From the Bully Pulpit: Who’s the Bully?

Of course I’ve read your posts, JP. And I hardly think your source for your case is a one-trick pony. Obama made a great case, got voted in, and lit up his opposition, who were able to energize major pockets of opposition and elect a bunch of Representatives. Pick an election; elections are polls, of course. It’s just as bad to ask, “Why doesn’t everyone see it my way?” Are you trying to claim American is not that conservative? Well, this is semantics as much as it is choosing information. Who cares?

What are the policies, the initiatives, the solutions? You are the one off track on method, Mr. Revolution, Mr. Wake Up, America. Let’s get moving, but in the right direction. What I oppose here is the following:

· Choosing facts to make a case, versus learning for the sake of learning. Really, though we all see through our own lens, we should seek clearer vision, not to augment our own clouds.

· Angst with no clear purpose. Objecting to the other guy simply because he’s not you; pushing them down in the mistaken belief it pulls you up.

· Simple classical liberal policies like more tax and spend, entitlements, union power, piled on regulations, all of which are as tired and failed as unchecked crony capitalism.

So fight on, my good man, fight the good fight.
