I understand and sympathize with the many, many Americans who either believe that Obama is a Usurper or have strong doubts about the boy’s eligibility to be POTUS. I do with, however, that they had a better understanding of problem solving.
First You Must Understand The Problem
To solve for any problem – and the Obama Question needs a solution post haste – it is first necessary to understand what the problem is.
America’s problem is not – or, more accurately, no longer – where Obama was born; it’s where he’s dossed down now!
One thing for all to remember about Obama is that judging by his words, deeds, and choice of those he surrounds himself with, is that he’s not American, not in his heart and soul. Or, at the very least, that is how he and his coterie have crafted his public image.
It may seem to be an odd course of action for someone who previously claimed to not accept partisan divisions and to hope for a unified America, but only if one was foolish and naive enough to believe anything that Obama says about his beliefs and goals.
One would also have to set aside the basic rules of realpolitik to find Obama’s “otherness,” real or portrayed with great skill, to be surprising. Divisiveness is far more effective as a political tactic than is “unifying” and Obama has always diligently and dutifully followed the rules of realpolitik.
One has to remember that this “otherness” of Obama is exactly what America’s domestic enemies, the oikophobic Liberals, love about him. It also lets them paint the American people as racist and xenophobic, which feeds their own preconceptions of America as a place of evil that must be brought low.
It’s fairly obvious that the upcoming 2012 elections are going to be a base vs. base war with, as happened in 2008, the “moderates” and “independents” split roughly down the middle. This means that Obama’s “otherness” is a useful political coin, but one that works to galvanize friend and enemy alike.
The question remains though of how long with the house that Obama’s Otherness divided continue to stand…
Obama’s 2012 Campaign T-Shirt – Made in the USA (If Strong of Stomach, Click to Enlarge)
Yes, for a mere $25 functionally anonymous donation Obama’s supporters across the globe can purchase this shirt from Obama’s campaign website. For $15, they can get a coffee mug. Both shirt and mug feature the image of Obama’s birth certificate.
Americans have to remember that, to Obama, everything is about the election campaign; that’s his sole comfort zone. Almost anything he or his coterie due is founded upon that simple truism.
Obama and his campaigners know that Obama’s base has weakened since he took office. They also know that it’s far easier to get their supporters fired up to fight against the American people than to get the majority of them to fight for Obama – and they don’t have President Bush to blame and malign anymore.
On the brighter side, such a t-shirt would be considered a “fixed distinctive marking, visible from a distance” and, hence, a small step towards honesty.
No doubts remain. Obama’s long belated release of his birth certificate was solely about Alinsky-esque election politics, specifically the politics of pandering, provocation, and division.
Keep your eyes open. Travel light but load heavy, and always put another round in the enemy after they’re down. 😉
Evidently, the SEAL team “assaulters” didn’t have the good sense to attach fake electrodes to dead Osama’s genitals, or put a dog collar around his putrid neck. Because were that the case, no force on earth could keep the photos from being splashed all over the internet.
