Before we get to today’s subject, I want to talk a bit about the Republican dog fights that are billed as being debates. In my opinion, the media moderators are manipulating the candidates into pissing contests to create a good show for their television audiences. And, for the most part the candidates are going along and playing their parts. This, my friends, is not helping the image of the Republican Party at all. Last night, I thought Newt Gingrich, the most adult person on that stage, was absolutely right in his comment at the very end about the debate format and his comment to the other candidates that “bickering is not the way to the White House”.
Okay. On to today’s subject.
The Occupy Wall Street protests should not be taken lightly only because much of what see are some pretty dim bulbs babbling about what they want. These protestors are being manipulated by our Community Organizer in Chief and his closest supporters like the SEIU and people like Van Johnson. As I pointed in my post The Class Warfare President is Marshalling His Troops, this is how Obama plans to get reelected. I fear we will see in the coming weeks and months that these, more or less peaceful protestors are going morph into violent mobs. It is Obama’s plan to tie all this angst to the tail of the Republican elephant.This is how trained community organizers work. I have to wonder what they have planned for the Republican National Convention next year.
I am not alone in seeing the potential danger for the GOP if they fail to appropriately respond to Obama’s challenge. Here are some snips from an excellent article by Tammy Bruce at Newsmax.com:
As one month of “Occupy Wall Street” passes, it’s fascinating how media and politicians alike, with one or two exceptions, have managed a remarkable suspension of disbelief when it comes to the organized source of these open-air leftist animal houses.
These are not protests against Wall Street, they’re protests for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign and are organized and directed by a number of his campaign supporting organizations, including one of his favorite — the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). It is also an indication of a virtual meltdown of
the left, but could succeed if the GOP continues to fumble the ball in response.
Radical SEIU union organizer Stephen Lerner has been discussing “occupy”
plans at various events, publicly laying out their tactics and discussing the overall agenda.
Here’s how it’s supposed to work: Obama knows he’s failed, causing one disaster after another. He cannot run on his record, he can’t even have it as an issue.
He needs to be an innocent bystander as he stands right next to the fire he created.
He accomplishes this by doing what leftists do best — creating a shiny false crisis, a straw man, to be the new fall guy for the disastrous economic situation his failed policies and contempt for this nation have delivered to each of our front doors.
The fantasy of this false crisis is to get both “rich bankers” and Republicans blamed for a disaster entirely of Obama’s making.
All of this is now taking place, with Obama praising the mob, and his chief adviser David Axelrod directly attaching Republican candidates to the new enemy.
Ms. Bruce goes on to say how recently House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor, called the protestors a mob, which is exactly what they are; a Obama mob. But, he then, a week later, walked back his comment saying that Republicans agree there is “too much income disparity.” Is that how our Republican leadership should be responding to this situation? I don’t think so.
Our Republican leaders are going to get no help from the MSM, at least not voluntarily. They need to call press conferences as often as necessary to pin the Democrat’s tale tail on the Donkey where it belongs .
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
