Barack Obama and the Chamber of Secrets

Who will the Democrats demonize next?

So, who's left to demonize? The Girl Scouts? Rotary Clubs maybe?

We're running out of devils to distract us. Then again, the Obama administration's preposterous attack on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce does nothing to help Democrats and everything to reinforce the moderate voter's perception that the president's party has gone bonkers.

A recent ad by Democrats makes the charge—dutifully echoed through the blogosphere and by talking heads—that the chamber was part of a cabal out to "steal our democracy," accepting foreign cash and then using the funds to campaign against candidates on the left. Though, admittedly, they have no proof of any wrongdoing, Democrats have threatened that investigations will soon uncover this reprehensible criminal activity.

Inquiry to come postelection, no doubt.

"Stealing democracy," as you may know, loosely translated, means: Holy crap, Republicans are going to win an election.

You'll also notice that the insidious sway of outside political money always seems to blossom into a critical threat to the future of democracy about the time misguided conservatives start to get the upper hand on Democrats.    

Yes, some critics are throwing a more nuanced accusation at the Chamber of Commerce. They assert that all money is fungible and thus it is irrelevant how the funding is separated within the organization. At the end of the day, foreign money helps the political arm of the chamber.

This argument holds a lot of credence. Money is fungible. So it will be interesting to hear how Democrats defend their support of government funding for, say, Planned Parenthood, which, one could point out, is also using fungible government dollars to regularly fund abortions. I believe that's illegal, as well.

But let's face it; no one is really buying the argument. Though, a perceptive voter might ask himself this: If the United States Chamber of Commerce—composed of some of the most moderate, milquetoast, government-friendly saps in the country—is now on the enemies list, who exactly does the president think is reasonable? If the crony capitalists aren't good enough for Barack Obama, who is?

Without these helpful attacks and the ensuing kerfuffle, most voters would never have known about the chamber's political activities. Now they may question why the Chamber of Commerce, which supports an array of left-of-center policies—tax hikes, health care "reforms," bailouts, etc.—is so interested in seeing Democratic candidates beaten in November. Why would the chamber want to replace these statesmen with nihilistic Republicans who promise to reject all federal bailouts?

And how many average American voters believe that the Chamber of Commerce reflects, in general, the positions of most mainstream businesses? Things, they may assume, must be worse than we thought.

Time magazine's Mark Halperin—not exactly Glenn Beck—recently wrote that the general perception by most Washington insiders is that "the White House is in over its head, isolated, insular, arrogant and clueless about how to get along with or persuade members of Congress, the media, the business community or working-class voters."

Many of us have always thought the administration insular and arrogant, but never clueless. But, you have to ask yourself, why would Democrats run a campaign that reminds everyone that their opponents aren't exclusively tea party radicals and demon-Bush acolytes, but moderate groups of small and large businesses?

Politically speaking, election time is when you retrofit your positions. This stunt only proves this administration can't even feign moderation in the face of defeat.

    The voters Democrats are trying to attract doesn't give a shit about the Chamber's ad spending. This is definitely a political blunder, showing that the administration is even maladroit at national politics, their one supposed strength.

  • ||

    You're supposed to kowtow to your radical base during the primaries and run to center during the general election campaign. Does the White House really think that they are only alienating the implacable GOP with this rhetoric?

    I will still not vote for a Republican next month, even if the polls show a 49/49 split with 2% undecided. It's third party or leave it blank. I encourage everybody I talk politics with to do likewise.

    Come January, Barack Obama may well be a de facto lame duck president.

  • ||

    J,

    That was my plan as well, but the Dems keep sending me literature about how "extreme" the GOP'er is. Their "can you believe he could even think this, much less say it" examples are stuff that would all earn big kudos here. As big a douche as the Republican is (and, Lord, is he), his opponents are talking me into him.

    "maladroit"? I think you mean fucked up.

    I note that Our Dear Leader likes to pretend he's boxing, as shown in that pic. I've seen at least one or two other pics where he's doing the same thing - pretending as if he's sparring with someone.

  • Gilbert Martin||

    "pretending as if he's sparring with someone."

    Obama couldn't fight his way out of wet paper bag with a 105 Howitzer.

  • Greer||

    Well, the press release I read was that he had never boxed before but knocked out Mayweather in the first round. After he played golf with all those holes in one.

    Nothing is annoying like a giant pussy pretending he knows how to fight. How many times do you think Obama's been punched in the face, anyway?

  • Mike||

    Why do you insult me?

  • kc||

    When Obama referred to the Citizen United ruling during the SOTU, saying it would allow foreign money to influence US elections, it was a overstretch then, but he continues to bleat the same tired song. The Dems are just pissed about that ruling and can't get over it.

  • ||

    While, of course, it is OK we use our money to influence elections in other countries. Just sayin'

  • Michelle||

    Bleat??? Bleat??? is that a reference to sheep fucking again?

  • ||

    Because we all know that corporations NEVER donated money to political causes before Citizens United.

  • Spoonman.||

    It really would be nice if the Republicans were better. I'm vaguely hoping they'll win this election just to impose gridlock, but my goodness are we doomed.

  • Drax the Destroyer||

    I kind of hope they somehow get us mired in a pointless ground war in Europe per some of the insane rhetoric coming out of the Heritage foundation lately. There is no way a war in Europe can't improve our economy (Facepalm). I'm sure trying to track down and destroy the secret Hitler Cult that actually runs the EU will go about as smoothly as tracking down Bin Laden (Every time I see that fruitcake's name I imagine Jerry Lewis saying it).

    We have been mired in a one long war in Europe since 1941. They're just not shooting at each other right now.

    He's batshit crazy. I heard someone say he's trying to "solidify his union base". Is there any doubt he had that base anyway??? Now any independent small business person that is a member of the US Chamber of Commerce that believed ObamaCare would help, is now back on the fence. Axelrod is a fuck-tard for advising him on this and Barry O is just high as a kite for listening to him.

    Well they have to find someone to blame for what's about to happen...

    And it can't be Barack Obama!

    Do they really think I wouldn't despise what Barack Obama has done if it weren't for the Chamber of Commerce?

    Americans aren't rejecting Barack Obama because of the Chamber of Commerce; Americans are rejecting Barack Obama because they don't like Barack Obama...

    ...and it's no secret as to why. Just ask the person working next to you. I'd bet dollars to doughnuts it has nothing to do with the Chamber of Commerce.

  • Old Mexican||

    Well, it looks as if the republicans have beat Obama to demonizing the girls scouts:

    It seems you have trouble with math. Zeiger's DOB: February 20, 1985.

    And if you run for congress and call the Girl Scouts, "Radical feminists, lesbians, and cookie peddlers," you don't stay obscure for long. Anyways, Zeigler beat his opponent in the GOP primary 36 to 16. {Do I need to explain to you what those numbers mean or can you figure that out on your own?)

  • ||

    Except he's not running for Congress he's running for the state legislature in Washington state. And why should I be any more worried about him than the people telling me the Boy Scouts are promoting religious fundamentalism?

  • jacob||

    I'm with you on this GCGC, but in defense of Ecoliberterian the guy did write those opinions when he was 18-19.

  • alan||

    What is he doing? Trying to recruit members? I do know a very sexy lesbian who told me of her first sexual experience, and yes it was with another girl at a girl scout camp trip where they met for a tryst by climbing onto the back roof of a nearby barn so know one could see them. I can see why parents may have a problem with that but what are you going to do? Tell them not to fornicate when they get alone with another girl?

  • ||

    Lie. There's no such thing as a "very sexy lesbian." If they are in any way hot or even passable, they are bisexual. Have you seen the lesbians that are getting married in states with legalized homosexual marriages? Let's just say thank goodness they're gay; it means their ugly genes don't get passed on in the gene pool.

    There's an old saying that says: "Not even Bukharin was safe."

  • ||

    It's awful how BHO is clearly about to vag-punch that woman in the picture.

  • ||

    Yeah, I thought it was a little odd. The Chamber of Commerce has always struck me as a sort of mild, cowardly, establishment conservative outfit. Hardly a gang of raging libertarians. They probably donate to Democrats almost as much as Republicans. They certainly wouldn't have the balls to advocate radical changes to anything.

  • cynical||

    Times are changing, if this is any indication:

  • ||

    Without these helpful attacks and the ensuing kerfuffle, most voters would never have known about the chamber's political activities. Now they may question why the Chamber of Commerce, which supports an array of left-of-center policies—tax hikes, health care "reforms," bailouts, etc.—is so interested in seeing Democratic candidates beaten in November.

    Actually I suspect that he and many progressives probably see the word "Commerce" and go "EEEWWW! Profits! Capitalism! Evil!" And assume that all other Americans think the same way.

    They believe that merely suggesting someone is involved in making money will convince voters that they are evil. Because that's how they think.

  • ||

    why would Democrats run a campaign that reminds everyone that their opponents aren't exclusively tea party radicals and demon-Bush acolytes, but moderate groups of small and large businesses?

    Because progressives don't distinguish between demon-bush alcolytes, tea partiers and small and large businesses. Indeed, they see big business as the "Great Satan" for which the Tea Partiers are merely the "Little Satan" that is it's foot soldiers.

    Just think like a progressive, and all is made clear.

  • ||

    "why would Democrats run a campaign that reminds everyone that their opponents aren't exclusively tea party radicals and demon-Bush acolytes, but moderate groups of small and large businesses?"

    I think they just need to have something out there that puts the Republicans under some kind of suspicion. Like I said yesterday, the image in swing voters' heads right now has Barack Obama taking contributions from investment banks and the UAW, and then turning around and funneling taxpayer money to investment banks and the UAW...

    Tu quoque may not be a very effective argument, but it's probably better than nothing. ...especially when you consider the target--the general public, who will basically buy anything that tastes like bacon.

  • ||

    The mood of the country in 2008 had switched from pro-conservative to still pro-conservative, but tired of war, afraid of the economy, and sick of the dudes in charge. They voted for change, but my feeling was in part people voted for A)Not-Bush, Not-McCain, and especially not HER, and B)the guy who they believed was promising to save health care in a bad recession.

    Now, after two years, we are still a fairly conservative nation, and are reevaluating the choice in Obama.

    Like Clinton before him, I think that Obama basically misread his mandate after the election. Or, a la Karl Rove, Obama saw promoting his agenda as a reward for winning the election. Either way, the public has turned on his agenda, if not the man himself (also like Clinton), and I too expect solid Republican gains after the election.

    The Democrats are left trying to figure out what happened. Since nobody can believe that they are themselves to blame, the search for an external cause is always paramount. They will keep flailing around, trying to find something that will stick.

    I nominate James Madison's rotting corpse for president!

  • ||

    I'm coming to the conclusion that Obama is frankly ignorant. He doesn't understand how insurance works. He doesn't know what the laws of the land actually are. He doesn't even know what political interest groups are aligned with what part of the political spectrum. In fact is is astonishingly clueless about an incredible array of subjects. Which ... sort of makes sense considering he has close to zero experience. We're talking about a liberal activist who through some bizarre series of accidents, mainly involving having a black face and some telegenic manners, ends up as president. Sort of like 'Being There' only where instead of a mentally stunted gardner whose been locked in a house the whole life, he's just been locked in a liberal echo-chamber.

  • ||

    You're talking about the man who's uncle liberated the Jews from Auschwicz! Take that back!

  • ||

    I don't disagree with you; I'm just wonderin'...

    When did that first hit you?

    I've been jumping up and down about how pitifully ignorant he is since he took on Wall Street--that's what did it for me.

    It's a weird kinda thing that happens, I think, that when we see hoards of Tea Party people yelling about how ignorant the president is, some of us figure, well they must be wrong--'cause a hoard of Tea Party people couldn't possibly be right!

    I remember during the election, I went around telling cultural identity Republicans that I was gonna vote for Obama just because he's black--just to get their goat... But geez, just 'cause culture identity Tea Party type Republican are as dumb as box of hammers--that doesn't mean they're wrong about Obama.

    Jesse "the Body" Ventura was a governor. So was the Terminator. Nobody knows the depths of Jerry Brown's stupidity--that could go on forever... Stupid people can and do get elected!

    And that can happen with the President too! I hear Democrats talk about Palin being unqualified for office since she's stupid--but even if that is true? That hasn't slowed Obama down one bit.

    The man's an ignoramus. He literally knows nothing about what makes economies grow or how they work! He makes good speeches, but he knows practically nothing.

    Just 'cause millions voted for him doesn't make him smart. Just because millions of idiots think he's stupid doesn't mean they're wrong either.

  • ||

    Just in the last couple of weeks. Previously, I felt that he was a pretty well educated guy who just happened to believe a lot of hopelessly wrongheaded things. Must like other liberal-progressives. And probably, also was surrounded by more experienced Democrats that had their own agendas to push.

    I think it was when someone brought up that quote about how he thought his auto liability insurance should pay for the damage to his car.

    There have been a number of other WTF moments though.

  • ||

    By the way, there are some guys down yonder talkin' about Obama using the Black Panthers to intimidate ol' ladies or somethin'...?

    I have to confess, that made me want to take it all back. I hope all those dittoheads realize that the moment Obama gets out of office, libertarians like me are gonna turn on them like a pack of pit bulls.

    Reichstag fire?!

    Strange bedfellows indeed.

  • DK||

    What was so bad about Ventura? I was living in Minneapolis while he was Minnesota governor. Some of his policy positions included a yearly rebate on sales tax, property tax reform, gay rights, opposition to the teachers' union, opposition to public funding of higher education institutions, and support for the use of medical marijuana. Seems some of these ideas wouldn't be too out of place here.

    True, he didn't have the political coalition required to actually institute any of these changes. However, he vetoed a huge number of bills which came before him and generally imposed a stalemate between the executive and the legislature. He showed Minnesotans how good things can be if the state government basically does nothing for four years. He provided four years of entertainment with some of his (admittedly crazy) sound bites. Add the fact that he kept fucktards like Norm Coleman and Skip Humphrey out of office and I think he may have been Minnesota's best governor in recent memory.

  • Number 2||

    I said this before: this man's sole qualification for the Presidency is his ability to read a speech off of a TelePrompTer, and his political strategy is premised on the notion that we all believe whatever it is that he reads off a TelePrompTer.

  • ||

    He had two things going for him...

    1) Made a good speech

    2) He was the only one who was clearly against Iraq.

    Hillary Clinton used to criticize George Bush in Iraq from the right. She was sometimes to the right of Bush on the war.

    Voters were sick of the Bush Administration's fear mongering and sick of the Iraq War--and that made the difference for Obama. He could run against the Bush Administration and the War--and that's why the Dems broke for him...

    It was an accident of history. The only charismatic Democrat on the national stage who could credibly run against the war--at a time when everyone was sick of the war.

    It never had anything to do with anything else. He was a charismatic nobody who happened to be in the right place, at the right time on the right side of the issue that mattered.

    Everybody forgets how the Democrats completely lined up behind the Bush Administration during its first six years. I don't think Pelosi or Clinton ever opposed anything the Bush Administration wanted to do with the war. In retrospect after some leaked photos...maybe. ...but Obama was one of the very few who opposed the war...

    And for all I know, he did so for stupid reasons.

  • ||

    Well, from what I've heard quoted he had good reasons. The gist of his whole speech was that he wasn't anti-war, just anti-stupid wars, and that Iraq was the wrong war, at the wrong time.

  • ||

    Still, I wouldn't eliminate the possibility that he only appears to be incredibly prescient on that issue in retrospect.

    He's like the Elaine Garzarelli of politics. Gazarelli used to tour all over the country giving her spiel for her bear market hedge fund--every day for a year or more, she'd go around telling everybody the same gloomy story and was wrong, wrong, wrong...

    One day she gets a spot on CNBC (I think it was actually still FNN at the time), and she makes the same tired pitch she always made--except it just so happened to be that the day she was on calling for a crash was Black Monday '87...

    I don't think she'd ever been right before, and I'm not sure she's ever been right about anything since. It was the '87 equivalent of a flash crash.

    Moral of the story? You can make any prediction you want about the stock market generally--and eventually it will be true, it's just a matter of time... Politics is the same way, I'm sure of it.

    The only thing I've seen Barack Obama do that ever looked smart to me was his stance on the Iraq War and how he benefited from that in retrospect--but I guess what I'm trying to say is that there are a number of ways to explain going against the herd kinds of behavior. Sometimes it takes someone with the wisdom to see the future and the strength of his convictions...

    But there are other plausible explanations for going against the conventional wisdom, when leading Democrats with teams of professional political advisers and full time pollsters are telling their clients not to do what you're doing...?

    What are the chances that he was smart about that one thing--and he's just stupid about everything else?

    Maybe he's just a big dummy--and always has been. Hell, marketing can make people pierce their nipples and buy green toothpaste--it can make people vote for a dummy like Obama too.

    No shame in being fooled. ...not the first time anyway.

    Ken, marry me. Let's go to Vermont. They'll understand.

    Look.

    I'm from Canada - as if I haven't written that enough, eh? - and from DAY ONE Obama struck me as an empty suit in over his head.

    It was all snazz and no substance.

    BUT, as Cicero believed and proved centuries ago, giving speeches IS acting.

  • Number 2||

    Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't a Reason contributor named Terry Michael once describe Obama as "perhaps the smartest man ever to hold the presidency?"

  • ||

    The $64,000 Question is: What will be the Democrats' "October Surprise" this year? What will President Obama or his supporters cook up as the "Election of 2010 Reichstag Fire"? How many local poling places already are ready to count Democratic voters' ballots but not Republican ballots? How many poling places have Black Panther storm troopers as "poll watchers" and "election officials"? How many dead people, felons, cartoon characters and miscellanous millions of illegal immigrants will vote in 2010? How are we going to have any confidence in the outcome of the elections, no matter who wins in the courts?

  • Hooha||

    Sadly, this weighs on my mind as well. They sufficiently buried all those shenanagins after '08. Makes me wonder how many of those swing states really swung for Obama.

  • ||

    Like I was saying, just 'cause there are a lot of people out there who think Obama's an idiot--and who also believe other strange things--doesn't necessarily mean they're wrong about Obama being an idiot.

  • ||

    Just follow the money-trail--it leads all the way back to teh Kenya, I'm sure...

    Are you guys for reals?

  • Doh!||

    If we borrow money from China and then give some of that Chinese money to Teachers Unions via keeping teachers employed etc. Then that Teachers Union makes a donation to those politicians that gave them the Chinese money. Is this not foreign money being injected into the Democrats election campaigns in a indirect sort of way? Give the unions billions and they give back millions. Everyone else gets screwed.

    THE END OF AMERICA---------Obama and his Chicago boys are still guffawing over how all the chumps in the media reported this one with a straight face. Hey, it's a just another reason why running a gangster government is nothing but laughs for the Obama crew in the White House.

    OBAMA THE DESTROYER
    OBAMA IS LIKE A DESTRUCTIVE CHILD WHO TAKES APART A WATCH AND THEN CAN’T PUT IT BACK TOGETHER AGAIN. HE HAS TAKEN APART THE CAR INDUSTRY, PLACING IT UNDER FEDERAL CONTROL. HE IS DISMANTLING THE BEST HEALTHCARE SYSTEM IN THE WORLD, REPLACING IT WITH SOCIALIZED MEDICINE. AND TODAY, HE STARTED DESTROYING OUR MILITARY BY SIGNING AN INSANE NUCLEAR TREATY WITH RUSSIA.

    THIS TREATY, THE WORK OF THE MENTALLY DISORDERED LEFT, WILL MEAN A 30% REDUCTION IN OUR NUCLEAR ARSENAL AND A STEEP REDUCTION IN OUR SUBMARINES AND STRATEGIC BOMBERS. THAT’S ON TOP OF THE FACT THAT OBAMA HAS ALREADY SLASHED THE DEFENSE BUDGET AND STOPPED A COMPREHENSIVE MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM. NOW, IN THE NAME OF DIPLOMACY, OBAMA WANTS TO DESTROY OUR NUKES JUST WHEN IRAN AND NORTH KOREA ARE BUILDING THEIRS. OBAMA CLAIMS THIS TREATY WILL COAX IRAN INTO DISCONTINUING ITS NUKE PROGRAM. THAT’S CRAZY. THE HITLER OF IRAN WANTS THESE WEAPONS TO INTIMIDATE THE UNITED STATES AND DESTROY ISRAEL. THIS MEANINGLESS PIECE OF PAPER WILL NOT STOP HIM.

    AND WHAT ABOUT RUSSIA? ANYONE WHO THINKS THEY’LL KEEP THEIR WORD IS CRAZY. RUSSIA HAS A HISTORY OF RENEGGING ON NUKE AGREEMENTS. IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO VERIFY HOW MANY THEY’VE DESTROYED, AND THEY’VE ALREADY SAID THAT THEY CAN PULL OUT OF THE AGREEMENT AT ANY TIME. FURTHERMORE, BOTH RUSSIA AND CHINA ARE IN THE PROCESS OF MODERNIZING THEIR NUKES. MOST OF RUSSIA’S NUCLEAR ARSENAL IS AGING AND OUTDATED. IF WE CONTINUED AS WE ARE, RUSSIA WOULD FADE AS A NUCLEAR POWER. THIS AGREEMENT HELPS THEM! HOW MUCH OF OUR OWN ARSENAL IS OUTDATED? OBAMA ISN’T SAYING.

    OBAMA DID SAY TODAY THAT THE SPREAD OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS TO MORE STATES IS AN UNACCEPTABLE RISK TO GLOBAL SECURITY. AND YET THIS INSANE TREATY INCREASES THAT RISK. OBAMA ALSO SAID TODAY THAT WHILE THE TREATY WAS A GOOD FIRST STEP FORWARD, IT’S THE FIRST IN A LONG WAY FORWARD. “IT WILL SET THE STAGE FOR FURTHER CUTS.” FURTHER CUTS. OBAMA DOESN’T JUST WANT TO REDUCE OUR ARSENAL. HE WANTS TO ELIMINATE IT COMPLETELY. HE IS OUR DESTROYER-IN-CHIEF. AND THE ONE REMAINING CHANCE TO END HIS AGENDA OF APPEASEMENT IS THE U.S. SENATE, WHICH MUST RATIFY THE TREATY BY A TWO-THIRDS MAJORITY. HE COULD BE STOPPED THERE, BUT WHERE IS THE REPUBLICAN OPPOSITION? EACH DAY, MORE AND MORE, IT’S AS IF A HOSTILE FOREIGN POWER HAS TAKEN OVER THE COUNTRY.---- Barack Hussein Obama , threatens friends and bows to Mmslim.
    INPEACH OBAMA ,GOD OPEN YOUR EYES.///For us there are only two possiblities: either we remain american or we come under the thumb of the communist Mmslim Barack Hussein OBAMA. This latter must not occur.THE COMMANDER.

    Obama and his Chicago boys are still guffawing over how all the chumps in the media reported this one with a straight face. Hey, it's a just another reason why running a gangster government is nothing but laughs for the Obama crew in the White House.
    TO THE WEAK-KNEED REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRAT�..TO ALL THE COMMUNIST IN THE IG,FBI,CIA,AND U.S. Senators and the left wing media outlets�..Stop Obama's Attack on Our Borders, Economy, and Security,Wake up america!!!! This goverment is the most corrupt we have had in years. The good old boy network is very much in charge.Mr. obama and pelosi are the puppet masters.How many of their good friends benefited by the agreement ” what a farce. All of the u.sSenators voted for this. I am ashamed to say I voted for the these corupted self serving politicians.With good reason they picked an out of towner to be president.All u.s departments need an overhaul. We need to rid ourselves of the puppet masters and the dept heads that bow down to obama and pelosi.I am sick of the lip service I have been getting from these dummies over violations, their friends are getting away with.in the goverment . Barack Hussein Obama , threatens friends and bows to Mmslim.
    INPEACH OBAMA ,GOD OPEN YOUR EYES.///For us there are only two possiblities: either we remain american or we come under the thumb of the communist Mmslim Barack Hussein OBAMA. This latter must not occur.THE COMMANDER.
    OBAMA goes about his business by speaking the lie. II Thessalonians 2 says that he comes "with all deceivableness of unrighteousness." Revelation 13:12 says, "and he spoke as a dragon...." Revelation 17 tells us that he was a false prophet, a prophet being one whose calling it is to speak and to teach. The armies of the world may have guns and tanks and bombs to bring people into submission; but the power of speech and ideas is a mighty power. In his initial attempts to destroy the cause of God Obama used a serpent to deceive the woman with crooked speech: "You will be like God." Now he uses a "dragon" who speaks crafty, lying words. His speeches will be heard by millions who will hang on his persuasive rhetoric. The content as well as the form of his speech will attract. Like most false prophets, he will even be sincere and passionate. But he is a liar. He adds dashes of truth to the mix, so that his lie tastes like truth. He will use all the right catchwords, using the language of the church, even throwing in a Bible text or two. But he is the ultimate Liar, and will deceive many.
    OBAMA will use every tool available: school teachers, politicians, news broadcasters, artists, musicians, scientists and doctors, lawyers and businessmen. All will be pressed into the service of OBAMA to deceive men. But especially he will use those whose calling it is to persuade and to teach -- men who claim to be preachers of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
    THE COMMANDER,,, REPOST THIS IF YOU AGREE .. THE END OF AMERICA .If one asks what he should look for in the days to come, I say this: there will be political union all nations will be gathered together into one mighty empire. This is the first of obama. There will also be religious union, joining all the religions and religious empires of the world. The powerful ecumenical movement of today, led by the religions of Christianity, will in the end fully succeed, swallowing up all the other religions of the world. You may expect to see one man over it all. obama. The Commander

    So, who's left to demonize? The Girl Scouts? Rotary Clubs maybe?

    Yeah, those cookie-swilling little sluts should have been aborted! As for all of those weirdos meeting in secret at the Rotary, they're to blame for the economy: they took all the money and put it all in their Rotary cave somewhere.

    Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how he managed to become a "natural born" American citizen between 1981 and 2008..

    Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by his speech before Congress and the disastrous spending plan he has presented to Congress, the sooner we learn the truth of all this, the better.

    If you Don't care that Your President is not a natural born Citizen and in Violation of the Constitution, then Delete this, and then lower your American Flag to half-staff, because the U.S. Constitution is already on life-support, and won't survive much longer.

    If you do care then Forward this to as many patriotic Americans as you can, because our country is being looted and ransacked! TO THE WEAK-KNEED REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRAT…..TO ALL THE COMMUNIST IN THE IG,FBI,CIA,AND U.S. Senators and the left wing media outlets…..Wake up america!!!!
