The left-wing media in America is gushing over Michelle Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, wondering if the 'wrong Obama' is going to be elected President.
As much of the country remains in the thrall of liberal democrats who are preparing to back the moving truck into the driveway of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, its important to take a moment to look and look at the governance results under the leadership of left-wing liberal democrats of the San Francisco Bay Area and the state of California.
For those of you who don't live here, living under the thumb of Democrat leadership is an object lesson in crime, decaying family values, skyrocketing taxation, and inevitable cultural disintegration.
Just because I am a conservative my word shouldn't be taken at face value (it never is) so just pick up a newspaper, any newspaper, and take a look at the headlines.
The San Francisco Chronicle today has about a half dozen examples to make my point.
ECOLOGY'S ON THE TABLE by Stacy Finz
While Alice Waters, a famous restauranteer is busy organizing SlowFoodNation, a political foodfest promoting foods that are produced using eco-friendly farming and fair labor prices (driving up food prices along the way) restaurants in Oakland are being robbed, patrons pistol-whipped, and the Mayor stands by helplessly.
Ron Dellums, a former Congressman who was elected because of his 'progressive' values has allowed criminals to run rings around the police, and his own office is now under investigation by the FBI for corruption. The Oakland City Council are all, you guessed it, Democrats.
Back in San Francisco, teenage crack dealers who are in this country illegally, are being turned over to social welfare agencies rather than deported. This policy has been in place for over 20 years beginning with Democrat Mayor Dianne Feinstein.
These are the real values of Democrats today. Don't be fooled because Michelle Obama read the teleprompter well in Denver, or her husbands mantra for "change" seems appealing because the Republicans in power have botched their mandate with excessive spending and a left-ward drift.
Watch out for Democrats, America. The rhetoric doesn't match the reality.
