THE REJECTS ARE INJECTING
By Helen L. Burleson, Doctor of Public Administration
The rejects are coming out of the woodwork and are injecting themselves into every aspect of President Obama’s policies, principles and positions in order to prevent his bringing us out of the abyss into which the past administration dumped us.
Reject John McCain, who is still bitter over losing his bid to ascend to the Presidency, whose military expertise was going to bring Osama bin Laden to justice because he knew how to get him and he was going to get him, now has become a logistics expert in fighting a war started by President George W. Bush. As a war hero who was in the senate at the time the decisions were made to go into Iraq and Afghanistan, he failed to contribute his expertise to prevent the declaration of an unjust, ill founded, undeclared war.
Let’s go to the source for edification.
“According to the U.S. Constitution, only Congress has the power to declare war on another sovereign nation.
According to Article I , Section 8: "The Congress shall have Power ... To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water; To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years; To provide and maintain a Navy; To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces; To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions; To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress ...".
The US President, however, has the power to wage war.
Reject Newt Gingrich, former speaker of the house, created a "Contract with America," a document telling voters what a Republican-led Congress would look like under his leadership.
After eight years of a Republican Administration, we see what a disastrous outcome that has become. Not since “The Great Depression” has America faced a total collapse of the economy, the failure of our education system, medical care run by insurance companies to the detriment of the populace and to the benefit of the insurance companies, an infrastructure that is deteriorating, a military sent off to war ill-equipped for the mission, and a government run rampant without the proper oversight, regulation and checks and balances that government must provide.
Reject Sarah Palin, half term governor of the State of Alaska, who can barely articulate an entire sentence, has joined with the Tea Party radicals to attempt to undermine the credibility of President Obama. She didn’t have the brains or the dedication to fulfill her term and obligations to the State of Alaska, now she has the temerity to speak on issues that affect the whole country by injecting herself into and endorsing candidates throughout the country.
Alas, we come to Reject Fred Thompson, Cclass actor, who didn’t have enough courage and confidence to stay in the race for presidency to the end now is advising us on getting reverse mortgages and negatively spinning President Obama’s presidency. He couldn’t sell himself to the American public to take him seriously to become the leader of the free world so now he is hawking whatever entity will pay him as if he’s selling himself to the highest bidder.
This motley bunch of sycophants has a singular purpose to destroy the presidency of President Barack Obama. So strident and stringent in their caustic language that they are making themselves look like the malcontents that they are. Losers all; they will not be winners because they don’t have a universally appealing approach to life or politics. As Tea Party advocates, they have aligned themselves with the fringe element of society. They have gone so far to the right that they appear to be un-American and unpatriotic. It is obvious that they are not looking out for the common weal. To destroy the presidency of President Obama is to destroy America. If we, as patriotic Americans believe in the philosophy in the form of a motto on our seal, “e pluribus unum” which means out of many, one, then we will succeed. How can we destroy one of us without destroying all of us? This evil cabal is so hell bent on destruction that whatever powers of reasoning they may have had, they have lost. They have lost sight of what it means to be a loyal citizen of America. Leaving jingoism aside, we do have a motto and a creed to live by.
Now we have a new contract with America. Ours is shift to (D) Democrat to drive forward and reject (R) Republican to go in reverse and return to the failed Bush policies. This is our motto, our slogan, our contract, and it is what will keep us on the path to moving (DRIVING) our country forward. We REJECTED you before and we REJECT you again so INJECTING yourself into our forward movement will not deter us. We are resolute! We are determined! We continue to support the CHANGE we voted for; and, it is our HOPE that you will just crawl back into your holes and hibernate.
CALLING DEMOCRATS TO BATTLE!
