Obama fatigue fuels fighting spirit

April 27th, 2012 · No Comments

Are you tired of Barack Obama yet? I’m not suggesting mere exasperation with his misguided policies, his warped worldview, his utter disregard for mounting debt, or his contempt for the Constitution and our founding principles.

I’m not referring only to his reviling race baiting, class warfare pandering and overall campaign of deception.

We know that millions of Americans had had enough of Obama by the end of January 2009. Like prison inmates, we wanted to wake up and discover the nightmare was over. But the walls kept closing in, obscuring sunlight, and crushing our spirits. And millions upon millions more have joined us, dreaming of the America we once knew, only to be jolted back to reality with the dawn of every tedious day - 1,193 as of Friday.

When I think about how weary I am in this Age of Obama, I think about the down-to-the-bone fatigue, the constant aching that begins in my heart and radiates down my spine. It is supposed to be crippling, like a chronic illness. It is intended to breed hopelessness (hope is for bumper stickers).

Wow, you say, this is one angry Conservative on a rant here. You would be wrong. This is the Obama playbook, borrowed from radicals like Saul Alinsky. They think they can beat us down, grind us into irrelevance, and render us borderline mad.

I reject that. Acknowledging my weariness is not weakness, I am not hinting at eventual surrender. Quite to the contrary, this is the time to reach deep and plan the escape. This is when we must channel American soldier Louis Zamperini, the “unbroken” World War II hero who endured incomprehensible physical battering at the hands of Japanese prison camp officers.  Louis survived a plane crash into the vast Pacific. He survived years as a prisoner of war. Today, at 95, Louis is going strong.

Now is the time to embrace the words of patriot Martin Treptow.  His diary was found on a French battlefield after he lost his life in service to his country in World War I. Ronald Reagan honored Treptow in his 1981 inaugural address. The words this young soldier from Kansas scribbled in the front leaf of a small booklet are remarkable. He was a small town boy, far from home, overwhelmed no doubt by the magnitude of the challenge ahead. He was but one man on a massive battlefield.

I am sure he was weary, tired, and prone to moments of despair. But young Treptow fixated on the goal. He was spent physically but emotionally girded.

He wrote, “America must win this war. Therefore, I will work, I will save, I will sacrifice, I will endure, I will fight cheerfully and do my utmost, as if the issue of the whole struggle depended on me alone.”

I am weary of Barack Obama, of his refusal to lead our nation, of his endless campaigning, his constant re-messaging, his exploitation of contraception, student loans, Medicare and Trayvon Martin.

I am deeply troubled by Obama’s delusional vice president, Joe “Big Stick” Biden. I am worried that Obama’s absolute negligence on foreign policy and homeland security makes us vulnerable. I am enraged by Obama’s deliberate efforts to impede our nation’s emergence as the world’s leader in oil and natural gas exploration and production.

Are you like me, are you furious about reports that an Obama campaign web site is naming the names of Romney donors as targets? As noted by Kimberley Strassel in the Wall Street Journal, “Any giver (to Mitt Romney for President) risks reprisal by the president of the United States.”

Can you feel the blood in your veins begin to bubble when Obama appears with comedian Jimmy Fallon to advance his bogus student loan “freeze”, allowing Fallon to flippantly address the 44th President as “the Barack-ness Monster”. (He’s half-right).

As a writer to the Journal’s letters to the editor noted this week, there was not an Alex Hamilton, a Tommy Jefferson, a Jimmy Madison. But here in 2012, Fallon is on camera with Obama, addressing him as “the Preezy of the United Steezy.”

Had enough yet? There are two choices. We can cower in the foxhole, resigned to our demise. Or we can rise to the occasion and meet the moment that destiny has planned for us. We can, like Martin Treptow, stand up and say, “Choose me!” We can will ourselves to carry the message along the battle lines, dodging enemy fire, sprinting toward the goal, undeterred.

I am very tired, friends, but I “will endure”, and I “will fight”, as if “the whole struggle depended on me alone.”

Join me.
