A Day that will live in Idiocy
They really should know better than to spout stuff like this. Last night, a Democrat mouthpiece on Hannity compared the Speaker's refusal of Obama's address to Congress on the same night as the Republican debates as comparable to denying FDR the opportunity to address a joint session of Congress following Pearl Harbor.
Aside from the well-deserved ridicule such a comparison begs, the sheer audacity of such a ploy would require some degree of admiration were it not so monumentally arrogant. Desperation breeds audacity and audacity is very often correctly viewed as arrogance. Arrogance is also far too often the handmaiden of incompetence. With the fumbling, bumbling, continued crumbling of the Obama administration, the world is bearing witness to just about every manifestation of arrogance an administration can employ in its desperation to survive, arrogance equaled only by the bold ineptitude with which it is employed.
This latest, ill-advised attempt to upstage the Republicans by late-calling for a presidential address of a joint session of Congress on the same night as a long-planned Republican debate doesn't smack of Pearl Harbor so much as Vineyard Harbor where it took a veritable Act of God to dislodge our chief executive and force his return to that Dismal Swamp of Democratic Despair, better known as the White House.
But (and haven't there been an increasing number of those buts lately with this administration?) all those multi-degreed, academic super-achievers advising The One, didn't reckon on a Speaker of the House exercising his prerogative to say, "Nope." And that's really all it takes for Arrogance to run smack-dab, face-first and head-on into Reality.
No, this ain't Pearl Harbor and we're not gonna let you get away with your silly political air raids. And guess who comes out looking torpedoed and who emerges as the unsinkables? I swear, if they had let me in the White House Situation Room, I couldn't possibly have screwed this up any better in favor of Republicans. Who was it said, "When your opponent 's self-destructing, get the hell out of his way"? Can't recall, but it's good advice for Republicans right now. Of course, if you see one toe left on a Democrat's foot, you just might wanta hand him a gun. What is becoming abundantly clear is that these clowns are just as adept at politics as they are at macro-economics. Cancel the choreography and take away the teleprompter, what do you have? How about an empty suit advised by an empty suite of academics?
O.K. Now everyone hold their breath to hear what a grand new economic plan the Teleprompter of the United States of America will divulge next week.
