O on the War Path

It becomes clearer and clearer what Obama’s campaign plan will be: War.

Every day the president is declaring war on someone. Today it was the oil companies. Previously it was Wall Street. Earlier the Catholic Church. He certainly has been warring with the military, decimating their ranks and reducing their coverages. Insurance companies and doctors have been attacked. He doesn’t like free markets. He would like to decimate Fox News. He battles Republicans in the House. He works against small business entrepreneurs. And after the oral arguments this week, Obama has the Supreme Court in his crosshairs.

A White House Insider writes of the administration’s panic over the possible rejection of Obamacare by the Supremes. He says they will “purposely create widespread chaos throughout the American healthcare industry.” They will “muck up the administrative machine so badly there will be delays, confusion, and then anger. They are serious about it.

“Obama will then point to the chaos and make an ‘I told you so’ move to the American people. They plan to have him run against Congress, run against the SC, run against alleged racism, run against Wall Street. He is running for nothing and against everything.”

Yes it’s everything and everyone all right; everything that made this country great – independence, strength and prosperity. Why? They’re not something a tyrant understands. He just sees them as impediments to his own power.

You’d think Obama’d run out of things to tear down, but there always seems to be something that raises his ire. And, if nothing is working, there’s always the race issue. Remember when James Carville warned there may be race riots this summer? With all the anger he’s brewed in the Trayvon Martin case, it wouldn’t be a surprise.

It’s not your standard incumbent reelection strategy, but rules have never been a barrier for Obama. With the media watching his back, he can attack. The best defense is an offense, don’t they say?

If Mitt Romney is the Republican nominee I’m not sure he can survive it. Romney seems risk averse and challenged even in easy situations like the Jay Leno show. He has never linked up with the base and Tea Party anger conservatives feel. I don’t see him as our attack dog; more like the one who whimpers and slips away.

But with Obama, every day is December 7, 1941. And it will get even more intense as November approaches.
