A fantastic new video from the folks at KeepAmericaSafe.com, a group founded by Liz Cheney, Bill Kristol and Debra Burlingame. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — hypocrisy is currency for this administration and the Democratic Party. As we push forth toward the 2010 mid-term election, we must take advantage of every single opportunity to highlight their own statements, couple those statements with their nonfeasance and malfeasance, and show the American people what kind of people really have been running the show.
Hypocrisy crosses even the deepest of entrenched party lines. Consider the case of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford. How many times did I praise him here at America’s Right? He was a breath of fiscally sane air in an overly polluted, spendthrift American political culture, and was on my short list for presidential contenders in 2012. Even in the hours before his surreal confession of an extramarital–and transcontinental–affair, I gave him the benefit of the doubt. But the second that he proved himself to be a complete hypocrite, all I could do was shake my head and pray that he would just go away.
This president has a problem, in that it was his words and not his accomplishments which got him elected. And while that may have been good enough for a Bush-weary American public last year and a left-of-center Nobel Prize Committee last week, it’s not going to do the trick in 2012. His words have been countermanded and contradicted by his actions. On national security. On transparency. On health care. On the economy. On the overall role of the federal government.
I applaud the folks at KeepAmericaSafe.com because they’ve stood up and highlighted the overt hypocrisy of this president and his presidency. I hope they keep it up.
