Check out the political shellacking my Democrats took this week from the American voters.
From Denny: America's cartoonists have this succinct way of capturing the national conversation, condensed and crystallized into images. Every week I go looking to see what their "hot buttons" are especially in the fields of politics and government.
This week was a troubled one for both political parties. The Democrats were trounced at the polls with their own Democrats turning traitor and voting for the worse Republicans. The Independents abandoned the President and, the two combined, gave this White House a "shellacking" in Obama's own terms.
The Republicans are under the mistaken impression they have a mandate. No, they don't. What they do have is their marching orders to start getting things done for the people. If they don't they will be turned out yet again.
What I found disturbing this week, while watching the news, is the terrified look on the faces of the Republican House leaders. Clearly, they were shaken. Looks like the Wall Street, Big Bank, Big Money, Big Business guys called them up and said, "Look, we have invested billions of dollars in Republican campaigns and attack ads. We now expect you to destroy what's left of Obama and get government restraint taken off us." And the Republicans suddenly realized they can no longer bluff and bullshit their way through this now. They must deliver. They also know they will not be able to deliver. The Republicans sold their souls to Satan and now Satan has come to collect their souls.
If the Democrats have an ounce of sense - and, at this point in the game I've begun to wonder if they do any smarts after two years of stupid is as stupid does - they will re-elect Nancy Pelosi as she is a premium fighter. Every Democrat must fight these Big Business interests of which the Republicans do their bidding. If the Democrats and the voters do not fight these Big Money interests what's left of the economy will surely implode. Who wants to end up like the old Soviet Union: in tatters economically for decades and then run by gangs? We in America are well on our way to descending down to that level of devastation if the Democrats don't "grow a pair" - along with a steel spine - and fight this coming catastrophic event.
Check out this week's political "shellacking" thanks to the political lunacy and poor leadership of Axelrod. Kick this guy out the White House. Hell, kick this guy out of the Democratic Party.
