By Acclamation, Howie Carr’s Compilation of How America Has “Changed” Since January 20, 2009

Under my post and to cheers from MSteven and Joe Bernstein, Warrington Faust points to Howie Carr’s column in Friday’s Boston Herald.

I was pondering this the other night during the State of the Union address. Did you know that our elite military units like the Navy SEALs are now examples of America at its absolute finest? Why, wasn’t it just a few years ago that Sen. Dick Durbin was comparing these very same troops to the Khmer Rouge and Joe Stalin’s Red Army?
What used to be Dick Cheney’s hit squad is now a beacon of freedom.
But now of course the president is a Democrat. When Durbin spoke a Republican resided in the White House.

On Jan. 20, 2009, all the homeless people went home. Inflation ended that same day. No longer do dying Americans have to travel to Canada to buy affordable prescription drugs.
The Tea Party — violent rhetoric. Occupy Wall Street and the publicly defecating hippies — in the finest tradition of our Founding Fathers.
Bush mispronounces nuclear — idiot. Obama butchers corpsman — misspoke.
Raising the debt ceiling under Bush — the worst kind of fiscal irresponsibility. Raising the debt ceiling under Obama — a valiant effort by our young president to save the world economy. …

It’s all about consistency … or the lack thereof. On January 20, 2009, the rose colored glasses were popped in front of many pairs of eyes including, problematically, some in the Fourth Estate.

On January 20, 2009 dissent went from being “the Highest Form of Patriotism” to the lowest form of racism.

The lamestream media battle cry is now: “How do we destroy every last Republican…let us count the ways”. Hussein Obama attacks corporate “Amerika” for not creating jobs and kills the Keystone pipeline. GE’s Immelt, Hussein’s “Jobs Czar”, pays no corporate tax and relocates thousands of jobs out of the USA… facilitate the zero payment. Record numbers of Americans now on food stamps and or govt. handouts. 99 weeks of unemployment with a proposal to extend further.These are telling times my friends. Study Nazi Germany. Crises were invented to be solved by the regime.

Cindy Sheehan, who was on MSNBC like 17 times a week now can’t get booked.
Progressives are far from anti-war, just anti-Republican war.
