They claim there is something in the water here in DC, has been for decades. Something that turns normal, well meaning human beings into arrogant idiots (a nasty combination if there ever was one). It doesn’t happen to everyone, but it happens to a lot them. The Watergate idiocy, Clinton’s intern problem, congressional bribes and senatorial mistresses. All idiotic and arrogant acts by someone drunk with power in DC.
Whatever it is, it seems to have taken a serious hold on our young and inexperienced President and his young and inexperienced team. And it seems to have gripped the liberal democrats in a vice of pure madness. I mean, these people are just not coherent anymore. They sound like they need to take some time away from the stress of life and put their mental house back in order.
The first sign of madness came from Howard Dean on Hardball, in front of an incredulous Chris Mathews:
It is insane to come out and say the Massachusetts voters were sending Scott Brown to DC to push the liberal Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda ahead (as oppose to sending liberal Dem Coakley). Dean is in such deep denial he has left reality. Even Christ Mathews called it ‘crazy’.
And Dean is not the only one. The list of excuses used by the Democrats to ignore the will of the people is stunning in its depth as well as its self delusion (or attempt at deception, if you are of the cynical view).
In a recent CNN poll a whopping 70% (question 27) said it was GOOD for the country that Democrats lost their supermajority (and with it free reign to pass whatever nonsense they wanted). The Democrats had a thin slice of political capital remaining, since the same poll showed 48% of the public angry at both parties, with only 9% just angry at the GOP and 11% just angry at the Democrats (question 11). That is a pretty stunning situation, clearly emanating from the political center of the country. The segment which determines elections and has swung heavily away from the liberals in the three big elections since Obama took office.
But the Democrats are hell bent in raising the already red hot ire of the people to historic levels with their latest insanity – straight from the White House and the lips of President Obama. I am talking about thatÂ charade of a budget ‘freeze’:
THE OBAMA administration estimates that theÂ selective spending freeze it will propose next week would save $10 billion to $15 billion in fiscal 2011, which begins Oct. 1.
After a year of mind boggling increases in discretionary spending, the President is pretending that freezing at this new level of massive red ink will save us. We are facing a deficit this year of $1.35 trillion and he is promising to save $15 billion? As Krauthammer said on O’Reilly last night, that is round off error in the budget. I fail to see how this saves us from anything. But it seems the White House as a poll tested answer to voter anger and they plan to deploy it.
This is a pathetic attempt to fool the people into thinking the President and his liberal buddies in Congress are doing something, when they are really doing nothing. It is a ruse to hide behind and buy time. Just like Obama’s fake ‘created and saved jobs’ crap and using made up numbers from people getting bailout money without any definition or rigor to claim they were helping the unemployment situation, Obama’s team is peddling fiction.
But this is the kind of simpleton deception that fools a 5 year old – not voting, intelligent, hard working adults. Obama’s acting like the most amateur of amateur magicians, trying to pretend he made a coin disappear all the while it is in plain sight in his hand. Worse, he and his liberal friends think we should be taking all this nonsense seriously!
The President of the United States is going to get up in front of Congress, the nation and the world tonight, and with a face of sincere determination, claim he is going to do something about jobs and the economy. And then he is going to lay on this whopper of duplicitous deception.
That will signal the end of his administration and the Democrat party as we know it. He will not be a one term great president, but a one term historic failure. Because America will not tolerate being fed simpleton BS. The insult to American intelligence will be beyond the pale, beyond what even Mad Joe Klein did in Time when he called us all dodos.
At least Klein was being open in his idiotic arrogance. President Obama is going to try and fool us with his. It will be a sad wonder to watch and experience. And voters will give the President and the Democrats their answer in November.
