Remember when some Republicans on the right went berserk when they heard President Obama say something about wanting to "fundamentally transform" America?
Yeah. I remember how outraged and red-in-the-face angry they got when they screamed about the audacity of stating something so anti-Constitutional, so wrong! Wrong! They said America was perfect the way she was and does NOT need to be "fundamentally transformed!!!"
BTW, here’s Obama’s original statement, in an October 2008 campaign visit to Columbia, Mo:
"Now, Mizzou, I just have two words for you tonight: five days. Five days. After decades of broken politics in Washington, and eight years of failed policies from George W. Bush, and 21 months of a campaign that's taken us from the rocky coast of Maine to the sunshine of California, we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.
(Here's that awful transformation part explained!)
"In five days, you can turn the page on policies that put greed and irresponsibility on Wall Street before the hard work and sacrifice of folks on Main Street. In five days, you can choose policies that invest in our middle class, and create new jobs, and grow this economy, so that everyone has a chance to succeed, not just the CEO, but the secretary and janitor, not just the factory owner, but the men and women on the factory floor."
The NERVE of him wanting to give people a chance to succeed! How dare he?!
Those people on the right were so outraged by those lefty ideas of giving people who work hard the opportunity to get ahead that they were eaten up by their anger at Mr Obama's transformation idea--an idea that has been the bulwark of American progress since this country's beginning.
Okay. I just showed you how silly they were to flip out over this noncontroversial statement.
Has anyone, anywhere flipped out on this latest poll that shows Republicans wanting to "fundamentally transform" America? Anyone?
Here it is:
A Public Policy Polling (PPP) national survey conducted between February 20th and February 22nd of Republican voters, found that an astonishing 57 percent of Republicans want to dismantle the Constitution, and establish Christianity as the official national religion.
Only 30 percent oppose making Christianity the national religion. Although the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment clearly states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,” GOP voters want to cast aside that provision and impose Christianity as the official American religion.
Could there be anything more fundamentally transforming than a proposal to change the Constitution and eliminate a fundamental provision of the document that they fetishize?
57% of Republicans want to fundamentally transform America by instituting a state religion! Those Republicans want to emulate Middle East countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia! How patriotic of them!
Compare and contrast: Mr. Obama's "fundamental transformation" idea was to restore the American ideal of hard working Americans being able to provide life's basics: food, shelter, education.
The Republicans who took the poll want to fundamentally change the U.S. Constitution and disregard centuries of American law?
Think about that when you think about them having complete control of all three branches of the U.S. government.
They want to fundamentally transform America into a theocracy.

Andy Borowitz of The New Yorker explains why that would be a nightmare:
(The Borowitz Report) — In an effort to distance himself from the legacy of his brother, George W. Bush, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will use a major foreign-policy speech on Wednesday to assert that, if elected President, he would harm the nation in completely different ways.
“A lot of people are looking at me and thinking that I’m just going to be a rerun of my brother,” Bush told reporters before the speech. “They are greatly underestimating my ability to create chaos and destruction in ways that are uniquely mine.”
As an example, Bush said, he was unlikely to invade Iraq for a third time, calling such an action “too derivative.” “George already did it, and Dad did it before him,” he said. “Call it my independent streak, if you will, but I want to spawn some disasters of my own.”
To that end, Bush said that he and his foreign-policy team were already scanning the globe for “new and different places” where the United States could become involved in open-ended and pointless quagmires.
“I see boundless opportunities for the reckless and totally optional insertion of American military force,” he said. “No offense to my brother, but there were a few spots that George missed.”

The only reason I give a flying donut about Lisa and her Gang of Deranged Degenerates is because her groupies regularly come to my blog, copy what I write, paste it into her comment section, using fake names (Fox Snooze, for example, stole the entire comment from my blog), and pretend to be me or someone like me. Her highly excitable blog friends then react to what her sock puppets steal from my blog, some of them becoming so enraged that they lose all sense of decency that a normal human being possesses. This happened recently at Lisa's blog. One of her admirers had an viperous burst of depraved imprecations at Lisa's sock puppets' comments.
Probably feeling shame and remorse, the author of the bilious comments removed them. But here's where it gets interesting: Lisa claims that she removed them (even though the scrubbed comments say "this comment removed by the author"). Only when the author of a comment deletes that comment does that appear under his or her name. When the owner of a blog removes a comment, the scrubbed comment carries this notice: "this comment has been removed by a blog administrator."
That is not possible, since Free Thinke, and everyone who blogs using Blogger, has a unique profile ID number that NO ONE CAN STEAL and NO ONE BUT THE OWNER OF THAT I.D. NUMBER can post under that profile ID. The profile ID number linked to Free Thinke's crazed outbursts are his and his alone and match the profile ID number of his personal blog.
Why is Lisa lying about who scrubbed Free Thinke's comments and why does Free Thinke let her? And why is she accusing Ducky of having anything to do with those filthy comments? Only she can answer that. It's outrageously dishonest and beyond sick that these people would engage in gutter-style blogging tactics and then blame someone else for it.
Why did Free Thinke go off the rails in cascade of hatred and vitriol that would be hard to find even on Storm Front-type blogs? Who knows.
What is inexcusable is that these people set up situations by stealing other people's work, pretend to be the people they steal from, then lie, lie, lie about the whole sordid mess they create.
These people are a perfect example of Tea Party followers and a certain group of conservative bloggers who are not able to tell the truth or see it even when it's in front of their noses. They are a microcosm of the very worst of that group of people.
Below are Free Thinke's captured comments. Place your cursor over his name in the comments and see the profile ID number, then check it against the profile ID number that identifies him as the blog owner of "Free Thinke." They are one and the same. Lisa owes Ducky an apology. But that's what a decent, honest person would do.
Why did Free Thinke lose his cool and post the most vicious comments I've seen in my 10 years of blogging? Only he can answer that.
See below for the comments and check out the profile I.D. numbers.
I hope you get GANG RAPED, SLASHED and left for DEAD in the darkest, dirtiest alley in town, you VICIOUS PIECE OF FILTH.
Take a TURPENTINE ENEMA, then DRINK WHAT COMES OUT of YOUR ASS, you FUCKIN' PIECE of SHIT
I hope you get CANCER of the ASSHOLE and DIE in MISERY in a Charity Ward, you filthy CUNT.
I hope someone straps you down, breaks your jaw, then sticks a cherry bomb up your CUNT and LIGHTS IT, you FUCKIN PIECE of SHIT.
YOU are TURD that needs to be FLUSHED, you FUCKIN' BITCH. I hope you get CANCER of the CUNT and DIE in MISERY. I'd gladly come over and PISS on your GRAVE every day. A fitting tribute to your memory.
