“Two men enter and only one man leaves” as Tina Turner said in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. That is Obama’s governing philosophy in a nut shell. Make no mistake, his goal is to totally destroy any opposition. On his target list is the Republican Party, Fox News and talk radio. Obama wants to create a national version of the Chicago machine and a One Party state.
Few are the men and women in American public life who haven’t heard Mr. Dooley’s famous aphorism: “Politics ain’t beanbag.” John Boehner, currently serving out his community service as speaker of the House, appears to have been meditating on Mr. Dooley’s cautionary wisdom. At the Ripon Society last week he said the Obama administration was trying “to annihilate the Republican Party.”
Better late than never, Speaker Boehner now sees that Barack Obama’s notion of political competition is Mad Max inside the Thunderdome: “Two men enter, one man leaves.”
After the inaugural speech, Obama communications director Dan Pfeiffer said that Democrats don’t have “an opposition party worthy of the opportunity.” Even among the president’s supporters, one is hard put now to find anyone who doesn’t recognize that Mr. Obama’s original appeal to hope and change has given way to search and destroy.
Conventional wisdom holds that these unorthodox tactics are a mistake, that he’s going to need GOP support on immigration and such. And by now it’s conventional wisdom that when our smiling president transforms into Mr. Hyde he is merely channeling Saul Alinsky, deploying the tactics of community-organizing campaigns, the only operational world he knew before this.
The real pedigree, though, is a lot heavier than community organizing in Chicago.
Obama is one of the most ruthless politicians we have seen in politics. He has cemented a nearly invincible electoral machine that can win elections despite bad economic conditions. The machine, also known as Organizing for America, has made the Republicans the bad guys in the image of the public and now they are on the verge of irrelevancy.
The United States is now a defacto Socialist dictatorship. The machine Obama assembled will do whatever is needed to hold onto power. The god-king may not be on the ballot in 2016 but Organizing for America will still be there and whoever the Democrat nominee is will have the machine at their disposal.
The Chicago way has gone national and we are on the verge of a one party state.
