The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Obama’s Collapse

Written By: Bob - Sep• 15•12

None other than Professor Glenn Reynolds calls for Barack Obama to resign for failing to uphold his oath of office:

By sending — literally — brownshirted enforcers to engage in — literally — a midnight knock at the door of a man for the non-crime of embarrassing the President of the United States and his administration, President Obama violated that oath. You can try to pretty this up (It’s just about possible probation violations! Sure.), or make excuses or draw distinctions, but that’s what’s happened. It is a betrayal of his duties as President, and a disgrace.

He won’t resign, of course. First, the President has the appreciation of free speech that one would expect from a Chicago Machine politician, which is to say, none. Second, he’s not getting any pressure. Indeed, the very press that went crazy over Ari Fleischer’s misrepresented remarks seems far less interested in the actions of an administration that I repeat, literally sent brown-shirted enforcers to launch a midnight knock on a filmmaker’s door.

But Obama’s behavior — and that of his enablers in the press — has laid down a marker for those who are paying attention. By these actions he is, I repeat, unfit to hold office. I hope and expect that the voters will agree in November.

The “visit” by authorities follows the White House attempt to “lean” upon Google, suggesting that they should take a look at the film and see if it met YouTube’s terms of service (which it clearly and obviously did).

Bloody handprints from the men he betrayed, and midnight raids for practicing free speech. Is this the United States of America anymore?

Obama’s brownshirts in action. Investigating whether “free speech” is a parole violation.

These are just the latest symbols of the legacy of failure that haunts the last months of the most pathetic Presidency in American history.

May we never make the mistake of selecting flash over substance again.

    Need to keep reminding people that Obama has been bragging about killing Muslim leaders. That seems to me to be more significant than a film. How many cops does it take to ask one innocent man to make statements?

    Pres Obama had an American citizen arrested in violation of the First Amendment. Instead of defending this man’s right to speech, he’s had a citizen arrested for a video.

    Meanwhile Obama’s own bragging of killing HUNDREDs (or thousands) of Jihadis – yea, that had nothing to do with it.
