When we need a government we can trust more than ever, why is Washington still sounding the cry for more jobs? Things have improved since the recession ravaged the job market. Jobs are coming back. What isn’t coming back is something we lost during the recession that has nothing to do with the economy. Under Obama America began to lose its identity and if there was any trust left in government, that trust is gone.
Who was the biggest winner in Washington for 2014? There is only once choice. The winner is Barack Hussein Obama. No one else even came close. Our president hit home run after home run. Obama went his own way. When he wanted to do something he ignored what our Constitution, our laws, Congress, and even the people demanded.
There is no better time to give up that dead end career wearing a paper hat and stuffing French fries in bags. Finally, criminals are going to be rewarded for making a worthwhile life choice. They won’t have to worry about the will of the people being heard in Washington and getting in the way of causing pain, property loss, suffering, and death.
We just witnessed a pivotal moment of revenge in our democracy, a mass withdrawal of the consent of the governed. Don’t confuse Tuesday’s rout with what happened in 2010. This wasn’t about lapping up a conservative agenda. There was no Pledge to America this time. In fact, the only real agenda was the one pushed by the losers and rejected by voters.
We like to think that the GOP and conservatives are one, but there is a lot of ground between some of the Republican hypocrites calling the shots and the conservative voters they rely on. Eric Cantor just found out what happens when you step over the line. Was the majority leader a hypocrite? That was an issue for Virginia to decide.
When you heard about John Boehner’s poorly considered denunciation of House Republicans over immigration reform, did you wonder how the speaker went from a tea party-backed victory to coming out in favor of something many Republicans hate the very idea of?
Boehner has a bad habit of waffling on the issues (see: Boehner’s Doublespeak Proves We Have No Conservative Party).
The only political issues Republicans should be concerned about this year have to do with bad government in all its guises (see: Bad Government, Bad Deals, and Failed Bills). Why are conservative politicians making headlines this week with two losing issues they should have the good sense to leave alone?
Topping the list of damaging political issues for Republicans:
Of all the political issues Republicans have to navigate before midterms, immigration is the one to avoid.
Listening to the four Republican candidates for governor of Illinois one can’t help but feel sad. They seem earnest. They are saying what we expect Republican candidates to say. They sound hopeful for Illinois’ future. They are, in all likelihood, on a fool’s errand. They have nothing to sell, or at least nothing enough voters will buy to put them in office.
