Lies We Can Believe In

In Obama We Trust

Photo Credit: SultanKnish.Blogspot.com

Today such a man occupies the highest office in the land and rules accordingly. What the left once practiced as civil disobedience has become tyranny. Under Obama, the country is turning lawless because its chief executive is lawless. But Obama’s rise to power is a symptom of deep-rooted problems in the country. They cannot be fixed just by voting him out of office, because there are other Obamas out there.

Obama’s rise to power is a mirror of the national problems that got him there. All the things wrong with him are reflected, to some extent, in the men and women who voted for him. It could not be otherwise. His lawlessness is a symptom of an existing lawlessness. His contempt for values and morals, for tradition and history, for the nation itself, is a symptom of the contempt that the left has fed over the years until it has become a poison in the national bloodstream.

To truly defeat Obama, we have to be able to defeat those negative traits as well; to understand what gave someone like him power over so many people. It is not enough to just remove him from office, because unless we understand the corruption that made his rise possible, he, or someone like him, will rise again.

  1. I think the thesis that Obama would refuse to leave office is absurd atr best. While I certainly do not agree with many of his policies – particularly his treatment of Israel – I do not believe he (or any other American president) would refuse to leave office. It is not part of American culture and it certainly would not be supported by any other government institution. Even Nixon did not attempt a coup. Not liking a president is one thing, but believing he is a fascist usurper of power is another. This takes the birther weirdness to the next level.

    This is easily the best summary of Barack Obama and the circumstances leading to his becoming president that I have ever read. Truly an example of the results of our refusal to judge someone by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. Although I never met or heard of Obama while I was at Columbia — even though we were there at the same time and took courses in the School of International Affairs — I did encounter the phenomenon of arrogant, preachy students who used words with no content, and professors who were afraid to cut them off and simply educate. At the time, I viewed such students and their antics as harmless — of course, such students would at best receive gentlemen's Cs and sink into lifetime anonymity. Sadly, at age 22, I was very wrong. I hope the US is wiser than I was, and elects Mitt Romney, who is Obama's antithesis. That will be our national "teshuva".
