Republicans’ Stupid 2012 Election Strategy


by Lawrence Sellin, ©2011

Why won't the Republicans address the elephant in the room named Barack Hussein Obama?

(Oct. 1, 2011) — By now most Americans should realize that Barack Obama is an empty suit, an individual totally unprepared for the responsibilities of the Presidency, but shaped and directed by others to undermine traditional American values, disrupt the economy and instigate class and racial conflict, all in order to make the United States vulnerable to control by international ideologies.

Obama’s philosophy and behavior are consistent with the aims of Marxists like Bill Ayers, “open society” financial predators like George Soros and anti-democratic movements like Islamic fundamentalism. Their common aim is to reduce American power and influence, which now inhibit their global aspirations.

The forces backing Obama have successfully exploited American politicians’ greed and lust for power, their susceptibility to be intimidated by political correctness and their overall lack of integrity and intestinal fortitude.

They have also cleverly used America’s own legal system to advance their aims at the expense of our liberty and security.

The United States now has an illegal President, who violates the Constitution and openly flouts the rule of law by forging his birth documents and Selective Service registration and uses a Social Security number not issued to him.

Americans understand that the Democrats are hopelessly corrupt and many are accomplices in Obama’s crimes.

They do not understand, however, why the Republicans remain silent as the Obama Administration continues to drive the country towards the precipice.

There are two reasons: (1) some Republicans facilitated Obama’s illegal nomination for the Presidency and, subsequently, have been complicit in the cover-up and (2) ignoring Obama’s crimes is part of the Republican 2012 campaign strategy.

It is obvious that if Obama is exposed, large numbers of the Republican leadership will be subject to prosecution and imprisonment, at a minimum, for Misprision of Felony.

Secondly, the Republicans now view Obama to be much more vulnerable to defeat than, for example, Hillary Clinton. So, they want to keep Obama in the game and the Republican leadership is quite willing to ignore the Constitution and hide Obama’s crimes to do so.

The Republicans have shown themselves to be as corrupt as the Democrats, choosing the pursuit of power over principle and political expediency over preserving the Constitution.

The Republicans are willing to promote disregard for the Constitution and endorse permanent corruption in order to win an election.

Such an attitude is both cynical and depraved.

The great Republican President, Theodore Roosevelt said.

“We cannot afford to differ on the question of honesty if we expect our republic permanently to endure. Honesty is not so much a credit as an absolute prerequisite to efficient service to the public. Unless a man is honest, we have no right to keep him in public life; it matters not how brilliant his capacity.”

The second aspect of their strategy is simply absurd.

As I wrote above, the Republican leadership assumes that if they ignore Obama’s Constitutionally illegal Presidency and cover up his crimes, that will prevent a stronger Democrat from replacing Obama on the Presidential ticket.

In war, a smart military leader never assumes that the enemy will act the way he wishes, but plans for the unexpected.

The Democrats may decide that it is in their interest to withdraw Obama as their 2012 Presidential candidate.

In that case, the Republican Party sacrifices its honor for nothing and exposes itself to future criticism for complicity in the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people.

It is not only a dishonest strategy; it is just plain stupid.

    Cranial, you are right – they ALL need to be removed from office. They are either co-conspirators or just too dumb to get the lawful job done. We are without lawful representation in the federal government.

    I sent an e-mail to my representative Chris Gibson (R) who defeated a democrat in his first election. Gibson is a retired Colonel in the US Army and has a PhD in Government from Cornell. The e-mail expressed my concerns about the eligibility for office of the president for the individual currently holding that position. I was amazed to get a response from Mr. Gibson indicating simply, that he felt our current president was eligible to hold the office. Stuck on stupid and taking part in the destruction of our constitution! They all need to be removed from office!

    Congress has been told by their leadership that Obama’s eligibility will not be discussed by them. Sounds like leadership trying to stay out of jail, and Congressional members that mostly fear disobeying their leadership.

    I called a few day’s ago to Lieberman’s office and received this response from the staff person when I tried to talk about Obama’s ineligibility and, specifically, his SS number E-verify failure. To paraphase, he stated, “everything has been debunked and we are not talking about any of this, we have moved on”. A few weeks earlier I got a very similar response from the office of Dem. Senator Mark Pryor from the female staffer I talked with.

    The Republican offices I have recently called have listened courteously to what I had to say, and one office has called me for additional information on the SS number E-verify failure..

    There does seem to be a bit of a change in that all offices no longer seem to be using the same talking points.

    That’s progress, I hope.

    Thank you, Colonel, for telling it like it is. I only wish we had some in the Republican party who were willing to stand up and tell the truth. We, the people, will try to rectify this in November 2012. At that time, it is my great desire to see all incumbents replaced with honest men/women who love the USA more than they love “feeding at the public trough”

    The Colonel has hit one out of the park once again. This is the Republican’s election to lose and it appears they are doing everything they can to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory. If they don’t get their act together soon November 6, 2012 will just be a wasted day. I can only hope that the GOP doesn’t prove my theory that all the politcians have perfected is elevating lying cheating and stealing to an art form no matter what politcal party. Pehaps 535+ pink slips are in order.

    You know, so many of the politicians (regardless of stripe) and the regime-stream media are so invested in denial about Obama-fraud’s naked ineligibility, that I think it will be the stolen social security number, his murderous gunrunner treason, the Chicago real estate tax fraud, or some other crime that will be the lever that first starts Obama on his inevitable topple.

    For the sake of fear-of-punishment putting a “sense of duty” firmly back into the minds of the rest of the dishonorable, spineless, self-serving politicians we’ve inflicted ourselves with, I hope Obama-fraud receives no pardon and is made to bear the full and just sentence his many crimes deserve, no matter where that may lead (up to and including the death penalty if his treasonous actions and the rule of law support it).

    As Jefferson famously said, “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

    PS: What we really need are term limits for all national politicians and perhaps returning to Senators being selected by the states. In the mean time, I am applying that goal to my own personal voting selections – always vote against a multi-term incumbent with the only exception being those who have a tract record of strictly supporting the Constitution (including the eligibility clause).
