We’re officially living in a topsy-turvy, logic-less mess of a world. And that especially seems true in the traditional Western sections of the globe right now.
Over in Europe, they’re protesting government spending cuts. Apparently they’ve adopted the Loreal slogan – at least of a few years back – of being “worth it,” everything else be damned.
Problem is, they seem much more focused on their supposed worth and rights, and far less on their countries’ futures, their children’s futures, or even their own. After all, let’s face it: The traditional economic powers of the twentieth century are falling fast, while China rises on its odd mix of oppression and capitalism.
Honestly, I don’t think that China can really pull it off long-term until it gives its people a bit more respect, but the communist nation is going for the gold all the same, pulling ahead at an often-frightening pace.
Meanwhile, France and England specifically, are busy pushing backwards, as their entitled citizens – a breed their governments foolishly bred for years now – yell loud and long in favor of selfish ruin.
Germany Doesn’t Get It Either
Move Eastward from England and North East from France, and you don’t find much more intelligence. For proof of that, just check out Germany’s Spiegel Online International, which features the extremely sheltered view that:
“Barack Obama is not a bad president. He is extremely eloquent, sharp-witted, and has certainly not lost any of his talent since moving into the Oval Office. Members of his staff say he still listens to what people say. A senator who once lost an election to Obama says the president demands dissenting opinions and that he's reliable, funny and works best under pressure.
“Nor is he a weak president. He has begun withdrawing American troops from Iraq. He has been able to strengthen his alliances. And he has tackled the global economic crisis with an $800 billion stimulus package and a reform of the financial markets. His education policies target performance and aim to improve the disastrously under-resourced public school system. Millions of Americans have been dreaming of healthcare reform for decades. Bill Clinton failed to get it passed. Barack Obama succeeded.
“Why then does it appear as if the American people would prefer to bring about a political stalemate between the White House and the two chambers of Congress, and thus ensure their own ungovernability, rather than giving the president a little more time? Why is the United States again leaning toward the kind of Republicans who have little to offer but tax cuts and who left Obama with a legacy of two wars and an economic crisis?”
“Not a bad president?” Not “a weak president?” This is the man who led the country into double-digit unemployment numbers and can’t bring us back down even close to 9%. This is also the man who goes around whining about what he “inherited” 24-7, goes on copious amounts of vacation, and bows to foreign leaders. This is also the man who lets unfriendly countries like Russia and Iran walk all over us, along with terrorist suspects.
Need I go on? Because I certainly can.
In short, we’ve already given him nearly two years, two years of failed promises, two years of accusations and two years of blatantly ignoring us. That is why we’d prefer “political stalemate” over “giving the president a little more time.”
Meghan McCain, Pampered Twit Extraordinaire
Of course, there is no shortage of really dumb people in the United States. Let’s start out with the ever-clueless and annoying Meghan McCain. Honestly, I’m ashamed that she shares my political party, my gender and my general age group. The silly harpy is a disgrace to intelligent thought.
Appearing on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, she just had to express her opinion on Delaware GOP Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell, calling her “a nut job.”
“Christine O’Donnell is making a mockery of running for public office,” she said, claiming that her fellow Republican’s lack of any “real history [and]… real success in any kind of business” sends a harmful message to her generation: that “one day, you can just wake up and run for Senate, no matter how [little] experience you have.”
Great point hon! Because all of the so-called “experienced” people in Washington are doing such a great job.
Not done ripping her party right along with the best of the mainstream media, McCain continued, “It scares me for a lot of reasons, and I just know in my group of friends, it just turns people off, because she’s seen as a nut job.”
Here’s my question for the self-involved young woman who enjoys hearing the sound of her own voice: Has she actually watched or listened to anything O’Donnell has said, other than her “not a witch” ad?
Because other the general name calling, I haven’t really seen much negative press on O’Donnell after her recent debate with her opponent, Democrat Chris Coons. Even the New York Times could only really bash her on her supposed “Sarah Palin moment,” when she couldn’t come up with a recent Supreme Court case that she disagreed with.
Even CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer couldn’t think of anything better than Roe v. Wade. And, as O'Donnell pointed out, the question was for a recent decision. So Blitzer is even dumber than she supposedly is. Not to mention that the question was an easy handout for Coons, who quickly jumped on the recent court decision to allow corporations to fund political campaigns.
I wonder if he could cite another one?
Other than that, from what I heard O’Donnell say, she seemed strong to me. Maybe Little Miss Nitwit can try reading something other than the mainstream, horribly biased, mainstream media.
And please McCain. Shut up!
