Obama and his minions have been doing their best to paint TEA Party protesters as racists or violent extremists - calling their ideas "dangerous." As if defending the Constitution and personal freedom is somehow a bad thing.
This morning in an interview with Matt Lauer, Obama continued this refrain with this little gem:
“There's a part of the Tea Party that actually did exist before I was elected … where there’s some folks who just weren’t sure whether I was born in the United States, whether I was a socialist."
Seeing how he has spent millions preventing one shred of evidence from being released to end the speculation on his natural born status (a Constitutional requirement for POTUS BTW), the questions do have merit. But I will leave that for another blog. The real issue is his political beliefs. Is he in fact a Socialist? And that is clearly the case.
Since he started his reign, we now have government ownership of auto manufacturers, student loans and now health care. Obama's administration has attempted to control payroll decisions of private financial companies and grown government at a pace heretofore never seen in this country. Of course he is a socialist.
He was the one that campaigned on a platform to "radically transform the country." We certainly aren't seeing the expansion of personal freedom during his time in office.
The reason the TEA party movement keeps growing is a reaction to the things he is doing. We do not want to see our country "radically transformed." We have the best health care system in the world and cherish our freedom. We believe the Constitution is the supreme law of the land and really don't like seeing that precious document treated like it is toilet paper by the left. If I wanted to live in Cuba, Venezuela or some other 3rd world nation run by a tyrannical despot, I would freakin' move there!
President Obama, you are a socialist. Stop the crying, and blaming George Bush for your failures. Be a man and admit that you truly believe government should run everything. It would be much easier to respect someone who stands up for something, instead of continually lying about their core beliefs.
