I just saw Massachusetts’ governor Deval Patrick, another mediocre intellect/affirmative action beneficiary like his pal Barack, on C-SPAN hawking his new book, A Reason to Believe. That title sounded familiar, and not only because it is very similar to the title of a Tim Hardin song. Back in 1996, pompous, self-important gasbag Mario Cuomo came out with what he called a rebuttal of Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America. It was entitled Reason to Believe. I know that these leftists have been feasting off the bones of FDR, and even Karl Marx, for hundreds of years. We are used to nothing but hackneyed clichés and bumper sticker slogans designed to lull the mind into a state of semi-consciousness to distract voters from their plans, but really?
The lack of originality isn’t the worst of it.
Interestingly, back in 2008, Hillary Clinton’s campaign accused the One, back when he was still capable of walking on water, of plagiarizing some of his “soaring rhetoric” from Mr. Patrick. That accusation was very unfair. As previously noted, liberals robotically recite the same predictable platitudes. They have proven indisputably that they are incapable of original thought.
Let’s get back to that Tim Hardin song entitled “A Reason to Believe.” Here are some of the lyrics:
If I listened long enough to you
I’d find a way to believe that it’s all true.
Knowing that you lied straight faced
While I cried.
Still I look to find a reason to believe.
Come to think of it, perhaps that title is extremely appropriate and should be used for all books written by liberals.
