Letter: Beware the agitating rabble-rouser
Wednesday, August 8, 2012
I have wondered what an Obama Doctrine would look like. So far, his "Hope and Change" looks like this:
- Divide America with class warfare. Pit American against American by preaching envy and jealousy of success.
- Pander to the Hispanic vote while shielding his attorney general's involvement in the death or injury of, at last count, a border patrol officer, an ICE agent and more than 300 Mexican Nationals in a flawed gunrunning scheme.
- Fool seniors by diverting $500 billion from Medicare to the abyss of the "unaffordable" Health Care Act to punish them after the election.
- Scrap NASA and outsource our space program to Russia.
- Force a religion to violate its own ethics.
- Reduce our armed forces while China and Iran increase theirs.
- Alienate allies by cancelling missile defense for Poland and the Czech Republic. Leak classified intelligence regarding Israel.
- Rule by imperial decree. Ignore the separation of powers set forth in our Constitution.
In essence, President Obama said he would fundamentally transform America. He is transforming it into a banana republic dictatorship. We do not have a leader. We have a nefarious agitating rabble-rouser who would be king.
