Not alone, of course.
Yesterday’s Drudge headline describes Barack Obama as being in a “panic” over the upcoming election with its catastrophic potential for Democrats.
The link goes to a video at RCP. In it Obama says:
“They’re fighting back. The empire is striking back. To win this election, they are plowing tens of millions of dollars into front groups. They are running misleading negative ads all across the country.”
But that’s not what caught my ears.
“They don’t have the courage, they don’t have the gumption to stand up and disclose their identity.”
Then the money line:
“It could be insurance companies, banks…”
Now let’s remember for a second that Barack Obama took $280 million for his Presidential from unidentified donors (this proves to me that nearly all Democrat voters have zero long term memory and Obama and Democrat leaders depend on their early-onset Alzheimer’s).
But with those words Obama identifies two more of the “enemies” of the state- insurance companies and banks. Obama sees more enemies inside the United States than outside the United States. Obama is channeling Joe McCarthy. Everyone who opposes him has become anti-American- a “threat to democracy.”
The “Threat to Democracy” has become the new Democrat meme.
Barack Obama has said that the Chamber of Commerce is a threat to democracy.
“This is a threat to our democracy…And if we just stand by and allow the special interests to silence anybody who’s got the guts to stand up to them, our country’s going to be a very different place.”
That’s what the President just said about the Chamber of Commerce, a right-wing group spending $75 million to beat Democrats this fall, and reportedly taking money from foreign corporations — some even owned by foreign governments.
David Plouffe says that those who support Republicans are a “threat to democracy.”
“They are becoming the central financial actors in the 2010 election,” Plouffe told reporters in Washington yesterday. “What’s happening out there is really a hijacking of our democracy.”
Karl Rove is a threat to democracy.
Richard Trumka, the President of the AFL-CIO, also got into the act:
And golly, even Rupert Murdoch is a threat to democracy.
Arguably the most frightening of all, Obama says information is a threat to our democracy.
While knowledge is power, the information age could be too much of a good thing. That’s the message some heard in President Obama’s weekend commencement speech in which he bemoaned
Speaking at Hampton University in Virginia, the president raised alarms when he said “information becomes a distraction, a diversion” that is putting “pressure on our country and on our democracy.”
The man who has a website dedicated to his own glory, the man who spams nearly everyone in the country on a daily basis, thinks information is a bad thing?
I think not. What Obama is saying is that information coming from sources other than
God Obama is a bad thing and a threat to our democracy.
Stalin felt the same way.
We are all threats to Obama’s democracy.
And let us all remember something else. This country is fundamentally a Democratic Republic and it was none other than Barack Obama who promised us he would “fundamentally transform” it into something else.
Were Democrats to maintain control of the Congress, one could just see it- hearing after hearing, with Chairman Henry Waxman banging the gavel.
“Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Tea Party?”
Mr Obama, have you no decency, sir?
