Is President Obama Out Of His Mind? Or Is It An Internet Hoax (See Update)?

Published by at 4:55 pm under All General Discussions

It seems President Obama is probably as sane as his home state Governor – Rod Blagojevich. It has been a tradition in this country for its officers and military to take an oath to protect the constitution, the instrument by which We The People execute our rights and power.

It seems President Obama wants to do away with that oath and now replace it with an oath to protect his highness, The Messiah Obama:

A spokesman for General James Cartwright, the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, states that the Obama Administration wants to have soldiers and officers pledge a loyalty oath directly to the office of the President, and no longer to the Constitution.

“The oath to the Constitution is as old as the document itself.” the spokesman said, “At no time in American history, not even in the Civil War, did the oath change or the subject of the oath differ. It has alwaysbeen to the Constitution.”

The back-and-forth between the White House and the Defense Department was expected as President George W. Bush left office. President Obama has already signed orders to close Guantanamo and to pull combat troops from Iraq. But, this, say many at the Defense Department, goes to far.

“Technically, we can’t talk about it before it becomes official policy.” the spokesman continued. “However, the Defense Department, including the Secretary, will not take this laying down. Expect a fight from the bureaucracy and the brass.”

Sources at the White House had a different point of view. In a circular distributed by White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, the rationale for the change was made more clear.

“The President feels that the military has been too indoctrinated by the old harbingers of hate: nationalism, racism, and classism. By removing an oath to the American society, the soldiers are less likely to commit atrocities like those at Abu Ghraib.”

I believe this is how Adolph Hitler started, when he became the embodiment of Germany and his views were the law – above anyone else’s. This is scary stuff.

Update: I had my doubts when this first came up in my comments section, and I still think it may be a hoax. For what it is worth here is the reactions from the left – where some claim this started as satire and then became fodder for the gullible. I would really like to find out and I hope it is false. It wouldn’t bother me in the least to have been stung by an internet rumor, compared to the alternative.

If this is a hoax, the liars should be exposed so their reputations can be properly sullied.

Update: Smooth move by the blogger.  The last tag on the post is ‘satire’. Ah, cheap hits!

    There was a moment or two where I thought you were an honorable and intellectually reasonable person. The past week has shown me that you are not – the fact that you will not adjust the title of this post to show that it is clearly and indisputably a hoax shows your true nature.

    This week has also shown that your commenters are the very embodiment of charicatures of right-wing nutjobs – they think that half of the country “loves terrorists”, because they are against the idea of torturing people. They refuse to accept the fact that anything in the past eight years might possible be the fault of the Bush Administration. Some of them actually put forth the idea that community organizers are the most powerful economic force in the country, and are responsible for the global economic crisis we are in.

    They are parodies of themselves. They don’t even need me to point out their own flaws – they keep posting them themselves. You all have watched the fallout from the last two election cycles, and somehow convinced yourselves that the way back to political prominence is to keep following the message of George W. Bush. Somehow, you are unable to grasp the idea that Bush is the VERY REASON you are in politically irrelevant position you find yourself in today.

    Enjoy your irrelevance. Enjoy your echo chamber.

    And AJ – enjoy your reduced page views, and your single digit comment threads. Feel free to ban me after this comment, because I won’t be coming back.

    You all seem to be happier that way. Slainte.

    I don’t rewrite history. The post and its title clearly show I fell for the hoax until I figured it out. It stands as an ACCURATE representation.

    And this is my blog and I make the rules. One rule – don’t insult your host or your banned.

    Are we clear? This is your only warning, next infraction you are gone.

    If you have self banned yourself in a fit of self absorption – thanks for saving me the trouble.

    Obama probably consulted with his pal Chavez — LOL. As that is what he did.

    But I’m pretty sure you figured it out, correctly, it’s a hoax.

    Although, keep your eyes open for Odinga to show at the White House …
