Thanks To BO!

RealClearPolitics - The Public Has Spoken on ObamaCare

By any measure, the upset in MA is one of the grandest political coups in US history. To have John Edwards admit to fathering a love-child in the same week makes one wonder if the Kennedy Foundation admitting that he murdered Mary Jo Kopechne is soon to follow. It really ISN'T "The Kennedy Seat", it belongs to the people of MA.

This is a great paragraph from Will:
With one piece of legislation, Obama and his congressional allies have done in one year what it took President Lyndon Johnson and his allies two years to do in 1965 and 1966 -- revive conservatism. Today conservatism is rising on the stepping stones of liberal excesses.
With just one year in power, BO and his total control of Congress has managed to awake the 40% of Americans that have always identified themselves as conservative from their stupor. A year ago, this seemed impossible, but while the capacity of the human race for the positive is sadly limited, the capacity for arrogance, narcissism, mendacity, elitism, and incompetence is completely unbounded. BO, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have just proven the known yet again.

The following paragraph from George summarizes my thoughts far better than I am able. One of the very essences of modern "liberalism" is that; "The masses are too stupid to know what is best for them, they ought to be thankful we brilliant liberals are here to take care of them". Modern liberalism has left behind the very core of what makes this country special. The faith that the intelligence, hard work and common sense of the MANY exceeds the supposed brilliance of the few by a WIDE margin! God Bless the America of the COMMON People! Together, we can be far more UNcommon and even EXCEPTIONAL -- with no need for BO to apologize for us to anyone!
The 2008 elections gave liberals the curse of opportunity, and they have used it to reveal themselves ruinously. The protracted health care debacle has highlighted this fact: Some liberals consider the legislation's unpopularity a reason to redouble their efforts to inflict it on Americans who, such liberals think, are too benighted to understand that their betters know best. The essence of contemporary liberalism is the illiberal conviction that Americans, in their comprehensive incompetence, need minute supervision by government, which liberals believe exists to spare citizens the torture of thinking and choosing.
