What Obama Just Said To Sharpton Makes You Wonder…Does He Secretly Want A GOP Senate?

sharpton

Let’s start with a few “givens”:
* Barack Obama — as many, including Charles Krauthammer, have noted — is a narcissist;
* Democrat Senate candidates — including Allison Lundergan Grimes in Kentucky — are trying hard to keep their distance from an unpopular president;
* Obama keeps undermining those desperate distancing efforts.

A couple weeks ago, as Western Journalism reported, President Obama declared that, while he wasn’t on the ballot in the midterm elections, his policies were. And as predicted, GOP candidates soon launched ads using that comment to tie his or her Democratic opponent to a president whose approval ratings have been sinking fast.

And now, in an interview with MSNBC’s Al Sharpton, Obama appears to have done it again — handed Republican ad makers more powerful ammunition for political spots that shoot down the notion of Democrats’ distance from a toxic party leader.

Essentially, Obama tells Sharpton — and the Rev. Al tells the world — that Obama and his allies running for Senate seats in tough races are hiding the truth and fooling voters.

The president tells Sharpton what he supposedly told the candidates who he claims truly stand with him on all major issues: “you do what you need to do to win.”

For a president so many supporters argue is smart and savvy and politically astute, this kind of double-down move linking himself to Democrats clearly trying to uncouple their campaigns from Obama’s policies — this sort of apparent sabotage raises a reasonable question:

Does Barack Obama really want the Republicans to win control of the Senate?

At first blush, this question might seem ludicrous…but take a moment to ask yourself:

Would GOP control of Capitol Hill give Obama the excuse he wants to justify a two-year blitz of executive orders? A non-stop barrage of executive actions he could say are necessary to counter GOP resistance to continuing “hope and change?”

WATCH: Low-Information Voters Share Their Off-The-Wall Ideas About Obama And Ebola

Watters

Seriously, Ebola is hardly a laughing matter…unless….

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the cases and concern here at home, and the resulting apprehension around the world have flooded the news with near-constant coverage. It’s hard to imagine that anyone paying any amount of attention to current events would not have at least a basic awareness of the disease and its deadly consequences.

In fact, a brand new poll cited by NBC News finds:

Forty-five percent of Americans are concerned that they or a family member will contract Ebola, and a majority – 63 percent – are worried that the U.S. will see a large number of Ebola cases in the next year, according to a poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation.

And yet, when Fox News’ Jesse Watters took to the streets of New York City to hear what folks think about Ebola, what he was told doesn’t give you much comfort in hoping that facts provide a foundation for people’s/voters’ opinions.

Obama’s Ebola Magnet: Make Africans US Citizens!

obamaorders

Obama seems bent on fanning the flames of Ebola infections in the United States, but why? As his mentors Saul Alinsky and Rahm Emmanuel said, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” Alinsky, in his book “Rules for Radicals,” urged radicals to become community organizers to overload welfare and other systems to such a degree that a Constitutional Republic can no longer function and will have convert into a Socialist State.

As if we didn’t have enough problems already from all the insane liberal systems already implemented and overloading our government, now Obama has put into position a huge new magnet to draw in thousands of illegal immigrants from Liberia, Sierra Leon, and Guinea. He has granted squatters rights to existing foreign nationals from these three Ebola-plagued nations to stay in the United States indefinitely.

Many had short term visas and were due to return to their countries, but Obama is now extending them and expediting their approval to become U.S. citizens so that they don’t have to return to their Ebola-ravished countries.

While on the surface that may sound noble, think about it. By granting accelerated citizenship to foreign nationals from the biggest Ebola stricken nations in the world, he is just daring the rest of their friends and family members to get into the United States anyway they can, including traveling to Mexico so they can walk across the intentionally porous Southern border. And once these West Africans arrive, they get immediate expedited citizenship–regardless if they come in with Ebola.

Talk about setting up what may be the most powerful, irresistible immigration magnet ever; who could resist? Would you rather stay in a 3rd world country that is turning virtually everyone away from their hospitals? Or would you hightail it to the good ol’ US of A? You know, the land of milk and honey–and free Ebola care–compliments of the American taxpayer who used to work two jobs to support our bloated welfare state–but who now may need to work three jobs to fund welfare payouts including hospitalization for incoming new unemployed U.S. citizens.

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying Obamacare has failed so badly that he’s reached such a point of desperation that he needs to import foreign nationals to buy Obamacare, but he might be flying in foreign nationals to get free Obamacare–as long as they vote Democrat.

And speaking of creating millions of newly minted Democrats, Obama has added a special expedited citizenship designation for special classes of people, as listed on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services web site including students who are experiencing severe economic hardship.

And immigration petitions for immediate relatives. Hello? There are many West Africans with huge families. This alone is a mega game changer. Why is this happening? Or the bigger question might be, why is virtually no one putting up any opposition to this new ‘hope and change’ Obama is handing out to everyone other than existing employed U.S. citizens? You know, us working ants who are required to pay for all of Obama’s mischief.

Awkward: What Obama’s Admin Just Did Proves They Don’t Believe What He Says About Ebola

Photo Credit: site:.gov

Obama recently announced to Americans that “you cannot get it [Ebola] from just riding on a plane or bus.”

However, the day before, a bus was quarantined in DC in an Ebola false alarm.

The bus was carrying Marines and family members from the Pentagon to the Marine Barracks on Capitol Hill. A woman boarded the bus and went into the restroom. Shortly, thereafter, she left the bus, vomited, and collapsed. The woman also indictated that “she had recently visited Africa,” according to a Defense Department spokesman.

The South Parking Lot of the Pentagon was shut down, the bus was quarantined, and the lady was brought to Inova Fairfax Hospital.

Later that day, officials announced that the lady did not have Ebola.

This isn’t the first time that Obama said you can’t get Ebola on a bus. Three weeks earlier, he said you “cannot get [Ebola] through casual contact, like sitting next to someone on a bus.”

What do you think? When will Obama’s comments on Ebola start squaring with reality?
