You Got Wax In Your Ears Or Hate In Your Heart?

Barack Obama, the President of our United States.......
America elected this guy to be their Leader and then forgot to follow. I guess it has been so long since we have had a leader instead of a Charismatic Lemming Herder, or a left handed CIA operative, or a Self Promoter, or a Goober being led around by Darth Vader, that we just don't know what one is no more.

Do I hear bleating? Loud Baahs?

He has told us over and over and over and over and over that he intends to govern by consensus!

He has said it clearly and consistently, but the black and white sheep with wool over their eyes and ears that are being led around by the various ilk of cable network and blogger goats seem to not be able to hear what he has said over their too loud chorus of bleatings led by the shrill baah's of those they follow.

Here it is plain and simple in the President's words:

"I am confident that when all is said and done, we can forge the consensus we need to achieve this goal,' the president wrote in an op-ed piece in The New York Times."

“...we can no longer let the perfect be the enemy of the essential.”

"This time, Obama said, “Each of us must accept that none of us will get everything we want.” And, he said, “While everyone has a right to take part in this discussion, no one has the right to take it over.”

“In this effort, every voice must be heard. Every idea must be considered. Every option must be on the table. There will be no sacred cows in this discussion,” Obama said."


"General agreement, characterized by the absence of sustained opposition to substantial issues by any important part of the concerned interests and by a process that involves seeking to take into account the views of all parties concerned and to reconcile any conflicting arguments
NOTE Consensus need not imply unanimity."

"A position reach by a group when everyone in the group can say, "I can live with it." That means that all participants may not find the outcome as their ideal solution, but it is not worth arguing about – they can live with it and can support it, they can sleep at night."

Is there an alternative to Consensus?
Sure. We tried it. It is called Civil War. Power Politics. Minority Suppression. Absolute Majority Rule. Nothing a Democratic Republic can long live with.

Obama is set on governing by consensus. That's the gig guys. That's the unhidden big secret! There is no reason to fear that, unless you believe in race or ideological supremacy. If you can't hear that. Then get the wax out of your ears, or the hate out of your heart.

If you don't, then prepared to be sheared and fed to the wolves.
