I was reading a piece at Breitbart this morning about the Obama Campaign and the Bain attack strategy (emphasis mine):
President Barack Obama, who has no business or economic qualifications whatsoever, accused rival Mitt Romney in a CBS interview of being unable to grasp “the economy as a whole.” Success and profit in the private sector, Obama said, were only part of the economy: “[A]s president, my job is to think about the workers,” he said, defining his role in terms peculiar to the world of community organizing and Big Labor.
In the interview, excerpts of which were released by CBS today, the president doubled down on his campaign’s attack on Mitt Romney for “outsourcing” (i.e. offshoring)–a claim that has been exhaustively debunked by fact-checking organizations that are typically partial to Obama and his party. He allowed that Romney “says…he understands the economy and the private sector,” but maintained that “there are questions there that have to be asked” about Romney’s successful business record.
This whole thing is a sham. The best interests of All Americans never even enters our President’s mind. Representing his politics and ideology honestly and selling his vision to the voters isn’t even a consideration. The American People are never going to have an opportunity to compare the two sides and make an informed decision at the voting booth.
Then I realized this behavior, this tactic, is the M.O. of convicted drug dealer, perjurer, and Speedway bomber Brett Kimberlin’s Velvet Revolution. As Lee Stranahan points out the Velvet Revolution states:
The tactics and the power of the Democrats and progressives in this country have not been sufficient to check the actions of a corrupt Republican agenda. The left has not been able to develop the necessary tactics to win this battle for the heart of America, despite the fact that there are many fine progressive organizations with many members. The leadership of the Democratic Party has generally engaged in a pattern of appeasement, and few organizations have had the clout or backbone to go toe to toe with the extreme right. In many major battles recently, the Democrats have rolled over…
It’s scary enough when there are general citizens so skewed that they are acting on this strategy. But when the leader of the free world embraces it? There’s nothing appeasing about Obama’s tactics and the suggestion that he’s rolled over is laughable. The Democratic Party is equally engaged in this strategy as earlier this week we learned that they are actively stalking Republicans, taking creepy videos of candidate’s homes, businesses, and often going for a 360 degree shot:
The truly crazy bit? This is apparently under the aegis of the Democrats themselves: “Democrats, on the other hand, insist the videos are fair game — and are unapologetic about the hardball tactics.” The videos are apparently being sponsored by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (at least, that’s how I’m interpreting DCCC spokesman Jesse Ferguson’s defiant defense of the practice); certainly there seems to be a common format, and it’s been done in multiple locations at this point. Which basically means that the DCCC is out and out stalking the Republican party.
When the President of the United States and his political party refuse to debate politics honestly, when they divide and separate us along racial, sexual, gender, economic and other lines, when they perpetuate debunked lies about Obama’s opponent, and when they engage in tactics that at best have a disturbing resemblance to the tactics of the Velvet Revolution, a fringe leftist organization run by a convicted domestic terrorist, what are we to think about the state of our liberty? And when you see the overwhelming media bias that protects and fights for him? How are we supposed to fight that?
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
I hope it doesn’t come to that.
P.S. Given Kimberlin’s tactics and the thin skin of the man in the White House, I’m certain that this blog post will be seen as harrassment and threats. I expect a lawsuit and a knock at the door from the Secret Service at any moment. /s
