Well here we are going into year 5 of the Obama oligarchy and I can’t help but be amazed at how liberals, who were once so principled in human rights, minority rights, fiscal restraint, advancement for the poor, and smart foreign policy have abandoned those positions possibly in light of their failures, but whom have also redirected their energies at demonizing any and all opposition, led by none other than their Leader.
It wasn’t long ago that their then future Leader was excoriating the current President for “taking out a credit card from China” and spending their grandchildren’s money for political expediency, and claiming that to be morally wrong and unpatriotic. Well that same Leader has now doubled the credit line on that credit card, wants even more credit, and claims it to be “investing” now in our future, with nary a peep from his loyal and devoted base. It wasn’t long ago that the Democrats who were in the minority claimed it to be their patriotic duty to oppose the majority and “fight” for what they believe in, claiming in to be the “heart of a democracy”. In fact their beloved pant suit politician once aggressively proclaimed:
It wasn’t long ago that 6% unemployment was considered too high, that 3% GDP growth was considered anemic and the beginning of a recession, and that “enhanced interrogations” were a violation of civil rights, but now we learn that they consider 8% unemployment to be an improvement, that 2% GDP growth is a sign of good things to come and that fatal drone strikes are the messy results of war.
In fact, we are learning quite a bit about our American leftists as this Obama oligarchy embarks upon its second term, none of which is very pleasant. One of our leftists here claimed that enhanced interrogations were a primary motivating factor to switch allegiance to a party that was more strident about protecting human rights, only to mildly disapprove of fatal drone strikes on 16 year old boys. We have also learned that other leftists who were once sticklers for the “rule of law” now have no problem with executive orders on issues like immigration that bypass Congress and create policy by fiat. We also learn that those same liberals who were against “wars of choice” and deposing world leaders, suddenly had a change of heart when those same actions were taken against Libya. And in respects to Libya, our liberals are curiously uninterested in learning the facts of the events that surround the death of our Ambassador. In fact when their favorite pant suit politician was asked about it, she claimed “what difference does it make”, and proceeded to enter into retirement amid fanfare of glowing accolades.
I am sure I missed quite a bit, so I welcome all of my conservative colleagues to chime in on how duplicitous, hypocritical, demagogic and shameless our liberals, and their ruling elite, have become.
