Tomorrow, a Time for Patriotism

“If ever a time should come,” wrote Adams, “when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”

“Vain” in the highest seats isn’t hard to find.

President Obama said the public is at fault if Democrats don’t do well in tomorrow’s election. Rather than blame himself and his Congressional allies for ramming through unpopular health care legislation and delivering unprecedented levels of red ink, Obama asserted that the voters aren’t thinking straight because they’re too scared — scared stupid, frightened into a lack of clarity.

For people in Pennsylvania’s towns where “jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them,” said Obama, “it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

Another instance of “vain” in the high seats came from Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., regarding his party’s expected losses in tomorrow’s election: “We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on, so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening.
