The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

So, should we be listening to Democrats who tell us that the Republican Party is being desstroyed or should we pay attention to a real enemy who detests us all with equal vigor?

From Ed Morrissey at Hot Air

Morrissey points to one congressional district where gloom and doom was predicted:

We heard a great deal about how MN-03 was a transitional district, and that Eric Paulsen was too conservative to win with its voters. Instead, Paulsen cruised to an easy victory despite his unapologetic embrace of conservative principles, especially on fiscal policy.

Captain Ed also points to what I am beginning to see as the double-fraud of the 2008 election. McCain desired to be seen as moderate republican.


Obviously, that didn’t help much in 2008, but part of the answer for that may be in the candidates fielded by the Republicans. John McCain did not identify with the conservative wing of the party at all until he needed them in 2008, for instance, although McCain has been a fiscal conservative during his Senate career. The GOP for the most part moved away from conservative principles in order to seem more moderate to voters, and got rewarded with a shellacking

This obviously failed. Interestingly, moderate GOP candidates – like Charlie Crist for the Florida senate – are finding some striking competition from more conservative candidates like Marco Rubio. Rubio has scored some impressive endorsements such as Mike Kuckabee and Jeb Bush, Jr. Its unlikely that the younger Bush would have taken such as stand without Dad’s blessing.

Still, the Rubio-Minnesota examples are providing ammo against GOP types who are saying the party needs to be more moderate and reach out to more groups. To use an Obamaism, this is a false choice. Witness the McCain defeat and the surge of true conservative candidates.

An informative post from Hugh Hewitt.

American is going to the failed systems of Europe and Canada after being deluded for over a decade of a health care “crisis”. There is and never has been a crisis in health “care”. The care we recieve from our Amrican system is the envy of the world. Its often expensive as are all things that are worth it. Crisis only exists in perceptions that American voters have. If this flawed perception mantains itself over the next few months through the gamed system the Democrats have put into place, perhaps our greatest freedom will be lossed – the freedom of choice in our own health.

From Rich Lowry via Jennifer Rubin.

Is is that Obama is so naive and race-based in his thought processes that he believes that all Hispanic-Americans feel the same way as Sotomayor. Apparently two Hipspanic judges at the same La Raza conferences immediately took issus with her comments. This will prove to not be helpful in her confirmation.

This quote in a La Raza piece and her membership on a council will pose problems for Sotomayor:

Senate Republicans investigating Sonia Sotomayor’s record are zeroing in on a speech she delivered in 2001 in which she stated her hope that a “wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences, ” including appreciation for Latin-American cuisine, “would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”


In some quarters this statement is considered racist. Her opinions have reflected such an opinion. Obama, democrats and the media will want to make her confirmation about her identity. It will be up to GOP senators of courage to engage Judge Sotomayor about her views and the conservative media to report.

A major story about the direction most Americans want to go is about to take place.

Although Democrats are already at it by defing republicans (it always amazes me that GOP senators never hit back) one GOP senator on Judicial is saying otherwise:

Still, Senator Charles E. Grassley, Republican of Iowa and member of the Judiciary Committee, noted that Democrats had used a filibuster to block the confirmation of Miguel Estrada, a Washington lawyer nominated by Mr. Bush to be the first Hispanic on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Senate Democrats who considered Mr. Estrada too conservative blocked his nomination after he refused to answer questions about his judicial philosophy at his confirmation hearing.

Mr. Grassley said that since Democrats had not paid a price among Hispanic groups for opposing Mr. Estrada, Republicans should not be held to a different standard if they opposed Judge Sotomayor.

“I get back to this: if it makes a difference for Republicans to vote against Sotomayor because it might cause us some problems with the Hispanic community, then the Hispanic community has a double standard, ” Mr. Grassley said. “How can any politician deal with double standards? You can never win. All I am asking people is to be intellectually honest.”

Intellectual honesty and democrats are an oxymoron.

Pat Buchanan thinks so.

While some are saying that the GOP should take it easy on Judge Sotomayor, this may not be the way to have the discussion before the American voters. It was only until the GOP went on the offense did they take over the Congress in 1994.

Perhaps it should be that conservatives and the republicans should take the current examples of Cheney, Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh and play hardball with Democtrats. They must be effective as it is they whom are demonized with such vigor.

Many think so.

Crist is an estanblishment candidate from the John McCain mold and does not have the kind of support throughout the state that many assume. Marco Rubio is a rising GOP star. Cornyn needed to stay out of it.

UPDATE: Well, yeah. Mike Huckabee and Jeb Bush, Jr, have endorsed Rubio.

From James Lewis writing in PJM From Lewis:

We know that during the Bush administration the upper levels of the CIA and the Democrats deliberately set out to poison American public opinion against the president, working day after day for seven long years to destroy his credibility. They received enthusiastic support from Europe, from the corrupt Jacques Chirac in France and the sleazy Gerhardt Schroeder in Berlin. Islamists from Detroit to London and Pakistan supported endless media slanders against the United States. Saudi billionaires presumably bought the European media, just as Saddam bought European influence before the U.S. invasion of Iraq through the oil-for-food scam.

The Left around the world took after George W. Bush and after seven years succeeded in making its accusations stick with about half the American voters. So Obama got elected to the loud hosannas of the Left. No doubt Islamists were delighted to see the GOP defeated as well. Pelosi became speaker of the house on the strength of that campaign.

Pelosi, Democrats, the MSM and Obama are counting on this just going away, but it won’t. No one can tell that big of a lie – not even a Dem icon like Pelosi – and just get away with it.

It remains a MSM pattern to trot out former Republicans to bash their party. Megan McCain has thankfully gone silent. But now that Colin Powell is on record of endorsing what has turned out to be be the most leftward-leaning president in history, he’s on Sunday TV saying he’s still a Republican. What a crock. And what a disappointment to the American spirit Powell has become. He’s clearly most about Colin Powell and the Democrat shills of the MSM are happy to tool him.
