Navarrette, I Couldn’t Agree More

Posted in Election 2008,U.S. by Ryan on the August 29th, 2008

I almost always disagree with Navarrette’s articles about illegal immigration, but I couldn’t agree more with him on this very point.  Obama mixes feel good catch phrases of “hard work” and “american dream” with big government.

Navarrette explains his own feelings:

I’m a big fan of getting back up, personal responsibility, educating yourself, making good choices, and getting over the idea that the world owes you a living.

I’m also keen on people not playing the victim, not feeling a sense of entitlement, and not fearing competition. And when you’re struggling in a tough economy, you don’t give up or lay blame or ask for a government bailout, you work harder.

He catches Biden in the same contradiction:

Then Biden got tangled in his own contradiction. He talked about his dad who, when he fell on hard times, would tell his son: “Champ, when you get knocked down, get up.”

Then he lamented that he had “never seen a time when Washington has watched so many people get knocked down without doing anything to help them get back up.”
