- Witch Hunt Season
When will the Dems learn to fight back?
The last time a Democrat sat in the
White House, he faced a nonstop witch hunt by his political opponents.
Prominent figures on the right (and
many idiot Democrats) accused the Clintons of everything from
drug smuggling to murder.
And once Republicans took control of Congress, they subjected the
Clinton administration to unrelenting harassment
— at one point taking 140 hours
of sworn testimony over accusations that the White House had misused
its Christmas card list.
Now it’s happening again — except that this time it’s even worse. Let’s
turn the floor over to Rush Limbaugh:
“Imam Hussein Obama,” he recently declared, is “probably the best
anti-American president we’ve ever had.”
To get a sense of how much it matters when people like Mr. Limbaugh
talk like this, bear in mind that he’s a mainstream
figure within the Republican Party; bear in mind, too, that unless
something changes the political dynamics, Republicans
will soon control at least one house of Congress. (I have money that says that's not true)
This is going to be very, very ugly.
So where is this rage coming from? Why is it flourishing? What will it
do to America?
Anyone who remembered the 1990s could have predicted something like the
current political craziness. What we learned
from the Clinton years is that a significant number of Americans just
don’t consider government by liberals — even very
moderate liberals — legitimate. Obama’s election would have
enraged those people even if he were white.
Of course, the fact that he isn’t, and has an alien-sounding name, adds
to the rage.
By the way, I’m not talking about the rage of the excluded and the
dispossessed: Tea Partiers are relatively affluent,
and nobody is angrier these days than the very, very rich. Wall Street
has turned on Mr. Obama with a vengeance:
last month Steve Schwarzman, the billionaire chairman of the Blackstone
Group, the private equity giant, compared
proposals to end tax loopholes for hedge fund managers with the Nazi
invasion of Poland.
Too bad the Democrats can't think
their way out of a wet toilet-paper bag.
All they have to say is "We want to return
the tax code to Reagan-era levels."
that simple - I could do it when I was eight years old.
What are the handjobs going to do, call Reagan a Nazi?
Why can't our side think?
Our side can't even count to three - we're that f-ing stupid.
Dear God, how did I get in a party of stupid and cowardly
