Refusing to Take Responsibility for Your Decisions Isn't "Conservative"

“It’s an impossible theme to talk about with Obama in the background. Obama just makes it impossible to talk rationally in that area because he is so deeply into class warfare that automatically you get an echo effect. … I agree with you entirely.”

- A True Conservative, explaining how Barack Obama forced him to say things he doesn't really believe.

If you think it's hard to be a real conservative with Obama lurking in the background, how will you do when he's facing you onstage during a debate?

And they ask me why I drink.

I once had the same problem. Only in my case it was rationality lurking in the background, but it was over it fourteen months later - to the day.

I refuse to allow Rationality anywhere near me.

Rationality? During the primaries? Not a chance... :-)

Posted by: Pogue at January 12, 2012 06:56 PM

Good point, Pogue :p

I knew there was a reason I refuse to take primaries seriously...

Posted by: Cassandra at January 12, 2012 10:18 PM

Rationality is relative. And relatives rarely are.
Just my three cents.
Keep the change.

That cigarette you're smokin' 'bout scare me half to death

Open up the window, sucker, let me catch my breath

Mama told me not to come

Mama told me not to come

She said, "That ain't the way to have fun, son"

Newt's PAC ad is blastin', someone's knockin' at the door

I'm lookin' at my party's chairman - she's passed out on the floor

I seen so many things I ain't never seen before

Don't know what it is - I don't wanna see no more

Mama told me not to come

Mama told me not to come

She said, "That ain't the way to have fun, son"

Posted by: olga at January 15, 2012 08:46 PM

2 years to the day, eh?

I have missed VC.

Posted by: Tom at January 15, 2012 09:42 PM

I have missed you all too, Tom.

Posted by: Cassandra at January 16, 2012 09:33 AM

Oh, come on, we all know why you drink.

Is it because she believes that the pomegranate martini industry is too big to fail?

I just KNEW that if I kept trying this site that sooner or later I would see something.

Welcome back to our lives, Cassandra.

Posted by: Rex at January 20, 2012 01:06 PM

Thank you :)

Posted by: Cassandra at January 20, 2012 02:12 PM

Yea, she's BACK!

Posted by: htom at January 25, 2012 11:31 PM

Odd...

I had given up on your return; I really had.

Still, I would come back from time to time like you might look at old pictures. You don't think that the pictures can transport you back to that time, but you can't resist.

I am very pleasantly surprised. Now I get to read through a month's worth of what I can only assume are gems.

Welcome back Cass. You can't imagine how much texture you add to our lives.
