Sometimes the irony is just too delicious. John Kerry spoke out yesterday and, by his statement, proved how Obama got elected. Below is the quote:
John Kerry quote yesterday from the Boston Herald “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.
Out of the mouth of a cynical elistist leftist, this quote made me stop, drop, and roll on the floor with laughter. Senator Kerry just described the exact playbook by the leftists in government and the press. But, Senator Kerry is referring to whom in this quote? According to the Boston Herald article, he is referring to the angry voters connected to the Tea Party activists and the Republicans who are responding to citizens who are fed up. Senator Kerry further states, “I think a lot of the anger today - while it’s appropriate because Washington is broken - is not directed at the right people,” said Kerry. “Barney is prepared, as others are, to explain what we’re doing. I think when people hear the facts and they see what we’re doing, it frankly makes sense.”
Sure, Senator Kerry, people out here are just tickled pink with 14 Trillion in debt and the Obama administration nationalizing car companies, student loans, banking, medical care, and a national unemployment rate of 10%+, etc. Really? Sure, Senator Kerry, people are just hopping around with glee at Barney Frank's massive fraud with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Absolutely, Senator Kerry, let's hear how Barney Frank spins the Community Reinvestment Act implosion into a "good thing" for the country.
Senator Kerry says, "people are influenced by a single slogan rather than the facts or truth or what's happening." You mean slogans like, "Yes We Can?" Slogans like, "Hope and Change?" Slogans like, "Change we can believe in?" Would you, Senator Kerry, say the national media outlets, the press, the journalists who are supposed to be the government watchdogs gave us facts and truth regarding Obama?
In each joke there is a grain of truth that makes people laugh. After my fit of laughter subsided, I had to ponder the grain of truth in Senator Kerry's statement. The grain of truth in Senator Kerry's statement is that the electorate has been uninformed and duped by a conniving and sinister government and colluding press operatives. That was the plan. Evidently it worked in 2008. And now that the public has awakened to the propaganda so smoothly put in place by the elitist left, the patriotic tea party citizens are basically telling John Kerry and everyone else in government to go fly a kite. He doesn't like it that the tables are turning away from his favor?
The public is going around the national media outlets for information, going outside of the government for analysis of government activities. The public is clammoring for facts and truth. And it isn't going to be Barney Frank's spin or John (Teresa Heinz) Kerry's duplicitous pandering that people swallow.
