High Marx for Mr. Obama

“We are just five days away from fundamentally transforming America!”
- President Barack Obama, October 31, 2008

--------------------------------------

In his recent tête-à-tête with Oprah Winfrey (the original BIG O), President Barack Obama awarded himself the grade of B+ for his performance after nearly a year in office. Naturally, those on the Right disagree and award Barry an F. Somewhat surprisingly, those to the Left are not much more generous in their assessment.

We submit, however, that would-be graders, both right and left, are applying the wrong standard in grading Mr. Obama. This is understandable. For 220 years, presidents of The United States have performed, more or less, according to a common motivation: to win re-election and their place in history by leaving the nation more prosperous, powerful, and peaceful than it was when they assumed office. Many have failed in this regard, of course, but this was due to incompetence. Certainly were Barack Obama performing according to this same motivation he should be given a grade of F. The country is far less prosperous, increasingly less powerful, and in danger of becoming much less peaceful at this point in his tenure.

But Barack Obama does not share the same motivations as his predecessors and he is not incompetent. He is a radical Marxist who understands well that in order to successfully transform a free market republic he must first facilitate the collapse of its existing socio-economic order. And by this standard, it is our contention, Barry is doing an outstanding job.

He has accelerated the debauchment of American currency; he has committed Her to irrecoverable debt; he has impaired Her free markets with myriad regulation; he has handicapped Her military with impossible rules of engagement; he has befuddled and demoralized Her intelligence gathering operations; he has made Her economy vastly more dependent upon federal whim; and he has signaled to the world that he will not defend Her interest so much as negotiate them away.

Why? Does Barack Obama hate America? No. He possesses, however, a radically different idea of what America is supposed to be. His is the Jeremiah Wright-Bill Ayers-Howard Zinn-Saul Alinsky-Richard Cloward-Frances Fox Piven vision of America: a nation that has grown too rich and too powerful and done so primarily through the exploitation of the disadvantaged and the extortion of the powerless. In the name of justice, therefore, such a polity must be made to pay restitution, to make amends, to be humbled by any means necessary, so that it cannot and will not abuse its fellow nations and citizens of the world ever again.

It is descriptive, not pejorative, to identify this mindset and worldview as Marxist, for indeed Marx’s fundamental assertion was that the so-called free market thrives only through the exploitation of the worker and is thus, at its core, evil. In his mind, therefore, Mr. Obama is doing what is right, just, and necessary in making a shambles of the American socio-economic order. And in this he is doing a right bang-up job! We refer you to the chart illustrated above from a liberal professor of economics at a major Midwestern University.

Americans must understand that this is not incompetence, it is a promise kept: the fundamental transformation of America, Phase One. The sooner the majority realizes this, the more vehemently they will – we continue to hope – actively reject it.

Cheers,

Charlie

Happy New Years!!!

I had mentioned your point myself after Obama graded himself, and I must agree, he is doing extremely well, with little effective opposition on any level.

I believe many Americans know what is going on, but they haven't a clue what to do about it, and there is no one to lead them out of it.

There are many grassroots efforts going on to alert Americans to what is going on and to try and stop the efforts of the far left. We are hounding Congress like crazy and we aren't going away. Some of it is working so far.

Obama has been successful at chipping away at what has set America apart for so many years. If in 2007 we were told that the government would control the banks, the auto industry, triple our national debt in only a couple months, be closing down Gitmo, about to take over healthcare, apologizing to terrorist and communist nations, court martialing our heroes, shafting Israel, we'd probably wouldn't have believed it...which is why Obama deserves an A for his efforts (to the detriment of America as we knew it).

Denise, I congratulate you for all your efforts and the efforts of Americans, but Obama is still getting away with, as the saying goes, murder, and not even the American courts or Congress are holding him accountable - there is just so much corruption in America. The truth always comes to light, not always in a human timely fashion, but the truth will emerge.
