Where Power Comes From

William Rusher recommended me to John Ashbrook as a have-an-idea-and-do-it man.

When John hired me, he said, “Bob, I spend a hundred hours a week dealing with my constituent’s troubles, working out deals, answering roll calls, sitting in committee, all the things you know about. I don’t have time to THINK enough.”

“What I want you to do is get out there and think and give me the information and go for it.”

Now at this point the “POWER COMES FROM THE BARREL OF A GUN!” types are going to stop listening and say, “You SEE, I TOLD you congressmen were just puppets of their staff!”

I get so TIRED of crap like that. It’s great for a barroom, but not if you’re dealing in real POWER. What it is impossible to explain to people, the same electorate that MADE the mess in Washington, is that we are talking about the big leagues.

There is a substantial difference between the big leagues and a barroom. The mess in Washington is a result of people listening to the barroom because it’s more fun.

I chose to work for John Ashbrook, and on Capitol Hill there is no substitute for loyalty. You would be ASTONISHED how many staff members simply will not go along with something and resign rather than do it.
I know, I know, only the screaming old drunk in the barroom has any real principles, and all the drunks and voters agree with that.

Meanwhile, back on earth, a man who has been elected and reelected to congress can SMELL disloyalty. I did what I did by reading over what John had written to the point where I did his writing for him. But never once did I EVER try to manipulate him.

Once, when the bill to outlaw in vitro, which LATER resulted in over 20,000 healthy births to families who desperately wanted children, I told John face-to-face that if he, a committed prolifer, required me to work in favor of abolishing in vitro, I would have to resign. He told he was not ABOUT to.

John pointed out to me that, as usual, we thought just alike: we were PRO-LIFE, not just anti-abortion.

So maybe now you can understand why I never believe a WORD that the anti-abortion movement says about embryonic stem cells. You may not agree but you can see why I assume that they lie and that they are NOT pro-life. I assume that they are just theocratic nutcases.

All of this would bore a barroom crowd or a bunch of voters to death. But the big leagues operate on loyalty and, as I have said before, on KEEPING PROMISES.

No, I don’t mean keeping promises to VOTERS. You can do anything you want and a year later, unless the media really hate you, it will all be forgotten by the voters or drunks.

Let me repeat, this is the big leagues. You don’t keep promises to some clown who will forget everything he is shouting about tonight a week from now.

But even a repeatedly reelected congressman can be frozen out and lose everything if he is repeatedly dishonest with the other PROS. They REMEMBER. Their staff REMEMBERS.

You can lie to the kiddies, you SHOULD lie to the kiddies.

But NEVER lie to the grown-ups.

Power comes from HONESTY with those who expect it and will back it up.

    “What I want you to do is get out there and think and give me the information and go for it.”

    Operations and strategy are the same thing.

    Doesn’t even the mafia expect honesty with their own? Nothing can work without it.

    Bob’s criticism of the evangelicals is very accurate; indeed, the Bush Administration did not send one person to Falwell’s funeral.

    This is because they went through the motions of supporting the evangelicals, and always cutting them off at the knees at the first possible moment. Thus, EVERY Administration appointment for the Federal judiciary under Bush was pro-choice.

    They either never caught on, or the shrewdies among them knew how to keep the Trusting Faithful in line.

    Ignoring direct Biblical mandating of abortion, including how it shall be performed – see Numbers 5: vs 24-25 – the evangelicals were played like violins, and, today, have been pretty much neutralized as a political force.

    Capitol Hill has tremendous Institutional memories.

    The evangelicals have none.

    I believe they are starting to develop them, as more and more of them see The System as no longer working for them at all.

    The Nephews, and, hopefully, Young Miss Scarlett, will be part of that.

    Again, as always, Race Matters, pretty much above all.

    Incidentally, kudos to Bob for noting that being Pro-Life allows one to support in vitro.
