Skip to comments.NBC News Anchor Wishes Obama Were Dictator
Posted on 12/17/2012 9:59:50 AM PST by John Semmens
During an interview with Apple CEO Tim Cook, NBC News anchorman Brian Williams opined that the country might be better off if President Obama could simply order businesses to carry out his economic vision.
The market system is so chaotic and uncoordinated, Williams complained. Every firm, every decision-maker is left free to do as he deems best. Wouldnt it make more sense to have one person issue the marching orders for all? That way theyd all be working on the same plan rather than wasting resources clashing with each other.
Citing the Affordable Health Care Act as an example of what he has in mind, Williams asked If the government can force everyone to purchase health insurance why cant it force every business to manufacture all of its products in America? Think of the money that could be saved on transportation from not having to import anything, the time saved from not having to make decisions, and the jobs created.
Williams assured that he personally wouldnt have any trouble following dictates from Obama because I cant imagine that he would ever lead us astray. In the four years hes been President I dont think hes made a single misstep. I am supremely confident of his leadership.

They really are coming out of the closet now, aren’t they....
Get wet your pants, Brian. You want this kind of life, MOVE.
get = ‘go’
My computer monitor thanks Jesus that this was satire for I would have spare it not if this was true.
Should be marked in the headline as satire.
There’s a lot I wish about that POS Øbama,, being dictator isnt one of them.
For some odd reason I thought he was Canadian. He isn’t. So what’s his excuse?
“They really are coming out of the closet now, arent they”
What’s to stop ‘em?
Examples of nations that adhere to what Brian Williams is suggesting:
1) USSR—1917-1991 with all the Gulags and the Ukrainian starvation
2) Cuba—people are so desperate to evade paradise that the float on 30 year old tires thru shark infested waters in order to share in our ‘economic chaos’.
3) North Korea—they eat tree bark because the government run economy is so resourceful(srac)
4) Pick a country in the Middle East(Israel excluded)
5) Cambodia—(killing Fields)
it’s extremely unfair to satirize something that is SO ENTIRELY BELIEVABLE. LOL!
Stalin & Hitler would agree.
Sure Brian, let’s just ignore world history and go along with systems of government that are tyrannical in nature. A fundamental problem in America is that we’ve lost our understanding of what it means to be a free, and the slippery slope of allowing our freedoms to be taken away from us.
Perhaps Mr. Williams could speak to some of the journalists who dare to speak out in countries like China, Venezuela, North Korea, etc. Assuming of course their Governments haven’t shut them up, in some cases permanently.
Perhaps Mr. Williams should pursue his proposed utopia, pack his bags, and move.
Considering the times we are living in, that would leave him very little to write about!
Another good one John.
