Obama's Great Race to Change America
RealClearPolitics ^ | August 6, 2009 | Victor Davis Hanson

Posted on 08/05/2009 10:46:08 PM PDT by kingattax

Why does President Obama want to implement all at once radical changes in American foreign policy, environmental policy, education, health care and the tax code?

The answer is easy: If he does not achieve these initiatives soon, he never will.

Almost none of Obama's proposed policies any longer enjoy majority support among voters -- and many of them were not clearly outlined to voters during the campaign.

Current polls show more Americans are against than in favor of his version of health-care reform. Nearly seven in 10 are wary of government takeovers of the economy, like the bank and car bailouts. Over half do not want more borrowing and higher deficits.

The grand scheme of Obamasiah and the loons supporting him is to take America down.

Listen, and understand.

Hussein of Mombasa is out there. He can’t be bargained with. He can’t be reasoned with. He doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And he absolutely will not stop, ever, until we are dead.

It’ll ultimately fail, but the cost will be great.

Against an additional 20-40 million illegal "voters" (however many it takes for ACORN and Hugo Chavez' Diebold to cook the numbers).

IOW, best not to "look forward," and get to work right now or you won't get that chance.

Yes and what is going to happen is he is going push people to the breaking point and the bullets are going to start flying then we are all going to be playing into his hand to call Martial Law. Only thing he has to shore up is the Military and Police backing him. Will they or wont they. That is the question?

Soak the rich?? Do a little math. Doing away with the 10% bracket, and putting back at 15% will that people with an income of 10,000 after standard deductions and dependants for singles and 11700 for married will enjoy roughly a 30 percent increase in their taxes. Taxing the first 8350 at 15% rather than 10% will cost about $417 more in taxes. Change you can live with??

It’s obvious Obama is trying to rush through these Marxist plans as fast as possible before Americans know what hits them. It’s a lot harder to climb out of the tar pit than it is to jump in it. He knows that, and he hopes to change things for the worse before his own poll numbers sink lower than the Marianas Trench.

“Obama’s Great Race to Change America”

Translation: He’s trying to hijack our Republic for the Communists before we can stop him.

It is already too late. This emperor is naked and the world knows it. The only ones who still believe are the die hard lefties.

And he is still president for 3 1/2 years

Show me something to be optimistic about

Discourage the diehard lefties. Point out that Putin has much more chiseled pecs.

That is exactly my concern. He is pushing us to commit something that will give him grounds to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law and send in the troops.

When the troops and police refuse to fire on us, then he will turn for help to Hugo, Fidel and the others. Then it will become very, very interesting, but leave the USA open to external attack.

Well, only 550,000 people lost their jobs last week instead of the projected 580,000. According to Obama &Co. that is good news! And, more good news! An additional 69,000 are now benefiting from government unemployment programs rather than being exploited by the greedy capitalist system! That's good news!

From what I know he has virtually no support amongst the Armed Forces.

“When the troops and police refuse to fire on us, then he will turn for help to Hugo, Fidel and the others.”

When that happens Obozo and the Democrats are dead people because the military & police will begin arresting & rounding them up. Then the real fun begins when these goons are turned over to the people for prosecution and punishment.
