Obama, Manchurian Candidate

First off, let me say that I do not believe that Obama is a Manchurian Candidate.  However, if Hollywood created a movie about a Manchurian Candidate for President, intent on taking down the United States, a better script could not have been written than that of the Obama administration.  This op-ed from Bloomberg News explores that possibility, comparing what Obama is doing to what a hypothetical Manchurian candidate would do.  The results are telling.

Imagine that some hypothetical enemy state spent years preparing a “Manchurian Candidate” to destroy the U.S. economy once elected. What policies might that leader pursue?

He might discourage private capital from entering the financial sector by instructing his Treasury secretary to repeatedly promise a brilliant rescue plan, but never actually have one. Private firms, spooked by the thought of what government might do, would shy away from transactions altogether. If the secretary were smooth and played rope-a-dope long enough, the whole financial sector would be gone before voters could demand action.

The article then goes on to point out how all of Obama’s policies will wreak havoc on the U.S. financial system and prevent full recovery.  Obama may not be a Manchurian Candidate, but the liberal policies that he is proposing and enacting are just as damaging to the U.S. Economy as if he were.

Obama is the perfect Manchurian candidate! Why is it taking so long for him to be exposed? He is the perfect traitor. So many people who should know better voted for him. It is time every senator and every representative forgot about his/her pension and did something about this 0bamination. Or better yet, it is time we, the people cleaned out congress and vote every incumbent out of office.
