Arrogance and rudeness are training
wheels on the bicycle of life -- for weak people who cannot keep their balance without
them. -Laura Teresa Marquez
Saul Alinsky would be proud of his acolyte who now sits in the White
House. He would also be embarrassed at the shortness of the cycle he describes in
Rules for Radicals. In that book he details a methodology for taking down
those who are in power and states quite plainly that eventually the same tactics would be
used against them. What were his politics? The politics of change was how he described it.
It only took two years for the tide to start to turn as evidenced by the 2010 elections.
Obama has failed to recognize the shortcomings in the philosophy taught by Alinsky and the
others he attached himself to. When youre trying to climb the ladder you have a
clear focus and a target that is easy to isolate. Thats why it works on the way up.
You can isolate, marginalize and destroy with ease. Once youre at the top its
a different game and when you attempt to use those tactics against the population,
youre less like a laser and more like a claymore. When you try to marginalize any
group of people there are ripples that flow through the nation and people begin to see the
lie for what it is because those youre attempting to marginalize are their
neighbors. Alinsky tactics dont work once youre at the top. They end up
marginalizing the user not the target. Im grateful for his arrogance. How about
another shout out from the pulpit of The First Church of Emasculate
He has threatened the media and said hes watching them. He has
told them to be mindful of their sources as he points to Drudgereport.com. Never mind the
fact that all Drudge does is put up links to articles other people have written. Hes
so in touch with reality. He even threatened federal agents who have been trying to do
their jobs. The Fast and Furious investigation is my favorite example of what this
administration is like and it has all of the elements of this administrations arrogance on
full display. Mike Vanderboegh was one of the men who pushed the story and got it out
there in the open. Surprisingly he did it through a major media source and it wasnt
Fox either. Mike had agents who were talking to him and feeding him the facts until
suddenly Holder and Obama said there was an ongoing investigation into the issue and
anyone caught leaking that information would be investigated. Being told they would be the
focus of another newer investigation silenced them. Fortunately the damage was already
done and Darrel Issa is all over the cover up.
Obama made the really huge mistake of sealing records
so that Issa couldnt get to them. Its an epic IQ fail on the scale of
Watergate. One that will see him impeached and removed even if we get another Zombie
Apocalypse general election with the dead voting him in once more. Hes had a lot of
epic IQ fails, one of which was the undoing of the one thing Carter got right. Egypt and
Israel sat down at Camp David and found peace. Obama undid that and in spite of that
Carter will open the DNC Convention and fawn over Obama. Amazing really.
Back to that first epic IQ fail of sealing the records. The reason
that was an epic fail was that there is no reason he would do that unless there are some
pretty damning details in there. Not only that, but he painted himself into a corner when
he made that move. Politics is unfortunately about favors and thats where the
Politics makes strange bedfellows. comment comes from. You wont be able
to shield your mind from the upcoming imagery. How about a threesome
Obama and a high ranking drug cartel member who needs a special favor just as much as
Obama and Holder do. Im talking about Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla who was
extradited to Chicago recently. His allegations are that Fast and Furious was about
something completely different than what everyone thinks it is and that its been
going on since 2004. The first part of that accusation is designed to create some spin and
the last part is designed to do what this administration has done from the start,
Blame Bush! They are trying to derail the investigation momentarily so they
can claim that they had nothing to do with it in the first place and they inherited that
too. Hard to explain why you used executive privilege then, isnt it? I suspect
they have dug themselves an even deeper hole because of the panic factor. Take the lid off
of this next layer theyve put up there and you will find even more stink. Their
timing was off and I think it was a simple case of Premature Articulation caused by pure
sweet unbridled panic.
