During a discussion of current events with a very knowledgeable colleague, we turned to the subject of just how many in Congress are realizing that they were deceived by Barack Obama and that we are in deep trouble with this president, as opposed to those who advocate his policies, are so narcissistic that they’ve no real concern for the direction in which he is taking this nation, or are mind-blowingly stupid.
As unlikely as it may seem, we have learned over the years (the last few in particular) that there are indeed some lawmakers who are mind-blowingly stupid. There are also those who have been in Congress for so long that diapers may be in order, if they are not utilizing them already. Some I believe are simply intellectually indolent and don’t keep themselves informed. It’s just a job to them – a job they can become quite wealthy doing but don’t feel compelled to do particularly well.
There are, of course, lawmakers in the Democratic Party who are lifelong progressives, or Marxists, if you prefer. If you’re interested, there’s an extensive dossier on each and every one of them in Trevor Loudon’s book, “The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress.” Despite having become a powerful force within the party, they by no means represent the majority of our elected officials.
No, we’re talking about Republican officeholders who are now starting to use words like “orchestrated” and “criminal” to describe the administration’s actions. We’re also talking about Democrats who, while they may not be employing these terms as yet, they’re certainly thinking them. Believe it or not, there are liberals in Congress who are not progressives, who did not wish to see America’s economy in this downward spiral, our national security compromised, our stature on the international stage devastated and emerging tyranny.
It has become apparent to those on the House Ways and Means Committee, for example (whose members heard testimony this week on the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative nonprofits), that this administration is essentially a criminal enterprise, probably qualifying for prosecution under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). This will never happen, since our oleaginous attorney general, Eric Holder, is the valued and powerful consigliere of the crime family – but there’s more than one way to skin a cat, or a pack of communists, as the case may be.
