Obama Wakes Up Thinking â€œWho Will I Hate Todayâ€
By: Ken Hughes
The Obama strategy of giving the country someone or something to hate seems to be wearing thin. Thereâ€™s been a minimum of praise for anyone or anything coming from the Obama White House, instead itâ€™s been a continual barrage by past generations of things gone wrong in America. George Walker Bush has taken the brunt of Obamaâ€™s criticism. This isnâ€™t a new tactic by a president. Franklin D. Roosevelt used it on Herbert Hoover his predecessor after 1933 to 1945 the years he was president. In fact much of Obamaâ€™s strategy evolves from Rooseveltâ€™s play book thatâ€™s been used for years by the liberal wing of the Democratic Party.
Iâ€™m not sure who said it or if it was that elusive â€¦â€¦they say. â€œEvery government needs a public enemy to justify their existence.â€ This is the first administration I can recall to turn on the very people they are accountable to, we the people and our intuitions. Obama seems to be picking off American Icons one at a time. No sooner does it prove unproductive that he moves on to the next target with little or no remorse for the trouble he causes these intuitions and their people.
Given the circumstances of Obamaâ€™s youth itâ€™s difficult for the average person to understand his hostility toward America and its institutions. He may have grown up more tolerated than loved but he did have the best of opportunities for an education and for learning the social graces that would enamor him in later life in the Chicago political circles. Obamaâ€™s polish and charisma have elevated him to the very top in his profession. Obama has now become the bulls eye on a political target, staying there may take more cool than he possesses. Obama promised America in his first year he would take America to Valhalla a promise he has been unable to keep, as heâ€™s been unable or unwilling to keep as he has most of his campaign promises.
The game of politics isnâ€™t new to Washington, itâ€™s been played by experts that could bury Obama in cool. Some are still there in the background waiting to the right moment to hit the bullâ€™s eye Obama is teetering on. The Obama gang of three, Obama, Pelosi and Reid have had their moment in the spotlight now itâ€™s time for a reality check of who really runs Washington politics. All itâ€™s going to take to bring congress back to reality is for Lobbyist to threaten to cut off political contributions and pop go the weasels. Itâ€™s more probable than not Harry Reid is finished as a senator, Nancy Pelosi is finished as speaker of the house and Obama has made himself a one term president. Liberals will see the demise of these three as a sacrifice for the greater good. Conservatives will see it as purging for the sake of the nation greater good.
This past year  the public has seen congress and the president walk over the constitution as though it didnâ€™t exist. There is an arrogance in Washington unprecedented in the history of this nation. This congress and this president have burdened future generations with a debt they can never get out from under By the time the debt comes due America will not just owe China, China will own America. It’s doubtful China will be as forgiving as America has always been of foreign debts. China and India are becoming what many nations throughout history have strived for, to be the ultimate super power in the world. Both of these nations are fully aware the ultimate power is economic and not by using guns, contraire to the official propaganda weâ€™re heard for years.
Now the question becomes how does America dig its way out of the financial problems created this past year by an overzealous congress and president? I have a suggestion and that is a shift away from a one party majority in congress. In my opinion there needs to be a third party to arbitrate differences between parties. Ten to fifteen percent of both house of congress would be sufficient to make the difference provided the ten to fifteen percent remain independent and not be coursed by either party. Two is an agreement three is a consensus.
We continually hear from both political parties say there is no need for a third party. As we look back at how far past congresses have drifted from the rules set down in the constitution we can disagree. Itâ€™s been the lack of restraint due mainly to how congress has structured their procedures that gives a few power over the many. The constitution calls for one member one vote, not a coursed vote. Bipartisan means nothing the constitution has never sanctioned political parties as the means of creating legislation. Forming political parties was the simplest way to arrive at a consensus, now it’s time to add a third party to congress to further guarantee a consensus.
Not in the history of this nation have the American people taken such a beating from their elected officials as they have in 2009. The president and congress have used every derogatory name know to man depicting those who donâ€™t happen to agree with them. President Obama was elected by a majority of the voters, not only black voters. Now he and his people have the audacity to call anyone with a disagreement a racist. It matters not who utters the words we know where they originate.
There have always been third parties who generally concentrated on electing a president. My suggestion is bypass the presidency and concentrate on both house of congress. There was a time when gentlemen were sent to congress to represent the public now theyâ€™re lawyers for the most part. It shouldnâ€™t take millions of dollars to run for congress nor should the public have to pay this is another of those situations where states rights should prevail.
May I suggest if you want your country back start now selecting your next congress person and make them swear an oath to abide by their campaign promises and constitutional law.
