As I’ve said many times before, it is standard operating procedure for radicals to accuse their enemies of the things they themselves are guilty of.
A case in point is Steve Rattner, President Obama’s failed “car czar,” whose latest New York Times column accuses Republican presidential candidates of extremism.
In fact the only extremists on the national scene today are the Obama Democrats. President Obama’s spendthrift policies, nationalization of industries, and consolidation of even more power in the executive branch while he relentlessly promotes class warfare make him the most extreme American president in my lifetime.
In order to distract from the disastrous policies of his former boss Rattner lashes out at those who are trying to correct America’s course. Rattner smears GOP presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann, depicting them as hellbent on gutting government.
According to Rattner, they embrace
a philosophy oriented around shrinking the role of the federal government in every imaginable way, by slashing spending, cutting taxes and halting or rescinding regulations. Their mantra is repeal and retrenchment, devoid of new initiatives or a positive agenda.
The only thing we’ve heard from most of the various Republican candidates so far is a desire to undo the damage President Obama has done to America.
If there’s a master plan to miniaturize the federal government, I’ve yet to hear it (and I’m open to it).
Rattner also takes the candidates to task for promising to oppose future increases in the federal government’s debt ceiling. Such talk “may sound good on the Iowa campaign trail, but it would easily tip the economy into an unending downward spiral.”
Wrong again. The growing national debt is what threatens to kill that portion of the economy that has miraculously survived the Obama onslaught. Standard & Poor’s downgraded the credit rating of the United States for the first time in history because government spending is out of control.
The Republican candidates are offering hope and change — for real.
That’s why Rattner and his ilk fear them.

America needs to know that ACORN is restructuring in time to help re-elect President Obama in 2012. Obama used to work for ACORN and represented the group in court as its lawyer. These radical leftists who use the brutal, in-your-face, pressure tactics of Saul Alinsky want to destroy America as we know it and will use any means to do it.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
