So, you want to insure Obama wins in 2012? Run a teaparty “patriot“. “…What this means is two things: (1) the pressure on formerRead More
Case in point.
Did you know John McCain is one of the most vocal opponents to Barack Obama and his policies? Want to know what the real problem is with the far right?
“…But in the year since that evening of comity and collegiality, McCain has emerged as one of the leading critics of the new president. On foreign policy, his traditional area of expertise, and domestic affairs, where McCain has shown new passion, the 72-year-old Arizonan is making it plain that he has no plans to serve out his years in the rank-and-file, as a politician known more for what he lost than what he will yet accomplish.
For years, McCain relished being an outsider and a maverick, a style that often led to battles with his own party’s leadership. Today, for reasons that friends and McCain observers say could range from unresolved anger to concern for his right flank as he seeks re-election to genuine dismay about Obama’s agenda, he is helping lead a fiery crusade of GOP loyalists against Democratic priorities – and irked some of his Democratic colleagues in the process.
My grandfather Froehlich was a cattleman all of his life. He had the largest independent dairy in south Florida, milking several hundred cows on a 24 hour basis. Having spent all of his life around cows, he had a tendency to equate and philosophize about life via cows. He also had a rather cynical view of humanity, likening them to cows.
He would have a very dismal view of today’s “conservative base”, considering them nothing but cattle.
What happens when people who are NOT Republican acquire enough power to manipulate themselves into the position where they can call the shots?
Okay, they are smart. They are a heck of a lot smarter than “we are”. If we had half their cunning, duplicitous brains, we would know how to manipulate them and not the other way around.
Republicans who allow it are just downright pathetic. That’s what is going on in the GOP today. A minority group of conservatives have terrorized our more spineless Republican officials into thinking THEY ARE THE BASE, when nothing could be farther from the truth.
Why should people who have no relationship with a political party be the ones who call the shots?
They are abusive bullies who have come up with a formula to terrorize our elected officials. When good men like Lindsey stand up to them, well – you can see the results. They lie, denigrate, abuse, and manipulate.
Golly, they are good conservatives!
