If it were socialism, its critics would be unheard from, in jail, in Siberia, under heavy sedation or other psychiatric drugs… or dead.
How soon we forget.
That’s right. One has the right to disagree with healthcare reform, though it seems irrational to me to do so. But to fundamentally question Obama’s Presidency is to seek to overturn the 2008 Election just because they disagree with the outcome. That’s sour grapes, breaking the rules of majoritarian democracy. Has he succeeded in doing anything he didn’t “promise” to do in getting elected? Arguably he has gone back on several promises already. In any case, it’s too soon, 8 months into a new Administration, lacking High Crimes and Misdeeds (not that they ever get prosecuted anyway … only sex). These attacks are driven by something less political than anti-constitutional, anti-democratic, racist, deceptive (fake “grassroots” incited, recruited, planned, and bankrolled by Big Business, Big Lobbyists, etc.), libelous (probably actionable), etc. Unlike 2000 and 2004, there are no serious accusations that Barack Obama was not the choice of both a majority of the voters or intended voters last Election Day, and of the Electoral College. Attacking his very being President, then, without grounds as I have said, is attacking America, democracy, the Constitution, the rule of law, the voting majorities of Nov. 4.
Just like they did with President Clinton.
That’s right: They now believe no Democratic Party member can ever ‘legitimately’ be President. They persecuted Clinton, they kept out elected Presidents Gore and Kerry, and it seems they will persecute Obama.
Just so we’re clear what’s going on here.
And when they openly bring guns to political rallies and public meetings, they mean to threaten democracy itself.
THAT is Fascism.
And the horse you rode in on!
He tells 60 Minutes (CNN video package preceded by commercial) America should “Get over it” for him and his four GOP partisan buddies on the Supreme Court illegally giving the 2000 Presidential Election not to Al Gore who won it, but to the real Sore W. Loserman and his cronies/handlers, who have basically flushed the country and the planet down the toilet, just like they planned.
Scalia should be brought up on charges of judicial misconduct for his political and inflammatory comments in and outside the court since joining it in the ’80s; he should even be disbarred. He treats the highest judicial office in the land and one of the most important in the world like he’s some village traffic court judge, shooting off his mouth, ruling however he wishes with no real regard for the law or the Constitution. I can even say personally that he is one of the most ingracious, even impolitic, public figures I have ever had the displeasure to encounter – and I’ve known a few doozies! And he’s the biggest Fascist and Theocrat on the Court, giving Catholic lawyers and judges a bad name.
Finally, now we REALLY have to seat the Florida delegates at the Democratic Convention, and might as well the Michigan ones too for good measure. Hillary won both, so she’d gain some delegates, but since Obama didn’t run in Michigan, it should either be rerun or else let their non-Hillary delegates vote their consciences – you know 40 pct. Uncommitted was a shadow vote for Barack!
Though why the CNN correspondent says not seating Florida would hurt US in November, when Floridians clearly can expect no justice or consideration from the Repugs that doesn’t go their way, beats the heck out of me. You know those old Jews ain’t gonna vote for Hitler twice!!! (How can Al Franken* [from 7 years ago no less] and I be the only people who remember that?!!!)
What this interview does do for me is raise the specter of another high court coup d’etat … if the GOP thieves don’t do their job right at the ballot box, er, computer, of course … and their pollster / Mainstream Media backers forget to fudge the exit polls again. Scalia hasn’t quite retired yet….
(*–BTW he needs your help!)
