Mitt Romney could have named Bugs Bunny as his running mate and the puerile and increasingly hysterical Left would have labeled the rabbit as an extreme right-wing ideologue whose idea of governance is to murder the elderly, bitch-slap the poor, defenestrate the infirm, and happily castrate a few stray squirrels as he hops his way to a coney Klan meeting. But to a deranged pack of ‘progressives’ that critiques a Marxist like Barack Obama as “deeply conservative”, the choice of Paul Ryan, a man who believes that government should live within its means, is akin to the dawning of the Apocalypse. Romney with Ryan has suddenly become a formidable opponent, and you can hear the Lefties shrieking from coast to coast:
The liberal assault on Paul Ryan has commenced. But the first round of attacks can’t provide much solace to Democrats, who assume they will be able to demonize the Republican vice presidential candidate with ease. The first 48 hours of Ryan’s candidacy has already seen a deluge of abuse from the mainstream media editorial pages and columnists … Liberals like Robert Reich, who took to the Huffington Post to howl that Ryan’s ideas are “social Darwinism” or former Times editor Bill Keller who damned the prospective next GOP administration as a compendium of every wicked conservative idea ever conceived, clearly believe all they need to do is to just call Ryan and to a lesser extent Romney, every name they can think of.
Barry himself, now publicly displaying more scarlet than a sun-baked Swede, leaves most of the mud-slinging to his seizured minions, touting instead his ” … new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared”, and even promoting the nationalization of American industry:
“I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back. Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry.”
Something is roaring all right, but it’s the almost 13 million citizens out of work because of the Obamaconomy, not Barry’s beleaguered Government Motors. That so-called ‘bail-out’ stiffed taxpayers for more than $25 billion, much of which disappeared into the long coat pockets of his UAW union comrades, while the value of the freshly nationalized GM stock receded faster than Joe Biden’s hairline. And this is what the Big Red One hopes to do to the rest of America’s industry?
The Obama Administration redistributed $26.5 more to the union than UAW would have received legally in the bankruptcy proceedings had the rule of law and contract been followed.
Obama’s nightmarish “vision” has been around since 1848, when Marx and Engels published The Communist Manifesto, and wherever the Reds have ruled, it’s never prosperity that’s shared, only poverty and pain, distributed at the point of a gun. After 3 1/2 years, Obama’s own team of Reds and Pinks is finding its thinly veiled socialism an increasingly hard sell. Half-filled venues and lines of supporters shorter than those at Chick-Fil-A on Appreciation Day tell the sorry tale. Worries over empty seats during Barry’s re-coronation gala plague apprehensive Democrats who know that perception usually trumps reality — unless the perception is the reality. Barry’s coattails are now so frayed that even the incorrigible harridan San Fran Nan is urging her fellow Jackasses to stay at home and watch re-runs of The West Wing:
” … I’m not encouraging members to go to the convention no matter what the situation was, because they can be home.”
Still, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the Jackasses are desperate, opines Greg Lewis:
Democrats’ scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners campaign is not a sign they’re desperate; it’s who they are. They’re the most subversive, dirtiest enemy America has, and they must be stopped.
But it’s not who they are that counts — it’s who we are. Do Americans really want to allow a cabal of dishonorable left-wing radicals another four years in which to dismantle the U.S. Constitution and transform the country into something unrecognizable except to octogenarian former members of the Comintern? Do we even know the difference anymore between our enemies and our friends? We’ll soon see.
