Gingrich: If Palin Took Obama Actions, There Would Be Calls for Impeachment.
First of all, get used to the idea of “President Palin” .
Then remember that the executive branch of government is supposed to enforce existing laws, not decide whether or not they’re constitutional. That job goes to the courts if the laws are challenged.
Sooo check out what Gingrich (quoted at Newsmax) has to say about what would happen if a Republican did what Obama is doing.
“Imagine that Governor Palin had become president. Imagine that she had announced that Roe versus Wade in her view was unconstitutional and therefore the United States government would no longer protect anyone’s right to have an abortion because she personally had decided it should be changed. The news media would have gone crazy. The New York Times would have demanded her impeachment.”
44 – Obama makes history with social secretary pick.
Of uppermost importance to the Washington Post is not the political and career credentials of Jeremy Bernard. Top most in the headlines and in the article is Bernard’s sexual preference. Incidentally, his topmost pertinent accomplishments are probably in the area of Obama fundraising.
In times past, history was made by accomplishments, and these were highlighted, with the personal lives of our renowned heros something that had had to be dug up by those with interest in the matter.
Now the personal life is on top, with the accomplishments a bare footnote.
We see what’s most important to the left.
We also see why gay people who can see the whole picture have turned conservative. Those with brains prefer the society with an economy that could sustain them, and in which they could keep their heads.
Down the road from Obama…… an economy and obamacare which can’t sustain gays, and a theocratic political system which has shown a propensity for chopping off the heads of homosexuals.
Obama needs to come out of the closet. He chooses these symbolic means of supporting his interest in gay rights, rather than overtly coming out in their favor. His fear of coming out has led him into constitutional issues, as he has been picking and choosing which laws to enforce. The executive branch is supposed to enforce all of them.
