Obama’s Getting Angry And Desperate… And It’s Showing
The pundits are all having their say on President Obama’s latest campaign speech, not-so-cleverly disguised as Wednesday night’s “State of the Union” speech. We’ve already heard the points made eloquently by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and others. I fully expect Mark Levin, the brilliant author of “Liberty and Tyranny” to have a full-on stroke on tonight’s radio program (if he hasn’t already). If anyone can put last night’s Obamanation into perspective, it will be Levin. I only hope EMTs will be present in the studio.
Let’s start with the bottom line: Obama’s speeches mean nothing any more. That was evident last night when he told the most audacious lies about transparency and accountability (via his claim about not hiring lobbyists to staff positions). That was the first time I’ve ever heard a President’s State of the Union speech draw laughter from both sides of the aisle when he was attempting to make a serious point.
In short, this was the least statesman-like State of the Union speech in recorded history. Much of the time on podium was spent criticizing, directly or indirectly:
- The Bush Administration
- The Supreme Court
- Congress – the Senate more so than the House
- Harry Reid (by innuendo) for his failure to shove the healthcare bill down our throats
- The American public (by innuendo) for his rapid decline in the polls
He has threatened to use “Executive Orders” to bypass Congress if they don’t advance his agenda. Yes, those were warning sirens you heard in your head. Heed them. Forget about whether or not Obama can legally do this. He will do it if he feels it’s the only way to accomplish his goals, and then he’ll challenge us to undo the damage. Bet on it.
With his personal failure obvious to everyone but himself, Obama has adopted the Saul Alinsky “Rules for Radicals” philosophy of “Step on the gas” in pushing forward before we have a chance to get rid of him legally (sobering thought: We have three more years of this sentence with Obama. So how does that “Hope” and “Change” look to you now, Sparky?)
Anyone who is unable to see that the danger we face today is greater than it was a year ago just isn’t paying attention.
A year ago, he had just taken office, and had (in his mind) a mandate from the American public that would support whatever changes he was ready to implement.
A year later, much of that public has awakened from their stupor to realize just what America would be like under Obama’s dream/nightmare. Gradually, America woke to find an extreme radical living in the White House as President. They found he had appointed (with no exposure to the normal Senate Confirmation hearings) people one would never see as having America’s interests at heart. People like self-avowed communists, tax cheats (dozens of them in his cabinet or staff, with one of them heading the IRS), devotees of Mao Tse Tung (who had millions of his own countrymen summarily murdered). And worse.
We saw that he had legislation being developed that would allow him to cut off the public’s access to the Internet – “if the President deems it an emergency.” After discovering how Bill Clinton defined “Oral Sex” as not really being sex, one definitely should be wary of leaving it up to Obama to define the word “emergency.”
Suddenly, Obama is no longer the darling of the American voters. And the tone of his speech last night reflected his realization of that. If you compare last night’s speech to any one of the many upbeat campaign speeches during his run for the Presidency, you will note a tremendous difference: two years ago, he was cocky, suave, convincing, and full of himself. He was able to sell his disguised message easily, calling it “Hope and Change.” He bathed in the adulation as he secretly made his plans to dismantle our Republic and re-make it in his own image.
Last night, he was even more cocky, almost defiant in places as if to say, “So what if the bloom is off the rose? I won. And I’m going to implement my agenda, whether you or Congress like it or not.” Look up the word “tyranny”, folks. You’re going to be hearing that word a lot this year, I fear. Because last night, the Statist exposed himself. In so many words, he’s announced that the gloves are off.
It would be wise to stay vigilant and keep in mind the words of two important Americans from our history: Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin.
“When the government fears the people, there is liberty.
When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”
Do you think Obama fears us? Yeah, me neither.
