National Journal's Ron Fournier writes: "A GOP operative who also requested anonymity said that Wednesday's hearing on Obamacare highlighted what's wrong with his party. 'We looked like we were beating (up) the HHS secretary,' he said of Kathleen Sebelius. 'Why do we have to always overdo it?'"
Overdo it? Shame on you, Mr. Anonymity!
The reason we have to go after administration officials such as Sebelius is that they are destroying the world's best health care system, ramping up the national debt, assaulting our liberties and brazenly lying to our faces about what they're doing. Don't you think, Mr. Measured, that it's time we pointed out to the public exactly what these people are doing? Or should we just pretend that it's politics as usual and that the administration has nothing but the best intentions in mind for Americans and just favors slightly different policies to get us there?
I'm sorry, but we don't share goals with these people, which Obama, in a rare moment of candor, admitted in his speech. They don't have the best intentions in mind for America or Americans -- at least not as I define best intentions. If the Republican Party apparatus won't allow us to fight them aggressively now, some might say it's time to find a new vehicle that will accommodate our commitment to conservatism. I don't know about you, but I'm not willing to relinquish control of the GOP to those whose excessive time on the inside has clouded their perception as to what's acceptable.
Instead of using their energy to haughtily reprimand and undermine conservatives, why don't moderates turn their sights on Obama and his Democratic Party, whose goals they assure us they reject?
If people didn't recognize Obama's extremism before, they no longer have any excuse as we witness his deceit and intransigence on Obamacare, lying about every aspect of it and telling us to ridicule our lying eyes, which are observing the unprecedented chaos and destruction his socialized medicine scheme has wrought.
It's past time to put away the silly talk about working with a man who has no intention of working with anyone who retains any respect for the American system as we know it. To candy-coat Obama's mendacity and destruction is to enable him -- and disable America. Indeed, this mindless talk of bipartisanship and moderation serves as perfect cover for the true extremists -- the people who are permanently transforming the United States of America.
Isn't five years enough to convince all of us we must quit playing patsy with these statists and join together to oppose them with as much fervor as we can muster?
Godspeed to those with the clarity of vision to see what is happening and the courage to oppose it.
