Channeling the Young Patrick Henry
By Quin Hillyer
March 13, 2009
If this be treason, make the most of it.
No, not treason against this wonderful nation. But this column may sound suspiciously like treason against the cult of Obama, and against his hagiographers in the establishment media, and against the very idea that this president actually loves this nation's liberal, republican, constitutional order. Consider this also to be treason against the myth that our president is a man of deep, or even average, integrity.
Barack Obama is a radical's radical and a man whose ego vastly outstrips his prior accomplishments. He is dangerous, and after just seven weeks he already is leading this country into disaster.
Let's start with his integrity, or lack thereof. It's not just conservatives who are starting to complain about Obama's dishonesty. Already the decidedly centrist Robert Samuelson has called Obama "a great pretender. He repeatedly says he is doing things that he isn't, trusting in his powerful rhetoric to obscure the difference." Or, as National Review's Jim Geraghty has turned into a repeated and accurate refrain, "All statements from Barack Obama come with an expiration date. All of them."
Obama told the nation he doesn't "believe in bigger government" while proposing the biggest government in American history. He says he wants bipartisan consultation but then asks for no substantive Republican/conservative proposals on either "stimulus" or health care -- or on anything else, for that matter. He repeatedly has claimed he would fight against earmarks but signs bills full of them after not lifting a finger to take them out. He pledged not to appoint lobbyists to his administration (a stupid pledge anyway) and then appointed lobbyists to his administration. He promised to allow the public five days to read all bills...

“And if this be treason, make the most of it.”
...”,he must be stopped. Must.”
That wouldn’t be treason, it would be patriotism.
Excellent summary of Obama’s radical and disastrous policies.
I get the impression he’s trying to do as much permanent damage as he can before he gets run out of town on a rail.
I think he is trying to move our country as far as he can to the far- left before the 2010 election. Massive Gov’t spending will have to be followed by massive tax hikes.
No Order of Obama for you, Comrade.
And then the Tax Prisons!
Patrick Henry would likely have been in the hills of Virginia by now, with his guns and his sons....
Give the fool his due.....he is focusing us back to basic principles....and why, maybe Mac losing was not such a bad thing.....that is, if we can survive BO....which I think we can. IMO , when the chips are down this country is a lot tougher than people think.
Days later. Four or five at most IIRC.
That correction aside; the article you started the thread with is great. A well chronicled survey of a thoroughly corrupt individual and his horribly corrupt associates.
