President Obama began his second term by accidentally giving a campaign speech instead of an inaugural address. He seemed to be hinting, if not actually saying, that the problems in America are caused by “Alan” and if he will just shut up, open his wallet and jump on The Freedom Express things will be much better.
The Biggest Problem Facing America
The President exposed his true Progressive-Kennedy wing of the Democratic Party bonafides when he basically said that none of us can be truly free until two men can marry. He said, “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.” This thought did not spring from Washington, Madison, Jefferson, or Lincoln, but rather from Garth Brooks who said, “When we’re free to love anyone we choose…then we shall be free”.
This was the President’s outreach to those who disagree with him: “We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate.” I will translate this for you: “Hush. You lost the election. Na Na Na Na”. In the President’s Ivy League Professor Lounge World only conservatives (Republicans) are absolutists and name-callers. You wonder where he was when his former deputy press secretary produced a commercial that held Mitt Romney responsible for the death of a woman.
Speaking about spectacle, the day after the Inaugural, Future President Secretary of State Hillary Clinton finally gave her testimony before Congress regarding what happened in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. The administration spent a good part of the fall explaining that Four Americans (including the Ambassador to Libya) were killed due to a viral YouTube video. They invested a lot of effort trying to convince people that this video was so offensive that it caused a group of peaceful people to grab some RPGs and go and kill some Americans. Of course, that wasn’t anywhere near the truth, which was that it was a planned al Qaeda terrorist attack.

When questioned about this, Future President Secretary of State Clinton said, ““With all due respect, the fact is, we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night who decide to kill some Americans, what difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.”
That is the glorious result of someone that has been drenched in situational ethics their entire adult life. It was the difference between being honest with the American people or lying to the American people. There wasn’t even a good reason to lie about it. Most Americans realize that even though Bin Laden is dead, he probably had some crazies left ready to pick up the ball. It was just an inconvenient truth in the middle of a competitive Presidential election.
“What difference does it make?” is probably on the Clinton Coat of Arms. Paula Jones: what difference does it make? Whitewater: what difference does it make? What difference does it make that President Clinton is a chubby chaser and how he likes to “relax” in the Oval Office?
If the political smarty pants are right, we have at least 12 more years (4 Obama + 8 Clinton Redux) of this. But what difference will it make? Nothing, except a man will be able to marry another man.
