The Tea Party GOP got what they wanted. Their game of economic terrorism has resulted in one more step towards economic calamity for the American people. The austerity recession is here, if not already fully arrived.
The other shoe has fallen as well: although America's AAA credit rating made it through two world wars and a Great Depression intact, it could not survive the country's first black President. The Tea Party GOP can sit in the corner, smugly smiling now, as they prepare to carve up Barack Obama just a whee bit more as the 2012 election approaches.
Let us be frank and state the obvious...a reality that so many in the mainstream media are loathe to admit: The Tea Party GOP and its highwayman want to destroy President Obama because he is a Democrat. But, they despise him because he is Black.
The intransigence and obstructionism that the President experienced at every turn, especially as seen in what is almost always a routine decision to raise the debt ceiling limit, has been--pardon the pun--deeply colored by the bugaboo that is white racism.
There's more. Go check it out.
That author has a blog titled We are respectable negroes, which I have now happily added to my blog roll. Here's how he describes himself there:
Chauncey DeVega is a race man in progress and occasional polemicist. He is also a resplendent purveyor of negro wisdom and collector of Black wit. Holder of the sacred challis of the Ghetto Nerds. A believer in Black Pragmatism and the glories of the Black Freedom Struggle.
Chauncey DeVega is a speaker for the tribe known as We are Respectable Negroes...folks who are just a little angry (and you know what happens when we get angry). It may appear that we are the same, but as you will see, we are actually quite different.
He remains anonymous for now. But there will be clues, tasty morsels of information, that friends (and perhaps enemies) can use to find out his gov't name.
Hmmmm...we'll have to keep an eye on that one! :-)
