Chris Wallace and the Beltway Insiders
The American Thinker ^ | 10/28/2012 | AdaGray

Posted on 10/28/2012 12:15:35 PM PDT by AdaGray

We've been right about the academia elites, the Jurassic media, the elitistconservative pundits, the establishment, the "obama foam" class, and Occupy and union thugs, too. This includes anybody who makes his living from government -- and the reporting thereof.

Just watched Chris Wallace on Fox. Every time I see these Beltway insider types pontificating together I think of this recent article by Edmund Wright which blows them all away.

Wallace is as big a Democrat as his father was, only he has to temper it to keep his gig on Fox. That makes him even more loathsome.

Their universe exists solely inside their circle. If they had to spend a day with one of us redneck folk, they would think WE were the ones out of touch. I mean, dang! We even cook our own food.

“....anybody who makes his living from government ....”

You mean like the guys who died in Libya, or the miliary, or the CIA guys killed last week or 2 weeks ago in Afghanistan?

Now be honest, did you really - I mean, seriously, interpret the piece that way? In context of union thugs, corrupt politicians, bureaucrats and the media - did you really think that was the meaning? Seriously?

The shock and dismay of the beltway class upon a Romney win will be enjoyable. Those things always are. But I suspect the enjoyment from that dichotomy will be short-lived, as I expect the political class that Romney brings in will be the same old elitist schmoozers that will fit hand-in-glove with their media buds, all together sharing an animus towards true grassroots conservatives and Tea Party folks.

Sounds like they are talking about the aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats of the Clinton and Obama administrations..

.. and their their ideological issues.

Void the bowels of Washington, D.C. this November

It would really be hard today to be as liberal as Mike Wallace was in his (and liberalism's) heyday. Chris Wallace is basically a timid guy who keeps his head down. His father was brazen and unabashed. You can say the son isn't the man his father was, but if Mike were still alive and throwing his weight around, Chris's timidity might not look like such a bad thing.

FoxNews isn’t conservative. They just don’t hate America.

Where exactly is this “Chris Wallace and the Beltway Insiders” article? When I click on the link I get a completely different story.

Dear Democrats; you need to have that talk with Obama. You know what talk I mean. The one where you tell him you’ll look the other way while he high tails it to the Cuban embassy. Then you have the talk with Hillary about her going to the Chinese embassy. I know it’s tough. You had such high hopes for them. Well, just say they were a couple of bad eggs. Two bad apples don’t spoil the whole bunch. Can you imagine the pain of a daily dose of confession and remorse over the events in Benghazi? It’s a million times worse than Iran Contra, DESERT ONE and Watergate all rolled into one! That would put the Republicans in absolute control for the next twenty years. The party would split up and be gone forever. Go have that talk with them.

You tell me look at your use of the term “..bureaucrats..”.

If you work for a bureaucracy then by definition you are a bureaucrat!
The uniform services are a bureaucracy, DOD The civilian part that supplies the bullets & beans is a bureaucracy, when CIA officers are home from the field (even in the field depending on the size of the facility!) are in a bureaucracy, the support that keeps them there is a bureaucracy. I am sorry I get tired about the ranting about government bureaucrats. It's misdirection against who is really at fault! Bureaucrats simply implement what the policy is from whoever we put in power. They have very little say in it. (They are exceptions like the NASA idiot Hansen, who by the way every time he publicly opens his mouth and acts as an advocate breaks civil service law! But the system if it's GOP is too cowardly to prosecute, if its Rat then they encourage his law breaking!) Who is at fault is the American voter who buys into the snake oil from the career politician. We voters enable this!

And I really don't have an answer people in minority districts are fine with the local corruption because it "gets back at the man"! (Those parents who actually try to be parents what do the tell their children in regardto honesty?)I am originally from WV and people there were fine for year sending people like Byrd, etc to DC where they go there with modest means & come back with enough wealth to make Midas envious! Yet they don't ask how did that happen on congressional pay? A majority of the country was fine with Bill Clinton's behavior! And in 2008 they put in office a man whose resume might be enough to get him a job as a file clerk!

The problem is us & the career politician, but its mostly us! We send them there, and then wonder why these things we don't like happen! Of course it must be the bureaucrats ! It can't be that smiling baby-kissing slug we gave our votes to! We can't be that foolish! Well we are! The historic record proves it!

You’re off on a rant - so I’ll be succinct: the only way to be “offended” by the article and assume that the soldiers were lumped in with the rest of the government bureaucratic waste is to have gone off in search of being offended.

No common sense reading of the piece would ever lead an intelligent reader to such a conclusion. It was a commentary, not a technical manual.

when the Tea Party went to town on their “smart” rulerwannabe butts, was awesome!

I’ll never forget the Town Halls and the march on DC. :)

“Oh”, they said, “that’s just astroturf.” LOL

I can be terse that's even better then succinct!

“....that the soldiers were lumped in with the rest of the government bureaucratic waste ....”

so if you're not a soldier you're bureaucratic waste?

The 8 CIA civilians that died at Khost were they bureaucratic waste? (Whether a woman with no ops experience should have been in command of base that far in enemy territory is a different question!)

If you want to hate a class of people who really have no say in the matter then go ahead! The career politician has you where he wants you.

I am sorry to have written so far above your ability to comprehend. What the adults who read this article understood is that I was talking about the wasteful and crony government culture. I was not in any way referring to the military, as national defense is the one legitimate function of the Federal Government. Again, the adults understood this point.

Perhaps you should keep your reading to less sophisticated writers from now on.

Bye.

I believe most of us understood it and thought the article was self explanatory.

I sent the link to a number of my friends.
