Looking Backward, Not Forward

By The Reverend Published: September 16, 2010

President Barack Obama has stated repeatedly over the past 21 months that he prefers to "look forward, not backward", which meant, and still means, that he didn't, and still doesn't, want to bog down his presidency by illuminating the collossal failures and rampant criminality of the Republican leaders, Bush-Cheney.

This gracious gesture on Obama's part, not simply ignoring Bush era crimes but embracing them as his own by pro-actively covering them up, will be responded to in January 2011....and it won't be in kind.

Think back to the worst presidency in American history when a Democratic Congress led by Speaker Pelosi took impeachment of a Republican President Bush "off the table"? Remember that uniting-rather-than-dividing pragmatic gesture?

Well, Republicans remember too....and have no intentions of doing what Nancy Pelosi did. Instead, if Republicans take the Congress, everything is going to be on the table....

August 16, 2010....

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued a scathing staff report today......It charges the Obama administration with violating federal laws to advance what the Government Accounting Office has characterized as an unlawful "covert campaign," using federal resources "to activate a sophisticated propaganda and lobbying campaign."

Was this alleged "covert campaign" by Obama a "propaganda" campaign to lead our nation into a war of choice, hide torture, or lie about spying on all Americans illegally?

"The use of taxpayer dollars and federal employees to create an alliance whereby the NEA becomes the de facto strategic communications arm of the White House is unlawful," the report alleges. "Using a government e-mail account and government personnel and resources to host a call using artists and arts group to support the president's agenda is a clear violation of federal law."

May 26, 2010....

In an e-mail with the subject line "The Sestak Affair - Obama's Watergate?", the ranking member on the Oversight and Government Reform committee focused on "long-standing questions" about the offer (Joe) Sestak says was made to him to urge him to drop out of the Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary.

May 24, 2010.....the same corrupt media which helped to advance the impeachment of another Democratic President, Bill Clinton.....

May 26, 2010.....

In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder today, all seven Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee “urge the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Congressman Joe Sestak’s claim that a White House official offered him a job to induce him to exit the Pennsylvania Senate primary race against Senator Arlen Specter.”

June 15, 2010....Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN)...

[T]he thing is, here we are, people can't wait until November. They're practically lining up for polls now, they can't wait to go out and vote. The only thing is people wish Barack Obama was up for re-election right now, because they'd honestly love to have a chance to throw him out of office. Everywhere I go, people ask me, 'Michele, can we impeach the president?'

July 22, 2010.....Bachmann again....

"I think that all we should do is issue subpoenas and have one hearing after another, and expose all the nonsense that has gone on.

January 2010 poll of Republicans asking whether President Obama should be impeached , or not....

43% of Republican men said yes.
39% of all Republicans said yes.

While Obama has fought to keep us looking forward, not backward....the irony is that the conservative movement in America, assisted mightily by a corporately controlled and corrupt media, has been fighting to take America backwards. Not just looking backwards so we can learn from our mistakes, but looking backwards in order to take us backwards.

All the way back to the days of the contrived, embarassing and trivialized impeachment of President Bill Clinton, the days which kick started the now hopelessly divided nation that we have become, the days which led directly to the Bush-Cheney crimes that President Obama, still today, refuses to look backwards at.

Voting a few weeks from now to place Republicans into majority Congressional status would be comparable to holding Nero's fiddle for him while Rome burned to the ground.
