Well R.S.McCain blogging over at Hot Air’s Green Room, opines that Bill Kristol is, well, you know, a tad too optimistic about Obama’s intentions. This small taste sums up my feelings about Liberals. In fact, I have said the very same thing many times, in different words of course.
It is one thing to assume (at least, for the sake of argument) that a liberal like Obama desires what is good for America. It is another thing to assume that a liberal actually knows what is good for America, or that, knowing what is good, he will actually pursue the good competently and persistently. The history of liberalism disproves any such assumption.
We may give liberals credit for their good intentions – how else shall they pave the road to hell? — but we can never credit liberals with good sense.
If they had any sense, they wouldn’t be liberals, would they?
Actually, I have said previously that Liberals DO love America, and ARE patriotic. But, their love is misguided. What they WANT to do to make America “better” will never make us better, it will damage this nation.
As McCain said, intentions are fine, love and patriotism are too. But the RESULTS of intentions matter far, far more. And the results of Liberal’s intentions are almost always bad for America.
I also agree with McCain’s take on “intellectuals” as well. This is why I tend to think one of the biggest problens with the GOP are it’s intellectuals. They tend to miss the simple truths too often. R.S. McCain doesn’t.
