Just Like A Kennedy

"If the left was merely irritated at the start of the last eight years, only W's puppet master, Vice President Dick Cheney, has done more to incite that anger -- or rather, to grind it, hone it, to plunge it headlong into a blazing kiln, to blast it through a Large Hadron Collider and create world-imploding black holes of fury,...why won't Barack Obama channel the outrage surging through his constituency and explode in fire-and-brimstone oratory?"

-- James Hannaham, blaming the Republicans for the Democrats's "feelings", while forgetting he and the Left and Barack Obama were always selling us the premise they were supposed to be adults in control of themselves, on (what else?) the ever-more viciously childish

Go on, Folks: have your tantrum. Betray everything you said you stood for. You know you want to, because you never stood for anything anyway. It was all "just words" as Obama once mocked. A charade, a cover, a lie. A blatant NewAge grab for power with nothing else behind it but the evil of your blatantly cynical "feelings". If it wasn't then you wouldn't even consider going there. But there you are, stoking the fires of rage and hatred in a public forum - again. So much for your offer of a better world. So much for change. So much for hope. So much for you. Your true message is clear:

You're a party with no ideas - and with the perfect candidate to prove it.

  1. Former publisher of National Review, Wick Allison, endorses Obama. Why? Because no conservative can support the current GOP:

    Today it is so-called conservatives who are cemented to political programs when they clearly don’t work. The Bush tax cuts—a solution for which there was no real problem and which he refused to end even when the nation went to war—led to huge deficit spending and a $3 trillion growth in the federal debt. Facing this, John McCain pumps his “conservative” credentials by proposing even bigger tax cuts. Meanwhile, a movement that once fought for limited government has presided over the greatest growth of government in our history. That is not conservatism; it is profligacy using conservatism as a mask.

    Today it is conservatives, not liberals, who talk with alarming bellicosity about making the world “safe for democracy.” It is John McCain who says America’s job is to “defeat evil,” a theological expansion of the nation’s mission that would make George Washington cough out his wooden teeth.

    This kind of conservatism, which is not conservative at all, has produced financial mismanagement, the waste of human lives, the loss of moral authority, and the wreckage of our economy that McCain now threatens to make worse.

    Read the whole thing. Jeffrey Hart, Bruce Bartlett and Douglas Kmiec are in the same boat. Real conservatives are appalled at the current Republican insanity.
