Observers have to feel that the real Obama is hiding in place sight. He truly is a Marxist/Socialist. The media, feeling this might be damaging to him, pretend that anyone who recognizes this is a racist. That lets O get by with everything.
Take, for instance, his commencement address at Ohio State University, he told graduates, “you’ll hear voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s the root of all our problems, even as they do their best to gum up the works; or that tyranny always lurks just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, creative, unique experiment in self-rule is just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.”
Reject the voices that warn of big government and tyranny? Doesn’t sound much like something Washington or Jefferson would ever say. Well, what hasn’t the government destroyed once it got involved in it? Our education system is corrupt and defunct; meddling in business has put it at almost a complete stop; now government turns its attention to ruining the greatest health care system in the world. I could also mention how it has diminished the family, especially the black family via welfare. Entrepreneurship and creativity have taken a dive since he took office and our military has been diminished. Trustworthy? Only to the socialist fanatic.
Obama continued. “We have never been a people who place all our faith in government to solve our problems, nor do we want it to. But we don’t think the government is the source of all our problems, either. Because we understand that this democracy is ours. As citizens, we understand that America is not about what can be done for us. It’s about what can be done by us, together, through the hard and frustrating but absolutely necessary work of self-government.”
Yes, democracy is messy and a pain to dictators like Obama. He does want government to solve all our problems. And nothing is too small to escape their attention: light bulbs, cheeseburgers, big gulps, what we think and the words that come out of our mouths. The president is disengenuous to say “America is not about what can be done for us.” Now it is! He swerves into the liberation theology idea of salvation that only occurs when everyone acts a certain way and that is the excuse to make us do it.
“The cynics may be the loudest voices — but they accomplish the least. It’s the silent disruptors (sic) — those who do the long, hard, committed work of change — that gradually push this country in the right direction, and make the most lasting difference.”
Could the cynics be people like Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and Wayne LaPierre? “Disruptors” like Saul Alinsky, Bill Ayres? Leftist professors?
Ohio State gave O an honorary doctorate, applauding his “unwavering belief in the ability to unite people around a politics of purpose.”
You mean like his getting Republicans and Democrats to work together for the good of the nation? Nah.
Later this month Obama will bring his opinions to commencement speeches at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., and Morehouse College in Atlanta.
