It was an amazing speech from a guy whose political party loathes America, and he himself has long attempted to fundamentally transform America. This ABC News headline is perhaps the most ironic
President Obama Tells DNC ‘America is Already Great’ and ‘We Don’t Look to Be Ruled’
President Obama delivered a resounding defense of the state of the country at the Democratic Convention Wednesday night and said Hillary Clinton would help defend his legacy in the White House, continuing the work left unfinished during his presidency.
The president also offered a stinging rebuke of Clinton’s Republican rival Donald Trump, painting him as fear-mongering and unqualified for the job and saying “we don’t look to be ruled.”
Says the guy whose use of major Executive Orders has been staggering. Says the guy who started an air war against Libya without even bothering to notify Congress for days. Says the guy who shut down national monuments when he didn’t get his way during budget negotiations after agreeing to a deal. Says the guy who sends his wife and kids off on taxpayer funded vacations. Says the guy whose every proclamation is about increasing the power of the President and Executive branch.
“This is a more fundamental choice -– about who we are as a people, and whether we stay true to this great American experiment in self-government,” he said. “We Democrats have always had plenty of differences with the Republican Party, and there’s nothing wrong with that; it’s precisely this contest of ideas that pushes our country forward.”
Trump has appealed to quite a few Americans because we elect people to office who then refuse to accede to the wishes of the people, doing what they want. People are tired of a far flung government failing to listen. They are tired of the unaccountability.
“America is already great. America is already strong. And I promise you, our strength, our greatness, does not depend on Donald Trump,” he said, questioning Trump’s qualifications.
Obama and his crew have been tearing down America for decades. He’s spent his entire term telling us how disappointed he is in the citizens. It’s his side that burns American flags, and had to be shamed into putting a few flags in public view after having none on day one of the convention. He’s weakened our military and harmed our economy. He and his folks have worked hard to change America into something else. Someone who thinks that “America is already great” doesn’t seem to “fundamentally transform” America.
“Anyone who threatens our values, whether fascists or communists or jihadists or homegrown demagogues, will always fail in the end,” he added.
Again, says the guy who rules by his pen and phone. Of course, the phone is used to call up his appointees and tell them to increase their power through non-legislative fiats. It isn’t used to actually communicate and talk with the duly elected legislative branch. Oh, and says the guy who wants to violate our 2nd Amendment rights. Says the guy who violated the spirit of the 1st by targeting political opposition with not just his verbal assaults, but with the use of federal agencies. And violates the religious rights of citizens via his contraception mandate, created out of thin air, as it appeared nowhere in Obamacare. Says the guy who will force schools to force girls to share bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers with boys who feel they are girls (some just for a period to spy on naked girls). Says the guy who forced through a deal that will simply kick Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions down the road 10-11 years. Says the guy who demanded that the Paris climate accord be drafted in a way as to avoid putting it in from of Congress. Says the guy who denigrates the values of average Americans.
Says the guy whose economy is floundering. Says the guy who has seen race relations significantly worsen. Says the guy who denigrates police officers. Says the guy who has been less than transparent. Says the guy who started out by blaming America for being attacked on 9/11, wondering what we did wrong. Really, the speech was like he forgot that he has been president the past 7+ years.
