It’s not suicide. Obama won with every last thing going against him (minus the fact the GOP decided to run another shit-sandwich of a candidate). Already, Jeb Bush is talking about running, and Karl Rove is doing his damnedest to crush any Tea Party candidates. Add in the fact that many RINOs are already talking about capitulating, and Biden knows his party is safe.
I’m still not convinced Obama actually won the election. In fact, I’m no longer convinced our voting system works well enough to be ‘close enough’. Add in that little nugget and, like Obamacare, they feel safe enough to just pass whatever they want.
But, look at LA. One rogue cop is making the largest police force in the nation crap its Kevlar undies. What do you think would happen when hundreds of thousands, if not a million pissed off gun owners rise up?
Between amnesty and Rove, the GOP is doing its best to ensure that the Dems win every seat by default. I wouldn’t be too surprised if we start seeing Republicans jumping ship to the Democrats in the lead-up to 2014. The GOP really does believe that the Democrats are the wave of the future, and that the only way to survive as a party is to become Dem-lite.
The divisions in the country, and the alienation citizens feel from government policies, are at their most marked since the 1850s. Recall that the last time a third party won an election was in 1860. There is a lesson there.
