Popular Right Wing Site Blares That Coup May Be Necessary For “Obama Problem”
Laffy’s Political Carnival is at it again. She points to the Newsmax story about how a domestic military intervention may be needed to solve the “Obama problem.” John L. Perry, the author, is described as “a prize-winning newspaper editor and writer who served on White House staffs of two presidents.” Perry promotes this fantasy coup as being realistic because our military is going to see what’s going on and do something about it.
# Top military officers can see the Constitution they are sworn to defend being trampled as American institutions and enterprises are nationalized.
# They can see that Americans are increasingly alarmed that this nation, under President Barack Obama, may not even be recognizable as America by the 2012 election, in which he will surely seek continuation in office.
# They can see that the economy — ravaged by deficits, taxes, unemployment, and impending inflation — is financially reliant on foreign lender governments.
# They can see this president waging undeclared war on the intelligence community, without whose rigorous and independent functions the armed services are rendered blind in an ever-more hostile world overseas and at home.
# They can see the dismantling of defenses against missiles targeted at this nation by avowed enemies, even as America’s troop strength is allowed to sag.
Perhaps some military personnel would like to weigh in to verify whether this is current thinking or totally absurd.Click here for reuse options!
