The fact that their invitations were last minute exposes bigotry all by itself.<quoted text>
You have GOT to be kidding... These republicans knew full well that these events were taking place. It's not like they came from out of the blue.
If they felt at any time that they wished to be among the speakers, they would have reached out to the organizers and made an attempt--even if they felt as though they were being excluded.
No politician would EVER sit idly by and not attend such a momentous occasion unless they simply did not want to be a part of the program.
A powerful politician such as Boehner has the ability to do anything he wants in Washington. His office could have easily reached out and helped coordinate some kind of participation in this celebration. But he did not. None of them did.
The "we were invited too late to change our schedules" excuse holds NO water. If they had wanted to be there, they could have changed their schedules. They do it all the time based on whatever is being asked of them.
Bottom line--they didn't want to go. They thought the program would end up embarrassing them and the RNC's platform. So they just stayed home.
But preceded by the illegal behavior of the ObamaNation with the IRS and Justice Dept. only confirm the division this president solicits.
