Day 1268 – He Hopes You Fail

April 25, 2012

It’s panic time in the House of the Tingling Leg. I watched the beginning of MSNBC’s Hardball where Chris Matthews inserted his tirade into the introduction of the show tonight. His take of the impressive speech Mitt Romney gave last night was that Republicans are for the people who do well and Democrats are for those who didn’t make it. Not only that, but Romney and Republicans want the people who haven’t made it to look up to the people who made it. For a split second, I was thinking about the absurdity of his interpretation. Then I realized Tweety was telling the truth. You are damn right that Republicans are for the successful. We want people to succeed. Matthews was right about Democrats, too. The party of Obama not only embraces the failures, but requires their continued failure. Romney can survive everyone being successful, Obama cannot.

Years ago, I saw a flag burning idiot win that right in court after being arrested. When asked about the verdict, he continued to bitch about the country. I learned that day liberals are never happy, at least about their politics. They come from a perspective that America is fundamentally flawed and sweeping change is needed to fix it. Conservatives like this country the way it is, and only want to fix problems, not remake the system. Everything about Obama is fundamental change. The only thing he prioritized during a brief Democratic majority was a health insurance bill that will fundamentally transform most people’s insurance plans and cost untold billions to pay for a new system where doctors don’t get paid as much and DMV-style health care will be the only affordable option for many.

Most people in this country can still find a job that pays for their living expenses. Government programs like student loans increase the number of students and decrease the percentage of graduates who find a job using their degree. Even people with enormous medical bills will still come out of a crisis with their lives. This country works, but Obama is doing everything he can to gum up the works. A Democratic Congress could have voted to raise taxes on the rich in 2010 but chose not to. When they don’t have the power anymore, they claim those tax increases will solve all their ills. The rich as a group are not evil. If an individual does wrong, that’s what the government is for. If they donate to Obama, that’s what his fundraisers are for. I refuse to accept that failure is the default option in America. I will not look down at businessmen with disdain. President has a new hope for 2012. If you’re poor, you’d better hope for a check. It’s the only option in Obama’s America.
