There may still be hope for the upcoming generation… Below are two articles VERY much worth examining, each of which backs-up the sentiment so clearly expressed in the cartoon.
The first one’s by Michael Barone and is from several weeks back. However, it’s just as pertinent today as it was then, I promise:

…but only because it’s politically expedient for the Democrats, of course.
First, allow me to provide a quick “refresher” sheet of the various and sundry changes which the president has already unilaterally enacted regarding Obamacare (*click* the image for full-size view):
And now, for the latest “adjustment” of His Lordship’s Glorious-yet-Ever-Changing Healthcare Plan for the Great Unwashed:

The lie that Liberals are telling themselves these days:
Lefty spinners have been out in force this week, trying to not only put some lipstick on the Obamacare pig, but a cocktail dress, earrings and pumps, as well.
However, it seems to be having the opposite effect, which makes perfect sense. After all, you can argue ’til you’re as blue-in-the-face as a Smurf, and folks’ll still figure out that paying hundreds or thousands more each year for insurance is NOT the same as “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan…“.

Given so much of our news today, I’m more convinced than ever that Jonah Goldberg’s 2009 book, ‘Liberal Fascism‘, is essential reading in order to understand the workings of the militant Left.
For instance, take a look at this passage from page 23 (italics/bolds/underlinings are mine):
“…since we must have a working definition of fascism, here is mine: Fascism is a religion of the state.
It assumes the organic unity of the body politic and longs for a national leader attuned to the will of the people. It is totalitarian in that it views everything as political and holds that any action by the state is justified to achieve the common good. It takes responsibility for all aspects of life, including our health and well-being, and seeks to impose uniformity of thought and action, whether by force or through regulation and social pressure.
Everything, including the economy and religion, must be aligned with its objectives. Any rival identity is part of the “problem” and therefore defined as the enemy…”
Now keep that in mind as you review this news report, which eerily illustrates Jonah’s main premise:
A year ago I wrote:
“Holder was the one responsible for the Marc Rich pardons, and it was his Justice Department that dropped the voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party back in 2009. Holder also had the bright idea of trying terrorists in criminal court, an idea which thankfully was blown up by Lindsey Graham, of all people. But that isn’t why he needs to go (at least, that’s not all of it).
No, his refusal to adequately explain his knowledge and involvement in Operation ‘Fast and Furious’ is why Holder is guilty of at LEAST contempt, and why it’s long past time for him to leave.”
I was 1000% right then, …and I’m even more right now: Eric Holder deserves to be fired and perp-walked down the steps to a waiting paddy wagon.
Yesterday woulda’ been nice….

I’ve had this one in my pocket for a week or so, just waiting for someone to use the actual phrase again. I was confident I wouldn’t be waiting very long…
…and I was right. Courtesy of CNN:
Rep. Nancy Pelosi is a “visionary” leader who “never lets ideology cloud her judgment,” President Barack Obama told a crowd of donors in San Francisco Wednesday evening.
Obama is in the Golden State on the first fundraising swing of his second term, kicking off a series of events that will gather money for Congressional Democrats looking to regain control of the House in 2014.
This is reported in the article without the slightest hint of irony or push-back from the CNN reporter.
