Republicans’ Stupid 2012 Election Strategy

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.
