When you build a house of cards, it’s just a matter of time before there’s a collapse….
Well….appears it’s come to this….
The Democrats, the President included, are in complete disarray. Everywhere you turn, their paranoia and lunacy has reached the surface. Witness the remarks about AG Holder (see previous post!). They are grasping at whatever they can to deflect and defend an incompetent Administration and President. Now, I know politics is about as cyclical a phenomenon as there is, but Mr. Obama has shown time after time he lacks the leadership skills and determination required to grasp the seriousness of the problems we face as a nation. His Administration and their allies in Congress have proceeded contentiously (that is when they actually DO something!) on nearly every concern. From energy to healthcare to national defense. They resort to snide arrogance when responding to genuine, valid criticism of their costly, burdensome programs and policies.
Jonah Goldberg has a great piece at National Review Online: OBAMA’S TRUTHINESS
It has a great header: THE TRUTH MUST BE BENT TO SHOW THAT IT’S SOMEBODY ELSE’S FAULT
That says a lot about this President. I believe more than I ever have, that Mr. Obama has a deep seated disdain and resentment for this country. He was immersed in that notion from a young age. Fate and politics presented him with an opportunity to act upon those feelings and the nation has suffered for it.
The Democrat leadership, such as it is, has shown about as much backbone when dealing with our nation’s problems, as a jellyfish. Nancy Pelosi’s foolish remarks about Mr. Holder’s contempt of Congress citation being an attempt to restrict voter rights was one of the STUPIDEST things she’s ever uttered. And Ms. Pelosi has a long history of stupid! Meanwhile, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has been nothing more than a figurehead in the Senate. He’s a sad, shell of a man who is far past the point where he should be put out to pasture. His only accomplishment of note has been delaying the Senate’s vote on a budget…which is likely reaching a record number of days, if it hasn’t already. The remaining Democrats of note have followed their same, tired playbook of demonizing Republicans given any opportunity. Time after time they attempt to frame the narrative of any serious approach to cutting spending as detrimental to this group or that constituency. And, of course, the media and pundits play right along. They would like nothing more than to ignore the problems…period. THAT is their answer. Ignore it!
Barack Obama has never been President. He has been “candidate” Obama for his entire term. And should the country have the misfortune of four more years under his helm, it’s almost certain we will face further destruction and divisiveness. His agenda will promote costly, worthless programs which will result in nothing but more debt. Along the way, he will ask for more from every taxpayer while deriding those that protest as greedy and selfish. He will operate under the notion of being more than willing to accept accolades for his false concerns combined with condescension when confronted with the failure of his policies.
Mitt Romney is seeking to put an end to the malaise..the anger…and the frustration we’ve seen for several years now. Can he do it?…It would remain to be seen should he be given the chance. He will be faced with an army of detractors. One thing of which I am certain. I have no doubt he is aware of the national mood. He is aware that Barack Obama foolishly and willfully took what could have been considered a mandate and squandered it. He is aware that Mr. Obama seeks to frame this nation in HIS own image. He is aware that Mr. Obama has little regard for the value and beliefs that millions of Americans still hold dear. You, along with me, may not agree with Mr. Romney’s approach to certain issues. But it is an absolute certainty he does not regard the COUNTRY as the problem…unlike Mr. Obama. My hope is, come November, American voters will put their faith in themselves, again. And not in Barack Obama.
