Who are the “Useful Idiots”?

That term has been attributed to Lenin, but whoever coined that phrase, it does have some relevance in today's political scene. The definition of the term “Useful Idiot” : is often used as a pejorative term for those who seem to unwittingly support a malignant cause through their naïve attempt to be a force for good. To me, that is the perfect definition of a liberal (a/k/a Progressive).

Who else but a liberal would attempt to takeover 1/6 of our economy with a health care plan, that nobody read before passage, and that has over 2,700 pages and thousands of new regulations to be enforced by the hated I.R.S., and then claim that it would not cost the taxpayer one red cent more, and that they could keep their present insurance plans and their present doctor (NOT!)? Those people are “useful idiots”.

Who else but a liberal would criticize a former president for running up the nations debt (when Bush left office, the deficit stood at $450 billion, which included the 2008 financial crash) while Obama, in his 5 1/2 years in office has raised the deficit four times, averaging approximately more than $1.0 trillion per year, to where our national debt is now around $17.5 trillion and rising. That is a “useful idiot”.

Who but a liberal, would criticize a venerated four-star General prior to initiating a “surge” in Iraq by claiming it wouldn't work and was a waste of men and money, but after it turned out to be the turning point in the stabilization of Iraq, as president, he (Obama) took credit for its success. Now that by pulling all our troops out of Iraq, the country is in turmoil and might be taken over by a vicious group of terrorists called ISIS, and then blame his predecessor. That is a “useful idiot”.

Who but a liberal would propose and institute an $800 billion “stimulus plan” to get the economy back on track and to keep the unemployment rate below 8%, but, as it turned out, it has made the economy worse and the unemployment rate is now over 6% (12% in real terms), and the worker participation rate of 63% (the lowest in decades). That is a “useful idiot”.

Who but a liberal will claim that there are “57” States of America, and who would say that the people of Austria spoke Austrian (they speak German), and that he was conceived by his parents after they participated in the march in Selma, Alabama (1965) when in fact he was born (Obama) four years earlier (1961). That is a “useful idiot”.

Who but a liberal would be given a pass by the “Lame Stream Media” about his past associations and dealings with other “useful idiots” from his hometown of Chicago including his mentor, the race-baiting Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, an admitted domestic terrorist, Father Phleger, a radical Catholic priest, convicted felon Tony Rezko, Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, Van Jones an avowed communist, racial arsonist Jesse Jackson, disgraced convicted former Governor Blago, and Rashid Kahlidi a member of militant Muslim groups etc., while they go after with a vengeance conservative women like Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann for petty verbal gaffes and black conservative men like Lt.Col. Allen West, Sen. Tim Scott, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas etc.. To me, they are “useful idiots” who are mean-spirited to boot.

Look at all the scandals that the Obama Administration is facing including, Fast & Furious, Benghazi, the I.R.S. targeting of Conservative groups, the NSA spying on U.S. Citizens, the border crisis as we are being invaded by illegals crossing our borders with impunity etc. What would you call the president's spokespeople who defend his lies and inaction, with a straight face on national T.V., should they not be called “useful idiots”?

So yes, you could say I'm a conservative who abhors the policies of our present president, but even I (a biased observer) couldn't make these things up to point out the hypocrisy of Obama and the Democrats (liberals). The truth is the truth an no matter how you try to spin the truth, you can't change it.

The biggest danger to our great country is that we have too many “useful idiots” in important places and positions in our government. It is not the enemy from without that we should fear, it is the enemy from within (useful idiots) that we should fear.

To listen to the Democratic "useful idiots" you'd think that the "do-nothing" Congress was only the Republican House, but they never mention the Democratic controlled Senate, under the direction of that "useful idiot" Harry Reid. I think there must be a screw loose in that man's head by some of the outrageous things he says along with his partner in crime, Nancy Pelosi, the Botox Queen. If for no other reason to vote this November is to vote out Harry Reid as Senate Majority leader so we can rally put some pressure on our "Liar in Chief" as he tries to transform America into a European-style Socialist country.
