American candidates for president have a predictable trajectory. They begin by telling the party troops that they are really coming from the honest-to-gosh right or left, and then they move steadily toward the great fuzzy middle, so that by election time they end up sounding like Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dee.

But Obama has been going off the standard script -- most recently by attacking capitalism in radical terms. Namely, "If you've got a business -- you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."

Democratic senators are reportedly "horrified" by Obama's behavior.

Last week, an Obama surrogate was accusing Mitt Romney of being a felon.

This is a new low in presidential hardball politics -- at least since LBJ accused Barry Goldwater of wanting to explode nuclear weapons on little girls picking daisies.

Ben Shapiro of Breitbart reports the following Obama transcript:

Is any of this (use of tax havens) actually illegal?

It appears not, but it's impossible to know for sure because Romney refuses to release enough information to let people make their own judgments.

Writes Shapiro:

... Last time I checked, ... there is a presumption of innocence[.] But Obama needs no evidence. He just needs innuendo.

"And when did you stop beating your wife?" to quote the old legal joke. But this is not a joke.

If Breitbart is right, the Obama campaign is actually raising money in China -- quite possibly from non-U.S. citizens, since its controls are lax. Not a legal move, even if it's ignored by the Federal Election Commission.

The Obama campaign may be committing felonies while accusing others of being felons. Hardball politics isn't new, but crazy hardball tends to be self-defeating. It reflects rage and desperation rather than cold calculations. Obama now seems to be playing crazy ball.

In 2008, Obama ran as a messianic figure, come to bring peace and love to earth. But in 2012 he is tearing off the mask bequeathed by Saul Alinsky and his other radical left mentors.

I think there might be two reasons. First, Obama really is an ideological radical -- there's no honest doubt about it anymore, given his expressed anti-capitalist and anti-constitutionalist views, his solid phalanx of radical associates throughout life, and his repeated assault on everyday Americans. And while Obama is the most convincing liar since Bill Clinton, he has essentially given up on hiding his radicalism.

That is hugely important.

A second reason why Obama seems to be wandering off script is his genuine rage and anger toward those who dissent from his radical orthodoxy. Early in his administration, Obama gave one of those televised White House seminars on the economy. Congressman Paul Ryan was there, and instead of listening obediently, the way Republicans are supposed to, he presented a clear and articulate argument against federal overspending. Obama was caught unprepared, and right there on live TV, he suddenly looked enraged. That used-car salesman smile was gone. For a moment, we could see the man behind the Carteresque grin. He didn't look kind and compassionate.

You can bet that Vladimir Putin and Hu Jin Tao played and replayed that clip over and over again to see the real Obama. All the novice KGB thugs are being trained on this one.

(Look at this photo of Obama's soulmate, Elizabeth Warren, and you can see the identical rage.)

The Daily Kos loves this collectivist Obama stuff. But the Kosovars are already in his back pocket. Why is Obama echoing the mad-dog left three and a half months before November?

One reason could be money. The Great O is far behind his money-raising record from 2007 and 2008. But in 2008, Obama kept his real feelings for the private delight of behind-the-scene fund-raisers.

Right now Obama's denial of business achievements is on the White House website (above). Americans who don't hate business (70-80 percent) are not comfortable with those words. If the people in the Romney campaign are smart, they'll run that one over and over toward November. Add a few occupistas running wild in business districts around the country, and they will add Obama's smiling endorsement of those idealistic kids, just to hammer the point home. Obama is his own worst enemy.

In emotional terms, Obama and Warren are "leaking" their real feelings while trying to cover them up. Popular narcissists can be devastatingly nice and charming, until they run into opposition. Then their real feelings leak out.

In his heart of hearts, President O is always enraged at the American people -- those bitter clingers -- but this time it's personal. Gone is the smiling messiah, and in his place we see a persecutory personality, a real witch-hunter who may lose the election but won't pass up a chance to scourge this country with the whip of righteousness, to tell us what he really thinks. Under the smiling mask, Obama is Rev. Jerry Wright.

By Labor Day, when all the football fans and SUV moms take their eyes of the TV, they will see it, too.

If Obama doesn't hammer his rage and anger home to the voters, Romney should do it for him. This is self-destructive strategy. You don't end a campaign by ranting at the voters.

Obama is not a conventional politician. For sure, he loves the trappings, Air Force One, the chance to finally lord it over other people. But Obama is dyed-in-the-wool ideologue. In the last four years he's changed everything except his deeply embedded beliefs. America is still the real enemy.

Obama has become Jimmy Carter, who's gotten more and more stuck in trying to justify his catastrophic policies from 30 years ago.

Jimmy Carter is still trying to be president. Emotionally, he can't come to terms with his defeat in 1978. That's why he can't leave the public stage, or stop defending his defeatist policies toward the most hardened enemies of this country.

If Obama is defeated in this election, chances are that he will become another Jimmy Carter -- a "bitter clinger" if ever there was one.

The left has always thought long-term. Radical leftism is a utopian ideology, not a normal American political party. The left wants to turn America upside-down -- the original meaning of "revolution," from Copernicus' book on the rotation (revolving) of the earth

So far, America is still rightside-up, but Obama won't stop if he is defeated. On the contrary. To keep his stuck beliefs intact, Obama will have to redouble his missionary efforts.

If that happens, Obama the "bitter clinger" will haunt the Democratic Party 'til the end of his days.

Which would be a kind of poetic justice.

    Obama, is reverting to kind. He is hard nosed communist leader who is acting out the standard communist role play on silencing the opposition accuse your opponents of being criminals and corrupt. In Russia , China, North Korea you would have them arrested and slung into a prison and left to rot until you are forgotten about. Then you simply disappear them and they are never seen nor heard of ever again.

    The problem for Obama is, that American politics are not Russian or Chinese nor North Korean......It is American politics and every decent Americans would never tolerate a totalitarian Dictatorship in any guise. Not even an Obamian Dictatorship.

    Obama's narcissistic rage may be showing a bit more than usual, but that's just a personal quirk, and it doesn't mean he's some unprecedented socialist ideologue in opposition to the political status quo. He's a sociopathic puppet, just like Romney, who worships at the altar of power. They both represent different but complementary perspectives on how and where it should primarily be abused and emphasize different areas, but their opposing rhetoric masks how fundamentally similar they are in an ideological sense.

    Slowly, the left and right are both being dragged toward unlimited statism through different routes. That's why Democratic rhetoric appears more socialist to conservatives and Republican rhetoric appears more fascist to liberals every election. The conservative base knows that Obama's rhetoric is radically different from what they believe in, but the exaggerated differences in rhetoric blind them to the reality that Romney is in favor of the same unlimited state power (just to be used differently in the immediate future), and that the Republicans and Democrats have both been complicit in bringing us to this precipice.

    Lately, obama has been talking off the cuff more often than usual. And it's such a contrast to the man who stands before the lectern and reads ghost written speeches off the teleprompter with great finesse.

    obama at lectern

    I've come to think of him as TWO separate people. The real obama can't actually think out what he wants to say. It comes out jumbled. He himself sputters, ohs, ahs, uhs, er's....it's painful to watch.

    Obama's thought process suddenly occurred to me. Consider this little gem:

    "If you've got a business -- you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."

    "Somebody else" is the government. In Obama's mind, only government can create success. This explains why so much stimulus money was spent to avoid layoffs of government workers (teachers, police, firefighters, etc.) Clearly, his plan was to stimulate government and that would somehow lead to a stimulated economy. It's "trickle-down economics", with government at the highest level. I think Reagan got better results with taxpayers at the highest level, but Obama still has a few months to prove me wrong.

    Following Obama's thought to a logical conclusion, the government must be choosing people at random and telling them "We have decided to make you rich." I suppose a state lottery does precisely that, but lottery winners are only a tiny fraction of wealthy people. If only the government can create success, then how does Obama explain the difference between rich and poor? Who are the "chosen ones" and how did the government pick them?

    Mr. Obama, how DOES the government make rich people rich? Why can't it repeat that process for the rest of us and make us ALL rich?

    I suppose that's a lot to ask, especially from a government that manages retirement funds as a Ponzi scheme. I suppose Bernie Madoff has the government to thank because his investment scheme was modeled after Social Security. But the real answer for everyone else is that individuals are responsible for their own success.

    Obama's speech would be spot-on in the old Soviet Union, where success was truly dependent upon the state. And look at how well THAT worked out!

    Definitely.

    The "...you didn't build that." line was a real whopper. I wonder if that speech was translated from one of the famous communists: Lenin? Kruschev? Castro? Chavez?

    I wonder why Obama leans towards a Soviet-style state. Does he not know how that experiment ended? Apparently not.

    tank yeltsin

    I can easily see how a second term for Obama could lead to a massive rebellion. There are plenty of anti-communists with experience dismantling the Soviet Union. For starters, we need a guy with a bullhorn who is not afraid of tanks:

    anti-communists experience dismantling soviet union starters guy bullhorn afraid tanks

    My guess is the CIA, NSA, and joint chiefs are already looking at contingency planning for a government collapse if Obama gets another term. A lot of angry people are tolerating an incompetent government only because they think it ends after the next election.

    Obama and his surogates are bleeding their true colors and channeling Marx and Engels. What we are seeing is their commitment to their expected Revolution of the working class. America stands in their way as the embodiment of Industrial Might and allowing even the poorest the opportunity to advance as far as our skill and tallent will take us.

    And that can't be allowed to continue.

    Hahahaha!
    This is a joke, right?
    Who, except total brain-dead idiots, saw anything else?

    Look at it simply: What has he *EVER* actually accomplished in his entire life, since potty training? (I have no *PROOF* of potty training, but I'll give him that one.)

    He's always been given everything he's ever gotten, never having to ever be personally responsible for anything.
    How could he ever possibly have learned that people actually *DO* accomplish success in business on their own . . . when he's has *NEVER*, *EVER* accomplished *ANYTHING* on his own?

    I've dealt with snake oil salesmen all my life, Obama is one of "the most transparent ever", because the others *AT LEAST* had the snake oil to prove they had it in the first place and to try and sell.
