Barack Obama decided to stop by the C-SPAN station to tell the world what we already knew. “We are out of money”. He forgot to mention that he and his dream of making the Washington of today look more like St. Petersburg of 1917 is the overwhelming reason why.. More on that particular topic a little later on..
C-Span’s Steve Scully decided to ask the logical questions of Obama that very few others have had the decency to ask.
Primer for understanding liberalism: Starting with a question about the “no men allowed” seat on the Supreme Court, Obama said, “I thought empathy wasn’t important and I continue to believe that..” Nearly 600 pandering puffy words later, he finally shut down. Scully then said, “And that’s what empathy is?” Obama then began sputtering again and finished up with, “..it’s very important..” Words have no meaning to the liberals. They try to use as many of them as possible in order to dodge and deflect. Their goal is to keep you on a lexical Lazy Susan..
Example number two: Obama wants a Justice “who has a sense of how American society works and how the American people live..” Is he looking for a “Supreme Sociologist”? Where does the “law” fit into this Oprah Winfrey style of jurisprudence? As pointed out by Scully nearly 600 words later, this sounds to be a textbook definition of “empathy”. Obama not twelve words later says, “..I thought empathy wasn’t important and I continue to believe that.”
“One of the things I would prefer not see happen is that these confirmation hearings drag on and somebody has to hit the ground running.. without the time to wrap their mind around the fact that they are going to be a Supreme Court justice.. so they can get prepared.” Liberal irrationality doesn’t like the “acrimonious” image of someone questioning the liberal bias of a liberal candidate who is asking for a job for LIFE. (Any liberal with a job let alone one for life, is confusing enough..) Obama himself “understood” that Alito and Roberts took about seventy days to withstand the liberal “dragging on” that was once acceptable. If a nominee can’t “wrap their mind around the fact that they are going to be a Supreme Court justice in seventy days”, then they shouldn’t be considered for the job..
Suddenly, our Justice needs to “get prepared”. When the loyal opposition as well as the outraged citizens of this nation wanted to “prepare” relative to the Obama multiple trillion dollar socialist soiree, “getting prepared” was cast as being “acrimonious”. Unlike our President, this Justice will (hopefully) have “experience” as a judge so their only “preparation” will involve a quick brushing up on the Communist Manifesto or the Democratic Party Platform, whichever is handier.
Where will he be going with this pick? It seems silly to ask.. According to Obama, Justice Scalia is just a “terrific writer..” Yet uber-liberally biased and agenda driven marionettes like “Brennan and Marshall really focused on the broader sweep of history.. (who) broke the political logjam that had locked out too many people in the political process..” Never mind that that “logjam” was put in place and exacerbated by Democratic beavers.. The people locking “too many people out in the political process” were the Democrats who didn’t really give up on the idea, they just altered their game plan and their tactics a bit..
Obama idolizes two of the most destructive liberal deconstruction-ists as his template for a Supreme Court justice. The good news is that they will have to look long and hard to find another Justice as sufficiently basted in liberalism as Ginsburg. The bad news is that they won’t stop looking until they do..
Soon thereafter, Obama again referred to what it was that he either does or doesn’t believe in when it comes to Supreme Court Justices, “..compassion and empathy for ordinary Americans so that everybody is heard..” The “everybody is heard” element is what is particularly fascinating. The new liberalism involves taking the majority and portraying them as “an extremist minority” while simultaneously taking one “proper thinking” liberal and casting them as “the will of the overwhelming majority..” Just be sure to use as your marinate, a Bolshevik with a black robe and a gavel and suddenly “everybody is heard..”
The final question relative to this topic was “would you have any interest in being on the Supreme Court?” Probably the only honest answer that he has given in the last year then appeared, “I am not sure that I could get through Senate confirmation..” I am not sure as to why he believes this, he managed to duck and dodge all of these typical “Democrat’s discrepancies” while hoodwinking the electorate in 2008..
Then it was onto his “health care hysteria”. Obama believes that we are “operating at a competitive disadvantage with other countries..” I suppose that he can explain the latest “medical breakthroughs” coming from Togo or possibly Trinidad and Tobago.. The socialized medicine that he is forwarding is all about putting us at a “competitive disadvantage”..
“..The single biggest component driving down (down?) our deficits and long term debt is getting control of Medicare and Medicaid costs..” Were this nonsense to actually be true, why did he send so much real and imaginary money to the banks, the insurance conglomerates and the automakers? Does he have any idea what is actually driving UP our deficits? Doesn’t he understand that HE is “driving” the “deficit express” right into the embankment?
All we need to cure this “problem” is “everybody comes at it with a spirit not of ideological rigidity..” Once old Barack becomes a “flaccid fascist” we can consider his progressive perspective to be anything other than “ideological rigidity”.. “We are going to manage how treatments are provided more effectively..” Note the word “manage”. “Manage” means demand. It also means, “ration”. That sentence sounds like the shortest description of socialized medicine that I’ve ever heard. “We are going to initiate things like electronic medical records..” “Initiate”, same as “manage”..
“Every provider, every small community hospital has these things in place and that’s part of the role that the government can play..” This “role” with their “electronic” records systems, sounds like the “government” will be “overseeing” the process.. Maybe if the Obama caliphate read the Constitution, the “role of government” might be a little clearer to them. By the way, there is nothing in the Constitution about the government “providing, demanding, managing or initiating” a socialized medicine pogrom.
Then came the big one from Scully. “..$1.7 trillion debt, a national deficit of $11 trillion, at what point do we run out of money?” Obama’s answer, “We are out of money now..” He followed up with, “..we are operating in deep deficits, (his word, “operating”, my word: drowning) not caused by any decisions we’ve made on health care so far..” Please note: “..so far..” This is called foreshadowing.
The problem again is “health care inflation” according to the confused communist. He then stumbles into “investments.. even if they don’t reduce them (costs) this year or next, but ten years from now or twenty years from now we end up saving two trillion dollars..” Over twenty years that breaks down to two billion dollars a year even if the possibility existed that the “big spender” would consider slowing down his personal trillion dollar a month habit..
Continuing with the comic relief we were again told that if we “preserve our values and uphold our ideals” we will be safer.. I wish that he would explain how OUR “values and ideals” influence the Muslim terrorists? We had better be prepared to defend “our values and ideals” with ballistic missiles as opposed to awaiting our “report card” from the ticking turban crowd..
Yes, our little President has his totalitarian toolbox in hand (with his journeyman union card as well, I might add..) and he can’t wait to tinker with the Supreme Court, his special “health care hysteria” and our “interrogation techniques”.. That is, after he has done such a bang-up job with the banks and mortgage companies and the automakers. He says we are “broke”, broke in more ways than one. If I may play off of the old saying, “If it’s broke, will someone else PLEASE fix it?”
