Do Democrats Lack a Conscience?

If only a White House reporter would ask Barack Obama this one question: "How do you look in the mirror every day?" As a majority of Americans watch in horror at the Democrats consciously driving the country on a collision course with disaster, I have become quite cynical about whether Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and the rest of the Democratic aristocracy have consciences -- and if so, how they live with themselves.

It is not just the dichotomy of Obama's words versus his lifestyle that bear out the hypocrisy of his character and his soul (or lack thereof). It is the arrogance on display since the day he was inaugurated that is most astounding. It is the self-entitlement, the "I won," the belief that "the big difference here and in '94 was you got me," and the egocentric narcissism that is not only disgusting to watch, but has additionally resulted in policies detrimental to America.

This conceit is what is driving Obama, his staff, and the Democrats in Congress to rule as dictators rather than as democratically elected leaders. And it will be the ruination of the nation if they are not all booted out as soon as possible.

The shocking steps the Democrats took to pass health care legislation prior to Scott Brown's election are historic. The corruption, lies, and concealment were not politics as usual; they were politics of the worst kind. To what can we attribute the number of hours dedicated to the drafting and passage of a health care bill, the secrecy under which it had been drafted, the partisanship which had closed out any Republican input, and the name-calling and vehemence that pervaded the process?

The only logical conclusion is that the Democratic leadership has completely lost its mind with greed and self-grandiosity to the point that its members are ignoring their constitutional oaths of office, ignoring their role in protecting the nation, and ignoring their constituencies. Democrats are either electing to be thrown under the bus or are hanging on by a thread in order to fulfill the will of the Obama/Pelosi/Reid triumvirate while completely ignoring the will of the people who elected them to office. They have gotten their hands dirty with backroom deals, bribes, and discriminating provisions in order to get something -- anything -- passed, just so Obama's ego could be fed with one more faux accomplishment. And they still turned up empty.

While the mainstream media obediently ignore the seamy acts of the Democrats, the citizens of this country thankfully have woken up to the harsh reality that they have elected rogue rulers. It is bad enough that one MS-NBC host publicly stated that he would cheat and commit voter fraud just to "keep the bastards out." It is even worse to read a mass e-mail from the senior senator from New York, Chuck Schumer, in which he reduced himself to the level of a sniggering teenager, calling Republican candidate Scott Brown a "far right tea bagger."

Yet, despite the devastating loss in Massachusetts, which clearly should have presented a wake-up call to these bullies, Dick Morris recently reported that "[h]ighly informed sources on Capitol Hill have revealed to me details of the Democratic plan to sneak Obamacare through Congress, despite collapsing public approval for healthcare 'reform' and disintegrating congressional support in the wake of Republican Scott Brown's victory in Massachusetts."

Prior to the Massachusetts revolt, Barney Frank proclaimed that "God didn't create the filibuster," suggesting that the Senate rules need to be amended in order to pass Obamacare. And as analyzed in an AT article last week, Frank was not alone, as many on the left, joining this chorus, continue to ignore the will of the people they were elected to represent -- not to mention the intent of the Framers.

To make mtters worse, Nancy Pelosi, Queen of the House, with neither conscience nor soul, promised, "We will have health care one way or another." Democrats have contemplated just about every option short of walking over to the National Archives building and burning the Constitution.

While the politically correct Democrats argue that waterboarding terrorists is unconstitutional and anti-American despite the fact that it inflicts no injury and has been proven to save countless American lives, those same individuals continue to torture Americans with their broken promises, exorbitant spending sprees, disregard for the interests of the nation, and threats and intimidation of those who do not fall in line.

Many have attempted to explain away the policies of the Democrats by attributing their actions to a sense of elitism and their belief that they know what is best for the country even if the voters do not. Obama even said as much when justifying the loss of the Massachusetts Senate seat. However, after one year of full control of both the executive and legislative branches of government, the Democrats have proven to care about one thing, and it is not what is in the best interests of American citizens. It is power, pure and simple.

While the Democrats proceed with their anti-American and disingenuous policies based on a pompous belief that they were given a mandate to gut the Constitution and their insatiable hunger to win at all costs and ensure their control of the government for years to come, Americans have awoken to the reality of a future unimpeded by the checks and balances designed by the Founding Fathers. This country was created specifically upon a rejection of unbridled power. The founders of this great bastion of freedom understood that "power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Obama campaigned on promises to break from politics as usual. And the electorate bought it lock, stock, and barrel. They believed him when he promised transparency and bipartisanship, health care debates aired on C-SPAN, and no new taxes on people earning less than $250,000. With a year of broken promises, disdain for hardworking Americans, and pure greed, how is it that 47% of Americans still support this guy? It is time for those who can no longer use the Koolaid buzz as their excuse for blind support of a president devoid of conscience to take a look in the mirror. Unlike the anointed One, who adores his own reflection, we can only imagine what they will find staring back.
