“…the Cambridge Police Department acted stupidly…”
Barack H. Obama
July 22, 2009
Within the past week, the President of the United States has made at least two disturbing statements about the political system in the United States, and, apparently, how he wishes it were not the way it is, even to the point of how he is tempted to use whatever means he thinks he has at his disposal to get around it. In a speech to the National Council of LaRaza, Barack Obama expressed an inner urge to reform the immigration system of the United States, and other things, all by himself:
Believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you not just on immigration reform. But that’s not how our system works,”
Then, in addressing the debt crisis drama being played out in the nation’s capitol, Obama said this:
“If we do not come to an agreement, we could lose our country’s AAA credit rating. Not because we do not have the capacity to pay our bills. We do. But because we did not have a AAA political system to match our AAA credit rating.
So the President is of the opinion that the United States of America does not have a Triple A political system? Well, well, well. He need not have felt it necessary to remind us what he thinks of our country…..and the patriots who populate it. We have known about that going back at least as far as his remarks on the eve of his election that “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming America”, and thence to his ridicule and calling out of such icons as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, and on to his spokesmen’s churlish and quarreling behavior toward the mainstream media outlet Fox News. And along the way, discovering past speeches and videos of Obama touting fondly the virtues of the redistribution of wealth, the very antithesis of the American foundational system. Still, it’s pretty stark and derisive, isn’t it, for a President to say that if he and his party do not get their way on budgetary and appropriations matters it is because of the inadequacy of our political system? And to blatantly state that he lusts in his heart to go around the legal system and the separation of powers of the US Constitution to grant amnesty, open the borders and flood the country , more than it already is flooded, with illegal aliens, aka Democrat voters?
The mindset and formation and construction of Obama have been there for any who wish to avail themselves of not only what Obama himself has offered, but also that by chroniclers such as D’Souza and Kurtz. We know all this. We know about the ‘dreams of his father’ and his mothers’ left- wing associations and the Frank Marshall Davis’s and the Jeremiah Wrights and the Bernadine Dohrns and the Bill Ayers’ and the Columbia years, and the ‘community organizing’. So, having all that background, we cannot just ignore, or laugh off, or excuse
some any of these bizarre (for ordinary Americans) pronouncements from the Chief Executive. To do so would be irresponsible. At least as irresponsible, if not more so, as the comments of the man himself, as supposedly the leader of the ‘free world’ and the most powerful man in that world. For we, the common people, are ultimately the ones Franklin quipped would ‘keep the Republic’, or not.
And neither can our representatives and spokesmen in DC and elsewhere ignore them or excuse them. For as they go about their business of making the laws and overseeing the enforcement of same, they must be aware of what the Obama regime sees as the preferred method of governing. The evidence so far is that this method is the assumption of more and more power, gradually or more rapidly as conditions allow. And they cannot ignore the urgings of Obama’s allies and abbettors, such as South Carolina’s James Clyburn, a member of the House Democrat Leadership, and others, for him to attempt to usurp and mangle the Constitution in order to secure funding for the furtherance of rule by regulation, or dictat, and the funneling of ‘walking around money’ to sympathetic groups. Oh yes, we know whereby SEIU, ACORN, Natural Resources Defense Council and others get ‘coddled’. And that’s proper subject for more investigation and commentary by the Kurtz’s and the D’souzas and the Breitbarts and the Malkins of the world.
What matters now as the budget impasse approaches it’s denouement, and then on into the election season, is that Obama’s every word, every deed, every Executive Order, even unto every facial tic, be publicized and scrutinized for hints of desperation. For as his poll numbers, now at an abysmally low mark of 40% approvability, fall into the range of unelectability, the frustration he has expressed til now may vent itself by acts exceeding those for which his Departments and Agencies are already currently under investigation by Congress. For ourselves, we can only say that we have already had enough.
