What are they scared of?

Back in 2006, when Republicans got their butts handed to them in the congressional elections, our liberal yahoo friends immediately told us that the era of Republican domination in American politics was soon coming to an end.

In 2008, when Democrats took control of the White House and both houses of Congress, our liberal yahoo friends gleefully reminded us of their dire warning two years earlier. They then went on to inform us that the Republican Party--in essence, the conservative movement--was dead.

Conservatives, they pointed out, were lost, irrelevant, out of touch, lacking leadership, heading in the wrong direction, oblivious to what really matters to Americans, and so on and so on. More important to them however was with their messiah in the White House wielding his magical wand, Republicans and conservatives were now powerless.

I'll say that again: powerless.

With all this negative rhetoric from our liberal yahoo friends, I could not help but to make a startling, yet simple observation:

If conservatives are lost, irrelevant, out of touch, lacking leadership, heading in the wrong direction, oblivious to what really matters to Americans, and most important of all, powerless, then why is the White House and the Democrats in the House and Senate so scared of them?

Come on, what can a group of lost, irrelevant, out of touch, lacking leadership, heading in the wrong direction, oblivious to what really matters to Americans, and most important of all, powerless conservatives do? So they threw a few Tea Parties where millions showed up, and they are attending Town Hall meetings asking their representatives tough questions. What's the big deal? The movement is powerless, is it not?

Why are you guys so scared?

    Thank you! I've never seen the White House spit out so much negativity towards it's opposition. They have the media and a majority of Congress in the palm of their hands, yet they didn't expect this backlash...

    And so it begins.
    First Obama posters appear of him as the Joker. Then the phrase the Audacity of Joke shows up. Then websites sell
    T shirts and mugs and such with this image.
    Then Obama backs off and lets Honduras be free.
    And so it begins.
    Let us hope that as our congressmen go home, they get trounced by angry citizens threatening that they will not be re-elected if they keep this up.
    The health care package is supposed to be voted on September 15th. The Tea Party-ers are expected in Washington on the 13th. Let us hope that goes smoothly and has a big impact.
    Let us continue to begin to stop them in Washington so we can get our lives (and money) back.
