Obama vows to push progressive plans ‘by hook or by crook’; ‘I’ll take crook,’ Twitter answers

President Obama is actually bragging about doing whatever it takes to ram his progressive agenda through, even if it means working around – or outside – the law.

In an interview with the liberal Huffington Post website on Friday, Obama said he’ll keep on doing whatever it takes – “by hook or by crook” – to transform the country into the progressive dream his liberal base is clamoring for.

It doesn’t matter that the Senate went from Democrat to Republican in the 2014 midterms – a clear repudiation of the policies Obama himself insisted were on the ballot even if he wasn’t.

Obama claims he listens to the people who don’t vote, remember? And he hears exactly what he needs to hear. And everything he hears is an excuse for furthering progressive goals.

“By hook or by crook, we’re going to make sure that when I leave this office, that the country is more prosperous, more people have opportunity, kids have a better education, we’re more competitive, climate change is being taken more seriously than it was, and we are actually trying to do something about it,” he said.

“Those are going to be the measures by which I look back and say whether I’ve been successful as president.” Fortunately, in the final two years of the Obama administration, the thinking part of America isn’t buying it.

Well, that’s probably overstating the case a bit. A truly successful Communist leader counts his victims by the corpse — and the corpses by the millions. So far, Obama’s just been counting by the trillions of dollars wasted.

More or less.
