But didn’t Democrat Obama inherit “the mess” from Republican Bush and haven’t congressional Republicans obstructed Obama’s recovery agenda?
This is how a Democratic Party, with no Gene McCarthy (pictured), feels compelled to frame re-election issues given a failed incumbent with no record of popular achievements to run on. At least LBJ declined to run and Ted Kennedy challenged Carter in 1980, but I digress.
It is apparent that the main message of this week’s Democratic National Convention from David Axelrod to Bill Clinton, and President Barack Obama himself, will not be to ask Americans if they are better off than they were four years ago. Too few can answer that Reaganesque inquiry in the affirmative. Instead, President Obama will insist that he inherited a crisis solely of the Republicans’ making, single-handedly prevented a second Great Depression, was prevented from implementing Democratic policies that would foster a robust recovery by the Republicans; and that Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and Republicans generally are rich, racists, sexists, bigots and homophobes that don’t care about Medicare, the elderly, the disabled and the poor.
God got the last laugh over Sarah and Abraham’s firstborn. Republicans will get the last laugh in Tampa.
Before the formation of the patriarchal tropical storm supposedly headed for bays near Tampa, the broadcast network television branch of the Democratic Party made Ann Romney the latest victim of their real war on women. Her speech, originally scheduled for the first night of the Republican National Convention there on Monday, would not be covered due to reduced network coverage of both major party conventions.
No problem. The wife of the man to be nominated to take on President Barack Obama on Election Day will speak tonight. ABC, NBC and CBS collectively laughed and discovered the next possible Katrina II and employed him, despite his Jewish name meaning “laughter”, as the latest device to divert attention from the empty spaces in voters’ wallets and any possible connection to the liberal economic policies of their fellow liberal Democrats.
The first Isaac-related line of defense against the appearance of modern Republican women bemoaning their non-free contraception suffering under Obama was the threat that Ishmael’s younger brother would hit Tampa Bay. When, “all of a sudden”, TS Isaac “changed” course and headed for the Crescent City (seriously, do political appointees populate those that issue press releases for NOAA?, but I digress), Plan B (sex-change) Isaac-as-Katrina kicked in.
Sounds about right which makes Mitt the GOP’s best nominee since Reagan and toughest on Democrats ever
This former Democrat has lived to drive a stake through the place a heart would normally be of the life, liberty, pursuit of happiness and blood-sucking vampire that is my former party since my Summer of 2001 conservative epiphany. I know how rotten is the smell of the un-dead inside precinct and county party meetings after dusk. To be a Democrat is to lie in a never-ending appeal to class and race envy. Hence my aversion to the John McCains of the GOP who show that they love the U.S. Senate more than the U.S.A. when they refer to their Democrat colleagues as “honorable” after they launch BushLied Eras while troops are in harm’s way.
So it is with extreme tea partier/Rush is Right-dittohead ecstasy that I have witnessed Mitt Romney take the advice of El Rushbo in:
Finally, a Republican presidential nominee unafraid to call out the Democrats on moral grounds, rather than merely “disagreeing” with a so-called “honorable” opponent. It is not dirty in politics to tell the truth about one’s opponent, even if the truth is harsh, and the hard truth is that the Democrats are not an honorable party and haven’t been for decades. They are more like a mob in organized crime seeking to satisfy disparate parochial interests using taxpayer money for favors than a political party committed to principles that would promote the general welfare.
National Democrats stand for nothing save their own power. When it suited their hold on power to keep blacks in chains, they did so. When it suited their electoral prospects to favor Jim Crow, they did so. When it suited their hold on Congress to kick the black man out of the house and make Uncle Sam daddy, they did so. They favored the Viet Cong, Reds in Russia and now the Muslim Brotherhood.
They oppose affording the armed forces of the United States a few extra days to vote, but sue to allow felons the franchise. Motor Voter and amnesty for illegal yutes? What else but a scheme to sneak them into the voting booth in swing states. They oppose photo IDs for voting lest the dead miss out on casting votes for Jack Asses in Chicago and elsewhere, even if doing so requires that they slander Blacks as too stupid to accept a free such ID from the government.
Thank you Mitt Romney for calling them out. Keep up the good work.

Not. Why not just increase student loans, keep tuition high, blame Republicans for not caring about the poor and middle class priced out of an education because they won’t increase student loans even more, and keep the high salaries for the Democrats in academia?
File the above with other headlines you never see, such as:
- Labor unions voluntarily reduce pay to save company
- Government employees voluntarily increase their contributions to pension fund to prevent tax increase
- Teachers voluntarily agree to end tenure and adopt merit pay plan
- Democrats agree to cut non-defense spending
Democrats constantly demonize “Big Oil”, “Big Pharmaceutical” and Big Business in general and tilt at other faux man-made global warming aka “climate change” windmills such as Republicans as racist, bigot, homophobes that want widows and orphans to starve in the streets rather than prove they “care” by supporting the latest Democrat-sponsored bill. And we fully expect September or October surprises that would “bail out” Sallie Mae and debt-burdened students much like Dodd-Frank bailed out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and let them continue their business and serve as employment agency for rejected and retiring Democrat pols.
Could we please, finally, hold democrats accountable for the failure of their policies?
How many more cities and states run by Democrats for decades have to reach the Detroit stage of a return of city limits territory to pasture status before voters will quote Sheriff Andy Griffith’s deputy Barney Fife and say fool me for decades, shame on me; and join the tea partier reversal that began with the 2010 election landslide for conservatives?
Sen. Paul (R-KY) introduces needed bill to limit use of unmanned military planes by domestic law enforcement
The constitutionally informed should have no problem when the Commander-in-Chief commands those for whom he is chief to kill Bin Ladens in Pakistan with Navy Seals on the ground or even American citizen al-Harethis levying war against their own country in Yemen with un-manned drone aircraft. The President has broad, inherent chief executive power to repel the enemies of America, no matter where located, and even in the absence of specific congressional authorization much less a formal declaration of war against a specific nation. In the case of the War on Terror, both the current and former presidents that have served since September 11, 2001 have had the added benefit of the Authorization for the Use of Military Force bill passed by a bi-partisan House and Senate.
The Democratic Party ‘sector’ is doing fine…for Republicans
The only split in the patronage party is over who runs it, not their shared failed policy goals
Question: Does Bill Clinton help Republican chances more when he praises Romney’s “sterling” record at Bain Capital and argues for extending the Bush tax cuts for just one more year or when he backtracks after trips to the Michelle/AxlerodChicago Way woodshed?
Given the elected Democrats turned Bain defenders, including former President Clinton, together with his additional jabs at Obama’s spending, debt and a double dip recession-in-the-making, Republicans are invited to believe there is a split in the party of FDR and the New Deal coalition? Why, because the last president re-elected as a Democrat bears a grudge against an “amateur” that beat his wife in 2008? Because given the LBJ Medicare/Obama Obamacare, yet failed presidencies, paradigm, by all rights Barack should have declined the 2012 nomination and cleared the way for Hillary?
Well, yes, there are splits in other mob families as well, but the goals of the respective syndicates remain the same. Hence, my continual frustration with some conservatives that imagine a Hillary Rodham or a Bill (post-repeal of the Twenty-Second Amendment) Clinton could return America to the booming late 1990s.
Finally, a Republican has the guts to make a moral case against Democratic Party economic policies
Significantly on the day before President Barack Obama made the defining statement of his presidency that the ”private sector is doing fine”, Mitt Romney became the first GOP presidential nominee in memory to eschew the usual, non-judgmental, Republican line against the economic policies of our “honorable friends on the other side of the aisle” as merely being “wrong” about how to foster economic growth:
They concluded that we would all forget how long the recovery took once it had happened. So they decided to go ahead. The idea that they knowingly slowed down our recovery in order to put in place Obamacare, which they wanted and they considered historic, but the American people did not want or consider historic, is something which I think deserves a lot of explaining. Because I think the president’s responsibility is to put people back to work and to get people out of poverty and to help people have good jobs and have prospects for a brighter tomorrow.
David Horowitz, former radical leftist and author of “How to Beat Democrats” and yours truly have been calling for the day when Republicans other than newly elected tea partiers would get over their fear of the Main Stream/Drive-By/Obama media and acknowledge the obvious import of the fact that, continually, over the past 40+ years, the Democratic Party has advocated and enacted economic policies that have always failed to foster economic growth. Yes, many Democrats are young and/or ignorant and truly believe that the policies advocated by George McGovern, Tip O’Neil, Hillary’s Bill Clinton before Newt got custody, Nancy Pelosi and Barack Hussein Obama are best for the poor, middle class and the economy as a whole.
But the truth is that the leaders of the party of Jefferson and Jackson long ago divorced themselves from the conventional economic goals of most Jeffersonians and Jacksonians. Yes, they want the private sector to produce enough wealth for them to spread around to fund well-paid government bureaucrats to regulate business and dependent victims at a “Life of Julia” subsistence level so they can declare the private sector as “fine”; but they too often forget that for wealth to continue to be created, those that create the wealth and the jobs that come with it must have the incentive to take risks to start and expand businesses.
