Video: New theme song for disenchanted liberals

Last night O’Reilly had on Huffington Post President and Editor Arianna Huffington who was plugging her new book, Thrive O’Reilly started out by asking her a question on liberalism — actually progressive socialism. He inquired why she, as a staunch liberal, couldn’t see the failures of that ideology — as we recently discussed regarding the mass exodus from France.

She was totally unable to respond and, well, I actually felt sorry for her — kinda like Barbara Walters coming to the realization that Obama was not some “messiah.”

I know y’all enjoyed the video of the Obama supporter burning her “Obama Homeboy” t-shirt. Seems like many of those under the spell are beginning to feel a bit disenchanted.

Why, that reminds of me of the lyrics from one of my favorite songs from the 80s:

You can’t finish what you start, if this is love it breaks my heart.
You made me promises, promises
Knew you’d never keep
You made me promises, promises
Why do I believe?

They can’t keep their doctor or their healthcare plan — maybe not even their cell phones. Still don’t have jobs. Mean ol’ Vladimir Putin and the Iranians still don’t like us. What’s a liberal to do?

I sense liberals are a bit down in the dumps and need a boost. So, I’m happy to provide a little serenade from one of my favorite songs of the 80s, “Promises, Promises.” I think it captures the liberal mindset right now, and the prison symbolism couldn’t be any more appropriate.

So, take a break, and enjoy this “Ode for Disenchanted Liberals” from yer ol’ buddy Allen West.
