Keyes: Hey, America! Who Loves Ya, Baby?

I am reminded of the scene from some television comedy I once saw. After many unsuccessful contrivances, an unfaithful wife, determined to eliminate her arrogantly unsuspecting husband, finally manages to deliver what appears to be a fatal blow.

Wising up at last, his eyes wide with surprise and shock, her husband gasps, “Does this mean you don’t love me anymore?”

Enter Rudy Giuliani, supposedly speaking for America’s wounded feelings, letting us know that Obama doesn’t love America. Yet it says something deeply uncomplimentary about America’s leadership during this era of purposely induced decline that a well-known star in the GOP’s firmament has taken this long to get less than halfway to the truth about Obama.

I say halfway because, like the unfaithful spouse in the slapstick comedy, Obama has approached the task of bringing American down with studied ingenuity. Nothing that contributed to our success has escaped his destructive efforts. Refusing seriously to address the issue of his eligibility for office, he quietly sneered at the authority of the Constitution’s words. Seeking to confer voting privileges on the D.C. delegate in Congress, (which the Constitution explicitly withholds), he waved off another constitutional provision. Seeking to usurp Congress’ oversight of the decennial Census, he sought to poison the electoral root of its independent representation of the people.

In the years since then, his repeated tyrannies and usurpations have induced every symptom of pious outrage from GOP leaders, but little effective resistance. Even now, they are doing their best to make sure Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders on illegal immigration move forward unhindered. They are also working to pass a new international trade agreement that will increase his power to negotiate and implement policies that sell out America’s economic potential.

There's lots more here..
