Obama's appalling
victory speech

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 11/7/2012 11:28:36 AM

President Obama signaled a hard left agenda for his second term in the very first words of his victory speech in Chicago last night. It required only 31 words (23 if you omit 'thank-you's) for me to become doubly appalled with the speech, delivered to a cheering throng at one of McCormick Place's smaller rooms. Speaking in Obama Code, he indicated what he intends for the next 4 years.

Get used to it. We were warned...but the former 47% who are takers has grown to an electoral majority under 4 years of failed economic policies and increased gooberment handouts.

Like Chris Matthews, I've got a tingle. Except mine is in the pit of my stomach. Unlike Matthews, which signals rising engorgement, mine signals rising gorge.

Shortly, in hindsight, the most pessimistic among us today are going to look like manic optimists.

Adios, America.

230 years of blood, sweat, tears and sacrifice, and its come to this. I didn't think I'd live to see the day.

Maybe somewhere down the road the United States will have Her Nehemiah moment, but right now I doubt it.

Bottom line, more of the same but on steroids!

He will surely leave America in a shambles. Given the electorate's inability to understand the Real Obama, I fear the takers have finally taken over completely and pandering of the Left will become a way of life, not the exception. Patriots will die a slow long death and those who respect the Constitution will be a shrinking minority. Rest in Peace America, the grand experiment that made the world a better place is dying a slow painful death!

Revolution is the only alternative to what we see coming...it's only a matter of time before the takers push the makers too far.

I just called the white house and said I wanted to sign up to get an Obamaphone. The volunteer said he had never heard of Obamaphones and did not know of such a program. I told him he was paying for it every month in his wireless bill. Clueless. He is volunteering in the white house and had not seen the Obamaphone "lady" which had gone viral on the internet a couple of weeks ago. There is no hope for our country. None.

You all are missing the worst part.
Those were empty words that you heard from Zero.
He gives speeches just to hear the sound of his own voice.
His speeches mean nothing. He made many promises in 2009. He kept none of them.
The promises he made: they will not be kept. He does not keep faith. America just bought a used candidate, and helped push the candidate off the lot. He will not run. He cannot be started. He now is free to play golf, to play basketball, to go on endless junkets, to do whatever he wants. No news conferences. No cabinet meetings. No Presidential Daily Briefings. He has no further obligations to the Country. None.

He is protected by a dual layer: Joe Biden and Harry Reid. He cannot be removed from office. No one would risk Biden as President, and Reid would never allow a trial. Reid will not even allow the Senate to enact a budget!

The Great Depression is coming. Gas $12/gallon. Unemployment above 20%. No health care. No medicines. Regulations governing everything. We are headed for a Union of Socialist States.
Bread lines. Riots. It is going to get ugly.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

America´s school children have had enough and they´re not going to take it anymore. Faced with the meager, unappetizing school lunches required under First Lady Michelle Obama´s nutritional program, students have taken to social media to express their outrage and disgust at what they´re forced to eat for lunch. (snip) More than a million kids nationwide have opted out of the new program - a testament to how truly awful the food being served at our schools has become. Not only that, in the Los Angles school district. it´s been reported that $100,000 worth of food is thrown away every day:

Let’s get one thing straight: the savage mob attack on a white motorist in Detroit by a dozen or more black men on Wednesday was not a “vigilante style” attack. Yet that’s what Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and City Council President Brenda Jones are trying to call it in a joint statement meant to play down the unavoidable racial element. Says their statement: Earlier this week, a traffic accident that injured a young boy, David Harris, escalated into a vicious attack on the driver of the vehicle, Steve Utash, who had done the right thing by stopping to check on the boy.

So blares a poster on exhibit at the taxpayer-funded University of Michigan. So far, I have been able to find no protests from the ACLU or other groups that decry religious expression at venues that belong to governmental authorities.

“Your father’s coming to see you,” Ann Dunham told her ten-year-old son Barack Obama, Jr. before a month-long Obama Sr. Christmas visit in 1971, as narrated in Dreams from My Father. Obama Sr.´s Hawaii visit, reportedly part of a "recuperation" after a "bad car accident" in Kenya, included "drives" around "the island," "short walks past" "the remodeled hospital where [Barack Jr.] had been born," and "a talk" to Barack Jr.´s fifth-grade class about "wild animals" that "roamed the plains" of Kenya. And, most importantly, Obama Sr.´s Hawaii visit gave credence that Obama Sr. was, in fact, Barack Jr.´s father. But was

Battleground Polls and Conservative Strength

The latest Battleground Poll, compared with prior Battleground Polls, shows the percentage of Americans who describe themselves as “conservative” dropping. The percentage is lower than almost any Battleground Poll in the last fifteen years. The percentage of Americans who call themselves “liberal,” by contrast, is at an all-time high. Modification in the demographics of the poll sample may have something to do with the change. Women form 53% of the sample, while women are 50.6% of the population. Blacks are 13% of the Battleground sample, a smidgen more that the black percentage of the population. As I noted a few years

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,

Little Rock — An elderly couple was attacked at a restaurant when they asked a woman to refrain from cursing while talking on a cell phone, according to police. The incident happened at Cuisine of China on Geyer Springs road. In the police report, Don Francis, 74 and his wife Bettye Francis, 69, say they were attacked by Joecelyn Thornton, 33, after Francis asked her to stop cursing. In the surveillance video, a woman can be seen walking over to a table and pushing Francis. His wife intervenes and that´s when Thornton allegedly attacks her, pushing her into a table and punching
