Seeing his popularity diminishing before his eyes, Barack Obama sought comfort in the steely arms of Big Labor yesterday. The most criticism-averse president in history whined that it was “special interests” who opposed his agenda — and these people were not very nice. Looking deliberately into the camera, he tried out a down-home phrase to show solidarity with the union rabble. “They talk about me like a dog,” said the Cornpone Kenyan. “That’s not in my prepared remarks,” he lied, “but it’s true.”
By recent standards, he’s lived a charmed life. His left-wing friends in the anti-(American) war movement are not in the streets comparing him to Hitler or calling for his assassination. Glenn Beck’s crowds gather to pray.
But there may be a reason he receives less than universal adulation, even occasionally scathing remarks about his job as president: he deserves them, and a Hell of a lot more.
This president has elevated members of the radical Left to the heights of power. He selected “Green Jobs” czar Van Jones, the 9/11 Truther and Marxist, who also believed Hurricane Katrina might be an inside job. His current Science Czar, John Holdren, has written in support of compulsory abortion for American woman and absorbing our national soveriegnty into “A Comprehensive Planetary Regime.” The man entrusted with enforcing justice, Eric Holder, once sought Bill Clinton’s pardon of Marc Rich, believes America is “a nation of cowards,” and is busy dragging tough sheriffs to court while letting Black Panthers get off scot free.
Obama has placed the most precious document in our nation, the Constitution, at the whim of judicial activists. His followed up his first Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, who believes convicted felons should have the right to vote, with Elena Kagan, an outspoken advocate of supplanting the U.S. Constitution with foreign law. Kagan’s judicial heroes include Cass Sunstein, Thurgood Marshall, and insane Israeli Aharon Barak.
No one on the Left, however extreme, is unwelcome in the Obama White House. He has accepted at least $50,000 from Democratic bundler and Code Pink founder Jodie Evans, who has since enjoyed close personal access to Obama and other White House personnel.
His closest advisers are, if it is possible, further Left than he is. Obama has “a kind of a mind-meld” with Chicago pal Valerie Jarrett, whose Office of Public Engagement is deeply involved in the government propaganda effort. And his most intimate adviser, Michelle Obama, has admitted she is a newcomer to the concept of patriotism.
Griping about being an object of ridicule takes great chutzpah, indeed. Obama is the master of Alinskyite mockery. When he is not erecting straw man arguments for his opponents, he is chuckling about their kidneys failing. He forces American taxpayers to underwrite his propaganda. And if you disagree with him, he’ll haul you before the United Nations and accuse you of human rights violations — as he has the State of Arizona and the two-thirds of Americans who support their common sense immigration law.
Despite tripling the federal deficit, raising unemployment, and putting Americans on the hook for whole new sectors of the economy, he cannot admit he has made a mistake. His response is to blame the American people and run for support to his left-wing union buddies, who are beset by their own legacy of violence.
Lie down with dogs, get up with fleas.
