I was multitasking last night, watching Monday Night Football while reading a scary smart American Spectator
article written by Robert Stacy McCain about the futility of the Democrats and their proposed 'solutions' for the improving the economy.
Yes, history does repeat. The Left took steps that prolonged the suffering and the duration of the Depression by seven long years
. Today, they want to do the same thing, by instituting tried and true failed methods of 'stimulation.'
One must ask just how dumb, how ignorant of history are these supposedly brilliant people? Now they are in charge they must actually govern, not blame Republicans and they aren't very good at doing that.Stacy McCain
posits that all the opposition Republicans must do over the next four years is tell the country and anyone else willing to listen is that the stuff the Democrats want to do, and most certainly will do, won't work.
"Infrastructure "investments"? It won't work. Pump-priming "stimulus" payments? It won't work. More taxpayer-funded bailouts? It won't work. Go through the familiar liberal litany of economic prescriptions that Democrats are now suggesting, pick any proposal, and the message is the same: It won't work."
Many Republican leaders, most notably Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal have repeatedly said the Republican party cannot be the party of No and I wholeheartedly agree. It's just that we don't want to get in the way of the Democrats destroying themselves.
Says Stacy McCain again:
"Practically powerless to stop the Democratic agenda, and even less able to enact their own agenda, why should Republicans entangle themselves in the details of specific alternatives, when they can reap a bounty of political capital by repeating the simple truth?"
Federal tax holiday, anybody? That's going to begin to sound awfully good to middle class Americans somewhere around 2010 if Obama is true to his word and raises (not lowers) taxes on 95% of the country.Polls show that Americans believe Obama can fix the economy
, which is actually really bad news for the new president because he's doomed to failure if he signs into law the old style failed policies of the past. Hopefully, we won't have to suffer seven years longer than necessary.
