"The wealthy, not only by private fraud but also by common laws, do every day pluck and snatch away from the people some part of their daily living. Therefore, when I consider and weigh in my mind these commonwealths which nowadays do flourish, I perceive nothing but a certain conspiracy of rich men in procuring their own commodities under the name and authority of the commonwealth.

They invent and devise all means and crafts, first how to keep safely without fear of losing that which they have unjustly gathered together, and next how to hire and abuse the work and labor of the people for as little money and effort as possible."

Boom, boom, bada-boom...

... so begins Team Obama's march to war on Iran. The following time-line is courtesy of Don Bacon over at ATR:

Mar 2, 2007. . .Obama: The world must work to stop Iran’s uranium enrichment program and prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons

National Intelligence Estimate, Dec 4, 2007 . . .. We judge with high confidence that in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program

IAEA Report, May 26, 2008: "The Agency has been able to continue to verify the non-diversion of declared nuclear material in Iran."

July 25, 2008 . .Democratic Sen. Barack Obama, nearing the end of a fast-paced international campaign trip, warned Iran today, "don't wait for the next president" to take office before yielding to Western demands to dismantle its nuclear weapons program. . .Iran poses "an extraordinarily grave situation." He said the world must send "a clear message to Iran to end its illicit nuclear program."

NPT: "Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with articles I and II of this Treaty."

Sep 6, 2008 ...Iran is a “major threat” and it would be “unacceptable” for the rogue nation to develop a nuclear weapon, Barack Obama said

IAEA Report, September 15, 2008: "The Agency has been able to continue to verify the non-diversion of declared nuclear material in Iran. Iran has provided the Agency with access to declared nuclear material and has provided the required nuclear material accounting reports in connection with declared nuclear material and activities."

Oct 2, 2008 . . .Obama: "The American people weren't just failed by a President - they were failed by much of Washington. By a media that too often reported spin instead of facts. . .I will always tell the American people the truth."

Nov 7, 2008 ... U.S. President-elect Barack Obama said in Chicago on Friday that Iran's development of nuclear weapons is unacceptable.

I don't know about any of you but I'm so loving the Prince of Hope and Change.

More of the same old, same old. Reminds me of the conversation the recently departed Patrick McGoohan had in his role as #6 in one of my all-time favorite shows, "The Prisoner."

#2: You are #6

#6: I am not a number, I am a free man.

#2: Six of one, a half dozen of the other.


Bush is the "six of one," Obama is "the half dozen of the other."

The more things change the more they remain the same. Also reminds me of my favorite Who song, "New Boss, Same as the Old Boss."

Yep, that about sums it up. At some point of course Obama's "liberal" supporters will come to the conclusion--a year late--that there's been no "change" at all.

"the magic negro"
-anon

A sad and tragically accurate assessment of what so many Libs have chosen to substitute for critical analysis when it comes to all things Obama. What's worse is that operators such as Rahm and Hillary are going to see to it that they will likely be the first to take it in the ass should they in any way impede the march of "responsible" American hegemony.
