Outside the Asylum
On Tuesday morning, President Obama signaled that more of his “change we can believe in” was approaching from south of the border. He promoted Cecilia Muñoz, a former lobbyist for the racist hate group National Council of La Raza, to the position of Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council.
I have no doubt that Barack Obama daydreams about appointing himself an eleventy-star generalissimo, wearing a garish uniform he found on Tinpots-R-Us and assigning himself a title which would make Idi Amin blush. But the dream and the reality of imposing a dictatorship on the United States live a far cry from one another.
Because conservatives are a variegated lot, the possibility looms that some of the candidates will extend their campaigns or even step out to third-party status. Such long-term division would create a split movement, hike expenses into the stratosphere and allow the Barack Obama machine to further coordinate the game plan.
Last week, my esteemed colleague John Myers donned his swami hat and peered into the future. As I perused his prognostications, one in particular caught my eye: “Expect us to have to endure another four years with Barack Obama as President.” I recoiled in horror at the very prospect.
From time to time, liberals manage to stumble onto the proper course of action; although their discoveries routinely fall into the “fire enough arrows and you’ll eventually hit a tree” department. Witness Federal Judge John Bates’ decision to turn back a challenge to section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Vice President Joe Biden has turned out to be a gaffe machine. He appears incapable of leaving his office without tripping over his own tongue. Biden suffers from the sort of verbal diarrhea which makes opposition researchers feel all warm and fuzzy.
It should come as no surprise that last Sunday, embattled Attorney General Eric Holder told the sad remnant of the once-mighty New York Times that calls for his resignation in the wake of Operation Fast and Furious are (brace yourself) racist.
During his “60 Minutes” interview with a fawning Steve Kroft two Sundays ago, President Barack Obama said: “I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln — just in terms of what we’ve gotten done in modern history.”
Tim Tebow, who began the season clinging desperately to a spot on the Broncos’ bench, has emerged as The Mile High City’s man of the year. For some people, the quarterback has become a lightning rod for controversy.
President Barack Obama and the bulk of the corporate media continue to act as if “Operation Fast and Furious” is a bad movie sequel featuring Vin Diesel and the Rock flexing their muscles and struggling with dialogue as opposed to a poorly conceived and implemented Department of Justice “gunwalking” program.
