Open Letter to Richard Cohen and Other Assorted Libs

Do not – Do. Not. – cry on my shoulder about this President. My sympathy level for your angst over your error is less than zero. You would have to develop an entire new numerical scale to find a figure that would adequately measure my lack of compassion for you.

Richard Cohen has discovered that his Chicago Hopeâ„¢ has the same value as a fart in a whirlwind. He bemoans the administration’s “incoherence” and “confusion”.

Still, the Obama administration has applied incoherence to confusion. It is an odd, dangerous, mix. A day into the operation, the bedraggled chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, appeared everywhere but on Animal Planet to say that the operation he himself clearly did not favor might end with the man the president said he wanted gone — a certain Col. Gaddafi — still in power. “That’s certainly, potentially, one outcome,” Mullen said on “Meet the Press.”

The change that Obama promised has settled on us all like an irritating drizzle. His ideas were untested by either age or experience. It is one thing to decry American unilateralism and quite another to await international action when time is of the essence. It is not necessary for America always to lead, but it is sometimes necessary for it to do so — and always necessary for the president to know when that moment has arrived. Obama seems not to know. He often solves problems by ignoring them.

To tell you the truth, I don’t know whether it was appropriate for Obama to go through with his trip to South America, but it sure was symbolic. Here was his country entering yet another military operation, and there was the president in Brazil. The contrast was jarring — as if he was quite literally distancing himself from the consequences of his own policy. The man supposed to be the center of it all was on the periphery.

Cry me a river. At this point, I am openly contemptuous of these liberals. It wouldn’t be so bad if they had to suffer for their stupidity alone, but their voting incompetence has consequences for 300 million people, many of whom have no choice in our representation.

Richard Cohen, and others of his ilk (like certain educated and otherwise intelligent family members of mine, who don’t have Cohen’s platform, but still are culpable as they voted alongside him for the Pres***ent.) were in a position to make a wise decision. They had access to more information than I did, and I had enough. They just chose to disregard the warning signs because they like the idea of Utopia.

Well wonderful. I like the Idea of Utopia as well. It makes a great bedtime story. But so does Cinderella. It is not the basis for a decision for the leadership of our country. Hope and Change is not a proposal or a platform, it’s a slogan. You voted for a slogan and found out that the purveyor is weak and ineffectual. He’s a charlatan, a poser.

But those of us who saw this from the beginning, who recognized that a Community Organizer who voted present more often than he voted, who had spent his entire political career running for higher office, was not a leader or suitable for the Presidency. The fact that you were too careless with your evaluation doesn’t lead me to sympathy, it leads me to contempt.

Voting is not a right, it is a responsibility. You took that responsibility carelessly and now our progeny, our military, and our economic survival are at risk. Do. Not. Cry. To. Me.

Here comes your unicorn

  1. And please copy everybody on the Journ -O-List who conspired to cover for Obama and to character assassinate anybody on the right, including bretheren in the media, who might raise questions. They are a sick and sorry lot.

  2. Just wanted to convey strong agreement with the tone and analysis of this, but what can I really add? And everytime I hear that man say the word “investment,” my stomach turns a little. We live in a strange new world where conventional logic doesn’t apply, neither does 230 yrs of US history, and seemingly conspiracy theories or worst case scenarios make the most sense in explaining this man and what happens around him. Does he really care about the middle class? Don’t think so. Is he just a one term empty suit place holder whose strings are being pulled by nefarious Marxist atheist billionaires behind the scenes? If you wanted to make a case for it, you could based on how he has behaved. Whatever specimen of political animal he is – and you and Lady P seem to have the best approaches for getting at that – the reality is he is objectively wrecking and dismantling the United States day by day, with a studied effort. Our political reaction must be guided by those facts.

    • Thx. I agree completely. It still astounds me that 52% of Americans fell for this guy. The story of the Emperor’s New Clothes was certainly based on very real human characteristics.

      Unfortunately, so was the Pied Piper.
