… to bash Bernanke’s homicidal attack on the dollar. Pat Buchanan nails it, with this raisin in the cake from the Gipper, who called inflation “as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber and as deadly as a hit man.”
Funny. Pat got that quote from Sarah Palin. So why aren’t the “responsible” Republicans in the Tea Party raising the roof about the ripoff?
Here’s a secret about a lot of conservatives: when it comes to monetary policy and foreign policy, they get MEGO — a condition diagnosed by William Safire as “My Eyes Glaze Over.” It’s not surprising that the Left, including the neocons, are so absorbed in foreign escapades. Conservatives want to be left alone. The Left doesn’t want to leave anyone alone.
That’s why so many “conservative” political knees jerk when it comes to the wars. Support the Pentagon/Security/Lobbying complex, and you need not learn a thing about the issues, because no one will challenge you. But take a stand based on the moral law, the Constitution, and common sense, and you’d better stay up nights doing your homework, because you’ll come under withering fire. From your fellow “conservatives,” of course, who are wallowing in the trough.6:28 am on November 12, 2010 Email Christopher Manion
