Defeatist Attitude vs Can-Do Attitude

There’s a vast gulf between the two.

The military promotes a “can-do” attitude, so does aggressive corporate leadership.

The Obama Administration, like any socialist organization, promotes mediocrity, which is synonymous with defeatism, and why not? After all, the one thing socialism does not promote is personal accomplishment. Sure, these wannabe Bolsheviks may preach the concept, but once one accomplishes, they then seek to penalize one and distribute the spoils to those who accomplish nothing.

And the defeatist mentality seeps into everything, not just the “governed”, but those from which the doctrine of defeatism emanates.

Remember when Homeland “Security” Secretary Janet Napolitano said that the border was as secure as it has ever been, a manipulation of words meant to suggest that it was pretty durn secure?

Well, it wasn’t and isn’t secure, and from her words, Napolitano has no intention of succeeding in making it so.

Not merely her words back in May, but last week as well.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, whose agency is charged with securing America’s borders, told an audience in Washington, D.C., in reference to the U.S.-Mexico border, “You’re never going to totally seal that border.”

Napolitano spoke and answered questions at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) on “Securing the Border: A Smarter Law Enforcement Approach,” on Wednesday.

When asked if she could give a timeline on when the border would be secured, Napolitano said, “The plain fact of the matter is the border is as secure now as it has ever been, but we know we can always do more. And that will always be the case.

“It’s a big border,” she said. “It’s 1,960 miles across that Southwest border. It’s some of the roughest, toughest geographical terrain in the world across that border. And so, the notion that you’re going to seal that border somehow is something that anybody who’s been involved in the actual doing of law enforcement–the front office work or the front line work of the law enforcement–would say, ‘You’re never going to totally seal that border.’”

The rest here.

Yes, folks, American “leadership” has surely fallen a long way.

Where once we were the greatest producer not only of manufactured goods but also of blatant success this planet had ever seen, we are now, thanks in large part to a parade of socialist losers and their minions being elected and reelected by some very
stupid voters who have been too mentally lazy to study candidates and their likely effects, if elected, on the American way of life before going to the polls, a country of defeatists, for defeatists and by defeatists, with Obamas, Napolitanos, Pelosis and Reids sitting on their thrones in Washington, detouring our great nation away from the Constitutional path that once enabled us, through the liberties that are being gradually diminished, to triumph.

Whoa! In the run-on sentences department…

So yeah, Janet, you’re probably right: With a defeatist White House and a defeatist majority on the Hill that encourage excellence only in misleading lies that mask stealth legislation to the contrary, the border will never be secured.

Of course, an unsecure border plays right into the hands of today’s Democrats, who see a “more the merrier” silver lining to that cloud — the more illegal aliens we have in the country when they finally push amnesty through, the more votes there’ll be for Democrats.

Ain’t life grand!?
