I usually choose my lib-quote of the week from among the most outlandish statement I come across from the left. And there are always plenty to choose from since those living in the land of left-believe consistently display enormous gaps in critical thinking and/or seek to purposely deceive their true intentions from those not paying attention.
Still, every once in awhile, a liberal slips up and tells the truth.
The dynamic duo of Princeton University Dr. Cornel West and PBS talk show host Tavis Smiley have embarked upon a "poverty tour." They are very disappointed with our president. There's too much poverty in America... so much that it could "lead to UK-like riots." [Nothing like being extorted. "Fork it over, folks with stuff. If you don't, the folks without the stuff they want are going to loot and burn and destroy your stuff and threaten your lives. So there are your choices: give us our stuff that we haven't earned or see your stuff destroyed."]
Keep in mind President Obama's most recent complaint against Congress. In fact, he reiterated it just this Saturday. Speaking about Congress in his weekly message, our president told Americans:
"I don't think it's too much for you to expect that the people you send to this town start delivering. And if you agree with me - whether you're a Democrat or a Republican or not much of a fan of either - let them know."
Those nasty T.E.A. Party Republicans; they won't compromise. If you want to discover the magnitude of infinity, next to the federal deficit, try counting the number of times the word "compromise" has been tossed around during the debt-ceiling debates and their aftermath. In fact, the refusal to compromise - meaning raise taxes in the current context - has been branded as nothing less than terrorism by those liberal masters of civility.
Now comes along Mr. Tavis Smiley on his "poverty tour" who slips up and gives us liberal truth and this week's featured lib-quote:
I know what the president is up against, but I think too often he compromises, too often he capitulates. I think the Republicans know that. I think they laugh when he's not around.
So the president's complaint - the dissatisfaction with which Americans are supposed to bombard their Representatives and Senators - is that there is not enough compromise.
But Mr. Tavis Smiley, champion of liberal truth that he is, tells us that the problem is too much compromise.
The only time that liberals are interested at all in compromise is when Americans begin recognizing and experiencing the consequences of liberal ideology and behavior. Then, and only then, do liberals value compromise because without it, they would become extinct.
P.S. Here is an interesting side note: Mr. Tavis Smiley's reported net worth is 10 million dollars. I wonder how much he left behind in each of the 19 cities he visited.
