Republican Senator Lamar Alexander voiced what the rest of us have noticed, and urged, in response, President Barack Obama to not "start an enemies list."
One day a scorpion wanted to cross a river, but there were no bridges. He happened across a turtle and asked the turtle if he could ride atop his shell across the river. The turtle replied, "No, you'll sting me." The scorpion promised he would do nothing of the sort, and convinced the turtle to provide the favor. About half way across the river the scorpion reach his tail around and stung the turtle in the neck. The turtle said, "Hey, you promised you wouldn't sting me. Why did you sting me?"
The scorpion replied, "I'm a scorpion. It's what I do."
Even some members of the media are warning Obama he shouldn't be targeting anyone, or demonizing his opposition, or singling out Fox News (or the Chamber of Commerce, medical doctors, CEOs, anyone making a profit, creditors, big oil, Connecticut policemen, capitalists, Bush, Christians, gun owners, tea party protestors, the insurance industry, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and anyone who is not a radical fascist like Barry). Of course the media doesn't really mean it. Underneath it all I think the media would like to see Obama (and gang) do something like outlaw conservatism.
We, the conservatives, have been proclaiming that not only does Obama have an enemies list, but he would like to act upon it to silence the opposition. This is why there has been so much talk about the Democrat's desire to bring back the Fairness Doctrine.
Lamar Alexander finally voiced in Washington what we've been saying all along.
The Republicans don't understand why Obama is doing this, or why he won't stop habitually campaigning, and attacking anyone that dares to have a contrary opinion to his own.
Understand, my friends, Obama doesn't care what you think, or what Fox News says, or if he is in the wrong or right in regards to creating an enemies lists. All he knows is he wants government to take control of the people, and the first step of accomplishing his bloodless coup is socialized medicine, and taking over the private industries. If there is any opposition, he will follow Saul Alinsky's program, as he has ever step of the way.
In other words, Obama won't stop until his agenda is in place, and all "enemies" are eliminated.
But why would he do that? Doesn't he know that the First Amendment means something to the people of America?
Because Obama's a fascist, commie, liberal bastard - and like the scorpion, acting upon his socialist ideals is what he does.
