"Only in politics do people root for bad news... You pay more, they're licking their chops." (President Obama, saying that Republicans will offer only bumper sticker politics)
One only needs to return to the 2008 presidential campaign to recognize that bumper sticker politics is not limited to the domain of a Republican campaign. Goodness! Obama bumper stickers are still plastered all over the place. Remember "hope & change?"
Speaking at the University of Miami on energy and the economy, President Obama stated that only a "long-term" strategy can bring down rising gas prices.
Thus far, the president's strategy appears to be ridiculing the ideas that conservatives and Republican candidates bring to the table. That, along with shooting down oil production and delivery within American boundaries.
Once again, liberals have no clue what conservatism means. Conservatives root for success. Conservatives want all Americans to have the opportunity to determine their concept of success and to be able to pursue it. Liberals, on the other hand, seek a lowest common denominator economy. They like to call it "fairness." In the real world, it is extortion, bullying, and theft.
The farther away we move from our Founder's roots and closer to the land of left-believe, the more economic inequality, misery, and chaos we experience. Root for bad news? Libs have been perfecting that divisive tactic for decades now.
