For five years, Rush has been saying he wishes Barack Obama fails in his plans to “fundamentally remake America.” Few on our side would disagree. We recognize that success for Obama means destruction for America. We well understand that America has willingly put her neck in a noose and begged Obama to yank it a little tighter. Going about his diabolical schemes in a workmanlike manner, Obama first destroyed private investment in corporations with his takeover of the auto industry, then destroyed the student loan industry, the institution of marriage, freedom to practice religion, the United States Military, our national sovereignty, our influence in the world, and on and on.
Last weekend, two important right-wing commentators offered essays supporting the unfortunately minority view that Obama is NOT incompetent but rather purposeful in the damage he inflicts on us. Understandably, most Americans have so far chalked up Obama’s damage to the byproduct of a bumbling fool’s Administration.
Nevertheless, this is not at all a simple “either/or” proposition. Obama is clearly an enemy of America, but assigning him an all-powerful “James Bond-like villain” status collapses and simply doesn’t work. He’s evil, but not that smart.
It is entirely possible for criminals to be violent and destructive but ultimately not very smart. We see stories of would-be arsonists burned to death by their own incompetence. YouTube videos show us Islamists blowing up as they mishandle IEDs.
Obama is no different. Yes, his Syria adventure has fumbled away American influence in the Middle East; but of far greater importance, he has given the TEA party movement an issue to coalesce around.
Until a fortnight ago, the Democrats and their puppet media were gleefully saying “The TEA party movement is dead” and asking “Where are they?” with Cheshire Cat grins. Now they know.
Truth be told, we were silent because the Democrats and their GOP lackeys had carefully orchestrated the past few months to avoid giving us anything to attack. They put funding Obamacare, Amnesty, and the Debt Ceiling on the back burners in hopes of pulling them out and voting on them during a brief time span.
Thanks to the Community Organizer, however, we found an issue to flex our muscles over; and flex them we did. We made the phones melt in Congressional offices and single-handedly killed any chance of a congressionally approved war on Syria. We did that, not the Democratic Underground, not Chuck Schumer, not the media, but WE THE PEOPLE did. The TEA party is just getting started again.
Obama might be evil, but he sure isn’t Professor Moriarty.
