Shutdown Kicks Off ’14 Democrat Campaign
Liberals think they’ll be able to blame republicans for their shutdown.
Check it out:
Greetings, my friends, and welcome to what the Democrat Party is considering its opening move in the 2014 campaign: a government shutdown that looms in front of all of us. It’s the latest, and it is the next Democrat Party campaign move. It is felt and it’s being covered by the media totally in historical ways. It is not being adapted to anything really happening.
If I were to tell you that I don’t even know what really is happening here, I probably would be more honest than not. You know, I’ve been doing this for 25 years. We’ve been through government shutdowns countless times, and this one is just like all the other ones. It is being covered, it is being reported, it is being discussed totally within the paradigm of a horse race, totally within the framework of how this is going to destroy the Republican Party, the merits absent. The reasons for this maybe happening, absent. The human impact, the impact on real people of this disastrous piece of legislation, absent. Nobody is talking about it. I mean, in the media.
Frankly, I’m bored with it, folks. I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of everywhere you turn in the media, having as the top-level analysis how this is gonna destroy the Republicans, how it’s gonna be a great boon to Obama and the Democrats, and that’s all that matters, in fact, to the media. The substance of this — you know, the exchanges open for business tomorrow. It’s gonna be an absolute disaster. Nobody cares. Not a matter of concern. I mean, even in some so-called conservative journals of opinion, Obama’s no more than a CEO. He’s just a CEO, and when it doesn’t go right at implementation he’ll take whatever steps necessary to get it right. There’s no practical application in reporting of this story of what any of it really means and what any of it is really all about.
So the thing that you can do with this is to just discuss it within the same framework that the media presents it each and every day. CNN’s got their countdown clock, what is it 11 hours and 51 minutes and 25 seconds to the government shutdown, as though disaster awaits, as though the end of the world is on the cusp. And who will compromise, and who will blink, and who won’t? And who are we going to blame? The fact is that everybody involved on the left wants the government shutdown because this is the opening salvo of the Democrat campaign for 2014.
