Obama and FDR: Birds of a Feather

The way that the axis of evil – otherwise known as Obama, Pelosi and Reid – are trashing the Constitution, you’d think it was parchment toilet paper.

That’s why I would give anything to see the likes of Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Madison and Franklin, come back to life and treat the liberal rabble the way that American patriots once dealt with English tea.

If the Founding Fathers were to make a return appearance and see what has become of their noble experiment, they would have reason to regret all the time, blood, sweat and tears, they expended wrangling over the wording of that sacred document.

This isn’t the first time that a president with a dictatorial bent has tried to ignore the Constitution. Most notably, in the 1930s, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, aided and abetted by his own versions of David Axelrod, Van Jones, Andy Stern and Cass Sunstein, tried to transform America’s economy from free-market capitalism to Soviet-style socialism.

Because, like Barack Hussein Obama, FDR had a lap dog Congress, willing and eager to rubber-stamp his loony left-wing agenda, the only thing holding him back was the Supreme Court. But, instead of accepting limitations on his authority, FDR responded by attempting to pack the Court. His plan was to raise the number of justices from nine to 14. He figured that if he could personally select five additional justices, it would ensure his controlling all three branches of the federal government.

So it was that long before Obama’s favorite hatchet man, Rahm Emanuel, announced that a crisis is a terrible thing to waste, FDR attempted to use the Great Depression to gobble up unlimited power.

Fortunately, there were a number of Americans, including Democrats, who were noticing what was taking place in Germany, Italy and the Soviet Union, at the time, and were not anxious to see FDR take his place alongside Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin.

By this time, every American should realize that financial downturns, much like the earth’s climate changes, are cyclical in nature. However, tyranny, like suicide, is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

As things turned out, thanks to death and retirement, FDR was able to appoint eight justices, seven of them between 1937 and 1941, including such fawning disciples as Hugo Black, Felix Frankfurter and William O. Douglas.

Although George Washington was content to serve eight years and then retire to Mount Vernon, it took death to finally evict FDR from the White House.

Obama, who not only shares FDR’s addiction to cigarettes, but his hunger for power and his determination to radically transform America, is, I believe, the greatest threat that has ever faced our nation. As bleak as things are, the silver lining is that he is the man who campaigned on behalf of R. Creigh Deeds, Jon Corzine and, most recently, Martha Coakley. At this point, it’s only a rumor, but I’ve heard that the RNC is negotiating with the president to campaign non-stop for Democratic candidates later this year.

It would appear that any liberal who thinks that he can be re-elected next November by riding Obama’s coattails will be in for a rude awakening. Based on his record thus far, if Obama was a baseball team, he would be the Chicago Black Sox; if he was a disease, he’d be the bubonic plague; and if he was a ship, he’d be the Titanic.
