Rush made a good point today. The elitists and leftists in Washington think the T.E.A. parties are over. THEY WISH!
They will be there when it matters for the next election. In the mean time, they are raising families, working and going to ball games where the national anthem is sung:
"The liberals think they've done it. They think they've defeated the Tea Party and defeated the conservatism that roared through last election...with Tucson! That's what Tucson was in their minds: An opportunity to defeat Republicans, conservatives, and the Tea Party. And now everybody's sitting together at the State of the Union, so were Doug Brinkley -- noted presidential historian, now at Rice University -- says the American people have had it. The American people tired of this. Doug Brinkley is essentially saying the American people agreed with the media and Obama and everybody else that it was "rhetoric" that caused the shooting, and that the American people don't want any part of it.
What's changed? Did the Republicans lose control of the House after the program yesterday, before I came back? Did that happen and nobody told me? Well, what has happened here? What is Mr. Brinkley talking about? The "game changer"? "It really was the American people saying, 'We're tired of you politicians name-calling and screaming at each other.' That shrill Tea Party, hard-right Republican attitude I don't think will fly in this season." Wha...? Okay, so they're back. The liberals are back, the Democrats are back because of Tucson. What makes 'em think that? No, I'm serious. What makes them think that? (interruption) Right. The way the Republicans are acting. The way the Republicans are acting is what makes the Doug Brinkleys of the world think that the Democrats have scored a victory with Tucson.
Now, think of that: "The Democrats have scored a victory with Tucson," and they clearly think they have. And the only reason to think they have is by virtue of the way the Republicans are acting. (sigh) I got a note from a friend from Hawaii over the weekend, somebody who wanted to share some thoughts with me. Here's the note: "Recently there was a video of a young girl singing the National Anthem. The microphone malfunctioned and she was left singing with no sound." You've seen the video, right? "The people in the arena came to her side and finished the song for her and with her, as proud Americans. Now, if there was no need to sing, I wonder how many people would have belted out the words with the same pride. Americans need to know that their voice matters.
"We need to find a way to have 'em realize the importance of coming to the side of America. Our voice is being silenced, and there is a need to stand behind the country. Now, the Republican National Committee could run an ad using the video and call out every voice to be heard, the importance of the 2012 elections. Without a microphone, we can still be heard." The symbolism of that video is what got to him: A little girl singing the anthem, her microphone goes out, and yet the crowd took over. A bunch of people that did not have microphones nevertheless were heard. "Americans will do it if they know there is a need. The time is now. You are a great advocate. Thanks for leading. Let me know where to take the idea or to further the thought process."
Now, this is inspiring, 'cause this is somebody out in Hawaii who is about as far away from all this as you can get, paying attention to it, and seeing symbolism and optimism for America in that video episode. And we really can't afford to be the silent majority any longer, and I don't know that we actually are. Not with the Tea Party -- and believe me, the Tea Party's not going away. The Tea Party is not vanishing, despite all of these "optics" and despite all the psychological efforts of the left to make it look like the Tea Party has been defeated and like the election never happened. "You know, the Republicans really didn't win anything."
That's the psychological ploy that's being attempted here. "Republicans didn't win anything. Obama is the focus of the show. He's got the State of the Union. Obama's gonna give us the agenda; Obama's gonna tell us what to do. Republicans? Who are they? Paul Ryan? Oh, you mean that monster that wants to cut everybody's Medicare and Social Security? Oh, yeah, that guy. Yeah, well, he wasn't elected to anything. Tea Party? Ha! What Tea Party? I mean, the people the Tea Party elected are sitting with us at the Obama speech tonight." So there's a clear psychological ploy, and I warned you people about this. Ever since the election I have warned that this would be the effort: To make it appear like nothing of any significance happened in November. "
Sorry lefties... we're on to you and you can think you've fooled the media, but you can't fool us any more... we've seen the commie-marxist manifesto-plans behind YOUR curtain. You can't hide it any more!
