The Democratic Congress and President Obama need to consider changing their slogan from “Change you can believe in” to FUBAR. This acronym, familiar to most Americans that have or are serving in the military, aptly describes the damage inflicted by our President and the 111th Congress on our Nation in just 18 short months. For those readers unfamiliar with the term it translates in polite language to “fouled up beyond all recognition.”
Only in America could the public be influenced through soaring rhetoric and a complicit media to elect a totally inexperienced, unqualified, arrogant and completely narcissistic individual to the Office of the President of the Untied States. For those of us that listened carefully to what President Obama said during his campaign for the Presidency, all the code words were there exposing his socialist agenda.
Now after 18 months of living with his incompetent administration, he has exposed himself to the American electorate for the neophyte community organizer that he really is. Every initiative he has championed has moved this nation in the direction of becoming a European-type socialist democracy. We all need to remember the Founders established our Constitution so that we would remain a “Representative Republic” with strict control over the central (Federal) Government as the means to secure and keep our liberty. The Founders abhorred socialism and had tried to make it unconstitutional. Samuel Adams pointed out that to adopt socialism, respect and support for the traditional Constitution had to be eroded and emasculated. Obama by his own admission views the Constitution as seriously flawed and will not hesitate to appoint Judges with socialists leanings in applying the Constitution.
Given the opportunity, Obama and the liberal Democrats would gladly suspend our written Constitution in favor of a European parliamentary form of Government and thus achieve their statist objective to exercise control over each and every facet of America’s life and liberty. Obama no longer hides his agenda for redistribution of wealth through his continued assault upon the free enterprise system. He and his Administration are the enemy of business and will continue to impose regulation and taxation until they have destroyed all incentive in the marketplace to succeed.
There seems little doubt among economists that the policies of “too big to fail,” “bailouts” and “unending deficit spending” have all failed. Yet we see Vice President Joe Biden stand before the White House Press Corps extolling the virtues and magnificent success at creating or saving 2.6 million jobs during this extended recession. With 15 million unemployed individuals in this Country, how long can the Administration continue to defend their policies before the citizens and the media revolt? I expect the revolt will become evident on November 3, 2010.
With regard to National Security, Unemployment, Energy, Health Care and Cap and Trade, President Obama’s agenda is evident and runs counter to the expectations of the people. Redistribution of our national wealth without regard to the consequences for our children and grandchildren seems to be all that matters to this President.
What some observers characterize as political rhetoric I prefer to call what it actually is – Lies! Lies to cover up for the incompetence of an Administration; lies to further a political ideology; lies to convince America that the President is a leader who takes the appropriate time to measure a situation before rendering a decision or proposing a solution.
The truth has been evident for months and apparent in the delay for a decision on General McCrystal’s request for additional troops to be sent to Afghanistan. Evident in his stubborn resistence to controlling illegal immigration under the guise of seeking comprehensive reform. Evident in the recurring missed deadlines set for imposing sanctions on Iran, and a foreign policy that refuses to declare extremist Islam as our enemy.
America recognizes real leadership and Obama does not meet the requirement to lead the greatest nation in the world. When he encounters opposition to his policies he reverts to threats, intimidation and bullying and calls it leadership. I call it Chicago politics. Just how much more damage can he and his administration do while in office remains to be seen. In the interim his policies , agenda and administration can only be defined with one word. FUBAR!
If This Administration And This Congress (the 111th) Doesn't Outrage You, You Aren't Paying Attention!
