Krauthammer Agrees!: Twofer Tuesday: The Middle
Update: Feb. 19, 2010 – Krauthammer agrees!:
..It turned out that the country’s problems were not problems of structure but of leadership. Reagan and Clinton had it. Carter didn’t. Under a president with extensive executive experience, good political skills and an ideological compass in tune with the public, the country was indeed governable.
It’s 2010, and the first-year agenda of a popular and promising young president has gone down in flames. Barack Obama’s two signature initiatives — cap-and-trade and health-care reform — lie in ruins.
Desperate to explain away this scandalous state of affairs, liberal apologists haul out the old reliable from the Carter years: “America the Ungovernable.” So declared Newsweek. “Is America Ungovernable?” coyly asked the New Republic. Guess the answer….
The leadership of the Democratic Party still does not get it.
The lamestream journOlists are trying to spin the departure of Bayh as a sign the ‘system doesn’t work’ i.e. government is broken.
Huh funny that, I remember Dubyah getting Medicare Part D, two wars, No Child Left Behind and tax cuts passed with far less of a majority and the same system of governance. Big Dawg got NAFTA, SCHIP, FMLA, balanced the budget. Both created millions of jobs.
The system is not broken, the leadership is weak. OWN YOUR CANDIDATE.
And that’s the view from here in ‘The Middle’ 🙂
I read posts from the ‘left’- BTD at TalkLeft, and the journOlists – the Politico hit piece on Evan Bayh today and I think, wow they are So Far Away From Me. I think they will continue to be shocked! and amazed! and astounded! as the Dems are swept out of power. It is clear to everyone but those in the bubble or on the left that the country is saying N-O to the Obama Agenda all down the line.
The Democratic Party is So Far Away from the Middle. Since America IS The Middle we will have to remove them at the ballot box again. My Generation’s (X)turn to be a ‘Reagan Democrat’ is it, and save the country from the worst proclivities of the farleft neoprogressive agenda? Okay I’m down with that.
I get so tired when I have to explain
When you’re so far away from me
See you’ve been in the sun and I’ve been in the rain
And you’re so far away from me
‘The Middle’ review by CC2K here
The Middle on ABC is fabulous and spot on from where I live, perhaps the Beltway spinners should make it required viewing so they can Get A Grip and stop making fools of themselves in print and on screen daily with their analysis and punditry which could not be more out of touch with mainstream Americans and our daily lives, our hopes, dreams, aspirations, our Maslowian Hierarchy of Needs as it were, lol, would that make it through their pretentious skulls? We want jobs, opportunity today means Get Out of the Way of our economy DC!
This leadership and media sold us a Brand as a candidate, mired us in massive government spending and associated debt, created rafts of new government employees and red tape with minimal results. And they are appalled that we are taking the keys away after they drove us into a ditch in record time. Imagine spending a trillion dollars in your first year to ‘create or save jobs’ and then forecasting a creation rate of 95,000 jobs a month and that is WITH a million Census workers?! And they want what, a statue? A medal? A frakkin Nobel Prize. Oh yeah.
With all that money they spent and printed surely they could BUY A CLUE. GOOOH.
