Not grandpa's Demo-Dope Party

I’m pretty much done arguing policy with the libs I know and meet. I resort to this simple question, would your grandparents recognize today’s Demo-Dope party?

New tapes on the Kennedy’s reveal how strongly anti-communist they were. Can that be said about the P-BO, who actually brought a communist - Van Jones - into the White House as his green jobs Czar?

President Kennedy reduced the top marginal tax rate from a whopping 90% DOWN to 70%. Instead of lowering rates, the P-BO wants to raise them and is on a class warfare binge that would make John Edwards’ “two Americas” baloney look sensible.

When Kennedy was president, defense was 52% of spending and 9% of GDP. Today under the P-BO, it’s 19% and 5% of GDP with another half a trillion in cuts imminent when the super committee fails to reach agreement.

President Kennedy embraced technology and spurred America’s space program pledging to reach the moon in ten year’s time. Today under the P-BO, NASA is in a shambles reduced to a Muslim outreach program and lying about climate change. As far technology goes, the P-BO, perhaps in keeping with his father’s Muslim heritage, condemns technology blaming ATMs and grocery scanner for his pathetic record on jobs.

On his inaugural, President Kennedy delivered this famous line:

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

Can anyone, even the most ardent P-BO support, seriously suggest that the P-BO has it in him to stand in front of the Knesset, or anywhere else for that matter, and deliver such a straight forward unambiguous message of support to our friends and warning to our enemies?

While abortion hadn’t yet risen to the acid test for Demo-Dope candidates that it is today and there are few if any public comments from President Kennedy on the subject, he did nominate pro-life justice Byron White to the Supreme Court. That move alone would disqualify him to run for any public office as a Demo-Dope today.

Can you imagine President Kennedy letting Hubert Humphrey LBJ get away with calling fellow Americans terrorists?

Ronald Reagan once famously said, “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. They left me.” They have long ago left reasonable Americans behind.  So rather than argue who started what wars for what reasons or who added what to the deficit, it comes down to a simple question, would your grandparents, or even your mom and dad recognize today’s Democratic Party? 
Different note same theme: Bill Clinton is coming to IN for a speech. It’s all over the radio here. It got me to thinking. Here’s a disgraced ex-president injecting himself into every conversation with ABSOLUTLY NO SHAME for what he put the country through. It’s just one fund raiser after another, one speech after another, showing up where he has no business showing up like Shanksville, PA. Meanwhile M. Lewinsky has faded away into space. She has not even written what could be a best selling tell all book. Why?

Conspiracy theory #5: Bill Clinton has raised and continues to raise tons of money for the Clinton Library, or as Rush calls it the Clinton Library and Massage Parlor. I’m thinking some of that money has found its way to Monica. In my mind, there is no other reason why she wouldn’t be telling her side of the story loudly on every available forum.  Or maybe she got a double does of shame and humility recieving what should have gone to Bill as well as her own.
