid. This is the party that hates equal rights for gays and lesbians. This is the party that attacks unions, both private and public sector. This is the party that pushes for unbridled corporate welfare while pushing to cut government subsidies to the working poor.
This is the party that impeached a president for getting a blow job in the Oval Office from someone other than their spouse while the Speaker of the House, a member of the Republican Party, was having an extramarital affair on his second wife. This is the party that wants to strip the EPA of their authority to regulate coal mining.
This is the party that endorses Arizona's SB1070 which has the stated goal of "enforcement of attrition". This is the party that doesn't believe that those born on American soil are automatic citizens. This is the party that believes that corporations are persons.
This is the party that wants to defund Headstart. This is the party that wants to cut funding for Pell Grants. This is the party that wants to remove all federal funding for Planned Parenthood. This is the party that wants medical insurance companies to have the ability to rescind a policy that has been paid for. This is the party that thinks unemployment benefits only make the unemployed lazy.
This is the party of family values?
