Allen West slams tea party 'schizophrenia'

I think I no longer have a favorable opinion of Allan West. It seems to me that it didn't take him long at all to turn into just one more Go-Along-to-Get-Along Republican; and Congress is already full of that sort.

The Laura Ingraham Show - Allen West slams tea party 'schizophrenia'

As a nation and polity, we have already spent our grandchildren's futures, And so, the choice before us now is not between "Support John Boehner's Plan to Spend Our Great-Grandchildren's Future, Now" versus "Support the Pelosi-Reid-Obama Plan to Spend Our Great-Great-Grandchildren's Future, Now". The choice is between doing the right thing or doing the wrong thing.

Conservative Americans, at the behest of our supposed leaders, have spent the past 50 or 60 years "declaring victory" each time the votes in Congress were there to effect a 'compromise' with the totalist demands of the "liberals" and their leftist puppeteers. That is, we have spent 50 or 60 years telling ourselves that "we must be thankful for what we can get" when the people *we* elect to office make sporadic and half-hearted efforts to slow down, but never to reverse, the implementation of the irrational and ultimately destructive-to-the-nation demands of the leftists.

And thus, the nation has spent the past 50 or 60 years lurching toward the edge of the cliff that will be our doom. And our "conservative leaders" tell us this whole time to rejoice and focus on all their good work of sometimes converting full-steps toward the drop into half-steps.

Well, the cliff-edge is here at our feet, now; if we don't full-stop and back away from the edge, then we will go over the edge. Whether the next step is a full-step or a half-step, we will go over the edge.

There is a saying, "Don't ascribe to malevolent intent that which can be explained by incompetence". That’s generally a good outlook … yet, there comes a point when the distinction is pointless, for the result is malevolent regardless of intent.

Now, for sure, most Dems and RINOs don’t intend to destroy the USA (though, the leftists for whom they act as beards do), but destruction of the USA is the inescapable effect of their folly.

I see this compromise being hailed as a victory on the grounds that it doesn't (immediately?) increase any taxes.

As much as I enjoy seeing liberals angry, I'd rather it be with an actual victory.

How many times have we seen this movie? "We promise, double-cross out hearts, that *this* time, we'll let you reduce spending, somewhere, in ... oh, ten years."
