Republicans Declare War on Obama!
Less than 24 hours after being Inaugurated, the Republican Party — from self-proclaimed “moderates” like Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania to the Leader of the Idiocracy (Rush Limbaugh) — made clear their determination to buck the 82% of America that approve of Obama and want him to succeed.
Specter was the first to lay down the gauntlet. In a move unprecedented in American history, Specter referenced an obscure committee rule to delay one week a hearing on the nomination of Judge Eric Holder for Attorney General. The real concern of Republicans: that Holder would prosecute ex-Bush officials for their flagrant breaches of the U.S. Constitution.
Meanwhile, Rush Limbaugh made clear his determination that Government of the People, by the People, and for the People must fail, lest Obama’s success be proof that Government can actually be a force for goods. “I hope he fails,” said the rotund drug addict revered by the few unthinking dittoheads remaining in America.
Those of you who support the President need to let Republicans know NOW that their attempts to obstruct the Will of the American People will not be looked at kindly. You can start by calling Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter’s office and tell him how angry you are that he has declared War on Obama. Specter has said he supports Holder. So why the hold-up? Because Republicans want to make sure that the lawlessness, shredding of the Constitution, and war crimes of their friends in the Bush Administration are never prosecuted. They want to ensure their unqualified cronies, illegally chosen for political reasons for their demonstrated loyalty to the President over and above the Constitution, remain in power to subvert the will of President Obama and the American People. If Republicans have their way, it could weaken Holder and set a fine precedent for the invulnerability of future American tyranny. Let’s begin protests outside Specter’s office and demonstrations across Pennsylvania. Republicans may hate the Constitution. But We the People believe it is We, not They, who are in Charge.
