Forbes: Obama Thinks He’ll be on “Mount Rushmore”; Willing to Sacrifice Dems to His "Revolution"
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | August 26, 2010 | Brian

Posted on 08/26/2010 3:24:54 PM PDT by Federalist Patriot

Here is video of Steve Forbes assessing President Barack Obama and his ideology about as well as I have heard it expressed.

Forbes contends Obama is “ideologically-driven,” and that he believes he will be remembered as a “great President” for the things he has already done. He said that in Obama’s “semi-socialist mind,” that’s pretty good work for the first two years.

Here is how Forbes summarized Obama’s thinking:

“He feels that, in terms of what he’s done, long-term it will make him a great President – put him on Mount Rushmore – change America from a greedy nation to a quiet socialist nation that knows its place in the world. So, in that sense, he’s just going to go along with it, and if the Democrats take a loss, they’re just martyrs to his revolution.”

Could not be better said. Forbes absolutely has Obama pegged.

More and more people will be telling it like it is. It’s about time to come out and call him what he is: An Athiest Marxist with Muslim leanings. (As another FReeper aptly described him).

He’s always willing to sacrifice other people, because it is easy.

I wish some of our Republicans were "ideologically-driven".

The problem here is it can’t work. America cannot become a Euro-socialist nation. Even Europe is reaching the end of its tether. The U.S.A. is far too big and complicated. We cannot run these monster debts for fifty years or so. We are headed for total collapse.

The Cloward-Piven strategy assumes with religious faith that once the old order falls to bits, a beautiful statist utopia will arise phoenix-like from the ashes. I don’t think so.

After the likely November blood bath when Democrats, let us pray, lose control of Congress and are turned out in state and local elections, the blame will fall on Obama. I believe Hillary will at the insistence of Democratic leaders, run against Obama in the 2012 presidential primaries.

I agree. One way or other, 0bama is headed for some very serious humiliation.

If he is on Mount Rushmore, he will be hanging from about 40 feet of 1” hemp — by the heels!

Obama has no use for Mount Rushmore. He wants to join the troika of Marx, Engels and Lenin.

No, NO, NO ! ! !

Obama will be at Mt. Rushmore, but not as a statue. His face will adorn the cheap govt. toilet paper.

The AnnointedIdiot will not be on Rushmore.
Besides, even if he does make it there, his image won’t be there long...

Good luck with instituting Marxism here. The difference between Americans and people in Europe is that we are natural anarchists. If we don’t like a law we just pretty much break it. Thats why we speed and litter and park in the handicapped and don’t wear the seat belt sometimes.

Even more importantly 190 million of us have guns.

Europe has had the benefit of US military protection since WWII. It’s saved them a whole lot of money and allowed them not to take on the responsibility of adults.

When the Republicans take control of the House and perhaps the Senate, Obama will wield his veto pen.

Then...because the SHTF is around the corner, he will blame the GOP for the ‘sudden 180’ away from HIS economic plan.

It’s his only hope, Obiwan.

He has two roads named after him in two cities. I guess Chicago is one of them. He will have a building or two named after him. He will have a library. He will not be on Mount Rushmore. We have Presidents that are already on the Mountain and that is all we will have there. He is egotistical.

Um, what? If he vetoes GOP ideas, and the economy still tanks, how would that be the GOP’s fault?

Conversely, if he signs GOP legislation, and the economy turns, how does he take credit for the real recovery when he merely signed GOP bills into law?
