Obama’s mistaken sense of direction

03 Aug

Yesterday Obama was on the stump campaigning in Atlanta. He went on about how the Republicans haven’t proposed any new ideas. At one point in his speech he abandoned the teleprompter to deliver his lame comedy routine about the car going into the ditch and now that he and his liberal congress have managed to get back on the pavement, this is no time to turn the “keys” back to the Republicans. I happened to be listening to this on the radio as Obama clumsily delivered  his monologue, in my minds eye, I pictured him not behind the Presidential Seal on the podium but in front of the red brick wall at the improv on open mic night. Anyway, the jokester in chief went on to add that when you want to go forward you put the transmission in D and when you want to go backward you put it in R (at this point the drones roar with laughter). Well the efforts put forth to get out of the ditch were so contrary to the principles of our Republic that the car is indeed facing in the wrong direction.

Obama, you’re going the wrong way!

Calvin Coolidge, in a speech on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of our Declaration of Independence warned of us the true direction of progressive ideology;  “If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction can not lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers”.

    The Dems seem to think they can drive by looking in the rear view mirror. No wonder they can’t see what is plainly in front of their noses…economic hardship, rising social tensions, counterproductive foreign policies…all as result of their leftist policies.

    We need to take away their car keys…and will in November.
