Why Don’t We Just Give In To Low Self-Esteem And Re-Elect Barack?

Posted on | September 10, 2012 | 16 Comments

Building on the theme of this Power Line post, let’s just admit that:

  • We can’t have nice things.
  • Our ancestors were bad.
  • Taking our turn at the bottom of the global gutter is the only way we can hope to be shriven of the defects that Barack has identified in our national character.

I, for one, welcome my finger-pointing overlord. Stockholm Syndrome, they say, is good for the karma. Whip me, beat me, make me vote Democrat.

    We need to cowboy up and win this election. Do what you can and have some faith that voters will do the right thing.

    Pessimists have all the luck. If they’re right they get to say, “I told you so!” While if they’re wrong they get to join in the general celebration.

    But cheer up, all. Obama, like the Chinese emperors of old, has lost the mandate of Heaven. The signs are all around us, and the scent of Democrat desperation fills the air. Romney needs only a decent debate performance to seal the win.

    This is no laughing matter Smitty. The 230+ year experiment in human liberty is about to come to a crushing end. The only question I have is will wussy-ass conservatives finally have the balls to join us libertarians in fighting the revolution? Conservatives are oh-so-polite. “We can’t say Obama is a Muslim. Golly geez, we can’t say Obama is not an American and was born in Kenya, and grew up in Indonesia. We can’t talk about his trip to Pakistan in 1982 to meet with Islamic terrorists… That’s all conspiracy stuff don’t you know…”
    You all conservatives better start getting nasty, real, realy nasty with the Democrats. We libertarians can’t do it alone.

    Or on the trigger of your gun?

    I believe, DA, that, considering Barry’s a Leftie, the phrase should read: has lost the mandate of Heaven On Earth.

    “we can’t say Obama is not an American and was born in Kenya”

    You can say it, but you’d be an idiot to do so, because he wasn’t.

    Why can’t you focus on how piss-poor a president he’s been, how corrupt his administration has been, and on the people he’s been associated with all his life?

    “We can’t have nice things.”

    Following on your logic…..guns are not nice things. Therefore, we can have guns.

    Separated at Birth: Elizabeth Warren and…? Let’s elect her too. If we are going down, let’s go down big.

    Come on, Eric. Obama looks more like Frank Marshall Davis then he does like his supposed old man.

    Is there a drink minimum [not that that has ever been a problem for me].
