WASHINGTON, DC- Frank Gaffney
As President Obama offered his assessment of the State of the Union last night, recall that it came from a man who vowed to “fundamentally transform” America.
So when he talked about redressing “income inequality,” that’s code for transforming what is left of our capitalist economy along the lines of state-directed redistribution of wealth. His defense of Obamacare will similarly mask his ambition to raise from its ashes government-run health care.
Perhaps most worrying were his assertions that he will use his pen to do what Congress can’t, or won’t, do. That’s a formula for completing the transformation of our nation from a republic governed by the rule of law, to an autocracy in which the rule of man – or, more accurately, one man – operates.
That’s not our Union, Mr. President.
