Politicians Need to Get Off Their High Horses

1-28-10 Posted by admin in Blog, Featured Articles, Gallery, Recent Articles 1 Comments

Jay Heiler uses his acerbic wit to chastise politicians on both sides for being “high priests.” He calls for a return to being servants of the people rather than “seeking to be served.” Heiler has his pulse on the people of America and the righteous anger they feel toward big government. Read his op-ed at the Arizona Republic to see who he points his finger at and why.

Jay participated in Catholic Advocate’s LIVE BLOG during the president’s State of the Union address. We hope to see more of his writing here at Catholic Advocate!

Jay Heiler is a public-affairs consultant. He was chief of staff in the administration of former Arizona Gov. Fife Symington.

Dems Don’t Get It: Voters are Fed Up

By Jay Heiler, The Arizona Republic

Last week came three days that changed the world – at least the political world.

The Massachusetts Senate election on Tuesday and a Supreme Court decision on Thursday landed hard to the gut and the jaw of the Democratic Party.

There seems to have been brain trauma. James Carville, big talker of the left, weighed in hurriedly as an “international political consultant,” in a Financial Times column dispatched from the Seychelle Islands. Carville assured us “Teddy’s seat” was lost because Democrats have failed to blame George W. Bush for the nation’s problems.

Blame him? The Democrats have been feeding on Bush for four years. There’s nothing left of him but his dental work. Carville can bray as loud and long as any hoven beast in the political barnyard, but this marks new heights of the asinine.

    It’s just as you say. The Carville disciples actually believe that 53 consecutive months of Full Employment was a bad thing. Kooky. Of the 7 million fired in all 2008 to the present, 6.8 million happened after the election of Obama, November 2008.
    I remember giving Waterford as a gift to those I love during the Bush years. Gift giving under Obama resembles that of the Carter term, all homemade gifts.
