Political campaign consultant Dick Morris is releasing a new book that promises to reveal President Barack Obama’s “secret plan” to turn America into a country ruled exclusively by extreme-left liberals.
Could there be hidden truths exposed in Morris’ book, titled, Power Grab: Obama’s Dangerous Plan for a One-Party Nation?
According to Morris, Obama’s agenda goes beyond simply putting through a healthcare bill and giving illegal immigrants amnesty. It is a systematic deconstruction of the American political system, intended to move us away from the bipartisan conflict that has always been at the heart of our government.
While angry Americans on both sides of the aisle complain about the failure of Washington to get anything done, the truth is that the worst thing for the country would be the complete domination of either major party. As someone who would rejoice to see the White House, the House, and the Senate all controlled by Republicans, I understand that an obsolete Democrat Party would be disastrous for the nation.
Not, however, as disastrous as what Morris claims Obama has planned. His central thesis is that everything Obama has done while in office has been to marginalize the Republican Party, turning liberal rule into the law of the land. We’ve seen this in the endless assortment of flagrant, anti-constitutional executive actions this president has taken, finding every way in the book to lead without consulting Congress.
Morris also says that Obamacare, immigration reform, and Common Core play into Obama’s strategy.
Whether Obama is out for that much blood is up for debate, but there’s no question that his policies have led us further and further to the left. He has gone far beyond the typical Democrat president. Hell, liberals are chomping at the bit to put Hillary Clinton in office because they think it will be a return to some kind of normalcy in politics.
The Devil in Plain Sight
When Obama was ramping up his first campaign, the more outspoken conservatives referred to him as a “socialist Muslim,” only to be disregarded by the mainstream media as kooks and racists. Yet, six years later, what do we have? Maybe Obama isn’t the Islamic mole some feared he would be, but he has certainly ruined America with his leftist politics. Where he was born and what god he prays to is almost immaterial at this point. He could have been born on the lap of Ronald Reagan and raised in a Southern Baptist church, and it wouldn’t make his terrible policies any better.
With all due respect to Dick Morris, who has written a fascinating book, looking for a secret agenda may be little more than navelgazing. This is a president who proves where his loyalties lie with every action he takes.
The real scary question now isn’t what Obama has left to accomplish, but rather what lasting effects his administration will leave on this country. A stunning addition to the debt, certainly, but we’ll have to consider ourselves lucky if that’s the extent of the longterm damage. And if another liberal Democrat takes his place in the White House…well, that’s a prospect that’s almost too dismal to consider.
