President Obama has shown he is absolutely unconcerned that the American public is firmly opposed to his calamitous Law of the Land that is destroying our health care system and harming millions of innocent people, many of whom foolishly trusted him.
In the face of his cratering approval ratings, he grows ever more defiant, as if he's almost ready to publicly unmask himself as the person who is as contemptuous of America as discerning observers have long known him to be.
From the moment he uttered his disingenuous apology about the website rollout disaster, he has been speechifying nonstop about the glories of his law, which he says "is working" and whose website problems he claims are under control.
He doesn't want to hear a peep out of you selfish malcontents who are losing your plans and doctors despite his promises that you could keep them. He doesn't want to hear from you self-absorbed "young invincibles" who have been reluctant to take the plunge into supporting your sick elders against your will. When he said your coverage would be cheaper, he wasn't talking about you, you narcissistic jerks, who ought to be ashamed of your privileged health status. He was talking about other unspecified people to whom he will redistribute your resources in the spirit of leftist compassion.
For those of you who are experiencing firsthand the nightmares of this law and its ability to burrow right inside your pocketbook, you are to disregard your intellect and your senses and recognize that the welfare of those individual anecdotal props he has on the stage with him is more important than yours -- and you are going to like it. This is Barack's America, after all.
More importantly, he doesn't want to hear lip from Republican congressmen, whom he assigned to the back seat of the car during his first term. You're really going to make him mad if you keep talking about repealing his legislative "baby." Didn't you hear him? "We're not going back" -- no matter how many people he hurts and how unpopular his law is. Did I mention that this is his Amerika?
He and his minions have been lying about the alleged fixes to the website and claiming that it's well on its way to working smoothly, which is demonstrably false, in every respect, and this is all going to come out sooner or later. He hopes later, obviously, because the longer this law remains in effect before it is repealed the more its tentacles will have stretched into every sector of our health care system, leaving untold damage in their wake.
But just in case some of you are not complying with his directives, he had to launch another campaign of distraction -- a continuation of his crusade against the American capitalist system, which, come to think of it, is on a par with the free market-wrecking, budget-busting Obamacare.
He resumed his war on capitalism in a speech on the economy earlier this week, in which he outdid even himself in expressing his disdain for free enterprise. He railed against America's "inequalities" of income, which he implied are a result of selfish entrepreneurism and greed. He didn't mention, of course, that during his term in office, this gap has grown much worse, despite his socialistic and redistributive policies. But as usual, he acts as though he's been an outsider with no influence in Washington -- and he presumes the same people who haplessly re-elected him will still believe him.
Obama implies that America was founded on the principle of equal economic outcomes and not equal opportunity. He wants to raise the minimum wage to move toward more equality, apparently not content that he's increased food stamp distribution and other welfare transfer payments to an all-time high.
He made clear in his speech that to him, the national debt pales in comparison with disparities in income among Americans. I wish you all would have believed us when we warned you he doesn't care about the debt.
What Obama doesn't tell us is that his war on capitalism and his obsessive quest for economic redistribution cannot help but further stagnate the economy and result in far fewer people, including those he pretends to champion, prospering.
His policy agenda is destroying economic growth and jobs, is ballooning the national debt and is shattering the hopes and dreams of millions of Americans every day. It is abundantly obvious that he doesn't care a whit about this. What he aims to do is to complete his fundamental transformation of America, which, if you haven't realized yet, means ruining what has made it unique, impoverishing it and bankrupting it. Based on all the damage he has done and his singular refusal to own up to it or change course to correct it, it's no longer reasonable to deny that this infliction of damage is intentional -- or at least that he's perfectly comfortable with it as long as it is in service to his cause of fundamental transformation.
More and more Americans are catching on to his schemes, so take note, Republicans, and cut him no quarter from this point on. It's time to take America back.
