Ripping some prior quotes and a little commentary by Malkin, let's talk about Mr. "I Won" Obama's new priority of reaching out to the newcomers.
“I probably should have used the word ‘opponents’ instead of ‘enemies’ to describe political adversaries,” Obama admitted Monday. Yeah, PROBABLY.
“We don’t mind the Republicans joining us,” Obama taunted a few weeks ago. “They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.” The unifier.
“They’re counting on young people staying home and union members staying home and black folks staying home,” the fear-mongering agent of hope and change jeered on the campaign trail last month.
“You would think they’d be saying thank you,” he sneered last April, when millions turned out for the nationwide Tax Day tea party protests. THANK YOU, sir, for waking up the sleeping giant.
“I want them just to get out of the way” and “don’t do a lot of talking,” he scoffed in response to prescient critics of the federal trillion-dollar stimulus boondoggle. Well we just talked at the ballot box. It just isn't what you wanted to hear.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer called vocal citizens who protested the federal health care takeover bill during the town hall revolts of 2009 “un-American,” too. Remember? “These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American,” Pelosi and Hoyer blasted in an op-ed piece for USA Today last summer. “Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades.” Funny, I seem to remember SEIU thugs trying to drown out the Town Hall protestors.
Rep. Alan Grayson of Florida, whom the president hailed as an “outstanding” member of Congress, accused Republicans of wanting elderly people to “die quickly” and of presiding over a “holocaust in America.” But "death panels" was hate speech, right?
In California, entrenched incumbent jerk Pete Stark derided immigration enforcement activists at a town hall by asking: “Who are you going to kill today?” To an elderly constituent who opposed the health care bill, Stark retorted: “I wouldn’t dignify you by peeing on your leg. It wouldn’t be worth wasting the urine.” Holy hell. Could you imagine if Palin dared say something like that to a Democrat??
Remind your representatives as many times as you can that they were elected to be the party of HELL NO. They must endure the jeers of "obstructionists" (I Won, remember?) and suck it up. They had better do their damndest to UNDO the destruction done and DO the good they are supposed to at least try to do. Because they can be out just as well as in. And we have not yet begun to fight.
And let's not forget Leftist Darling faux "Economist" Paul Krugman's wet dream - " …announce a fairly high inflation target over an extended period, and commit to meeting that target. What am I talking about? Something like a commitment to achieve 5 percent annual inflation over the next 5 years — or, perhaps better, to hit a price level 28 percent higher at the end of 2015 than the level today. (Compounding) Crucially, this target would have to be non-contingent — not something you'll call off if the economy recovers." Yes, Paul, raising the inflation rate to 28%. The guy's a walking billboard for a brand new Misery Index.
