It’s beginning to feel like the hot August of 2009, again.
You can feel it. A growing discontent with the top-down, big government, free-spending, patronizing, arrogant ways of Washington, D.C.
If that were all there were, it would merely be another year.
I’ve compared the situation to placing a lid tightly on a boiling pot. Rather than engaging in open debate, Democrats sought to demonize law abiding citizens. The reaction was not violence, but verbal confrontation at town halls.
Aided, abetted, and in some cases instigated, by groups like Think Progress and Media Matters and their followers in the left-wing blogosphere, Democrats have launched a wholesale attempt to isolate and ostracize those who disagree with the Obama agenda. We are seeing it daily in the ridiculous attacks on Sharron Angle and other candidates challenging Democratic leaders.
The problem for the Democrats is that poll after poll shows that the people they seek to ostracize are, in fact, a majority of Americans who have seen the failure of the Democrats and are frustrated with the disconnect.
How many Democrats will hold town halls this summer?
