It’s amazing what can happen when arrogance and desperation conjoin.
“Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,” Obama told the assembled Democrats, who paid $15,200 a person to attend. “And the country is scared.”
Yo, B. Hussein:
When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.
Must be that backwoods mentallity:
“It’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
—B. Hussein Obama, April 2008
We’re just plain cantankerous:
“….we’re a divided country, we’re a country that is “just downright mean,” we are “guided by fear,” we’re a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. “We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day,”
—Michelle Obama, March 2008
“You’re the dullest audience I’ve ever spoken to,” (Joe) Biden chided 340 people paying more attention to their scrambled eggs and bacon than to him at an Oct. 7 fundraiser for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Barrett in Madison, Wisconsin.
And of course, no Biden speech is complete without the craptastic Blame Bush strategy:
“I am truly angry as I go around the country watching…people absolutely, fundamentally blown away by the greed and the policies of the last eight years, of the last administration.” (Biden had to quickly amend his reference to the “last eight years,” of course, because his party has been in control for a significant portion of that time.)
The Dems can’t help it; there’s a crapweasel gene in their DNA. The question is, whether the most die-hard, slobbering, Obama-infatuated fools are ready to finally admit their 2008 fuck-up, and at least make amends on 2 November.
