Two buffoons on CNN just credited Dave Brat’s trouncing of Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor on three conservative talk radio hosts. “They basically drove the election,” said former Obama Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter.
Republican strategist Tim Phillips rebutted that stupidity saying, “This race was about one thing. People are sick and tired of Washington D.C. And 34,000 plus Virginia Republicans and conservatives were able to register their complaint with what’s happening in Washington.”
Democratic strategist Kiki McLean poured more gas on the stupid fire saying, “The Republican party in Virginia has now nominated a guy who’s going to be even more obstructionist than Eric Cantor.”
But of course there are two problems with this line of “logic.”
1) The founders framed the current system of American government in the hopes that there would be more gridlock, not less. Lawmakers in Washington D.C. “doing more on behalf of the American people” is why we’re drowning in debt and dependence on poverty programs is off the charts.
2) Liberals like Cutter and McLean can’t fathom an educated electorate willing to vote for less government intervention in their lives. This is because the regnant belief among modern American Liberals is that whatever programs exist, should always exists. And those programs should be more robust because people are just too stupid do better for themselves than what a bureaucrat can.
