They canceled work because of the snow, so I got to stay home all day. Me being…well, me, I caught a bit of the news. And there were two things that caught my eye:
1. The Dow Jones fell to its lowest level in almost twelve years.
2. All the Obama Administration, the Democrat Party, and by default NBC and CNN wanted to talk aboot was Rush Limbaugh.
Of course they were ignoring the parts where he said he wanted American to succeed and wanted us to all prosper, or where he wants the policies to fail because he thinks they are bad for America. He just said something yucky aboot President Obama, and needs to be destroyed accordingly. Good luck with that.
The real news that Limbaugh made was that he put his finger on Obama’s “original sin”-the error that will ultimately lead to the Democrats’ demise if Republicans can get their act together and begin a more basic philosophical debate about the role of government in people’s lives. “All politicians,” Limbaugh said, “including President Obama, are temporary stewards of this nation. It is not their task to remake the founding of this country. It is not their task to tear it apart and rebuild it in their image.”
If Americans turn their backs on Obama, and at this point that looks unlikely but possible if the economy continues in its downward spiral, it will be because he tried to remake America in his own image. We didn’t sign up for a new founding father. We did not abandon our belief that despite our imperfections, America is the solution-not the problem-to every challenge facing the people in this country and, in many cases, the world. Most of us did not come to the same conclusion Obama did that America behaved badly and now we are being punished.
Most of us love this country for the opportunity she provides. We love her for the decency of her people. And we believe that our president’s job is to cheer her on not talk her down.
Nicole Wallace is hardly what you would call a far right ideologue; I mean she worked for the McCain campaign. She’s even wrote aboot how moved she was during President Obama’s inaugural and how even former Bush advisers were on board. She’s not someone who does things just because Rush Limbaugh tells her to.
So if Obama, Rahm Emmanuel, the Democrat Party, NBC News et al want to turn Rush Limbaugh into a straw man to hide the fact that the market has fallen close to 3,000 points since Dear Leader was anointed, so be it.
Not all of us buy it though, and I’m not even that big of a Limbaugh fan in the first place.
UPDATE: That’s my Jindal…
UPDATE DEUX: Somewhat related…oy.
UPDATE TRES: I rarely ever call someone the c-word…
