This morning the first news I heard was that Martha Johnson, head of the government’s General Services Administration, was resigning because an internal government investigator had unearthed that she had spent too much money at the 2010 Las Vegas convention for 300 agency workers.
A couple of things here. First, the timing of this isn’t accidental. Anyone who believes that this resignation isn’t designed to get a head start against the criticism now being levied at the White House, I argue, also believes Obama should be president. Next, it is important to know how the political games are played, and just how nimble the White House can be when it comes to controlling the news and getting out in front of damaging news.
If the White House weren’t feeling heat, or perhaps more accurately anticipating blow back on Michelle’s spending, we wouldn’t be hearing about Johnson. Which brings me to my point. How in heaven’s name can the White House use Martha Johnson, as a show of Obama’s commitment to be fiscally responsible, when his wife is spending like a drunken brothel worker, given an all expenses paid trip to Rodeo Drive?
Obama is pushing his so-called Buffett Rule, a grand canard that will do absolutely nothing to impact the national debt, which Dan Bubalo has pointed out in detail on this very page. (http://mychal-massie.com/premium/were-off-to-see-the-wizard/) If Obama were concerned about spending and the so-called rich, his wife wouldn’t have spent $50,000 in one trip to an exclusive erotic lingerie shop in New York.
The truth is that Obama cannot control his spitefully arrogant wife. She is using their children as a cover for her ongoing not so secret affair and her lavish spending. And there’s nothing Obama can do about it, even if he were inclined to. But, you can bet that there are those of his staff who are watching this, and doing the math on how vulnerable it makes him. It makes him extremely vulnerable – if we make it so.
The Republican Party is awol in this battle. Boehner, Cantor, McCain, Hatch, O’Connell, Reince Priebus, Karl Rove, et al, are more interested in getting Mitt Romney the Republican nomination, than they are in taking out Obama. It is hard to imagine a more profound collective of “this is how you sabotage a race” than the Republicans are exhibiting. Romney is running to win the nomination, not to win the election.
We are in perilous times, and Obama is vulnerable, but the Republican Party is not doing a thing to help us take him down. No wonder he feels so emboldened. So we must take the fight to Obama ourselves. We must make him blink, and I assure you we can. His narcissism is such that he feels compelled to lash out like a petulant child whenever he doesn’t get his way or whenever we stand up to him. That is his achilles’ heel and we must exploit it. His record is indefensible, but talk show dialogue won’t defeat him. We need the tenacity of the Swift Boaters to take him down.
Everything the White House does every week, from now until the election, has been choreographed, polled, and taken before their focus groups. They are like race cars sitting in the paddock waiting to be revved up and pulled onto the course. But Obama is still beatable and it is because, despite the fraudulent polls, I believe most people do not like or trust him and even more people are outraged at the arrogant indifference of his wife and nothing dissuades me of same.
Combine this dislike with his abysmal record and we have the formula for defeating him. Right now he is full of confidence – he knows that a corpse has more of a chance to defeat him than Romney does. But if we push him he will blow in public and/or use his office to do something so untoward that people will be appalled beyond his repair.
It is important for us to remember that it was “We the People,” in the form of the Swift Boaters, who won the election for George W. Bush against John Kerry. It was “We the People,” in the form of the Tea Party, who were responsible for the greatest political triumph in modern times. We have the power to make a difference and we must exercise it.
Obama is a disciple of Saul Alinksy, who was himself an avowed communist. His mentor and advisor was and is Bill Ayers, the domestic terrorist and avowed communist. Obama has aligned himself with the most notorious radical anarchists in American history, and he has learned their ways well. Everything about him is controlled by blind political ideology. His every political move is right out of Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals.”
The media is not going to expose the truth for us, nor will they report the truth about him. Consider how the media treated the lies about Herman Cain, while they ignore the allegations Larry Sinclair made against Obama. Remember the way the media dredged for every speck of dust they could find about the National Guard record of George Bush. Recall how they would not accept the truth – but there are highly respected experts investigating Obama’s birth record and are willing to put their reputations on the line to argue his birth record is a fraud. Still the media ignores it.
We must lock arms and fight to take down Obama ourselves, and as I say that I warn everyone, that the Republican Party is not going to be our friend. We fight a dual battle. The battle to take out Obama and the battle to reclaim the Republican Party. The question that remains to be answered is are we up to the task?
