To be sure, politics in America and especially in Washington has never been a bastion of virtue. But America has never seen anything as bad as the Chicago style politics of the Obama administration. Obama & Company are the most corrupt and diabolically evil people ever to control the Executive branch of our government. They have an agenda to “fundamentally change” America and they will do so no matter what the people, the Congress, the Constitution or, the courts say to the contrary.
Many conservatives scratch their heads saying with the economy in the shape it is in there is no way America would reelect Barack Obama. Yet we know it is possible. Team Obama are experts at deflecting blame. And, they will do everything in their power to make this election about anything other than Obama’s record. But, more importantly they will be focused on the Electoral College votes. Please take a look at this Real Clear Politics Election Map. You will see that by their analysis Obama has a lock on 253 electoral College votes and Romney has a lock on only 170. That leaves 115 as toss ups. Obama only needs to win 17 of those toss-up votes. A win in Ohio would do it or a win in New Hampshire and Virgina would do it. You can bet that Team Obama will spend a lot of their money on what they think are the most vulnerable states.
More than a few conservative bloggers understand that Obama very well could win reelection. Their fall back position is to make sure the Republicans keep control of the House and take control of the Senate. This would make it almost impossible for Obama to do much harm in a second term. If you agree with this fall back plan, I encourage you to read this article, Obama’s Second Term Transformation Plans, at American Thinker. The author, Steve McCann, sees an angle that I should have seen but didn’t.
The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama’s first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of “transforming America” in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. That is why his re-election team is virtually ignoring the plight of incumbent or prospective Democratic Party office holders.
The most significant accomplishment of Obama’s first term is to make Congress irrelevant. Under the myopic and blindly loyal leadership of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats have succeeded in creating an imperial and, in a second term, a potential dictatorial presidency
The birth of multi-thousand page laws was not an aberration. This tactic was adopted so the bureaucracy controlled by Obama appointees would have sole discretion in interpreting vaguely written laws and enforcing thousands of pages of regulations they and not Congress would subsequently write.
For example, in the 2,700 pages of ObamaCare there are more than 2,500 references to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. There are more than 700 instances when he or she is instructed that they “shall” do something and more than 200 times when they “may” take at their sole discretion some form of regulatory action. On 139 occasions, the law mentions that the “Secretary determines.” In essence one person, appointed by and reporting to the president, will be in charge of the health care of 310 million Americans once ObamaCare is fully operational in 2014.
The same is true in the 2,319 pages of the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act which confers nearly unlimited power on various agencies to control by fiat the nation’s financial, banking and investment sectors. The bill also creates new agencies, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, not subject to any oversight by Congress. This overall process was repeated numerous times with other legislation all with the intent of granting unfettered power to the executive branch controlled Barack Obama and his radical associates.
There’s more. Much more. Please read this article. It should scare the hell out of you. Clearly winning control of the House and the Senate is not enough to stop Obama’s planned transformation of America. Remember that there are 115 electoral votes up for grabs and Obama only needs 17 of them. If you live in one of these toss-up states, you will have to do everything possible to turn out the anti-Obama vote. If you have family or friends that live in one of these states, contact them and find out what you can do to help turn out our voters on election day. I can’t imagine what our country will look like after four more years of a dictatorial Obama.
BTW, guess who thinks they will be ready for a presidential run in 2016? No, I am not talking about Hillary. According to this Chicago Sun Times article from last month, Rahm “Never let a crisis go to waste” Emanuel is making plans. How scary is that?
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
