The REAL Lesson Dems Should Learn

I've often been struck by the fact that the Roanoke Times editorial staff is always so one-dimensional in its thinking.  Today provides a classic example.  In that House race in Pennsylvania where a successor to John Murtha was to be chosen, the Democrat won and the Republican lost.  Which leads the geniuses at the Times to conclude:
... The most telling sign Tuesday might not have been from a primary, but a special election in Pennsylvania's 12th District, home of the late Rep. John Murtha.

Republicans and Democrats both viewed this election, in a district trending heavily toward Republicans, as a portent of what might face them in November's midterm elections.

Democrat Mark Critz won decisively. As Politico put it, "Republicans failed spectacularly, losing on a level playing field where, in this favorable environment, they should have run roughshod over the opposition."

To be sure, Democrats face strong headwinds going into November's elections, and voter discontent is palpable.

But the ideological battle within the Republican Party threatens to marginalize the party, shifting it well out of the mainstream. [link]
The Democrat won and the Republican lost.  So there.

But wait.  That 'ideological battle" that the Times mentions?  The kids there might want to take a closer lookThe Democrat who won is pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, anti-ObamaCare, and ran to the right of the Republican on taxes.

Maybe the Democrat did win.

But the conservative won too.

Foreigner Levels Attack Against Americans ...

... Obama sides with foreigner.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon goes after the good citizens - Americans all - of Arizona: "I know that we share the interest in promoting dignified, legal and orderly living conditions to all migrant workers. Many of them, despite their significant contribution to the economy and to the society of the United States, still live in the shadows and, occasionally, as in Arizona, they even face discrimination."

Obama falls all over himself agreeing with this Mexican and dumping on his own people.

Obama: "Asked if he agrees with President Calderon's view that the Arizona immigration law 'that is forcing our people to face discrimination,' President Obama said in the Rose Garden just now that it 'has the potential of being applied in a discriminatory fashion.'" [source]

One wonders who's side our president is on.

Well, no we don't.  It's perfectly clear. The New York Times:  "Mr. Obama joined Mr. Calderón in denouncing the new Arizona law on illegal immigration while defending his own record on border security."

Never in my life has there been an instance where a president of the United States sided with a foreigner over his own people.  Never.

Until now.

I can't tell you how angry I am over this.  Still, I'm not sure why.  We knew before he got elected that he was anti-American.  This is just another manifestation of that attitude of his.

But this slimeball is supposed to be representing us, not illegals from another country who, with every day they remain here, are breaking our laws and belittling our good will.

If there was ever a day when I thought the border fence was a good idea, I'm certain of it now.  Calderon wants us to deal more kindly with those who have fled his country because of conditions there that he has done nothing to improve.  I say we're through dealing with them at all.  Send them all back.  Every illegal Mexican in our midst.  Let Calderon deal with them with dignity.

And send Obama with them.  He's chosen which side he wants to be on.  Good riddance.  Don't let that barbed wire bite your skinny ass on your way out.

And Obama Isn't Alone

There are others in that den of thieves who trash their own country at every opportunity:
With Arizona, You Get Egg Roll on Your Face
By Robert Knight, American Thinker

What a handy thing to have in your transnational quiver for those times when you want to identify with the tyrants of the world.

"We brought it up early and often," State Department official Michael Posner said of Arizona's recently toughened immigration law. And to whom was he talking? Just Communist Chinese officials -- about human rights violations.

And why not? The Obama administration has practically declared war on Arizona for daring to defend the border that the feds will not secure. Arizona has become liberal shorthand for "racist," "xenophobe," or "bigot."

Posner, assistant secretary for democracy, human rights, and labor at the State Department, was part of discussions last week with the Chinese, and he felt their pain over reminding them of little things like forced abortions, murdered priests, padlocked churches, and tortured dissidents. To make them feel better about themselves, and so we wouldn't sound so preachy, he volunteered that the U.S. delegation regarded Arizona's new law as part of "a troubling trend in our society" toward "discrimination or potential discrimination." The U.S. delegation also helpfully accused their own country of being unfair to "Muslim Americans in an immigration context."

With friends like these...wait a minute. Posner's not just a backstabbing "friend." He is representing us. He speaks for the American people. Not Arizonans, maybe, but the rest of us. [link]
You elected this bunch.  Shame on you.

And If They're Not Anti-American ...

... members of the Obama administration are blithering idiots:
Locke Says Green Energy Needed to Avoid Flooding in Shanghai
By Mark Drajem, Business Week

May 18 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. and China need to take the lead in cutting greenhouse gas output if the countries are going to avoid the creation of vast deserts or flooding in downtown Shanghai or New York, Commerce Secretary Gary Locke said.

“That is the very real and very scary downside of our energy and climate challenge,” Locke said in a speech at the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai today. “When rising sea levels flood Manhattan or Pudong in Shanghai, you had better believe climate change is going to be bad for business.”

“It is important to remember that many of the technologies needed to successfully cope with climate change simply don’t exist yet.” [link]
We need to move away from fossil fuels ...

... though there is no alternative ...

... in order to save the planet ...

... from a problem - global warming - that doesn't exist.

For the love of God.

Quote of the Day

Connecticut Senate Candidate - and Democrat - Richard Blumenthal (the dude who was caught lying about his military service record):

"Veteran and military-support charities are particularly welcome on Veterans Day. Despite many well-intentioned and worthwhile charities supporting veterans, there is also a sea of exploitive, poorly managed or even fraudulent fundraisers."

... said the exploitive and fraudulent Democrat.
