Obama is perhaps the most divisive President in modern U.S. history. The country is in severe economic crisis -- history books will someday call this the Obama Great Depression. Yet our President doesn’t see fit to deal with the economy in general. He doesn’t make big announcements to save Americans in general. He doesn’t have a plan to create jobs for all Americans. Because for Obama it isn't about America...or the economy...or jobs. It's all about cold, hard, heartless politics.
Obama sees politics as divided by race. Everything he does is about division. Obama divides rich vs. poor (with his Buffett bill and proposed massive tax hikes on the rich), black vs. white (with his Trayvon comments), gay vs. straight (with his gay marriage announcement), women vs. men (with his demand that women receive free contraception from private insurers). And Obama’s newest “minority of the month announcement” was Friday’s policy aimed at illegal immigrants, particularly young Latinos.
Undocumented young immigrants will no longer face deportation under Obama. This cynical ploy comes only days before both Obama and Romney will be addressing one of the most important and high profile Latino organizations in the country -- the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials conference in Orlando.
To Obama this isn’t about saving the U.S. economy or restoring America’s place as the greatest nation in the world. It’s about pure cynical politics. It’s about doing anything, saying anything, offering any bribe in order to be re-elected. He desperately needs the next four years to finish what he started -- the destruction of capitalism, the demonization of the wealthy, the capitulation of the private sector.
But two can play at this game. In the interest of full disclosure, I am the Chairman of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee. This isn't an endorsement. I am making a recommendation as a political pundit, analyst, and strategist only. With that revelation out of the way, here is my unsolicited advice to Mr. Romney for how you put the election away…this week. If Presidential politics is a chess game, then it’s time to checkmate Obama. And the perfect place to do that is in Orlando at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials conference.
