Emperor Narcissus scolded us AGAIN today and instructed us to swallow his tax raising, big spending ways.
“It’s not going to get easier, it’s going to get harder. So we might as well do it now; pull off the Band-Aid, eat our peas.”
This is what happens when you eat Obama’s peas.
New 2012 bumpersticker?
Update: It gets better. I had no idea that this was a term coined by the late William Saffire in reference to Michael Dukakis…
“Eat Your Peas” Government is a euphemism for the Nanny State, for the government which assumes that the great bulk of citizens are simply too childlike or stupid to be able to be trusted to make their own decisions about… well… anything. William Safire famously referred to 1988 Democrat presidential candidate Michael Dukakis as an Eat Your Peas politician for being such a scold, and the term stuck.
The fact that Obama actually said it is revealing and the whole tone of his speech, that the American people are too stupid and need parental government, really does seal the fate of the Scold-In-Chief. Incidentally, the link goes to Australia, where they are experiencing the same issues with their Leader as we are with ours.
