It’s hard to keep my mouth shut.
But I have. For good reason.
Anything I say is going to be taken as a “Yes -(wo)Man” argument.
You see there’s this.
And also this.
And also this.
Which leads us, to this.
You don’t have to like it all. You don’t have to die on the sword. But NOTHING will get done if you continue your grandstanding.
Remember compromise? Remember how change takes hard work? Remember how we’re working with each other and everyone else?
Yes, I said everyone else.
I didn’t vote for President Obama so he would act like President Bush. I never expected him to take his SuperMajority (which should come with a cape) and shove things through – other side, rest of the country, be damned.
That’s not the man we elected. If you somehow missed that message perhaps you were too busy looking at your own agenda while the rest of us were paying attention.
I heard ‘you’re either with us or against us’ once before. It sounded arrogant then and it sounds just as arrogant coming from the ‘cowboy’ left now.
You can’t change the game unless you’re playing it, and you…my brothers and sisters…are pushing us all to sit on the bench. There’s plenty of blame to go around, sure. We all, White House included, shoulder some. However let’s learn to point those fingers elsewhere.
I’m not asking you to shut up, I’m just asking you to be smart. Take your liberal, elitist, Prius driving, college educated, latte’ sipping mouth and use it to critique while standing strong with your party.
Unless, of course, you really think that 3rd party thing is viable. Then by all means…don’t let the door hit you in the ass.
