If a frontal assault on the foundational principals and values of American life can qualify as being at war - then yes, Barack Obama is in combat with our country. And while the belligerence of both his administration and his partys congressional leadership have seemingly created a sense of alarm across the U.S., their apparent disregard for their own self-inflicted political damage is all the more staggering.
Taking aim at Americas foundations has impacted us both here at home, and abroad. European allies France and England have both made note of our Presidents short shrift treatment over the past fourteen months, while earlier this month French President Nicolas Sarkozy chastised Obama for his protectionist, anti-free trade policies ( this is not the right way to behave Sarkozy told our President). And just last week Vice President Biden took U.S.-Israel relations to a new low point by criticizing the nation on their own soil.
But domestically, Obamas greatest offense to American life is fundamentally economic in its nature. And at its root, his assault on our sensibilities is best described in terms that he himself has used to criticize others.
In a quickly produced campaign commercial back in the Fall of 2008, candidate Obama addressed the then- melting down American financial system, stating that this crisis serves as a stark reminder of the failures of crony capitalism, and an economic philosophy that sees any regulation at all as unwise and unnecessary At that moment in time, long-standing American financial institutions were being crushed, mostly by their overexposure to sub-prime mortgages, while the stock market was tumbling precipitously.
Was cronyism in the financial system really our problem back then? Arguably it was one of many problems at that time, although Obamas insinuation that our capitalistic free market economy is un-regulated was phony (completely un-regulated capitalism does not exist).
But today, cronyism is so flagrant and blatant at the highest ranks of our government, that the President and the congress have lost the confidence and the trust of both Americas cultural right and left. The stunning, well-stop-at-nothing fight to take-over the healthcare industry and the medical profession has put Obama-styled cronyism on full display and therein lies the greatest assault on America.
The cronyism, however, didnt begin with the healthcare fight. After taking office, President Obama got to work right away buying-off people who would serve his interests, as he continued the destructive precedent established by George W. Bush and handed over billions of our tax dollars to Chrysler and General Motors. He then established his special Automotive Task Force, and appointed as the head of the task force Steve Rattner, a Wall Street investor with no experience in the car business but with lots of experience in raising campaign money for Obama and Democrats.
When GM and Chrysler ended-up in bankruptcy, President Obama insisted that everybody involved needed to sacrifice, yet the only people to experience a loss were the companies secured creditors. The Obama Administration used the full power of the White House to force the creditors to accept debt payment of thirty cents on the dollar, and then during the re-structuring of the companies managed to have chunks of each corporation gifted to the United Auto Workers Union (the UAW currently owns about 17% of GM, and slightly over 50% of Chrysler).
President Obama had a good reason to provide gifts to the UAW labor union members frequently make great, loyal, campaign foot soldiers for Democrats. And for this reason it was no surprise when President Obama negotiated an exemption from the mandates of his nationalized healthcare plan for UAW members they already receive healthcare benefits, and it made no sense to entangle into government healthcare a group of people who could be politically beneficial to Barack Obama.
Then there are the gifts to individual members of Congress. The Louisiana purchase with Senator Mary Landrieu and the Cornhusker kickback happened months ago. Yet all within the last week, we saw Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich go from a no to a yes vote on Obamacare after his wife was given a job working for Michelle Obama. And the Obama Administration used the power of the Department of the Interior to expand Californias water allocations, in exchange for the votes of on-the-fence Representatives Costa and Cardoza.
And why, exactly, does the Obamacare agenda require all Americans to buy health insurance? Using the force of government to create more demand for their product was a great way for President Obama to garner the political support of the insurance industry.
Yet at the epicenter of all of this all the bribes, manipulations, and heavy-handed mandates is the narrow, political self-interest of one man: Barack Obama. Americas cultural right decries the loss of freedom and the rise of abusive government, while the left decries a government that lines the pockets of for-profit corporations (companies that are presumed to be greedy), all for the benefit of one self-serving politician.
This is the assault on Americas foundational principals and values. It is the assault of governmental cronyism, on our basic understandings of what is right, and fair.
Obama is not American, he does not identify with America, and in fact he actively HATES America.
Is President Obama At War With America?<<<<
“does Charlie Daniels play a mean fiddle??”
All democrats are at war with America. It just isn’t a shooting war. Yet.
I know what’s probably gonna happen to him.
Obama is the most successful communist traitor mole in history.
Kim Philby could not shine his shoes in the treason department.
He shows every day how much he hates America
Is there tea in China?
Is the Pope Catholic?
0bozo has been at war with America for years. Indoctrination from Bill Ayers and 20 years sitting in the church” of the biggest racist and America-hater in America, Jeremiah Wright, should give one a clue about that.
Its called a Cold Civil War...and unfortunately...the way Democrats play politics...may get hot...
It really comes down to this: My conservative political philosophy does not threaten or affect the freedom of liberals. I dont ask them to sacrifice anything for me, but they DEMAND I sacrifice for them
Obama’s a Muslim thug and far more radical than a mere Liberal. His anti-American beliefs/activities should be no surprise — frankly, all one has to do was look at his record. Plus, he’s not a native born American and from an early age was brainwashed to believe with ever fiber of his being that we were pillaging and looting the rest of the world. People who voted for him were willing dupes; they wanted ‘free’ medical insurance, reparations, or the rest of the pie in the sky nonsense he promised during the campaign. And he’s still at it, lying through his teeth, aided and abetted by the MSM.
Every anti-individual collectivist/statist has declared war on Americans. Witness them. Identify them.
Some should be allowed to resign and go back to their families.
Name ONE THING he has done that has been designed to promote freedom and free markets.
There are millions of immigrants from Cuba, China, Russia, India and of course Mexico that are way much more patriotic than Obama.
He is a communist plant initiated by a cold war long term program.And he was raised under Islamic teachings, its like feeding a pit bull on a diet of scorpions.
He is a corrupt and power-crazed, deviant tyrant seeking to get whitey and all those in between. His acts speak of universal control and setting himself up for personal enrichment at the expense of the serfs.
> “If a frontal assault on the foundational principals and values...” <
Misspelling in the first sentence... great.
Hey Austin, how about “principles?” Easy way to remember: “The Principal is your Pal.”
Does a bear do you know what in the woods?.....
BO is merely part of the team which seeks to oppress the average freedom-loving citizen. His team consists of the super-rich (eg Soros), the limo-libs in the Sodom called Hollywood, and american-hating old media, libs and progs. These are our enemies, make no mistake, all of them our enemies.
“People who voted for him were willing dupes; they wanted free medical insurance”
Didn’t they also want their car payments and mortgage taken care of? I forget what that one woman said on Youtube. Ridiculous. *rolls eyes*
