I would have loved to been a fly on the wall in Air force One on Tuesday as the president and crazy cousin Dennis headed back to D.C. – right after conning the people of Cleveland, Ohio, with soaring rhetoric full of lies and deceptions.
Can you imagine what goodies were promised from the political shelves of the Obamaland Magic Kingdom to get the once-principled Kucinich to change his mind? I am no fan of Kucinich, but I have always admired his commitment to his insane ideas.
Remember the time he wanted to pass legislation calling for the “Department of Peace” to replace the Department of Defense? Really?! He wanted a fully funded arm of the government to bring peace to a world that is far from peaceful. Dennis truly believed such an idea would make the world embrace worldwide peace.
Insane ideas or not, I truly didn’t believe crazies like Dennis could be bought off.
Guess I was wrong.
Now our crazy cousin has established beyond any doubt Mr. Obama and Ms. Pelosi can get anyone to do anything they desire. All they have to do is show the victim the pleasures to be received if they bow at the altar of the religion of big government. Dennis knows now just what Eve experienced when the grand deceiver found a listening ear. Dennis will regret that airplane ride.
We will know anytime now, and maybe before this column runs, just what the Obama administration is willing to do to pass the most sweeping entitlement program since Social Security. In his FDR wannabe delusion, Mr. Obama views himself as the savior of modern man – or at least those humans living in America. And what FDR started in the ’30s, BHO will complete in 2010.
Has anyone in the mainstream media done any reporting on the genesis of this delusion?
It is straight out of the playbook, “Rules for Radicals,” authored by Saul Alinsky. In the forward of this manifesto to destroy America, Alinsky dedicates the book to Satan. Seriously! Saul would be so proud of his protégé as he exercises the same evil and deception possessed by the father of all lies – the same Satan that Saul so dearly loves. Mr. Obama has now deceived and manipulated an entire nation.
Since he took office, I have tried to give Mr. Obama the benefit of the doubt. I wanted to believe his intentions were good even though I disagreed with them. I am now convinced beyond any doubt that he truly wants to bring our system to its knees and inflict harm.
We know Mr. and Mrs. Obama’s pastor hates America and believes God hates us as well. So how can anyone with half a brain ignore the possibility that the Obamas do indeed hate America and want to punish it for all the misdeeds they believe have been committed?
I can still hear the voice on election night from the Obama voter who said, “Now Obama will pay my rent.” That day may be closer than we can conceive. Millions of lazy, entitlement-minded Americans will now get cradle-to-grave provisions. Is that what America is all about? Redistributing wealth and taking from the “haves” and giving to the “have nots”?
The only hope we have as a nation is to stop the implementation of the Alinsky plan. The fate of the nation lies in the hands of a dozen or so Democrats who hopefully love their country more than the threats coming from their party and party apparatchiks.
It is clear the current administration, along with Pelosi and Reid, will lie, cheat, steal and even trample the Constitution to bring about their socialist/communist utopia vision all while punishing the nation for past missteps. It’s the Alinsky plan for America.
If they pass this bill, then we the people are no longer “we the people.” We are now “we the ruled.” Our nation has been taken over by a band of thugs, and the truly sad part is 52 percent of you sent the thug to the position of power that will enslave all of us.
I hope all you dummies who allowed your hatred for George Bush to blind you from the danger ahead realize the damage you’ve done. When you voted in an all-Democratic Congress in 2006 and Obama in 2008, you put your country in the hands of radical leftists who see a much different America than the average person.
P.T. Barnum had it right when he said, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” I think it may now be every second.
Thank you, Obama voters. I hope you’re happy. But your happiness will be short lived unless you are willing to bow at the altar of your new tyrant – just like crazy cousin Dennis.
