That phrase comes from a press conference with General Russell Honore back in 2005. It was a jab at the media for being mired in the past.
A well placed jab. One that is unforgettable.
It’s a jab that has stood the test of time. It’s a phrase I’m going to use to apply to, first, the Democratic Party and then to its vanguard, the so-called mainstream media. And to the party’s two so-called great families, the Clintons and the Obamas.
All: mired in, and stuck on, stupid.
It starts with the overwhelming self-generated conceit by the left that it’s smarter, better, and in all ways superior to the riffraff that surrounds it in the good old U.S. of A. Smarter than its opponents, morally superior to all, and simply outclassing all others.
These leftists really believe that concept of superiority, particularly the incarnation that gave us Barack Obama.
That’s how they presented Barack Obama to us. For all these years, despite a lot of evidence, in their eyes, Barack was the best. Ever. Smarter, morally superior, he couldn’t do less than ace everything he did. He won the Nobel Peace Prize, he gave the best speeches, he outclassed everyone he touched.
Except he didn’t.
