Character Assassinations, the Progressives “Wag the Dog”

BY JEFF CHURCHILL – Over the past few weeks, we as a Nation have witnessed the Progressive agenda expand; using their favorite comrade Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”

As President Obama’s poll numbers continue to free fall and the GOP candidates accumulate more steam with the 2012 Presidential elections fast approaching, the Obama Nation can’t beat the candidates running within the GOP machine; because, of Obama’s failed policies and his dismal economic recovery.   So, are they using character assassinations to justify their means no matter how true it may not be?


Ridiculing the GOP candidates seems to be the only road Obama is capable of taking, instead of attempting to convince the electorate that four more years of the same failed policies will correct the course of our rudderless ship; Alinsky rule #5, “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.  It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule.  Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”

Does this sound a bit familiar?

The latest series of attacks have been focused on Herman Cain, who in reality is Obama’s biggest threat.

A few weeks ago Mr. Cain was at the top of the heap in the presidential polls and Obama’s regime realized they can’t beat Mr. Cain.   Cain is the non-status quo candidate.   Cain is a successful business executive who has a reputation of turning unsuccessful companies into prosperous business machines.  Cain’s economic philosophies to turn our Country around are exemplary.  Cain is living proof of a “rags to riches” story.  Cain is one of two candidates who are favored by the millions of TEA Party members from across the Nation.  Cain also has a magnetizing charisma with the American people.  And, this great American just happens to be black.

So, this is quite the “Wag the Dog” for the Obama Nation.  For those of you who don’t know the about the phrase, here it is: “to purposely divert attention from what would otherwise be of greater importance, to something else of lesser significance.  By doing so, the lesser-significant events is catapulted into the limelight, drowning proper attention to what was originally the more important issue.”

President Obama and his Administration have accumulated more debt in the last three years than any other President since the history of the United States began.  This is quite the feat for a candidate who in reality was completely unknown prior to 2007; and quite frankly still is today.  We still haven’t had the opportunity to view his vastly alleged college transcripts.  He or his keepers have locked and sealed them, for reasons unknown at this time.

Obama’s rudderless leadership capabilities have, on all accounts, exacerbated this “Great Recession.” Since taking office, Obama has killed thousands of jobs in the Gulf of Mexico by suspending all drilling permits; causing us to be even more dependent on foreign oil, costing tax payers over $500 Billion annually.  And to rub salt in the wound Obama during a speech back in March 2011, while sunbathing in Brazil and dancing in the streets of Rio, stated to their Countries Leaders we want to be your best customer while promising $2 Billion in financial aid to Petrobras Oil Company allowing them to expand their deep water drilling, costing United States Rig Workers $330 million per month in loss of wages during the ongoing drilling moratorium.

And of course we have all the “Green Energy Jobs” Obama promised.  One for instance, Solyndra, after receiving $535 Million of our tax dollar loan guarantees filed for bankruptcy on September 6, 2011, and 1,100 lose their jobs; how’s that for cronyism; and there’s many more.

In a Heritage Foundation report dated September 22, 2011, “Four Green Job Realities” Thomas Pyle, president of the institute for Energy Research, writes in U.S. News, was quoted, “The Presidents own Council of Economic Advisors admitted recently that only 225.000 clean energy jobs were either created or saved and cost the tax payer $355,000 per job (assuming a low-ball estimate that $80 billion in economic stimulus went towards green jobs).”

On November 10, 2011, Obama killed 10’s of thousands of jobs when he put the TransCanada Corporation’s “Keystone XL oil pipeline” on the back burner bowing to the environmentalists votes until after the 2012 Presidential Elections.

Meanwhile, the Obama team has spent over $2,000,000,000,000, that’s $2 Trillion, to stimulate our economy and what do we get a continuing stagnating 9.1% unemployment; however, in reality it’s around 20%, you know how the Department of Labor loves to cook the books.

Oh, did you ever recall Obama signing a federal budget or submitting one?  Heck no.  Obama has submitted a couple recently beginning in 2011, but that was after the Republican’s took control of the House of Representatives; however he took the reins in 2009?  The first budget Obama submitted was shot down, with the Republican’s version, called “the Ryan Plan” which was endorsed by the House of Representatives back in April 2011; except the democratically controlled Senate killed it.  And, the Senate, with the majority being Democrat, shot down Obama’s latest budget 0-97.  However, Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, refuses to submit a Senate’s version for a vote, because he doesn’t want his contemporaries subjected to voter’s remission in 2012!

And, we can’t forget the so called “Super Committee,” that was devised because both Houses and Obama’s lack of leadership came up with a plan that was doomed to fail from the beginning when our National Debt was reaching its limit.  So, what did this achieve?  Well, we have leaped over the National Debt which is now over $15 Trillion buckaroos.

So, what does the Progressive machine do?   They use the old and tiresome character smear campaigns.  President Obama is without a doubt the worst President in the history of the United States of America.

Because of his ineptness, 30 million American’s are unemployed, underemployed, or quite frankly are out of the job market.

Meanwhile, the hypocritical Obama is either hobnobbing with the upper 1% political elite at Martha’s Vineyard enjoying the Polo games, playing golf or off on another lavish vacation on our dime; completely ignoring our current economic problems the American People are experiencing today!

So, is this current character assassination attack a mere “Wag the Dog?” you bet it is.

That’s my opinion and I’m entitled to it.
