We’ve all had an earful of the things President Obama has done to America over his first 100 days. We know that Obama has moved the United States perilously close to socialism with his policies that have also given us a budget deficit of $1.5 trillion.
Obama has held hands with America-hating socialist dictator Hugo Chavez and accepted an America-bashing book from the thug, while offending our ally Britain by returning a bust of Winston Churchill.
Obama has indebted our grandchildren and even our great-grandchildren with billions in debt in his first 100 days. He has endangered Americans by his pig-headed insistence on closing Guantanamo Bay prison – even after his own administration investigated and found the facility is safe, state-of-the-art and abides by all Geneva Conventions.
To top it all off, Obama’s administration spit on our military veterans by labeling Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans as potential terrorists.
The lists of Obama’s dangerous policies and missteps in his first 100 days are too long for this column, so I wanted to focus on something that he and I did together, a real accomplishment: We finally got Arlen Specter to leave the Republican Party.
That’s right. Obama used the carrot and I used the stick. I know that Benedict Arlen won’t give me credit, so I’ll take it for myself. I’m one of those right-wing extremists Obama’s administration warned you about. The same ones that made Specter shiver when we stormed his office and told him not to vote for the porkulus bill.
When I was in Washington, D.C., before Specter’s fateful vote with his new BFFs, the socialists in the Democratic Party, my extremist friends and I decided we would have a chat with Benedict Arlen. It was apparent when we introduced ourselves that Specter’s office isn’t used to seeing real Americans. The front-office help looked as if she would need a translator to understand us. That office speaks liberal-ese, so our requests didn’t compute.
I tried to make her understand that Specter works for the people, not the other way around. Employees need to listen to their bosses instead of locking doors and hiding under desks. This wasn’t going to be easy.
After the office help tried ignoring, then patronizing us, I flung the door open to the back offices and used my ballpark voice to alert the back-office people – and hopefully Benedict Arlen – that I wanted to talk with him. You can see video on my website.
I told Benedict’s chief of staff that “we will punish him at the polls” if he continued to follow the liberals in Congress and buy into the porkulus.
Well, what can I say, Senator? I warned you. I told you to stop playing in the socialist sandbox, grow a set of cajones and act like a man. I told you to act like a Republican, even though you have always been a liberal and we all knew you were hiding in the left-wing washrooms with the others who want to sell our grandchildren into debt and give our country away.
And what happened? Just as I said, you plummeted in the polls. You were losing because you lost your way a long time ago. Conservative Pat Toomey destroyed you in the polls. And if you think that hiding behind the big D is going to help you survive in the club of disloyal senators, you’ve got another thing coming.
Benedict now has a new master, the man who is leading America in leaps and bounds toward a socialist state. I can’t say how happy I am to have helped him cross over to the dark side. And to all of you Republicans who are looking for somebody to blame: Thank me – and of course my partner, Barack Obama. It was a team effort, but it was worth it. A true work of bipartisanship, and we got it done in Obama’s first 100 days.
I can’t wait for the next 100 days. Important safety tip to Sen. Specter: I still know where your office is located and I won’t have any problem sniffing out the rest of the RINOs who stink up the party of Ronald Reagan.
