Yes, it’s early, but I cannot help thinking about 2012 and the possibility that we will be able to rid ourselves of the malignant, narcissistic, megalomaniacal, economically ignorant, scarily incompetent Marxist who currently occupies the White House.
Those of us on the Right get slammed when we refer to Obama and his minions as Marxists, but don’t take our word for it. Take THEIR OWN WORDS for it. Obama himself telling us that we need to spread the wealth (here, too). Anita Dunn and Ron Bloom have publicly admired Mao. Van Jones and his support for cop-killers and communism. Nancy Pelosi scoffing at the idea that a mandate to purchase medical insurance is unconstitutional. Max Baucus telling us that the health care reform act is really nothing more than an attempt to redistribute wealth. Andy Stern’s SEIU thugs trying to silence dissent. Alcee Hastings telling us that they make up the House rules as they go along. And the latest Democrat to throw the Constitution (the document, not the ship) under the bus is Rep. Phil Hare of (drum roll please…) Illinois:
When asked where in the Constitution Phil Hare finds the power to take over the economy, our healthcare, and any other thing he feels that he’s smarter than us to take over, Congressman Hare admits that he doesn’t care about that silly old Constitution thingie.
Video is here.
I truly fear for the future of this country.
However, there is someone who could rid us of this troublesome President. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Paul Ryan, Representative from Wisconsin.
He gave a speech last week at the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs and it’s just brilliant:
Last week, on March 21st, Congress enacted a new Intolerable Act. Congress passed the Health Care bill – or I should say, one political party passed it – over a swelling revolt by the American people. The reform is an atrocity. It mandates that every American must buy health insurance, under IRS scrutiny. It sets up an army of federal bureaucrats who ultimately decide for you how you should receive Health Care, what kind, and how much…or whether you don’t qualify at all. Never has our government claimed the power to decide when each of us has lived well enough or long enough to be refused life-saving medical assistance.
This presumptuous reform has put this nation … once dedicated to the life and freedom of every person … on a long decline toward the same mediocrity that the social welfare states of Europe have become.
Americans are preparing to fight another American Revolution, this time, a peaceful one with election ballots…but the “causes” of both are the same:
Should unchecked centralized government be allowed to grow and grow in power … or should its powers be limited and returned to the people?
Should irresponsible leaders in a distant capital be encouraged to run up scandalous debts without limit that crush jobs and stall prosperity … or should the reckless be turned out of office and a new government elected to live within its means?
Should America bid farewell to exceptional freedom and follow the retreat to European social welfare paternalism … or should we make a new start, in the faith that boundless opportunities belong to the workers, the builders, the industrious, and the free?
We are at the beginning of an election campaign like you’ve never seen before!
Of course, Democrats will find a way to demonize him, but this man really needs to be in the White House. He may be a bit young, and he is a Representative, not a Governor or a Senator, but he is truly one of the best and brightest in politics today and I would vote for him in a heartbeat.
Some people are making a case for General Petraeus, and I’d be more than happy to support a Petraeus/Ryan ticket. Pretty much anything is better than what we’ve got now. I honestly never thought I’d miss Bill Clinton. *sigh*
Updated, 4/8/10: In the interest of fairness, here is a piece byAndrew McCarthy at National Review in which he states that Petraeus may have an “Israel problem.” We’re going to have to wait and see where the truth really lies. I don’t want to believe this, but do want to put it out there.
