Tea Baggers Backlash

If a liberal progressivesenatorial candidate can be defeated in Massachusetts, eleven months after the Obama hope-and-change blitzkrieg, it is hard to believe that any liberal seat is safe anywhere.

Voters went for the hope-and-change Obama in part because he promised fiscal sobriety after the Bush $500 billion deficit. Instead, in utterly cynical fashion, Obama trumped that red ink four times over. In the process, he developed a terrible habit of promising favored constituencies like Unions a hundred billion here, a hundred billion there as if it were all paper money — rather than real borrowed currency that will have to be confiscated in the future from the beleaguered taxpayer.

It only makes it worse than the more the administration borrowed, printed, and spent, the higher unemployment rose and the lower economy plummeted. Voters are sick and tired of a terrible year of big spending and big deficits — especially the sight of Obama and his congressional allies almost daily talking breezily about spending what we do not have.

No politician gets a pass for deception and prevarication. Obama in his narcissism thought his rhetoric made him exempt from a “read my lips” or “I didn’t have sex with that woman” moment. It didn’t.

The problem was not just that Obama made promises that he broke, but that he made them so frequently and so vehemently — and so cavalierly broke them. That brazen campaign deception is problematic for a politician, but proves fatal for a self-appointed messiah.

Obama still blames George W. Bush ad nauseam. He did it in Massachusetts again — and on the eve of the election, no less. Blaming the past for the mistakes of the present gets old quickly.

Yet Obama still pontificates that angry deluded voters (Tea Baggers) will “suddenly” come to appreciate how he rammed health care down their otherwise ignorant throats: “The American people will suddenly learn that this bill does things they like and doesn’t do things that people have been trying to say it does. . . "

Obama the Progressive in chief received a wake up call but it was not answereded at the White House.  Liberal Fascism is very much alive at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. 

But Congress represents center right America, not the Marxist State that Obama dreams of creating in the United States of America. Every member of the House and a third of the Senate is up for re-election in November.  Believe me, the Tea Baggers have the attention of every one of them now.
