Letter: All hail to the chief

Liberals across the nation are all puffed up over the recent Democrat massacre of Republicans in the battle over the twin crises of government shutdown and debt limit increase.

And what a massacre it was. With tireless and enthusiastic support from the liberal media, Obama trounced Republicans in general and the tea party in particular. All hail to the chief.

But was it a fair fight? Let’s see. Since liberals control the presidency, the Supreme Court and the Senate, which is half of Congress, the liberals had an advantage of 2 1/2 to 1/2. Equivalently, that’s 5 to 1.

Throw in the fact that the Republican majority in the House of Representatives is badly split between RINOs (Republicans in name only) and tea party activists, the odds were more like 2 3/4 to 1/4. That’s equivalent to 11 to 1.

Now that’s the kind of odds liberals like, 11 to 1 in their favor. That’s like the Alabama Crimson Tide with 11 men on the field playing Dalton High School with a team consisting of a linebacker and 10 ghosts.

But what exactly did the gloating liberals win in this massacre? Well, they won another trillion dollars of national debt. They won three more months of out of control spending. They won the forward march of the much dreaded Obamacare. And they won the enhanced adoration of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post and all the rest of the liberal media.

Speaking of Obamacare, how about those much ballyhooed Internet health care exchanges that opened up on Oct. 1? Turns out the websites are so pathetically designed they will likely need to be completely scrapped. But wait, didn’t Obama have three-and-a-half years to get these things up and running? Looks like his incompetence in domestic matters is on the same level as his incompetence in foreign affairs.

The website mess, though, is not stopping the White House from claiming incredible numbers of folks who have signed up on the exchanges. Must be Joe Biden doing the counting. Probably working out of whatever cellar he is holed up in.

Meanwhile, while Obamacare is down and not running, liberals will continue their vicious attack on tea party advocates. Why are they so hateful to these folks? Because they fear them, of course. The tea party and its supporters are the only people left in America that stand in the way of the ultimate liberal dream of a fully socialist America.
