This morning as I thumbed through the Texarkana Gazette (http://www.texarkanagazette.com/) I was shocked to learn that President Barack Obama had left the Democratic Party and joined the Republican Party! That’s right, in the ink, printed pages there is a small article about this huge change. I have heard of politicians changing parties, but I had never heard of a sitting president leaving his party.
This must have been a shock to many Democrats. Can you imagine being a Democrat right now and going into the November elections without Obama on your side? Well…uh….okay, maybe it was more of a relief to the Democrats. After all, for Republicans, Obama has been one of the biggest allies with the American public in years.
Since Obama became president, Republicans have begun a revival based almost completely on Obama’s policies. It seems that anytime the President opens his mouth on policies, Republicans are elected. Obama says something about gun control, and Republican candidates get elected on the local, state and national level. Obama forces healthcare on people, and Republicans get elected. Even when the President offers his views on international situations, Republicans get elected! It’s not just Republicans getting elected either….Obama is good for gun sales as well! Imagine owning a small gun store and selling ammunition. Over the last few years ammunition has been selling at alarming rates to public and private buyers. Often the President will make a statement about gun control, and the ammunition sweeps off the shelf! It would not be surprising to find that in some stores, Obama is credited with being the number one salesperson!
So the question has to become, do the Republicans really want Obama? Since he made this decision to leave the Democratic Party, we predict that Democrats may have sweeping victories in November. They will likely reclaim a solid majority in Congress. They will start immediate action to draft “Benghazi” Clinton as their number one choice to be the next president. They will quickly, and quietly, tell gun owners that it’s okay to have a gun and defend yourself. They will blame Obama for Obamacare, the Benghazi attack, and even the failing American economy all while pointing out that Obama’s “Republican” Platform, held as an Obama secret all these years, is the real reason America is failing as a nation. Yes, you can bet they are going to have a field day attacking Obama and the Republicans now. Naturally, their attacks will not be racially motivated….no, they will completely disagree with his policies and point out the failures of the policies while denying that race has anything to do with their stand against Obama. In the end, Republicans may not really want all the Obama baggage that comes with a President who now has lower approval ratings than some dictators have on the world stage.
Fortunately, the decision of Obama to leave the Democrats and bring his failed polices to the Republicans did not happen as the Gazette portrayed this morning. Happy April Fool’s Day! In a world where a President fails to stand up for Americans, fails to stand up for the American Military and his or her family, fails to stand up for American Business, and fails to ensure the protection of Americans around the world (Benghazi 2012) and fails to provide an American response when attacked, Republicans simply do not want Obama. Republicans want to see America move forward, not into an increasingly Socialist form of government from Obama which borders very closely to a form of Communism where all it takes is a pen and a phone to get your way.
