Barack & Hard Place

, Richard Thompson, Leave a comment

Four years ago Barack Obama ran with the campaign slogan “change we can believe in.” Now his reelection plan is to move “forward” with that change. Somewhere along the way the President must have forgotten to stop and check with the American people, because the majority are clearly not on board with the way this country is headed.

“Obama is seriously on a course to destroy America as we know it”, David Limbaugh said at the weekly Bloggers Briefing at the Heritage Foundation on Tuesday, July 10. “He’s said he wants to fundamentally change America. You don’t fundamentally change something that you love.”

Limbaugh visited the Heritage Foundation to discuss his new book The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama’s War on the Republic, which depicts President Obama as a leftist ideologue who is opposed to any kind of constructive reform.

“He doesn’t believe in equality of opportunity. He believes in equality of outcome or equalizing outcome. He doesn’t believe in the market. He doesn’t believe in the private sector,” said Limbaugh. This Keynesian way of thinking is harmful to America, according to Limbaugh, because it leads to fiscal and economic instability as well as the destruction of the private sector as we know it.

Limbaugh went on to say that he was uncertain of President Obama’s motives, positing that the President either wants to create a utopian America and is going about it the wrong way or has an extreme hatred for America and wants to see it fall. Limbaugh made it very clear that President Obama, regardless of intent, is putting policies in place that are detrimental for this country.

“His political ideology demands that he expand the dependency. He doesn’t think that’s destroying the country, [but] we know that’s destroying the country,” Limbaugh said.
