Obama's Chicago-style politics: how the most undesirable man in politics hopes to get reelected.

We have all heard the story about how Barack Hussein Obama got elected to his first government position in Illinois. He was running in a primary against five other Democrats in Chicago and he used a bunch of lawyers to challenge the nominating petitions of his opponents and had them all disqualified. Being the only remaining Democrat on the ballot he got the job. Then after a brief lackluster career in the Illinois legislature in which he recorded a string of "present" votes on legislation, Obama decided (or his handlers decided for him) to run him for the U.S. Senate. During the election campaign against the popular Illinois Republican Jack Ryan, Obama's advisor David Axelrod surreptitiously managed to get Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert Schnider to unseal some messy divorce papers. Jack Ryan had been married to Hollywood actress Jeri Ryan and they were divorced in 1999. The revelation of those court-sealed documents impacted Ryan's campaign and forced him to withdraw only a few months before the election. The Illinois Republican Party replaced him with Alan Keyes who went on to defeat, thus catapulting Obama into the U.S. Senate in 2004. Wikipedia describes the events this way without revealing the details:
"On March 29, 2004, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert Schnider ruled that several of the Ryans' divorce records should be opened to the public, and ruled that a court-appointed referee would later decide which custody files should remain sealed to protect the interests of Ryan's young child.The following week, on April 2, 2004, Barack Obama formally established his position about the Ryans' soon-to-be-released divorce records, and called on Democrats not to inject them into the campaign. The Ryan campaign characterized Obama's stance as hypocritical, because Obama's alleged backers had been emailing reports about the divorce records prior to Judge Schnider's decision."
On July 27, 2004 the relatively unknown Illinois State Senator Barack Hussein Obama gave the keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention. Although he had already publicly announced his withdrawal from the race, on July 29, 2004 Jack Ryan officially filed his resignation papers to be removed from the Senatorial campaign. Almost immediately after being sworn in to the U.S. Senate, Barack Hussein Obama began his presidential campaign.
Now we see in today's news that the ugly head of Chicago-style machine politics has stepped out again into the light of day. Barack Hussein Obama has singled out the names of eight private citizens who have given campaign donations to Republican Mitt Romney and accused them of "Betting against America". In a story in the Wall Street Journal on April 26, 2012,
Strassel: The President Has a List

Barack Obama attempts to intimidate contributors to Mitt Romney's campaign. 

Try this thought experiment: You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney. You want change in the Oval Office, so you engage in your democratic right to send a check.

Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name. His campaign brands you a Romney donor, shames you for "betting against America," and accuses you of having a "less-than-reputable" record. The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.

Are you worried?

Richard Nixon's "enemies list" appalled the country for the simple reason that presidents hold a unique trust. Unlike senators or congressmen, presidents alone represent all Americans. Their powers—to jail, to fine, to bankrupt—are also so vast as to require restraint. Any president who targets a private citizen for his politics is de facto engaged in government intimidation and threats. This is why presidents since Nixon have carefully avoided the practice.

Save Mr. Obama, who acknowledges no rules. This past week, one of his campaign websites posted an item entitled "Behind the curtain: A brief history of Romney's donors." In the post, the Obama campaign named and shamed eight private citizens who had donated to his opponent. Describing the givers as all having "less-than-reputable records," the post went on to make the extraordinary accusations that "quite a few" have also been "on the wrong side of the law" and profiting at "the expense of so many Americans."

Read the rest here:
Keep in mind that Barack Hussein Obama has acquired many new powers since he took possession of the White House and among them is the infamous detention of any American citizen who he proclaims to be an enemy of the state. Obama's Homeland Security has labeled many conservative Americans who support Pro-Life and 2nd Amendment issues as being potential terrorists while at the same time Obama was appointing radical communists and Muslims to high posts in the government. Obama's Justice Dept. has protected the violent New Black Panthers. Obama's ability to terrify and intimidate is quite substantial and real and gives all Americans even more reason to throw him out of office in November. Our Founding Fathers decided not to be ruled by a king and chose a Republic, instead, but Obama has been acting like he was some kind of royalty since being sworn in. Our Founding Fathers also had unkind words for dictators, too.
I cannot imagine anyone who calls them self an American voting for any Democrat who, in turn, pledges allegiance to Barack Hussein Obama.
