‘He Counted On America To Be Passive. He Counted Wrong.’

Regarding the POTUS, we can expect exactly 0 substantial reflection, course alteration, or improvement in the political atmosphere between now and November, emphasis mine:

Whatever the case, the next seven months going into November are going to be about domination and attempted marginalization, not cooperation. He’ll seek to paint the GOP as obstructionist, which, btw, is how the GOP beat Daschle in 2004. I came upon that in looking at opposition to Reid versus Daschle, the only Senate leader to lose his seat since 1952. If the GOP caves, their base will abandon them, resulting in disaster in the fall. At the same time, the people can not afford to stand down, either, as the GOP’s minority status leaves them toothless without our many voices behind them. And no matter what, the months ahead are going to be long, hard and increasingly confrontational politically.

Actually, Dan has it backwards: We The People cannot expect to delegate the preservation of the Republic to the GOP.

We The People have to follow and draw attention to the Tea Party Express, the Andrew Breitbarts, and activities like the Tax Day Tea Party to inform the GOP in Congress that there is still a country worth the struggle against fascism.

He counted on America to be Passive. He Counted Wrong.

    If we can get Lindsey Graham, John McCain, et al, out of control of the Republican Party, we can still win this one at the Ballot Box.

    That’s my primary goal, because if we get more RINOs, and get Socialism Lite from them, it may get to be time for the third box.

    I made a comment to my wife, Daddy, and my In-Laws the other day. “If we can’t repeal this Health-Care thing, I’m leaving the Country.”

    Everyone immediately wanted to know where I was going!

    “Nowhere. Does the word secession mean anything to y’all?”

    I’m just barely 30 miles North of the Red, as the crow flies. I figure if it comes to that, I’m in “Greater Texas.”

    Eat that, leftists!

    It cracks me up the liberals think the T Partiers are lizards from the sewers of the land NOT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!! Are we being punk’d?? Who are these people?? How in the heck did they get this far up the ladder?? I know Acorn had a lot to do with it because Obama is a crappy actor. I don’t know anyone that voted for this DORK! Geez laweez I’m glad the collective has awakened! You must go to commieblasters.com so we can kick so political butt people. Then go give Sarah some money because she doesn’t lie through her teeth and has the record to prove it! Snap out of it and quit letting the libs control the verbiage it’s been over a year already and we are still being called racists for Gods sake. Laugh in their faces or talk about math they don’t know what that is, hopefully someone will do it on TV already. THEY ARE SPENDING OUR MONEY AND THEN SCREWING US AT THE SAME TIME AND IT HURTS!!

    Never thought I would say this, but who can blame Obama? The American media rolled over for him; the American people blindly followed him (and worshiped him as a messiah); and he won a campaign on a bunch of lies.

    He’s not counting on all of America to be passive – just the majority, which has proven itself to be lacking in the critical analysis department.

    Reagan planned to topple Khadafy until Sen. Leahy found out and warned Khadafy on the front page of the Times.

    Oddly, instead of being grateful to Leahy, Khadafy bombed the Pan Am flight over Lockerbie just as Reagan was leaving.

    Thanks, Sen. Leahy.
