Sometimes, Great Pretenders receive more admiration than they deserve. Cases in point:
1. President Barack Obama
Why the President would insert himself in the George Zimmerman trial and "debate" race relations remains a mystery. But he did and urged a careful study, review and repeal of current "Stand Your Ground" laws that now exist in 30 of the States.
Perhaps he can start with the Illinois version, which was strengthened when President Obama was a mere Illinois State Senator. You know the version he co-sponsored which passed unanimously by a 56-0 margin in the Illinois Senate, then also dominated by Democrats?
Do we laugh at the absurdity of it all? Or do we cry? Read the whole amazing story at Illinois Review.
2. Congressman Brad Schneider (D-IL10th)
After campaigning on total support of Obamacare, and severely criticizing Dold votes against the measure, Schneider has now voted against mandatory coverage of individuals, and seems to favor the Obama Administration's decision not to enforce their own law and delay mandatory coverage through small businesses. So Schneider is now agreeing with Dold?
Do we laugh at the absurdity of it all? Or do we cry?
Rabid far left wing Democrat "Ellen of the 10th" Gill has expressed her disappointment with Schneider on multiple occasions, with her latest about the Schneider Obamacare flip flops posted here. Gill also complains about the lack of responsiveness by the Schneider office. Another self-proclaimed liberal "journalist" advocate also complains about the inaccessible Schneider and how his office routinely lied to her about setting up meetings. The lack of accessibility complaint I hear from many Republicans and Republican groups on a regular basis. It's nice to see we aren't alone.
With a Great Pretender in the White House, and another one representing us in Congress, it's time to ask: Do we want pretenders to continue represent us or do we want the real things?
