There is a difference you know. Between the way a Conservative thinks about people, and the way a Liberal thinks about people. And in the latest speech that President Bush gave, and the answers to questions that he gave to the press corps, showed just that.
This time I think the president was giving the media a lesson that they needed, but one that they are too stupid to get the concept of……
President Bush on Saturday tried to pin the blame on Congress for soaring energy prices and said lawmakers need to lift long-standing restrictions on drilling for oil in pristine lands and offshore tracts believed to hold huge reserves of fuel.
“It’s time for members of Congress to address the pain that high gas prices are causing our citizens,” he said. “Every extra dollar that American families spend because of high gas prices is one less dollar they can use to put food on the table or send a child to college. The American people deserve better.”
Democrats say they are for drilling, but argue that oil companies aren’t going after the oil where they already have leases, leases where the liberals and the environmentalists would let them get by the way. So they say, why open new, protected areas? Democrats say there are 68 million acres of federal land and waters where oil and gas companies hold leases, but aren’t producing oil. Probably for the reason I stated above.
Bush said that Democrats are at fault and that “Americans are increasingly frustrated with Congress’ failure to take action.
“One of the factors driving up high gas prices is that many of our oil deposits here in the United States have been put off-limits for exploration and production. Past efforts to meet the demand for oil by expanding domestic resources have been repeatedly rejected by Democrats in Congress.”
Democrats and liberals, have for years sided with the notion that the American people are too stupid to take care of themselves and that they need a bigger more inclusive government to help them on their way. But in Bush’s statement during the questioning part after the speech, he was asked not only stupid questions but ones that showed where the liberal mindset is. Questions like this:
“Why have you not, sir, called on Americans to drive less and turn down the thermostat?” This question was asked by Mark Smith of AP Radio. In essence, he was asking the president, ‘Since the American people are too stupid to handle this themselves, why don’t you make them do it?” Here is what the President said, and this is a great answer, and shows the difference between the way Liberals think of Americans (they think we are stupid and need them to live) and the Conservatives and Republicans.
“They’re smart enough to figure out whether they’re going to drive less or not. The consumer is plenty bright, Mark. The marketplace works. People can figure out whether they need to drive more or less. They can balance their own checkbooks. I think people ought to conserve and be wise about how they use gasoline and energy, absolutely. But my point to you, Mark, is that, you know, it’s a little presumptuous on my part to dictate to consumers how they live their lives. the American people are plenty capable and plenty smart people and they’ll make adjustments to their own pocketbooks. That’s why I was so much in favor of letting them keep more of their own money, you know? It’s a philosophical difference: Should the government spend their money or should they spend their own money. And I’ve got faith in the American people.”
That my friends is a great answer. He has faith in us, the American people to do the right thing with our own money and our own lives. That is a classical example of the difference between the way a liberal thinks about the American public, and the way a Republican or Conservative thinks about them. The question that Mark Smith asked was stupid. But it showed just how the liberals think about us, the American people. They think we are too dumb and addle brained to think for ourselves and handle our own money. And it has been proven year after year that the government is far worse at spending our money than we will ever be.
If we do not change the way that our government does things from our military to our money, we are going to be heading to more than a recession, or a full scale war…..here on American Soil. We need to start listening to the difference in the way the Liberals and the Conservatives think when it comes to us people. Conservatives believe in the American public, and our ability to take care of business when it comes to our lives and our money. The Liberals do not. They think we are too stupid to take care of ourselves and our money. Wake up people. Before it is too late and we find ourselves in a worse situation. Remember the stock market crash of ’29? Think about it. Cause the market can fall one hell of a lot farther now, than it could have, or did then.
God Bless America…..
