When Democrats oppose speaking “truth to power” … [Darleen Click]

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, gave the closing benedictions at both the Republican Convention last week and at the Democratic Convention last night.

I assume that Democrats who invited him to their No-to-God-and-Israel shindig expected him to tone down that godbothering, Catholic stuff he did at the RNC.

And when he didn’t, it appears that every network but Fox cut-off the prayer, whereupon left-libs again demonstrated their tolerance and civility.

Democrats insist that it’s the Republicans that have moved to the right, extremely. Yes, we are further apart, but that’s from the POV that ignores their march to the not-American Left.

  1. Haha. He was supposed to offer bromides about “social justice” and “the poor,” not disturb the Abortion party.

  2. Yes, we are further apart, but that’s from the POV that ignores their march to the not-American Left.

    My cow-orkers have been giving me pushback on the assertion that they’ve gone so far left that they can’t even comprehend the middle any more. As evidence, I’ve been presenting them with this:

    Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

    The same guy later said:

    But the most direct and significant kind of federal action aiding economic growth is to make possible an increase in private consumption and investment demand — to cut the fetters which hold back private spending….

    I’m not talking about a “quickie” or a temporary tax cut, which would be more appropriate if a recession were imminent. Nor am I talking about giving the economy a mere shot in the arm, to ease some temporary complaint. I am talking about the accumulated evidence of the last five years that our present tax system, developed as it was, in good part, during World War II to restrain growth, exerts too heavy a drag on growth in peace time; that it siphons out of the private economy too large a share of personal and business purchasing power; that it reduces the financial incentives for personal effort, investment, and risk-taking. In short, to increase demand and lift the economy, the federal government’s most useful role is not to rush into a program of excessive increases in public expenditures, but to expand the incentives and opportunities for private expenditures.

    They usually assume it’s Reagan; of course, it’s actually JFK.

    The Republicans have become the Democrats. The Democrats have become the Socialists. And all of us Hobbits are left standing over here, wondering when somebody — anybody — will join us in a party that might actually start pulling the country back toward its foundational principles.

  3. Clint speaks.

    “President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,”

  4. I did not realize the Networks cut his prayer off.

  5. Pablo, it is cool he improv’d it.

  6. The Daily Show actually did a segment where they interviewed the “tolerant, big-tent, we-accept-everyone” crowd in Charlotte. (Allah has an embedded video here:

    Not big on self-awareness, that bunch.

  7. When Democrats align with lawlessness.

  8. We were watching Fox, so we saw the entire thing. And then we laughed that Cardinal Dolan had just rebutted the entire convention…

  9. Looking at sdferr’s link, I see the mention of Waiting for Guffman, but I kept thinking maybe some 18″ tall colums ala Spinal Tap might be appropriate for the convention this time around. Considering President Dipstick’s appeal is becoming more selective and all.
