No one ever asked Obama what “fundamentally transforming” meant

In 2008, when the young, charismatic and charming junior Senator promised “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming America,” not a single person asked the question “from what to what?”

Those are two seminal questions I try to tackle in my book Guardian of the Republic because if our electorate continues to be poorly informed, then any smooth talking charlatan can come forth with poll-tested bumper sticker slogans and our Republic will fall to a “cult of personality.”

I hope my book will be seen as a clarion call for Americans to rediscover the greatness of our nation – at the very least, it will help you understand why I feel so fervently and passionately that what we have here needs to be protected and guarded. You can read an excerpt here.

I’ve just finished a whirlwind first two weeks out speaking and doing book signings for Guardian of the Republic. Tonight I’ll have my first local South Florida book signing at Deer Creek Country Club in Deerfield Beach Florida.

I’ve been so encouraged by all the people I’ve met over these past two weeks from NYC to Walla Walla, Washington from Fresno, California to the Valley Forge Military Academy and College in Pennsylvania. Americans are looking to reconnect with the essence of this Constitutional Republic and seek a brighter future.

It is amazing to me that we’re close to reaching the one million mark on Facebook, and our website has racked up over 16 million page views since we launched. I am so very humbled that so many Americans are interested in what this fella from the inner city of Atlanta has to say.

I hope you’ll check out my book as well, because I want to share my story, and most of all, I hope you’ll join me as a Guardian of the Republic.

And stay tuned for when I may be coming to your neighborhood. I’d be honored to sign your copy.

this topic was all about an advertising a book for sale they didn’t explain what Obama meant when he said a fundamental change was on the way. I feel robbed

After over five years of the son of Satan (and his minions from Hell) being in office, do you honestly need an explanation??

Trenton Craig
Guest

The son of satan? lol… you people are too much. What do you have to say that the markets are at their highest peaks since before he took office? That the unemployment numbers are slowly declining? That the budget deficit is slowly decreasing? This country is not anywhere close to economic collapse or communism. Get a grip.

The unemployment numbers are declining because loads of people have totally quit looking for work all together, and are not collecting unemployment…If those numbers were factored in, along with the number who have had to resort to part-time employment (as opposed to a full-time position), the rate would be somewhere in the 15-16% range…We still have the lowest number of employed Americans since the 1920’s. I’m just fearful for Obamacare’s business mandate to finally become law (actually it is law, just that Obama decided to postpone all the aspects of Obamacare that suck before the mid-term elections, in hopes that… Read more »

The robbery started after WW2 and significantly increased with Johnson. Now that they have their hand in your pocket (permanently) and their cameras in your home all they need now is a transmitter in your neck or wrist. Coming to every neighborhood very soon.

Nobody ever asked him?
Plenty of people have asked him what he meant by that statement.
Most recently, and in front of his largest audience ever, was Bill O’Reilly who asked him during his interview before the Superbowl two months ago.

Read the title of the article genius…

“No one ever asked Obama what ‘fundamentally transforming’ meant”

Can you understand that?
EVER… No one EVER

Read the first line of the article, genius back at ya and guess what it says?
Do you just read the article title and go no further?
What you suggest would make for a very long title that was already long enough.

As per the very first line of the article;

Maybe if the people asking what Obama meant actually showed what he said right before saying “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America” the context would show what he meant. But then again, showing that he was talking about reversing eight years of policy of the previous administration (a promise he did not keep) doesn’t sound as sinister as letting people imagine the worst. “I just have two words for you tonight: five days. Five days. After decades of broken politics in Washington, and eight years of failed policies from George W. Bush, and… Read more »

just look at who is putting in high offices, look and see what they vote on and what they stand for. obama doesn’t have to do the dirty work, he’s the proverbial MOB BOSS…HOLDER, REID, PELOSI AND A FEW REPUBLICANS LIKE MCCAIN HELP HIM ACHIEVE THESE GOALS….LOOK AT YOUR LOCAL LAWS AND SEE WHO IS RUNNING YOUR STATE….

Most people didn’t think he had a chance. What they didn’t know was that ACORN and like organizations had been groomed to steal the election with the dead and people voting many times by being bused from poll to poll by ACORN worker bees.

and ACORN IS NOT GONE, THEY JUST GO BY A DIFFERENT NAME AND IS FUNDED BY OBAMAS CAMPAIGN MONEY….

The_Patriot

He played people into believing his hope and change led to a better economy more people working, an end to a war they didn’t want. Instead what they got was his dream for a communist utopia. A global economy, A new world order and us as a divided up third world nation of brainless drones.

He got voted in by blacks, muslims, illegals and Americans that were uneducated about who he really is.

Patriot Sass
Guest

Don’t forget the dead people, the illegals and the many that were bused from precinct to precinct by the like of Cuba Gooding Jr. ACORN went through the precinct books and voted the dead and absent. They got photo I.D.’s for illegals. They got the votes that took the states that they needed. It is history.

delores001

don’t forget those darn DEAD people that voted and the ones that voted more than once if they were supposed to vote at all….this obama is a fraud and got into office thru fraud with george soros and his money and the owner of the voting machines we use, not to mention owning the company that COUNTS THE VOTES and in SPAIN no less…and with hillary, you get the same. She is anti american and hates the military….a radical hippie from the 60’s

He also got voted in (twice mind you) by EDUCATED Whites (who BTW continue to support him) for various reasnons.

Jeff Hahn
Guest

That’s an offensive and racist statement. It also smells a bit elitist as well. However I’m willing to concede if you agree that education has nothing to do with intelligence, made apparent by the educated whites who voted for him.

disisdadrum
Guest

No more offensive and racist than what the OP stated wouldn’t you say?

Don’t quite understand what you mean by “smells a bit elitist” though.

Yes, I do agree that education has nothing to do with intelligence. However, I should have said, “by whites educated about who he really is.”

Baltimore48

I think that most whites who voted for him did so solely because of his skin color. They wanted to be able to pat themselves on the back for being so liberal that they’d “even vote for a black man.” (White liberals don’t think that blacks can rise to the whites’ level on their own merits, so they need to baby them and help them along.) Dr. King should be rolling over in his grave. He wanted blacks and whites alike to be judged by their characters and accomplishments, not by their skin tone.

exactly right

Bob in Florida

I beg to differ!

That was exactly the question I asked the first time I heard him use the phrase.

Unfortunately, nobody who happened to be listening to this poor boy from Upstate New York (which was probably a total of one other person) paid any attention – or, at least, had any answer.

I’ve asked that same question innumerable times since – with the same response (crickets!!).

I suspect you will have better luck! You certainly have a more extensive audience

Guardian West openly and willingly explains his upbringing, his experiences and his views. All obama has ever done is shout out slogans like a cult leader passing around cups of poisoned koolaid.

Obama has done more…he has deliberately hidden his past by sealing all of his records. We know nothing about him other than what HE has chosen to state in his “autobiographies.”

This is what it means: the Cloward-Piven Strategy. It describes their agenda, tactics, and long-term strategy. The Strategy was first elucidated in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation magazine by a pair of radical socialist Columbia University professors, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. David Horowitz summarizes it as: The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse. Cloward and Piven were inspired by radical organizer [and Hillary Clinton mentor] Saul… Read more »

It’s amazing (well, unfortunately maybe not so amazing) that the mainstream media hasn’t plastered the news with information about Cloward-Piven and its current application by our (“never let a good crisis go to waste”) administration.

Don’t bother! He’s too brain challenged to see the facts. There are people that just don’t want to believe that “the first black president” is just the same as the rest of the haters that ruined every major city in this country. Anarchy is close at hand and it will be welcomed by the Alinsky lovers who believe that taking down the United States will solve all of the worlds problems and they will build Utopia out of the ashes.

Not one of you have provided concrete examples that tie Obama’s time in office to changes that have ruined this country put it on a concrete path towards any sort of ruin. The Cloward Piven strategy, according to the previous poster, requires the economy to go to ruin. The economy is so far from ruin! IT’s much better today, overall, than it was when his predecessor was in office. Astounding ignorance.

Excellent reply to Trenton, Patriot!
I’ll add one more to your list: The irresponsible printing of money, which has brought our economy to the brink of disaster while artificially propping up the stock market to make the ill-informed think that the economy is doing well.

I can not believe your ignorance….is it all about comfort for you. these scandals have obama written all over them, you would have to be braindead not to see it. as for not tying him to these scandals, he is the PRESIDENT not on a taxpayer holiday. he stays out off the white house so the dirty work doesn’t hit him directly. are you for real ??? your freedom will be taken just like the rest of us , the difference is I won’t be shocked…..glad I’m old enough to know what true freedom is. it’s not being a victim… Read more »

Way to assume I’m a victim and getting freebies. What scandals? this is another sweeping generalization without any actual incidents or links to back your story up. You act like the president is this ultimately powerful office that can completely bypass the supreme court AND the legislative branch. Last I checked, the power of the office of the president is pretty limited. So even if he did want to take our freedoms away, which is still a baseless accusation, he would have to go through congress…. TWO houses of hundreds of individuals who hold the power to write the laws,… Read more »

Just think about the fact that he does have his pen and his phone. He does sign one EO after another. He does have the Senate and most of the House touting his same line. He’s not the only one that believes in Communism. Just see how rich most of our elected reps become as soon as they get in office. Most of them run campaigns that cost millions. Who do you think pays for these campaigns? Why do you think the lobbyists (corporations and wealthy special interests) run the nation? They are all of the same cloth. The democrats… Read more »

What scandals? What planet have you been on the last 5 years? Benghazi, Fast & Furious, IRSgate. Not to mention this trainwreck of a law known as Obamacare. And that’s just a few.

What was scandalous about Benghazi? That they requested resources to staff the place and were denied by Congress? That, only for a short while, they mentioned it could have been due to the video before they corrected the story. That Ambassador Stevens didn’t take enough security precautions? That’s all Obama’s fault? Fast and Furious was a gamble and not a smart one. Not the only time something went wrong for a patient’s staffer. IRS gate? Did you think maybe there was good reason to scrutinize organizations with boat loads of cash, with political ambitions applying for tax exempt status? I… Read more »

disisdadrum

The key word in his statement was, fundamentally.
When he made this statement, it was clear as crystal to me what he meant.

All one has to do is, take a gander at his voting record (see link below) while a U.S. Senator in order to know what he is all about.
Note, he scores a dismal 17% on matters that pertain to the U.S. Constitution.
