WHAT DO YOU EXPECT OF A MODERATE? | 2003-03-15
Well, gee, who would have guessed that the first President Bush, a professional moderate, would sell everybody out the second he had used them?
Republican moderation has always been an active, open lack of principle. Moderates say they are being Shrewd because you get votes by going halfway, no matter what they believe. Moderates use the stupid conservatives to give something real to liberals so liberals will love them.
Who could have guessed that a person who openly declares a political principle like that, might just sell YOU out?
Former president James Earl Carter from Georgia denounces the United States and our enemies are his friends. He loves Castro. He constantly declares that America is evil.
The way Carter got started in national politics was by denouncing Southerners and segregation. Who could have guessed that the guy who started by selling out his own people would be selling out America when it makes him look good?
Bush Senior was a professional moderate Republican. Jimmy Carter was a professional moderate Democrat.
Does anybody notice a pattern here?
Moderates shout from the rooftops that their entire reason for being is to sell people out. When they sell us out, we all shout "DUHHH!" again.
I am probably the only person who notices a pattern here. If anybody else does, they never mention it.
