Why liberals are panicked ...

     Why liberals are panicked ...

[] The centerpiece of this vision is, of course, Obamacare, the most sweeping social reform in the past half-century, affecting one-sixth of the economy and directly touching the most vital area of life of every citizen.

As the only socially transformational legislation in modern American history to be enacted on a straight party-line vote, Obamacare is wholly owned by the Democrats. Its unraveling would catastrophically undermine their underlying ideology of ever-expansive central government providing cradle-to-grave care for an ever-grateful citizenry.

For four years, this debate has been theoretical. Now it’s real. And for Democrats, it’s a disaster. [

Well, yeah, they're panicked, but I've read this book before.  It was called "Clinton Impeached."  Featured that night on the news was Al Gore, from the South Lawn of the White House where Willy was being feted,  saying that  "the House vote to impeach President Clinton “disregarded the plain wishes and good will of the American people and the plain meaning of our Constitution. [And that he was one of Americas's greates presidents]”   

In the weeks that followed, after the Senate failed to convict,  the media were able to convince America that. not only was Clinton never impeached, but thevery attempt was an invasion of his personal privacy, and that the blow-jobs he was getting from Monica Lewinsky were not even adulterous.  From that moment on, every school girl would be cajoled with, "Come on, it's not sex; it's just a blow job." 

Before this is over, the media will have George W. Bush and Mitt Romney on the dock for high treason; wait and see.. 

New Aussie Government Nail it!

Mitch McConnell as Black Bart

Black Bart

Looks like McConnell is picking up enemies like crazy.  Imaging threatening individual blog owners!  I think he’ll lose.


NRSC, Dayspring Threaten Blogger With Private Emails, Black-listing

November 12, 2013
I was debating whether to publish this post. After seeing this below pop up just now, I decided to go with it. There may be a part two, as well. Stay tuned.
Evidently it isn’t only groups establishment Republicans are now threatening and blacklisting. I received similar threats below last week. See below.
Mitch McConnell has a bad habit of blaming the grassroots for the party’s losses and ignoring our role in the party’s victories.
Immediately after learning of a recent NRSC effort to attack the GOP’s grassroots base and any potential primary challenges to its incumbents, I shot off an email to them suggesting a conference call, as I suspected the tactics would backfire. I still believe that and, in fact, they already have. The opposition to McConnell in Kentucky has grown significantly precisely because of the heavy-handed tactics of what appears to be a bunch of frat boys running wild and carelessly running their mouths on behalf of the NRSC.
They seem to have a bad habit of doing that from the New York Times, to Twitter and now to bloggers in email. Big mistake.

[Elective Aside] The first time Mitch McConnell crossed my radar was in 1990.  First elected to the senate in 1984, on the coattails of Reagan's landslide victory, I'd paid scant attention to him. In 1990 he faced a daunting reelection challenge, and it's here I remember him
for this reason. 

Black Mitch
I was watching C-Span one night and, horry clap!there was Ronald Maximus giving a stump speech for Mitch.  Reagan had yet to announce, nor even know I suppose, that he was suffering from Alzheimer's, but it was one of the few times I'd seen him since he left office.  If RR was going to bat for him, then the goofy looking Mitch McConnell was duly registered in my brainal file system as "Good Man!"

I'm not necessarily saying now that McConnell is a bad man; you can be the judge of that. But he is a leader in the GOP
that rudderless mothership for establishment Republicans who fought tooth and nail against even Reagan's nomination. And whose comfort zone includes Ted Kennedy over Sarah Palin; and desire the approbation of CBS and the New York Times over the wishes of the electorate.

If I was writing a political thriller screenplay, about how Democrats and Republicans had agreed to work together, the better to guide the proletariat into brave new worlds they probably wouldn't want to visit, while locking out potential spoilers; then Mitch would be played by Black Bart.
