It is truly amazing. It is like a return to the 1970s. You may remember that awful, forgettable decade. It was the age of Watergate. The age of disco. YUCK! The age of the Soviet Union on an unchallenged march to total world domination. And of course, who can forget our wonderful presidents during that era. Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. A rouge's gallery if there ever was one.
Now, I think that we are more and more getting a taste of where a Sen. Barack presidency will go. Back to the 70s.
Here is a gem from the man who wants to be our president:
"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,"
Do you not get it? It is OUR fault that there are problems in the world. If we would just not drive those eeeevviiiilllllll SUVs, and not eat as much and have instead of globaloney warming, ones own home warming. To save the planet, you know.
This comment from Sen. Barack was in, where else, Portland, Oregon. And, with the photo on the Drudge Report http://drudgereport.com, you would think it was some new Woodstock or some summer concert. But, no, it was an orgy of self-loathing that is going to be the Democrat campaign.
What I would like to know is what kind of American leader is successful by bashing his or her own nation? Not talking about the greatness of this Great Land? And what we can do, not what we can not do?
It is very disturbing that the Democrat party is taking such a decidedly left turn. Maybe the thinking among the activist Democrats is that President Bush has been so bad, that the American people are ready for a good case of self-loathing and that the United States is a bully and should just insulate itself and socialize vast parts of the American economy, all in the name of making sure every American, or non-American, has government health care. And that we are doing all the heavy lifting in trying to stop something that does not exist, globaloney warming?
We are not doing such a great job at the GOP with our guy, Sen. John "F--- You" McCain. But, if he is looking for unsolicited advice, here it is.
Share a vision for the United States. Talk about that Shinning City On The Hill as your mentor, so you say, Ronald Reagan, talked about. Now, there is nothing wrong with admitting that mistakes have been made, and yes, especially in regards to the Iraq theatre in the War Against Islamofacsist Terror. But, tell the American people that we will not back down and that with you as president, you will make the adjustments when necessary. But do not talk down about this Great Land and People. Talk like a real great Democrat, President John F. Kennedy, about the boundlessness of America. What we CAN do.
That is what is troubling about the Sen. Barack candidacy. It is just telling us how terrible we are and that we need his messianic leadership. No, we need to hear from you that this nation is a great one and what you will do to make it better. But, that would require you to keep most of your allies quiet, starting with Mrs Obama, Michelle. I do not know how you cover that one Sen. Barack.
