|Morning Joe 7/12/2012 -- Political atrophy|

On Morning Joe you can often witness the political realm in all it's decaying glory. Statists of all stripes are busily attempting to save and rebuild the political realm -- tv shows, movies, books, people like Joe Scarborough and John Meacham praising LBJ and FDR for their political prowess, leaving out the aspects that made them horrible indivdiuals unrepresentative of the best of America.
There's a faction of people fascinated by power, and Scarborough seems to believe that most people are awed by political power, and as long as a President is getting things done, people will follow like sheep. It doesn't matter that PPACA is another entitlement which will explode costs to taxpayers, just like Medicare and Medicaid exploded in costs, when Roberts helped the progressives give their stamp of approval to PPACA, the public swooned over Obama's power play and they are now throroughly seduced. This is how statist think -- it's all from a political perspective.
The crew on Morning Joe, Steve Rattner, John Meacham, Dee Dee Myers, Margaret Carlson and other Leftists, discussed Romney's NAACP speech, talked about healthcare and taxes, and then basically discussed the power of politics and how political perception trumps economics. America's political class is imploding. There are very few deep thinkers in politics presently. As they advertised a new TV program called Political Animals, the crew appeared to accept this as the glory of politics -- the games and lies. It's sad really.
It does matter that PPACA is a government white elephant, and the public will crucify all politicians closely associated with it, once the consequences are clear. There are many educated people in the private realm who disdain the political realm and are not impressed at all by games -- these people in the private realm far outnumber those in the political realm getting their jollies on propaganda and statist power-mongering. Americans, for the most part, want government to get out of their way. Romney was right when he told the NAACP that he will be better for the economy and their job prospects than Obama, because skin color doesn't matter except in politics.
