Americans Are Scared Of Barack Obama
There’s No Two Ways About It
By Dell Hill
Alan Caruba asks the question....
“It is possible for an entire nation to suffer depression? Not the financial, but the emotional kind.
have not spoken to anyone, however, that has expressed any optimism
about the state of the nation and the air is full of conspiracy theories
regarding what new action Barack Obama might take. The most popular of
these is that he will declare “a national emergency” in order to assert
powers that would put him in control of the nation without reference or
consultation with Congress.
would have dismissed such a notion in the past, but Obama genuinely
scares me and a lot of other people as well. An example of this was the
great surge in gun sales that led up to Christmas. Guns are not
generally regarded as the kind of gift you find under the Christmas tree
unless you’re a hunter or shooting sportsman.
cannot shake off the memory of the march on Washington in 2009 when an
estimated million Americans gathered there to peacefully protest the
pending passage of Obamacare. The President’s chief political advisor,
David Axelrod, dismissed the gathering saying, “They’re wrong.” That’s
beyond arrogance. It signals contempt for the way a democracy works.
were not wrong and the Supreme Court has scheduled a hearing in March
in response to 26 U.S. State Attorney Generals who filed suit to have
Obamacare declared unconstitutional. The manner in which the
then-Democrat controlled Congress forced the bill through to passage was
scary, along with then-Speaker Pelosi’s statement that we just would
have to pass the bill “to find out what’s in it.” It was apparent that
none of the members of Congress who voted for it had bothered to read
scary, too, is that Congress has provided the presidency with all

only in the event of a major, national crisis. Even following 9/11
these powers were not used to hamper news coverage, freedom of travel,
and other aspects of our lives. 9/11, however, was followed by the
Patriot Act and many of us continue to have grave misgivings about some
of its provisions.
more recent piece of legislation that permits the President to
authorize the seizure, arrest and imprisonment of anyone deemed an enemy
of the state is scarier still. Obama says he would not use such
powers, but modern history is filled with examples of dictators that

Dell’s Bottom Line:
just no two ways about it. Americans are scared of Barack Obama, and I
believe they have every good reason to be. Every day, it seems, some
new action is taken by this President that even elderly New England blog
writers believe to be unconstitutional.
also had the same opinion as Alan Caruba on the reported rumor that
Obama was planning on creating a situation whereby he would declare
martial law and suspend the 2012 elections if he felt there was a strong
chance he might not win that election. At first I said “no way would
any President do such a thing”. Now? I’m not so sure.

believe there are many millions of Americans who feel exactly the same
