Obama to America: You’re Stupid

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

In the wake of what some of my friends are calling the “Massachusetts Miracle,” the Democrats are now acknowledging the widespread voter anger that has been at their very doorstep for a year now but which they’ve chosen to either ignore, dismiss or criticize as the ravings of a racist, zenophobic fringe group.

Lest you think, however, the results and analysis of the special election have resulted in a little humility and self-examination on the part of the Democrats and their leaders, think again. The stream of words coming out of Washington to explain the Brown win runs fast and deep, but the central theme is unmistakable.

They think we’re stupid.


Memo to Steny: Bush Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

SUBJECT: George W. Bush Has Left The Building

ATTN: Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Majority Leader, U.S. House of Representatives

Rep. Hoyer:

It’s pretty clear that you never spent any time on active duty. You and many of your fellow Democrats have a difficult time accepting responsibility for – well, anything.

When I was in the U.S. Air Force, If I had started babbling like you do about how the current deficit spending and the voter’s anger over it is everyone’s fault but your own, my commander would have stopped me and said, “Lieutenant, are you making excuses?” The right answer? “No excuse, sir.”

I heard your voice on the radio a couple of days ago, talking about voter anger and how it’s justified. Just when I thought I might run off the road because His Highness the Majority Leader was about to speak the truth, you snapped out of it and blurted out the same tired line about “the depth of the recession inherited by the administration and by this Congress.”

Enough already, Mr. Majority Leader. If you think the voters are mad at you now, just keep that up. We’re not stupid or blind; we can see who’s spending what and when.


Reid’s Words Fully Vetted

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

The national discussion on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s racially charged comments about then-Senator Barack Obama is still going, but I chose to wait and think about it before publishing my thoughts.

I’m currently writing a book on race in America from the perspective of a conservative who happens to be black, and Reid’s comments dovetailed nicely with a topic that’s at the forefront of my mind.


Exit Stage Left, With Grace

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

In William Shakespeare’s play As You Like It, the character Jacques utters these famous words:

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.

What Jacques doesn’t tell us is who’s directing the play or who’s in the audience. As Christians, we believe that God is the Director and the Audience, and we perform for Him.

We’re not trying to win His favor with our performances – by repenting and accepting the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as payment for our sins, and making Him the Lord of our lives, we’ve already got the part. We’re performing for two reasons – to show our gratitude to Him for His gift of salvation by being fully obedient to Him, and to show others the way to Him.

That leads me to – the National Football League. Huh? Hang on – you’ll see my point.
