Our Community Organizer-in-Chief is trying to fundamentally transform America. Here is how:
This is Brilliant. This is exactly what I was thinking and trying to say in earlier posts but I lack the writer’s talent. Emphasis mine, link to article at the bottom. Enjoy:
Some commentators wonder why President Obama always engages in brinksmanship. Why can’t he meet Republicans halfway, they ask, the way Bill Clinton did. Let me try to respond.
Many of us warned that Obama is not, by nature or ideology, a conciliator. He is not a centrist, and he’s not someone who is interested in the other side’s ideas. He knows what he wants to do, and he is hell-bent on doing it. He is not just playing hardball as a matter of strategy; he has no interest in compromise and is angling to get his way entirely. And he wants to further damage the Republican brand in the process.
The way Obama probably looks at it is that either Republicans will cave and he will get most of what he wants, or the Republicans will hold fast and he can effectively blame them for taking us over the fiscal cliff. You’ll note that in neither of these explanations is there a hint that Obama is motivated to do what is best for the country. He intends to act in his own best interests and those of his party, and decidedly against the interests of the GOP and, ultimately, the nation.
The Chicago way. Hardball. One winner. One Loser. Done by working the masses into a frenzy. You want to know what a community organizer does – Obama is doing it. That is why all these ‘crises’ are man made. He needs them. Negotiating only works if your opponent is rational. When will the GOP learn Obama is not. The article concludes:
Obama is playing chicken, all right, but he’s not driving his own car; he’s driving the United States of America. People can quibble endlessly over whether he is intentionally trying to harm America. The better way to frame it is that Obama is, by his own admission, trying to fundamentally transform America.
His transforming vision means continuing to expand the welfare state, major tax hikes, increased spending and obstructing reform of our already insolvent entitlement programs, the major debt drivers that are leading us toward the real “fiscal cliff.”
Obama’s policies in furtherance of his vision — as clearly laid out during the campaign and even more so during these “fiscal cliff” negotiations — left unchecked will complete the fiscal destruction of the nation.
So if you insist, don’t call it intentional destruction. Call it, euphemistically, “the intentional fundamental transformation of America that will necessarily destroy her.”
