(2011) Musical Chairs in Store for State of the Union Address

On January 15, 2011

In November 2010 a restless citizenry put Congress on notice. In the wake of unconstitutional government mandates (Health Care) and Federal over-reach of regulatory government agencies by Obama appointed czars, the Congressional status quo was upended to reflect a more balanced representation of conservative candidates.

In other words, we threw the bums out.

The clear purpose of “We the People” was to provide conservative Congressional leaders the opportunity to undo the damage inflicted upon the nation, the economy, and the Constitution by radical progressive community organizers strategically placed in the White House, Congress and our regulatory agencies. We provided conservatives the opportunity and we expect them to fulfill their obligation.

Conservative Americans are not interested in politics as usual. We did not elect new representation with the mandate to get along, submit to arm-twisting, or negotiate the future of our nation. In fact, we elected them to force the issues, stand firm, and stubbornly refuse to play the bi-partisan smoke and mirrors game of public relations and politics as usual, especially when it comes to democratic buffoonery and bluffs. The people dealt Republicans a good hand. We expect our conservative players to go all in.

Progressives have experienced a resounding failure in their policies. Forced into damage control mode, democrats are reaching deep into their bag of tricks. Their motivations are myriad but certainly include the deliberate concealment of their weakened position with a calculated management of public perception.  (Case in point, Obama’s changing hair color here.)

How then can Democrats create the perception of strength when in fact they are considerably weaker since the peoples mandate redistributed power in Washington? For one, they will take advantage of the short memory span of the electorate. The new face of democrat bi-partisanship will be utilized/propagandized to erase the memory of damage inflicted on our nation by their total disregard and rebuttal of conservative efforts to cross the aisle in the 111th Congress. It is to their advantage to blur current party lines, a change in tactic from their previous stance when the democrat controlled Congress took great joy in forcing liberal agendas down our throats.

An effort is now underway to accomplish this end, proposed by Democrat Senator Mark Udall of Colorado. He has proposed a new seating arrangement be implemented during the upcoming (January 25th) State of the Union Address. For the sake of a more unified perception of our governing body, he suggests the aisle between the left and right be temporarily eliminated by seating republicans and democrats evenly throughout the chamber.

Known legislators signed on for this strategic perception management media event.
Sen. John McCain, R-AZ
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY
Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn
Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska
Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-ME
Sen. Susan Collins, R-ME
Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-NH
Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-MD

Called a “symbolic gesture of unity” Obama press secretary Robert Gibbs supports the proposal. Republican strategists might consider Gibb’s historic disdain of “unity” as they entertain the fantasy notion of the leopard changing it’s spots.

Republicans must avoid such deceptive trickery and do the job the people sent them to do. They must stand unified TOGETHER as a party. The people’s mandate was not to unite with the Democrats but to lead our nation out of the abyss created by the democratic majority in the 111th Congress.

Republicans won the House majority and must not participate in democrat illusions and delusions, nor their attempts to divide and conquer.

Repeal healthcare, depose the czars, reduce the deficit, create a pro-business environment, stop entitlements, and enforce constitutional limits on big government radicals. The childish democrat games of musical chairs will not solve the problems faced by this nation.
