A few random observations of the week so far

In response to the subway bombings in Moscow the White House issued a statement on Monday in which the president said the American people stand united with the people of Russia in opposition to violent extremism and “heinous” terrorist attacks. Consequently,  the DHS, in the persona of the FBI, arrested nine Christians in Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan.

In a move reminiscent of Hilary Clinton’s “vast, right-wing conspiracy,” President Barack Obama says he believes the Tea Party is built around a “core group” of people who question whether he is a U.S. citizen. Obama said he feels “there’s still going to be a group at their core that question my legitimacy.” Now, I’m not a law professor or Harvard graduate, deo gratias, but it doesn’t take a genius to point out the obvious. Show us the birth certificate you so adamantly refuse to release. One can’t hide all one’s records from scrutiny and then complain that there are some who question one’s legitimacy.

There has been a lot of hand-wringing over the individual mandate portion of Obamacare. The left’s spin on this is that Bush and McCain, et al, supported the same sort of mandate, so there’s no room for complaint by the people opposed to Obamacare. The fact that Bush was wrong doesn’t prevent pointing out that Obama is wrong, as well. As my mother always said, two wrongs don’t make a right. And the 55 per cent of voters who oppose Obamacare would agree with her.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52% of U.S. voters believe the average member of the Tea Party movement has a better understanding of the issues facing America today than the average member of Congress. Only 30% believe that those in Congress have a better understanding of the key issues facing the nation. And yet there is an almost daily media attack on the Tea Partiers as rednecks and racists.

I find it interesting that liberals are doing everything in their power to disenfranchise and marginalize the American citizen. They claim to be for empowerment, and the right of the people to choose their own destiny, until, of course, it clashes with what they want. Obama spent the better part of a year suggesting we were too stupid to understand Obamacare. As did Pelosi, Reid, Hastings, et al. Not surprisingly, only eleven per cent of voters hold a favorable view of congress. And the anointed one ain’t doing so well, either.
