I wrote Saturday about the statement President Obama made about revenge. He was telling his supporters to make sure they voted, that voting was the best revenge. For all the talk about the Tea Party and how some just knew they would foster violence in our nation, it seems the liberals are the ones who are wanting revenge, not conservatives. There should be no more proof needed than the words of Obama’s most trusted adviser, Valerie Jarrett. If the rumors are correct that she is the real brains in the White House, that Obama follows her lead, then a second Obama term is a troubling proposition. Here is what she has told her staff. It’s a shame there is no recording of the conversation.
(The Ulsterman Report) The part that really stuck out to me was when I overheard the rep say that Jarrett told them, “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.” She was talking directly to about three of them. Sr. staff. And she wasn’t trying to be quiet about it at all. And they were all listening and shaking their heads and smiling while she said it. Pretty creepy.
If you will take the time to read the entire article, you will learn the report of the conversation in question came from a source that is working in the Obama campaign’s Chicago office. It was originally sent to the Wall Street Insider, who then forwarded it to The Ulsterman Report.
I have written before that politics is a rough and tumble sport. It is not for the faint of heart, which is why I only write about it, instead of participating directly in the process. However, the attitude that Valerie Jarrett seems to have, which is obviously passed down to Barack Obama, that those who oppose them will suffer the consequences for that opposition, is more than a little troubling. For a candidate who campaigned on the idea that he would bring Washington together, that he would be a post-partisan President, it is clear he meant not a word of that campaign theme.
This attitude clearly shows the stark differences between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Obama’s actions show him to be a man who thrives on keeping America divided. His words are lagging behind what he has done, but they are catching up. Mitt Romney, however, is trying to bring America back to a place where these divisions are not nearly as prominent. If he is elected, he will work to bring Americans together, in spirit and in deeds. If Obama wins, it seems he will be focused on punishing those who dare oppose his agenda.
The election is tomorrow. You must make your own choice and in so doing, you will help chart America’s course for the next four years. Which direction sounds better to you?
