Darrell Issa proposes renaming the ocean after Ronald Reagan

The laser-like Republican focus on jobs continues:

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is floating legislation that would name most U.S. coastal waters after former President Ronald Reagan.

Issa reintroduced his bill Wednesday to rename the country’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), which generally extends from three miles to 200 miles offshore, as the Ronald Wilson Reagan Exclusive Economic Zone.

To be fair, we’re not talking about renaming all the oceans after Ronald Reagan. Just any parts of them within 200 miles of America, in honor of the guy who first said “yeah, all that over there? That’s ours.”

While creating at least several jobs in the lucrative map-printing sector of the economy, this otherwise seems a rather pointless little exercise. For one thing, I thought true conservatives hated Ronald Reagan now, but it turns out that while they now hate most of what he said and did, they still like putting his name on things.

Reagan was a godawful President.

h/t: Hunter at Daily Kos

Republicans are beyond useless. They lie about wanting to help the economy, when all they want to do is defund Planned Parenthood, NPR, PBS, AmeriCorps, and name things after Ronald Reagan.

If they were proposing ideas to help the economy, and their ideas were bad, then at least the ideas could be improved upon. But they have no intention of doing ANYTHING to improve our country.

Recall All Republicans 2012.

WTF!?

America: But what about jobs?

Republicans: LOL NOPE
