That Meg Whitman maid thing – it ain’t going to work. Everyone knows ‘illegal’ immigrants lie to work here in the US. Everyone knows the person who broke the law and her word was not Meg Whitman. And the party that defends illegal immigrants and tries to give them blanket and full amnesty is the left – not the right. The dirty trick playing out in CA is no better than the lies Alan Grayson manufactured in FL. The Dems are going dirty, and it will not reflect bad on their opponents.
In fact, what it reminds everyone most about is the strong arm, lying and bribing tactics used by Obama, Pelosi & Ried to push Obamacare through congress. After putting a comedian up to testify on a serious subject, trotting out people paid to turn on their former employers is just another fanciful show for the cameras. No one is buying this crap. So why do it?
Well, desperation is one answer. But I think the biggest reason is Democrats don’t think anyone is nearly as smart and crafty as they are! Why else would Speaker Pelosi and VP Biden make the childish claim that the Dems will still be in the majority in November (the new Congress is not seated until January of course). Only someone who thought their supporters were pure dolts would run around and make that a rallying cry. Sadly, a lot of ‘journalists’ echoed those claims as if they carried some kind of bravado and leadership!
No, it is clear the Democrats see themselves as the pinnacle of humankind and everyone else bumbling peasants too dim to understand liberal greatness. It is a very convenient way to paper over a dangerous combination of ignorance and arrogance run amok. Take it from a rocket scientist with a BS in biology and a love of all things science, Pelosi, Reid and Obama are not all that sharp, even as politicians go.
Victor Hansen uncovered the real force behind the lame smear campaigns coming out in each race now:
The bookish, twice-unsuccessful Democratic presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson once sighed that if most thinking people supported him, it still wouldn’t be enough in America because “I need a majority.”
In the 2008 campaign, Michelle Obama at one point said of her husband’s burden, “Barack is one of the smartest people you will ever encounter who will deign to enter this messy thing called politics.”
That sense of intellectual superiority was channeled by Barack Obama himself when he later tried to explain why his message was not resonating with less astute rural Pennsylvanians: “And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
Folks, these people who have screwed up wasting over $3 trillion dollars baling out CEOs on wall street and power players on K-Street (while leaving Main Street to suffer) think you will be fooled by a maid who lied to her employer and who is now lying about her employer. Who has the credibility problem here? Who is the illegal one here? Who is hanging on the arm of a slimy lawyer?
This doesn’t take a rocket scientist to unravel. The upper middle class – who are reasonably successful, capable of taking care of themselves and the driving force behind this economy – are invisible to the liberals. They have no idea we exist because these liberals don’t work for a living. They don’t build businesses or lead groups of workers or launch products or perform valuable services for others. They don’t make a living by producing or helping, they read and theorize all day long in tenured positions in colleges and universities. Never growing up, never being on their own having to survive on their own. This is what the Obama administration is filled with – armchair experts with no hands-on experience.
They don’t understand why those who have succeeded, who grew beyond college and school and went into the world to make a living the hard way, are not impressed with their failures or their egos any more. As the saying goes: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice …
That ain’t going to happen!
