“We are ruled by mercenaries who feel no long-term obligation to the people.”
Tucker Carlson has a long record of telling it like it is.
In keeping with his reputation, the Fox News host gave a very detailed monologue this week explaining why the political class hates America.
And he just blew the lid off one of the biggest scandals in American history.
Tucker Carlson took a moment to explain why Mitt Romney decided to attack President Trump in his op-ed on Wednesday.
The Fox News host dissected Romney’s motivations and how they serve as part of a greater trend in American politics.
His conclusion was stunning. Carlson pointed out that Romney’s comments were just the latest in a longstanding “feud” between himself and the President.
Carlson called it a “window” into how politicians in both parties view America.
Carlson duly noted that Romney attacked President Trump’s decision to pull troops out of Syria when Congress had never authorized any war in Syria to begin with, and that he never offered to explain how staying in Syria has benefited the average American.
Carlson went on to say:
“Romney refers to unwavering support for a finance-based economy and an internationalist foreign policy as
the “mainstream Republican” view. He’s right. For generations, Republicans have considered it their duty to make the world safe for banking, while simultaneously prosecuting ever more foreign wars.”
“Modern Democrats generally support these goals. There are signs, however, that most people do not support this, and not just in America. In countries around the world…What you’re watching is populations revolting against leaders who refuse to improve their lives.”
Carlson then dove into the cultural and societal decay that has gripped the country for decades—which leaders such as Romney have always failed to address. The Fox News host pointed out that material progress and prosperity no longer represent the fulfillment Americans used to think it did, adding, “Anyone who thinks the health of a nation can be summed up in GDP is an idiot.”
Carlson then took his monologue towards an indictment against not just Romney, but the entire political class.
“We are ruled by mercenaries who feel no long-term obligation to the people they rule. They’re day traders. Substitute teachers. They’re just passing through. They have no skin in this game, and it shows. They can’t solve our problems. They don’t even bother to understand our problems.”
NORM ‘n’ AL Note: A few Muslims were elected last November who exhibit this statement very clearly. They want to do away with Washington traditions by showing up for work in Muslim dress; they introduce legislation which is in no way beneficial to the American people (a Michigan Muslim woman curses the President in open defiance as she says she will try to impeach him); and they want to be sworn into office placing their hand on the Koran and not the Bible. Is it really possible that Americans thought it was a good idea to elect completely inexperienced Muslims into our Congress? Carlson hit the nail on the head: We do not have elected senators and representatives who CARE about Americans or our country. They care about their bloated pay scale and very generous retirement plan, and they really care about all the perks of office that come along with the job, but they care not at all about the people of America who elected them.
Carlson clearly illustrated what motivated Romney to write his op-ed against the President.
Romney is unable to connect with the average American, and he never will. What drove Romney to attack the President is what drives nearly everyone politically connected to D.C. to attack Trump. Unlike Trump, they don’t understand the rest of America.
The political class can’t comprehend the pain, hopelessness, or isolation millions of Americans are facing in the present culture of our society.
The political class can’t understand why Americans rejected the status quo and voted for Donald Trump in 2016.
Worst of all, the establishment on both sides of the aisle doesn’t care to change their approach because it has worked so well for them in many decades past.
Carlson pointed out that Romney is no different from the same politicians Trump repudiated in 2016, and that’s what feeds Romney’s feud with the President to this day.
NORM ‘n’ AL Note: That and the fact that losing candidates seldom are willing to simply fade into history; they usually want to make sure we know we made a great mistake in not electing them to the office they so richly deserve and are oh-so-qualified for. Just look at Hillary. She simply will not go away, even though she lost the election. She wants to be sure we know she is there waiting for another chance to run. In the meantime, she is still running…amok. Politicians today have no clue how to be civil, let alone respectful, to one another. Somehow they have gotten the impression that the more arrogant, foul-mouthed, and ignorant they are, the more they deserve to be in office. None of this is lost on Americans, who are pretty sure that the country they used to love is circling the drain in many different ways.
