We knew President Reagan, Mr. Reagan was our President. Mr. Obama you’re no President Reagan!There is a reason that president Barry Hussein Soetoro invokes the name Ronald Wilson Reagan so often. President Reagan above all else was a statesman. Reagan loved America and put America and American ideas first. In president Soetoro’s own words, Reagan was a “transformative figure” in modern politics. Reagan was able to speak to our nation that was on the brink of economic decline and lead it back to a path of economic recovery.
That is what president Soetoro wishes to do. He wants to speak to the nation like Reagan but instead of leading us back to a path of economic recovery, he wishes to use the image of Reagan to lead us away from the things of American greatness. Where Reagan would lead toward American independence and exceptionalism Obama’s job speech on Thursday night will lead America to an unprecedented and uncharted utopian place where neither he nor his socialists icons have ever been, a successful big government socialist state.
Uncannily all the while that president Soetoro is tempting America to leave behind it’s traditions he will attempt and mimic Reaganesque sounding phrasings to mask his true intentions. Yet, as so many times before Soetoro’s own deep rooted partisanship will not allow him to slip the surly bonds of his radical left-wing gamesmanship in order to touch the face of American statesmanship. So this speech will inevitably come off in his usual ham-handed pontificating style of rhetorical condescension, sidestepping his own personal responsibility and blame the other guy.
It is all clear now that president Soetoro wishes to project the veneer of Reagan like qualities while practicing the rabid far left-wing partisanship that we have come to expect from him. President Soetoro places his Political ideology and his Political Party first and above all else. We have seen it repeatedly over the 2 ½ years of his presidency. This Thursday’s jobs speech will be no different because the president and his Party believe that they are smarter than the American people are. They also believe that we are too stupid to know this.
The president asked for a bicameral appearance before Congress for a Kodak moment. It is as everything that this president does a Polaroid picture, all for show.
It is a not so subtle re-election speech. Just as the never before seen little blue placards he used to stand behind, which announced that he was the president-elect, this jobs speech before Congress is the stuff of partisan stagecraft.
It is meant for him to be surrounded with all of the trappings of presidency. What that will do is subliminality suggest to your mind that he is the president of the United States of America while he undermines both that office and the Legislative Branch in one felled swoop. He will be clubbing his congressional enemies with partisan shots intermingled with jobs-speak as he where clubbing little white beached baby seals using the club of highfaluting rhetorical finger pointing while his Congressional acolytes jump up and down in rapturous applause at each blood-drenched clubbing.
President Soetoro has gotten particularly proficient in this type of political clubbing since he beat the Supreme Court roundly about the head with his disdain for their ruling on campaign financing in the 2009 State of the Union address. The Supreme Court looked like hapless black robed walruses that had been set upon in a surprise attack before they could inch worm themselves back into the protective waters of the Supreme Court chambers.
I’m looking forward to the many ways that one can say we need to raise taxes and we need more unsustainable borrowing and spending without using those exact words, raise taxes and spend. I’m expecting that the president will use the usual code words “new revenues” for raising taxes and the code word “investments” for more unsustainable borrowing from the Chinese and big government spending.
However since the president had a whole vacation and days before this speech to prepare I’m sure a man as smart as he will be able to come up with words so awesome that they will be able to completely masks the facts that America is still out of money and we are still running in deep deficits. Deeper now trillions of dollars deeper, "downgrade" deeper under president Soetoro. I wonder if he will even mention the Obama downgrade?
In fact we were out of money and running in deep deficits from the first day that Soetoro assumed the presidency, that's what he said, but that didn’t stop him and his Democrat Party from exacerbating an already tenuous economic crisis with trillions of dollars of new debt, which caused an S&P economic downgrade. One would think that the president and his Party was attempting not to let a serious crisis go to waste in order to put into place their radical social economic agenda, or some such foolishness like that.
But such an act would be placing Partisanship above the good faith and credit of the United States of America. Such an act would amount to Party politics rather than Statesmanship. Hasn't the president been lecturing Republicans on placing America above Party politics to create jobs lately? Isn't that going to be a main focus of his jobs speech? The laying aside of partisan politics to create jobs?
Ironically if the president had heeded his own advice 2 1/2 years ago and had he laid aside his own partisan politics and instead worked with Republicans instead of reviling them we would not have had the financial downgrade we've experienced experts say.
We would have been in a much better fiscal situation with deficits cut in half as some financial economists suggest. Me thinks the president is engaging in a bit of intellectually dishonest and the deceptive politics of do as I say but don't do as I do, don't you? He'll certainly be doing that on Thursday night.
Ronald Wilson Reagan policies proved that he was concerned about all of America. He was not just thinking about special interest groups. He was not just thinking about the strategies of winning elections. Barry Hussein Soetoro policies on the other hand prove that Soetoro is and always will be a political ideologue that is fundamentally concerned with gaining and keeping political control and power.
President Soetoro is no Reagan he doesn’t want to be. Soetoro simply wishes to employ Reagan like techniques to fundamentally change American into something that left-wing socialists can, for the first time in their lives, be proud of. Soetoro would just as soon use Saul Alinsky’s tactics or Adolph Hitler’s tactics if he thought those would get him what he wants in America.
But you respect Reagan so he used Reagan to get you to buy his hope and change propaganda. It’s all political manipulation of the highest kind. How the majority of the American people do not realize this is very disconcerting.
Perhaps the recent earthquake in Washington D.C. that left cracks in the Washington monument were the founding fathers and all previous dead presidents combined rolling over in their graves because America is not what it once was, what it could be under this current president. The spirit of America has been offended I think. I can feel it.
Like president Soetoro said in his speech near the Victory Column in Tiergarten Park, Berlin, Germany in 2008 he said, “I know that I don’t look like the other Americans who’ve previously spoken in this great city.”
That is true but only superficially so. What is more important is that then Senator Soetoro didn’t respect America like those other Americans he referred to, what was more important is that he didn't plan to govern like those other Americans he referred to and what is more important is that he didn’t and doesn’t have the same interests for America as those other Americans.
Ronald Reagan did all he could to uphold the American idea. He didn't attempt to fundamental change it. Mr. Soetoro you are no Ronald Reagan.
