When I first heard the audio clip from ABC’s “Good Morning America” featuring Sen. Biden claiming that “it’s time to be patriotic...time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut” by forcing Americans who make over 250 thousand a year to pay higher taxes, I couldn’t really believe my ears. I know Biden can be a loose cannon -- just ask convenience store clerks with accents or Black Americans who would be (rightfully) offended at being called clean and articulate -- but not this nuts. Surely the Democratic VP candidate wasn’t stupid enough to claim that paying higher taxes is a form of patriotism, was he?

Not only did he say it once, but he has repeated the claim. He even angrily defended his comments at a union gathering later the same day.

I can just picture the next Democrat campaign billboard: “Get Taxed Through The Nose, Wave A Flag!”

And finally, there is Sen. Obama getting pretty aggressive with his rhetoric. At a rally in Ohio, Obama told thousands of cheering supporters: “I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.”

I personally witnessed a number of the Democrat anarchists in St. Paul, site of the GOP Convention. The police there accurately described them as a bunch of dangerous criminals who were capable of serious vandalism, violence and even death. They sure do know the meaning of getting in one’s face.

How nice of Sen. Obama to encourage them to “get in (the) faces” of the loyal opposition. Real responsible.

If a looney Democrat beats an independent or Republican to death over the backyard picket fence, I wonder if Obama will feel bad?

It’s definitely turning ugly. And the Republican Party will be tested. Will we “jump ugly” and take the lefties on by degenerating to their level?

I truly hope not.

We’ll win this election on the strength of ideas and philosophy and moral clarity.

We’ll beat the failed Democrat policies of the past by invoking the true working class spirit of good and decent Americans who want to work hard, achieve success, and celebrate the sanctity of this, the greatest country in the world.

As painful as it is to witness the classlessness of Democrats, this is a process that has to happen. Millions of Americans are watching with their mouths agape, positively stunned that Barack Obama’s party could stoop so low.

Instead of hiding in the shadows, I’m thankful that so many Democrats are willing to expose their true sense of self.

This can only be great news for the Republican Party on November 4th.
