We are so boned.
FrnakJ writes in PJ Media (which I won’t link as the left side of the page has an intrusive ad I cannot get rid of. It actually blocks text) an excellent term with this line
shiny new object of Barack Obama. The then-predicted progressive utopia ended up being a hard slog of constantly sticking up for an inept politician who was in over his head in pretty much everything.
Now, I’m not arguing with him over that statement, I agree about as much as I can.
Unfortunately, the people who agree with that sentiment are not in positions of power or in any lefty areas.
Mitch McConnel, John Boehner, McCain, Flake and the rest of the “common sense” brigade do not.
I’ve been staying with my family in upstate NY, my brother in law is a pretty smart guy, my sister as well, but they choose poorly. She actually suggested I watch the Today show because maybe I’d “learn something”. I swear she actually said that. I was too stunned to say anything except that I doubted that or something.
Everybody in my family thinks I’m a racist hater for suggesting Obama is not a good president. Seriously, I have bona fide racists in my family who are calling me a racist.
Much of America gets their news from the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCMSNBCetc. so they do not see the stuff we talk about. They see the stuff Minitrue talks about. They see when NASA says Hottest Year Ever!!!!! but don’t see it’s 1/10th of one degree and then they don’t see the correction that comes out a few days later. They don’t see that Antarctic ice is incredibly high in May, heading into the coldest time, which is July and August. So they have never seen anybody who doesn’t believe in global worming explain why they don’t believe.
When you get both sides of the debate from only one side, well, it’s not hard to be fooled.
And that’s why we’re boned.
Much of America still believes in the Dems and much of the rest depend on the Dems for their sustenance so they don’t care.
Boned again, (un)naturally.
