“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.
