I guess this is what you get when your president is "Enfant Terrible."
I blame President Obama for the absolutely vicious attacks we are seeing upon the Tea Party and conservative independents. It shows just how hysterical the ruling class elites have become that they are going full barrel at us for demanding our government cut its out-of-control spending. It's just shocking to most of us that this level of vitriol would be leveled at people simply saying cut spending. It's not like we're demanding something outlandish. We are just saying spending has to be cut. We are running 1.5 trillion dollar deficits and the media seems to believe this is just the normal course of business.
From Thomas "Alarmist" Friedman, he writes, "If sane Republicans do not stand up to this Hezbollah faction in their midst, the Tea Party will take the G.O.P. on a suicide mission." 'Can't we do this right?' July 26, 2011, New York Times. Huh? So, are we to believe that cutting spending is now akin to being Hezbollah, a group that shoots rockets into Israel and demands genocide of the Jewish people? Besides, why should Friedman care if the Tea Party takes 'the GOP on a suicide mission?' Friedman cannot stand Republicans just because they're Republicans. He's nothing more than a hack Democratic Party shill without the brains or sense to know if you create too much dependent government spending, the productive sector will shrink, as we are witnessing with the .4% growth in the 1st quarter of this year. We are watching a real time, real life demonstration of how huge government and huge regulation literally starve the economy to death. It's happening before our very eyes.
But we are extreme terrorists, oh and Sarah Palin because of those bullseyes which reached inside Jared Loughner's brain and forced him to shot people.
In fact, the DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was quoted in Politico as saying;
“Aren’t we at the point where the closer we get to chaos, the more concern that there should be about coming to the table and compromising with Democrats?” Wasserman Schultz asked. “This is not leadership. This is almost like dictatorship. I know they want to force the outcome that … their extremists would like to impose. But they are getting ready to spark panic and chaos, and they seem to be OK with that. And it’s just really disappointing, and potentially devastating.”
What a strange definition of dictatorship Ms.Schultz has. So, if you are negotiating a deal, and you stand pat on an offer, now you are suddenly a dictator? When I watch Pawn Stars and Rick tells someone pawning their Rolex that he can only give them two hundred dollars, puff, Rick has suddenly become a dictator according to her definition. Well then, the Democrats haven't even proposed a plan and yet in the Senate are just saying 'nope.' Are they dictators too?
As far as panic and chaos is concerned. It is the president with his arbitrary pre-birthday drop dead date that is ratcheting up the panic. It is their Party-run media that are constantly making it seem like it's the Countdown to the Apocalypse. To say the Republicans and Tea Party are demanding real cuts regardless of His Inadequacy's birthday party plans is hardly chaotic. It is simply that we don't buy the hashish they are selling.
So, we are disingenuous alarmists now. This is just like when Palin writes on her Facebook page. All of a sudden, when she told the country about the Democratic Party death panels in Obamacare, she was spreading fear and panic in the elderly. When she, correctly I might add, said that forcing doctors to give end of life diatribes to the elderly and that the Independent Payment Advisory Board would require rationing, the prog/soc wing of the Democratic Party accused her of fomenting lies. Unfortunately, we now know that is exactly what the IPAB is doing, figuring out rationing schedules.
We are even battling the dummkopfs in our our movement, the Republican elites. The Wall Street Journal decided to call us 'hobbits' because supposedly our plan is foolhardy and quixotic. We are stupidly, to use a famous Obama term, trying to cut too much. We need to just settle back, win next year's election, and when the overwhelming debt and outrageous spending drowns the economy, we will fix it. Maybe. Well, that's the plan anyway.
Who in their right mind believes we can throw $2.7 trillion more on the gargantuan debt we already have and not face an economic morasse? The elites apparently.
So, Sen. John McCain trots out to the Senate floor and reads the Wall Street Journal editorial in which they call us 'hobbits' and that the fruit of our efforts are Sharon Angle and Christine O'Donnell. What a hoot. Yosemite McCain, after running a lackluster campaign that refused to address Obama's obvious socialistic tendencies, is now giving us a lecture on campaign tactics. McCain had the courage to select Sarah Palin as his vice p
