Our big messy democracy is square in Obama’s path to success. The Community Organizer is accustomed to winning at City Halls, local voting booths and bank boardrooms. Bullying works and he knows it, but it isn’t so simple in our republic. It works well in a democracy, but we don’t have a ‘democracy.’ We have a ‘republic’. Democracies are not messy. Democracies are brutal. Obama, the wiliest among us, knows in a Democracy you can whip-up the people, and the frenzy can lead to your side winning in the streets. When that happens, your side ends up ruling. In a republic, we elect our representatives in Washington, D.C. and be damned the idea of majority rule. Al Gore says we need an Arab Spring, never mind that every country under Arab rule, is ruled…that not a single freedom-fighter uprising in any Arab country has been successful, that people always suffer under democracy, that the ballot box in not sacred, that whoever is in power represents the democracy…there are no checks and balances. Never mind that people have died in the streets at the hands of dictators and military who have turned their weapons on their own people.
“It’s been a long, tough journey. But we have made some incredible strides together. Yes, we have. But the thing that we all ought to remember is that as much as good as we have done, precisely because the challenges were so daunting, precisely because we we were inheriting so many challenges, that we’re not even halfway there yet. When I said ‘change we can believe in’ I didn’t say ‘change we can believe in tomorrow.’ Not change we can believe in next week. We knew this was going to take time because we’ve got this big, messy, tough democracy,” President Obama said at a campaign fundraiser in Chicago on Wednesday night. Source Fox Nation.
Gore is talking to Keith Olbermann who now works for Gore on Current TV. About the debt limit legislation just passed he said:
[Jeff Poor DailyCaller] Gore said the new law demands the “reinvigoration of democracy” or an “American spring,” to get the country back on what he thinks is the right course.
[Gore] We need to have an American spring — you know, the Arab spring. The non-violent part of it isn’t finished yet, but we need to have an American spring, a kind of an American non-violent change where people on the grassroots get involved again. Not the, you know, not in the Tea Party-style.”
The non-violent part of it “isn’t finished yet?” The “non-violent part lost to a dictator’s personal police and the country’s military. What is he talking about? Is he intimating the TEA Party is violent? Is he intimating the Arab Spring is not violent. We can’t make this stuff up. Gore says Obama must get the country back on the track HE thinks is right. You might think there is no way a President alone can do this, but it is imperative to recognize what Obama has done and is doing by simply unconstitutionally bypassing Congress. Gore is facing a coming government that will defund his leftist greenie, millionaire-making industry. We must take these two seriously. They are both emboldened by the debt limit bill, but they know they and their ideologies will be out on their carbon-producing asses in November. The last gauntlet is laid.
