On the Right Side: Losses loom for left-wing lemmings

Just a little while ago the left's beloved leader, Barack Obama, said, "Everything there is to say about health care has been said, and just about everybody has said it."

Oh, do I wish you would take your own advice and simply shut up, then. Maybe, in addition to this tactic, you should also listen.

The public is against the present health bill proposal by a three-to-one margin, but you still don't listen. The Republicans have come up with plenty of common-sense alternative proposals, and you don't listen.

Only your subservient mainstream media and your delusional left-wing followers hang on your every word. The best term to describe these mindless followers would be lemmings.

The Encarta Dictionary would define the term as a subarctic rodent, but a more apt description is the definition of a lemming as a doomed conformist. "A member of a large group of people who blindly follow one another on a course of action that will lead to destruction for all of them."

Can't get a more perfect description than that.

Nevertheless, all their leader needs is a microphone, a teleprompter, the mainstream media and a selected group of followers, and he is so caught up in his own self-grandeur that he is oblivious to everything else.

On second thought, maybe we should just let him rant away. The 2010 elections will prevent this radical and the leftist, secular leaders in both the Senate and the House from causing any more damage.

There are many House Democrat seats that are vulnerable, some estimate as many as 60. If the Republicans can gain 40, we can finally say goodbye to Nancy "I can't blink" Pelosi permanently.

The same holds true with the Senate. Poor, old Harry Reid might be gone not only as Senate leader but also as a senator. Who says Christmas doesn't come early sometimes? And in two more years, 2012, people will begin to forget who this Obama character was, anyway.
