Hell hath no fury like a populist movement scorned!
Maxine Water, racing bating, too-long entrenched Congresswoman from South Los Angeles has fired off the latest vapid missive:
“I’m not afraid of anybody,” Waters said at the summit in Inglewood, Calif. “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned, the ‘tea party’ can go straight to Hell.” (source, Washington Post)
In point of fact, Congresswoman Waters has plenty to be afraid of. Running for reelection in recast districts which will shake-up her complacent core constituency, she, along with her Congressional colleagues Karen Bass and Laura Richardson, launched a job summit in Inglewood to give the flimsy appearance of caring for the vast number of minority constituents struggling with high unemployment and dim job prospects.
If she really cared about her voters, if she really wanted what is best for the minority interests whom she claims to serve, she would vent more of her frustration at the current Elitist-in-Chief, who insists on running this country on obsolete Keynesian economics. Stimulus packages, extended unemployment benefits, regulation as long as the red-taped eyes of bureaucrats can see, plus a shell game medical mandate have all spooked businesses from expanding and hiring, for they are still guessing as to whether they can invest time and money or not in a still-uncertain economic climate.
Ms. Waters, inundated with scandal and still under scrutiny from the ethics committee in the House of Representatives, has far more to worry about, as in whether the confirmed bloc of African American voters will continue to be strung along be race-baiting Democratic politicians who scream empty epithets at free-market populist movements, which actually have the best interests of this nation in mind.
As if she needed another problem to shake her standing, Waters faces the prospects of an uphill reelection in recommissioned Congressional districts, which may force her to run against other entrenched politicians. Now she will have to justify to her constituents whether her lackluster legacy to secure economic recovery justifies her continued presence in Washington.
