Gingrich Gets it Right

From CNN:

“I am not for a narrow victory,” he said. “I am for crushing the left in every single way.”

Gingrich was, of course, Matt’s first choice for nominee – he was my 2nd or 3rd (Santorum was always my first).  For me, Romney was a bit back there in the pack but always with the understanding that the crucial necessity is to ensure that Obama leaves office on January 20th, 2013.

The capstone for getting rid of Obama came, in my view, just recently – when it was revealed that in 1991 he was described as being born in Kenya.  Naturally, the Obamatons leaped to in action when this came out and called it a “mistake”.  But I don’t buy that – I call it a lie, instead.   Here is the key to Obama:  he’ll say or do anything to advance himself.  Back when he was just starting out being from an upper class, white Hawaiian family just didn’t cut enough liberal ice – being a foreign born son of a radical anti-British communist!  Well, that did the trick quite nicely.

From “composite” girlfriends in his autobiography (which, it would seem, millions of liberal pinheads bought but few read) to joining Wright’s racist church, Obama has merely crafted a narrative for himself as best suited his immediate needs.  And the cruelty with which he tosses aside old friends like Wright (say what you will about Wright, but have some sympathy:  for 20 years Obama and Wright were close and then Wright got in the way of the newest narrative, and he had to go) is just another indicator of the wrongness of Obama.

I don’t really know what Obama is up to – he’s up to radical leftism, but with what goal in mind, I don’t know:  I suspect there isn’t one in the traditional, political sense.  All we’re seeing now is yet another narrative, this one designed to get Obama re-elected.  After that, he’ll just go on to the next narrative – whatever makes him continue to rise up the ladder in his own estimation.  The trouble is that we need a President – someone who cares less about himself and more about the United States.  A re-elected Obama will not just pursue stupid, destructive policies, but he’ll also ignore any problem which can’t lead to more glory for Obama – and that is a recipe for national and global catastrophe.

Gingrich sees this – and sees more:  Obama must go, but the left as a whole must be crushed.  Our only task as conservatives, patriots and Americans from now until November 6th is to beat these people.  Because if we don’t, we’re going to pay too high a price for failure.

    Ama: “And no, there were no ‘other breaches of legality and human rights’. You are simply a tool, a mindless parrot of lies and propaganda,and to have you then lecture on things like truth and honor is just bizarre. I can’t think of any poster in recent memory who has posted so many lies, one after the other, packed into post after post.”

    Bla bla bla.

    In 2006 The Supreme Court ruled in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld that military commissions established by the Bush admin to try detainees at Guantanamo violated both the Uniform Code of Military Justice and Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions. Most rational people would call that a breach of legality.

    In 2008 the Supreme Court ruled in Boumediene v. Bush that the Military Commissions Act of 2006 was an unconstitutional suspension of the right of habeas corpus. A breach of legality, also of human rights that have been recognized since the Magna Carta.

    The Fifth Amendment guarantees no deprivation of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. The Bush admin ordered the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens Jose Padilla and Yaser Hamdi without access to counsel, charges or opportunity to appear before a civil judicial officer to challenge their detentions. That also was a violation of both the Constitution and human rights.

    And that barely scratches the surface. There is extraordinary rendition (an egregious violation of human rights), there is torture, deceiving Congress – not to mention a long list of articles of impeachment that were entered against the Bush administration you can easily find by Googling. Of course it was ignored by nearly everyone because the public had no stomach for another impeachment, even if this one would have been more relevant than Clinton’s by magnitudes, constitutionally speaking. Congress – either party – wasn’t about to punch that tar baby. The War on Terra was seen as sufficient excuse for just about any excess the Bush admin wanted to pursue.

    This is not to re-litigate the offenses of the Bush admin, but to show how disconnected from reality your logorrhea is. As for warrantless wiretapping, I dismiss your folksy rationalization excusing Bush’s constitutional violations. In short the Democratic Congress of 2008 legalized the bulk of Bush’s spying after the fact by vesting new power in the government to eavesdrop without warrants. I’ve been steamed at Obama for this, and for many other continuations of Bush policies (plus human rights violations he’s done on his own) ever since. That’s a whole nother topic – however nothing Obama has done to date would make me vote for Romney in the coming election. There are degrees of wrongness and I definitely will choose what I see as the lesser of known evils.

      As I have said, you give obAMATEUR a pass while you continue to whine and bitch about Bush. A pass on “attacking a country without provocation or threat” (Libya) and as you admit, obAMATEUR’s continuation of Bush’s policies after promising he would repeal them (bearing false witness against the brotherhood of man).

      Thank you for reaffirming that you are a mindless drone and a hack. In short, you are what Stalin said of Useful Idiots.

      in 2009, obAMATEUR signed the Military Commissions Act of 2009.

      Tell us denny, this legislation upheld the use of Military Commissions and tribunals, how does this NOT go against your oh so pious beliefs and that these commissions do not “gut the Geneva Conventions” as you put it?

      Of course, you will find a way to weasel out and again give obAMATEUR a pass. You say you are steamed at obAMATEUR, but of course you NEVER criticize him here in this forum.

      On the contrary, you mindlessly defend him.

      Also tell us, the evils that Romney has done that outweighs, as you claim, the “evils” obAMATUER has done….

      … this should be interesting, but knowing denny, he will not touch this.

      Wow. Three people and you use this to indict an entire administration and policy of 8 years.

      I suppose you are hostile to, say, the entire government of Washington DC. After all, the laws there are broken every single SECOND, by tens of thousands of people. This HAS to mean the mayor, police chief, and entire administration are in favor of murder, rape and robbery, eh?

      You are such a silly bunny, and such a drama queen.

      It’s a holiday weekend. Take some time off, polish your smug some more, and see if you can find a new topic you can use to illustrate your many phobias and obsessions. These are pretty worn out.
