To begin with a quote:
Conservative opponents have criticized Obama’s new administration, saying it has pushed the country toward socialism and that his $787 billion economic stimulus package will do little to revive the struggling economy.
From adopting the lard arse Limbaugh to regurgitating the old ‘socialist’ word what more do the Republicans have?
Obama is saying that the pillars of the recovery will be in place this year. That’s fine by me, but I think he is a little way off unless he agrees that the real recovery will start around August/September. Yet – that is by the end of the year. I also believe that jobs will be created sooner than that and companies will be hiring again.
So if the American people want to be free, in Limbaugh’s sense, does that then mean that they would become socialist? What you have to first do is simplify that with a question – what do the GOLP* believe in? What is their mantra other than what got the US into this mess in the first place? What is it – exactly?
The American people spoke and said they want a new direction – one that I feel Obama is giving them – yet, we still see that the GOLP are carping on about the same dead, defunct policies of the last administration. They are a laughing stock.
Whooping it up, telling the world they are not dead – well at least Conservatism isn’t – that they will come back from the disaster that is/will be an Obama presidency, that they are willing to govern.
All I can say to them on that score, even if Obama fails, which he won’t – I can actually see the majority of Americans going further to the left than adopting the Republican party as it stands now.
As it stands now, in my view, is more right than Bush took it. In the GOLP now even Reagan would seem a lefty!
