2014 And 2016: Who Cares
Over at The Other McCain, Stacy McCain has published a post on Politico’s latest article on Hillary Clinton possibly running in 2016 and having a clear field.
Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is almost 100 percent certain to run and is already assembling his 2016 presidential campaign. Republicans should not make the mistake, as many did in the lead-up to 2008, of basing their entire plan on beating Hillary.
Stacy’s short set of remarks had led to a lively discussion in the Comments section on the next two elections for the Congress and the Presidency in three-plus years. Do take the time to check it out by clicking here.
Pardon me while I rain all over this parade…
I don’t really care about those elections for the Congress in 2014 and 2016, and the Presidency in the latter.
The national government is beyond hope.
Let’s say we maintain the control of the House and gain it in the Senate and then in 2016 elect a President. Will any of them do what it takes to really make things right? Will they weed-out and fire all of the subversive bureaucrats who infest every nook and cranny of the Federal Leviathan? Because that’s what it would take.
I just don’t see it happening. The national government has grown too large and has been so thoroughly infected with Bureaucratitis and Lefticus Thinkicus that the patient must be declared terminal. Heck, if I were on a Death Panel, I’d refuse authorization for treatment.
Any hope we have lies in taking control in several of the Several States and mounting a federalist resistance to the Left.
So don’t waste your time on the national government because time is running out.
