The ‘Rape the Rich, Kill the Baby, No to God, No to Jerusalem, Class Envy, War on Prosperity, Hate-fest’ Democratic Convention ends. Mercifully.
And not with a bang, but with a whimper.
And how fitting that the storm they feared so much that they moved the Obama speech from a 75,000 seat stadium to a 20,000 seat Arena never materialized. In spite of the fair weather, an imaginary storm was blamed. That pretty much sums up the last 4 years of the Obama Presidency. Blame the boogieman.
What was supposed to be Barack Obama’s “speech to end all speeches” was, according to the Washington Post, a speech that left America depressed.
In 2008, Barack Obama rode into Denver to accept the Democratic Party’s nomination on a shiny new Unicorn with resplendent robes and complete with Greek Columns and a lot of smoke and fanfare. And last night, it became apparent that, like the Greek Columns of 4 years ago, the Unicorn’s horn was also a Styrofoam fake and all that was left for Obama to ride out of Charlotte was all that was really there 4 years ago: a broken down donkey ready for the scrapheap of failed politics.
Obama mailed in this speech. Gone was the soaring rhetoric, the lofty promises and idealistic, grandiose righteousness of 2008. The wind at his back has become a stiff headwind, not because of circumstances beyond his control. Rather, winds brought on by his policies that pander to the partisan currents that have overtaken the Democratic Party.
What Obama finds after 4 years of pitting the haves against the have-nots, men against women, pro-life against baby killers, whites against blacks, Atheists against the Religious, gays against straights and left against right is a Democratic Party that is nothing but a dysfunctional amalgamation of radical fringe elements that are all demanding he bow to their special causes.
The Democratic Party reached critical mass in 2008 and has since begun the process of collapsing in on itself not unlike a black hole. Even light cannot escape it’s murkiness because there is no longer any light within the Democratic Party.
To counter the “star power” of Clint Eastwood at the Republican Convention, the left wing radical party trotted out empty head after empty head all suffering from a complete lack of political experience and deeply under the influence of Botox-Brain Syndrome and silicone infused dementia.
And that was just the men.
(And at least Eastwood was a Mayor at one time.)
And the Vaginal Velociraptor Vixens like Sandra Fluke who somehow seem to believe that killing babies and making sure someone else pays for you to have sex is the most important thing facing the nation today.
And Republicans want to kill all the women and enslave them. Never mind the fact that half of the Republicans are women and many of the men are married and have daughters they really love, not to mention the fact that they all have or had mothers. There is simply no logic to thinking Republicans don’t care about women.
But logic and Democrats never did get along.
And they still blame George W. Bush. They all warn about going back to the “failed” Bush years. But the fact is, at least 6 years of Bush’s two terms were pretty darn good. It was only the last couple – which incidentally coincide with the Democrats taking over the House and Senate – that were not so good.
And not once did I hear mention of the fact that for the first two years Obama owned all 3 Houses – the House, Senate and the White House. It has only been since 2011 – last year – that the people decided Obama, Pelosi and Reid had done enough damage and they wanted the Republicans to stop them from more wild spending – that Obama had to actually show some leadership.
And his inability to get things done since the Republicans took over the House is less an indictment on Republicans and more a classic demonstration of inept leadership by Barack Obama.
By the way, thanks for pulling out Bubba Clinton to remind us of how Democrats used to be back in the day when a President was able to work with the other party and still get things done. Clinton was somehow able to brush aside his own narcissism and megalomania for the good of the Country, a feat Barack Obama will never be able to do.
Marxism and Socialism, the building blocks of the Progressive Movement have failed everywhere they have been tried. Europe is in a meltdown and following their failed ideas is not going to work. Many of us knew that in 2008. All of us know that now, but there remain a few that still see Obama as some sort of savior, even after the epic failure of the last 4 years.
President Obama takes great pride in his golf game, basketball, doodling and vocal prowess. He takes no pride in America and wants to remake it into a lesser nation where everyone (except him and his) are brought down to the lowest common denominator in the name of “fairness”.
There is absolutely nothing fair about taking the hard work of others and redistributing their wealth to those who could work, but won’t.
The Democratic Nation Convention should be enough to convince everyone that it is time to retire Barack Obama and leave him to practice his golf and singing skills on his own time.
America needs a real, full-time President.
