Last Monday, when President Obama was attending the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, he was caught on a “hot mic,” telling Russian President Dmitry Medvedev … “This is my last election. After my election, I’ll have more flexibility,” according to an excellent article by Raven Clabough, appearing in the March 27, 2012 edition of The New American.
“I understand,” Medvedev responded. “I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”
Expectedly, this caused a [mostly Conservative] media storm, resulting in President Obama publicly chiding reporters for their coverage of the incident.
“And frankly, the current environment is not conducive to those kinds of thoughtful consultations. I think the stories you guys have been writing over the last 24 hours is probably pretty good evidence of that. I think we’ll do better in 2013,” said Obama.
According to Fox News, “President Obama owes a lot of his political problems to having run for office on vague promises of hope and change. After offering Americans a chance at something completely different, Obama has delivered large doses of the same old stuff.”
At that time, President Obama’s narcissistic words and posture just seemed like Obama being Obama, even though it was with the man who will be replaced by Vladimir Putin, who will be taking the office for the second time around, as a result of elections whose integrity has been widely criticized.
However, after today, and while President Obama continues to occupy the Oval Office, my view is far more cautious, and for good reason.
Today he sounded too much like Al Capone, when he publicly “threatened” the [Conservative] Justices of the United States Supreme Court, basically “warning” them not to overturn Obamacare; worse yet, he made the comments during a joint press conference with Mexican President Felipe Calderon and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, according to a FOXNews article today.
The president, adopting what he described as the language of conservatives who fret about judicial activism, questioned how an “unelected group of people” could overturn a law approved by Congress.
“I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”
“I’m confident that this will be upheld because it should be upheld,” Obama said, describing the law as “constitutional.”
Now, President Barack Obama is behaving more like a third world dictator, such as Hugo Chavez, who will not tolerate any dissent, is looking to “nationalize” uncooperative private industries, all while using the government treasury increase the number of government program beneficiaries–so they will obediently continue to “vote” for him.
This thought is increasingly supported by Barack Obama’s attitude, tactics and words, which have led the entire Democrat party and the mainstream media to become increasingly divisive, desperate to create any distraction from his factually failed record during this election year.
First up, they invented class warfare via Occupy Wall Street miscreants.
Second, they have Eric Holder sue states over border control and voter ID laws to garner Hispanic votes, while Fast and Furious guns kill tens of thousands of them.
Third, they invented the “Republican War on Women,” to increase the female vote for him.
And finally, Obama’s invocation of Trayvon Martin as his “son,” to ignite racial tensions within the black community–an emotional “get out the vote” motivator for the people he has harmed the most during his presidency.
Does Barack Obama’s dictatorial ‘divide and conquer’ political style make him the best choice for leading America into the 21st century?
I don’t either.
