Forget our Failures-Blame Bush Bush made me do it!

The simple truth is Democrats have been in control of the House and Senate since 2006, the year the economy began to unravel and the beginning of Democrats tripling the national debt. They have also controlled the White House since the 2008 election. Despite these facts, the Democrat leadership insists on blaming former president Bush for every wrong turn made by team Obama. Flip Wilsons, Geraldine “the devil made me do it” is alive and well. Unemployment at 10%, the failed trillion dollar give-away, the tripling of the national debt, failed border security, the recent oil spill, the continuing war in Iraq, the expansion of the war in Afghanistan, the keeping of Guantanamo open, no immigration reform, sagging numbers in the continuing recession and Obama points the finger at Bush. It helps to remember, Obama would vote “present” during his forgettable moments in the 2006-2008 Senate thus allowing him to be on both sides of any issue. Obama takes responsibility for nothing. This tactic paid off in the Senate and presidential campaign but it has catastrophic consequences for our country.
In today’s America, we have a Democrat led Senate and House of Representatives who have abdicated congressional oversight and instead work hand in hand with the White House to invalidate the will of the people. Fifty-eight percent of American voters now feel disenfranchised by dismissal. Our California Senate representatives Boxer and Feinstein have emancipated themselves from voters and wheel and deal their own terms. Boxer consistently votes and sides with the will of the majority, ruling Democrat party, not the people. She rules with absurd arrogance and entitlement. The three branches of power are becoming one, with the Supreme Court teetering on the verge of becoming the final ascent, the Obama Parnassus, the final conquest of a constitutionally imposed troika. To the victor goes absolute governance.
Despite the fact both congressional houses and the white house have been controlled by one party in the past, a separation of power was always discernible. The safety valve put there by our founding fathers is being disabled with the assistance of the messiah impacted congressional majority.
Barack Obama does not hide his agenda. He has plainly stated his intent many times. Most recently speaking before all his admiring minions he said,” You and I did not build this movement to win one election. We did not come together to pass one single piece of legislation. We are fighting for nothing less than a NEW FOUNDATION for our country, and that work is not complete”. July10, 2010.
The problem in this assault on our constitution and American values is not Obama, it is us. We as Americans do not take ego centric leaders at their word, we insist on suffering the consequences through tasting the pudding. There is still an amazing 47% willing to abdicate American values and actually ponder the feasibility of corrupting America with a revised version of the policies found within the Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez playbook. Denied but in place is the Democrats new model of domestic imperialism where government appointed czars control everything from education, health, manufacturing, banking, mortgages and information. The media which used to be the watch dog on the side of the people is now 95% mesmerized, in the control of this administration.
A president who chooses to see the Constitution as a tool to usurp the powers of the people instead of as a tool to insure the powers of the people places all of our freedoms in danger. Individual government victories against citizens or states will slowly enchain all of us, even the 47% oblivious to facts. This administration has convinced half of the nation, “We the people in power” is the opening statement for our constitution. In truth it reads as follows: “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” Only we the people can preserve our freedoms, this November election may very well be the most important election in your lifetime; remember who is for you and who is against you. Pay close attention on who is an administration pawn then vote as if your FREEDOM is at stake; because it is!.
