from the American Spectator:
The American Way: Looking Forward to a Year of War Games
This is what we have in store for 2019. Happy New Year!
The politicians always begin every argument, every TV and radio interview, every speech with the same lie: “The American People are too smart to…”
Halt the presses! Reality time: No. They. Are. Not.
The American People chose to be led by Obama for a Wasted Decade. “Too smart”? Yeah, by half.
Frankly, immediately before The Obama Wasted Decade, the American People narrowed down the choices, from among some 200 million possibilities, to George W. Bush and John Kerry, with Papa John Edwards in the wings. In other words, we American People are a good people, a compassionate people, a pretty tolerant (and oft times too tolerant) people. But a people who are “too smart”? Well, maybe — but only if we compare Americans to everyone else out there: Venezuelans, the French, denizens of all the other continents where life has been detected, though not necessarily intelligent life.
And so we enter Year 2019 anno domini (aka the second half of Year 5779 since Creation’s first week) And the American People — a club of which we all are proud to be members, at least in terms of compassion and when comparing to everyone else in NATO (because it only gets worse after that, and Turkey is pretty bad, too) — have bestowed on our nation a new Government to be conducted in tandem by (i) Donald J. Trump as chief executive and commander-in-chief, (ii) Nancy Pelosi as the Speaker of the House whom Democrats swore not to elect, and (iii) Chuck Schumer as Nancy’s Houseboy and caddy. This is what we have in store for 2019. Happy New Year!
Call it “War Games” because 2019 really is going to be about playing games, not legislating, not leading. It will be about speechifying great values — freedom, liberty, health, fairness for all, truth, justice, and the American Way.
