Should conservatives save themselves a lot of heartache and throw in the towel now? Republicans seem unable to get their message out without looking like villains (see: Do Republicans Want to be America’s Enemies?). With so many prime targets and renewed support from women a possibility thanks to Hilary Rosen, did House GOP members have to select a program to fund the newest bailout that could be used to throw women’s health in their faces?
Instigators using the shooting of Trayvon Martin as another excuse to run amok for the media act as if they are borrowing from the same playbook used by angry Muslims in Afghanistan. Just as rioting Muslims responded to the unintentional Koran burning by making their outrage the issue, we are hearing cries for justice that are as gross a violation as whatever happened in Sanford, Florida.
When the president’s cronies talk about planning for the 21st century we should assume they are up to no good. Arne Duncan is still hard at work helping the president level the playing field while trying to free up money to appease teachers’ unions.
Democratic pandering to ethnicity is offensive. Reverse racism is very much in vogue with Democrats and Obama administration officials who have gone all out to court the Latino vote. In a recent trip to Texas, Education Secretary Arne Duncan recited a favorite White House slogan that reeks of ethnic favoritism (see: Are High Unemployment and Ethnic Favoritism a Good Mix?
Democrats have been soiling themselves over Citizens United ever since the January 2010 decision opened corporate America’s coffers to election spending. Pushing for the failed Disclose Act to nullify the decision, the president claimed Citizens United would ruin our system of government:
A vote to oppose these reforms is nothing less than a vote to allow corporate and special interest takeovers of our elections.
Like common panhandlers, Democrats have been begging to finance their habits. Granted, the Obama class war is more coercive than what you would expect from your typical urban beggar, but the idea is the same. Out of money and options, Democrats have been hitting up the wealthy for spending money since January 2009.
In the battle over whether government should direct the private sector or let the free market perform unmolested, Harry Reid continues to accuse Republicans of blocking his party’s job creation efforts. Reid gives credit to Democrats for doing their best:
… Democrats have brought to the Senate floor bill after bill aimed at helping American businesses innovate, grow and hire.
