My Hope Doesn’t Allow Me To Swallow Obama The Way the Media Has…

March 16, 2009

There is just too much on the plate here to swallow.

As Andrew Malcolm wrote in the L.A. Times today:

Listen for more such positive tweaks in coming days. It’s bad. But we’re strong. If we can go to the moon, we can automate all medical records and cover everyone with health insurance and reform the country’s education system and stop foreclosures and expand the war in Afghanistan and create a federal deficit with more zeroes than most civilian calculators contain and then cut the deficit in half by giving 95% of Americans tax cuts and sticking it to a few rich people. And the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

That and, perhaps, China calling in all its loans at once.

Oh, and cure cancer, solve global warming (if it is the disaster Al Gore claims) and rid ourselves of oil, gas and coal.

Frankly, my dear, I do give a damn.

And I give a damn about working on jobs, banks and the economy first: without fixing the “cisis” we cannot afford to fix the rest of the country and the world…..

And the swallow Obama media can’t be too smart: many of the newspapers that got behind Obama early and without criticism are now going out of business.  Even consevative talk radio guys that haven’t had the impact of the “Obama boost” inthe form of Rahm Emanuael’s orchestrated attacks, like Rush Limbaugh, are failing.

So here is the recipe for future success:

Mitch McConnell and other Republicans need to fight the Obama plan, slow down all non essential legislation, and get people to listen.

Then need to set down principles the way Newt did in the “Contract with America” and they need to stick to them the way Ron Silver did even when Hollywood wouldn’t hire him.

It’s the economy, stupid.

Principles, sticking to principles and getting the word out will work.  It worked before.

Ron Silver: We Will Never Forget

March 16, 2009

“We will never forget. We will never forgive. We will never excuse.”

Ron Silver, who died this last weekend, delivered that great line not in a movie, on TV or as an actor: he spoke those words about the 9-11 attack by al-Qaeda upon the people of the United States as an American.  And he spoke those words despite the fact that he knew Hollywood would reject him.

And Hollywood did reject him.

“It’s affected me very badly. I can’t point to a person or a job I’ve lost, but this community is not very pluralistic,” Silver told the AP in 2005. “I haven’t worked for 10 months.”

The land of the free and the home of the brave still has trouble in some places, at some times and among some people; in accepting alternate views.

Barack Obama is the anti-Ron Silver.  Obama is about reaching out and discussing with the taliban and al-Qaeda, closing the terror prison at Gitmo, and going soft on terrorists.  He has even done away with the words “terrorists” and “enemy combatants.”

We salute Ron Silver and all men who stick by their guns.

God bless.
