Fox News ^ | 9-28-11 | Fox News

Posted on 09/28/2011 7:50:03 AM PDT by tcrlaf

Fla. Rep. Allen West was asked if President Obama is just inept or if he is intentionally harming the economy. West says he’s definitely doing this on purpose.

As the first comment on Fox observes, when GE/GM send manufacturing jobs to China, obama's union goons don't say a thing

But when Boeing want's to manufacture in the U.S.A., they try to close Boeing down.

West is completely accurate here

I think he’s pulling a ‘scorched Earth’. He knows he’s toast in the election, so he’s going to take everyone and everything down with him to the point no one will be able to fix it. And he’s enough of a narcissist to try.

“And the motive?”

Stated by the messiah a few years ago, to “fundamentally transform America.”

Also, see the messiah’s answer to someone who asked about whether Hussein believes in American exceptionalism.

The fraud has been very clear on this.

A Strong economy is ALWAYS a Socialists worst enemy, it makes the sheeple complacent. Do you think Pelosi’s “Worst Economy Since The Great Depression!” rhetoric from 2006, when unemployment was just 4.5%, and the Dow was 14,000+ was an error?

There must be a large desperation factor in place to install such a vile system. The union violence is meant to instill fear.
The Obama plots are meant to show the futility of actually working for a living.

The more CHAOS they create, the easier it is to get the sheeple to play along, out of fear.

I doubt it unless every other leftist can be said to be intentionally destroying the economy but then I’m not privy to their motives.

I think he also said something like “Rebuild America on a new foundation”. Of course that means you have to tear down the existing foundation (liberty, free markets, capitalism, etc.). FDR brought it quite a ways. Obama is trying to finish it. (See the link at my tagline).

And the motive?

He told us after being elected that he wanted to fundamentally transform America. The problem is, most at the time didnt understand what he meant by this and werent paying attention to what he stood for. Most here, however, saw the statement for what it meant, which is he wanted to fundamentally transform America away from what has made America great. And he's doing it in large and small chunks while the MSM doesnt challenge him on anything and the sheeple are more concerned about American Idol and Dancing With The Stars.

I've been reading, Black Listed by History, about McCarthy and communists infiltration of the government during the Roosevelt administration and I have to tell you that it is really scary. I cannot see how Roosevelt could not have been aware and most likely, complicit. I now understand why some writers have said that Roosevelt wanted to get involved in WWII. I also think that we never truly cleaned house and ridded ourselves of the communists in government. The communists have been acting as a 5th column since the Russian revolution and they have metastasized to the point of taking over the host.

No, I agree he is doing deliberately. Just can’t figure out why since it is adversely affecting his chances for re-election.

After a bumpy beginning, I’ve grown to like West. He’s new to the field, but he’s got a future ahead of him. He may be blunt at times, but he’s honest, brave and passionate about his beliefs. I respect that.

Destroy capitalism and replace it with communism.

This is the same reason behind choking oil production and pushing “green” energy. No way “green” energy supports a thriving capitalist economy.

I don’t think Obama is trying to destroy the economy.

He merely wishes his dream world worked in the real world, and it doesn’t.

But he can’t change his dream.

Same thing or maybe worse. I think most of them believe that socialism makes for a better economy.

Ford pulls its ad on bailouts

‘Didn’t take the money’ boast ruffles feathers

For the only Detroit automaker that “didn’t take the money” of the federal auto bailouts, Ford Motor Co. keeps paying a price for its comparative success and self-reliant turnaround.

It is so unfortunate Allen West betrayed his conservative ideals in voting to raise the debt ceiling. His words here ring a bit hollow given his culpability (along with the Rinos) for voting to send us further down the path of fiscal destruction. I thought he was different. I won’t go so far as to call him a full fledged hypocrite, but he seems to be talking one way and voting another of late. Talk is cheap, what is important is how one votes. That is my measure of the value of a congressman.

The motive is what some long dead communist said in the last century:

“when things get bad enough the people will take whatever you give them”.

It’s a means to a revolution. Just think how evil this is - ruining lives and a country for his own disproven theory of how the world should be. And I’m sure in his mind he sees himself as the arbitrator of fairness and benefits for the human fodder in his path.

Finally, people are beginning to talk about this out in the open. Many have known for some time that Obama is truly out to destroy this country but no one would talk about it. Now it’s being talked about and by some politicians in Washington. People are starting to listen to what was being said prior to this guys election and they are getting pissed.

He’s not an idiot..he is a Marxist who does not believe in free enterprise. Period.
The trouble is..we don’t have enough honest people in congress to fight the battle. They are too easily bought off with petty cash.
We need a real conservative as President to use the full powers of the Executive to thwart a corrupt congress and undo the damage.

I believe that national security is the most important problem our country is facing today. One of the major threats is radical Islamism, and its goal to kill us and to destroy our nation. If you think our country is in economic trouble now, you’ll see even greater chaos if we experience another terrorist attack like 9/11. A president with business experience will not be enough to save us.

Is any one else here seriously concerned about the overthrow of so many Middle East and African countries in the past year? Egypt, Libya Syria, etc? Has Obama’s tenure emboldened the rebels? Will all of the new governments be ruled by Sharia Law and the tenets of Islam?

I do not believe that all Muslims are evil. Absolutely not! But it is difficult to determine who supports us and who wants us dead.

We need an individual who is willing to identify the evil confronting us and who has the intestinal fortitude to meet them head-on; someone who has come face to face with the enemy and does not fear them. In my opinion, that person is Allen West. I am still hoping that Sarah Palin will decide not to run but instead give her support to Allen West.

I think the plan is to have enough people dependent on government that they are hooked - this is the stated intent with Obamacare. That plus the cheating and he must figure he can worm his way into POTUS for life.

You're absolutely correct. We've seen the way Obama gets legislation to pass when he has majorities in both Houses; we've also seen his strategy to get "emergency" bills through when he doesn't. He goes in front of the American people, and presents a crisis, whether real, or mostly manufactured.

If the unemployment rate continues to rise, and the economy continues to falter, there will come a day when he presents his "Emergency Takeover" plan for the entire US economy. Many might scoff, but there will be the down-trodden and MSM who will go along with it. His goal is to "prove" capitalism doesn't work, and that central planning is best. It will all be attempted under the guise of an emergency.

Cloward Piven: overwhelm the system.

Everything obama has done since slithering into office has been toward that goal.

Since he has been in power, he has actively worked to destroy our capitalist system.

He has been working to empower radical groups like STORM and ACORN, the democrat party unions, the muslim brotherhood and the nacro cartels in Mexico.

This is the most dangerous man we have ever had in the White House. His intentions are to destroy us from within and so far he is succeeding.

What’s really scary is that these people aren’t acting on the fly. All their actions had to been planned out way before he was elected. The big wigs in the democrat party knew this. His media knew this and they said nothing. And these are American citizens who planned out all this destruction of their own country.

One of his 0bamunist sympathizers, Gov Perdue from NC has suggested that to iron out the economy. congressional elections be "postponed". The next thing will be that we don't need to have Presidential elections and the already illegal usurper would remain for life. It's no wonder firearms and ammunition sales are way up!
