Liberals' Last Stand: Americans are Stupid

Alas, it wasn’t supposed to be like this. We should have been carried away to a liberal utopia amid billowing clouds of fluffy hope and change by now...

It’s the damned people...
Others are aiming their sound and fury at the American people. According to Maureen Dowd, “Obama is the head of the dysfunctional family of America — a rational man running a most irrational nation, a high-minded man in a low-minded age.

The country is having some weird mass nervous breakdown.” Jonathan Alter argues that the American people “aren’t rationally aligning belief and action; they’re tempted to lose their spleens in the polling place without fully grasping the consequences.” And Slate’s Jacob Weisberg has written that “the biggest culprit in our current predicament” is the “childishness, ignorance, and growing incoherence of the public at large.” (Peter Wehner - Contentions)
Wehner goes on to list the hobgoblins that inhabit the fevered imagings of the New York Times and MSNBC crowd, bogeymen such as the founding fathers, Glenn Beck, and Vast Righwing Conspiracies.

For liberals crying that Wehner is mischaracterizing them, along comes leftwing wackadoo Michael Tomasky to corroborate Wehner’s findings...
I expected some anti-Obama backlash. I never thought his election meant we'd "moved beyond race" or the rest of that nonsense. I anticipated that a segment of the population would simply be pissed off that he was in the White House. But I really didn't think it would be like this.

I did not expect to see this much hatred, this depth of conviction that the president of the United States is an enemy of his own country, this intensity of bigotry directed at American Muslims, this degree of belief in obvious and poisonous lies.

And it's not isolated. At all. About 30% of Americans call themselves tea-party supporters. Given that the tea party movement is almost all white, and that the country is about 70% white, this means that around 43% of white Americans subscribe to this basic view. That's nearly half.
Oh boo hoo! Cry us a liberal river of tears, Michael. We’re racist because we won’t stand idly by while red statists flush our nation down the toilet? 100 years of progressivism brought us here, and you are stupid enough to cry for more.  Good thing Tomasky blogs at "Comment is Free."  Only the foolish would pay for such twaddle.

We’re spoiled brats, according to Obama hopium smoker Eugene Robinson.
Americans are in a mood to hold their breath until they turn blue. Voters appear to be so fed up with the Democrats that they're ready to toss them out in favor of the Republicans -- for whom, according to those same polls, the nation has even greater contempt. This isn't an "electoral wave," it's a temper tantrum.
There we are America! The problem is we are too stupid to see that the cure for overspending and government failure is more spending and more government.

This is the problem with progressivism: It’s “my way or the highway” with these people. If you don’t start goosestepping you’re a racist moron. Do they really think insulting half the country is a winning strategy?

The left has another problem: If you promise people all that stuff, you better deliver; the dependent class is still waiting with their hands out. You can’t eat hope and you can’t feed your family with Obama’s change. Of course, they’ve been promising but not delivering for decades. And the things they have delivered are bankrupting the country. Progressives are trapped rats, and all they have left is to lash out at patriotic Americans.

Nice Post Silver. And all must think we'll be stupid at the ballot box this Nov. I have seen some of the ads the liberal are running and if you didn't know they were liberals, you'd think they were conservatives. They will say anything just to get elected. Some even use Tea Party talking points in them. But once in, they'll fall right back in line with Obama/Pelosi/Reid

One of the major differences between liberals and conservatives is that liberals believe the government is America and the people are its pawns. Conservatives believe the people are America and that the government works for them.

RINOS have confused themselves into thinking conservatives are right in principle but liberals are right in practice.

The left is screeching and hurling personal attacks in the direction of any who oppose Obama.

Not sure that this screeching will work very well -- except to piss off WE THE PEOPLE even more.
