The Idiocy Defense

Me to disobedient child, “Did you do that?”

Petulant child, “I don’t know.”  “It wasn’t me.”  “It was my sister.”  “Oh, I didn’t understand that I wasn’t supposed to do that.”

See, that is what a child does.  He or she denies that she did anything wrong.  He or she then deflects, lies and claims no knowledge of the offense.

Does that sound like anyone that you know?  In my house, we call this “Obama-ing.”  Maybe, I should starting calling it “Pelosi-ing” or “Reid-ing.”  It would fit just as well.

Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have all built successful political careers on the idiocy defense.  Not knowing anything has really been successful for them.

reid obama pelosiPelosi famously said that we have to pass the bill (Obamacare) to find out what is in it.

Now, after Jonathan Gruber, the architect of Obamacare has been repeatedly caught on tape calling American voters “stupid” she feigns ignorance of even knowing who he is!

And, they call us stupid?  How does she possibly think she can get away with this?

Oh, yeah.  Liberals can get away with anything.  They can even lie and call voters stupid and nothing will ever happen.

We are not stupid, we knew all along that adding a layer of government to anything would never reduce its cost, only raise it.  When clear, concise points like this are enunciated by conservatives, logical, reasonable tolerant liberals shout:

“Racist!” “Terrorists!” “Arsonist!” “Stupid!”

We voted and the country has turned red from sea to shining sea.  Did this wake-up call do anything to change our liberal progressive leaders?

Nope.  We have petulant children running the country.

It is hurting hard-working, ordinary Americans.  Now, amnesty for illegal aliens is being shoved down our throats.

Amnesty for millions of illegal aliens will hurt the middle class the most.  The middle class is being destroyed by Obama’s punishing taxes including Obamacare (remember the $9,000 deductible) and paying for benefits for all of those illegal aliens.  Or worse, middle Americans will lose their jobs to all of those illegal aliens.

Obama is a petulant child, but he does know what he is doing, just like my children do.  He knows that his policies are hurting middle-class Americans.

But, we wouldn’t let our children get away with being bad by pretending ignorance.

Will our liberal progressive leaders continue to get away with the idiocy defense?
