Frightening words from the potential President

Below (thanks to Laura Hollis) are proofs positive of the danger posed by an Obama Presidency.

But Obama says:  “The Constitution is a flawed document.”


The President appoints U.S. Supreme Court justices, who serve for life once confirmed by the U.S. Senate. 


But Obama’s view of the Supreme Court
“[It] never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth … It
didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by
the founding fathers in the Constitution.”


The reason Justice is represented in American with scales and a
blindfold is because judges are supposed to dispense justice without
regard to who is before them. 


But here’s Obama’s view of “blind” justice:
“We need somebody who's got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what
it's like to be a young teenage mom, the empathy to understand what
it's like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old--and
that's the criterion by which I'll be selecting my judges.”


The President’s energy policy should benefit users and providers of energy.


So let’s listen to Obama’s views of energy policy: “[U]nder my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”  And “If
somebody wants to build a coal power plant they can, it's just that it
will bankrupt them because they are going to be charged a huge sum for
all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted
.”


The President should extol the American promises of protection of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  Here’s Obama’s view of the value of human life:  “That’s above my pay grade.”


The American economic system rewarding individual initiative has
created more prosperity for more people than any other system in human
history.  We now know that higher taxes crush new business and business
growth, and reduce jobs.


Obama’s (now infamous) view of taxation?  “Spread the wealth.” 


And perhaps less well-known, in an interview with ABC News,
anchor Charlie Gibson asked, “[I]n each instance, when the rate
dropped, revenues from the tax increased; the government took in more
money. And in the 1980s, when the tax was increased to 28 percent, the
revenues went down.  So why raise it at all, especially given the fact
that 100 million people in this country own stock and would be
affected? “


Here’s what  Obama says:  “Well, Charlie, what I've said is that I would look at raising the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness.”


And what about Obama’s view of the First Amendment?  Threats of criminal libel prosecutions, Justice Department intimidation, and no promise to veto the “Fairness Doctrine” if his compatriots in Congress pass it.


The President’s most significant responsibility is the safety of the American people.


So what is Obama’s view of Iran, a country currently building
nuclear reactors?  “Iran … [is] tiny … [it doesn’t] pose a serious
threat to us.  Iran, they spend 1/100th of what we spend on the
military. If Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they
wouldn't stand a chance.”


Last, but not least, my personal favorite.  A quote not from Barack
Obama, but his wife, Michelle, when asked about her husband running for
President.


Michelle Obama’s views about her husband running for President?  “It’s way too soon.  He hasn’t done anything yet.”
