One difference between right and left distilled for all by Debbie Wasserman-Shultz
Debbie Wasserman-Shultz is one of the more entertaining politicians to watch. Not necessarily because she isn’t the brightest penny in the roll or because she’s the head of the DNC (although both end up factoring in), but because she unwittingly and routinely mouths the platitudes that best exemplify why the left and right are so different.
Last night, while claiming that it is a slam dunk that Jews will vote for Obama (despite NY-9), she was reported to have said:
The Florida Democrat also insisted that the president will have no trouble winning her state – the stage for the Republican primary debate Thursday night – because Floridans understand that the president has fought hard to create jobs and turn the economy around.
Emphasis mine. That emphasized phrase, to me, underscores something fundamentally different in the way each side thinks.
Trying is nice, but results are what count to most on the right (and most rational Americans). But Wasserman-Shultz comes from the “hey, he tried and that’s good enough” school of reinforcing failure with feel-good nonsense (designed to get the failure another chance).
Obama tried. Vote for him again so he can try some more. Nevermind he’s in way over his head. Nevermind that he’s never been a leader in anything and it shows. Nevermind that everything he tried has failed and cost you 4 trillion in debt while he was at it. Nevermind that he refused to listen to the vast majority of you and rammed a costly and atrocious health care bill through and signed it into law. Nevermind that his promise to hold unemployment under 8% if you gave him a trillion dollars actually saw unemployment hit 10% after it was approved. Nevermind that he has totally ignored the unemployment problem and when, finally, forced to confront it (there’s an election coming up, you know), offers another spending bill with the same tired programs that failed before.
Anyone know what a list of “accomplishments” such as Obama’s would garner any employee at review time?
An invitation to go visit their incompetence on another employer if they can find one that would take them.
Certainly not the bonus of keeping their job, that’s for sure.
The unfortunate thing for the Democrats is most Americans think like the right, not the left, on this issue.
