The Instapundit makes a strong case for Obama’s resignation in light of the supposed Leader of the Free world siding with homicidal totalitarian mobs against the First Amendment liberties he is sworn to defend:
Just for the record, this is what it looked like for a man who made a film that made the Obama Administration uncomfortable:
Here’s the key bit: “Just after midnight Saturday morning, authorities descended on the Cerritos home of the man believed to be the filmmaker behind the anti-Muslim movie that has sparked protests and rioting in the Muslim world.”
When taking office, the President does not swear to create jobs. He does not swear to “grow the economy.” He does not swear to institute “fairness.” The only oath the President takes is this one:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
By sending — literally — brownshirted enforcers to engage in — literally — a midnight knock at the door of a man for the non-crime of embarrassing the President of the United States and his administration, President Obama violated that oath. You can try to pretty this up (It’s just about possible probation violations! Sure.), or make excuses or draw distinctions, but that’s what’s happened. It is a betrayal of his duties as President, and a disgrace.
For political purposes, local sheriff’s deputies were used to drag Nakoula in for “questioning” instead of federal agents, but there is no question they were acting with the blessings if not on the direct orders of the Obama Regime, which has openly sided with the Muslim mobs that killed our ambassador by denouncing Nakoula’s insignificant movie and repeating the preposterous lie that it caused the Middle East to go up in flames.
When you consider the implications of Obama’s siding with Muslim terrorists against the US Constitution, Nixon resigned over far less. But lacking a sense of shame and highly unlikely to be moved by what is best for America, not only will Obama refuse to resign, he will very possibly be reelected by an alliance of the clueless and the vile.
No photo better summarizes what America is degenerating into than the iconic shot of the brownshirts’ midnight visit to Nakoula. A few sample captions for it, via PJ Media:
If we manage to pull the country out of its tailspin this November, this image will be remembered as the lowest point in our history. If not — and Obama is reelected — it will only be a foretaste of the nightmare to come. The higher you climb, the harder you fall — and America climbed to the very summit of human achievement, before liberalism rotted our souls away.
