Change: DC Adopts Politics of Chicago

Politics, Chicago-style, have long been enviously admired by Washington DC’s wimpy, milquetoast practitioners.

Not much longer.

Entering Obama time

David Frum’s piece at The Week speaks to a thought that passes through my mind, and lingers long enough for me to feel it on my chest like a dead weight, every morning when I wake up. That at this moment of maximum susceptibility to corruption, the United States has entrusted itself to its first president trained in the Chicago school of politics (and along with him his friends and theirs) made famous by Mayor Richard Daley and his progeny.

… We are moving toward a closer entanglement of business, finance and government than anything the United States has known since the end of World War II. In another political system, the interpenetration of power and money would spark justified fears of authoritarianism. The vice of the American political system is not authoritarianism. It is corruption.

… Perhaps the greatest misconception about Barack Obama is that he is some sort of anti-establishment revolutionary. Rather, every stage of his political career has been marked by an eagerness to accommodate himself to existing institutions.

More on America’s grave mistake and what Obama’s election more likely than not will bring us in the times ahead – with the U.S. government owning a big chunk of the nation’s financial system – and soon the automakers, too – here…

As Frum observes in his piece, it may no longer be just Chicago that isn’t ready for reform. From Atlantic to Pacific, the whole country may soon be running on ‘”Daley time.”

Chicago’s finest are flocking into DC by the ship-load; taking on powerful positions in the Obama administration, to teach extreme Chicago corruption skills to the DC lackeys. The Obama administration will certainly live up to its campaign rhetoric of “changing Washington,” if no other promise.

Undoubtedly, some of the Chicago team will populate federal prison cells soon. As they like it. Surviving in prison is a key talent of Chicago politicians. Back home, about half of them wind up in prison; or it would seem. They are definitely qualified to change Washington.


Chairman Obama Clears Team, Self

Chairman Obama recently ordained that his team, and he, is clear of any complicity in Chicago’s Blagojevich abomination, according to the Los Angeles Times, here.

American Journalists, with a very few notable exceptions (Parsons & McCormick), breathed a collective sigh of relief.

Unfortunately for Obama, Obama is operating from his home ground of Chicago! (The Journalists said it; no kidding).

H/T: Obama’s First Miracle Riehl World View

Obama Gov’t Will Misallocate National Resources

Keynesian spending fails every time it is tried in the real world. Hoover’s Keynesian economics failed; Roosevelt’s Keynesian economics failed; Bush’s (the younger) Keynesian economics failed.

Keynesian economics amounts to wholesale misallocation of national resources.

Obamanomics combines the worst features of Keynesian economics with the worst features of communist “economics.”

Upon the economic calamity caused by affordable, nothing-down, no-income check mortgages, Obama will heap the massive insult of disastrous Keynesian economics, all the while spreading the wealth around.

Obama’s “change you can believe in” is the formula for human, American, disaster; as he’s already shown by suing Citigroup in 1995 to write more loans to borrowers who couldn’t pay on overvalued collateral.

Here is a realistic assessment of the “Keynesian” portion of Obamanomics.

Next Under the Bus – Israel

The free ride for Israel is over; done; fini.

Israel has not been respecting its obligations. Have a nice day.

Martin Indyk, having assured Jewsih audiences of Barack Obama’s strong support for Israel, states today:

Israel can no longer expect “blank cheques” from Washington once president-elect Barack Obama’s administration takes over in January, a former US ambassador to the Jewish state said on Sunday.

“The era of the blank cheque is over,” said Martin Indyk, director of the Centre for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institute who is considered close to incoming secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

“The Obama administration intends to be engaged, using diplomacy to try to bring about a safer and more peaceful place, that is different from the seven years of the (George W.) Bush administration,” he said on public radio.

“President Obama surely will want to work with Israel on this (Middle East) agenda. But there are obligations on both sides (Israel and the Arabs). Both sides will have to respect these obligations,” Indyk said.

Conference Day – Can Obama Repeal the Constitution, himself?

Obama says the US Constitution has a vast blind spot – see Constitution Fundamentally Flawed – Obama

Like other radical leftists before him, Obama wants to replace it.

Obama forgot to read the Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5, however, which precludes him as a candidate for president; the framers explicitly prohibited a president with divided loyalties, particularly loyalties divided with Great Britain.

No wonder he doesn’t like it.

Maybe the Supreme Court will agree with Leo Donofrio, in conference today.

From Donofrio’s Supreme Court lawsuit v. New Jersey Secretary of State Nina Wells, via Investigating Obama:

The Framers wanted to make themselves eligible to be President, but they didn’t want future generations to be Governed by a Commander In Chief who had split loyalty to another Country. The Framers were comfortable making an exception for themselves. They did, after all, create the Constitution. But they were not comfortable with the possibility of future generations of Presidents being born under the jurisdiction of Foreign Powers, especially Great Britain and its monarchy, who the Framers and Colonists fought so hard in the American Revolution to be free of.

The process of qualifying a presidential candidate is broken and intervention is necessary.

Terrorism; To Prosecute, Or Abet

Those prominent in the “Office Of The President-Elect” think terrorists need a break, too.

“The Best and The Brightest” now including failed deputy AG Eric Holder want peace and love, when it comes to murderous, bombing, machete wielding, Marxists.

In the spirit of 9-11, Bill Clinton permitted Osama bin Laden to escape confinement in Somalia. Clinton, with the able assistance of terrorist sympathizer Eric Holder, pardoned sixteen murderous FALN and Los Macheteros terrorists. The rest is history.

Holder spared no effort to free the murderers. When Bill Clinton and Eric Holder are dead, they will stop handing out peace and love and freedom to the most dangerous terrorists in the world.

You have won the Elect Obama Grand Prize! Eric Holder will be the Attorney General of the United States, if forger Obama becomes President.

You can rest assured that AG Eric Holder will make certain that terrorists get a fair break, meaning freedom to do what they want. Holder’s track record is here
