Morris Supposes His Toeses are Roses…

…but Morris supposes erroneously. This is from an ad in the Human Events newsletter (subscribers only) for a new book called Fleeced:

Americans feel fleeced at every turn, and it’s no wonder. As more and more critical problems develop that need national attention, the White House and Congress are effectively AWOL. And who’s calling the shots instead? Big government, big business, big labor, and big lobbyists — all with self-serving agendas that do nothing to help the ever-increasing number of American people who are losing their homes, paying exorbitant credit card interest rates, and finding their jobs increasingly outsourced to foreign countries.

Make your blood boil? Make you want to toss out the greedy bloodsucking neocon DLC warmongers who have spent the last eight years flushing our economy, our constitution and our nation’s most sacred values right down the toilet?

Wait a minute, though. Here’s the full title of this outraged screed:

Fleeced: How Barack Obama, Media Mockery of Terrorist Threats, Liberals Who Want to Kill Talk Radio, the New Do-Nothing Congress, Companies That Help Iran, and Washington Lobbyists for Foreign Governments Are Fleecing Us…and What to Do About It

And here are the authors: Eileen McGann and her husband, Dick Morris. Yes, that Dick Morris. (The picture below shows two entirely different people. I include it only as an example of very poor taste.)

Wow! There haven't been subtitles that long for a century!

I can't understand why Barack Obama is listed as the first item in the subtitle when he's a freshman Senator....unless Morris fully expects Senator Obama to be elected. Hopefully his election prediction will be more prescient than his book title.

A freshman Senator can retroactively cause harm, if he's a Democrat. Sorta like Bill Clinton and Janet Reno were responsible for Ruby Ridge, and Clinton gave away America's secrets to China during the Reagan administration.

Meanwhile, I liked this part of the quote:

"the White House and Congress are effectively AWOL. And who’s calling the shots instead? Big government,"

Who is "Big Government" to be in charge instead of the White House and the Congress?
