0bama still in training to become Presidential.

Yes, it is true. The President of the U.S.A. recently made a joke about abusing his power as President by utilizing the I.R.S. to punish people, to include the Chairman of the Republican National Committee. Here's the link. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124260113149028331.html I say that given President 0bama has appointed tax cheats to his own administration, his joking about using the I.R.S. to harass people is indicative not only of hypocrisy but also of a latent desire to be a dictator. What do you say?

I agree. It is further indicative 0bozo also does not appreciate and respect his office. People in public service are usually held to a higher standard than regular folks... and as such they have to avoid even the appearance of wrongdoing... and this statement of his does exactly the opposite. He has no respect for the law and it shows.

Don't you think the term 0bozo is just a little too disrespectful and unfair? You are making fun of the name of a mighty fine clown by making his name sound like 0bama's!

Well, I could go back to 0bamunist I guess... 0bozo is much faster to type and not as controversial as calling the whole DC bunch the Little Rascals.

In my opinion the USA will ultimately pay dearly for the foolishness of voting in a president not for his experience or proven abilities but because they "liked" him. He won a popularity contest NOT the right to govern our country.

You are right, for sure. To get an idea of what we might face think in terms of the Argentinian financial crisis of about 2001. What is probably coming will not be pleasant, but most will survive it and we probably will not have armed rebellion, only increased lawlessness and criminal activity. BTW: The mess in Argentina was caused by the government having too much debt and banks failing. Sound familiar?

Yes indeed it does sound very familiar.

What do you mean "latent" desire? As I pointed out during the campaign, Obama's speeches and policies bore a striking resemblence to Adolph Hitler's speeches when he was first running for office. And, we all know how Adolph turned out. Why should we believe Obama will be any different?

It makes me very happy to read your words. So far, whenever I try to make the same point, it gets totally misunderstood. At least someone else views 0bama as a disastor waiting to happen. Thanks, for chipping in with your 2 cents.

I've been saying it since before the dem primaries, not only 0bama's behavior but his fanatical fans are also reminiscent of Hitler and the nazis. That forced "volunteering" for children also smells a lot like the Hitler Youth.

Both Obama and Hitler have/had fanatical followers. Both are/were charismatic individuals who took advantage of a recession to make big promises in order to get into office. We do have a few more safeguards in place than Germany did in Hitler's time; but, with the right backing and support Obama could just ignore those safeguards and take over the way Hitler did. Right now, it looks like history is getting ready to repeat itself.

I read about his "joke" and agree that it';s not a good idea to talk about using the IRS as a weapon - especially when you've ALREADY done so (The 95% retroactive tax on AIG bonuses despite the fact that they only got those bonuses because the 0bama administration forced language into the bailout that PRESERVED those bonuses and only when the people found out and got pissed did they decide to use the IRS illegally to take the money back)!

Darn good point. It had slipped my mind about the AIG bonuses.

But wait, there's MORE! See the link below to discover how the President made more irresponsible comments and how it has hurt the economy of a state! http://www.foxnews.com/politics/elections/2009/05/19/nevada-governer-slams-obamas-refusal-meet/

Milkmaid, You have misunderstood AngryKittyMSV's point. She is mentioning things 0bama talked about, advocated, and hinted at in addition to what he actually did. For example, true, there never was that 95% tax, but it was threatened. I remember it. Yes, it is also true that President Bush was in favor of things harmful to this nation, too, just like 0bama. Bush and 0bama are/were bad Presidents overall. One can debate only who was worse.

Thanks, but it only has two measly posts. Wanna be a contributor? I'm hoping for it to become a serious and continuous protest site for all the attacks on us and our Constitution by many people, not just me.

I'd be honored to write something once in awhile for your blog. When I write seriously, I like to do analysis. Got any numbers you want crunched?

Well, he's got to get the money to pay for his budget somewhere, so I guess he will just set the dogs, I mean the IRS, on the hard-working taxpayers. But even if he took 100% of the income of everyone making over $100,000, he could never even come close to reducing the deficit he is accumulating. Obama has a vision and he's going to do whatever it takes to put it into place. Unfortunately, since it is a vision that isn't in line with the Constitution, he will be attempting to set that aside. Yes, once he has eroded our rights (with our consent) he will be a dictator. The American people need to stand up for the Constitution before it is too late.

You are right that 0bama does this with our consent. The U.S.A. elected him President. This still amazes me at how much the electorate's intelligence has deterioted in my life time.

You might be interested in a poll that revealed when Obama says he is "investing" in America that 78% of Americans know he means he is "spending" their money. Not only that, but 71% of Americans polled said they wanted less government. So, it's possible that faced with the reality of the situation, instead of all the election hyperbole and far-flung dreams, that Americans are finally returning to common sense. I just fear it may be too late.

It is never too late. 2010 elections are coming. If we throw some of the bums out at the ballot box with our votes, 0bama will get the message.

Well Obama is learning how to become a South American tyrant. One of these days we will start referring to Obama as Generalisimo Obama. Just another reason to do away with the IRS. If the federal government did not have this power then Obama could not abuse this power. That would be like telling little Johnny not to cheat but butting the answer key right in front of him.
