The 'Post-November' Obama
Rush Limbaugh recently challenged the notion that President Obama is merely out of touch with the will of the American people:
"I'm sure that Obama realizes a certain percentage of this country is ready to rebel. That's, I'm sure, part of why he feels happy. Mission accomplished. Success is mine. Obama's only complaint is he wants more credit for what's going on. He thinks he's revolutionary himself. He thinks he is the one we've all been waiting for. He is convinced that we don't know what's good for us. All leftists are that way. They all have that arrogance and contempt, and the more we oppose and the more loudly we oppose, the more their resolve intensifies. I mean, did Obama moderate when Scott Brown won the Kennedy seat, the so-called Kennedy seat? I don't think he did. How about all the other primaries that the GOP won, did they compromise? Chris Christie wins in New Jersey, did we see Obama say, "You know what, I'm outta touch here. The people are sending me a message. I better moderate." Did we see that? We didn't. We saw the resolve stiffen, if you will. We saw appointments of more anti-capitalist people to his administration in the guise of consumer protectionists."
Limbaugh also cited an article from the Los Angeles Times which reported that Obama's strategy after the midterm elections will be to use executive authority to continue implementing his agenda. Obama told us that he intended to fundamentally transform the United States. So far, he is well on his way. If he is determined to proceed with his plans, he will find anyway possible to achieve them. The second half of the president's term may well endanger our country and our freedoms even more than the first half already has.
