Barack obama is no ordinary (alleged) president and this next election is just not more of the same ho hum democrat vs republican. Only talk radio is sounding the warning. I’m sure there are more voices out there, but here are a few of the leading talk radio hosts in the last couple days. I believe it was Michele Bachmann who said this may be the last election we have to stop the march towards socialism/marxism or something even worse. There is no longer any doubt what this obama is all about and where he is taking us. This is a dead serious matter.
On his radio show last night, Mark Levin said that President Barack Obama has caused a “constitutional crisis” by appointing members to the National Labor Relations Board and a director to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau without going through the constitutionally required Senate confirmation process.
“We have a constitutional crisis,” Levin said. “It is in fact a constitutional crisis.”
“The President of the United States is trashing the Constitution now day in and day out,” Levin said.
RUSH LIMBAUGH: All right, some people in the e-mail have taken exception with my description of Obama as “lawless” and acting outside the Constitution. Let me share with you a quote, and this is from a video. It might have been from yesterday out in Ohio, but it’s within the past couple days. Obama said, “When Congress refuses to act — and as a result, hurts our economy and puts our people at risk — then I have an obligation as president to do what I can without them.” He got applause. “I have an obligation to act on behalf of the American people. I’m not going to stand by while a minority in the Senate puts party ideology ahead of the people that we elected to serve. Not with so much at stake, not at this make-or-break moment for middle class Americans. We’re not gonna let that happen.”
Now, the Founding Fathers said this is exactly what’s supposed to happen! It’s called “the separation of powers,” and it’s to make sure that things like this do not happen, that an all-powerful executive does not run roughshod over the government.
If Barack Obama wins in 2012, America is headed for something worse than a failing European-style socialist state, top-rated radio host Michael Savage said on his nationally syndicated show today.
“I have to tell you that if this man, God forbid, is the next president of the United States, we’re going to be living in something along the lines of – people say Europe. I don’t believe it’s going to be like Europe – I think it will be closer to Chavez’s South American dictatorship,” he told his “Savage Nation” audience.
We have been warned.

What will happen to Fannie and Freddie? So you think Obama’s a socialist?
And so as the federal government proceeds to directly finance houses and hold the mortgages by eliminating Fannie and Freddie and creating whatever government agency to replace it, then who will own your house?
And so what is the answer to Bill O’Reilly’s question, Is Obama a Socialist?
“Bill O’Reilly starts out by making this statement: “Socialist? – [does that mean that] if he could, he’d take your house because that’s what socialists do?””

The way socialism and communism takes hold is by offering the people what sounds wonderful but in the end turns out to be death and destruction.

Iain (here and here) and Dan (here) are right to be outraged at President Obama’s brazenness (if not lawlessness) on the recess appointments, but it is not like he lacks accomplices. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has backed the president’s play, according to the Hill. Senate Democrats will no doubt echo that support.
The hypocrisy here is blatant, even by congressional standards. In 2007, Reid kept the senate in pro forma session in order to block President Bush from making recess appointments — particularly, the eminently qualified Steve Bradbury’s appointment to head DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel. “I had to keep the Senate in pro forma session to block the Bradbury appointment,” Reid recounted in 2008. “That necessarily meant no recess appointments could be made.
Now he is backing obama’s lawless appointments in the very same circumstances.
This is the way Harry Reid and the democrats want the country to run – all rules or laws apply to republicans but not to the demon democrats. And we are well on our way to this diabolical mindset and hypocrisy ruling the day. And the democrats supposedly hate hypocrisy so much. Oh, really.
There’s not a grain of integrity in this man called Harry Reid. You would think at the ends of his days he would want to muster a little honesty to take with him to the other side. One thing about it, there is an equalizer that applies even to democrats.
Add Nancy Pelosi. http://news.yahoo.com/pelosi-glad-obama-made-bold-recess-appointments-while-183704902.html
