Columnist Bob Lonsberry has a description/commentary on the Wall St. protesters [an integral part of Obama's re-election campaign] that our conservative readers will savor:
Every dog has fleas.
Blood-sucking fleas that crawl on it and mooch off it.
Just like society.
Dogs have fleas and society has Democrats.
Or socialists or anarchists or unionists or environmentalists or whatever you want to call the dregs of humanity having free love on the sidewalks of Wall Street.
It’s been going on for three weeks now and has in recent days built to a fever pitch.
At least among the network reporters.
Who honestly seem sexually aroused by the whole thing.
Each newscast features some vapid, breathless idiot yammering into a camera about corporate greed and the unemployment rate and bank bailouts and how the common people are finally being heard....
Without banks and corporations, you have a Third World economy and periodic famine.
Of course, with most liberal policies – if you implemented the various causes of these demonstrators – you would have a Third World economy and periodic famine.
So let’s call a spade a spade.
These demonstrations are about galvanizing the Democratic base. Poor leaders always strengthen themselves through hate. Hitler had Jews, Jim Crow had blacks, Democrats have corporations, banks and “the rich.” Different degrees, same principle – unite your followers by fomenting and harnessing their hate.
Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress have failed, to either lead the country or effectively implement their followers principles. Recognizing that without the base they have no chance of retaining power, the Democrat rabble rousers have burned the proverbial Reichstag.
Hate the banks, hate the rich, hate the Republicans.
And vote for Barack.
That’s what these demonstrations are about.
