Deeply Troubling Concerns About the President

For me, Barack Obama, in the Rose Garden speech given last Friday, morphed from an unpopular president into, and I choose my words very carefully, a man to be despised and feared for his overt lawlessness and disregard for the Constitution.

A valid and reasonable question now hangs heavily: Is there anything this man will not do to retain power?

Perhaps I have been naïve. Using Obamacare as an example, I vehemently opposed the bill and was repulsed by the shady procedural tactics, bribes and outright lies used to pass it into law. However, the president worked within the system, utilizing the Democrat dominated Congress, to pass the law. They won the election.

Perhaps I rationalized. Obama played games with the recess appointment process to have his way. But, Republicans played similar games in the past.

Perhaps I was blind to reality. Some of Obama’s prior executive orders came close to, maybe crossed, the line of infringement on the powers of Congress. But, all presidents stretch the bounds of executive branch power.

I won’t go so far to say I have given Obama the benefit of the doubt; I’ve distrusted him from the beginning. However, I attempted to take a fairly reasonable and totally rationale view when assessing his policies. I’ve always thought his election was a tragic mistake, but we, as the voter collective, have made mistakes before, but, somehow muddled through and overcame them.

I do not put myself among those who claimed the sky was falling each time Obama did something unpopular in their view. Perhaps I should have. Nor have I overly concerned myself with birth certificates, college records, eating dog or smoking dope in college. Again, perhaps I should have. I reasoned there were more urgent and meaningful policy challenges posed by the Obama administration. And, there were.

Writers more eloquent than I have opined about the Rose Garden speech. However, I will be as frank and clear as my talent allows.

I write not only of the November election but, also, the four plus months until then.

Barack Obama poses a clear and present danger to our freedom and the rule of law in our country. Until the November election, our elected representatives in Congress who are a coequal branch of our government and, therefore, own one-third stewardship of the Constitution, must not allow this president to illegally impose his will on the people.

And, we the people, the voters, must do anything and everything within our power, short of violence, to rid our country of this man who would disregard and trample upon everything we hold sacred.

    Right on, Rodney Page, right on. I feel exactly the same way. It is getting frightening how he totally disregards the limits of his office, how he obviously holds the constitution in contempt and scorn. And I am really worried at how he does not seem at all worried at how he is being found more and more offensive and dangerous to more and more people, as if he knows something we do not have access to. We and our whole country are in danger until we can vote this man out of office.

    Feminism has now positioned itself as the vanguard of the Left, shifting the political discourse from the economic and racial to the social and increasingly the sexual.  What was once a socialistic assault on property and enterprise has become a social and sexual attack on the family, marriage, and masculinity.  This marks a truly new kind of politics, the most personal and thus potentially the most total politics ever devised: the politics of private life and sexual relations.

    SEXUAL POLITICS IS BOTH FEMINIST AND HOMOSEXUAL, WITH NO DISTINCT LINE SEPARATING THEM{my emphasis}.  Feminism has been the more overtly political doctrine.  Until recently, gays asked mostly to be left alone and as such gained widespread sympathy.

    Chicago thugs are Chicago thugs. And unlike what some regard as the more pragmatic Bill Clinton, Chicago thugs are never pragmatic, and that applies to the latest thug in the mayor’s office.

    Obama is a rank and file commie and to anyone who has read about his childhood with an objective mind can tell you, it is not surprising. His father, mother, and her parents were commie’s so why does it surprise you that Barack is one. He is! But you can’t say it! Oh no, you can’t say it because the independents would desert you. Bull. And while I don’t always agree with Rush, the dumb-ass Republicans better start listening to him because if Obama wins, changes may well be made to allow him to run again and keep on “fixing” America. If that happens America really is dead.

    Oh you naive child.  How many times must you be bit befor you stop putting your hand in the snakes mouth.  This is a man controled by handlers that will stop at nothing to change America.  I fear you will live to regret the next 4 years.

    If this is how he acts before the election, I quake in fear about how he will act IF he wins the election.

    Violence is headed our way whether you want it or not.  Do you listen to Liberals?  Have you seen the hooded freaks in Oakland?  Do you think they will just all of a sudden forget the lifelong indoctrination and  become members of reality and remap their ideology on logic?  Not likely.  Or, will we grab our collective balls and finally rid ourselves of the Liberal menace once and for all?   The time for talk is quickly ending.

      Rodney, you just echoed my thoughts exactly, except that mine happened when Obama recess-appointed 3 people while Congress wasn’t in recess.

      The reason Obama got away with it is because Congress did nothing about it except say they disapproved. It’s the same reason Obama made this current play, besides the need for votes. Everything that happens now will be on Congress’ shoulders. They’ve had numerous reasons and opportunities to step in and make a stand, but wouldn’t do it.
      Unless voters have sold-out liberals representing them in the House and/or Senate (which I unfortunately do!), threaten them with losing their seats if they let Obama keep acting like dictator.
