With only a few days left before the mid-term elections, John Kerry gave us his interpretation of the events that appear to be leading to what could be one of the most historic elections in American history, an election that could derail the Progressive agenda that’s been in overdrive since the messiah became President.
Did he blame the failure of the bailout to turn the economy around and reduce unemployment? Did he admit that Progressives in Washington made a mistake when they crammed Obamacare down the throats of Americans against their overwhelming objections, using back room deals and possibly unconstitutional payola to cram it down our throats?
Did he express empathy for voters who were duped by the “Hope and Change” message spewed from the mouth of the chosen one only to be fed a mega-dose of politics as usual, along with a heaping helping of socialist-based policies? Did he blame the record spending which gave us record deficits and larger government?
Naw, the “Honorable” Senator Kerry sees things from a much higher and more dignified perspective.
You see, according to Johnny-boy, it all boils down to the fact that Americans are just too stupid to know any better and have been duped by Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck into a state of “know-nothingism.”
“It’s absurd. We’ve lost our minds,” said a clearly exasperated Kerry. “We’re in a period of know-nothingism in the country, where truth and science and facts don’t weigh in. It’s all short-order, lowest common denominator, cheap-seat politics.”
Of course, being too stupid to know any better isn’t enough to fully do the trick. Stupid people need “obstructionist” Republicans to complete the picture.
To underscore his claim, he said statistics show Republicans had blocked Senate business with filibuster tactics more during the past 18 months than the period between the end of World War I and the Apollo moon landing in 1969.
“The obstructionism is stunning,” Kerry said, noting the country still lacks an assistant treasury secretary. “I think America really needs to know more of this kind of tactic and how it’s shortchanging us.”
This is nothing knew for the failed 2004 Presidential candidate. It was just a few weeks ago that he said something very similar in an interview with the Boston Herald.
Boston Herald: A testy U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday blamed clueless voters with short attention spans for the uphill battle beleaguered Democrats are facing against Republicans across the nation.
“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,” Kerry told reporters after touring the Boston Medical Center yesterday.
I wish I could aspire to the heights of the Kerrys and Obamas of the world. But alas, I am nothing more than a Conservative ignoramus. . . .
. . . . an ignoramus that’s going to do all he can to take back America from elitist progressives like Teresa Heinz’s husband.
How about you?
