I could wile away the hours
Conferrin’ with the flowers
Sittin in the Oval Office on my Tush
And my head I’d be scratchin’
While my thoughts were busy hatchin’
If I only weren’t a Bush!
I’d unravel any riddle
For any individ’le
In trouble or in pain
With the thoughts you’d be thinkin’
You could be another Lincoln
If you only weren’t a Bush!
Oh, I could tell you ”Read my lips”
And tell you “Mission Accomplished” after all my trips
But my blood line is the rub, I’m related to The Shrub, I belong to a Country Club
I would not be just a nuffin’
My head all full of stuffin’
Conservatives against me wouldn’t push
I would dance and be merry
Life would be a ding-a-derry
If I only weren’t a Bush!
John McCain is a dick. He would have been only marginally better than Obama, and that is saying something, because Obama is the worst President since Jimmy Carter. But nevertheless, we have found a good use for him. He inadvertently tells us who the “Establishment Tools” are by those Republicans who endorse him.
Sarah Palin, Sen. “Traitor” Brown, Mitt Romney, and most recently Gov. Bob McDonnell. Who didn’t expect Brown to endorse him, if not his Democrat rival. And Mitt, we knew some pretty-boy from Massachussetts must be just playing a conservative on T.V. But Palin? And now, et tu Bobbay?
The Republican Establishment does this to us every damn time. When we have a viable conservative and a RINO or back-stabbing conservative lite in a primary–any primary–they always go for the latter over the former. That’s fine, I like to know who my enemies are ahead of time. Good luck earning my vote next time, Sarah, Mitt and Bob, unless you are running against somebody even worse. I’ll take a real conservative over a pretend or a part-time conservative any day.
Rush Glenn Beck is right. To the extent that Rush and William Bennett and Mark “The Great One” Levin chastised Glenn Beck for his CPAC speech, they are wrong, Glenn is right.
I get the dissenters’ point, there is a difference between Democrats and Democrat Lites Republicans. And we ought to applaud Democrat Lites Republicans on those rare occasions when they appear to have grown a pair of actual working gonads. Yes, they have been standing firm as one group, the last line of defense between the status quo and insanity. But it has only been since the elections which ushered in Obama and the Democrat majorities in the House and Senate.
I, like Glenn, do not believe that the Democrat Lites Republicans suddenly got religion and became changed legislators. They have merely shifted tactics for awhile. I don’t think that the majority of them have learned a damn thing. They are doing their damnest to do whatever it takes to get back into power, and then they will resume screwing the American public.
So, yeah, I guess we should give them kudos for standing up to the Democrats on those rare occasions. But for crying out loud, don’t trust the bastards. Heck, it doesn’t take political courage to stand up to ObamaCare right now, it takes courage to support it in the face of mass opposition by the voters. The Democrat legislators are the ones with the convictions, and the Republicans are the (generally–not talking about some of you, and you know who you are) spineless opportunists. This is America, land of the free and home of the brave! We deserve better than spineless (and gonadless opportunists who will stab us in the back the first chance that they get. Never forget that.
When President Obama uses the word “bipartisanship” what he really means is for Republicans to sit down, shut up and wait while the Democrats write the bill, and then for Republicans to vote to enact the bill. He uses it like a club to try to shame a few idiot Republicans such as Susan Collins or Olympia Snowe or Scott Brown to vote for the bill.
I found an excellant article via Real Clear Politics written by Scott Hennessy which compares and contrasts how George W. Bush successfully enacted legislation with bipartisan support with how Obama, Pelosi and Reid failing to do so now. Mr. Hennessy worked for President Bush for six plus years and knows what he is talking about. I’m quoting extensively from his article, not so readers don’t have to read his article, but to entice them to go read the entire article. If I just cited the title, “What can President Obama learn from President Bush’s bipartisan success?” you might think “boring” and not go read it. Excellant article. Here are some of his points: Continue reading
