Political Tipping Point

As with all politics of late, a great and grand crisis looms, it is the modus operandi of the current administration.  Our conundrum has been framed like a B western movie; shall the good guys (Democrats) continue to pay the ever expanding list of entitlements and pet programs or fall prey to the sinister and evil Tea Party thugs who wish to push the poor and downtrodden back into the work camps of self reliance?

Really??  No not really, this is what happens when message trumps substance.  The Demagogic Democrats have been handed their scripts, associate the Tea Party as radicals, position yourself as the defender of Medicare and Medicade, place Social Security in that Gore lock box and call the opposition rigid and unyielding, and most of all, repeat after me, “fair and balanced”.

This my friends is the change they believe in, never mind our government as a whole is borrowing 60 cents of every dollar spent just to service the mounting debt, never mind bureaucratic laden agencies such as the Department of Education, EPA, Amtrac, USPS, and the litany of others rife with inefficiency, we need to save these vital and crucial agencies?

In a phrase: sorry but that dog won’t hunt.  The message and answers are really simple; do we as a nation continue to “feed the beast” of rampant government growth, or do we begin to lay the foundation of accountability of the governing process.

This process of accountability began as a loosely formed group of individuals spurred on by the rant which at the time seemed like nothing more than another talking head venting his anger at government oppression; thus spawned the Tea Party.

The Tea Party is not a Republican platform, it does not consist of anarchist, it is not radical, it is the voice of frustration created by the never ending insular government leadership who fail to recognize the voice of the people.  To minimize its presence, to attack it’s viability, is a large miscalculation by its oppressors that is clearly based in the fear that finally a large majority of active individuals has had enough!

Regardless of how the manufactured passion play on the raising of the debt ceiling is resolved, more and more individuals realize a power shift is underway, we as a people are returning to a land governed by the people, and that reality has, and should strike fear in the political base for now they are accountable and no amount of polling catch phrases will stop that process.

The overwhelming theme of today’s headlines is the structured one minded attacks of  GOP presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann based on some of her less than accurate historical comments.  For all intent and purpose these minor gaff’s pale in comparison to the current state of the union on so many levels one has to wonder is this the best the liberal detractors can come up with?  Should not the questions be Mrs. Bachmann, what is your plan to turn around the economy, the jobless rate, your position on national defense, the current unrest in the Middle East?

The media’s choice to focus on minutia, is telling in that is uncovers a very real and valid fear; hey this woman is pretty darn smart and is racing up the GOP polls like a some kind of GOP Secretariate, garnering influence and mass followers along the way, or in other words a very real challenge to Obama in 2012.

If 2008 proved anything is clearly shows us that politics in the internet 24/7 age is directly tied to the buzz one can create outside of the normal means of the controlled media.  The fourth estate has expanded to small gorilla social media consortium’s so much so that now the media powerhouses of the past have been relegated to nothing more than attack dogs of any source that might not agree with their structured plan of who should be in power.

In essence a quantifiable balancing of the structured message has taken place, and the old school NBC’s, CBS’s find themselves in a diminished role of influence.  I for one could not be happier.

Anyone have a syllabus?   One issue is clear, President Obama is frustrated and true to form and without forethought Ploofe, and Obamas speechwriters penned a very lackluster State Of The Union Speech.  I will give Ploofe credit, you could hardly see the puppet strings last night.

In the Presidents first SOTU speech a grand missed opportunity became evident once Obama turned rabid, rather than bend to the will of the people, the Obama demagoguery was the tact taken.  Oh there were small apologies but none specific,  what was specific is Obama see’s his actions as true and correct, some might say, pathological.

First he attacked the Supreme Court sitting not 30 feet from the lectern, so inflamed was Obama that he is creating an “executive order” in an effort to circumvent the courts decision.  Second, and thoughtfully so, Obama began to castigate his own party, literally calling them out as cowards, IE; “run for the hills” comes to mind.  Not to be left out, Obamas ire and sarcasm was unleashed on the Republican party of whom for all intent and purpose he called “obstructionist”, and created problems HE faces when he walked in the door?

Then came the sing song Southern Preacher in an effort to rise the level of emotion, the bland stories about little Jimmy in Two Egg Florida who can’t get health care.  The obligatory, “our country has faced tough times before” angle, then when the crowd was his, (in his mind) Obama promised to fight for us the American public. Suggestion, how about listening to the American public first!

The great orator has lost touch, in fact, the great orator has lost his audience of Independents, moderate Democrats, and last but not least, the impressionable youth.  Times are tough when you loose the trust of the people, and in reality President Obama has no one to blame but himself.  Rather than doing the right thing, Obama has choose to ignore the voice of the people, and with the ample assistance of Rham Emanual Chief Of Pit Bull’s they have severely overplayed their hand by leveraging the economic crisis to implement their BIG GOVERNMENT pie in the sky plan for recovery.

Not once did Obama apologize or direct blame for the current economic crisis on his own party who has been in control of the purse strings since 2006, or the runaway budget deficits created by HIS stimulus plan, he also failed to mention that the current housing crisis started with Bill Clinton and John Podesta, and was ushered past any semblance of pragmatic governance by Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Rham Emanual, and a litany of other Democrats attempting to protect their disenfranchised voting base.

No President Obama went into full campaign mode last night, and expect much more of the same now that Plouffe is back in the fray.  This is where this administration finds its center, attack everyone and everything, then state you have a better way, but offer nothing but worn out shallow promises of change, when what our country really needs is a clearly defined platform with bipartisan support.

Our nation is being held hostage by Obama’s narcissistic rage, which is the root cause of the Presidents passive-aggressive attacks directed at anyone who questions his intellect.  Our country deserves more, and I will say our country demands more of our elected leadership, to offer any less, is a betrayal to the citizens of this great nation.  Time to lead, follow or get out of the way Mr. President, ego be dammed.

Obama’s most useful tool in the 2008 election was to paint his image as the savior and leader of the emerging populist movement, Scott Brown and the Supreme Court put a severe dent in that image last week, so much so that Obama has enlisted the services of David Plouffe Obamas former campaign manager to re-spin and fortify Obamas convoluted message to the masses.

Clearly Obamas strategy to take advantage of the current economic crisis to push the Democrats social leaning, big government, spread the wealth policies is leaking water like a sieve. Bring in Plouffe, the Pied Piper and media mastermind in the 2008 election who was charged with leading a virtual unknown to the Office of President by pushing a populist platform has been given the reins in the effort to regain that “Obama magic” seen in the last election.

Plouffe’s efforts will have to contend with the “controversial” Supreme Court decision last week opening up the flood gates to corporate spending in political campaigns, which actually is a brilliant move to add balance back to the political process. Although this move was seen by most politicians as judicial activism by a conservative court, the byproduct of this move will place the power of the electorate in the hands of the very companies Obama and his team attack publicly but look to for support behind closed doors, IE; the elite bankers and Wall Street financiers.

If you thought the Obama administration was in campaign mode before, prepare yourself for an all out media attack directed at the painted and perceived demons of a free society, the money changers. Although this tact was highly successful in the 2008 election where Obamas ideology and “Uber Liberal” beliefs were unknown, the task will be practically insurmountable now that the constituency has seen the real Obama.

Obamas expected shift to jobs and employment will surely be the foundation of his State Of The Union speech, but also pay close attention to who Obamas speech writers are attacking, will Obama shift to the middle with fiscal restraint and a workable jobs program, or will Obama continue to push the social agenda of health care, cap and trade and financial reform at his own demise.

The choices are clear on which direction this country needs to go, the question is will Obama concede to the masses, or continue to forge ahead in his egocentric quest for his page in history? This quote sums up the Obama administration to date “You can’t change a pig into a race horse, but you can have a very fast pig”, clearly Obama is not a “race horse”, the question is can he be a “very fast pig”? That question will be answered in part this week, but given past history I see pork chops in the future, pass the barbecue sauce please.

Considering the Democratic loss in Massachusetts which is considered the bastion of Democratic ideology you would think Obama and his handlers would give more than lip service to the media about their current negative tact and direction.

Initial finger-pointing was directed at Coakley where the Obama brain trust used every adjective possible to distance themselves from the dramatic loss of “Ted Kennedys” seat, but wait their always is George Bush and the last eight year drama they can leverage!

In the usual highly scripted Obama response the same sing songy Obama style language was directed at “the mess we inherited”, where blame or abdication thereof was placed firmly on the door step of the Bush administration, only this time the tread has fallen off the track.

Two times Obama has been inserted at the last moment to save the day, it happened in NJ and now MA, but Obama’s eloquent power of words and actions do not meet, he is asking voters to trust him, then in the same breath he projects blame to the past administration shunning all responsibility. By taking this approach Obama continues to insult the intelligence of the American public, and cement the glaring fact that leadership is not his strong suit.

Victor Davis Hanson is dead on when he states “I believe President Clinton provided some crucial insight when he said, “people would rather be with someone who is strong and wrong than weak and right.” It’s not that people are uninterested in who’s right or wrong, it’s that people will only follow leaders who seem to actually believe in what they are doing. Democrats have missed this essential fact”

Hanson goes on to state about Obama’s style “A technocracy – many Ivy-League-educated and without much experience outside academia and government – pushes legislation most people do not want but is nevertheless judged to be good for them.”

Clearly a detached elitist view when people are treated as ignorant children to be told what is correct and that they should be glad that Obama’s “benevolent guidance” is being offered, also to accept Obamas efforts because they are what Obama chose to pursue and are good for the people regardless of what those very same people may think!

Continuing on the elite theme, and like all great “Utopian kings” they exempt themselves from their own laws, all hail the King!

In a continued effort to focus on past mistakes or the perceived weakness of the Bush years, Obama has directed his negative hit machine on the bank bailouts, along with the evil Wall Street bankers. It is important to note Obama, Gethner, and Summers all bought into TARP with Obama signing the bill while he was still a Senator, so more of the same double speak when the rubber hits the road from this administration.

Both JFK and Clinton faced the same challenges in their first year, both were able to adapt and thrive, for all intent and purpose Obama should be able to do the same. But as of today Obama’s efforts are beginning to resemble the old adage, “he is just a one trick pony”, we have three more years to figure that one out, but the ponies feed bag has become one vote short of a meal, and this will make Obama’s “change we can believe in” all that more difficult, anyone know what time the Bush re-runs are on?

It was reported by Johna Goldberg this morning that Newsweek  Magazine has enlisted the services of President Obama to write a piece on the current tragedy in Haiti. Although a noble cause, and truth be told Obama will have one of his staffers write the piece, this request is further evidence of the blurring of the lines between the press and the political process.

Also of note is the fact that in the past Newsweek has had a rather aggressive tilt in their coverage of Obama and his administration. The question that comes to mind is; why not just issue a press release which is normal SOP in cases similar to Haiti’s tragedy. Considering this point, the next viable question is what is the motive or payoff for the exclusive scoop to Newsweek?

Payoff:  Newsweek is one of Obama’s top supporters,  they have kowtowed and idolized Obama from the beginning, the bill is now being called due now that  Newsweeks redesign and change of  focus is coming out of the gate.  They need a home run to pull this off, what better way than to plaster Obama’s face on their newly redesigned rag.

Motivation:  All kidding aside, Obama loves Obama, no mirror is safe, I can see the Prez in 20 years (living in exile) paging through all the covers he garnered while in office, the man is a narcissist plain and simple.

Not to dilute the crisis in Haiti, but this is not the best use of office to be pandering to the media, I don’t think the subscription rate in Haiti will increase due to this article, and by now becoming Author In Chief it further degrades the office of President.

Now if I can only find that recipe  piece by Lincoln, or was that FDR, no Trueman, I am making the President some humble pie!

Much has been said about the potential losses the  Democratic party will face in the 2010, what has not been addressed is who or what party will reap the perceived benefit of these losses.

With the Tea Party stumbling out of the gate, the lack of solidified Republican platform, the Democrats abysmal polling numbers and least we forget the independents, 2010 could ultimately result in the increased marginalization of all four platforms.

Obama currently garners an estimated 30-35% of the lefts support regardless of issue, call it blind ambition, Republicans continue to struggle with similar polling numbers, Independents are leaning right, the Tea Party movement is in its infant stage, so as they say in football, time to throw the hail Mary, and although political opportunity abounds, so do the associated risks, read on.

Given the above scenarios along with an increase in each of the platforms protectionism to assure it’s ideological growth the potential for stagnation and inability to proffer any useful legislation will surely follow.  This fractionating of the former two party system into what appears to be four distinct groups is dangerous in that no clear consensus can be obtained when one is so sorely needed.

The current and proposed infighting for top billing will assuredly result in the increase of the benign grandiose promises politicians have become so caviler at issuing but not keeping as of late. With the end result of increasing the ruminating displeasure toward our elected officials which is dangerously at an all time high. While this process is an integral part of the form and function of a free republic, the answer on who will reign supreme is a story yet to be told. This fight for supremacy will surely leave copious amounts of blood on the battlefield further dividing our country when a unification of purpose is what is required.

What spoils remain for the winner along with it’s direction will make life interesting far into the approaching decade, and from a personal perspective none of the four competing factions have jumped to the forefront with any brilliant ideas or suggestions, nor statesman like leadership.

Obama was correct in that our government needs “fundamental change”, but not to the bloated, special interest driven, increased socialization of the political machine that now exists.  For now until our proposed hero reaches that Valhalla, the highest use we the citizens of the United States can perform is to be ever vigilant, and involved in the process.

Lastly, we as a nation have dropped the proverbial ball over the last 30-40 years in that our apathy and acceptance of our elected officials has not been in our best interest. This nescient approach has led us to the conundrum we all now face, our saving grace is that history will show the American people possess unlimited resolve when their freedoms are vetoed by the very same elected officials we entrusted.

To use a highly worn out metaphor our Republic is facing “a defining moment” it is up to each of us to become part of that definition, that my fellow Americans is the only platform that matters!

In a complete 180, some say 360 reverting back to the promises made on the campaign trail, Obama talked tough on terrorism today.  Obama with a pitch count of three strikes and no balls in his discontinued war on terror, took a swing at a curve ball and accepted blame for the current lax and disorganized effort of late while on his watch, and promised change.

Although the Presidents speech did inferred a break down in “intelligence dissimulation” would be addressed, he split the blame  50 cents Obama, the other 50 being thrown in the direction of  the intelligence agencies tasked with our safety, stopping the “buck/blame” equally between the two.

Today’s statement was an about face in that Obama framed his comments directed at the one area of doubt that has empowered the “evildoers”, “we are at war, this is not a crime wave”.  Now terrorist (if we can call them that) can be viewed as enemy combatants, and will be treated as such, certainly a new stance for the fledgling President.

The danger with the “other cheek” strategy is that it can lead to overkill. In an effort to establish the resolve of the Obama stance increased restrictions, policies and costs are sure to follow, it’s this administrations way. While this new tough stance might increase our well being, question is at what cost, The Patriot Act, Act II?

Some are of the opinion that further work needs to be done, specifically reconstituting the moral at the CIA and other military establishments who have been targeted as the scapegoat for Obama’s team over the last twelve months. While the Obama administration attempted their terrorist friendly approach, the agencies in charge of keeping us safe faced daily political attacks, career threats, and potential law suits, a clear sign by Obama’s handlers that now they were in charge, and let them know it.

Terrorism by definition; “the unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments”, was successfully carried out Christmas day 2009. Terrorism is not going away, we all will be touched by it’s success for years to come, the trillion dollar question becomes; what freedoms are we willing to give up to feel safe, and is safe ever achievable?

It’s a perfect time to be a fatalist and a free one at that!

I am adverse in giving David Brooks any further attention, but…several adjectives come to mine; vapid, pseudo intellectual, narcissistic self professed “educated class” blowhole, pop to the surface rather quickly. Dave penned Tea Party Teens yesterday a wispy, dare I say view of anyone outside the liberal print media is uneducated kind of article, or as Dave phrases it a “fractious confederation of Americans who are defined by what they are against”.

Nice tat Dave here is the tit, Dave your rather snooty opinion carries no more weight than any other talking head, and for you to get all intellectual on our lowly tea party asses, deserves a dual, (of words).  Below lets address just a schooch of the lofty observations you alledge, point counter point, game on.

DAVE:  The public is not only shifting from left to right. Every single idea associated with the educated class has grown more unpopular over the past year.

MP: So then Dave you are saying the left, educated class as you put it is moving to the right, but the right is a “fractious confederation of Americans” does that not make the right smarter?

DAVE: The educated class believes in global warming, so public skepticism about global warming is on the rise. The educated class supports abortion rights, so public opinion is shifting against them. The educated class supports gun control, so opposition to gun control is mounting.

MP: First, yes, yes, yes on the oppositions stand, heres why, and let’s ponder a little.  Global warming, the educated class believes this because they believe in science, things they can prove, just look at all the evidence, this Dave  is the limitation of the elite intellect, and your liberal moonbattedness, (yes I know it is not a word).  Truth be told, even with the best science of the day, no one can prove this is not a normal cycle the earth is going through and there is little we can do to stop it, that’s the fatalist view, but this opinion is one that is making it’s rounds among the edumacated folk.  Before we tax the middle class into oblivion, more definitive unbiased information needs to be reviewed, remember scientist don’t get paid if they do not receive grants to do such.

DAVE: The story is the same in foreign affairs. The educated class is internationalist, so isolationist sentiment is now at an all-time high, according to a Pew Research Center survey. The educated class believes in multilateral action, so the number of Americans who believe we should “go our own way” has risen sharply.

MP: Dave lots of people are trying to kill us, America has been the have’s to the worlds have not’s that fact doesn’t engender a great deal of good will from third world nations.  In the past to overcome this label the U.S. government has either thrown money at the problem, or become occupiers, neither of which is in the best interest of the effected party or the United States.

DAVE: The tea party movement is a large, fractious confederation of Americans who are defined by what they are against. They are against the concentrated power of the educated class. They believe big government, big business, big media and the affluent professionals are merging to form self-serving oligarchy — with bloated government, unsustainable deficits, high taxes and intrusive regulation.

MP:  Large group, yes, fractious confederation, naw, real people Dave, one’s that work for a living or have worked hard and are tired of being taxes without representation best describes the Tea Party Movement.  As to the second part, is that a trick question, remember I am a fractious confederate, but either you are trying to fool us bumpkins or we agree on; “they believe big government, big business, big media and the affluent professionals are merging to form self-serving oligarchy — with bloated government, unsustainable deficits, high taxes and intrusive regulation”.  Why would anyone want big government Dave, it costs to much and is highly inefficient, big business, hey I am all for that, what my kind do not care for is unfair competition garnered by backroom political dealings with the help of lobbyist, and lastly we have been living in an “oligarchy” since JP Morgan, John D Rockefeller, and Senator Nelson W. Aldrich  met on  Jekyll Island in 1910 setting the ground work for the Federal Reserve, so woops too late we have been an oligarchy for 100 years now!

Chances are Dave you will never read this post and that is a shame, like you I have an opinion, and that opinion is you have been running in elite circles so long you have sorely lost touch with middle America.  In fact I would say you fear middle America, why else would you be so condescending in your article about the tea party movement?  Time to come down off that pedestal and talk to a few of us folk, you might be surprised at how cogent we can be when motivated by what middle America see’s as high crimes and treason being committed by our elected officials.  No hurry though, we don’t tire easy or give up when our freedom is at stake, take your time, maybe after cocktails at the club you could squeeze us in.

Now that Obamas first year is behind us, and hopefully his benign payback to the lefts hopey changie agenda a specific focus on what the real problems are and how the political community is to blame for our economic woe’s.  In a report that was released in the heat of the health care battle this summer, the committee on oversight and government reform deftly pinpointed the smoking gun to the current economic crisis and the players involved.

Not surprisingly numerous high level Democratic and Republican names  litter the pages of the 28 page tome on how Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac’s involvement with the help of the well placed politicians and lobbyist’s practically guaranteed the bursting of the housing bubble.  The conclusions and sub text further cement the fact that neither government or politicians are capable of managing any enterprise without getting their pound of flesh.

Also within the pages of the report the names Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Bill Clinton, Peter Orzog, Countrywide, Larry Summers, Rham Emanuel, and lastly Chuck Shumer.  Ironically for the exception of a few names these individuals have been tasked with “cleaning up the mess from the past”.  In pure political form the ones who created the mess are now the brave souls who will right the ship with the newly proffered Financial Reform bill now in the house.

The report, which can be read here, spins a tale of, cooked books, favoritism, outright tortuous interference, and copious amounts of cronyism all happening in full site of the regulators tasked to prevent such fraud.  The report shows that the proper regulatory oversight was in place but was cajoled, manipulated, and threatened to turn a blind eye to the political infighting.  This fact is highly relevant in that with the proposed “Financial Reform” legislation now being discussed by the very same offenders of the past policy is nothing more than a political game of propaganda to detract from the real causes of the failure of Fannie and Freddie Mac.

If you read the 28 page report (you should)  you gain an understanding on how the machine works, also evident is the prevailing attitude that the politicians cared little about expanding home ownership, but were more interested in placating and expanding their voting bases.  The pandering, back room deals, and favoritism shown in the Fannie and Freddie downfall  add to the continued mountain of evidence that government should not be involved in the management of any free enterprise, and without the threat of failure, accountability or fiscal restraint it came down to not if the GSE’s would fail but on who’s watch.

As we usher in a new decade “fundamental change” in fact must take place, but where that change must be fostered is on the shoulders of the people, the followers must become the leaders no longer accepting the hollow promises of our politicians rote.  The genius of the American system of freedom is we “currently” have choice, we just have to become better at remembering that key fact and put it to work, or we all will be learning Mandarin in due haste.
