Heads Dems Win, Tails Reps Lose So Let It Burn...

"Let It Burn doesn’t work if GOP gets blamed for letting it burn."

Luv, please allow me to explain to you American Political Life Lesson #1:

It has always been thus and shall forevermore be so.  Want a few examples?

1. Vietnam: 

Liberals will ALWAYS treat a war started by Kennedy, lost by Johnson, ended by Nixon, with the last troop removed by Ford as a “Republican” war.

Predictable History:

Unpredictable Past:

a)  Nixon wasn't President in 1968.  He became President on 20 January 1969.

b) Kerry was NOT in Cambodia on Christmas Day in 1968.  There is not a single record of his EVER being in Cambodia between 17 November 1968, when he first reported for duty on the ground in Southeast Asia - in his case, he reported at Coastal Squadron 1 in Cam Ranh Bay in South Vietnam - and early April, 1969, when he departed Vietnam for the United States where he reported in at the Atlantic Military Sea Transportation Service in Brooklyn on the 11th of April.  There is not a single eyewitness of Kerry's alleged presence in Cambodia on Christmas Day 1968 or on any of the other ~140 days (4.75 months) he was "in jungle."

c)  Kerry's service was commendable, as is that of everyone who serves.  His lies are not.  His stolen valour is not (and I am talking to you, too, Dick Blumenthal).  His disgusting behaviour following his discharge with his "Winter Soldier/Psych patients, who had never been to Vietnam" was beneath contempt.  His conduction of meetings with Madame Nguyen Thi Binh and Lo Duc Tho, who had been sent to Paris by Ho Chi Minh to perfect the 7-point peace plan and sell it to antiwar activists just like Kerry in an effort to undermine the formal peace negotiations being undertaken on behalf of the United States government by Richard Nixon’s appointed team of negotiators headed by Henry Kissinger, was either an act of supreme naïveté bordering on criminally delusional or treason.  You decide.

What is not in dispute is that John Kerry was conducting foreign policy in contravention to that officially being negotiated by his elected government.  We know that he bragged of this in a press conference on 22 July1971 held in Washington where he begged his government to accept the terms of Madame Binh, the top Viet Cong negotiator to the Paris Peace talks, which included unconditional surrender, setting a withdrawal date, and payment reparations, among others.  In exchange, the delightful Viet Cong would return some of our POWs.  Sounds "fair"?  The Left always has the strangest definition of fairness, n'est-ce pas?

Oh, I almost forgot!  Soon-to-be Secretary of State Kerry also bragged about his meetings with Madame Binh before Senator William J Fulbright hearings.  Fullbright, of course, had his own clandestine contacts with the Soviets and the KGB directly manipulated his office state.  Kerry and Fulbright aren't the only two Democrats to have conducted their own foreign policy in contravention to both Federal law and spirit.  The FBI of Teddy Kennedy demonstrates conclusively that he tried to undermine both Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan vis-a-vis the US government's relationship, position, and negotiations with the communist, totalitarian state.

2. Racism: 

Republicans, Conservatives, and Libertarians have always been, are, and will always be sexist, racist, bigoted, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, totalitarian theocrats, who marry their cousins, brush their "tooth," eat dirt and squirrels, speak in tongues, have an average IQ of a potted plant, and have family portraits that only a mum from Deliverance could love.
In contrast, Democrats, Liberals, and Progressives have never been, are not, nor will ever be sexist, racist, bigoted, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, totalitarian theocrats, who marry their cousins, brush their "tooth," eat dirt and squirrels, speak in tongues, have an average IQ of a potted plant, and have family portraits that only a mum from Deliverance could love.

You don't have to take my word for it.  Democrats and the state-run media complex will tell you that all of this is so.

Predictable History:

Unpredictable Past:

Let the record show, as the Congressional Record reflects the vote tallies on every piece of civil rights legislation speak for themselves and, for those War on Women types, you pay close attention, too:

Facts are very, very stubborn things.  Oh, and don't start with the tired, old "Southern Strategy" canard because, there, too, facts get in your way.  

Strom Thurmond, , Al Gore, Sr., Orval Faubus, William J Fullbright, Robert J Byrd, Fritz Hollings, J. Lister Hill, John Sparkman, John Little McClellan, George A. Smathers, Spessard Holland, Herman Talmadge, Richard Brevard Russell, Jr.,Allen J. Ellender, Russel B Long, James Eastland, John Stennis, B. Everett Jordan, Sam Ervin, Olin D. Johnston, Herbert S. Walters, Absalom Willis Robertson, and Harry F. Byrd, Jr. were all segregationists, who voted against the Civil Rights Act.  Contrary to the assertion made by the Left that Southern Democrats became Republicans after the "noble" Democrats from the rest of the country embraced civil rights, with the exception of Strom Thurmond, every single one of the aforementioned died with their Donkey boots on.    

Jimmy Carter won the ENTIRE South in 1976 a mere EIGHT YEARS after Nixon had supposedly crafted the Southern Strategy that was going to steal the region from the Democrats f-o-r-e-v-e-r, but it didn't even win him the South in 1968.  The former Democrat, George Wallace, took as many states.  Yes, Nixon won the South in 1972, but then he won every other state except for Massachusetts so that doesn't exactly prove the Southern Strategy theory. What Democrats refuse to admit is that the South - like most of the country except for Pauline Kael and her friends, apparently - was NEVER going to elect flaming progressive peaceniks like Humphrey and McGovern.  Democrats can and do win in the South.  Proggies do not.  Clinton won Louisiana, Georgia, Arkansas, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Kentucky in 1992. He won all of those except Georgia, which he swapped for Florida, in 1996.   Since the 1960s, there have been more Democrat governors in the South than Republicans and more Democratic legislatures.


Democrats also forget to mention that stubborn thingies like the fact that the old, Southern-fried Dixiecrat, John F Kennedy, from the old Confederate state of Massachusetts voted AGAINST President Eisenhower's Civil Rights Act of 1957, promised Governor John Patterson of Alabama, Jim Eastland (Mississippi), John McClellan (Arkansas), Sam Ervin (North Carolina) and Olin Johnson (South Carolina) via RFK that he would NOT seek civil rights legislation if elected, criticised Martin Luther King, Jr, opposed the Freedom Marches, and fired Harris Wofford as his Special Assistant for Civil Rights and chairman of the Subcabinet Group on Civil Rights in 1962 because Wofford was "too emotional" about the plight of blacks. 


In the Democratic Party, you can be a Southern Governor like Billy Jeff and never take one act in your 12 years to remove the confederate flag from your capitol and sign Act 985 making the birthdays of Martin Luther King, Jr, the preeminent leader of the civil-rights movement, and Robert E Lee, the general who led the Confederate army, a state holiday - TO BE OBSERVED ON THE SAME DAYAND STILL GET ELECTED President of the United States of America. Then, as POTUS, you can award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to a staunch segregationist like William J Fullbright.  Yes, you can!  And, you can do all of this and STILL be the putative first black President of the United States of America.

Why?  Because in the Democratic Party, the Bobby Byrds never cooooommmmmme hoooooommmmme tooooooooo rooooooooossssttttt!

Of course, if you are a Republican, don’t try this at home…or at the 100th birthday party of a former Democrat.  ‘Cuz, if you do, that would make you a RAAAAAAAAAAAAACIST!

3. Arming the Afghan rebels, including al Qaeda & Osama bin Laden, against the Soviets:

Predictable History:

Unpredictable Past:

4. Iraq: 

a) Obama opposed the war from the beginning;

b) Both Obama and Biden opposed the U.S. troop surge of 2007 by President George W Bush, which was widely credited with producing the relative peace and stability that enabled the U.S. exit;

c) Both Obama and Biden predicted - incorrectly - that the troop surge would actually worsen sectarian strife there;

d) Biden even proposed partitioning the country into three, separate nations; and


Per the NYT:

"All American forces were to leave Iraq by the end of 2011, the departure date set in an agreement signed by President George W. Bush and Mr. Maliki in 2008. Even so, Mr. Obama left the door open to KEEPING TROOPS IN IRAQ to train Iraqi forces if an agreement could be negotiated.

Convening a videoconference on Oct. 6, 2010, Mr. Biden and top American officials reviewed the options. The vice president favored a plan that would keep Mr. Maliki as prime minister, but which involved installing his main rival, Mr. Allawi, leader of the Iraqiya bloc, near the top of the pyramid. To make way for Mr. Allawi, Mr. Biden suggested that Mr. Talabani, an ethnic Kurd, be shifted from the presidency and given another position. “Let’s make him foreign minister,” Mr. Biden said, according to the notes of the meeting.

“Thanks a lot, Joe,” Mrs. Clinton said, noting that Mr. Biden had cast the Foreign Ministry as a consolation prize.

Mr. Biden also predicted that the Americans could work out a deal with a government led by Mr. Maliki. “Maliki wants us to stick around because he does not see a future in Iraq otherwise,” Mr. Biden said. “I'LL BET YOU MY VICE-PRESIDENCY MALIKI WILL EXTEND THE SOFA,” he added, he added, referring to the Status of Forces Agreement the Obama administration hoped to negotiate.

James B. Steinberg, the deputy secretary of state, questioned whether Mr. Biden’s plan would make the already inefficient Iraqi government more dysfunctional.

Admiral Mullen sent a classified letter to Mr. Donilon that recommended keeping 16,000 troops.

The attempt by Mr. Obama and his senior aides to fashion an extraordinary power-sharing arrangement between Mr. Maliki and Mr. Allawi never materialized. NEITHER DID AN AGREEMENT THAT WOULD HAVE KEPT A SMALL AMERICAN FORCE IN IRAQ TO TRAIN THE IRAQI MILITARY AND PATROL THE COUNTRY'S SKIES. A plan to use American civilians to train the Iraqi police has been severely cut back.  The result is an Iraq that is less stable domestically and less reliable internationally than the United States had envisioned."

In the end, Biden's plan was rebuffed by the Iraqis and the SOFA was not extended.

Remember when Iraq was a war of choice by Bush, a “bad war,” “waged for oil," and a "big scam in order to make Darth Cheney’s buddies at Halliburton rich"?

“Predictable History, Unpredictable Past”:  Explained

Predictable History:

Since the Left usually writes most of history, tails Walter Duranty wins, heads millions of Ukrainians lose…for a long while anyway.

Unpredictable Past:

“I’ve always been for the Patriot Act, indefinite detention, assassination of American citizens, the individual mandate, meddling in the affairs of other countries and did I mention we’ve always been at war with Eurasia or not."- President Barack Obama


Stalin used to “disappear” his enemies. Has anyone seen Nakoula Basseley Nakoula or the Benghazi survivors lately?

Yeah, Bush was “irresponsible and unpatriotic” for putting $4,901,104,747,205.59 on the “credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children” [he was - irresponsible, anyway] in 8 years, but Obama is “responsible and patriotic” for putting $5,710,983,151,721.98 on the “credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children” in less than 4 years because “we gotta spend money that we don’t have to avoid going bankrupt.”

Even Orwell couldn’t have foreseen this farcical nightmare.

The bottom line is that Republicans are going to get the blame no matter what happens.  Think about it.  Who has been getting the blame for EVERYTHING for the last 4 years?  Who is called the "DO NOTHINGS" when they've actually passed a budget and it has been 1,343 days since the Senate has passed one, as it is required to do by Federal law?

If you are going to get blamed, you might as well go down fighting.  It's better than being the loser, who ceded BOTH of its traditional core principles: low taxation and a strong defence.  You see, even if Republicans agree to everything that Obama wants, they will be the losers in two ways.  Not only will they have abandoned their fundamentals, but they will be portrayed as pussywhipped and Obama will run roughshod over them for the foreseeable future.  Meanwhile, the traitors in DC, MSM, hacks, and low information voters will be looking in the rearview mirror, patting themselves on the back for avoiding the tiny speed bump known as the "fiscal cliff" as they speed head-on into the real crisis, the debt wall.

The majority of Americans voted for Big Government.  Now, let them pay for it.
