If Only Democrats Used Their Rhetoric to Guide their Governing

In the course of the debate on health care, we should bear in mind these three public comments made by the two Democrats holding two of the (three) highest constitutional offices in the United States of America.

First, the President:

But there is no doubt that we’ve been living beyond our means and we’re going to have to make some adjustments.

Now, what I’ve done throughout this campaign is to propose a net spending cut.

Third Presidential Debate, October 15, 2008

UPS and FedEx are doing just fine . . . . it’s the Post Office that’s always having problems.

Portsmouth, New Hampshire, August 11, 2009

Now, the Speaker of the House:

The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history.

  1. The Dhimmicrats are born liars. Why do people vote to put them into power?

  2. People vote them into power because people are selfish, and the Demonrats promise to take things away from other people and give them to them.

    Andrew Jackson was a founder of the Demonrat Party; his platform consisted of driving Indians off their lands and giving them to white settlers.

    In the antebellum South, Demonrats stole the freedom and labor of negro slaves and gave it to white landowners.

    Under the Jim Crow South, Demonrats kept the black man down, again to the benefit of whitey.

    The modern Demonrat party stand for taking money away from people who earn it, and showering it on people who don’t.

    If you love freedom, you become a conservative; if you want the state to take things away from other people and give them to you, you’re a Democrat.

    All of liberalism is based on selfishness.

  3. ‘Why do people vote to put them into power?”

    Because, for all their faults, their infinitly better than the alternative.
    And the people have very recent experinece that bears that out.

  5. From ABC’s Jake Tapper:

    The federal deficit increased by $180 billion in July alone.

    Rising to a record $1.27 trillion already, the deficit is heading towards $2 trillion by the end of the fiscal year.

    The current total U.S. national debt is $11,666,485,985,008.

    Your share is $37,982.

    Increasingly, citizens at town hall meetings are expressing concern over the government’s ability to pay for health care reform without adding to the deficit.

    But not Tardo and stupidbutt… they’re all “Yeeee-haw, Socialized Health Care! Spend, Baby Spend!”

  6. And again, Tano spouts off with nothing to back it up.

    but hey, that’s normal when you refuse to face facts that you can’t refute

  7. Tano–seems you’re just using the space provided by this conservative blog to vent against Republicans and conservatives.

    IF you want to know what the people put Democrats in power, check the first comment from Obama quoted above. Check what Nancy Pelosi said about honesty and openness.

    Now, ask yourself why they’re not governing consistently with that rhetoric (the point of the post to which you attach your comment).

    Thanks,

    Ah, so they *do* have faults? Just to show that you can actually be reasonable, Tano, would you care to list out the faults of the Democrats in your own words? You know, just to show you’re not being disingenuous here? That is, assuming you can list any faults excluding “They’re not liberal enough.”

  9. Since Tardo can not honestly answer the question, I will.

    The Demonrats know if they were honest about their real agenda, they would lose everywhere except a few deep-blue loony bins along the coast. They can’t tell the voters they want more taxation, bigger governments, unlimited abortion access, Draconian environmental laws, gun prohibition, and the Treasury put at the disposal of special interest groups (labor unions).

    They have to lie to get into office, they have to continue lying about what their agenda is once in office (their rhetoric contradicting their legislation), and they have to have a compliant media covering their lies for them.

    The American people do not want what the leftist elites want, so the have to lie about their objectives. Also, they foist as much responsibility as possible off on left-wing activist judges and unelected bureaucrats, who don’t have to answer to the people.

  10. BTW, it looks like the Finance Committee is going to drop the Death Panels from the ObamaCare bill. Score one for Sarah Palin!

  11. “Because, for all their faults, they’re infinitely better than the alternative.”

    I have voted for one democrat, Boyle when I lived in Iowa, in my entire life–I’m 48 now– and I was extremely sorry I did that one. I thought maybe he could represent by the law, but what he said and what he did was two different things. If you’re going to talk to the talk, you better walk the walk. I don’t always agree with republicans on all things as I consider myself libertarian; however, I find that the republicans walk their talk more often than the other side does.

    Actually, it doesnt!

    Having recent experience under Republicans and current governance by Democrats, Americans now trust Republicans more than Democrats on Health Care, the Economy, Education, National Security, Abortion, Social Security, Taxes, and Immigration.

    In addition, Republicans lead Democrats on the generic preference poll for congress in 2010. And a 52% majority now disapprove of Obama.

    At least one strategist is predicting Republicans pick up 20-50 seats. And history shows those predictions usually underestimate Republicans.

    By the way, those polls are all from the pollster who had the most accurate results in the 2008 election.

  13. Elephant,

    Rasmussen did NOT have the most accurate polls in 2008. THey werent bad, but they were within the pack.

    And their daily tracking poll, and quesiton polls are done with a different methodolgy than their candidate polls.

    I would encourage you to investigate this. During the campaign, Ras polls were very much in line with every other pollsters polls. THats why they did well in the end.
    But their daily approval polls are a complete joke – for the last 8 years they were consistently 5-7 points higher than any other polling firm. Then suddenly this January, they started coming in 7-10 points lower than any other polling firm.
    Go check out Pollster,com where they plot every approval poll done, and label the dots. Ras is a complete outlier.
    He is a total republican hack pollster. Beleive him at your peril

  14. Sorry Tardo,

    According to a study done by Fordham University of 2008 polling, I am right and you are a tard.
