Need no more Libyan “answers”, 2nd-term plan: Ties that bind(h)er to ObamaDems

Beware the temptation of pride

We have the answers. The answers are disturbing. Further questioning of Obama isn’t necessary. Let’s just fire him and Hillary a week from today.

Its time for timid Republicans who have to rub shoulders with Democrats inside the Beltway or in polite conversation to accept the obvious and muster the courage to state it publicly:

President Barack Obama and his Democrat Party policies don’t work, never have, never will. The Democrats know their policies don’t work yet advocate them anyway. Democrats who aren’t naive and/or ignorant, have a character problem.

Too many TV talk show hosts and honorable friends in Congress want an “out” so their Democrat friends will still “like”. This is understandable human nature. But we have a nation to save from the liberal ash heap of history.

Yes, a conservative could lose some friends by stating the obvious, rather than prodding Obama for yet another answer, hoping he finally utters something that we can all agree is “reasonable” and thus, move on. But why not utter the truth and make some new friends, like, for instance, supposed Democrat Party constituencies who they have continually insulted for the past 40+ years. Consider:

  • Seniors that were told Reagan and Newt would take away their Medicare and Social Security;
  • Young people whose futures are mortgaged for the instant gratification of Baby Boomers and sold student-loan inflated, useless educations;
  • Women promised that Uncle Sam as Daddy is better than any husband
  • Blacks told they are too stupid to obtain a photo ID to vote
  • Poor people seduced into deeper dependency on government by Obamaphones

Of course, the leaders of the Democrat Party aren’t, for the most part, seduced. Rather, they wink at each other while ginning up faux outrage as the prelude to stimulus and Obamacare bills that increase their ever bigger government, plantation overseer power and pay the salaries of more bureaucrats that the Republicans never seem to be able to fire.

It takes courage to finally tell a naked king that he has no clothes, and your yellow dog Democrat aunt that she has been fooled for 40 years. I was a coward for 38 years, hence my compassion for former fellow Democrats who didn’t move to Atlanta and meet Cynthia McKinney, but I digress.

Americans have been re-educated in the failures of liberalism over the past four years as at no other time since the late 70s. That whole Clinton as a Democrat presiding over the affluent late 90s seems to have watered down the lesson learned after Carter/Tip O-Neal and Reagan’s Morning in America. Most voters seem not to get the importance of Congress, and especially the first Republican one in 40 years that “Newt-ed” Bill into continuing supply side.

Then came Bush and Iraq, and the white guilt vote for supposed hope and change; all made possible by a variation of what President Reagan warned about in another context in his Evil Empire speech:

So, I urge you to speak out against those who would place the United States in a position of military and moral inferiority. You know, I’ve always believed that old Screwtape reserved his best efforts for those of you in the church. So, in your discussions of the nuclear freeze proposals, I urge you to beware the temptation of pride — the temptation of blithely declaring yourselves above it all and label both sides equally at fault, to ignore the facts of history and the aggressive impulses of an evil empire, to simply call the arms race a giant misunderstanding and thereby remove yourself from the struggle between right and wrong and good and evil.

Beware the temptation of pride. The parties are not the same, despite the GOP’s past sins and present timidity. Obama and the Dems make conservatives and Republicans look frugal because they tripled down on Bush’s deficits. We think Obama has made the difference clear through epic failure, even before the historic 2010 GOP mid-term landslide, and so hence…

The 2012 GOP Landslide II cometh.
