They See his Corruption and Path to Destruction
The elite Democrats with deep pockets who put their money where their mouth is and vigorously supported Obama’s campaign and presidency are now rejecting him. Their eyes are wide open and they see that Obama’s policies and the path he has set for our country, is leading to destruction.
Ordinary Americans saw it early on. They’ve been protesting against Obama’s out-of-control spending, bailouts, “reform” bills that actually destroy our way of life, and the nationalization of U.S. corporations and entire industries. They were ridiculed and marginalized, but the tide is turning.
High-profile supporters of Obama reject his brand of Progressive destruction and the ranks of ordinary Americans who care about our country and freedom is increasing.
Barbra Streisand, James Brolin, Mort Zuckerman and others are speaking out. Ed Morrissey reported at Hot Air on the recent event attended by high-profile Democrats who spoke out against Obama’s agenda of destruction.
“Zuckerman added that he detects in the Obama White House “hostility to the very kinds of [business] culture that have made this the great country that it is and was. I think we have to find some way of dealing with that, or else we will do great damage to this country with a public policy that could ruin everything.”
Ferguson added: “The critical point is if your policy says you’re going to run a trillion-dollar deficit for the rest of time, you’re riding for a fall… Then it really is goodbye.” A dashing Brit, Ferguson added: “Can I say that, having grown up in a declining empire, I do not recommend it. It’s just not a lot of fun actually — decline.”
Ferguson called for what he called “radical” measures. “I can’t emphasize strongly enough the need for radical fiscal reform to restore the incentives for work and remove the incentives for idleness.” He praised “really radical reform of the sort that, for example, Paul Ryan [the ranking Republican on the House Budget Committee] has outlined in his wonderful ‘Roadmap’ for radical, root-and-branch reform not only of the tax system, but of the entitlement system” and “unleash entrepreneurial innovation.” Otherwise, Ferguson warned: “Do you want to be a kind of implicit part of the European Union? I’d advise you against it.”
This was greeted by hearty applause from a crowd that included Barbra Streisand and her husband James Brolin. “Depressing, but fantastic,” Streisand told me afterward, rendering her verdict on the session. “So exciting. Wonderful!”
Mort Zuckerman, billionaire publisher and real estate developer, points out that Obama has done everything wrong. He discusses how Obama’s healthcare plan is a fiscal disaster for our country, and how Obama did change politics-as-usual by making it WORSE. Zuckerman describes Obama’s outrageous spending as a “debt binge.” (In the 18 months since Obama took office, he has spent more than ALL presidents in the entire history of our nation combined.)
Zuckerman published an article in the Daily Beast, titled “He’s Done Everything Wrong.”
In his article he states, “He has not rallied public opinion. He has plunged in the polls more than any other political figure since we’ve been using polls.” He also says, “I’m very disappointed. We endorsed him. I voted for him. I supported him publicly and privately.” He describes Obama’s political corruption as “REVOLTING.”
With regard to how other countries view Obama, he states, “Let me tell you what a major leader said to me recently. “We are convinced,” he said, “that he is not strong enough to confront his enemy. We are concerned,” he said, “that he is not strong to support his friends.” The political leadership of the world is very, very dismayed.”
Voter intimidation is in the news today because Eric Holder, appointed by Obama as the U.S. Attorney General, dismissed the rock-solid case against the New Black Panthers who intimidated voters at a Philadelphia polling place. Now more Democrats are speaking out about Obama’s corruption during our last election.
All indications from Democrat voters who are paying attention is that their eyes are now wide open. If you’re a Democrat voter, are your eyes now wide open?
