Really, what does it take? How bad do things have to get? How much worse do things have to get? How big of a metaphorical 2×4 upside the head will it take to penetrate your comforting fog of denial?
Hey Republicans getting ready to fight every new proposal for change… Despite the fact that every single thing you have done for the past eight years has been proven to be WRONG…Not mistaken, not miscalculated, not mis-properly implemented…WRONG. Badly wrong, in theory, in philosophy, in practice, and in reality. WRONG. Just plain wrong on every conceivable level. You want proof?
LOOK AROUND YOU. And name something that is going right. Just one thing, anything, anything at all that is going well, that is working, that has not failed. Name ONE. You have been in power for eight years, you have gotten to try out all of your pet theories, you have gotten to strong arm the entire country into your image….and NONE of it has worked. And let’s get one thing straight right now. YOU did this.
And while we are at it…Hey DiFI and Jello Jay and “Fighting” Harry Reid and every other Democrat that is still in the thrall of (or complicit with) the deposed and disgraced Bush Administration…hey all of you other Dems who did not fight back…
WAKE THE FUCK UP!!!
Open your eyes.
And see what you….yes YOU….have done. Open your eyes, look around, and then….look in the mirror.
You see that failed economy and millions of your constituents broke, jobless and foreclosed onto the street, homeless and hopeless?
YOU did that.
You see those hundreds of billions of OUR (NOT your) tax dollars being printed up and floating out the door to the folks that on your watch ruined the economy through government sanctioned greed? The American economy has been assaulted and is in real peril of failing. And taking the world economy down with it.
YOU did that.
You see that war in Afghanistan that we are losing? Do you see, regardless of the propaganda that we are “winning,” that destroyed and highly unstable sovereign nation of Iraq that YOU invaded and decimated for no good reason? Do you see all those maimed and dead Iraqis …and American soldiers?
YOU did that.
Yes…that’s right….YOU did that.
You. Open your eyes. Look around. Things are bad. REAL bad. Mind-numbingly bad. Historically bad. Epically bad.
Not hypothetically bad. Not potentially bad. REAL LIFE, SERIOUSLY BAD. Real people leading real lives are really, really suffering bad. Those people have just voted the stupid ass you followed and all of his policies (and a bunch of YOUR ilk) out. And voted change in. They have rejected YOU as much as they possibly could. Why. you ask? LOOK AROUND at what YOU have done. Everything is just immensely fucked up.
Because of YOU. Because you supported and or capitulated to a President who points to a FAILED policy (that would have made things even worse) of attempting to privatize Social Security as his major domestic accomplishment. YOU authorized the war that has helped to bankrupt us. YOU let Wall St. run amok. YOU.
Wake UP! Look around. Look in the mirror….and realize just ONE fact, in the sea of your apparent rationalization and denial. This is NOT business as usual. We are in two wars and the worst financial crisis since the great depression and have become torturers.
YOU did this.
So either Wake The Fuck Up or Shut The Fuck Up.
Either lead, (which you have patently proved you are incapable of) follow (in other words….STFU) or GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE WAY.
Your day is done. You blew it and we are all suffering because of you. And no amount of obstruction or whining is going to change that …or redeem you.
