Don't Undo That Voodoo That I Do

Now He's Worried
Hope. Change. Progress...these were the things that Barack Obama promised in his run to the White House, and unfortunately, many believed him. After two years in office, that herd has thinned considerably, although there are still some left who cling to the lie.

As for Obama himself, he is still running around insisting that his policies are working, that we're moving in the right direction, and we've come a long way out of that proverbial ditch that George W. Bush drove us into. Even the former Speaker of the House was out there the other day continuing to blame Bush. Just as the Left tries to  erase or revise history - which would negate our ability to learn from it - so have they become the victims of their own agenda.

But it's worse than that; they have also suffered severe short-term memory loss in that the recent electoral massacre - which ushered in a sea-change of Congressional members - was a clear message that the majority of Americans don't want to take the Democrats' cod liver oil. Yet, just like the nanny-minded parental units they believe themselves to be, they insist on holding our mouths open in an effort to get us to accept the offending liquid.

The message in Obama's latest weekly radio address was a hubristic warning to the new Republican majority not to "refight the battles of the past two years that distract us from the hard work of moving our economy forward." In other words, he's trying to tell the Republicans not to undo his handiwork, even though the reason they are there in the first place is because the people wanted them to go there and undo Obama's disastrous policies. It's not far from your mother warning you not to induce vomiting after she fed your child poison.

There is an odd penchant on the part of Democrats to invoke the will of the majority only when it suits their purposes. But when they have an agenda they deem fair and just, they don't care a whit about the will of the majority. Remember how the Democrats railed on about the 2000 election of George W. Bush because the majority of people voted for him, despite the law of the Electoral College? In their minds it was advantage, majority. But when the people vote in favor of a proposition in California, a Liberal judge invalidates the legal ballot.

So now Obama wants to declare the past set in concrete, his work unalterable, and for the new Republican Congress to progress forward, not to be concerned with the damage he has already wrought. That's done, he declares, let's move on to the next item.

Not so fast, Sir. You can't just go setting bombs and expect that decent people won't snuff out the fuses.
