|Chris Matthews, trying to keep the
tingle run up his leg for another 4 yrs.
- Actually creating private sector jobs.
- Romney and Ryan calling for Congress to actually pass a budget for the first time in four years.
- Romney and Ryan’s faith in American values.
- Governor Romney’s faith, while completely ignoring Obama’s worship at the feet of Jeremiah (“God Damn America”) Wright.
- Supporting American allies such as England, Canada, Israel, etc. over nations openly hostile to the United Staes.
- Dealing with the debt from the Obama years (and before) rather than simply borrowing more money to ‘redistribute the wealth’.
One might be able to argue that MSNBC is simply following Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, thus they are “within the rules” in their treatment of Candidate Romney.
Saul Alinsky on Morality:
1. One’s concern with the ethics of means and ends varies inversely with one’s personal interest in the issue.
2. The judgment of the ethics of means is dependent upon the political position of those sitting in judgment.
3. In war the end justifies almost any means.
4. Judgment must be made in the context of the times in which the action occurred and not from any other chronological vantage point.
5. Concern with ethics increases with the number of means available and vice versa.
6. The less important the end to be desired, the more one can afford to engage in ethical evaluations of means.
7. Generally, success or failure is a mighty determinant of ethics.
8. The morality of means depends upon whether the means is being employed at a time of imminent defeat or imminent victory.
9. Any effective means is automatically judged by the opposition to be unethical.
10. You do what you can with what you have and clothe it in moral garments.
11. Goals must be phrased in general terms like “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity,” “Of the Common Welfare,” “Pursuit of Happiness,” or “Bread and Peace.”
