Video: “Those voices don’t speak for us”

posted at 4:24 pm on August 16, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

At least we hope they don’t.  The Republican Study Committee chaired by Rep. Tom Price releases a “greatest hits” compilation video of Democrats over the last eighteen months that speak to their attitude and approach to constitutional government.  We’ve seen the moments before in earlier clips, but the RSC puts these together with warnings from Ronald Reagan about the danger to liberty from runaway government and liberal policies.  If these seemed trenchant decades ago, they’re equally relevant now:

Reagan was a prophet.

The only thing that prevents the Reagan ideal from being possible is the incestuous relationship between big corporations and their governmental masters (or slaves).

Without a true objective party (government) willing to enforce a minimum amount of regulation ruthlessly upon those who participate within the free market……the Reagan ideal can not succeed.

The nexus of government and corporations (through their lobbyist friends) have made he free market impossible.

Terrifying. Simply terrifying.

Can there be any doubt anymore that we are not fighting those with whom we would disagree—but those who wish to destroy the country? Their words, juxtaposed against Reagan’s warnings of government’s encroaching on individual liberties, is as damning a proof as you can find.

We are in a battle not just for our lives, but for the life of our country.

We have to win. There is no other choice.

You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin—just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard ’round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn’t die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace? Well it’s a simple answer after all.

You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “There is a price we will not pay.” “There is a point beyond which they must not advance.”

–RR

Jeb bush and Mitt rommney disagree with you:

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Saturday that it’s time for the Republican Party to give up its “nostalgia” for the heyday of the Reagan era and look forward, even if it means stealing the winning strategy deployed by Democrats in the 2008 election.
“You can’t beat something with nothing, and the other side has something. I don’t like it, but they have it, and we have to be respectful and mindful of that,” Mr. Bush said.

The former president’s brother, often mentioned as a potential candidate in 2012, said President Obama’s message of hope and change during the 2008 campaign clearly resonated with Americans.

“So our ideas need to be forward looking and relevant. I felt like there was a lot of nostalgia and the good old days in the [Republican] messaging. I mean, it’s great, but it doesn’t draw people toward your cause,” Mr. Bush said.

From the conservative side, it’s time for us to listen first, to learn a little bit, to upgrade our message a little bit, to not be nostalgic about the past because, you know, things do ebb and flow.”

The Florida governor joined former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and House Republican Whip Eric Cantor on Saturday at a small pizza parlor in Arlington for the inaugural event of the National Council for a New America

those that defend the Bushes and rip Obama make no sense. There is very little difference between bush and Obama. true Obama is bush on steriods but he is still a true statist like bush and his father. the GOP will yell at Obama’s spending but fail to declare Bush’s addtion of $5 trillion in debt was not ok. They yell about Obama supporting the 9/11 mosque but defend Bush’s dubai ports decsion or his efforts to hide the real reason for the terrorism we are fighting (radical Isam) bush wouldn’t even say the words or define the enemy we were fighting. the list goes on.

this isn’t about asigning blame its about asigning personal responsibility for the problems this country is in. Bush gave us TARP and Obama used it to takeover the auto companies. Bush abandoned the free market to save the free market and instead allowed the takeover of the freemarket system by government.

There is nothing about Bush nor his father that the GOp can defend without pointing to the same policies with the present day democratic party.

the bushes accepted the concept of statism and rejected the concept of the founding fathers. history shows this. By the end of the GOP rulership they were reduced to saying they were not as bad as statists as the dems.

I will not like most GOpers/conservatives knee jerk support bush and his policies and I would rather not have him back nor his father. At the very least Obama for all his faults he is at least showing america what statism is. and that statism is statism be it ruled by a Rep or a Dem.

Spot on – it gave me chills. Reagan always had his finger the real pulse of America. That’s why he won re-election (by a landslide) even though he had major losses during the mid-terms and the economy at the time was still struggling: because he believed in American exceptionalism and had a genuine optimism and faith in the character and resilience of the American people. And that is the reason that Obama will not win re-election: because he has none of those things.

I am inclined to agree with unseen. All those Bush 41 speeches about the “new world order” and such.

Actually, Bush 41 and 43 went well beyond statism. Their aim seemed to be moving us toward one world government.

My collie says:

The most laughable moment was when Charlie Gibson asked Sarah Palin the Bush doctrine question. The correct answer would have been that the doctrine of pre-emptive military strikes came from Paul Wolfowitz and the Bush 41 administration, not from Bush 43. Palin missed an opportunity to school that arrogant twit.

The Democrats are the Totalitarians of the 21st Century. Reagen’s great line in this: The government cannot control the economy without controlling the people.

The best word that describes them( and closely resembles their own positive label) is Oppressive.

Oppressive in controlling the economy, healthcare and whatever suits their current whims.

Reagan was a prophet.

rickyricardo on August 16, 2010 at 4:32 PM

I beg to differ.

RWR was a man who understood the intellectual and theoretical underpinnings of conservatism, and thus knew in his heart and in his actions why conservatism was inherently superior to liberalism… why individualism was inherently better than collectivism.

Something we should demand in our next standard-bearer.

Damn…

Yeah but, Reagan didn’t spend enough on AIDS research or something.

Akzed on August 16, 2010 at 6:36 PM

God almighty! I haven’t heard a voice with conviction in it like Reagen’s in so long I had forgotten what its like.Just listen to the two sides and compare leadership. I just saw the Iowa poll and it had Huggable Huckabee in first place in the GOP primary for 2012. We are so screwed!Where is the conservative knight on a white horse when we need him/her? Someone that can speak what they mean and mean what they speak.

inspectorudy on August 16, 2010 at 4:37 PM

I will be working very hard to make sure Huggable Huckabee does NOT win the Iowa Primary.

Something we should demand in our next standard-bearer.
