For Marco Rubio being right on Barack Obama was a Pyrrhic victory

By 17 Comments 2,180 views

Marco Rubio’s campaign seems to have crashed on the rocks because of his… shall we say somewhat repetitive use of the phrase “Obama knows what he’s doing”, but the truth is, he was 100% right. The reason that so many people scoff at the notion that Obama knows what he’s doing is because the very notion of an American leader who seeks to destroy that which he leads is anathema to most rational Americans. And the truth is, Barack Obama doesn’t seek to destroy the nation he leads, he seeks to “fundamentally transform” it. Splitting hairs you might say, but there is a big difference between the two.

For Barack Obama the American glass is half empty. Sure, there’s water in the glass, but only what’s left after two centuries of whites stealing from blacks, Indians, Hispanics, after men taking from women and the rich taking from the poor. As such, it’s his goal in life to fill that glass up by redistributing that which has been stolen back to its rightful owners. At his very core Barack Obama is a divider – by race, by income by nationality among others – he is an anti-capitalist, anti western populist with fascist tendencies and no love for Christianity.

It’s only with that understanding that Rubio’s assertion makes sense. The nation that Barack Obama leads is not the same one most Americans live in. They inhabit the same geography, but they are not the same nation. It’s like the movie The Martian. Anyone watching it will recognize that it’s a serious movie that has a bit of levity scattered throughout. But somehow it was nominated for “Best Motion Picture: Musical or Comedy” at the Golden Globes. Most people would recognize that regardless of the category the Globes’ voters put it in, The Martian is no comedy. Similarly, the United States most conservatives inhabit is an imperfect one, but one full of opportunity, fueled by freedom and largely a force for good. For Barack Obama those same 57 states represent a nation defined by racism, inequality and oppression.

That is the nation that Barack Obama thinks he is leading and the one which he is seeking to fundamentally transform. And it’s easy to see that Rubio is right… he knows exactly what he’s doing. From Obamacare to the kneecapping of Chrysler shareholders to the using the IRS to muzzle Tea Party groups, it makes sense in the nation Barack Obama leads. This has been going on for seven years and most of the examples never find their way into the news. Here are three that recently did.

  1. The Internet. The Internet may be the most egalitarian invention in the history of man. It has connected more people and given more opportunity to more people than any tool in all of human history. It was created by the United States and has been largely free from censorship and government controls since its inception. Barack Obama sees the Internet as a tool of American domination and therefore is moving to remove American control of it and give it to an international body that will leave the Internet’s freedom subject to veto and manipulation by such freedom loving nations as China, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.
  2. Economic freedom. American economic freedom is the engine that drove most of the world’s prosperity for a large part of the last century. The resilience and freedom of America’s markets and her entrepreneurs have led the world in almost every major economic development since 1900. American free enterprise has been the greatest driver of prosperity ever in human history, but under Barack Obama the United States has tumbled in economic freedom, to number 11 in the world (from number 6 when he took office.) And what causes such slippage? One thing: Regulation. Barack Obama sees America’s success as one of imperialism and outright theft, and he has used government regulation to stifle economic freedom at every turn, and the results have been devastating, resulting in the slowest economic recovery since the Great Depression.
  3. Government intimidation. Barack Obama is using the police power of government to achieve his ends. The Tea Party are not the only targets either. Barack Obama’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was recently outed for coercing Ally bank to agree to pay almost $1 billion in fines for racial discrimination, despite the fact that that internal documents stated they had no complaints nor any evidence of actual discrimination. Barack Obama sees America through race colored glasses and feels it’s his role to use the power of government to readjust settings. From the NLRB to the FCC to HUD, Barack Obama seeks to use the government to control more and more of Americans’ lives, winnowing down the spheres of freedom within which the outcomes can be decided by hard work and the choices people make.

At the end of the day, Barack Obama does indeed know exactly what he is doing. He is laser focused on one objective: Diminish America. Reduce her influence on the world stage and suffocate freedom and free markets at home. If you’ve been paying attention for the last seven you’ve seen him doing that and much more, and doing it very effectively. It’s simply not possible to rack up that level of success – as Obama defines it – without knowing exactly what you’re doing and being very good at it. Sadly for Marco Rubio, being right was a Pyrrhic victory.

The product of a military family, growing up in Naples, Italy and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and being stationed in Germany for two years while in the Army, Vince spent half of his first quarter century seeing the US from outside of its own borders. That perspective, along with a French wife and two decades as a struggling entrepreneur have only fueled an appreciation for freedom and the fundamental greatness of the gifts our forefathers left us.

    The “kneecapping” of Chrysler shareholders???
    J P Mogan took a bad hit on that one but somehow I don’t seem able to weep for them
    This POTUS has approval polls twice that as the last left with
    Maybe you have forgotten that 99 days after taking office just before his first initiatives were passed by congress the Dow had crashed to 6500 or that unemployment was 9.5%
    That was what Bush left him with
    The Dow is now at 16000 and unemployment is under 5%
    Oh yeah then there are those 2 invasion/occupations of Muslim countries , who could have seen those being problematical?

    You are absolutely correct. BHO does know what he is doing and it is purposeful. From the economy, to terrorism, religion, defense, race relations, growth of government, internal spying, health care, the Constitution, etc, etc, all of this is by design. After the immigration/amnesty flip flop I do not have total trust in Rubio, but I am glad that he is saying this because it is true. He should keep saying it. I have been telling everyone I know for the last 7 years that none of this crap is accidental. Some are starting to believe me.

    That Jesus guy didn’t actually have many quotes in the New Testament ( which was written years after his death)
    But one I do remember was something along the lines of: it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to gain heaven.
    Shouldn’t we try and help those unfortunately rich to get to heaven by taxing them heavily?

    @Nanny G:

    How nice, a Trump campaign ad, carefully edited to not show the subject being discussed in order to paint Rubio in a bad light. The subject being discussed here by Vince is Obama’s fundamental transformation of America and on that subject I think that Vince is correct that Obama knows what he is doing. When Rubio says Obama knows what he is doing in that regard he is in my opinion correct. BTW – I am not a Rubio fan, but when you are right you are right.

    Robert What?

    I don’t think people were turned off by Rubio’s observation. They were scared off by his inability to function under pressure. That’s not something you want to see in a President.

    @Nathan Blue: The win was expected—See where Trump’s “incredibly smart, best dealmaker” buddy Icahn lost over one billion dollars in last week on his oil trades? Trump is hot air..

    It doesn’t matter what anchor baby rubio says. The man was born to two Cuban citizens. He is not Constitutionally eligible and he knows it.

    The man doesn’t have American citizens as his priority either. He only cares about getting amnesty for illegals. Do your research on him, he is slimey. his parents are the same. They are currently being investigated for fraud and corruption. I also would like to know how they could go back and forth to Cuba during a time you could only get to Key West on a raft . Being a Miami native I keep up on things like this that hardly if ever make the news.

    @Richard Wheeler: Huh…when other wins are “expected” (i.e. Hillary, Obama, or a Rep. candidate no one thinks can win the election) there’s a bit more fanfare offered by the cultural elite.

    Besides, Obama’s been hot air for almost eight years. Trump really can’t do any worse.

    And yeah…he’s expected to win. Glad you understand that.

    @John: He who gets the most press coverage wins, thats why Trump is holding the Poll numbers.
    Rubio doesnt look presidential his baby face is killing him, Jeb embraced his name a little too late in this game perhaps, Kaishe qualified but boring, press pounding hard that Cruz wont compromise. Carson just doesn’t appear to have ability to lead in time of war he is sooo nice. The GOP donor audience last night was telling as to cheers and jeers.

    @kitt: This is a supposed Conservative site. My question is why would any Conservative vote for poseur Trump over Cruz..
    Are you Tumpists phony Conservatives?– I’ve been watching this character for over 40 years. Are you so easily duped? Or not really Conservatives?

    @Rich Wheeler: You know from my previous posts I back Cruz, I understand the Trump backers, he says things that most dont dare and much to the MSMs horror not only gets away with it but his numbers go up. I dont think a single person who posts here 100% agree with everything he says. Both Cruz and Trump backers are sick of what the old boy elite club shove at us to vote for. Santorum was robbed 4 years ago they shoved Romney in and too many sat home, we got 4 more painful years. I wont point fingers and call others not conservative or conservative enough, its the WhiteHouse or Bust!

    @kitt: You may not—–but Trump sure badmouths Cruz as he has just about every Repub including W– Kasich is next on his hit list
    One per cent Santorum? .Are you kidding?

  13. 17


    @Rich Wheeler: 4 years ago the GOP did a number on Santorum, not this election cycle.
    Trump will implode if he stays to current course he isn’t projecting an image that in the long-run voters wont just say, “Really Donald it isn’t you, its me.” (if you know what I mean)
