Much as he may want to confiscate America's guns, Obama realizes he cannot win that battle today, but it makes for a great diversion for his failure to rein in the deficits as he promised he would.
Obama flits from news story to news story to divert attention from his shortcomings.
Of course the nation is a deadbeat. Everyone knows that we don't repay our debt, we just roll it over.
China no longer loans us money. Instead, the Federal Reserve just prints up more money, watering down my savings.
Being a deadbeat nation is part of Obama's plan.
He wants to break the nation in order to control the nation, so that the result will be a far different nation.
Obamacare is the disaster opponents predicted. Premiums are higher, fewer people are insured, and physicians are closing shop.
That is part of the plan. Obamacare will be such a failure that the only solution - according to government officials - will be a government-run medical industry.
That is the pattern of government. When a government program fails to deliver as promised, the government seeks another, even larger government program.
Every president since Calvin Coolidge has expanded the federal government's power, even Ronald Reagan.
Oh, I suppose you can justify any federal program.
Streetscapes are nice. Bicycle paths are nice. Having 2,193 federal assistance programs is nice.
But enough is enough. We cannot afford all these programs and all these regulations and requirements that go with them.
This is the land of the free and the home of the brave - not the land of gun control and deadbeats.
