The tenth rule of the ethics of rules and means is that you do what you can with what you have and clothe it in moral arguments. …the essence of Lenin’s speeches during this period was “They have the guns and therefore we are for peace and for reformation through the ballot. When we have the guns then it will be through the bullet.” And it was. ~ SAUL ALINSKY
Update, 16:47: “The government we have is not the government we need,” Big Government Obama told business owners gathered at the White House today. Obama added, ” it’s got to change.” This was in reference to his trumped up goal of combining the commerce and trade agencies to streamline the government into a sleeker, smaller, smarter government. I love how Obama pretends he had nothing to do with the government becoming overly large.
Fact is, Obama doesn’t need a trade or commerce agency because there won’t be any trade and commerce soon. Obama can outsource everything though he claims to want insourcing.
Why doesn’t he simply have the EPA, USDA, NEA, and EEOC take over the entire government – that’s really all he needs. Of course the Center for American Progress could become an agency.
Are people going to fall for this or look at Obama’s three year record – please tell me people are going to look at this record.
Original Story, 8:46: Obama wants to play the small government guy by asking Congress to allow him (he’s not using Executive Orders??) to combine the Commerce and Trade Agencies in the interest of streamlining and shrinking government. Read here: Obama wants leaner, meaner government
In all, he wants to shrink 6 agencies. He requests this as he grows agency after agency and gives unprecedented powers to Czars. When he wants to do something the Congress won’t like, he simply writes out an Executive Order, but all of a sudden, on this issue, he is following the Constitution.
You know, sometimes Obama really is transparent. Forgive me if Alinsky comes to mind and not Reagan.
