Barack Hussein Obama is a man who chooses his words carefully. There are no acts of terror, only "man-caused disasters." Under his watch, the term "Islamic radical" has been scrubbed from the books of Homeland Security and law enforcement. When a Muslim murders soldiers at Fort Hood, or attempts to detonate an underwear bomb, or drives a car filled with explosives to Times Square, this president reminds us to watch what we say and not "jump to conclusions."
All of this being the case, when the president labels Republicans "hostage-takers" (and the American people "hostages"), we have to assume that he has not done so casually, but is instead making a deliberate attempt to be as insulting as possible...not just to the Republicans, but to the American majority that just voted them in to restore fiscal sanity in Washington. And all while reminding us that he doesn't take real terrorism seriously.
"It's tempting not to negotiate with hostage-takers," the president sneered to the Whitehouse press corps, "unless the hostage gets harmed. The hostage was the American people."
And what, exactly, were the hostage-takers demands? The end of Western civilization? Blood running in the streets? Virgins to gleefully violate for the rest of eternity?
No, the "hostage-takers" didn't want Obama to raise the people's taxes and kill jobs during the worst employment market since World War II. And Obama had to "compromise" to save the American hostages from the "harm" of hanging on to their own money and making their own life choices.
Hope n' Change would normally try to tie this commentary up with a neat little bow and some clever wordplay. But not today. Not when something is this serious.
When Barack Obama's supremely partisan political rhetoric gets this ugly, and his desire to divide our country and inspire class warfare becomes this obvious, it's really time to look seriously into impeachment. And until we do, we are all hostages.
