While most of my conservative friends view America as lost; I have decided to become the Happy Warrior, like our departed friend Andrew Breitbart. One reason begins with one reality; our opponents can easily be mocked. The real secret behind them is they are brilliant politicians but are also some of the dumbest when it comes to policy. The funniest part is that these guys actually believe they are so much smarter than the rest of us and don’t even comprehend how dumb they are.
When Obama tells Boehner, “Hey, we don’t have a spending problem,” my first thought was, “What a moron.” I am reminded of a joke that use to be said during the Nixon era and is constantly updated. A 20 year old oil worker, an old pastor, President Obama and Hillary Clinton are on a plane about to crash. It was discovered there are only three parachutes and Obama takes the first and declares, “I am the President of the United States and I will take the first chute,” so off he goes. Hillary states, “I am the Secretary of State and a woman, plus I am the smartest person in America and I have an Ivy League degree to prove it,” so she takes the second chute and leaves. The old Pastor looks sadly at the 20 year old and states, “I am old, so take the last chute.” The 20 year old stares at the old man and then quips, “Hey Reverend, don’t worry, there are two chutes left.” The old Pastor looks confused and the young man says, “You see, the smartest woman in America grabbed my backpack.” This sums up the administration, they institute policy that doesn’t make sense.
For the past four years, we have seen a recovery that is tepid at best and kept alive by an expansive Federal Reserve. Obama tells Boehner, all we have to do is restrain health care costs and viola, the budget deficit is cured. The reality is we are preparing to implement Obamacare and health care costs are going up and we are no way near ready to put Obamacare in effect next year and much of America is still skeptical about Obama’s number one legislation. So as healthcare continues to rise and many are starting to realize that Obamacare costs will rise greater than predicated, there is no way Obamacare will lower healthcare costs. The only person who does not to understand this is Obama himself.
Over the next four years, it will be good to have a sense of humor since there is one thing we have going for us: Obamanomics. It will not succeed over the long term and we have an administration who simply doesn’t comprehend they are leading America off the fiscal cliff and nor do they have a serious plan to restrain government spending. The recent attack on the Second Amendment may be waking up a few Americans that we have an administration that either has little understanding of the Constitution or simply doesn’t care. With many New York gun owners simply refusing to registers their guns, we are seeing civil disobedience on a large scale rarely seen in America. New York Governor Cuomo is turning law-abiding citizens into criminals for simply believing in their constitutional rights.
In the meantime, we can simply watch the hubris of the left as they call law abiding citizens Nazis for believing in the Constitution and marvel how far the ruling class has fallen. And chuckle at the silliness that substitutes for policy coming out of Washington and understanding the following truth: One can design a superior economic plan by asking twenty people out of the phone book at random for their thoughts. Be a happy warrior for in politics; what goes around comes around. Self-declared permanent majorities often crumble into sand when political mistakes are made and this Administration will make more than their fair share.
