Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) managed to inflame liberal passions when he bluntly stated that the top political goal of the Republican Party was to prevent the re-election of Barack Obama.
As reported, in part, at Reference 1, the straight-talker from Kentucky pulled no punches in this statement before the election:
“Over the past week, some have said it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term in office.
But the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill; to end the bailouts; cut spending; and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all these things it is to put someone in the White House who won’t veto any of these things.
We can hope the President will start listening to the electorate after Tuesday’s election. But we can’t plan on it.”
Judging by the tone and tenor of Obama’s mass eulogy for deposed Democrats Wednesday morning, Mitch McConnell’s planning seems spot on.
This president, and progressives in general, believe that Tuesday night was all about the inherited Bush economy, combined with a lack of an effective marketing plan for selling Marxism to ignorant capitalists.
Obama’s problem, and that of the Democrat Party, is quite the opposite!
In fact, the American public has been over exposed to ObamaMania, ObamaCare, ObamaNomics, Michelle Obama, and CHANGE, CHANGE, CHANGE!
Damn the dreaded and catastrophic CHANGE!
The root-cause of the failed Obama presidency is simple: The mainstream media stubbornly refused to independently vet Obama’s credentials because 1. He was (is) a clean and articulate person of color with no Negro dialect, and 2. He was (is) a certifiable liberal extremist which conforms to the MSM template for the presidency.
Egged on by dedicated Bush-haters in the MSM, voters from coast-to-coast were wooed into voting for a naïve community organizer based on fairy-tale visions of free health care, housing, and food; a massive transfer of wealth from the accomplished to the untalented and slothful; a gentler, more understanding policy toward terrorists, which would surely prompt the lion to lay with the lamb, in peace; and other liberal foolishness long ago proven to be a recipe for disaster wherever allowed to prosper.
All of which means that Mitch McConnell is quite right in pointing out that the fellow presently occupying the Oval Office is public enemy number 1, a fact confirmed on Tuesday night by recovered ObamaMites from coast-to-coast.
With the tragic exception, that is, of the great state of California which, by electing Jerry Brown as governor AGAIN, has ridiculed the whole notion of change while surrendering one of the world’s largest economies to a man who once took a vow of poverty– and who seems likey to have Californians supping from the poverty Kool-Aid that always accompanies leftist regimes.
With all due respect to the governor-elect, how in Hades can a recycled 70s hippie be described as “Progressive”?
But, back to Mitch McConnell and the GOP righting of America:
Although conservatives expect the newly constituted Congress to accomplish much, the fact is that the Republicans have already made an invaluable contribution to the future of our great nation.
That was achieved Tuesday night when the Republican Party dethroned Barack Obama and declared his Marxist agenda dead and buried.
Preventing an anti-American Marxist from inflicting further damage on our blessed nation over the next two years is, in and of itself, a magnificent achievement.
The thought of limiting Barack Obama to one term, including two years as a badly-wounded lame duck, rockets one into political ecstasy!
What Could Be Nobler?
