We Blew It

Truer Words Were Never Spoken. The GOP destroyed itself in about 12 short years. It took the Dems decades to accomplish as much, proving that Republicans are that much more efficient!

Let us bend over and kiss our ass goodbye. Our 28-year conservative opportunity to fix the moral and practical boundaries of government is gone--gone with the bear market and the Bear Stearns and the bear that's headed off to do you-know-what in the woods on our philosophy.

An entire generation has been born, grown up, and had families of its own since Ronald Reagan was elected. And where is the world we promised these children of the Conservative Age? Where is this land of freedom and responsibility, knowledge, opportunity, accomplishment, honor, truth, trust, and one boring hour each week spent in itchy clothes at church, synagogue, or mosque? It lies in ruins at our feet, as well it might, since we ourselves kicked the shining city upon a hill into dust and rubble. The progeny of the Reagan Revolution will live instead in the universe that revolves around Hyde Park.

Mind you, they won't live in Hyde Park. Those leafy precincts will be reserved for the micromanagers and macro-apparatchiks of liberalism--for Secretary of the Department of Peace Bill Ayers and Secretary of the Department of Fairness Bernardine Dohrn. The formerly independent citizens of our previously self-governed nation will live, as I said, around Hyde Park. They will make what homes they can in the physical, ethical, and intellectual slums of the South Side of Chicago.

The South Side of Chicago is what everyplace in America will be once the Democratic administration and filibuster-resistant Democratic Congress have tackled global warming, sustainability, green alternatives to coal

and oil, subprime mortgage foreclosures, consumer protection, business oversight, financial regulation, health care reform, taxes on the "rich," and urban sprawl. The Democrats will have plenty of time to do all this because conservatism, if it is ever reborn, will not come again in the lifetime of anyone old enough to be rounded up by ACORN and shipped to the polling booths.

NOW GOVERN - New York Post

Well, he did it. And god help this country. I just hope I'm wrong.

Well, now the Democratic Party is for all practical purposes America's super-majority party. It has complete control of the presidency and Congress. It's time to put away childish things and govern.

If Democrats govern from the center, good for the country. If they govern from their instincts, good for the Republicans.

Just yesterday, Sen. Chuck Schumer said the arguably dumbest thing uttered by a New York politician since Gov. George Pataki claimed his hate-crimes bill would have prevented the Holocaust. Schumer explained that objecting to imposition of the "Fairness Doctrine" - which would silence conservative talk radio - was no different than objecting to keeping hard core porn off broadcast TV.

The same day, a video surfaced in which Democratic Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia ridiculed "the simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitled to keep it."

Then of course there were the recent revelations that Obama hopes to bankrupt the coal industry and send electricity rates through the roof. He's still on record promising that his first act as president would be to sign a law guaranteeing federally funded abortion on demand.

If that Barack Obama becomes president, if he becomes a rubber stamp for the party of Schumer and Moran (never mind Reid and Pelosi), then the Democrats will walk en masse into the rear rotor blade of a helicopter called the 2010 elections.
