I wrote about this subject last week and political cartoonist Michael Ramirez brings the same up today. What’s your reaction to blaming all of the problems on business executives who will not “step up?”

Now that blaming Bush is falling flat – especially with less than 18 months to go until election day – he’s gotta find someone else to blame. We’re going to see more Democrats calling Republicans racist and in-the-pocket of big, bad business for some time to come. This is easy for the liberal/left/statist to do … the question is do conservatives and the GOP have the hutzpa to stand up to the powerful politicians?
I had this conversation with Jim last night. I really think many conservatives are not interested in stepping out. Sure, the TEA Party movement has helped quite a bit, but I’m convinced many keep their mouths shut – even around friends and family members – to simply avoid being associated with politicians who may do a good job.
How many times have you bitten your lip when someone said something about a public figure who is or could eventually run for office? Think about the pure hatred associated with Palin, Gingrich or George W. Bush. Even politicians know that everyone is not going to like them or what they stand for. Maybe we should remember that.
