Yesterday, we got kind of down and dirty about the President and his whole "chess game" approach to things. Admittedly, we were probably harder on him than some right wingers. And with good cause.
I hear the anxiety of the callers who see what is happening in our state, and feel frustrated about how little ability there is for us to stop to corruption from passing into law, and being signed by the Puppet Pat McCrory. Indeed, last week, had Thom Tillis called a vote on the anti-Constitutional Religion Establishment proposal, the State Houses would have passed it, and Puppet Pat would have signed it. Despite it being against the Federal Constitution. That's how far we have sank. They are too right wing and too dumb to not pass something that has been outdated since before the Civil War. Sad state of our state.
So, I feel the pain of the NC people, as we all watch this circus of "screw you all" parade their clowns leading a stampede of out of control elephants.
However, to keep perspective, the GOP, nationally, are struggling and failing (despite the spinless Dems giving them more power than a dying Giant should still have.) Trends show that the GOP are fractured and falling apart and poised to loose elections coming up in 2016 and beyond. Well, unless they change their ways. Though changing their ways is now driving away people in their own partym which will only contribute to the eventual final nail in the GOP coffin.
We can be happy to watch their demise nationally, but we should fear their fast power grab locally and on a state level. Some of them are smart enough to know that their future power is not national, but if they act fast and radically, they can hold power within states. And that's what has happened in NC (as well as Wisconsin, Michigan and other states).
What I am getting sick and tired of is the cool handed approach of the President. Time is far past for him to take the kid gloves off and to open a can of whoop ass, and start delivering on promises and rhetoric. Time is running out, and we need to start seeing the effects of the "long game" come to fruitition.
Time to get your inner Samuel L. Jackson out, Mr President. Past time.
