Mark Levin has a point here:


You know I’m a little concerned, I see all these Republican operatives on tv and radio, they’re very giddy. Republican columnists, Republican websites, they’re all excited. Think they have Obama on the run. Think the Democrats are imploding. All giddy.

Well count me out. I’m worried. They have nothing to be giddy about. I’m worried, very worried, and let me tell you why.

You’ve got Obama being attacked for not being radical enough…and he’s a radical! And so the big media and Obama’s staff are positioning him as a centrist or a moderate of some kind. And he’s positioning himself as a populist. So the more they squawk on the nutjob left, of which Obama is a member, the more reasonable he’s going to appear. And this worries me.

One of the more important points he makes is that our leadership doesn’t appear to have the capability to get the message out. If this bad deal collapses is the Republican leadership positioned to point the finger at the people responsible, namely the Democrats?

Listen to the Socialist Keith Ellison:

I think we need to create a real crisis here so that the Republicans will have to answer for denying Americans unemployment benefits on the eve of the Christmas holiday. I don’t think they would do that. But we didn’t create that crisis. We let them off the hook in my opinion.

They will work hard to create this crisis and our Republican leadership better be able to get the truth out and not let slimy Democrats like Ellison shape the message.

Jim Demint is doing his part to get the message out. He sent out a press release that said he would not support this deal. Some of the reasons given:

  • 200 billion in new deficit spending
  • Extends the cuts for only two years
  • Increases the death tax from 0 to 35%
  • Dozens of earmarks for special interests

Earmarks like:

ethanol subsidies, tax breaks for film and television producers, give aways for Puerto Rican rum manufacturers, favors for auto racing track owners, and a hand out for businesses in American Samoa.

Good for him…but like Levin, I’m worried they aren’t up for the job. Hell, look how the Republican leadership is giving leadership positions to those members who shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near these chairs. Our leadership didn’t get the message apparently.

The American people didn’t rise up to give Boehner what he wants. They rose up to take their country back.
