Americans are just beginning to stir from a long slumber and they don't like what they are seeing. As more and more Americans open their eyes and rub the sleep away they are seeing an out of control government being fueled by the pathetic pawns of the media complex. The pathetic pawns in the media and the ruling elites are bewildered with some even calling the American people "spoiled Brats". While the pathetic pawns may believe we are throwing a temper tantrum, it is the pathetic pawns and the liberal left that is whining and not the American people. The American people are the ones taking the role of the stern parent and it is the left in American that is whining that our demands are too high. Perhaps Eugene Robinson should have renamed his article "The spoiled sibling lashes out at the responsible parents".
Political analysts, pollsters, and election handicappers, are all providing grim news for the liberal elites. Americans taking on the role of the responsible parent is about to take the keys to the family car away from the Demcorats and force the Presidnet back to the training wheels. The President, Democrats, liberals, and the pathetic pawns have consistently ignored the lectures from the American electorate. The establishment failed to listen or even consider following the rules and restrictions that we the people placed upon them. We instructed the liberal elites to focus on the economy. We told the liberal elites we did not like their health care plan. We told the liberals we liked the Arizona law on enforcing immigration laws. We told the liberals not to allow the Mosque at ground zero. The liberals did not listen. Like any adolescent, the liberals mouthed the words the parents wanted to hear, but then did what they wanted anyway.
Going into the last 90 days of the 2008 Presidential election cycle Obama and McCain were in a dead heat. When the economy tanked later in the fall, Obama was able to strike a populisdt message that resonated with the people. Obama was able to win by a 7 point margin. Instead of reading that mandate as a verdict oin the economy, Obama and trhe liberals read that as a verdict on their agenda. They didn't listen to the American people but rather went about their merry way to socializing America.
America wanted a focus on the economy. What they got was a bailout of the unions and liberal special interests. Instead of a $787 billion stimulus of the economy, we got spending on an auto bailout that protected the unions and money spent on studying the effects of cocaine on monkeys. Obama and the liberals believing that the economy would fix itself, then fixated on taking over America's health care system. For over nine months, in the face of fierce opposition, Obama pushed the liberal dream. Obama did not listen to the American people. Democrats did not seek bi partisan support. Instead they forced a plan that we had to pass in order to find out what was in it.
The health care act is as unpopular today as it was when it passed. Amercians are now just beginning to feel the effects of the overreaching liberal dream. Our health insurance premiums are on the rise and medical facilities are beginning to close their doors. Americans for the first time are realizing rationed health care. Instead of realizing promised stabilization of costs (bending the cost curve) we are experiencing a rise in premiums. The Democrats didn't reads their bill. To paraphrase Senator Conrad who quipped "do you think people want me to waste my time reading a bill filled with legislative language? Thats what we pay staffers for". Sorry Sneator but yes we do expect our legislators to read legislation. Maybe we pay to much for your staff. Having staffers does not relieve you of your responsibility. Immediately following the health care debacle, Obama began a run on immigration reform.
Instead of focusing on the economy as he promised during his first State of the Union Address, Obama fixated on destroying the State of Arizona. Arizona passed a law enforcing what is already Federal law and Obama decided it was a good idea to sue the State. Instead of unifying the country Obama decided it was a good idea to single out one of the United States. Obama and his State Department (led by Hillary Clinton) singled out Arizona for Human Rights abuses to the United Nations. Obama ignores real human rights abuses like the stoning of women in the middle east but castigates one of our States for simply enforcing laws that are already on the books.
So Obama the Muslim Appeaser decides that it is not good enough to simply apologize tot he world for America he also decides to weigh in on the Mosque at Ground Zero. Americans again overwhelmingly are against the Moque being built in the shadows of Ground Zero. Instead of following Gov Patterson's lead, Obama decided he would go against the people and use a false argument to support the mosque. Gov Patterson appealed to the developer and attempted to persuade the developer to relocate the mosque to a more suitable area. The developer outright refused. Obama attempted to create a false constitutional crisis in order to get his way. However, their is nothing unconstitutional about zoning laws. This is not about freedom of religion. This is all about the liberal left apologizing to those that attacked America.
So Mr. Robinson, it is not the American people who are throwing the temper tantrum. It is not the American people that are spoiled brats. No, it is the liberal elites and the liberal establishment that are throwing the temper tantrum. See the snobbish liberals just don't understands that Americans govern themselves. We don't like our wisdom and judgement to be questioned. We are a representative form of government. It was Obama himself that brought this on. Remember this gem?
See Obama took the elitist attitude that the will of the people doesn't matter accept for election day (2:55-3:05 see the shrug of the shoulders? See the relegsation of the people to only making a difference on election day?). Well elections do matter. The American people will keep voting until their voices are heard. We will keep taking the keys away and give themn to someone else until our representatives in Government start representing the people again. How ironic that the liberals see no issue with placing a tax cheat in charge of the Internal Revenue Service (read Tim Geithner). How about having the tax evader and low income rent abuser Charles Rangel writing our tax bills. Sorry, Eugene but it is the liberal left who are the sibling throwing the temper tantrum. Americans are awakening and taking responsibility for their government. The people are the parents. Please take your snobbish attitude, your whining rhetoric, and yoiur pathetic opinion somewhere else. Americans have awakened; Hear them roar.
