The Obama Campaign’s New Flag Emblem Speaks Volumes

The image on this page is the official new flag emblem of the Obama campaign.  You can see it at this link and read some initial reactions at this link.

You just can’t make this stuff up.

Note how the 50 stars have vanished, symbolizing the end of federalism.  Evidently, there is no more need for those 50 laboratories trying different approaches to individual freedom and prosperity for their citizens.  The wisdom of Obama is all we need, you see.

No more Illinois vs Indiana economic/regulatory models to compare.  Or California vs Texas.  Or even New York vs New Jersey.  All we need is the supervision and sanctimony of Obama’s central planners deciding everything for us.

Our old pals Tom Friedman and Ray LaHood must surely love this flag emblem since we know they both envy the Chinese central government’s dictatorial powers.  They do have local governance in China, but everybody knows who’s boss.  That’s what attracts Tom and Ray.   And that’s what makes this new flag emblem an appropriate symbol for the appalling future that the Left is creating for America.

Today, of course, Obama still has to deal with pesky governors like Brewer (AZ), Scott (FL), Daniels (IN), Jindal (LA), Christie (NJ), Martinez (NM), Kasich (OH), Haley (SC), Perry (TX), McDonnell (VA), and Walker (WI).   We know he  laments how difficult the Founders, the Constitution, and these governors have made it for him to bring “change to America.”

Oh, those awful Founders … why couldn’t they have foreseen the arrival of the Dear Leader, Barack Obama?

Actually, of course, they did foresee it — that’s why we have the Constitution’s enumerated powers and a 10th Amendment.  But Obama promises to keep trying to bring “change to America”, and this new flag is the perfect symbol of what he intends to do with the 10th Amendment.

Note also in the emblem how the 13 bold strips have faded into a blurry 9.  That’s an aptly chosen metaphor for the fading memory of our founding history and Constitution, as the mal-education of our nation’s youth marches on toward progressivism, redistributionism, statism, collectivism, socialism, fascism, neo-Maxism, or whatever other ‘ism’ name one chooses to represent what the Left is currently proffering.

Well …

That’s a lot for one new emblem to represent, but the Obama campaign did it!  Kudos to Obama and his campaign staff for jamming all these great Leftist themes and objectives into one symbol.

Richard Carmona Visits DC for Anniversary of Obama’s Phone Call Recruiting Him to Run

Arizona Republican Party

Arizona Republican Party Sends Bouquet to Carmona to Celebrate Important Anniversary

Obama Phones Carmona

PHOENIX – What a difference a year makes!  Just one year ago — September 23, 2011 — Richard Carmona received a phone call from President Obama who encouraged the Tucson resident to run as a Democrat for the U.S. Senate.  Carmona responded enthusiastically, and for the past year has busily embraced the liberal agenda of the Obama Administration on every issue from taxes, healthcare, abortion, to the redistribution of wealth — all while collecting campaign checks from liberal interest groups and Senate Democrats like Harry Reid, Al Franken and Chuck Schumer.

In recognition of the anniversary of Obama’s call recruiting Carmona, the Arizona Republican Party sent a bouquet of carnations to Carmona’s campaign office in Phoenix.  Carnations are the traditional symbol of the first anniversary of an important event.

“While Arizona is suffering from devastating unemployment and higher taxes from Obama’s healthcare plan, Richard Carmona is jet-setting around Washington, DC, and rubbing elbows with wealthy liberals who are only going to make things worse,” said Arizona Republican Party spokesman Tim Sifert.  “President Obama and his liberal cohorts have failed this country once already and Richard Carmona is part of their plan to do it again.”

President Obama Promised The Stimulus Would ‘Create Or Save’ 3.5 Million Jobs 

ASSOCIATED PRESS:  The Obama administration is defending its claim that the $787 billion economic stimulus plan will save or create 3.5 million jobs before 2011 even while conceding that unemployment will likely continue to rise beyond its earlier predictions.  (Stimulus plan will create or save 3.5 million jobs, White House says, Associated Press, 05/11/09)

Poverty and Unemployment Now Lasting Hallmarks of Obama Administration

  • In 2011, the official overall poverty rate was 15.0 percent. There were 46.2 million people in poverty in the U.S. (“Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States: 2011”United States Census Bureau, Figure 4 and Table 3)
  • National unemployment rate for August 2011 is 8.1% (News Release, Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, 9/7/2012)

Rubber Stamp Rich Debuts! – Get the facts on Richard Carmona!

Rubber Stamp Rich

Meet Richard “Rubberstamp” Carmona

The general election for United States Senate in Arizona begins today and the choice couldn’t be more clear. Jeff Flake is a principled leader who has fought both political parties in order to reform Washington. Flake will be a Senator who will provide a check and balance on President Obama and congressional Democrats, and fight to put America’s economy and job market back on track.

And then there’s Democrat Richard Carmona. Personally handpicked and recruited by President Barack Obama to run for the Senate in Arizona, Carmona has spent much of his campaign trying to hide the fact that he’ll be a rubber stamp for the Democrats’ liberal agenda in Washington.

In a new web video by the Flake campaign, we see why Richard Carmona is wrong for Arizona.

Medicare Going Broke: Carmona’s Support of Obama Agenda Bad for Arizona Seniors

PHOENIX – Just as Democrat Richard Carmona answered the call from President Obama who asked him to run for the U.S. Senate, Carmona is backing ObamaCare which is funded by taking more than $700 billion out of Medicare. Recent reports show Obama’s fiscal mismanagement and failure to plan will cause Medicare to run out of money by 2024.

“President Obama said Medicare ‘is a big nightmare’ and based on his lack of a plan and failure of leadership, we’re never going to wake up from it,” said Arizona Republican Party spokesman Tim Sifert. “Obama actually raided more than $700 billion from Medicare to fund ObamaCare, and he’s out recruiting more Democrats like Richard Carmona to make sure it stays that way.”

The Republican National Committee today released an online timeline to count down the days until 2024 when Medicare will be bankrupt.

BACKGROUND …

Changes Made To Medicare Under ObamaCare Are “Not Viable In The Long Range”

“Further, while the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, as amended, makes important changes to the Medicare program and substantially improves its financial outlook, there is a strong likelihood that certain of these changes will not be viable in the long range.” (2010 Annual Report Of The Boards Of Trustees Of The Federal Hospital Insurance And Federal Supplementary Medical Insurance Trust Funds)

Medicare Trustees: Trust Fund To Be Exhausted In 2024

The Annual Report From The Medicare Trustees Reports That The Medicare Trust Fund Will Go Bankrupt Five Years Earlier Than Previously Predicted: “However, the HI trust fund is now estimated to be exhausted in 2024, 5 years earlier than was shown in last year’s report, and the fund is not adequately financed over the next 10 years. HI taxable earnings in 2010 were lower than previously estimated, and the rate of growth in these earnings is projected to accelerate and to exceed last year’s growth assumptions in 2011-2019. HI expenditures in 2010 were close to the previous estimate, but the projected level grows more rapidly than shown in last year’s report because of the projected faster growth in earnings. HI expenditures have exceeded income annually since 2008 and are projected to continue doing so through the short-range period until the fund becomes exhausted in 2024. In 2010, $32.3 billion in trust fund assets were redeemed to cover the shortfall of income relative to expenditures.” (2011 Annual Report Of The Boards Of Trustees Of The Federal Hospital Insurance And Federal Supplementary Medical Insurance Trust Funds)

RNC Releases New Ad: “Serious Questions”

President Obama just wrapped up another hard-hitting interview where he discussed America’s top concerns, like whether our president prefers green or red chiles, his take on “Call Me Maybe,” and what superpower he wished he had. It’s been over eight weeks since President Obama took a question from the White House Press Corps.

RNC Releases Graphic “Mr. President, We Have A Few Questions”

WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee is out with a new graphic “Mr. President, We Have A Few Questions” that includes 10 questions that President Obama needs to answer. It has been nearly eight weeks since he has taken questions from the White House press corps, yet he’s had time to jet around the country raising money for his campaign. When will President Obama take responsibility for the economy and his staff’s behavior and quit dodging the tough questions?

“America faces tough challenges with high unemployment and exploding debt, yet President Obama hasn’t answered questions from the White House press corps in nearly eight weeks,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “His administration is also embroiled in controversy and his campaign will not own up to the outrageous rhetoric being peddled by the Obama Super PAC and Vice President Biden. Why won’t President Obama take questions? Does he have something to hide? The American people deserve answers.”

Dreams from My REAL Father – Truth or Fiction?

This certainly makes a wild conspiracy theory story!

I was hesitant about posting this but it’s going to make the rounds anyway so our readers might as well discuss…

What President Obama REALLY Said

This is the same clip President Obama is using to try and recant his comments that denigrated small business owners, but we know the truth. He said it and he meant it. If you keep attacking success, you’ll continue to have less of it. It’s as simple as that. See for yourself — you be the judge.
