#rsrh Watching the Left Flail, 08/20/2011.

This is merely an idle observation on a lovely Saturday August afternoon, so no links: I just wanted to mention that there is something deeply entertaining about watching half the Establishment Left try to explain that the President doesn’t really have the power to do anything about the economy, so why are people freaking out when he goes on vacation anyway?

It’s entertaining for four reasons:

  1. The same people screamed about Bush’s vacation, and were happy to blame him for everything under the sun;
  2. Bush actually managed to accomplish things, despite the Republicans only enjoying full control of Congress from January 2003 to December 2006 (and losing all control after that);
  3. Between January 2009 and December 2010 Barack Obama and his Democratic party had a Congressional majority that Republicans could only dream of.  Which they then proceeded to utterly waste.
  4. Best of all?  Their beloved man-god whines about it so.

It really is a lovely day out, you know.  Although I’ve been told that that storm clouds are on the horizon…

  • I love this observation…because I see it too. Twitter for the past day or two has been full of tweets about defending Obama. There is no logical argument…just pleas for more time and patience. All that is left of the Hope and Change dream is a daydream…and the only ones left who believe in it are those who are deeply invested in making sure the handouts keep coming from the Federal government.
    Time for tough love…the Tea Party will tame the beast and restore government to its rightful place in society, as a servant to the People…not its master.

    Well, passing a legislative time bomb set to destroy the private medical insurance business isn’t exactly nothing… It’s not a good thing, but it’s not nothing.

    It’s not a good thing, but it’s not nothing. Well, it is considered a good thing if you’re a government dependent that thinks it’s Unfair that you have to get a job and pay for things. 🙂
