DC Insider Interview Part 2: “The President Needs to Grow Up”

Yesterday I published Part 1 of an interview with a “Washington D.C. insider.” Below is Part 2 of the interview. Please note that because the alleged source remains anonymous, there is no way of verifying for sure if the interview is legitimate, or if it was fabricated.

So you still wish to keep your name hidden from the public? Why? I intend to remain working in this town for a bit longer. A public disclosure might complicate that just a bit given who is in power right now. But I won’t be the last one from the current administration coming forward. After the midterms, there will be a number of us speaking about what is really going on in the Democrat Party, if for nothing else because it’s such a damn mess right now.

What do you mean “it’s a damn mess”? I mean just what I said. The Democrat Party is the most chaotic I have ever seen it – and that goes back almost 30 years.

So who is to blame? We all are. By we I mean those of us who were working within the party power structure the last ten years or so. We got so caught up in the hate Bush mentality, we let the party get hijacked by our own far left. That was disaster the moment it happened. The disaster that will be the midterm election in 2010 started in November of 2006 when Pelosi and Reid took over the Democrat Party. Those two have only brought trouble to the Democrat Party since day one of that time.

How do you mean? (A long pause…) Look, I’ve been in the Democrat Party in one way or other, be it campaigns, fundraising, lobbying, whatever…we lost our way in 2006. We put in place a Speaker of the House who is an absolute public relations train wreck. The lady is a… She’s tough. Yeah, she’s real tough. But outside of the halls of Congress, forget it. She’s a nut to the American people because America was and is a right of center country. As a Democrat I say that, because I understand it. Bill Clinton understood it. Pelosi, Reid, Obama… they don’t accept that fact.”

Become a Freedom Fighter, Get Behind DeMint

I’ve encouraged you before to get behind Senator Jim DeMint in his campaign for U.S. Senator for South Carolina. Jim has been dubbed “America’s Most Conservative United States Senator” by the National Journal and his record backs it up. He writes:

“We’ve been duped into believing government alone can solve our country’s problems. I believe often the government is the problem. America’s greatness is found in its people and its values not in its government…with every round of new regulation and increased spending our country slides further away from liberty and closer to socialism.”

Supporting Jim has just gotten better! For a donation of $10 and up, his team will send you a free “Freedom Fighter” t-shirt, as well as a copy of his book, “Saving Freedom.”

Bob Hamer of Andrew Breitbart’s Big Hollywood website reviews the book which was only released in July:

“The book doesn’t whine about our nation’s problems. He provides an action plan for the nation and the individual to reclaim our freedoms. As Fox News says, “We report, you decide.” I would encourage everyone to take a look. “Saving Freedom” provides knowledge and some practical ways of doing and serving. Become informed and get involved. It is our country but it may not be the country we think we know if we don’t act soon…

…He acknowledges socialism begins with good intentions but becomes a government by force taking from some to give to others with the unintended consequences of destroying individual responsibility and creating an even greater dependency on the government.”

For donations over $25, Jim will personally sign the book for you. Would encourage you all to chip in.
