Obama, Failing American Families

Below are two of Mitt Romney’s latest ads, mostly broadcast in swing states. There is no doubt about the battle ahead: Mitt Romney, principles, integrity and freedom vs Barack Obama, the mainstream media, Labor Unions, lies (say and do whatever it takes to retain power), dependency and debt. The lines are drawn and America will have a clear choice. Even so, Obama and his cronies will conform their message with guile and duplicity to try and purchase our society. The agendas are clear, and so must be the message. Obama will shade his message to appeal to all with a “flaxen cord” approach trying to reel us in before binding us in untenable chains of debt and subordination. Romney will deliver a message of reason, rationale and hope for restoring what made America great and exceptional; a strong and free economy; a strong and free America that defends freedom around the world. Romney will also have to call Obama out for his lies and those of the media. The cause is freedom and it is worth the fight!

The messaging of these two ads are indicative of some of what we will see in the future. You have to ask the question, how do you feel when viewing the ads?

Further, the upcoming debates will have a profound affect on the hearts and minds of American’s. Our prayers should be with Governor and Mrs. Romney, and Paul Ryan and their advisors, that they might be endowed with discernment in knowing how to communicate their messages of light and truth that will resonate with American’s and the world, and further how to expose the lies and deceit of those who seek to flatter America to its demise.

Obama’s America Does Not Comport With My America!

***Please note that the opinions herein reflect those of the author alone, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Mitt Romney Central.***

The evidence continues to mount and it is overwhelming! When taken in aggregate, Obama’s agenda for America is calculating and clear - to disable and dismantle America by debt, dependency and deception, one step at a time. Obama’s America does not comport to my America!

Let’s look at some of his actions in the past three years, each of which are illustrated or discussed below. Please note that this list is not complete, for if it were we would not have sufficient space for other posts. Notwithstanding, any one point herein is enough to validate an agenda of destruction. Barack Obama and those that have surrounded him are as duplicitous, disingenuous and un-American as you can be; with each hiding behind the veil of generosity and flattery and granting largesse from the public treasury in an attempted purchase of our American society (see video below). On the surface their actions may seem benign while behind the scenes their scheming to dismantle our freedoms and liberty is terribly malignant. In times past I thought Obama’s minions were just deceived by his flattery, position and power, but their actions are so revealing and overt in advancing Obama’s ideological agenda, which ideology is firmly entrenched in socialist and communistic principles, that they must be one in purpose. (Dirty Harry’s recent rant, as noted by Vic Lundquist, is simply a reflection of the disingenuous character of Obama’s campaign.)

If there is any doubt about Obama, we can study his brief and ‘hidden’ history, his writings and his associations, and therein know his ideology. His actions don’t belie his ideological heritage. In fact, his actions embrace his ideology. By removing the blinders, we clearly see who Obama really is by virtue of his associations, including but not limited to his mentoring from his friend Frank Davis (an avowed advocate and member of the Communist Party); his past membership in Chicago’s New Party (a Socialist Society); his affiliations and friendship with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright whose anti-American rhetoric is as fomenting as the clerics in the radical jihadist movement; his association and friendship with Bill Ayers, a convicted anti-American terrorist; his adoption of the teachings of Saul Alinsky (the father of community activist thuggery); and his associations with other unsavory characters. As individuals we tend to align ourselves and associate with those that are most like us in principles and ideals. Each of those noted above exposes Obama for who he is and reveals the foundations of his character. So is Obama! Why should we doubt? The actions are reflective of the man (see below).

Immigration - The Right Solution vs Broken Barack’s Imperious Edict & Political Ploy!

Recently noted in a great article by Clark Judge, Managing Director, White House Writers Group, Inc.; Chairman, Pacific Research Institute, at HughHewitt.com -
”Let us never forget,” wrote Joseph Story, one of our history’s most revered Supreme Court justices, “that our constitutions of government are solemn instruments… not to be frittered away to please the demagogues of the day…. They are of no man’s private interpretation. They are ordained by the will of the people; and can be changed only by the sovereign command of the people.”

It is a dangerous trait we see here: a taste for arbitrary power in a president of the United States.

The matter of immigration in the United States is the domain of Congress, our Legislative Branch of the US Government. Constitutionally, we have empowered Congress with certain rights, duties and responsibilities; immigration laws, as with other lawmaking, policy making and related actions fall thereunder. Similarly, we have entrusted and empowered the US Supreme Court to assure that our legislative acts, laws and treaties, as well as the actions of the Executive Branch are compliant with the US Constitution. To quote Clark Judge again, “It is a dangerous trait we see here: a taste for arbitrary power in a president of the United States.”

What does Barack Obama think?


“Its a remarkable document…but I think it is an imperfect document…and reflects some deep flaws…” “It has a blindspot”

By his imperious actions, not just this past week with immigration, but in previous periods and on innumerable counts, Barack Obama has sought to obviate the Constitutional process and system instituted by our Founding Fathers. It is disconcerting beyond measure when the President of the United States acts without regard to the founding principles of our Nation; and this a Constitutional Law professor from Chicago??? What duplicity!

Charles Krauthamer offers further commentary here:

Fortunately, Mitt Romney has the reasoned capacity to understand and further respects the Constitutionally grounded foundations of our Nation. He also has the presence of mind not to fall prey to Broken Barack’s political ploys and taunts, wherein he sought to lure Governor Romney away from what matters (the economy) and into a discussion on immigration. Obama intentionally co-opted positions that were similar to pending actions of Congress - it isn’t the position he took but the manner and basis for his taking. And yet, the MSM blasted Mitt for a tepid response. Mitt Romney knows who bears responsibility for immigration and is committed to work within the system; he is committed to LEAD, something Barack Obama has failed to do. In fact, Broken Barack’s edicts are simply a ‘fool’s errand’ and derivative of failed leadership.

Notice Mitt Romney’s response below to Bob Schieffer:

ROMNEY: This is something Congress has been working on, and I thought we were about to see some proposals brought forward by Senator Marco Rubio* and by Democrat senators, but the president jumped in and said I’m going to take this action . . . He was president for the last three and a half years and did nothing on immigration. Two years he had a Democrat House and Senate, did nothing of a permanent or long-term basis. What I would do, is I’d make sure that by coming into office, I would work with Congress to put in place a long-term solution for the children of those that have come here illegally. . . .

SCHIEFFER: But would you repeal this? . . .

ROMNEY: My anticipation is I’d come into office and say we need to get this done, on a long-term basis, not this kind of stop-gap measure. What the president did, he should have worked on this years ago, if he felt seriously about this he should have taken action when he had a Democrat House and Senate, but he didn’t. He saves these sort of things until four and a half months before the general election.

*See Senator Marco Rubio’s commentary on the matter in National Review Online, here.

Obama is treading on very dangerous turf, and to what end? His political fortunes weigh in the balance and he is above all things, POLITICAL. Even Pat Caddell, a Democratic strategist of renown status stated on Hannity the other night that, “Obama would do anything to get re-elected.” Frightening and dangerous.

The irony of it all is in the response of Felipe Calderon, President of Mexico. This, a country that imprisons illegal aliens coming across their borders.

Fortunately for America we have a man of character and integrity seeking to displace Obama. Mitt Romney understands the checks and balances of the Constitution. In spite of the contrary press, he stands resolute in what is right. I know that Mitt Romney has a defined agenda for the immigration challenges we face as a Nation. They are not myopically centered in ‘illegal’ immigration - but on IMMIGRATION. It demands a comprehensive long term solution, and he is meant to work within the Nation’s Constitutional framework to lead on this issue. Under President Romney we will see the needed changes in this regard. We will see an enforcement of our laws, we will see a secure border, and we will fix what is broken in our legal immigration processes, and consequentially see a waning of illegal immigrants. I look forward to the day when we retain the mindshare of our legal immigrants that are educated in our higher learning institutions; I look forward to the day when we see those with talent, resource and creative will coming more easily into our country to stimulate growth and economy; I look forward to the day when we attract the brightest and best in the world and they find a home in our Nation, and contribute to the fabric of our societies; I look forward to the empowerment of our economy and our people, and restore the rule of law that seems to have been abandoned by President Obama; I look forward to the day that we call my friend, PRESIDENT ROMNEY!

Obama Unplugged and Revealed (Updated)

Remember, Remember! This has been a weekend of tender remembrance and reflection on the precious treasure spilt in defending our freedoms and liberties. To each who has given the ultimate sacrifice, even their very lives, in preserving and defending our freedoms; to their families and to each of the willing who has served or is serving, words are wholly inadequate. Even so, THANK YOU!

Given the sacrifices born for our freedom, we not only need to be appreciative and grateful, but responsible and accountable to the price paid for freedom. Therefore, as we consider the choices before us in the current Presidential election, may we further consider certain constants or truths that may be applicable in our pondering, and hopefully help shape our decision in the course forward? Some constants that have come to mind this weekend, to consider in our choice:

“Flattery and cunning words are the tools most often used to gain power, advantage, influence and control.”
“What you do speaks so loud; I cannot hear what you say.”
“By their fruits ye shall know them.”

In November, America faces a ‘defining moment’, an inflection point where we are making a choice, not just for an economic turnaround, but a choice for our very freedoms and liberty. We are choosing a leader who will either, guide our nation with experience and integrity, and abide an agenda that preserves our exceptionalism and freedom, or a ‘leader’ who, with flattery and guile, subtly advocates an ideology that seeks to destroy the very fabric of our Nation’s foundation – our freedom, liberty and exceptionalism.

Disappointed as I was with the outcome of the elections in 2008, I deemed Barack Obama a good man, but one unprepared and untested to lead. After all, with little experience, how much damage could he really do? Was I ever wrong! Look how far we are off course because of his incompetence, or his duplicity, or both?

It reminds of the boiling frog where the water temperature subtly rises without warning until it is too late. The frog enjoys the warmth with mediocrity unknowing what is about to befall him in his ultimate demise. Wake up America!

Let’s take a look at Barack Obama unplugged and revealed –

Referencing the worst President in history for business, in the American Spectator, Gary Shapiro addresses a list of 50 things (could be more) Obama has done in the past three years to undermine our economic fabric, HERE.

The Republican National Committee further provides a brief glimpse at Obama gone wild when it comes to the discipline, or lack thereof, of managing our economy below – willful intent, duplicity, incompetence? You choose!

As telling and revealing as these things are, consider “The Obama Constants” and applications below. In each instance, there is more that could be said.

Flattery: President Obama seems to heap flattery upon selected American societies hopeful that they will be blinded by his praise and turn a contrary course against another. The President’s unstated objective of waging class warfare for preserving his position as POTUS is offensive at best.
(Definition - a compliment or speech; excessive, insincere praise. Synonyms - sycophancy, toadying, fawning, pandering. Constant - Flattery and cunning words are the tools most often used to gain power, advantage, influence and control.)

Duplicity/Guile: President Obama has stated that his Presidency would be the most transparent of any in American history – it has been anything but transparent. Whether in the advocacy of Obamacare, or management of foreign policy, Obama has stated one thing and done the opposite. His social mandate on the Catholic Church contrary to their tenets while proffering otherwise; his statement to Medvedev on a ‘hot’ microphone and the subsequent cover-up; his appointment of czars to get around the Constitutional checks and balances of Congress; in each case, Obama has pursued a secret agenda contrary to transparency.
(Definition – insidious cunning in attaining a goal; crafty or artful deception; duplicity; deceitfulness in speech or conduct, as by speaking or acting in two different ways to different people concerning the same matter; double-dealing. Synonyms – deceit, deception, dissimulation, fraud, hypocrisy, trickery. Constants - What you do speaks so loud; I cannot hear what you say. By their fruits ye shall know them.)

Hypocrisy: President and Mrs. Obama advocate for provident and responsible living for all Americans while they choose to live lavishly on the backs of the American people – citing the 16+ vacations costing taxpayers millions, and millions of dollars. It seems that the Obama’s find comfort in a “let them eat cake” mindset. Further, President Obama amazingly stated that sometimes he even forgets that Americans are suffering a recession; really? (see previous post here). President Obama’s attacks on American enterprise and private equity are unequaled and duplicitous at best; and yet, he has no qualms about ‘public equity’ wherein he invests America’s dollars into his ‘crony capital’ equity projects, i.e., Solyndra, Fisker and others - to what end? If given a choice of who I would trust with America’s dollars, it is Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney’s return on capital investment to his investors far surpasses anything President Obama could hope for, thankfully. President Obama’s failure to understand economics is irresponsible - he fails to understand simple economics, that in wealth creation, jobs are created - they are inextricably linked.
(Definition – a pretense of having a virtuous character, moral or religious beliefs or principles, etc., that one does not really possess. 2. a pretense of having some desirable or publicly approved attitude. Synonym – deceit. Constants - What you do speaks so loud; I cannot hear what you say. By their fruits ye shall know them.)

Indecisive: Throughout Barack Obama’s term as President he has and continues to vacillate on important decisions, even being pressed by his advisors on certain key decisions like pursuing Osama Bin Laden and others. Obama’s vacillation on the Arab Spring and other critical foreign policy matters has undermined America’s leadership position in the world; why else have we seen a diminishing of respect for America? Our President has not held constant to our core principles and values, and has undermined us by apology and subordination. When leadership and decisiveness were needed most critically at the beginning of his term, in dealing with our economy and domestic policy, he deferred to Congress (Pelosi and Reid) while opting for his ‘apology tour’. His lack of resolve on our deficit and spending has left us without, economically; his failure to be decisive is an unbridled failure of leadership and exposes his inexperience and incapacity to serve as POTUS. Never has one been so ill-prepared.
(Definition – characterized by indecision, as persons; irresolute; undecided. Synonyms – vacillating, hesitant, wavering. Constants - What you do speaks so loud; I cannot hear what you say. By their fruits ye shall know them.)

Most importantly - see the comparative illustrated below.

Thanks to Vic Lundquist for the link - this epitomizes the character comparative of pride vs humility/meekness. Like unto George Bush, Mitt Romney reflects humility.

Pride: With Obama, it is all about Obama! It doesn’t matter that the Navy SEALs took out Bin Laden, it was Obama who took credit. Is there anything he doesn’t take credit for, besides the economy which isn’t about him - it is Bush’s fault. Pride is a terrible disease and one of, if not the most destructive character traits an individual can aspire to, and is always preceded with the letter ‘I’. There is no letter ‘I’ in ‘we’. Contrarily, Mitt Romney, who has every basis for pride through his accomplishments, always defers to others and their successes.
(Definition - a high or inordinate opinion of one’s own dignity, importance, merit, or superiority, whether as cherished in the mind or as displayed in bearing, conduct, etc. the state or feeling of being proud. Synonyms - Pride, conceit, self-esteem, egotism, vanity, vainglory imply an unduly favorable idea of one’s own appearance, advantages, achievements, etc., and often apply to offensive characteristics. Pride is a lofty and often arrogant assumption of superiority in some respect: Pride must have a fall. Conceit implies an exaggerated estimate of one’s own abilities or attainments, together with pride: blinded by conceit. Self-esteem may imply an estimate of oneself that is higher than that held by others: a ridiculous self-esteem. Egotism implies an excessive preoccupation with oneself or with one’s own concerns, usually but not always accompanied by pride or conceit: His egotism blinded him to others’ difficulties. Vanity implies self-admiration and an excessive desire to be admired by others: His vanity was easily flattered. Vainglory, somewhat literary, implies an inordinate and therefore empty or unjustified pride: puffed up by vainglory. boast. Constants - What you do speaks so loud; I cannot hear what you say. By their fruits ye shall know them.)

A further comparative with Governor Romney will follow in a subsequent post, wherein we can compare with the same constants noted above.
