Last Monday was a profound evening; Dr. Charles Krauthammer spoke to the
Center for the American Experiment. He is a brilliant intellectual, seasoned
& articulate. He is forthright and careful in his analysis, and never
resorts to emotions or personal insults. He is NOT a fear monger or an extremist
in his comments and views. He is a fiscal conservative, and has received a
Pulitzer Prize for writing. He is a frequent contributor to Fox News and writes
weekly for the Washington Post. The entire room was held spellbound during his
talk. I have summarized his comments, as we are living in uncharted waters
economically and internationally. Even 2 Dems at my table agreed with everything
he said!If you feel like forwarding
this to those who are open minded and have not drunk the Kool-Aid, feel free....
Summary of his comments:
1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual, charming individual. He is not to be
underestimated. He is a cool customer who doesn't show his emotions. It's very
hard to know what's behind the mask. The taking down of the Clinton dynasty was
an amazing accomplishment. The Clintons still do not understand what hit them.
Obama was in the perfect place at the perfect time.
2. Obama has political skills comparable to Reagan and Clinton. He has a
way of making you think he's on your side, agreeing with your position, while
doing the opposite. Pay no attention to what he SAYS; rather, watch what he
3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to Washington to
make something out of himself, but rather to change everything, including
dismantling capitalism. He can't be straightforward on his ambitions, as the
public would not go along. He has a heavy hand, and wants to level the playing
field with income redistribution and punishment to the achievers of society. He
would like to model the USA to Great Britain or Canada.
4. His three main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, and
NATIONAL HEALTHCARE by the Federal government. He doesn't care about the auto or
financial services industries, but got them as an early bonus. The cap and trade
will add costs to everything and stifle growth. Paying for FREE college
education is his goal. Most scary is his healthcare program, because if you make
it FREE and add 46,000,000 people to a Medicare-type single-payer system, the
costs will go through the roof. The only way to control costs is with massive
RATIONING of services, like in Canada. God forbid!
5. He has surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. No one
around him has ever even run a candy store. But they are going to try and run
the auto, financial, banking and other industries. This obviously can't work in
the long run. Obama is not a socialist; rather he's a far-left secular
progressive bent on nothing short of revolution. He ran as a moderate, but will
govern from the hard left. Again, watch what he does, not what he says.
6. Obama doesn't really see himself as President of the United States, but
more as a ruler over the world.. He sees himself above it all, trying to
orchestrate & coordinate various countries and their agendas. He sees moral
equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in Germany and England was a prime
example of how he sees America, as an imperialist nation that has been arrogant,
rather than a great noble nation that has at times made errors. This is the
first President ever who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!
7. He is now handing out goodies. He hopes that the bill (and pain) will
not come due until after he is reelected in 2012. He would like to blame all
problems on Bush from the past, and hopefully his successor in the future. He
has a huge ego, and Dr. Krauthammer believes he is a narcissist.
8. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong.
Republicans are pining for another Reagan, but there will never be another like
him. Krauthammer believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty & Bobby Jindahl (except
for his terrible speech in February) are the future of the party. Newt Gingrich
is brilliant, but has baggage. Sarah Palin is sincere and intelligent, but needs
to really be seriously boning up on facts and info if she is to be a serious
candidate in the future... We need to return to the party of lower taxes,
smaller government, personal responsibility, strong national defense, and
9. The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. We are
spending trillions that we don't have. This could lead to hyperinflation,
depression or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into prosperity. The
media is giving Obama, Reid and Pelosi a pass because they love their agenda.
But eventually the bill will come due and people will realize the huge bailouts
didn't work, nor will the stimulus package. These were trillion-dollar payoffs
to Obama's allies, unions and the Congress to placate the left, so he can get
support for #4 above.
10. The election was over in mid-September when Lehman brothers failed,
fear and panic swept in, we had an unpopular President, and the war was grinding
on indefinitely without a clear outcome. The people are in pain, and the mantra
of change caused people to act emotionally. Any Dem would have won this
election; it was surprising it was as close as it was.
11. In 2012, if the unemployment rate is over 10%, Republicans will be
swept back into power. If it's under 8%, the Dems continue to roll. If it's
between 8-10%, it will be a dogfight. It will all be about the economy. I hope
this gets you really thinking about what's happening in Washington and Congress.
There is a left-wing revolution going on, according to Krauthammer, and he
encourages us to keep the faith and join the loyal resistance. The work will be
hard, but we're right on most issues and can reclaim our country, before it's
far too late.
Do yourself a long term favor; send this to all who will listen to an
intelligent assessment of the big picture. All our futures and children's
futures depend on our good understanding of what is really going on in DC, and
our action pursuant to that understanding!! It really IS up to each of us to
take individual action!! Start with educating your friends and neighbors!!!
Barack Obama officially kicked off the 2010 campaign season with a speech
to "his" people on Monday. Yes, it's true that since taking office,
Obama has never really stopped campaigning, but this speech was specifically
geared toward building "his" coalition to stop "those"
people from regaining power in the November elections.
Outside of the overall left wing philosophy of bigger government, more
centralized power, higher taxes, and less individual freedom, the way
Democrats go about building a campaign has always frustrated me.
"Constituency" politics is so fake, yet so many Americans fall for
it. Now, Obama isn't even trying to hide the strategy. As long as
"his" people vote, that's all that matters.
As noted in an AP
story on GOPUSA, "Since Obama won the White House, voters of all
political stripes have soured on the president and his party; his job
performance rate hovers around 50 percent and support for Democrats in
Congress is even lower. The growth of government and spending increases have
turned off some independent voters. Parts of the Democratic base are
frustrated with the pace at which the president has made change. And some
Republicans who crossed over to vote for Obama now are disillusioned."
That's putting it mildly! Many Americans are stunned that a radical
leftwing socialist actually came into power and started forcing radical
socialism down Americans' throats.
So, in an attempt to rally "his" people, Obama sent out a web
video which, as always, does not unite, but rather divides.
Give me a break! First, his assessment of the political situation is
completely wrong. Obama and the Democrats passed health insurance legislation
despite that fact that a majority of Americans opposed it. If he considers
that "historic" then that should give Americans a clue as to his
true agenda. Obama and the Democrats passed bill after bill that plunge
America deeper into debt so that "their" people get a hand out while
"those" people have to pay.
Second, we have Obama's politics of "us" against
"them." Now, Republican leaders always talk about the need to
"reach out" and attract different voters, but for me, I have ALWAYS
found it refreshing that the conservative philosophy is the one that is truly
As a conservative, I could give a speech to any group at any time in any
place, and not have to change a word of it. My speech and my beliefs are not
geared toward women or men or Latinos or whites or young or old. My
conservative principles apply to all Americans. By putting those beliefs into
practice the entire country benefits. We should not seek to attract one group
by saying one thing and another group by saying something else.
When Obama talks about the "health insurance companies, the Wall
Street banks, and the special interests who have ruled Washington for too
long," apparently he forgets that these companies are not run by robots.
They are run by people. They employee thousands of other Americans. You
know... REAL jobs that are driven by the market and not the social engineering
of the Democrats. I guess Obama also forgets about the leftwing special
interests that continue to rule Washington.
Obama is selling a product that is so anti-American and yet he was able to
move himself all the way into the presidency. He's now facing incredible
backlash because the American people actually want to maintain the American
way of life. This is not Europe... this is America! And now that he and the
Democrats are fighting for their lives, perhaps the American people can see
them for what they are. In their desperation, they are continuing the same old
political strategies, but this time the American people are catching on.
If Obama wants to campaign only to "his" people, then I'll gladly
be one of "those" other people... the ones who care about America
and care about building a country where people can succeed because government
stays out of the way and doesn't take their hard-earned money simply to feed
the ever-growing government monster. Are you one of "those" people?
