Liberals Ignoring 2010 Message From The People
They Need To Hear It Louder In 2012
By Dell Hill
each passing day it becomes even more clear that the President - along
with his party faithful in the House and Senate - learned absolutely
nothing from the 2010 elections. In fact, they’ve tried their very best
to negate the will of the people’s vote in 2010 to the point of trying
hard to give the President dictatorial style powers, thus offsetting
record breaking Republican Conservative gains in both the House and
the ignorance of the US Constitution is just mind boggling. Take for
example, today’s declaration by Representative Sheila Jackson Lee
Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tx)
From The Hill:
Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said Tuesday that President Obama
“absolutely” should use his executive power to continue the unemployment
benefits and payroll tax cut extension and said she hoped to discuss
the option with the White House later in the day.
is extraordinary, don’t get me wrong. But I’m feeling the pain of the
constituents I left [at] home,” Jackson Lee said, speaking on the
progressive Ed Schultz’s radio show. “I consider this a crisis. I
consider leaving Americans without unemployment insurance for January
and February a crime. I consider not extending the payroll tax cut … a
just one slight problem with that statement; the President doesn’t have
that authority and most high school kids know that. Obviously, Ed
Schultz doesn’t know it, either, because he never mentioned the fact
that what she was suggesting simply can’t be done. That’s not terribly
surprising because Schultz isn’t any smarter than Lee.
major point, however, is the constant clamoring from the Democrats to
encourage the President to “use your power” to get your way, just as Ms.
Jackson Lee did today. That’s totally contrary to what the people made
extremely clear in 2010. And the President has already used power that
many believe would be declared unconstitutional, should it be
challenged in federal court.
they’re really doing is stoking the flames of the TEA Party
Conservatives to not only react in 2012, but to react with an
overwhelming political strength that makes 2010’s results look meager,
by comparison. Perhaps they need reminding that the Democrats lost in a
major landslide; not only losing control of the House of
Representatives, but losing by an astonishing number. Republicans also
made major gains in the Senate.
idiotic statements (just one of many) like today’s will only provide
incentive to Conservatives to send representatives like Ms. Jackson Lee
to the back bench....so far back they’ll need a “mic check” to know
what’s going on.
