Post of the Day: Dems as One Trick Pony
And don't give me the crap about "new kind of politics", "hope" blah, blah, blah. Barack can claim it as often as he likes--but this isn't "new politics". It it Old School Democrat politics. Sleazy. Corrupt. Links to the Mob. Links to Marxist front groups. Overflowing with people who see all law as abstract for which they can apply their "mature" interpretation--no matter what the law actually says. Here is their mature interpretation of the US Constitution: "it means whatever we say it means, because we are the enlightened elite and you are little more than scum...". Whose campaigns are run by Unionists, Former Communist rabble-rousers. ACORN members committing voter fraud in the tens of thousadns.
These Democrats are angry people. Perpetually. Is it possible that this anger comes from an underlying, unconscious place in the Democrat psyche that knows it is fatally flawed--that ultimately their making excuse after excuse for their beliefs leads to the exhaustion of all excuses. And then, there it is. The naked truth: their philosophy is intellectually and morally bankrupt, and ultimately they know they must resort to force (economic or otherwise) to keep its citizens from rebellion.
Unlike the former Democratic Party this bunch does not believe in the concept of American Exceptionalism--nor does it care. This is about their power, not our power. Democrats no longer believe it is ever justified in using America's Military Strength to ensure a safer world, and to protecting America's vital interests. World War II would have never been fought by this bunch. Hell Obama would probably have flown to Berlin or Tokyo to kiss Hitler or Tojo's ass.
The Democrat Party has become the Party of racing one another to see who can surrender fastest from a war we have all but won... Why? Because a stable Iraq will promote a more stable Mideast, and it will introduce a counterbalance to Iran and Hezbollah's domination of the reason. It will be able to directly protect all of the world's energy supply.
And it will mean that Bush was right.
Democrats no longer believe in promoting or pursuing American greatness. They are the party of achieving the least common denominator and being happy with mediocrity. And from all appearances inside the Beltway they are succeeding.
Obama? Obama speaks out for talking immediately to monsters and lending them instant legitimacy. Watch the tape. "NO PRECONDITIONS". You Tube that into your pipe and smoke it.
Obama buys it: he thinks that his personality, smile and good intentions will suddenly cause these enemies to change their minds about: their lust for naked power, control of the world's oil supply, religious repression, suicide bombings, decapitations, and terror to spread a 9th centry relition. This is where we are heading. And the Dems seem bound and determined to help get there ASAP.
Meanwhile, their candidate wants to talk to the men primarily responsible for the deaths of most of the sons and daughters of American taxpayers, like they are our good buddies. And then he has the gall to suggest today that John McCain is not committed to the American military. This guy is not merely a politician. He is sick... Cue Mr. Surber:
Democratic Sen. Barack Obama questions Republican Sen. John McCain’s commitment to the troops. CQ Politics has the video. McCain has the son in Iraq.
UPDATE: Linked by Glenn Reynolds. Thanks.
One further thought about military service. In 1988, Democrats denounced Dan Quayle for serving in the National Guard.
In 1992 and 1996, Democrats praised Bill Clinton for not serving.
In 2000, Democrats praised Al Gore for his Vietnam service while, again, ridiculing the National Guard, which Geeorge Bush served in.
In 2004, Democrats praised John Kerry for his Silver Star in Vietnam.
In 2008, Democrats mock John McCain for his 5 1/2 years in a North Vietnamese prison. Jay Rockefeller said (and apologized for) McCain lacks compassion for people because he was a jet pilot. Tell that to Bridget McCain. Tom Harkin called McCain too militaristic.
I wish they’d make up their minds. Is military service good or bad? Is combat service better or less? Is a man with a 100% medical disability from the military a good thing or bad?
