Pet Republicans: TP impatience is unbecoming

Day after day I watch what is happening in the Magical Pixie Dust Realm of the Beltway Republican. I ask myself, how can people with college degrees be that stupid? [I know, I know…. college….] Seriously, who keeps these people from putting their underwear on outside their pants?

In episode 21,598,723 of Establishment Repubs Are Stupid, Mike Barone (brilliant number-cruncher, room temp IQ as an analyst] brings the hammer down on those pesky Tea Partiers who impatiently expected that a Tea-Party-driven nation-wide electoral butt-stomping that included a net +67 in the House would actually…… make a difference in Washington.

They believe, reasonably, that their victory represented a repudiation of the vast expansion of government by the Obama Democrats. They want to see those policies reversed, and pronto. And if the dilatory Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the all-campaign-no-governance President Obama want a confrontation, so much the better. Such impatience is unbecoming in those who call themselves “constitutional conservatives.”

Unbecoming? Really? I can see where the tea-and-crumpets crowd might see it that way. No reason to get in a lather here. The Republic is not worth saving if you might break a nail, or get a hair out of place. God forbid you might actually get irked. Or miffed. Or even peeved. Can’t have that. Father of our Constitution James Madison would probably have a whole BF if Republicans couldn’t stick to the “my friends across the aisle” script.

We can’t have that.

E Pluribus Unum
The weapons had evolved, but our orders remained the same: Hunt them down and kill them off, one by one. A most successful campaign. Perhaps too successful. For those like me, a Death Dealer, this signaled the end of an era. Like the weapons of the previous century, we, too, would become obsolete. Pity, because I lived for it.

  1. Barone’s statement that impatience is unbecoming is definitely a loser thing to say. I wrote along the same lines as Barone’s piece with the major difference that I encourage the conservative to make 2012 a greater victory than 2010.

    The only ones who might agree with his statement are those in the DC cocktail circuit that Barone’s wanting an invite from.

    • I know, Pil, yours was a message of “hang in there, don’t be discouraged, if we keep at this we can eventually turn it”.

      Barone’s was a message of “shut up and sit down, peasants! That’s not how things get done around here.”

      Sometimes presentation counts for alot 🙂

  2. Barone gives another clue, though he would probably bristle at the suggestion, when he says “The all-campaign-no-governance Obama.” Sure, he mocks Obama, but what makes him think we have a burning desire to be….governed? And Obama is indeed governing, through his surrogates in the Cabinet, the “czars” and through the issuance of executive orders and edicts relayed to him through his Blackberry. Governance, what little of it we need, is to be done by the Congress – “Of, By and For”. All the President needs to do is faithfully execute, be a role model and run a foreign policy favorable to America.
