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.
