Maybe you should listen to Rush Limbaugh after all
Hold on a minute: the President of the United States recently lectured his GOP colleagues that "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done." Really? Mr. Limbaugh is a man the left just loves to hate, partly because he is so acerbic but mostly because he is so successful. He gives voice to what many, many people believe. It's just not what the hypertrophied left-wing of the Democratic party believes.
"You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done." But let's listen to what Mr. Limbaugh has to say today in The Wall Street Journal about the so-called "Stimulus" package coming to a tax-increase near you:
There's a serious debate in this country as to how best to end the recession. The average recession will last five to 11 months; the average recovery will last six years. Recessions will end on their own if they're left alone. What can make the recession worse is the wrong kind of government intervention.
I believe the wrong kind is precisely what President Barack Obama has proposed. I don't believe his is a "stimulus plan" at all -- I don't think it stimulates anything but the Democratic Party. This "porkulus" bill is designed to repair the Democratic Party's power losses from the 1990s forward, and to cement the party's majority power for decades.
Sounds right to me. But wait, there's more.
