Barack Obama - #4118 - Roger Hedgecock: "Chicago Values Wrecking America" - Human Events (2) Charles Krauthammer: The Case Against Reelection - Washington Post

Mayor Rahm Emanuel declared that “Chicago Values” did not include traditional marriage and that Dan Cathy, the CEO of Chick-Fil-A, advocating for “biblical marriage” was not welcome in Chicago. That statement must have come as quite a surprise for the hundreds of thousands of Chicago heterosexual married couples. Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, Bill Daley, Valerie Jarrett, and Mr. and Mrs. Obama brought their “Chicago Values” to Washington and the country has never been the same since. If there was a cultural, economic, or political trend taking the country in the wrong direction, Obama and his Chicago Values have accelerated that trend. Chicago Values includes revoking the First Amendment right of the Catholic Church by mandating the inclusion of morally repugnant “coverage” in health insurance for employees of Church affiliated hospitals, community centers, schools, and orphanages. Catholics in private life are affected too. Hercules Company in Colorado won an injunction against Obamacare because the First Amendment protects the American citizen from being forced by the Federal Government to act contrary to moral belief. Hercules has a health plan for its employees but objected to the inclusion of coverage for abortion inducing drugs. Chicago Values also includes lying. Obama repeatedly promised that Obamacare would save money. ........... These Chicago values are shredding our Constitution, exploding the federal debt, inserting big government into every facet of our lives, subverting the vote, bloating the welfare rolls, killing the opportunity society and replacing it with crony capitalism. Chicago Values is a cancer that has metastasized to every corner of the country. And all this happened in just the first term.  Read more........

Charles Krauthammer - The Case Against Reelection - Washington Post - There are two ways to run against Barack Obama: stewardship or ideology. You can run against his record or you can run against his ideas. The stewardship case is pretty straightforward: the worst recovery in U.S. history, 42 consecutive months of 8-plus percent unemployment, declining economic growth — all achieved at a price of an additional $5 trillion of accumulated debt. The ideological case is also simple. Just play in toto (and therefore in context) Obama’s Roanoke riff telling small-business owners: “You didn’t build that.” Real credit for your success belongs not to you — you think you did well because of your smarts and sweat? he asked mockingly — but to government that built the infrastructure without which you would have nothing. Play it. Then ask: Is that the governing philosophy you want for this nation? The ideological case, on the other hand, is not just appealing to a center-right country with twice as many conservatives as liberals, it is also explanatory. It underpins the stewardship argument. Obama’s ideology — and the program that followed — explains the failure of these four years.  Read more.........
