Obama Gave Himself Away Last Night
Lit with the bright flash of summer lightening, three words showed America why B.H. Obama is so spectacularly unsuited to hold the office of the Presidency. It was late in the third debate and Romney and Obama were sparing about drones. Mitt had just made the point that the Middle East was still a muddle. Obama replied, talking of partnerships throughout the region. And then, tired and frustrated, Obama let the mask slip, and the true visage of our despotic narcissist was revealed.
From the NY Times transcript:
President Obama: So across the board, we are engaging them in building capacity in these countries and we have stood on the side of democracy. One thing I think Americans should be proud of - when Tunisians began to protest, this nation, me, my administration stood with them earlier than just about any other country.
"This nation, me."
"This nation, me" perfectly captures why Americas fought and died in a Revolutionary War against King George III.
This nation, me echo's history most despotic players. Louis XIV famously said, L'état, c'est moi, the state, it is I. Let's review some of those who have succumbed to the allure of absolute power and then conflated it with a state sponsored cult of personality; Stalin, Castro, Hugo Chavez, Mao Tse-Tung and Mussolini. Did I miss anyone?
Mr. President, here's what we say in America:
...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Not ever "This nation, me"!
Our national election is only two weeks from today.
