Of late, much as been made in the Blogosphere by Liberals and Progressives – and the more mainstream professional Democrats – about Thomas E. Mann’s and Norman J. Ornstein’s recent assault upon the GOP.
The Leftists living within America’s borders love it since it stays staunchly within their narrative experience, and reinforces their ideological beliefs.
Mostly, the focus had been upon one paragraph in their lengthy Op-ed of April 27, 2012:
The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.
While Mann and Ornstein meant this as approbation, there’s truth in it and it is something that the burgeoning Conservative arm of the GOP should be heartily proud of.
Yes! The current Republican Party, largely through the efforts of TEA Party and those the elected into office, is insurgent outlier in American politics. They are no longer willing to maintain the destructive farce that is, and has been for generations, the status quo of American politics. They don’t just want change, they want and demand a course correction – because that’s what we, the People told them to want.
What has generations of weakness and cowardice bought America? What has generations of what is called compromise within the beltway brought this nation to? What has lifetimes of holding to the conventional DC wisdom and understanding done to this nation and its people?
It has brought us closer and closer to the brink of disaster and utter ruin! For any party or constituency to think that more of the same will improve things is the most cowardly form of madness.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex… It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.
— Albert Einstein
The “sausage making” methodology that the Establishment Politicians of both parties have engaged in when making laws is akin to that of Sweeny Todd and Mrs. Lovett, with the American people and the co-residents, the Liberals, Progressives, and their minority tenants being what is ground up for the filling.
So yes! There’s, at last and possibly too late, a political insurgency in the form of the new, TEA Party infused GOP. We, the People have decided to stop being the victims and to play the part of the horrified and vengeful Tobias Ragg and they are the straight razor we have employed to do the job on our Todd and Lovett.
Thomas E. Mann & Norman J. Ornstein
The Beltway Bottom Feeders – Living off DC’s shit for 40 Years
And this scares and angers people like Thomas E. Mann’s and Norman J. Ornstein who’ve spent the entire adult lives feeding off of the ever more insulated and aloof from the citizenry federal government.
One need only review how Mann and Ornstein lauded the mainstream of the Democrat Party to see what they’re focused upon.
Democrats have become more of a status-quo party. They are centrist protectors of government…
Protectors of the government from what exactly? We, the People’s input and control of course. Such a thing strikes fear into the hearts of such as Mann and Ornstein because it directly affects their ability to continue to make their livings in their chosen manner.
Simply put, Mann and Orstein are bottom feeders – I won’t go quite so far as to call them parasites – that have been living of the professional politicians’ excrement for 40 years. Amazingly, they’ve become respected for this, which says much against some sectors of American society. So does the sad fact that these two have grown rich by such means.
I yeah, and the two of them have new book coming out that this assault is merely a trailer for…
