The Scorpion | September 29, 2015

The story of the scorpion and the frog is actually an American variant of other Aesop’s fables. In it, a frog agrees to carry a scorpion on his back across a river after the scorpion promises not to sting him. Unfortunately, the scorpion can’t help stinging, as it is his nature, and they both drown.

I think the problem with the leadership in the Republican party is they do not understand that there is a scorpion in one Barack Hussein Obama. It is in Obama’s nature to be petty, thin-skinned and occasionally operate against his own self-interest. For example, the Sequester was a plan that could potentially impact Democratic party sacred cows, but he never thought the GOP would call his bluff on it. Obamacare was the legislation that sealed the fate against a continued Democratic majority.

If it is in someone’s nature not to negotiate when they have to give up something they want, the only response should be to force their hand. Instead, the GOP and pundits use terms likeĀ “zones” of possibility and compromise to explain why some men want to see the world burn. The sad fact is that Americans voted for an awful human being and sometimes you have to fight evil.
