My friends, I’ve just seen an incredible video of the President of the United States speaking in my backyard, right here in Northern Virginia. He told a crowd that he doesn’t want to hear any more “talking” from folks who disagree with him. I’m stunned.
Here’s what President Obama said: “I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking." (You can watch the video here.)
What “mess” is he talking about? Is this it? Or maybe this. Regardless, in the birthplace of presidents -- the state that gave us George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison -- Obama essentially told conservative Americans to shut up. Our Founding Fathers risked their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to throw off the yoke of tyranny so that future generations might be blessed with freedom, including the freedom of speech.
But now, Obama expects us to sit down, shut up and go to the back of the bus, while he, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid take a hard left and drive us full speed toward European-style socialism. I am not going to sit down, and I hope you don’t either.
