Peggy Noonan: "We're All Governed By Callous Children

"Americans feel increasingly disheartened, and our leaders don't even notice".


"When I see those in government, both locally and in Washington, spend and tax and come up each day with new ways to spend and tax—health care, cap and trade, etc.—I think: Why aren't they worried about the impact of what they're doing? Why do they think America is so strong it can take endless abuse.

.....We are governed at all levels by America's luckiest children, sons and daughters of the abundance, and they call themselves optimists but they're not optimists—they're unimaginative. They don't have faith, they've just never been foreclosed on. They are stupid and they are callous, and they don't mind it when people become disheartened. They don't even notice."

And we know they don't even care, which is particularly infuriating in light of what their disingenuous campaign rhetoric of last year promised.


  1. No, they do not care. All they care about is their own agendas, period. And by all blueprints being laid out in front of us today (with the appointments of Marx-minded Czars), they are doing exactly what they planned to do. "Transform" America as we've known it.

    I'm so grateful I do not depend on any of them in Washington. selahV

  2. In the 61 plus years God has granted me, I have NEVER seen such a monstrosity as what these people are doing to change our country.

    We will be residents of the new Banana Republic of Ombamistan if we don't stop them soon.

  3. Did you hear that in New York the GOP Dede dropped out of the congressional race and told her voters to vote for the Conservative candidate? The tea-party voices are turning tides...if you don't give us conservative, we won't vote for your liberal Republican. I'm curious about what the Conservative party is going to do to the process. selahV
