These derisive words by Barack Obama directed at Scott Brown’s vehicle tell worlds about the left’s arrogant, immoral outlook on America and Americans. I’m sorry Mr. Obama, but in the present economy that you created, “everybody” can’t buy a truck because millions of people don’t have jobs. This statement, made in Massachusetts during the recent special Senatorial election, was an arrogant, elitist slap at the blue-collar Republican candidate, and an upper class statement about truck drivers. Massachusetts voters were influenced by a number of things as they gave Teddy Kennedy’s senate seat to a truck driving Republican, including the takeover of healthcare, controlling our lives with cap and trade and being soft on terrorists.
But the left just doesn’t get it. America is a free country and we aren’t agreeable to our elected representatives telling us what we must do and what we must not do, and threatening to imprison us if we don’t do what they tell us to do. And we’ll vote and demonstrate against fascist policy when we see it. The big problem for leftists is that they’ve been able to incrementally sneak their socialist policies into law a bit at a time for the last 50 years, and now that they’ve tried to enact the whole enchilada in one fell swoop the people are steadfastly against it, and the left is confused.
Obama is fond of telling us that change is hard and we must bend to his ideas or remain in the past. But Mr. Obama had better learn that freedom is not an outdated idea and doesn’t need changing, and he’d better heed his own words and learn to be a leader instead of a ruler, because we aren’t going to stand for his heavy-handed approach to governing.
Thanks to Massachusetts for showing the rest of the nation the way, and for halting the liberal/progressive steamroller that is the Obama administration. And Mr. Obama, please stop already with the southern preacher voice when you’re attacking other Americans. You’re a Columbia grad after all.
