albatross: a “taker”; anyone getting any social safety net support. (See also “deadbeats,” below.)
altruism: liberal innocence and idealism; well-meaning but clueless responses to political issues. Also represented as a cover for Dem hypocrisy and corruption. Always used as a smear.
cocktail-hour convictions: another sneering characterization of Dem idealism and cant. A clever, catch-all phrase insofar as it encapsulates Dem elitism, hypocrisy, self-indulgence, and lack of any core moral beliefs.
contracts: part of Paul Ryan’s paternalistic “opportunity grants”; a new level of government monitoring of anyone receiving any form of public assistance.
craven: any Obama foreign policy response short of either armed invasion or massive supplies of weapons. (See “dithering” , below.)
deadbeat: anyone on any form of government financial assistance. The takers.
dithering: any Obama foreign policy response short of either armed invasion or massive supplies of weapons. (See “craven” above)
drive-by shooting: any regulatory or judicial policy or decision opposed by the Tea Party.
low-information voters: Condescending dismissal of Obama supporters in 2008 & 2012. Easily swayed by race-baiting and promises of handouts. After all, anyone with enough information would vote GOP.
magnet: Obama’s masterplan to grant blanket amnesty to Central American refugees, thus creating a whole new generation of Dem voters.
opportunity grants: formerly known as block grants. Part of Paul Ryan’s plan to give the states the power to shrink public assistance to a drip
the Party of Ideas: the GOP. Principled, selfless, and objective. Dems, by comparison, are amoral, self-serving and selfish.
prosecutorial zeal: the root cause of any indictment of a GOP political official or a corporate executive.
a real President: what the US has lacked since 2009. GOP commentators have never accepted Obama as a legitimate president.
root causes. Getting behind Dem hypocrisy to the basics. For example, the “root causes” of poverty are laziness, fraud, and promiscuity.
self-sufficiency: what the poor are accused of never “reaching” or even aspiring toward.
sexual moralism: liberal political correctness on any issues related to rape, birth control, or sexual harrassment. Moralism is not the same as morality, since the Dems are inherently amoral or immoral.
