Left Swoons, Right Fumes, Obama Keeps Detached Cool while Dismantling America

Barack Obama has had a busy week.

Our President, the constitutional expert and brilliant legal scholar (No, really: just ask him), has decided to take matters into his own hands.  His accomplices on the left are all a tingle while the conservative majority is outraged, but almost no one has recognized his actions for what they are.

The President knows his days are numbered and is preparing an orderly retreat while looting our constitutional heritage and setting the palaces of American Democracy ablaze.

Although he loves the perks, the President is clearly tired of the job, realizes that re-election is most unlikely, and has decided that now is the time to take advantage of the twelve short months he has remaining to do as much damage as he can to the American nation as we know it.  His motives were always clear to those who would see. His wife expressed his guiding principles best during the 2008 campaign:

“Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”

Obama is now going to move as fast as he can to make us “a different place as a nation”. His allies in the Democrat party like Nancy Pelosi are proud and “glad that the president took the lead”, and the media applaud what they see as bold executive action, but this week’s actions are so politically suicidal that it can only mean that Obama knows the end is very near.

Like Carter before him, Obama’s actions will ensure a generation of American conservatism, but unlike Carter, he is taking the time to carefully plot his retreat and try to permanently deconstruct the American Nation. Although it is assured that most of these imperial edicts will be held to be unconstitutional and vacated, there is the added benefit that these actions will throw the Republicans off their game and lure them them into a fight that will let Obama make the specious claim that he standing up for the rights of Americans while he guts those very same rights.

Well rested after yet another 4 million dollar, two week vacation at taxpayer expense, Obama touched down in Washington Monday, rested up for a day and then with breathtaking audacity, announced Wednesday that he was brushing aside constitutional strictures and time honored precedents to make recess appointments while the Senate was not in recess.

Former Ohio attorney general, perennial political loser and Democrat Hack Richard Cordray was installed as the Director of the latest State apparatus, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, brought to you by those brilliant financial watchdogs Chris Dodd and Barney Frank. Before the day was out, Mr. Cordray expressed his thanks to the President and outlined his guiding principles on the CFPB website. Interestingly, his remarks were simultaneously cross-posted on the Huffington Post.

Fair and balanced all the way.

It is understandable why Mr. Cordray would win Obama’s heart and attention, for he shares the President’s disdain for Constitutional boundaries. Here he explains why virtually any legislation that the Congress might choose to pass should be deemed constitutional because if such action has even “incidental effects on the economy” it would be a “valid exercise of congressional authority”.  (Money quotes is around 1:30)

Within hours, Obama spun the Wheel of Presidential Appointments a second time and installed three new union lackeys as members of the discredited National Labor Relations Board.  The NLRB increased it’s infamy in 2011 with it’s stunning lawsuit against Boeing’s investment in South Carolina, jeopardizing the company’s billion dollar investment and thousands of jobs.

Feeling like he was in the groove, on Thursday the President floated the idea of a massive mortgage forgiveness scheme, flirted with releasing a known Taliban drug trafficker and terrorist killer from Gitmo so he could sit across from the administration’s minions at “peace talks” with the deposed outlaw regime, and announced the decimation of the American military. There was also talk about sharing nuclear defense secrets with our friends in the Russian Federation.

In the summer of 1944 as the allies closed in from all sides, the madman across the Rhein was obsessed with the destruction of Paris.  Recognizing that the City of Lights was a beacon to the entire free world, he ordered it’s elimination, and burned up the telephone lines between the Reich and Paris.

“I demand to know! Yes or no?  Is Paris burning now?

In this election year, as the forces of American Electoral Democracy close in on that other beacon of light to the world, Washington DC, we can expect that same degree of fervor as the Last Marxist President tries to immolate the American Experiment for good.
