I was listening to the “titular head’ of the Republican Party today (self-proclaimed), and I must say I was tremendously disappointed in his take on all the Obama scandals. What I heard was (I’m paraphrasing, but it is close to the actual language):
“Don’t even try to push impeachment because nobody wants to impeach the first black President. Instead, tell everyone these scandals prove that liberalism is the problem and we need to replace Democrats with Republicans.”
OK, so here’s what I took from this:
1 – The Republican Party does not care about the rule of law (if it did, it were pursue those who break the law – period).
2 – The Republican Party is racist (if it weren’t, it would pursue the law no matter what color the skin of the person breaking it).
3 – Liberalism = Democrat Party.
4 – Democrat Party = Big Govt.
5 – The Republican Party is the “cure.”
Now, all of this may have worked – had I no memory. But I have a memory and I seem to remember that, before Obama, when we gave the White House, House AND Senate to the Republican Party, they took us on what was – up to that time – the largest spending spree and increase in govt. in U.S. history.
So, here’s my question:
When are those who consider themselves “conservative” going to wake up and realize that they are being played for fools when they allow themselves to be convinced that the Republican Party is any different than the Democrats? And when will they learn that – whether consciously or not – the “talking heads” serve only to keep you on that Republican reservation?
GO ROGUE, GO TEA PARTY!
