Ideologue BO Declares, "I am not an Ideologue. I’m not."

ideologue (/iddilog, idi-/)  β€’ noun a person who follows an ideology in a dogmatic or uncompromising way.

In a rather bizarre, rambling diatribe that sort of evoked Ahmadinejad’s crazy ramblings at the U. N. last fall, BO asserted that he is not an ideologue.  Presumably he saw disbelief on the faces of the audience because after a pause he whined, “I’m not.”

Uh huh.

So, let me get this straight, you intend to plow ahead with your crazy schemes to bankrupt and destroy America, work in cahoots with terrorists (perhaps not directly but in effect, and I’m not convinced it’s not directly, just don’t have evidence of that), and take over every aspect of American industry that you can get your hands on . . . even though Americans have clearly told you–not once, twice, or three times but literally hundreds of times–that we don’t want this.  Any of the craziness that hands over more power, more control to the federal government.  But you’re not an ideologue?

In this same speech-like thing, BO also states, and I quote, “I still have to meet my responsibilities as president.  I’ve got to act for The Greater Good” (at about 18 mins).

Now I don’t know about you, but I don’t remember reading anywhere in the Constitution that the president’s job is to “act for The Greater Good.”  Here is what the Constitution grants to the executive branch:

Article. II.

[I did not include Section 1 because it deals with the crazy azz Electoral College (which has been amended anyway since ratification), compensation, requirements for office, and the presidential oath.]

Section. 2.The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.
He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.
The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.
Section. 3.
He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.
Section. 4.
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

That’s it.  Nothing else.  Nothing about The Greater Good.  And we know he thinks of that as in caps: “The Greater Good.”  He, like all progressives, who are a strange mix of socialist-communist-fascist with a sprinkle of totalitarianism, thinks that it is up to him and to government to legislate everything from morality to how much salt we can eat.  For The Greater Good.  That’s why, when asked last summer about someone’s elderly mother receiving needed care, he responded, well, take a pain pill, don’t have any tests or operations.  What’s the point in prolonging her life for another couple months?  That’s not in the interest of The Greater Good.  Likewise, the healthcare proposals will centralize all healthcare decisions in the government and focus on, base all decisions on, The Greater Good.  Is it pragmatic to give this person care?  Only if they contribute to society for the worth of that care.  This is a progressive stance, after all.  He’s not just an ideologue but a delusional nutjob ideologue (is there any other kind?).

I could go on and on giving examples of how BO’s idea of his “job” as “acting for The Greater Good” is anathema to everything this country was founded on and stands for, but my whole blog, really, points these out, condemns them and him.  Let me just say here, that when someone like BO, a rabid ideologue, tells you that he’s not an ideologue and that he’s working for The Greater Good, that he actually believes that his job is to “act for the Greater Good” . . . . look out.  History tells us that never ends well.

  1. Rather than the Greater Good, I'd settle for the lesser of two evils. Or, if you saw “Master and Commander: the far side of the world”, 'the greater of two weevils.'

  2. Damn Girl, you're on a roll!

    That's at least three outstanding posts in a row!

    When I heard him say “I'm not an ideologue” all I could think of is the picture Bro posted about putting on your Big Boy Britches!

    If one has to state that “I'm not an ideologue” it pretty much guarntees that he is! He is a blight on this country and to all who hold our freedoms and liberties so dear!

    We must do any and everything we can to stop him and his Marxist, Progressive cronies!

    Lock & Load!!!

    Sons & Daughters of Liberty Unite!!!

  3. “I'm not an Ideologue” I heard that line as it rolled off his lips—by his expression I could see he was lying and not sure he should even say it. Not a smooth flowing line. Presidents for many years have gained more and more power at the expense of the legislative branch of government and Congress seems willing to let this trend continue. Just the way it is Fuzzy—it does seem unconstitutional , but then I'm not on the SCOTUS.

  4. If you have to say it, you're probably not.

    “I'm not a crook” —> crook
    “The PEOPLE'S Republic of China” —> the people have no power
    “The German Democratic Republic (East Germany)” —> wasn't a democracy nor a republic
    “I'm not an ideologue” —> I'm an ideologue.

  5. Oh, please.

    Stop with your “Constitutional” this and your “What the Constitution allows” that.

    Don't you understand? This pResident and all Progressives know better than we ever will.

    They are educated at Harvard and Columbia University, and have organized communities.

    The Army and Navy? Bah!

    Remember, as the great Progressive John Heinz Ketchup Kerry once said, “You know, education? If you make the most of it, study hard, do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well… and if you don't, you get stuck in Iraq!”

    Ideologue? Hardly.. I forgot he was Black for about an hour…

  6. @ Fredd,lol “two weevils” I haven't seen it, but that's funny all the same.

    @ L, heh, thanks πŸ™‚ He's going to be more cagey and less obvious about his moves now, that will be his “move to center,” but as always, we need to watch what he does, not listen to the lies he spews.

    @ Ron, unbelievable, huh? That was an absolute jaw dropper, and when he followed up with “I'm not” it was all I could do not to laugh my ass off. Reminded me of my niece telling me that she didn't eat the cookies (chocolate from the chips still smeared on her cheek and fingers!): I didn't eat them. (foot stomp at my look of disbelief) I didn't!

    @ Bunni, that's the thing that is really worrying here, that he actually believes the crap he says. Such self-delusion in a country's leader, especially one who thinks he's been anointed to act for The Greater Good, is always a bad sign. A really really bad sign.

    @ Odie, exactly, but he wants to change the way he appears, not the way he is. You're right, he doesn't get to choose, but he's got Plouffe back in to recreate the facade that slipped away all last year. We cannot get taken in by any new rhetoric or lofty promises. Heh, not that we would. But it might work on indies who really want to believe that he's not as evil as he is.

    @ Velcro, good point! We can add the former USSR, to that, too.

    @ Soloman, hee! You're so right, whatever was I thinking? Of course he has the education and background to think for us all and to decide everything for us. I'm really not one for being outside farming or building roads. But if BO thinks I should be, well, he's right. Of course.

    LOL, that Kerry quote killed his bid for the presidency for all time. What an idiot.

    @ Nickie, “you can't quit . . . you're fired!” (2012)

    @ Opus, the man is raw, pulsing evil and hasn't an honorable bone in his body.

    @ Trestin, that's definitely true and has indeed been happening for . . . well, forever. Almost every president has amassed more power in the executive branch. I'm interesting in stopping this guy, though. We can worry about all that later, when he's been dethroned.

  7. Reminds me of Nixon's quote “I'm not a crook !”
    heheh

    I sense that this one will go down in the historical/jockularital record as well.

    Great Post Fuzzy.

    It's a cliche (meaning so true) but when the Dems say We're not – They are, it means the Dems are guilty.

    In fact, I'll bet if you pumped a little gas into the Congressional Critterdom, as soon as everyone went Sniff? Sniff?, the Dems would all pop up and say “It wasn't Me”.

  8. “From where Winston stood it was just possible to read, picked out on its white face in elegant lettering, the three slogans of the Party:
    WAR IS PEACE
    FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
    IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.” — Orwell, 1984

    Maybe you could add “I'm not an ideologue…” because in the present administration any statement invariably means the opposite.

  9. Fuzzy: 'weevils.' It went something like this; officers of a Brit warship during the Napoleonic wars were having dinner at the captain's table. There were a two weevils crawling around a bowl of biscuits, a small weevil and a large weevil. The captain (portrayed by Russell Crowe) asked the ship's doctor which weevil he would choose, if compelled to do so, to prevail in its struggle for survival. The doctor, after examining the weevils, chose the larger one. The captain asked, why, why choose the larger weevil and the doctor answered that it was more robust, and would likely prevail over the smaller weevil, as Dr. Darwin would agree.

    At that moment, the captain shouted, 'No, good doctor, one must always choose the lesser of two weevils!” At which point the whole table of officers howled with laughter, and one of them held up his mug of grog, toasting 'to the lesser of two weevils!'

    I guess you had to be there.

  10. What I don't understand is why he's still at about 50/50 approve/disapprove. But ya, your outline of the Articles is something I've thought of before. The president's job is primarily to scare bad people, and failing that, destroy them.

  11. Candle – 50/50 ? Easy. Black people vastly approve. Union people are too dependent now to dis-approve.
    The rest of the 50% is made up of criminals on the payroll, Naive punks, dweebs, screeds, miscreants, and fringe elements where the left is their only, (even if none) hope.

    imo of course.

  12. @ Kid, yes, it certainly does smack of Nixon's denial, doesn't it? Hopefully, he won't get far enough along in his plans that this becomes a statement of historical proportions. I pray not.

    @ LL, heh, didn't even think of that, but yes, it's a good reference! πŸ™‚

    @ Fredd, lol, love that! Bet it is funnier with a good glass of grog, too. πŸ˜‰

    @ CANDELABRA!! Where have you been? I've missed you muchly, you know. And yes, I'm seriously flummoxed by and have no explanation for BO's high approval ratings (well, not high by normal first-year standards, but you know what I mean). Though Kid may be on to something. Hehe, love your presidential job description! πŸ™‚

  13. Sorry I haven't been around much, I can't keep the same blog-reading hours as I used to 😦 Very, very happy you're still laying it out loud and proud. Not sure if you know, I'm posting over at feedyouradhd.com as both “candle” and “ex-parrot”.

    cheerio
