The former (and arguably present day) "community organizer," President Obama was (like Shrillary Clinton was) a devotee of Saul Alinsky and Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals." I believe it is fair and accurate to say that the Rules for Radicals were written for the radicals as outsiders. Its theme was how to get FROM or out of "THE MAN" the things the "community" supposedly needed or wanted. It looks to me like Alinsky never thought it all the way through. Apparently, neither did President Obama. If they had thought it through a bit further, they might have given some consideration to providing the roadmap to answer the question, "what do we radicals DO with the POWER we seek once we ARE 'THE MAN?'" President Obama wanted "power." He called it "hope and change," but that's malarkey. It was a quest primarily for obtaining power. And he won. He has his hands at the helm. So the question becomes, what does he do now? What does he DO with power once he has obtained it? The Rules for Radicals provide methods by which his power can be taken away from him; but it doesn't tell him how to use power or how to stop others from seeking to take it away from HIM! He is now (for better or for worse, and hopefully for just one term) "the man." Alinsky once scolded some of his students for not grasping that they were doing what they were doing for no other reason than to get POWER! But Alinsky didn't tell them what they should DO with it once obtained. Maybe this is why President Obama sometimes acts in a self-contradictory fashion, to the consternation of the liberoidals. What do you think?
