The double standards of the reactions from liberals and Democrats to Republicans are endless. Imagine if you will that Romney won the election. Imagine that Romney passed Romneycare Nationwide and the roll out was filled with horrible code that prevented people from buying healthcare, all while spending over 600 million on it, and people were losing their healthcare, and Romneycare cost so much more than what they had. Imagine Romney broke his promise “If you like your healthcare you can keep it”. Imagine that Romney changed laws that Congress passed without having Congress approve the changes. Imagine if Romney sealed all of his records of education and all history. Imagine Romney gave The Muslim Brotherhood 8 billion dollars, and then it was discovered that Romney’s step brother was in charge of the finances and funding of the Muslim Brotherhood. Imagine that his DOJ was sending weapons to Mexican drug cartels and they killed a boarder guard. Imagine that the NSA under Romney was caught spying on the German Chancellor Merkel, as well as all the people of our land. Imagine under Romney’s administration Christopher Steven’s death and the brave 3 that died with him could have possibly been saved, but a “Stand Down” order was issued. Imagine that under Romney’s administration he had hundreds of visits by IRS superiors, then it surfaced that liberals were targeted by the IRS. Imagine Romney spent 800 billion dollars to stimulate the economy, but ended up only benefiting Crony Capitalism companies, and failed green energy companies like Solyndra. Imagine that Romney wanted to take money from liberals and share it with conservatives. Now, there are many more “Imagine if you will”, but let’s call it quits here.
Now, just take any one of the above. Just one. The outrage by the left would be so loud, so fierce, so filled with venom by the liberal citizen, to the liberal media, right on up to the liberal politician. Romney would be facing Impeachment years ago. He would not have won a second term, and comedians in every comedy club would be making Romney jokes each day. The political pundits would be labeling him as the worse President since Grant. His wife would be dragged through the mud for wearing expensive outfits… Oh wait, that already happened during the campaign. Regardless that Michelle’s was more expensive, but that was OK by the left.
This Bazarro double standard applies today, in reality with Obama as our President. If a Republican puts forth a topic to consider? it’s bad! If a Democrat puts forth the same topic to consider? It’s good.
Paul Ryan’s plan to reform Healthcare during Obama’s first four years had 700 million taken from Medicare. The Liberals went nuts over that offensive suggestion! What does Obamacare do? The same thing! Oh, yes it does! In Obamacare, Medicare money for about the same amount that Ryan suggested is taken from Medicare to help finance Obamacare. CLAIM: By doing so, Medicare will be funded by doing away with fraudulent claims and corruption. Really!?
Take the lefts outrage of the price of Gasoline under Bush. They demanded he release the reserves, blamed him for allowing the price of oil to skyrocket during holiday and popular traveling months. Peaking at $3.60 on the national average, but when leaving the office down to $1.84 for a gallon of gas. Now? Currently in my town gas is steady at about $3.35 a gallon. Since Obama has been in office it has been over 3 dollars a gallon consistently. Is the left outraged over this? No. In fact, the price of gas is not even an issue with most people today. They have grown used to it. Regardless with higher gas prices, so goes higher food prices and more.
Most recently, Democrats are calling for delaying the individual mandate which is exactly what outraged liberals when Republicans suggest it. Yet because Democrats are now calling for it, liberals are silent. Hence, Bad if Republicans want something, and OK if Democrats want the same thing.
With this administration there are endless examples of this double standard. How can a liberal mind rationalize this? They can’t. All they know is what is spoon fed to them by the media. All of MSNBC, and much of NBC, CBS, ABC and much of CNN, New York Times, etc. all teach the liberal Lemmings that Republicans do not care about them. This is not true of course, but they have been brainwashed, much like other people have been in other countries throughout history. In short, if a Republican says the sky is blue, but Obama says it is red, the liberal will not believe their own eyes. They will believe it is red. We are witnessing the liberal willing to sink with the Obamacare ship instead of admitting to it’s failures. The world sees it in other countries. They now laugh at us (Americans). However, the liberal still feels Obama has respect in the world, only because they themselves respect him, and that is all that matters. Life always looks great with rose colored glasses and a veil over ones eyes.
Liberals also show another Bizarro world trait. Besides the double standard, they love the “Oh no, it wasn’t us, it was YOU!” game. With the debacle of Obamacare’s website, and more expensive plans, the liberal is spinning the failure as it being the Republican’s fault. This game is not new. It has been played out for nearly five years now. Much of it being pinned on Bush, or the Republican House members. Even when you wouldn’t think it. Pundits on MSNBC during Putin’s making a fool out of Obama’s blurry crossing the red line of Syria’s use of chemical weapons, had the nerve to say it was Bush’s fault! HA! To sum up, if it succeeds? All hale Obama. If it fails? it was the Republican’s fault.
What is the next double standard for this administration to put on the table? who knows, but they are so frequent we will not have to wait long before it arrives, and another, and another, etc. With an administration that calls Christians and Tea Party members enemies of the country and terrorists (As taught to the Fort Hood soldiers) we have become an America now built on Bizarro ideology. What is wrong is right, and what is right is wrong. My father fought this in World War II with a gun in the army. Now we are about to lose (if not already) our country without a shot being fired. God bless America (now more than ever).
