Libya? Obama's a hero. That's what the MSM will tell the people. Perhaps less than half will believe it, perhaps not. Norman Rockwell paints your mother. Jackson Pollock paints your mother.
Many of our fellow Americans would automatically buy the Pollock portrait. Some, even, because they like it! Others because it's "the right thing to do," like voting for a candidate BECAUSE he is "black."
You bet Victor Hansen Davis? OK. They raise you Oprah Winfrey. The GOP doesn't know which way to bet. They are trying to land between two realities. Ain't gonna work. Can't.
GOP, Pick Norman Rockwell and start fighting like hell. You might get enough people on your side to save the country.
The Tea Party and Sarah Palin, IMO, are pushing a Norman Rockwell, traditional American, pro-Constitution, pro-Judaeo-Christian Western Civilization agenda.
And the dominant culture is replying, "You can't do that! It won't work! That's crazy stuff!"
It worked in the past. I think it will work in the 21st century. But there's only one way to know for sure.
I say we go "all-in". Full scale American originalist vision of this country. Push it hard. Push it fast. Steamroller the opposition. And we'll see what comes of it.
