Skip to comments.Obama's Target is Not Just Republicans, but the Constitution Itself
Posted on 01/21/2013 5:39:38 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
President Barack Obama's second inaugural address has been described as one of the most partisan ever given, heralding a sweeping left-wing agenda and demonizing his opponents. But President Obama's target is not simply the Republican Party: it is the Constitution itself, and the values of liberty that it enshrines.
In the address itself, President Obama made the case that liberty is not timeless; that it must adjust to the times, and that "preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action"--not to defend those freedoms from infringement, but to give them "meaning" through government regulation and redistribution.
White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer put the point more bluntly in remarks published earlier today:
Theres a moment of opportunity now thats important, Pfeiffer said. Whats frustrating is that we dont have a political system or an opposition party worthy of the opportunity.
Note the contempt in Pfeiffer's words--not just for the political opposition, but for the political system itself--a system designed by the Framers to include checks and balances to hold government power firmly in check...

They won’t be able to do something about repealing it yet. In 2014, when the Republicans are swept out of the Senate and the House, it will be a done deal.
I'm sure it's just me, but I hear disturbing echoes in this statement.
In 1923, Albert Leo Schlageter engaged in acts of terrorism in the Ruhr area, in protest against the French occupation that followed WWI. In time, Schlageter was arrested, tried and executed. In time, he was elevated to the status of Nazi Martyr. Hitler said: "The German people are not truly worthy of a Schlageter."
When I hear a leader, or his minion, say (if effect), "the people I lead are not worthy enough", then I know I'm dealing with fascism.
Give this sociopath enough rope and he’ll hang himself.
Why should Republicans be worried, they are going Left just like Obama, it is Conservatives that should be worried, but then again I don’t worry myself about what drug addicted Marxist Lawn Jockey think of me!
Those types of rumors have been afloat since Nixon was president. But I do think this yahoo in the WH is more motivated to acheive that end. And who knows...with the results of this past election...it might be doable for those who want a king.
From his prepubescent years, Obama has been under the tutelage of those who have as their sole objective ... undermine and ultimately doing away with the US Constitution. With this heritage, what do you expect?
The perfect Manchurian candidate. Brainwashed from his youth then financed by the richest ... voila... Obama.
“Why should Republicans be worried, they are going Left just like Obama,...”
The Pubbies have been Left for a long time.
The fact that the moocher was so open about dissing Boehner was very disconcerting. Even worse - why was he trying to even be polite to her?
The “we are all together in this” is obviously a bunch of pure crap. Not that we here didn’t know that but you’d think it would start to be obvious to others.
I don’t get the MSM - what do they have to gain by an overthrow of the Constitution?
ClearCase_guy, well said & crystal clear.
Reporters today know that they can make history by making Obama an all-powerful demogogue. If they have to sacrifice the Constitution as part of that effort, what does it matter? It's not like some fascist dictatorship is going to come along and limit the freedom of the press ...
Indeed. But it is simply amazing that this narcissist cannot see that he has done and achieved nothing on his own or by himself.
He is a complete fabrication of the tyrannical wealthy and powerful, yet he struts around as if he’s a self-made man.
And a side note, I’m so sick of his “ghetto-tough smoker’s voice” and then seeing pictures of his skinny, meatless little TS arms. Puny little weakling coward that has never had to fight to defend himself his entire life but always, always, always, performed his antagonizing from behind people who were there to protect him, the cowardly runt.
Inside every socialist, there is a totalitarian trying to get out.
Liberals know best. So why should they not enjoy dictatorial powers so that they may order others to do as they wish them to?
Liberals have no problem whatsoever with a dictatorship -- indeed, it is the most desirable form of governance -- so long as it is one of their's.
I am not joking.
True enough and they wonder why they can’t win against a flaming Marxist.
He doesn’t care, he is living the promised good life. He plays gulf, parties and struts. His handlers take care of the rest. He will leave public life a very rich man with a place in history.
Ive known for a long time what Obama’s TRUE agenda is..to destroy the United States of America..I am surprised it’s taken so long for some people to see the truth about this guy..but people just don’t care..as long as they get their freebies they don’t give a crap..they are soon to learn a very valuable lesson..when you get freebies there is a cost, and its your freedom..something that all the freebies in the world can’t buy
I dont get the MSM - what do they have to gain by an overthrow of the Constitution?
The mouse in the White House has squeaked.
