Feels like it
Lou Holtz after Obama’s inauguration: ‘I’m done, finished, the country’s over with, we’re not doing this again!’ ~ Daily Caller
And if John Boehner is the only Republican left trying to talk you out of departing the field then you need to run, not walk away from the GOP. Obama bent Boehner over. There’s no sugar coating where we are at right now. It doesn’t matter what it was he said, the optics of Mrs Obama rolling her eyes dismissively at Boehner says everything anyone needs to know about how much respect he commands. He needs to read Niccolò Machiavelli’s The Prince
Here is what you are dealing with, dude:
“Men in general judge more by the sense of sight than by the sense of touch, because everyone can see but few can test by feeling. Everyone sees what you seem to be, few know what you really are; and those few do not dare take a stand against the general opinion.”
― Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince
The majority of Americans have bought the nice guy image of Obama. You can’t fix that. You can’t fight that. Score One.
“There is nothing more important than appearing to be religious.”
― Niccolò Machiavelli
In spite of all evidence to the contrary in his personal writings and actions, people believe that Obama believes in a higher power. Score Two.
“the ends justifies the means”
― Niccolò Machiavelli
Obama recognizes no laws, no rules. He fully demonstrates the idea that it is easier to ask for forgiveness after than to ask for permission before. He ain’t asking for forgiveness yet because no one has called him on the carpet. The things he has done, with no one to stop him? Score three.
With all due respect to Glenn Beck, while the left may be playing by the Rules for Radicals play book, Obama is also employing Machiavellian doctrine to stomp all the hell over the GOP. Boehner is a lost cause at this point. But let’s give it one last shot, shall we?
Mr. Speaker. it’s time to take some advice from the Anita Blake’s in the arena:
“She stared up at me, and there was something in her eyes, something that said we finally had an understanding. She was afraid of me, and sometimes that’s the best you can do with people. I’d tried kindness. I’d tried friendship. I’d tried respect. But when all else fails, fear will do the job.”
― Laurell K. Hamilton, Narcissus in Chains
We need you to stop being polite, stop trying to be more likeable and popular than the dilettante-in-chief. You can’t. You are from a working class family. It’s time to get off your ass and get mean.
Time to stop playing golf and living the DC country club dream and get serious. Your party is leaving you.
