Reagan's 11th Commandment is FUBAR

Feb 24, 2013 8:11 AM PT

In response to I Agree 100% - Time To Invoke Reagan's 11th Commandment:

Wrong. Reagan's 11th Commandment has never held water throughout Republican circles. The commandment is merely an excuse to scare Republicans into not bashing establishment candidates and elected officials. First of all, if Republicans were obligated to adhere to this 'commandment,' what would become of the primary elections?

The silver lining of sequestration hysteria

Feb 23, 2013 1:10 PM PT

George Will becomes the latest level-headed observer to sneer in utter disgust at Obama's sequestration hysteria:

The sequester has forced liberals to clarify their conviction that whatever the government’s size is at any moment, it is the bare minimum necessary to forestall intolerable suffering. At his unintentionally hilarious hysteria session Tuesday, Obama said: The sequester’s “meat-cleaver approach” of “severe,” “arbitrary” and “brutal” cuts will “eviscerate” education, energy and medical research spending. “And already, the threat of these cuts has forced the Navy to delay an aircraft carrier that was supposed to deploy to the Persian Gulf.”

Watch, listen, then apply context. Rush plays off Michelle and his website crashes. Pure genius on his part... and sadly, how true is his statement? 

Rush is right that we should be ashamed of ourselves for letting the DC crowd and Obama drive the "fear" narrative. Planes won't fall out of the sky, cops will show up if called and so will firefighters. Kids will be taught. 

BTW--Somebody tell Obama that teachers, firefighters, and police officers are paid by state and local budgets. Budgetary adjustments will account for less federal money, meaning new people need to be in charge at the state and local levels.  

Obama created an unpalatable deal in sequestration which Republicans voted for under the guise that nobody would want it to happen. It is a "hope" strategy and after four years we should get it that "hope" is not a strategy.
