It is a sad day when government designates the people of the nation as enemies of the State. Doing such a thing is one of the first steps to tyranny and dictatorship. It is a move that proves beyond any doubt that government no longer represents the people but is now designed to oppress the people. It is a sure sign that government no longer governs but rules over the masses.
“Forget the birther theory that Obama was born in Kenya. Chris Hayes wants you to believe the president was born on Krypton.
“How else to explain his over-the-top gushing for Dear Leader during an appearance on MSNBC colleague Rachel Maddow’s show on Thursday (video after page break) –
“There’s a tendency in commentary in politics to be what we would call in economics pro-cyclical, which is that when the president is doing poorly everyone rushes to talk about how he’s terrible and listless and has no leadership qualities and the Ron Suskind book comes out saying the same and everyone piles on and then you forget, you get this weird induced amnesia, this is an extremely able, deft, confident, exceptional politician. (laughs)
“And, and what happens is the cycle sort of gets on this internal logic, his approval ratings are down, the economy is bad. And everyone is like, well what happened to? You know, he’s right there. I mean, that is a very good, able, amazingly powerful politician and I think in some ways he has been not using his superpowers (laughs) for lot of his time in office. I think as, I don’t know why frankly, I’m not inside the president’s head.

“When Chicago Tribune columnist Steve Chapman wrote for last Sunday’s paper that Barack Obama “might do his party a big favor” and step aside and take the blame so “someone less reviled could replace him at the top of the ticket,” the column went viral on the Drudge Report. It was also cited by Jay Leno in a monologue on NBC.
“But the Tribune seemed huffy that anyone would think this opinon was an official nod of the Chicago Tribune, the president’s hometown paper. That might carry more weight, since the Tribune aggressively smoothed out Obama’s path to the Senate in 2004 by suing to acquire his opponents’ divorce papers and reporting the tabloidish parts. Obama walked over former Democratic front-runner Blair Hull and Republican Jack Ryan dropped out, leaving as his Republican general-election opponent the carpet-bagging Alan Keyes. James Janega reported:
“Like other columnists who appear on our Commentary pages, Steve presented his own particular point of view,” Tribune Editor Gerould Kern said Thursday. “We think Steve is an accomplished, insightful and thought-provoking columnist.”
“But the voice of the Chicago Tribune as an institution and our positions on important public issues are embodied in our editorials that appear on the Editorial Page opposite the Commentary Page.”
“The Chicago Tribune endorsed Barack Obama in 2008. Since then, we have supported a number of his actions and opposed or criticized others.”
“As is our customary practice,” Kern added, “the Tribune will make endorsements in the presidential race in 2012.”
“That’s next year.”
