Liberals have been oblivious to the anger in America. One could say that their heads are lodged in the backsides of their anatomy. They laugh at some of the quack solutions coming from the Tea Party but don’t come up with any of their own. In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. That’s why the Tea Party has any traction at all.
There’s an old Marxist saw that’s spot on as far as liberals go: One step forward, two steps back, is the method of our attack.
Liberals displaced conservatives as custodians of the status quo. But the Center no longer holds. Again, I’ve never seen so much anger even in the divisions over the Vietnam War. The anger comes from distress over the economy. Globalization has strip-mined the USA of its manufacturing base. Liberals are just as culpable as the hated Republicans in this. Pat Buchanan accused his own Republican Party of committing economic treason in their support of ‘free trade.’ Where’s the prominent liberal spokesmen to say the same about the Democrats?
Instead, all the Democrats are offering is ‘belief’ in Obama. And they’re getting nasty towards those who don’t genuflect. The retrograde Right–which has NO program for restoring our industrial base without which there can be no recovery–is thus winning by default.
Liberalism is now rotting like Ted Kennedy’s corpse. Trumpeting Kennedy liberalism–especially with his chosen candidate in the White House–is now as fruitful as baying at the moon.
Ted Kennedy almost was defeated back in 1994. He was fortunate that Mitt Romney was his opponent. Romney–current GOP front runner for 2012–was exposed for having bought a factory in Indiana, shipping the jobs overseas, then scrapping the plant and bragging about his economic prowess before GOP audiences. Still the election was close.
THE MSM misread, deliberately, the reasons for Kennedy’s close call. They laid it on that Kennedy’s boozing and womanizing had caught up to him. No, that wasn’t it. Kennedy had crapped on too many people for too long. There finally came a point when he no longer had majority support on the issues in his own state.
The original political base of the Kennedy clan was heavily Irish South Boston. Yet Kennedy met near universal scorn in ‘Southie’ for his support of school busing. That ended neighborhood schools there. And the Boston School System never recovered. Kennedys, of course, sent their kids to private schools.
Kennedy’s avid support of scuttling the old immigration laws only came to haunt him towards the occasion of his own demise. But one more nail in the coffin. By the way, the old immigration laws gave an advantage to the Irish. Kennedy thus ignored an old political law: You don’t shit on your own base.
Ever since Chappaquiddick, Republicans and conservatives have had a field day going after Kennedy. BUT, they ignore the real damage he did. After all, Kennedy was a free trader AND so are they. Better to hang on trivia like bad driving and not being able to handle the booze.
The wreckage of Kennedy liberalism is now embodied in the Obama Regime. Maybe Obama will luck out and also have Mitt Romney as an opponent.It’ll be that and not Obama worship that will save the day for him.
The Tea Party in personalizing their opposition to Obama are paving the way for the likes of Romney.
As for Kennedy, when he expired, he shit on the floor of this world when he left.
