Don’t Blame Obama


He didn’t make this mess all by himself. Michael Goodwin:

We are witnessing the total collapse of a bad idea.

Obamaism, a quasi-socialist commitment to a more powerful government at home and an abdication of American leadership around the world, is being exposed as a historic calamity. It is fueling domestic fear and global disorder and may well lead to a world war.

If there is a smidgen of a silver lining, it is that the unraveling, complete with Obama’s shameless attempts to duck responsibility, is playing out on the eve of the midterm elections. Fortunately, voters seem ready to respond by giving Republicans control of both houses of Congress.

I second that emotion, and not just because Obama is a failure. For all his narcissism, he didn’t make this mess alone.

He was aided and abetted by every Democrat in Congress. They marched in lockstep with his cockamamie policies, from ObamaCare to open borders. They protected corrupt leaders in numerous federal agencies, from the IRS to the General Services Administration. They stymied efforts to find the truth about Benghazi and the Fast and Furious gunrunning debacle.

They ceded their constitutional obligations and allowed Obama to crash the system of checks and balances. The vast majority stood silent while he gutted the military and abandoned our allies, including Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and courted Iran, the most menacing nation on Earth.

With painfully few exceptions, Democrats put their loyalty to him above their duty to America.


I had an epiphany a while back. I used to be a proud big-government liberal Democrat. I sincerely believed in using the power of government to make the world a better place. As far as I was concerned there was nothing that could not be solved by good, clean, competent government.

When I saw government fail I told myself that it was because it was corrupt or incompetent, or it was because the Republicans wanted it to fail and were sabotaging it.

The events of 2008 caused me to rethink my political beliefs. I started with rethinking my support for the people who supposedly represented those beliefs – the Democratic party. Obviously they were not good, clean nor competent. They took power in January 2009 and proceeded to FUBAR the country. The nadir was when they passed that huge clusterfuck known as Obamacare.

That’s when I had my epiphany. For nearly three decades I had watched human politicians fail liberalism. Suddenly I realized that the ideology of big government DID NOT WORK.

It doesn’t matter who runs it, the result will always be the same – failure. Obama just happens to be egregiously incompetent and corrupt. Bill Clinton gave the illusion of success, but he was fortunate to hold office in a time of great prosperity. Not to mention the fact that he has been attacked from the left for not being liberal enough.

Here are some of the main areas in which big government liberalism fails:

1. There are some things that government just can’t do (like regulate the economy).

2. There are some things that government shouldn’t do (like regulate us).

3. Taxes and spending need to balance.

4. There is a limit to how much government can tax.

5. Centralized control is inherently inefficient and corrupt.

The best example of why big government doesn’t work is the V-8 engine. The basic V-8 is a powerful and efficient motor, but when you start loading it down with power steering, air conditioning and smog gear it quits being so powerful and efficient. There is a limit to how much a V-8 motor can do, and if you overload it the poor thing will eventually quit working completely.

But no matter how powerful and efficient it is, a V-8 still can’t cure cancer or change a baby’s diaper.

Now don’t get me wrong – we NEED government. Our Founding Fathers were very smart men and they designed a pretty good government that was limited and had its powers separated and spread around. We need to get back to that design.

Hopefully, today will be the first big step in that direction.

    When I cast my first vote for JFK, I believed that we could change the world and the Democratic party was the party of the future and the Republicans were the party of big business and the past.
    It took until 2008 for the mask to come off the face of the democratic party and for me to wake up and really look and see what it had become. It hurts to look in the mirror and wonder did you by your prior votes help them stay in power so long?
    Was it always so ugly? Did it always have such contempt for American Citizens? Did it always want to take away freedom and have this country become socialist?
    I feel that I should go back and apologize to those that I argued politics with always taking the democratic side.

  3. SHV says:

    We would be better off if we had Liberal and/or Conservative political choices. Our current Uni-Party of the repressive and expanding police state, crony capitalism, speech codes, “settled” science, and co-dependent bribery and extortion have nothing to do with either Liberal or Conservative political philosophies.

    Just posted this on facebook, because libertarians, opt-outers, rabid political followers, etc are already bitching at each other:

    So today will begin the sniping back and forth among those who do/don’t vote for various reasons.

    Here’s my take: I think both parties and the entire system is corrupt as hell, and will likely collapse of its own bureaucratic weight at some future point. I’m not sure it’s even salvageable. But I still vote – because shorter term, it does make a tangible diference to real people in small ways, even if it ain’t “saving the country.”

    If you vote for principled reasons, I’m not going to tell you that you’re a deluded brainwashed fool propping up/legitimizing a corrupt failed system. Because maybe, like me, you KNOW all that and vote anyway.

    If you don’t vote for principled reasons, I’m not going to tell you that you’re a bad citizen who “doesn’t care” about the country. Because maybe your non-vote is a message of withdrawal of consent entirely, and helps you sleep at night.

    So long as you actually have a conscience, and are following it as best you can, you’re ok with me. Peace.

  9. angienc says:

    Obama cut a telephone ad for Kay Hagan in NC — I guess that means the fix is in & the WH is confident they’ll be able to pull out a “win” there like they did in 2008 for Obama and *almost* did again in 2012 (and were able to do in FL, OH & NH).
    This way Obama will get to pretend that in places where he actually campaigned he was able to make a difference and get the Dem elected. Do you think he knows the truth or is he 100% lied to/delusional/protected?
    I’m thinking the later.

  14. Somebody says:

    I’m sick and damn tired of voting hours being extended. If you can’t manage to fucking vote over the course of two weeks then piss off. I don’t begrudge anyone that is in line when the polls close, fine let them vote but keeping polls open for 2 hours is bullshit and it keeps happening election after election. What, the bastards can’t cheat enough over two weeks they need those last couple of hours??? It’s always south Florida too, what the hell is wrong with those people that they can’t manage to fucking vote? Oh I know they want to be sure and get enough people to cancel out the votes in the rest of the state.
    http://www.local10.com/news/crist-camp-files-emergency-motion-to-extend-voting-hours-in-broward-county/29531010

    Funny they needed extended hours for early voting too, again in Broward countyhttp://miamiherald.typepad.com/nakedpolitics/2014/11/charlie-crist-campaign-broward-asked-about-possibly-extending-weekend-early-voting-hours.html

    • DeniseVB says:

      Isn’t Florida in 2 time zones already ? Maybe give them 3 now 😉

      My son used to live in DWS’ district, she has Broward wrapped around her curls.

      • Somebody says:

        Every election either Broward or Miami Dade have “issues”. I’m sick of it.

        • DeniseVB says:

          We, in Virginia, actually have two or three separate states in election season. NoVa, a big government stronghold vs the active duty/ beachies vs. the mountain people (looking at you DT/snork). While Gillespie’s @ 60 percent now with 1% reporting, Fox got it right being too close to call 🙂

          • DandyTIger says:

            Yep. Looks like Warren will get this one, but Gillespie can call a recount if we wants since it’s so close. I actually like Warren, but would be kind of funny if Gillespie took it.

        • The Klown says:

          I remember in the 2008 Indiana primary when the votes from Gary were delayed for several hours, then came in heavily for Obama. Not enough to win the state, but the delay kept Hillary’s win out of the east coast news.

        • elliesmom says:

          I don’t know if you heard, but the judge denied Broward from extending hours.

          • Somebody says:

            No I didn’t hear that, thank goodness!!! Like I said, it happens every damn time and I’m sick of it. Why does southern FL think they’re so damn special that they should get longer voting hours than the rest of the state……every single time they whine.

    • elliesmom says:

      I appreciate your rant. We only have one day to vote here in MA. The only way to vote other than between 7am and 8pm on the first Tuesday of the month of November is by absentee ballot. I live in a very small town, @8,000 people. We have 2 places to vote, and each place has two precincts, which makes the lines go faster. We vote by bubble sheet which is immediately counted by a scantron machine, but there’s a paper trail. When the polls close tonight, the only ballots that will need to be counted will be the absentee ones, and they can go through the machine, too. By 8:30, the poll workers will go home. While there is certainly opportunity for fraud, if the ballots themselves are challenged, it’s not hard to just count the paper sheets. I was asked for an ID this morning when I voted although at least half the poll workers know me by name. The Democrats control this state. Why are they not screaming that people are being “disenfranchised” here? It’s about as restrictive as it gets.

      • DeniseVB says:

        My experience trying to vote absentee in VA is harder than getting a photo i.d.

      • Somebody says:

        We have bubble in ballot sheets in FL too and they are also scanned into a machine. The ballot this election is very small, very few races so WTF is the problem? South FL always has issues. I remember the long lines in 2012 in Miami Dade and them extending voting hours. I just think that’s BS. If for some reason there is a long line at poll closing time then hand out numbers and anybody that shows up after 7pm is shit out of luck.

    • The Klown says:

      there is no excuse when election after election the same places keep having the same problems. I find it troubling that the places that keep having problems are Democrat strongholds.

    • Constance says:

      Why don’t all of the states go to mail in ballots only. It cuts out intimidation at the polls, discussions about ID at the polls, discussions about how long the polls should be open, Democrat Governors putting only two voting machines per precinct in Republican areas, you can’t herd in a bunch of illegals at the last minute. Electronic machines which switch votes, It really works great.

  15. fif says:

    All the ranting about the “ideology” of the right applies to the left as well. These fancy ideas about a human utopia are all well and good until the rubber meets the road, and then you have people like Obama spending his vacations with billionaires on Martha’s Vineyard as he scolds the 1%. It’s not real. I have friends who point to Scandinavian countries as examples of successful socialism. It’s apples and oranges. Comparing tiny countries to the infrastructure and bureaucracy of the U.S. is ridiculous, and who do we trust to “distribute the wealth.” How has that worked out – just ask the middle class. I just received notification that my health insurance premiums will go up in January, but they very wisely said that I will be informed of the price increase in December – AFTER the elections. They have all proven themselves to be untrustworthy. Human beings will be human beings and restrictions and oversight are essential. I couldn’t decide if I was going to vote today – and as I drove by the polling place it just felt more authentic to be a conscientious objector. They are all the same to me. Until there is accountability and transparency, the wheels just keep spinning.

    • elliesmom says:

      I kind of felt the way you did about voting today, but one of my former students is running for state rep. I encouraged him to consider politics as a career when he was 13. You can imagine the scenario where a teacher might do that. 😉 I decided I needed to put my vote where my advice was so I stopped by the library.

    • The Klown says:

      The power to regulate the economy is the power to pick winners and losers. The incentive for corruption is huge.

      The power to redistribute wealth is the power to buy votes with bread and circuses. We managed to delay the consequences of voting for free stuff with huge deficits.

    I don’t know why the talking head haven’t called the FL governor’s race but I’ll call it for Scott
    There are only a couple of counties still out, the only one of those that might go for Crist is Volusia and so far with 86 of 125 precints reporting Scott leads Crist by 4 points. The other counties are in the panhandle and they’ll most likely go for Scott

    I don’t know what counties are still out in NC and NH, but both incumbents seem to be holding on to their seats according to the results scrolling across the screen. Conversely I don’t know what counties are still out in VA, but Gillespie seems to be holding his lead.

    • Somebody says:

      According to google the last county in VA just reported and they’re showing Gillespie with 51.13%. I presume the networks aren’t calling it due to absentee ballots?????

      • Somebody says:

        I see what looks like only 1 county reporting in NH. It looks like about half of NC results are in, but I don’t know of the outstanding counties if they’re R or D counties or how large or small they are.

  24. Somebody says:

    I guess I’m the only one watching results???

    In other news FL approved medical marijuana. I actually didn’t vote for that because I feel like it’s just a step along the way to legalization. I forsee LOTS of homeless rushing to FL if we legalize pot, since we have much nicer weather than WA or CO. Also, prescription marijuana pills have been legal and available in FL for a long time so I saw no need for “medical marijuana” since it already exists in pill form.

  25. leslie says:

    It took forever to vote here tonight. There were several referenda (6-7) to read through and vote on. (Should Illinois require all health care plans include birth control for women; should the minimum wage be raised to $10/hour; increasing taxes to increase money to schools, constitutional amendments, . .) then there was the retention of judges, election of judges, election of governor, senator, state positions, congressional reps, state leg reps, etc, etc, etc, Beyond the length of the ballots, the polling place was crowded and after waiting for about 15 minutes for a touch screen and then while I was voting, a man hollered out, “This polling place closes in 30 minutes. this made no sense to me as it was to stay open until 7:00 and it wasn’t even 6:00. On the South Side of “the city”, I understand they were doing same-day registration/voting as well as keeping some of the polling places open until 10:00 due to late opening of some poling places. I guess Gov. Quinn is really in trouble if they are going to that much trouble on the South Side of Chicago on election day.

  28. WMCB says:

    And this is why feminists need to wise the fuck up. MOST women, while many are nominally pro-choice, are decidedly uncomfortable with CELEBRATING abortion – especially unlimited, whenever, at whatever month you want abortion, like it’s some glorious thing.

    WOMEN voted down Wendy Davis in Texas. Women.

    • elliesmom says:

      I think what the rabid abortion supporters don’t get is the more they push the envelope, the more those of us who are tepid supporters back away. “Pro-choice” covers a lot of territory.

      • WMCB says:

        Exactly. Even women who ARE pro-choice don’t want millions of convenience abortions annually. And if you push them, they will back up toward more restriction vs. free-for-all.

        • piper says:

          I’m not a fan of abortion but if a woman really wants one – fine – but it’s on her dime and same goes for birth control. Enough with having other people pay for their sexual encounters.
          I do feel differently about rape and incest – we should help out in these cases.

        • The Klown says:

          I’m a guy, but I am pro-choice AND I think abortion is at best a necessary evil. Abortion TAKES A HUMAN LIFE. Sometimes that has to be done. I don’t want government to be too intrusive in private affairs, and I am a realist. Legal 1st term abortion is not ideal but it is a compromise we can live with. But I’m not going to glorify or even “normalize” it.

        What I’m saying is that she didn’t know a lot about winter. And when somebody told her about the “bread bag” trick, she didn’t understand that the bread bags go ON THE INSIDE OF THE BOOTS. Not the outside.

        I slipped and fell on my ass for eight long blocks on the walk to school, and was ridiculed when I got there. And gave my mom hell when I went home from lunch.

    Dems really have a stunning disconnect with the electorate. The Repubs do to, and only won because it was about Dems. But seriously, Dems are insane right now. They need to do some serious re-thinking how they want to move forward. And with Repubs, if they think this was about them, they’re nuts too. They need to do some seriously good strategizing and send Obama a sequence of bills Americans really like and want. If they go crazy confrontational on unpopular things, or say crazy things, they’re toast yet again.

    Oregon legalized pot. It’s on the ballot in Alaska too, but no word yet.

    Absolutely true. If the few remaining Dem adults were put back in charge they could turn this around in time for 2016. Chances of that happening, though, are nil.

    Sorry Hillary, apparently American’s think businesses create jobs, and voted accordingly.

    The funny part is that Republicans gained about 6 seats in 2010, but they had a lot wider of a gap to make up. When Specter turned and gave the Democrats 60 seats, it took about 5 years for Republicans to have a net gain of 12 Senate seats. That’s pretty impressive.

    Also, Republicans stand to gain 9 or more Governor’s races in a country fewer than 25 Democratic governors. We could end up with 4 out of 5 governors being from the GOP. 2010 really did decimate the Democrats’ back bench. With losers like Wendy Davis and future loser Elizabeth Warren, there’s not a great future for the party of Obama.

    Oh yeah, I forgot.

    Harry Reid is a nobody again!

    Hey Nancy, stop being bossy and make me a sammich. {{oh, that’s so not PC}}

    5 of the new seats in Congress won tonight by the GOP were women.

  88. WMCB says:

    Chuckle. Overheard on CNN comments:

    “In other news, the Democratic Governor’s Association will be holding their yearly meeting in a Washington DC phone booth”

    Ah-ha-ha-ha.

  94. abc says:

    I like to see a shelacking where a shelacking is due. The old Schnaeden…oh forget it, I can’t spell that. However, at some point, I wish the public would realize that when they’re mad at the party in power, shelacking it with the other party isn’t going to fix things. (And lather, rinse, repeat.).

    We need some truly viable 3rd parties. But we will never get them as long these parties have a stranglehold on our politics. What is the answer? I don’t know.
