Sowell: Obama's Turning this Country Into a Banana Republic

Truth.

When Obama was offered the authority to make the spending cuts wherever he chooses, anywhere in the government's multi-trillion dollar budget, it was the only power that this power-grabbing president has rejected.

Why? Because with this new power would go responsibility for the consequences of his choices. And responsibility for consequences is precisely what both the Obama administration and the Senate Democrats have been avoiding for years, by refusing to pass a federal budget, as required by the Constitution of the United States.

...
If Obama succeeds in maneuvering the Republicans into positions that cause them to lose control of the House of Representatives in the 2014 elections, then as a president who never has to face the voters again, he would be in an ideal position to create a big spending liberals' heaven.

But it will be far from heaven for the economy, with Obama-appointed bureaucrats burying businesses in red tape and job-killing costs, while expanding the size and arbitrary powers of government. We could become the world's largest banana republic.

Obama has three aspects which make the path of the tyrant likely:

1. He has a monstrous narcissism and actively encourages a pseud-religious passion in his followers.

2. He's a socialist, and therefore believes in the totalizing power of government and politics.

3. He's incompetent, and therefore can never solve a crisis and bring a situation into a stable state. Instead, we simply move from one crisis to another.

All these work horribly well together. An incompetent socialist's reaction to failure is, of course, more socialism. A socialist who already believes in the untrammeled power of government and politics is even a bigger believer when he conceives of himself as a near-god.

Obama's Main Goal: Taking Over Congress. Change We Can Believe In turns out to be about little but political power.

Old Washington hands have been scratching their heads about the start of President Obama's second term, with its aggressive liberal priorities and attacks on Republicans. Whatever happened to governing? Well, the answer arrived this weekend as the Washington Post reported that Mr. Obama's real plan for the next two years is returning Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker in 2014.


"The goal is to flip the Republican-held House back to Democratic control, allowing Obama to push forward with a progressive agenda on gun control, immigration, climate change and the economy during his final two years in office, according to congressional Democrats, strategists and others familiar with Obama's thinking," reports the Post, which is hardly hostile to the President.
