The Constitution No Longer Guarantees What the Country CAN’T DO TO YOU and it Now Guarantees What the Country WILL DO FOR YOU

JFK is spinning like… a thing that spins fast. (I’m tired)

From Thomas Lifson -

President Obama signaled a hard left agenda for his second term in the very first words of his victory speech in Chicago last night.

It required only 31 words (23 if you omit ‘thank-you’s) for me to become doubly appalled with the speech, delivered to a cheering throng at one of McCormick Place’s smaller rooms. Speaking in Obama Code, he indicated what he intends for the next 4 years.

“Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much. Tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny to perfect our union moves forward.”

The first element of the Obama Code is the startling state of his grammar. What is the subject of “moves forward”?

Grammar, you see, is how we clarify meaning. The Obama Code rests on vagueness, on multiple meanings that can be read into a statement. For the cognoscenti, the meaning can be clear, while the rest of us respond to what we guess is meant, based on the pleasant connotations of many of the words chosen. Nice words like “perfect.”

The second element of the Obama Code is the wink to the hard left buried in his word choices. You see, he told us that our “destiny” is “to perfect our union.” The wisdom of our Constitution, a “flawed document” in Obama’s eyes, is that it does not promise perfection, but rather checks and balances. It consists of “negative rights” and doesn’t obligate government to guarantee largesse (“positive rights,” like health care) to its citizens.

That must change. That is the agenda. President Obama has shown a willingness to ignore the Constitution whenever it suits him, overriding creditors’ rights, ignoring the Constitutional cabinet officers in favor of czars not subject to the inconvenience of a confirmation process, assassinating American citizens with no judicial involvement, and issuing frightening executive orders.

    “…The Obama Code rests on vagueness, on multiple meanings that can be read into a statement….”

    PRECISELY!! Lifson hit it on the head.

    Obumphuk told the American people four years ago what his intentions were – “to fundamentally transform the United States of America”

    And all of the rubes who voted for him read into that statement what they wanted America to be. Nobody forced him to define what he meant, just as nobody has forced him to reveal his background (b.c., passport, college transcripts, etc.)

    I have always said that the man who calls himself Barack Obama was nothig but a Rorschach ink blot – onto which the idiots projected what they wanted to see in him.
