Illinois Democrats run the White House and Federal government. From President Obama to David Axelrod to Rahm Emanuel, they are in control.
My list doesn’t include lesser known Valerie Jarrett and higher profile Arne Duncan, Secretary of Education and former head of the Chicago Public Schools.
Obama ran on “Hope and Change.”
What seems humorous now is how one of his campaign slogan was
“Change You Can Believe In”
The Illinois Dem Obama team went with vague promises.
It was lathered in positive language of “we need to go forward” and “Hope and Change.”
It was going to be unlike other presidencies.
It was going to be post partisan and post racial – both.
To be analogous, the group from Cary 26 making demands of the school board while dangling $4.3 million out there had similar characteristics.
They didn’t tell the truth.
They also didn’t contribute one dime of their own money or actually collect any money from anyone else.
It was all one big public relations charade.
In McHenry County, liberal Dems like Melissa Bean and Jack Franks got elected pretending to be someone she and he are not.
Bean’s votes for the public option for healthcare, then Obamacare, higher energy taxes (tax and trade) and massive debt stimulus spending are about as liberal as you can get.
Franks’ liberal votes are public record, including his automatic ones for whatever the teachers’ unions are demanding.
Franks’ co-sponsoring the law that made red light cameras legal was Democrat greed to collect more money from people, without calling it a tax.
The common denominator between the group “The Soar to Higher Ruse Heights Foundation” and Illinois Dem politics is blatant pretense.
If the individual(s) have to tell a lie, untruth or more to create the pretense, do you think they even care?
When caught they plan on calling them “misunderstandings.”
A lousy economy and unemployment in Illinois over 10% is no misunderstanding.
There is no misunderstanding how the individuals in the Cary District 26 group didn’t bother to contribute a dime or twenty bucks apiece to their own cause. No money in the bank. Just vague promises of pledges from unknown sources.
Illinois Dems have decided there is no war on terror, only an overseas contingency operation.
A fizzling economy with sustained high unemployment is a “soft recovery.”
We also, according to Janet Napolitano, head of Homeland Security, don’t have terrorism anymore, just man-caused disasters.
If you don’t agree with this mislabeling, Obama and Illinois Dems have coined the phrase how you have “untrained ears.”
Dems didn’t bailout big overseas banks, but dealt with “toxic assets.”
I can’t recall Obama and the Dems campaigning on giving Deutsche Bank $2 billion of
But they did.
When small business owners can’t get a loan, it’s their own fault they don’t “Sprechen Deustch, nicht wahr?”
We can tell when the soaring Cary group play the “Sprechen Sie Deutsch” charade, just as Illinois Dems have for many years, can’t we?
