It’s come to this

    While on Michael Baisden’s syndicated radio show on Wednesday, Obama warned that if the GOP regains a majority in Congress it would mean “hand-to-hand combat” on Capitol Hill. What does Obama mean? You can decide for yourself.

    This troubling statement from Obama is just the latest in a strange string of comments that have come from the administration over the past weeks leading up to the midterm elections. Earlier this week, Biden said that he would “strangle” Republicans that talk about balancing the budget.

    Clearly, violence has become a theme in the Obama strategy to maintain control of Congress.

    Aside from violent statements, the rhetoric from inside the Obama administration has also gone to the absurd end of the line. On Tuesday, Major Garret tweeted remarks from Biden at the same event where he threatened to “strangle” Republicans. Biden said, “We moved and started the recovery act, which actually no one doubts now.” Perhaps Biden meant that most Americans understand that the Recovery Act has done nothing to create such a “recovery”, but that in itself is doubtful.

    If anything, it is clear from Obama and his right-hand man that they are getting testy over the direction that the electorate is heading. They have made it known that they will get violent should things not go as they wish.

    When Obama and Biden use such language as “hand-to-hand combat” and “strangle” when they refer to the opposing political party, they are showing a deep disdain for the will of the American electorate. Poll after poll has indicated that voters will be sending Republicans to Congress in far greater numbers than they currently are. And instead of embracing what voters will ultimately do in the end, they resort to suggestions of violence. Despicable.

    Just think of how far we have come from the “Hope” and “Change” promises from Obama in 2008. It’s October of 2010 and Obama is talking about having a fistfight in Congress with Republicans should they be in charge. Perhaps Barry just needs a reminder of what he promised in his victory speech in 2008.

    “In this country, we rise or fall as one nation, as one people. Let’s resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettiness and immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long,” Obama said on November 4, 2008. I guess we are left to assume that threats of violence are not part of the “immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long.”

    Should Republicans retake majorities in Congress come November, we will all see what Obama meant by his comment. And we will be looking for Biden to “strangle” the next Republican that mentions that the budget should be balanced.
