There is No Alternative to President Obama and the Democrats!
He has brought about monumental changes for the American People
On Egotist and Fools Errands
There are rumors abroad that Dr. Cornell West AKA “Professor Longhair” and his sidekick Tavis Smylie, a verbose bald heated charlatan, are planning a demonstration to urge people not to support the reelection of President Obama. Say what? The last thing we need is another idiot movement among the hapless left to start some sort of Third Party, or even talk about running somebody against President Obama!
Both of these are self-defeating strategies, and I regard such talk as nothing more than a retreat into fantasy by a confused and impotent left that refuses to face the real problem in American politics: A Republican Party that hates the working class and is openly contemptuous of the public interests…yet millions of white workers voted to put them back in charge of the House of Representatives where all revenue bills must originate. This has not only brought the massive plans for reshaping American society to a halt, but has put him into a position where for the first time in American history the US will default on its debts!
Thomas Jefferson, whom I regard as the most thoughtful of the revolutionary Founding Fathers, put our problem succinctly in a prescient observation offered up two centuries ago. “A democracy cannot work with an ignorant electorate,” he argued. “They will elect and return the worse people to power.” Yet West and the confederacy of well credentialed dunces who egg him on like a deranged Greek chorus, think our problem is President Obama?
Try as I might, I cannot fathom a syllogism that explains how a reasonable person can arrive at such a conclusion. How a Princeton Professor, who is actually smart enough to belong to that august assemblage of outstanding scholars, could arrive at this conclusion. The Grand Obstructionist Party is wreaking havoc on the nation and they attack the President?
Because of their scorched earth policy the President is faced with signing a bill that cuts trillions of dollars from the federal budget with no tax increase for the rich, or face the first default by the United States government! That’s the choice folks; I’d like to know what any of you all knowing readers would do. But I warn you: If you do not answer that question at the top of your argument I shall immediately dismiss you as a fool or a charlatan!
Among the fanatics in the House are deranged whackos, like Michelle Bachman, who have threatened to bring impeachment proceedings against the President if he invokes section IV of the 14th Amendment to guarantee the nation’s debt, and thereby avoid the catastrophe of default. I think the reason that the loud mouths on the left who are dogging the President don’t want to discuss this is because they know that they bear some responsibility for the Republicans retaking the House only two years after they wrecked the economy!!!
Instead of doing the only thing that makes any sense in terms of realpolitique, support the President – who is the most progressive politician that has any chance of being elected in America today and return the House to the Democrats – the ‘wise guys” on the left help to confuse and demoralize people to the extent that they decided to sit out the election.
Not only did they not work to help elect Democrats as they had two years earlier when they made history…many of these nincompoops didn’t even vote! Thereby assuring a Republican victory and the predictable horror show that followed! Now the know nothing blabbermouths on the Left, led by the likes of Professor Longhair and his Greek Chorus, are at it again!
This is god damned foolishness…and if there is anyone who thinks it is anything but damn foolishness I dare you to tell us what it is!!!!!! Cornell West really ought to sit down and shut tha fuck up!!!!! He has yet to apologize for his role in electing Bush, yet has the unmitigated chutzpah to present himself as a reliable political theorist in the present crisis.
I have posted a piece the Commentaries I wrote ten years ago when Cornell was advising people to vote for Ralph Nader instead of Al Gore – see “On choosing the Lesser Evil” on this blog. The danger I warned of then came to pass. George bush was elected and everything went to shit!!!!! Since I have written on the sins of the Bushmen ad nauseum, I shall not debate them again here.
Anyone who needs instruction on the Presidents outstanding achievements should read “Civilization or Savagery” on this blog. Since we are still suffering from the decision of the left supporting Nader however, I felt compelled to write this commentary because I’m beginning to hear whispers of this kind of POLITICAL IDIOCY again! And I shall stay on the asses of the verbose and reckless charlatans who are spouting it!
In an attempt to explain the embarrassing and perplexing actions of Dr. West, some people are speculating that West and Smylie are being paid by corporate interests to attack the President. I tell them they are paranoid; that Dr. West would never party to such a scurrilous deal. I argue that West is not an evil quisling but a deluded megalo-maniac! But I quickly point out that this is a distinction without a difference, because fess Longhair couldn’t be of more assistance to the Tea Party agenda if he were a paid agent!
