After President Obama’s congressional and Supreme Court victories this week, The Right is obviously frustrated. I can empathize with how they’re feeling…a little. I remember feeling despondent and defeated in 2005 with another four years of a W. Bush administration, along with a Republican majority in Congress, staring me right in the face. The day after Bush beat John Kerry in 2004 was one of the toughest political days of my life, and I felt more cynical about America that day than I had ever felt before. And that’s saying something because I’m a born cynic.
So I understand why conservatives are feeling out-of-sorts this week.
Wayne Allen Root is taking his depression to a whole different plane:
I think the Obama Crime Family meets with a key politician like Boehner or Justice Roberts and they offer both a carrot and stick. They threaten to expose something terrible like an affair, or corruption, or malfeasance, or immorality that would shock the nation, ruin their career, destroy their legacy, cost their marriage, destroy their relationship with their children and leave them unemployable by any respectable law firm or lobbyist. That’s what’s behind door number one.
Or if you see the light and vote Obama’s way, they get to continue playing national leader and hero, their legacy is untouched, their family loves them, and they retire someday to a $5 million per year lobbying job (like Dennis Hastert). That’s what’s behind door number two.
Which would you choose?
Trust me – those options are being offered every day by the Obama Crime Family to key political figures in Washington, D.C. Republicans are being blackmailed, intimidated, extorted and bribed. That explains Justice Roberts and the Supremes ruling against the American People again. That explains why conservatives keep winning elections, yet we keep gaining nothing and losing everything. It’s all been fixed.
The Obama Crime Family is in charge.
It’s funny how The Right considers Obama both a “crime boss” and a foreign policy weakling simultaneously.
Root provides no evidence, mind you, but who cares? He’s throwing a temper tantrum because America is changing.
I think if you go back and study history, those standing in the way of change held enough power to thwart that change from happening for a long period of time. Eventually, the change they tried to stop steamrolled them by younger generations.
Do you remember in the Christmas TV special, “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town,” the town’s mayor did everything in his power to prevent the kids from playing with toys? He was going to do whatever it took to stop that darn Mickey Rooney-voiced Santa from bringing happiness to those kids! Well, due to time constraints (and the lack of an effective way to settle the Santa-Burgermeister showdown), Mayor Burgermeister-Meisterburger simply died.
Change happened, and for the better.
The opponents of America’s promise to always be an enlightened and progressing society will always put-up a fight, but they become relics of the past and are forgotten.
