Pep TalkPep Talk 2.  Pep Talk 3:

The debt ceiling fight and “deal” were emotional, and many of you have been left feeling let down or betrayed.  Relations among people who agree on the goal but not the strategy have been strained.

But keep things in perspective.

Just months ago Obama was demanding a multi-trillion dollar “clean” (that is, completely unaccountable) increase, and then an increase with a trillion dollars in new taxes, and then taunting you to call his bluff, and then you were called extremists and hostage takers and terrorists by the mainstream media and pundits and politicians …

… and hobbits …

Sure, it wasn’t everything you wanted, and maybe not even most of what you wanted.  But you changed the direction of the debate to your terms.

So while it is understandable that you don’t view the debt deal as a win, don’t view it as a loss.

Think how they must feel today knowing that they no longer are on the side of history… and we are.

So shake off the gloom, get your asses in gear, get over it, and get to work continuing to fight the worst government policies “since the Great Depression.”

We have no other choice.
