Unmerited Self-Congratulation Is a Recipe for Continued Republican Failure

Bill Kristol should be joking here, but unfortunately he isn’t:

Republicans can and should say, with considerable justification and only a bit of bravado: It is past time we ceased to apologize for an imperfect political party. Find its equal. Probably more than any other party in the world, the Republicans have in recent decades stood unflinchingly for the cause of liberty abroad, and, at home, with a bit more uncertainty, for limited, constitutional government and for the principle that government exists to serve free men and free markets, not the reverse.

If you were wondering when Republicans had started apologizing for their party’s flaws, you aren’t alone. The Republican Party has many afflictions and problems today, but a lack of triumphalism about its own virtues isn’t one of them. Kristol’s overconfidence in the GOP is impressive in a perverse way. Reviewing the GOP’s record over the past decade of massive foreign policy failure, executive overreach, expansion of government, growth of the national security state, support for torture and indefinite detention, and government bailouts, there are not many willing to celebrate the party for its “unflinching” defense of the causes of liberty and limited, constitutional government.

The simple reason for that is that it does not deserve to be celebrated. The “principle that government exists to serve free men and free markets” has been one that Republican leaders have honored more in the breach in the last decade. Republican leaders can’t cease to apologize for their party’s flaws now that they have only just begun to acknowledge them. Self-criticism is supposed to be an uncomfortable and humbling experience, not a brief prelude to more self-congratulation.

It's Boehner's Government!!

Obama isn't responsible for spending, remember??

Don't look in your Red Communist Manifesto for the answer, find the copy of the US Constitution.

You forgot to answer the post again. I'll help you. Here's the post again:
bullshit. Do you ever open your mouth and not lie....
He was making a statement in a one-way discussion. After getting to the part of the statement with generally nebulous definition, he uttered the words "act of terror" which could mean anything.
Then, the lies that would have been obvious to anyone in the White House who watched the 7-hour battle on the real-time video feed being watched in the White House started to come the very next day.
So, what happened to the Obama lie about the spontaneous demonstration that obviously didn't happen to everyone in the White House watching the real-time video of the 7-hour battle? You do remember Obama lying for two weeks about this, don't you?
Here's the key part you run away from:

What happened to the Obama lie about some spontaneous demonstration that never happened that Obama pumped out of the White House for two weeks?
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?

A protester interrupted the sleepy confirmation hearings Thursday for Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), who has been nominated to be the next secretary of State.

"You're killing thousands of people!" she yelled. "I'm tired of my friends in the Middle East dying!" She was escorted out.

Kerry responded by mentioning the moment that catapulted him onto the national stage, when he testified in 1971 in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee as a Vietnam veteran and famously asked, "How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?"

"Well, you know, I'll tell you, Mr. Chairman," said Kerry, "When I first came to Washington and testified, I obviously was testifying as part of the group of people who came here to have their voices heard. And that is above all what this place is about."

"So I respect, I think, the woman who was voicing her concerns about that part of the world, and maybe one of you have traveled there. Some of you were there recently. Senator McCain, you were just there, you were in a refugee camp, and I know you heard this kind of thing. People measure what we do. And in a way that's a good exclamation point to my testimony."

Nicely done Sen. Kerry!

I'd like to put an end to speculation, carol, there are, in fact, six carols here currently and the number is growing daily. The name "carol" is becoming a sort of meme and the only reason there aren't more of her already is because you are old people.

You are being punished, "carol", for hubris. The punishment is fairly timid considering the crime, you are guilty of trying to dissemble through blanket judgements and grade school rhetorical devices.

You are used, we realize, to being marginalized by what you describe as "elites" but which are, in fact, just people smarter than you. It's the republican way; the tea-party way; the christian way. Since you are incapable of independent reasoning you huddle together - literally and figuratively - and each put words in the others' mouths. In the case of some of you it's almost as if you are playing the same MPEG loop over and over and over.

This will no longer be tolerated, "carol," and you need to understand that if anybody's going to put words in your mouth it'll be us.

Marxist Communism never took hold anywhere in Europe, only Russia after WWI.
Marx spent time in Cologne, Brussels, Paris, London. Yet only Russia embraced his philosophy.
That includes the Dweeb family!!
Marx's 'Communist Manifesto' became the Bible in Marxist Russia.
You have a red covered copy, which you often confuse with the US Constitution.
You're a fellow traveler, here to foment unrest and agitation in the USA, per the bidding of your master, Vladimir Putin of the KGB.
You're not fooling anyone. The FBI is watching you, comrade.

Perhaps you are unfamilliar (uneducated) on just how the Communist Manifesto was published, idiot. Russia didn't become infected with Marxist communism until 60 years after Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei was published.

Often I offer to trade with Russia. We'll take Putin and they can have Obama. You should hear the howls of laughter from them. "You think we want an idiot for president?" is the most common response.

Now, back to the questions you run away from like a male page from Barney Frank:

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
