Skip to comments.The Obama Steamroller: Is Resistance Futile?
Posted on 02/27/2009 9:30:47 AM PST by alex
The political reality at the moment is that regardless of the wisdom or foolishness of what is or will be proposed by the Obama administration or Congress in the next two years, it will pass. This is the consequence for the GOP of losing elections and losing them big in both 2006 and 2008....

Can a conservative be stupid enough not to understand this trivial matter?
We have not yet begun to fight!
The problem may be demographic and irreversible. If that’s the case than we really need to figure a way to take our marbles and go home. No marriage this bad would last fifteen seconds and everybody knows it.
Nation building in Afghanistan and Iraq was vital to our national security— just as it was after World War II.
A very sobering article.
Live Free Or Die.
I’ll be at the NYC Tea Party behind enemy lines tomorrow.
There are a lot of things that contributed to this. ‘Nation building’ might be one if you want to call it that. Certainly a prolonged Iraq War contributed to 2006, and to 2008 to a lesser extent. The economic crisis probably is pretty high on the list since neither Bush, McCain or anyone else seemed to want to defend the economic record of the six years of growth before that, and refused to refute the argument that deregulation and tax cuts caused it. The GOP tried to go populist and point fingers at Wall Street instead of pointing towards the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue.
Time to dissolve the union?
>Can a conservative be stupid enough not to understand this trivial matter?
I don’t want to “Conserve” the things the way they are.. .Likewise, I think the “Change” that is being pushed on is is the wrong one...
I want CHANGE for the better! More Liberties, More Freedoms, MORE JUSTICE! Righteousness! TRUTH! (Are these, or are they not, the American way?) Then, oh then, America might know peace.
Could you really be that stupid, or did you just forget the sarcasm tag?
Conservatives lost because there were no Conservatives to vote for.
Just K street liberal lite trash.
The political Left in this country must be destroyed, figuratively and literally, (exiling them to the South Pole during the middle of July comes to mind). No need to split the country in two.
The two ideologies are like oil and water, they don’t mix. One must destroy the other and soon.
Obama must be exposed before anything will matter. And by “exposed” I mean that his supporters must be DIRECTLY AND NEGATIVELY IMPACTED by his policies before it will matter. Also, they must believe it is his policies causing it.
I suspect they won’t believe it until it doesn’t matter - when those with guns and lots of stored food will be the ones on top.
Resistance is all we will have left in a few years.
No, it's because we did do that that the US was safe enough to allow the populace to vote themselves the keys to the treasury.
[By 2012, the GDP will likely be growing again, and Obama will take credit for the magnificent turnaround.]
I wouldn’t bet on it.
[Obama can pass any bill in the next 2 years (I am afraid it may be next 40+ years) because US did not stop nation building in Iraq and Afganistan in early 2005.]
Wonder what’s going to happen when Obama gets us into a quagmire in Afghanistan that he is not willing to win.
Look back and see. Conservatives were all for the war. But they wanted Hastert's head. Idiotic.
The GOP is there to draw a paycheck it seems. Nothing more, nothing less........
