American Exceptionalism: GOP Playing Patriot While Screwing America

Two Years ago President Obama, in a primary debate, put down the other contestants by saying “their ideas were mere replays of late night discussions in the college dormitories of the 1960’s”. Well I was in those late night dorm discussions and it is to bad Obama wasn’t around then because he would recognize the latest incarnation of the conservative game of “playing patriot”. But then again a REAL Progressive, which Obama is not, would answer these sunshine patriots of the right with some counter rhetoric!

Why don’t these same big mouth Republicans believe in making a buck in America instead of shipping their investments and our jobs overseas. Frequently these singers of the  “Corporate Elitist Globalization Internationale“ even ship our jobs and their investments to the very enemies of America of the 1960’s!  They even ship our jobs to Vietnam while our dead soldiers decay in the ground below the land they invest in! What happened to all the dominoes?

Can Democrats Get In Touch With Their Inner Plebeian

Remember when Democrats were talking about letting the Bush tax cuts for the rich die out instead of repealing them immediately? Now they have morphed into such wimps that they may keep them for the rich for years or permanently! Then again it was in those same early months of the Obama administration that we had the National Pork Bill passed. Obama even said it was filled with pork but that it was created by Democrats before he took office! Great leadership Mr. President!

President Spock And The Science Of Losing

Let’s see now how can we Democrats go out of our way to loose! Well first we had Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi gaining the leadership of the Senate and House then pig headily letting the Republicans just roll over them! We could have refused to fund the war in Iraq but Nancy Pelosi would not have any of it!

We could have held the nation spell bound with endless TV newscasts of Congressional committees investigating:

  • Halliburton
  • George Bush and his failure to complete his National Guard service requirements.
  • Corporate selling of our technology to the enemies of America!
  • Corporations avoiding taxes by setting up off shore head quarters!
  • How we got into Iraq and endless gleeful days of news cycle coverage concerning the Iraqi War’s contribution to our economic mess.
  • Corporate off shoring of both white collar technical jobs and blue collar jobs.

Republicans Use “Slick” Strategy

When will Barrack Obama learn that Americans want POTENCY not intellectualism! The Republicans are actually stealing Democratic issues and making them their own. They are even calling the current BP Oil spill “Obama’s Katrina”! This is absurd yet they may get away with it because President Obama “doesn’t want to point the finger of blame”! Screw this reconciliation nonsense!

When will Obama learn that Republicans are stealing the anger of the Middle Class that should be directed against them and instead turning it against Democrats. Just to name a few example  issues:

Republican’s Definition Of “Freedom” And It’s Danger To the Middle Class

When I hear Republicans talk about “freedom” I need to take a Rolaids because my stomach turns acidic. Tim Palenty used this terminology at a recent meeting of the conservative group CPAC! Actually this is classic Republican rhetoric!  The “Freedom” that they so prize is not freedom for the American Middle Class!

In this era where corporations are defined as “persons” I find my personal freedom under further attack! Just this year we have the record recalls of Toyota cars for multiple reasons.  Also the diabetes drug “Avandia” has been labeled by many as the cause of heart problems! CBS News says that the company that makes Avandia, “Glaxo Smith Kline” knew about the danger for years!
