On Up with Chris Hayes this morning Chris and his guests made my point from yesterday, that Haye's program is a showcase for the New Statists. One by one the guests showed their hands, starting with one lady who was once a part of some conservative-women's group but is now an independent fighting for women's issues. She said she's a die-hard Obama fan, so I'm sure her conservative principles were really strong before. Regarding the presidential election, she said she will no longer vote for party but whomever can do something for her. Another lady, Goldie something or other, said that she votes for whomever will be best for her interests and her community's interests. The McWhorter fellow said that every 30 or 40 years reason has a say and great things get done, like the New Deal and the Great Society. Ex-congress person Cohen didn't say much that was intelligent, but like a bobble-head doll he agreed with the New Statists, because he wants to be invited back -- who else but Hayes is inviting him to be a guest? Each guest operates from the mindset that their problems should be solved by government, and that voting means picking the candidates who will do something for you personally. Vote for the Biggest Daddy in a Big Daddy government.
They tried to continue to frame the current controversy regarding Obamacare mandates as a Republican war against women, and they had Limbaugh's "slut" comments as a weapon, because everyone knows Limbaugh controls the Republican Party. Limbaugh has apologized for the use of "slut", but this is not stopping the onslaught. No one brought up the Left's attacks on Sarah Palin, or Bill Maher's continous attacks on everyone on the Right, men and women, using the most offensive language possible. Media and Democrats are milking this issue with hypocrisy, with Obama even calling Fluke to make sure she's allright. This is the silliest crap I've witnessed in a long time. It will not erase the reality of high gas prices, Obamacare's rights violating mandates, high unemployment, Iran and the European crisis, but it's a diversion to give Democrats a little breathing room to think of another diversion. Republicans have a lot of problems, and much of what Republicans believe in I don't, but the sorry, deceptive state of the Democrat Party is such an insult to intelligence and honesty, it's terribly offensive.
