Here’s an opinion piece by Chuck Green who writes “Greener Pastures” for the Denver Post Aurora Sentinel…one of the more liberal papers in the country. Additionally, Mr. Green is a lifelong Democrat…so this is rather a stunning piece…
Obama is victim of Bush’s failed promises!
Barack Obama is setting a record-setting number of records during his first term in office: Largest budget ever. Largest deficit ever. Largest number of broken promises ever. Most self-serving speeches ever. Largest number of agenda-setting failures ever. Fastest dive in popularity ever!
George Bush, who doesn’t have a vote in congress and who no longer occupies The White House, is to blame for it all.
He broke Obama’s promise, to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them.
He broke Obama’s promise, to have the congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN.
He broke Obama’s promise, to end earmarks.
He broke Obama’s promise, to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.
He broke Obama’s promise, to close the detention center at Guantanamo in the first year.
He broke Obama’s promise, to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high White House jobs.
He broke Obama’s promise, to end no-compete contracts with the government.
He broke Obama’s promise, to disclose the names of all attendees at closed White House meetings.
He broke Obama’s promise, for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters.
Yes, it’s all George Bush’s fault! President Obama is nothing more than a puppet in the never-ending failed Bush administration.
“You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground.
The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free corn.
“When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming.
When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence.
“They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side.
“The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again.
You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd. Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom.
They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn.
They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.”
“….that is exactly what he sees happening in America .
The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc.
While we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.”
With a bit of editorial rearrangement, *Martin Niemöller’s famous lecture is a chillingly accurate assessment of the Obama administration.
“(First) they came for the Jews (read Catholics), and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew (read Catholic).
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out —
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
(Then) they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out —
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak ….. ”
Everyone must vote this November to stop Obama’s and his assault on our Constitution, because whatever label you’re wearing, you’re next. Make no mistake about it, Obama is Hitler reincarnated!
*Martin Niemöller (1892-1984) was an ardent nationalist and prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last 7 years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.
