Obama’s “Do as I say and not as I do” world
The Norko’s have Dear Leader, part deux; America has its one and only Dear Reader.
And Dear Reader has yet to deliver a President’s Budget, the required-by-law document which is intended to serve as a point of departure for the House and the Senate to develop their own budgets, which are then reconciled and signed into law.
Although the Administration hasn’t fulfilled the legal requirement to submit a President’s Budget, here’s Obama demanding an immigration bill (one that would create more Democrat voters) as well as additional gun control legislation (remember… it’s for the children) from the Senate by next month.
(Barry: ever heard of want it bad, get it bad? Or is that the underlying idea, as it was with Obamacare?)
In the meantime, Obama slow-rolls America (and Canada) on literally (not Biden-speak, that is, literally) shovel-ready no-brainers like the Keystone XL pipeline.
And so it seems, Dear Reader’s reactionary liberalism can be compared to a song, something which changes the Shut up and sing imperative into wholly dogmatic—and predictable—territory.
The first verse of reactionary liberalism is, “It’s for your own good.” (That is, you’re too stupid to make your own decisions—homosexuality and abortions excluded—spend your own money, etc.)
The second verse of reactionary liberalism is, “It’s for the children.” (Or it could be the elderly, the teachers, the environment, the cops, the farmers, the firefighters, the military, ad infinitum. That is, liberals arguments lack facts, so they try and build an emotional appeal.)
The third verse of reactionary liberalism is, “Can’t we all just get along?” (That is, liberals want bipartisanship… if it gets them what they want.)
The bridge in the song of reactionary liberalism is, “We just want things to be ‘fair.’” (That is, liberals will determine what’s fair.)
The chorus of reactionary liberalism is, “Do as I say and not as I do.”
With alterations in key, featured instruments and vocalists, timing and tempo, etc., the same basic song can be altered and recycled as often as required.
Leadership by example? From the President, for instance? Meh. That’s for small leaders.
