What if we had an American president?
Sure, I’m a birther, because nobody has yet seen Barack Obama’s actual birth certificate. But this isn’t about the president’s place of birth or parentage. It’s about his Americanism.
So, what if we had an American president, raised from infancy through the formative years to recognize that our country’s virtues far outweigh its flaws? What if we had a president who was instructed during his adolescence and collegiate years about the genius and fortitude of our nation’s founders?
What if we had a president who revered the Constitution as a living document, not because he could stretch it to fit his wants, but because of its rigidity in the exaltation of freedom?

Barack Obama has no ability to run on a platform of “what I’ve accomplished during my tenure” as nearly every area that measures a successful administration has been met with incompetence, futility and abject failure. Yet his message of “Free” stuff seems to be carrying him to the promise land of four more years. I hope for our country’s sake I’m mistaken – for if I’m not, America as we have known her will now and forevermore be a thing of the past.

As a prelude to next week’s column on this passionately faithful pro-abortion president, I am revisiting a fervent petition that was made to Obama three days after he was inaugurated. In my article for the Human Life Review, I wrote about Luke Robinson, a black pastor confronting the first black president, who said at the 2009 March for Life in Washington, D.C.:
“Please, Mr. President, be that agent of change that can commute the sentence of over 1,400 African-American children and over 3,000 children from other ethnic groups sentenced to die every day in this country by abortion. … At the conclusion of your term in office, may it never be said that you presided over the largest slaughter of innocent children in the history of the country.”
Yet Obama increasingly supports and encourages the abortion-created corpses of innocent black children.

Remember those video scenes of the overweight Japanese warrior in a 15th-century robe solemnly walking up to a rather thick log sitting there with each end on a hip-high rock? After bowing to the shrine, the Japanese warrior, with one bare-handed karate chop, cut the log cleanly in half. You were glad the log was not you.
This time the log is you, and me, and all who want regime change in America. I suspect the Obama team is out to do to our end-of-campaign will exactly what that Japanese warrior did to that log. It’s only my suspicion, but I’m the world’s foremost authority on what I suspect!

The truth is that Obama has accomplished a great deal. That’s why he keeps insisting that his plan has “worked.” And he’s right because, in reality, everything works.
Communism works, if your purpose is to enslave people. Stealing works, if all you care about is money. Lying works, if you don’t care about your personal integrity. Literally anything, no matter how monstrously immoral, will work, depending on the outcome you’re after and how you define the term work. So the question should never be whether or not something works, but whether it accomplishes things we deem to be desirable.
That being the case, anyone who understands that the Duplicitous Despot’s objective from the outset has been to fundamentally transform the United States of America into a Third World Marxist country would have to admit that his strategy has worked very well. So Barack Obama means it when he says, with a straight face, that his plan has “worked.” But what he doesn’t say is that for most Americans it has worked only to the detriment of their freedom and financial well-being.

At age 51, Barack Obama is certainly too young to have been a 1960s student militant, but he was mentored by a coterie of bona fide revolutionaries, including communist organizer Frank Marshall Davis and Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers. Then, of course, there is Obama’s black separatist minister for 20 years, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who, by the way, gets a generous shout-out in the revisited Obama speech. After Wright’s animus toward the USA became common knowledge – for example, his notorious “God damn America” sermon – Obama famously cut official ties with Wright, but that just seems like window dressing. It all is.
A radical left message lives and beats at the heart of the Obama administration. It makes me wonder: Will these chickens ever come home to roost?

On Wednesday night, Mitt Romney stripped away the costume and exposed, naked beneath, a man more closely resembling Robert Downey Jr.
Recall the image, so often seen, of a young Robert, head downcast in shame, standing before the judge to rationalize why, yet again, he’d screwed up magnificently. Wednesday night was Barack’s turn.
Don’t get me wrong, I like Robert Downey Jr. – I’m glad he turned his life around. But he’s an actor. He reads his lines. He’s not Iron Man. And he’s not qualified to be president.
Neither is Barack Obama.

Obama didn’t just lose a debate. He demonstrated that he is incapable of running a small business, let alone the largest bureaucracy on planet earth.
And why are we just seeing this now?
Because, as has been pointed out over and over by many others, Obama was never vetted as a candidate, never screened for constitutional eligibility – and, as we now see – never challenged with any tough questions or criticisms of his policies over the last four years by the establishment press he may as well own.

Regardless of the outcome of the election – even if he loses – Obama will have 80 days from Nov. 6, 2012, to Jan. 19, 2013, to fulfill his treacherous promise to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is still an active KGB communist agent, to deliver America’s allies like Israel, Poland and the Czech Republic to Russia on a silver platter.
Let all Americans of good will work assiduously to save our country from socialism before Nov. 6, before Obama steals a second term. If he does, it will become like Putin’s Russia – America’s last “election.”
