Barack H. Obama may very well love America (that’s definitely debatable), but he is a decidedly bad American. The measure of that is his adherence to American principles and those are easy to find. They are laid out in the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. This statement was written by blogger Common Sense.
The Tea Party has been in the news and the op-ed pages lately. Our local newspaper reprinted several national op-eds on the topic of ‘hostage-taking’ attributed to the Tea Party ideologues in Congress. Most of those contend that the knot of right-wing ideologues in the GOP were willing to ‘cut the baby in half’ or ‘drive this nation over the cliff’ in order to maintain their ideological position. New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd titled her piece, “The “Invasion of the Alien Tea Party.” Cute title, damning indictment. Hey, how about that 512 drop in the DOW yesterday! Any connection to the ‘Fiddling while Rome burned’ or just a coincidence?
Back to Common Sense- he also made the statement, If we do lose our country it will be to the people who are ideologically on the left…. Their excesses have awakened many of those who were sitting on the sidelines.
Finally, one more so that we can get the ‘feel’ of the thinking of this example of right-wing ideology: Yesterday he questioned blog author, UptheFlag, What does “uptheflag” mean – you another America hater?
There you go. Let’s see, is there anything else? Oh yes, when I asked Common Sense on another blog [he has banned me from his] how much blame for the awful economy and debt belongs to GW Bush he replied, Drop the jingoistic “Bush lied, kids died” approach to your political life and learn something for a change.
Well, that about sums it up.
What did you all learn?
