Dithering and caving
By Michael Oberndorf
June 4, 2011

How did it come about that Congress got so overloaded with Republicans who want to bend over backwards to accommodate a "president" who hates America, and tramples on the Constitution on a daily basis? It appears they are going to allow the debt ceiling to be raised with only minor cuts in spending, if that. This at a time when what is left of our economy is about to finish the collapse the Democrats have worked so hard to bring about. Our Republican "leadership" can't choose between dithering or caving. Oh, the tough choices! No wonder they pay themselves four times what the average American makes — plus expenses!

However, so as not to appear to be obsessed with the economy, they also have shown that they can dither and cave on foreign policy, too. It's truly pathetic when raging socialists like Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) and Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) are far ahead of Republicans in stopping the unconstitutional war that Obama-Soetoro has gotten us into in Libya. In a speech in support of Kucinich's bill mandating withdrawal of our troops in 15 days, Nadler accused Obama-Soetoro of acting like a king and a dictator. Boehner, in contrast, wants to play golf with him.

Eighty-seven Republicans voted for Kucinich's bill. The rest wimped-out. Many knowledgeable people are now saying that Obama-Soetoro's refusal to comply with the War Powers Act is an impeachable offense. Not among this group is the Republican "leadership" who are far too busy deciding whether to dither or cave on the issue.

Thus, it appears another golden opportunity to get the Marxist Usurper out of the White House is going to be lost. The Republican "leadership" is becoming truly expert in snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory. Over the past 20 years, and particularly in the last 10, they have given new meaning to the phrase, "With friends like these, who needs enemies?"

In spite of what the Ministry of Propaganda, aka, the mainstream media, would have us believe, we have never even begun a recovery from the recession. Every single thing that the Democrats and the Sock Puppet in the White House have done has ensured that the economy would get worse, with collapse being the desired end result. As I have pointed out before, the followers of Saul Alinsky, who include Obama-Soetoro, Hillary Clinton, and most of the appointees in the administration, believe that total destruction of our free, capitalist system is necessary to bring about their pure, communist utopia. That this is their goal is becoming clear, even to some in the Democrat Party.

The question, then, is what can be done to stop the destruction, before it all crashes down into an irreparable pile of smoking rubble?

The simple truth is that we need to foment a revolution within the Republican Party. Hacks like Boehner, who thinks it's just hunky-dory to go play golf with a lawless Marxist like Obama-Soetoro, need to be summarily removed from positions of power. Mitch McConnell in the Senate needs to be dumped, too.

We must actively encourage and support the genuine conservatives in Washington, in any way we can, to stand up and publicly and proudly buck the dithering cavers. We need to completely let go of the idea that to be elected to high office, a candidate needs to have spent years in other offices in a system that has become corrupt to the core. We need to encourage men like Representative Allen West (R-FL) to run, perhaps because of their lack of "experience," bringing uncorrupted honesty, intelligence, and fearless principle into the equation. On the other hand, we need to discourage men like Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) from running for president, for we have much greater need for him and his steadfast conservatism in the cesspool that we call The Senate.

The constant barrage of lies and propaganda that flows from the power elite, the self-declared Ruling Class, thrust upon the people by the Ministry of Propaganda on TV and in "newspapers," must be ignored. It is aimed at getting us to give up, believing that we cannot win. Cockypop!

We are not powerless. We can take back our country. We are the majority. And, we are right!
