Guy Pacot: Liberal illogic

I would like to thank the liberal left in Summit County for being inducted into the Jerry Bird Ad Hominem Hall of Fame. In response to Mr. Bird’s usual ad hominem attacks to take the focus off the real problems, I’ll say from the start that you obviously missed the main point of the letter.

If by obstructing you mean not following the lemmings off the cliff and agreeing to plunge the nation into the second catastrophic financial period in our history by repeating the same mistakes of the New Deal, then yes, I can see how you in your blatant disregard for financial history would consider that obstruction. If by distorting, you mean actually bringing the facts to the table and not sycophantically sweeping them under the carpet, then yes, I can understand that your warped sense of the truth would lead you to think this was distortion. If by demeaning you mean pointing out the obvious lack of judgment concerning his appointees, then yes, I could see how you in your conspiracy-theorist mind would consider this demeaning.

When the massive spending is done and we cycle through this recession as we normally do in 12-18 months and unemployment is either unchanged or worse, when we deal with 20-30 percent inflation and get back to interest rates and costs akin to the Carter years, when America votes out the Democratic majority in 2010 and 2012, I think it will be you, Mr. Bird, who will be running for cover under the bed linens still trying to blame George Bush for all the world’s ills and infirmities.
