Sweeping Tea-Party supporters victories plus Rep. Governor of New Jersey makes unions cry by talking frankly to them.
Liberals don’t understand what’s going on and that’s understandable. If you spend months spewing condescension on a group of people, you will probably end up believing yourself. Plus, the impending catastrophe is beyond their ability to process.
The Republican establishment does not seem to understand much better. Many within it seem shocked that unknown backed by a non-existent Tea Party kick their asses. Only exception is Michael Steele, Republican National Committee Chairman who is wisely in hiding. I always said he was a smart man, just too much of a gentleman to get down in the gutter and gouge eyes when that’s needed.
I want to help by explaining to both liberals and Establishment Reps what ails them. Won’t take long; that’s why it eludes them.
First, many Americans, conservatives, independents, and increasingly registered Democrats, hate with a passion the Federal Government taking their livelihood by force and setting their children into debt to support social program that they don’t approve of.
The fact that this is done with massive waste of resources and the fact that the programs don’t even do what they are supposed to do make them even more angry
Second, many Americans want something to be done quickly and energetically about illegal immigration in general and about the porousness of our southern borders to Mexico’s troubles. (I don’t necessarily share this priority; I am just translating the obvious.)
Third, they want whoever speaks for our country to stop kissing the asses of terrorists states and of friends of terrorists, even inactive friends of terrorists.
What’s so hard to understand?
And, no, again, the problem is not that the President is an alleged “black man.” He is not, by the way, just the accidental byproduct of 70s haphazard hippie coupling. (I don’t knock it; I was doing it too.) Also, he does not understand America well because he spent his formative years abroad. I did too. I can identify with the man, perched on his tippy-toes on a small rock with the tide coming up fast.
And, by the way, my fellow conservatives and my fellow libertarians-leaners, President Obama is no monster. He is an obstinate man of average intelligence and of average education who is out of his depth. I know how he feels; I would too. The main difference is that I have pretty good taste in my choice of advisers and that often, I pay attention to what they have to say.
