This is a clever and worthwhile piece about the impossible fatuousness of Ray Lahood. Lahood says a lot of stupid things even for a politician, and he's being called out on it. Let me call him out on another. As quoted in the piece Lahood says:
“Two years ago, between 50 to 60 Republicans were elected to the House of Representatives to come to Washington to do nothing, and that’s what they’ve done and they’ve stopped any progress. Those people don’t have any vision about what the government can do. That’s been a real inhibitor in our ability to think outside the box and think big”
Mr Lahood, you have it all wrong. Those people were elected to make sure that government only does those things that it can do well (which is virtually nothing), or that it is specifically authorized to do in the US constitution. You people and your supporters are already so far off that reservation, that to you it looks like all they're trying to do is obstruct. But what they're really trying to do is to stop the ship of state before it strikes the rocks. If they manage that herculean task - a task that YOU are the one trying to obstruct - then maybe we can talk about getting it back on course.
The Leftists in this country (like you Mr. Lahood) are so concerned with their own self aggrandizement that they have put the future existence of our Republic at risk. And at this point, allowing you to 'speed up" the already reckless pace of "progress" is tantamount to giving a child a loaded gun. You are (as a group) dangerously deluded about how the world works, and have no business being so free handed with the hard earned wealth of others. Especially when you so obviously plan on wasting it.
In short Mr. Lahood, those people were elected because we think you and your kind are dangerous imbeciles who need to be restrained. It's our money you're spending, and we want you to stop. Your ideas are not good new ideas. They are ideas which have been tried countless times in the past and have failed every time. So shut your yap and go sit on your hands until your boss gets fired in November you dim witted blowhard. We don't want any more of what you're selling.
