How do defenders of the rule of law, of the Constitution itself, adjust and implement new defensive plays?
Step One: recognize why Obama behaves like he does. He is a militant radical progressive. That’s why Michelle Malkin was right when she told Mitt Romney to stop calling Obama a nice guy. Barack Obama has been brutal to American ideals and the founding principles of the nation. It isn’t nice to unravel the things that built and sustained this country.
Why would Obama swap five violent jihadists for one U.S. solider? Here are some relevant facts.
Bergdahl emailed his parents from his Army unit in Afghanistan, writing:
I am sorry for everything here. These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid.
Soften a few words, and it sounds like Obama running for president in 2007. Bergdahl also wrote this:
I am ashamed to be an American. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools. … I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting. (emphasis added)
If you think that tweets like this are a terribly inconvenient embarrassment to the Obama administration, you still don’t get it.
You are still sending in the same defensive play. The craziness represented by Robert and Bowe Bergdahl is why the United States overpaid for his release. It is why Obama broke the law to make all the wrong people happy.
Step Two: stop calling the same defensive play. The GOP has to go Bill Belichick on Obama — the Patriots coach is the master of in-game adjustments; he doesn’t call the same defensive play over and over and over. If Belichick were in charge, he wouldn’t keep yelling about Obama breaking the law, wouldn’t keep sending another Strongly Worded Letter.
Instead, he’d do what Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) has done.
He’d start cutting money. He’s start withholding funds from prized Obama policy areas. He’d mine the Constitution for other weaponry (hint: impeach lesser officials).
Belichick wouldn’t keep sending in the same play to the defense: Shock and Outrage 44 Right Letter to Follow Slant.
It’s time to adjust. The Bergdahl swap should illustrate to anyone who wasn’t paying attention that law no longer matters to this crowd. As long as you have enough leftist Ivy League lawyers at the DOJ to dream up new excuses and to rebrand lawlessness as legal, Obama has all the offensive weapons he needs to fundamentally transform America. It’s time for a new defensive play.
