Welcome to America’s post-Constitutional era made possible by the 2008 backroom deals between inside-the-Beltway Democrat and Republican politicians and actively supported by the main stream media (MSM).
Despite years of effort and contributions by many to track and kill Osama bin Laden, we are now no longer permitted to raise Constitutional questions because he happened to be killed on Barack Hussein Obama’s watch.
Here is one egregious example of what we can expect from the MSM.
David Frum wrote a dishonest and, frankly, disgusting article, laced with accusations of racism and directed against anyone who now questions Obama’s Constitutional eligibility:
“Here’s hoping that we have at last seen the end of this ugly insinuation that there is something less than fully American about the black president with the exotic name.”
Apparently, in Frum’s opinion, anyone who supports and defends the Constitution, including those who fought America’s wars, is a racist and un-American and whose valid arguments are not worthy of a hearing.
Only his opinions are worthy, I imagine. What claptrap.
When Obama wins in 2012, the Republicans will only have themselves to blame. They deceived their supporters and, for the sake of political expediency, circumvented the Constitution.
Republicans cannot run a 2012 Presidential campaign based on lies and trying to become the lapdog of the MSM, who, in the end, will always back Democrats.
The Republican leadership has decided to ignore Obama’s Constitutional ineligibility for the Presidency and campaign against him “on the issues”.
Well, ok then. Good luck.
Obama did not debate policies in 2008, at least not those he ultimately implemented. What makes you think he will do so in 2012?
Obama is already moving to the political center and he will play the “bin Laden card” ad nauseam.
In 2008, Obama ran a campaign consisting of punch lines, sound bites and progressive phrases with all the usual sanctimonious, hypocritical and moralistic trappings.
He won through superb community organizing on a national scale.
The only community to which Republicans reach out reside mostly in country clubs.
Here’s a hint: You won’t win without the political center. So stop alienating us and try showing some backbone.
Obama is a disciple of Chicago-native, Saul Alinsky, a neo-Marxist and community organizer, who wrote: “Rules for Radicals”.
Unlike traditional Marxist revolutionaries, Alinsky preached a philosophy of slow revolution i.e. destroying the system from within.
He also taught that the ends justify the means and to agitate to the point of conflict.
In 2003, Diane Alden summed up well the attitude of Obama Democrats and the weak response from Republicans:
“Unfortunately, Republicans still pretend that nothing has changed regarding the basic philosophy of the political parties. They refuse to understand the horrendous notion that Democrats tell us the U.S. Constitution is flexible. That means the rule of law is flexible. If that is the case the law and the Constitution mean nothing. It means that the law and Constitution are twisted by the whims and fancies of the moment.”
The Republicans have lost the will to win. They adhere to Marquess of Queensberry rules while Democrats kick them in their political groins.
