Conservatives who have been wondering how Obama survived the 2012 election now have fuel for the common complaint that he stole the election by cheating.
And no, I’m not talking about the vote rigging in precincts where he had more votes than voters.
Nor am I talking about petitions where signature gatherers illegally forged names in order for Obama to qualify for a state primary ballot.
I’m also not talking about Obama’s failure to vote on much legislation when he was an Illinois state senator, nor on his ability to produce any meaningful legislation for the three weeks he acted as a United States Senator from Illinois before announcing he was going to be the best president of the United States ever.
And even though, he became U.S. Senator by getting a crony to open up sealed divorce records, we’re not going to talk about that.
We won’t suggest here that that was cheating.
Don’t get me started on his failure to produce his Accidental College application, which may or may not claim that Obama claimed he was foreign national to get preferred treatment.
Because I don’t want to go there; that’s not what this article is about.
I also don’t want to talk about how Obama, as president, goosed employment and GDP figures in the third quarter of 2012 to artificially inflate those numbers with government spending.
Or how he got defense contractors to lay off the laying-off of federal defense workers until after the election in key states like Ohio.
This article will also not delve into the media coddling that Obama’s come to expect; how they helped him steal the primary election in ’08 from the Man-Who-Won’t-Be-President-Now-That-She-Screwed-Up-And-Took-The-Fall-As-Secretary-of-State; how Obama’s past, including his associations with real-live racists and terrorists, would never be tolerated in another candidate; or how the bootlickers in the media, who have come to despise him, let themselves be used like they were dating Jodi Arias- and liking it.
We also won’t be talking about how the Democrats delayed the implementation of Obamacare until AFTER the 2012 presidential election, because they rushed through the “healthcare reform” process in the first place, as they knew their plan wouldn’t work to reduce insurance rates, healthcare costs or the deficit- all of which were selling points for a skeptical public.
To the contrary, Obamacare was designed to do one thing and one thing only: give a target demographic another “free” thing that Democrats could use to drive those voters to the polls.
Yes, yes; that’s cheating too, but we don’t want to talk about that right now.
We also won’t talk about how the GOP self-destructed, nominating the one guy who brought nothing original, daring or even smart to the election; a candidate so lame that the GOP now feels the need to ideologically douche itself by raising taxes, instituting amnesty and considering other portions of the liberal agenda.
OK, running against a Dole, a Bush, a McCain or a Romney really isn’t cheating, but it ought to be.
So once again, we won’t talk about that either.
No, instead we want to focus on the real cheating.
Instead we want to focus on the heartbeat stuff; the stuff of memories not made; of lives not lived.
Obama survived the 2012 presidential election because he told the American people that he kept them safe from terror; that he had Al Qaida on the run; that he was fighting America’s battles smarter than before.
And to prove the point, when things got really tough, he cheated with other peoples’ lives in order to avoid defeat.
He let four Americans die, rather than admit the truth. And that truth is this: That in war, as Winston Churchill said, “there is only one thing certain… that it is full of disappointments and also of mistakes.”
Obama could have admitted a mistake and walked away with dignity- he might have even won still.
But instead, he cheated.
I wonder where he got the idea he could do that?
