View Full Version : A Democratic Party that no longer has any standards

The Democratic Disgrace

Every job has a minimum requirement. The absolute very least that anyone can do without being considered a complete and utter failure.

The minimum requirement for a Commander-in-Chief is to stick around when an American diplomatic mission is under fire. Obama flunked even this minimal requirement by going to sleep and then flying off for a fundraiser in Vegas.

The minimum requirement for a Secretary of State is to at least pretend to care why such an attack took place. Hillary Clinton failed that minimum requirement by declaring that it didn’t matter why the attack happened.

The minimum requirement for a Vice President is to avoid becoming a national embarrassment. Biden has failed miserably at that.

The minimum requirement for the country’s leading environmentalist is to refrain from selling a television news network created to promote an environmental message to one of the world’s leading petro-tyrannies. And Al Gore failed there.

Obama, Clinton, Biden and Gore couldn’t even meet the lowest possible standard for their positions, but that’s not a problem in a Democratic Party that no longer has any standards.

America’s newest Secretary of State, John Kerry, was wrong about every historical development since he became involved in politics. If there was a matter of international politics that Kerry got involved in, he was bound to come in on the wrong side.


While the Bush Administration had appointed qualified men and women to head up the country’s diplomatic efforts, Obama appointed senators who had tried and failed to become president as some sort of bizarre consolation prize.

Kerry joins a Cabinet full of washed-up and scandal-prone figures like Attorney General Eric Holder, whose career should have ended after his role in the Clinton Administration’s Marc Rich pardon scandal, and Arne Duncan, who was rewarded for his failure to reform Chicago schools with the highest education job in the country. Then there’s Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius who violated the Hatch Act by campaigning at a government event.


There is hardly anything that a Democrat can do wrong that will force him to resign, barring the combination of severe mental breakdowns and outrageous criminality, as in the cases of Congressman David Wu and Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. Racist jokes, like those made by Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden about Indian convenience store owners, go virtually unnoticed, as do bizarre remarks indicative of mental illness or a frightening degree of ignorance.

Congressman Hank Johnson used a House Armed Services Committee hearing to ask an admiral whether Guam might tip over if too many Marines land there. Congresswoman Shirley Jackson Lee delivered a speech on how well North Vietnam and South Vietnam were getting along. Johnson followed that up by calling for a new constitutional amendment to control free speech and Jackson did her part by accusing the Tea Party of being the new KKK and demanding that black people’s names be represented in the naming scheme for hurricanes.

And Johnson and Jackson were not even the worst members of the Congressional Black Caucus. That particular honor belongs to Congressman Alcee Hastings who bears the unique distinction of being one of only eight Federal officials in American history to be impeached and removed from office. But that hardly slowed down Hastings who ran for Congress and has been sitting there for twenty years and racking up even more scandals.

Hastings however faces stiff competition from Congresswoman Maxine Waters who was chosen to be the ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee despite helping her husband’s bank obtain millions in bailout money. But Waters still lags behind Barney Frank, the former ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, whose reward for letting his home be used as a brothel was being given oversight over the nation’s financial services industry.

Ethics investigations have become routine and toothless. The Democratic Party has accepted corruption as the new normal. >>>

The Democratic Party has become comfortable in its disgrace. It no longer even bothers to deny the charges; instead like Obama or Clinton it shrugs off each charge and asks what difference does it make?

Hillary Clinton’s question at the Benghazi hearing gets right to the root of the problem with the Democratic Party. For her, what happened at Benghazi made no difference because she knew that she could not and would not be held accountable for it. That arrogant attitude has been the public face of the Obama Administration in response to every scandal.

When you are a Dem minimum requirements, having a police record, and no experience doesn't count. All that matters is that you have that 'D' after your name.

30 years ago what this administration is trying to do to this country and what will be proposed tonight would have been relegated to the fringe kooks of the party.

But over time the kooks ran any Dems with any sense of decency out of the party.

Now they are aiming to do the same to the Republicans.

They won't stop until there is ZERO opposition anywhere to what they want to do to us.

There is hardly anything that a Democrat can do wrong that will force him to resignThe old saying "Never get caught in bed with a live boy or a dead girl"...I doubt even that would get Barry out of office. The live boy part would probably get him applauded.

The only thing more disgusting than a republicrat... is a democrat.

20 Of The Most Embarrassing Moments In The History Of The Democrat Party

For example, one will virtually never hear that the Palmer Raids, Prohibition, or American eugenics were thoroughly progressive phenomena. These are sins America itself must atone for. Meanwhile, real or alleged “conservative” misdeeds — say McCarthyism — are always the exclusive fault of conservatives and a sign of the policies they would repeat if given power. The only culpable mistake that liberals make is failing to fight “hard enough” for their principles. Liberals are never responsible for historic misdeeds because they feel no compulsion to defend the inherent goodness of America. Conservatives, meanwhile, not only take the blame for events not of their own making that they often worked the most assiduously against, but find themselves defending liberal misdeeds in order to defend America herself.

The Trail of Tears (1838): The first Democrat President, Andrew Jackson and his successor Martin Van Buren, herded Indians into camps, tormented them, burned and pillaged their home >>>

Democrats Cause The Civil War (1860): The pro-slavery faction of the Democrat Party responded to Abraham Lincoln's election by seceding, which led to the Civil War.

Formation of the KKK (1865): Along with 5 other Confederate veterans, Democrat Nathan Bedford Forrest created the KKK.

The American Protective League and The Palmer Raids (1919-1921): Under the leadership of Woodrow Wilson, criticizing the government became a crime and a fascist organization, the American Protective League was formed to spy on and even arrest fellow Americans for being insufficiently loyal to the government. More than 100,000 Americans were arrested, with less than 1% of them ever being found guilty of any kind of crime.

Democrats Successfully Stop Republicans From Making Lynching A Federal Crime (1922): "The U.S. House adopted Rep. Leonidas Dyer’s (R., Mo.) bill making lynching a federal crime. "Filibustering Senate Democrats killed the measure."

Japanese Internment Camps (1942): Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt issued an executive order that led to more than 100,000 Japanese Americans being put into "bleak, remote camps surrounded by barbed wire and armed guards."

Alger Hiss Convicted Of Perjury (1950): Hiss, who helped advise FDR at Yalta and was strongly defended by the Left, turned out to be a Soviet spy. He was convicted of perjury in 1950 (Sadly, the statute of limitations on espionage had run out), but was defended by liberals for decades until the Verona papers proved so conclusively that he was guilty that even most his fellow liberals couldn't continue to deny it.

The Bay of Pigs (1961): After training a Cuban militia to overthrow Castro, Kennedy got cold feet and didn't give the men all the air support they were promised. As a result, they were easily defeated by Castro's men and today, Cuba is still ruled by a hostile, anti-American dictatorship.

Fire Hoses And Attack Dogs Used On Children (1963): Birmingham, Alabama's notorious Commissioner of Public Safety, Democrat Bull Connor, used attack dogs and fire hoses on children and teenagers marching for civil rights. Ultimately, thousands of them would also be arrested.

Stand In The Schoolhouse Door (1963): Democrat George Wallace gave his notorious speech against integrating schools at the University of Alabama in which he said, "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever."

Escalation In Vietnam (1964): Lyndon Johnson dramatically escalated our troops’ presence in Vietnam while he simultaneously put political restrictions in place that made the war unwinnable. As a result, 58,000 Americans died in a war that ultimately achieved none of its aims.

Chappaquiddick (1969): The Democrats’ beloved "Liberal Lion" of the Senate, Ted Kennedy ran off the road into a tidal pool with passenger Mary Jo Kopechne in the car. Kennedy swam free and then spent 9 hours plotting how he would reveal the news to the press while she slowly suffocated to death.

The Iranian Hostage Crisis (1979-1981): 52 Americans were held hostage by the government of Iran for 444 days. After Jimmy Carter’s disastrous, failed rescue attempt, the hostages were finally released after Ronald Reagan's inaugural address.

Bill Clinton turns down Osama Bin Laden (1996):

Bill Clinton was impeached (1998): Clinton became only the 2nd President in American history to be impeached after he lied under oath about his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

America loses its AAA credit rating (2011): The United States was first given its AAA credit in 1917, but it couldn’t survive Barack Obama's record breaking spending. In 2011, America lost its AAA credit rating.
