Washington Must Be Rolling Over!

Was anyone else as disgusted as I was when President Obama stood in front of the portrait of George Washington and tried to justify his violation of a campaign promise, and a violation of our constitution?  Not sure what I am talking about?  Well let me explain.

First off, George Washington did not want to be President, but he was called by the people to do it.  He reluctantly served because he felt it was his duty to the people.  Now, remember, when he was President there was no limit on the number of terms a President could serve, and many people wanted him to be President for life, but Washington did not want to be king (that is how he saw it if someone were President for life.)  He declined the salary that the constitutional congress voted for him, but finally relented because they were afraid that it would set a precedent that only the wealthy could serve as President (ahhhh the irony).  He declined many noble titles that were presented for the office, saying that Mr. President would be fine.  He did not want anything to appear royal.  He was our only non-party President, believing that political parties would be the undoing of this country (wow, smart guy, wonder where they went?)  Washington was the model of the type of President that everyone should want.  Honest, moral, selfless, honorable, words that are never associated with a politician today.

Now, our President, Barack Obama stood in front of a portrait of that great man, and proved to the American people that he is not honest, has no morals, isn’t selfless, and has no honor.  Here is Obama telling people that he will uphold the constitution, and believes that one branch should not have too much power (coincidentally he also talks about signing statements, which he promised not to do but did.)  So, when congress does not pass a bill to start a commission on debt, the President both violates the constitution, and the separation of powers, and issues an executive order to do just that.

Mr. President (Washington) must be rolling over in his grave.

  1. Excellent comments about the current state of affairs in our country. People who read history and have rediscovered George Washington see why he was “first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”

    Here’s what Winston Churchill had to say about George Washington: “George Washington holds one of the proudest titles that history can bestow. He was the Father of his Nation.” No doubt Winston Churchill looked back on Washington’s example to inspire him during the darkest days of WWII.

  2. Too true. Imagine a candidate today, stepping up and saying he wanted to lead as Washington did, and truly meant it.
