Where's the Damn Report Card?

You know how normal people get report cards in school to tell them how they're doing?

And professionals receive performance reviews?

How about Democrats? Do Democrats ever look back? Ever do any introspection?

How's FDR's Social Security program doing? On solid ground after being sold to the American people as insurance, but defended in the Supreme Court as a tax?

What happened to all of those trillions of dollars paid in by retirees? Could it be that Social Security is bankrupt and headed to collapse in just a couple of decades?

Oh, and I've been out of town. How did LBJ's "Great Society" work out? All of those housing projects and wealth transfers? Did that "War on Poverty" succeed?

And how's 'Chain Migration' doing? Letting illegals stream over the border, give birth and claim citizenship? That working out well? All that Balkanization of large swaths of the United States? Going swimmingly?

And Medicare? You know, the medical program that is hemorrhaging $100 billion a year in fraud alone? How's that Medicare 'trust fund' working out? Going well?

And the Democrats' incessant push to lower eligibility for welfare payments, food stamps and tax credits? Is that cutting down on single-parent families and inner-city blight?

Oh -- and how's that Post Office thingy doing? Making lots of money? The paragon of efficiency?

What about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? How'd those 'job shops for connected Democrats' turn out? Those help the economy?

Anyone know what ever happened with the SEC? They still protecting investors from crooks like Bernie Madoff and Allen Stanford? Keeping folks safe from AIG and Enron?

* * * * * * * * *

Before they embark on brand new social engineering programs like Obamacare, couldn't we grade the Democrats' performance on their existing programs? Issue a report card before they nationalize even more sectors of the economy?

Couldn't we evaluate what's in place now? Before implementing a trillion-dollar "Stimulus" program, Cap-and-Trade, socialized medicine, a 2400-page "financial overhaul", and "comprehensive immigration reform"?

No. Democrats never look back. Never learn from failure. Never educate themselves. Because their ideology trumps history, facts, logic and reason. Which is why we must defeat them in 2012. Before it's too late.

@MM: Thanks!

@All: I forgot to mention that this post is best read using the voice of Stewie from Family Guy.

Like this, where Stewie says to Brian:

How you uh, how you comin' on that novel you're working on? Huh? Gotta a big, uh, big stack of papers there? Gotta, gotta nice litte story you're working on there? Your big novel you've been working on for 3 years? Huh? Gotta, gotta compelling protaganist? Yeah? Gotta obstacle for him to overcome? Huh? Gotta story brewing there? Working on, working on that for quite some time? Huh? (voice getting higher pitched) Yea, talking about that 3 years ago. Been working on that the whole time? Nice little narrative? Beginning, middle, and end? Some friends become enemies, some enemies become friends? At the end your main character is richer from the experience? Yeah? Yeah? (voice returns to normal) No, no, you deserve some time off.
