All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Don't Be Fooled - Again

As we approach the inauguration of the new President I find myself in a terrible quandary. With a compliant, liberal, pussy-whipped media singing his praises and the neo-bootlicking conservative analysts’ suddenly feeling non-partisan, while their political enemies plan their demise, true political conservatives are being pushed into the cold hard ground. Now that President Bush is leaving office liberals are now crying for a new bi-partisanship. They want us to forget or at least ignore the terrible way they treated President Bush for eight consecutive years. Many may remember that Bush too, also came to Washington and spoke of a new tone; A less partisan atmosphere in which the Congress could accomplish common goals. But it was not to be and many liberals argued that it shouldn't. They argued the media and the Congress should not be a rubber stamp for any President. For eight continuous years they battered the President until he was beaten to a pulp, and finally acquiesced to their view of the world. He leaves office merely a shell of the man he was. Now they want conservatives to take the gloves off. Be nice. Give the man (Obama) a chance. Be better than we were. I don't think so. First of all, we conservatives have always been better than liberals. We have always been more honest about policy positions. We have always been more honest about our political goals. We have never had to disguise conservative goals the way that liberals must disguise their goals. Euphemisms like single-payer plan for socialized medicine, government investments for tax increases, are just two examples of the many ways that liberals in government want to fool us into going along with something that is inherently bad for the country. We won't be fooled again. It doesn't matter what kind of clothes this new emperor wears. His ideas are naked. Despite the foolishness of many conservatives that believe he will not govern as he promised I believe he will. He wants to take this country down the path of European socialism and he will unless like-minded conservatives stay on his case.
