Can You Say Lame Duck?!

    Albert Einstein, whom even the most zealous Obamatons would have to admit was at least a trifle smarter than their own icon, once defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

    Mr. Obama, welcome to your padded room. We trust you will find the straight-jacket more than comfortable.

    Even as Scott Brown was obliterating Martha Coakley in the race for “Ted Kennedy’s seat,” a typically petulant Barack Obama was sending out the word that he was right, the American people were wrong – and they had better change their ways.

    As the popular Washington newspaper Politico reported just before the results begin pouring in: “President Barack Obama plans a combative response if, as White House aides fear, Democrats lose Tuesday’s special Senate election in Massachusetts, close advisers say.”

    So, there you have it. And one is reminded of the late Dick Tuck’s concession speech after his loss in the 1966 California State Senate election: “The people have spoken, the bastards.”

    Make no mistake about it: The Coakley defeat in Massachusetts was an outright and utter rejection of Barack Hussein Obama and his entire leftist agenda. He can twist and spin it anyway he wants; he can bob and weave, shuck and jive, attempt to end run the legislative system, and attack the American people as much as his unrepentant heart desires.

    But, the fact is: Denial is not just the name of a river in Egypt

    Martha Coakley ran as an Obama Democrat. She embraced his every deficit spending spree, tax increase, and Big Government takeover scheme – just as she embraced the man, himself, when he journeyed north to give her his ringing endorsement. That endorsement was supposed to turn the tide. It was supposed to make people’s eyes once again glaze over and prompt them to pull the leftwing lever as they had done for the Wizard of Ooze barely a year ago.

    But something has clearly changed – and that something is the view the American people now have towards a president who openly rejects their values, cynically denigrates their mores, and angrily denounces their “trifling” objections to his overriding will.

    So, now, over the next four to five days, the world will watch while Barack Obama makes a decision that will fix his place in history: will he reorder his steps and work the people’s will – or will he double down on insanity?

    Let’s put it this way: If the smart money could talk, it would likely query, “Can you say “lame duck”?
