THE OBAMA MANIFESTO – 25 REASONS TO SUPPORT FAILURE

Posted by Andrew Roman on January 27, 2009

quill1. If President Barack Obama is resolute on reversing Bush administration measures that have served to keep this country safe from attack for over seven years, I want him to fail.

2. If the President believes that enemy combatants captured on the field of battle are due the same Constitutional rights as American citizens, I want him to fail.

3. If the President believes that “direct diplomacy” with despotic leaders of murderous regimes is the best way to keep America strong, I want him to fail.

4. If the President is willing to trod upon one of the fundamental rights enumerated in the Declaration of Independence – namely, the right to life – with his illimitable support of abortion, I want him to fail.

5. If the President believes that taxpayer dollars should be used to fund abortions, I want him to fail.

6. If the President wishes to use taxpayer dollars to fund embryonic stem cell research, I want him to fail.

7. If the President wishes to appoint judges to the Supreme Court who view the Constitution as a document that breathes and bends with time, I want him to fail.

8. If the President wants to infringe on my Constitutional right as a law abiding American to own a firearm, I want him to fail.

9. If the President believes that government is better equipped to solve the problems of Americans than Americans themselves, I want him to fail.

10. If the President attempts to follow through on his campaign promise to fundamentally transform the United States of America, I want him to fail.

11. If the President wishes to send me a check that I didn’t earn, paid for with other people’s hard-earned tax money, and call it a tax cut, I want him to fail.

12. If the President wishes to send a so-called stimulus check to those who did not pay federal income taxes, I want him to fail.

13. If the President believes that government bailouts of private sector businesses are the way to tend to an ailing economy, I want him to fail.

14. If the President believes that the government should set pay limits on executives of companies who receive bailout money, I want him to fail.

15. If the President believes that government spending of unprecedented amounts of taxpayer money is the way to deliver the economy from recession, I want him to fail.

16. If the President believes that the planet is in danger of catostrophic ruin due to man-made global warming, and is willing to implement so-called “green” policies that will damage this country’s economy, I want him to fail.

17. If the President wishes to undertake an unparalleled “domestic infrastructure” plan that puts untrained non-professionals on the government’s payroll with the belief that this will stimulate the economy, I want him to fail.

18. If the President believes that people who fall into the highest tax brackets in this country need to pay more taxes, I want him to fail.

19. If the President believes that the military of the United States is a venue for social engineering – such as lifting the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy – I want him to fail.

20. If the President believes that healthcare is not only a right but a moral obligation of government, I want him to fail.

21. If the President believes that it is a good idea to attack those who listen to conservative talk radio as a means of fostering unity, I want him to fail.

22. If the President supports a reinstatement of the so-called Fairness Doctrine, effectively ending talk radio as we know it, I want him to fail.

23. If the President is unwilling to boldly deal with illegal immigration into the United States, and chooses to try and come up with something “comprehensive” to solve the problem, I want him to fail.

24. If the President is unwilling to take a serious look at nuclear energy as a viable and safe alternative source of energy, while wasting time focusing on wind turbines and solar paneling, I want him to fail.

25. If the President decides that he will continue his class-warfare style assault on big corporations – such as oil and pharmaceutical companies – as he did during his campaign by punishing them with higher tax rates, I want him to fail.

 

Not because he is black. Not because he is a liberal. Not because I seek some sort of vengance on the deranged, lunatic Bush-bashers of the past eight years.

I want him to fail because each and every one of these policies hurts my country.

Period.

 

There are more to be added, I’m certain.

This particular list is a breathing document.

    Comprehensive list and a very good one at that. I support it.

    Wow, Mr. Roman. You are not only an idiot, but also a traitor.

    Count me in agreement, and in noting for the benefit of “Roam Anisdum” that

    Conservatives need to become a lot more sophisticated in spotting those incremental changes that will allow Obama to successfully implement most of the stuff on your list.

    Unfortunately the odds are so heavily stacked against us, however, that it’s hard to republicans them for missing so many key things; especially with the media working so closely with the Obama administration’s wishes.

    Look how easily we were misdirected during the cabinet confirmation hearings. The media harped nonstop about Bill Richardson’s and Daschle’s tax problems just to ease the confirmation of a man who has since called our country “a nation of cowards” and has openly admitted to favoring leniency towards terrorists as our Attorney General.

    I mean think about it. What’s more objectionable to you? A commerce secretary who skipped a couple tax payments or an Attorney General who sympathizes with people who would gladly blow themselves up so long as they can take unarmed civilians with them? A health secretary who missed some property taxes or a chief law enforcement officer who continues to regard America as incorrigibly racist even after we elected a Black President?

    Yet we heard nothing about Holder’s eccentricities during the confirmation. The press chose to NOT be scandalized by Holder’s inclinations, and instead we were treated to a media circus about a couple guys who were harmless in comparison.

    Obama’s already shown a pattern of using that sort of misdirection during his campaign and during the first month of his administration. Conservatives need to be extremely wary of every seeming objection that the mainstream media may raise about Obama’s policies and instead look at the stuff that he slipping by right under our noses.

  5. […] I am REPOSTING RIGHT HERE, something I posted back on January 27, 2009 – an article that prompted more hate-mail and personal attacks than I have gotten since starting this blog – but something I firmly stand by. It is the Obama Manifesto – 25 Reasons To Support Failure: […]

    This is an absolutist agenda written like a child’s wish list for a country he is spoiled enough to believe evolved to his liking entirely without government. But my guess is your childish fantasy of presidential failure for disagreeing with any one of your checklist items would be set aside for the last president. The last administration did do exactly what No. 13 on this list condemns as reason enough to throw out the president.

    So this unconditional list of absolutes by a childish thinker, actually has a lot of ‘flip flopping’ when it comes to the last administration.

    I’m also guessing you don’t have the balls to post a well developed response to your aimless checklist – you’re content to post one liners from the other side as a token symbol that you are open to criticism.

    This strategy of fostering one sided thoughts with one sided dialogue keeps you where you want to be: In a vapid vacuum of unaccountable, incoherent, without nuance thought, screaming and yelling about how the world should work without a smidge of experience actually making it happen.

      To Michael Christenson,

      Your post is full of insults and references to ‘chilidish’, yet I see no semblance of coherence or relevance in your drivel.

      It seems to me that you do not like the author’s viewpoints, so you just start throwing insults around.

      That, sir, is childish.

        I will not go as far as to speak for Mr. Roman, but I can certainly say that I was opposed to Bush’s actions of bailouts as well. You will note that Mr. Roman made this list based around the Limbaugh assertion that he wants Obama to fail. There was nothing said about impeachment, only that he should fail and (implied) thus be disgraced and rightly ridiculed beyond “Hope” for a second term.

        You cast belittling remarks about like many pseudo-intellectuals on the left do with a gleeful ignorance of how you appear to people of rational thought. Your smugness and condescension seems to be in your mind all that is necessary to rebut a reasoned argument against Obama’s policies that are in direct conflict with the core principles of this country. Perhaps you should read Mr. Roman’s tab above “Just a tad ‘bout me” and learn how he is for limited government and not “entirely without” government as you have created a straw man to appear as though you are more than the intellectually deficient malcontent you prove yourself to be.

        Even with a boiling pot of coffee, a thesaurus, and Charles Krauthammer whispering to me from the bushes, I could not have said it any better.

        Bravo.
