From Hosanna Hosanna to Crucify Him or From Hero to Goat

Matthew 21:9 (King James Version)

9And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

Mark 15:13 (King James Version)

13And they cried out again, Crucify him.

Upon Republican Senator Scott Brown's victory in Massachusetts, the conservative trinity (Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin) were crying out Hosanna in the highest about him; then he cast his first vote and they cried out again, crucify him. The last cry came as a result of Senator Brown's vote this week for a $15 billion jobs bill drafted by Senate majority leader Harry Reid. By voting with the Democrats, he stunned the trinity and some conservative supporters.

I heard Levin and the other two cronies lament how now Scott Brown is not conservative enough. Mark Levin went as far as to say that the conservative movement is not about one person. That wasn't the cry a couple of weeks ago when Senator Brown won. It's amazing how fast you can go from hero to goat with these guys; how quickly you can get on the "S" list because you don't think the way they think. Critics ripped into the 41st GOP senator on Facebook and other sites when he became the first Republican to vote with Democrats on the jobs bill calling him a “traitor.”

Good for Senator Brown! He voted with his own mind and conscience. When asked why he voted the way that he did, he said that he voted for the bill, over the concerns of GOP leadership, because “it’s filled with tax cuts that will help create jobs in Massachusetts.” Again, I say good for you Senator Brown. Hopefully he does not become anyone's puppet.

The United States will never get anywhere as long as we keep playing the same old tired politics as usual. We will never get anywhere as long as the parties continue to war against each other. A divided house cannot stand against itself and as long as we keep running along constantly pointing fingers at the left or the right; the democrats or the republicans; the conservatives or the liberals, etc. etc. we will continue to be a divided house and noting will get done. I encourage and challenge readers of this blog to read GAME CHANGE by John Heilemann & Mark Halperin and OUTRAGE by Dick Morris & Eileen McGann to get some real good insights into what Washington is really all about. After completing these books you will see it is not about the American people.
