David Brooks, the resident "moderate" Obama-loving columnist at the New York Time CRACKS ME UP. This guy is the poster child of Rockefeller Republican buffoonery.
His latest column, busting on the Tea Partyers, has a particularly happy line:
"The tea party movement is a large, fractious confederation of Americans who are defined by what they are against. They are against the concentrated power of the educated class."
I love how the Eastern Manhattan elites..of all political persuasions, assume a mentally superior air to the rest of us unwashed masses that don't live on the Upper East Side, Hollywood, or Capitol Hill.
I of course, would be happy to place my academic chops, life experiences, military service and commons sense in a fair and balanced debate with this bozo. Ivy League educations clearly aren't worth the money anymore.....
Here's more of his goodness:
"The educated class believes in global warming, so public skepticism about global warming is on the rise. The educated class supports abortion rights, so public opinion is shifting against them. The educated class supports gun control, so opposition to gun control is mounting."
NEWS FLASH BOZO, Global Warming is FAKED! Seriously, isn't scientific inquiry important? The science settled? I don't think so.
Abortion rights, well there's that pesky NATURAL LAW thing that ruled Western Civilization until the DISASTER of the 60's and the Warren Court happened.
And...those pesky gun rights...yea that darn CONSTITUTION, yep that document by those dead white slave holders....only worked for 200 years until those same disastrous 60's.
This moron is what was wrong with the so called "moderates" in the Republican Party...you are either conservative or a Democrat...moderates are just liberals too cowardly to admit they lean left.
The Tea Party is indeed skeptical about Obama and his minions for the simple reason that they can do MATH. Billions and Trillions of unfunded social spending, ridiculous bailouts of the auto companies (and unions), bottomless funding of Fannie and Freddie to subsidize mortgages for folks who can't pay them. Combined with utter weakness and appeasement to our enemies abroad.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist (a club Brooks definitely is not in) to figure out what's going wrong with America...the Tea Partyers get it, some Republicans get it...even a few Democrats...but obviously the editorial staff at the NYT doesn't....
But, hey, they're the EDUCATED CLASS.....bahhhh, as my father would say: "They don't know their ass from a hole in the ground"
