Remember when the self-important, esteemed Internationalist and French-loving John Kerry made the following statement in the 2004 Presidential debates?
“No president, through all of American history, has ever ceded — and nor would I — the right to preempt in any way necessary, to protect the United States of America,” the Democrat told moderator Jim Lehrer during the debate.
“But if and when you do it, Jim, you’ve got to do it in a way that passes the, the test, that passes the global test where your countrymen, your people, understand fully why you’re doing what you’re doing, and you can prove to the world that you did it for legitimate reasons.”
Hmmm…… I forgot that Kerry was against the “global test” before he was for it.Â
In any case, it appears that our friend Senator Obama has his own version of “the global test.”
â€œWe can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.”
So whereas John Kerry was debating himself about ceding America’s right to self-defense, Obama has taken the Kerry Doctrine one step further by ceding to the World one of our threeÂ inalienable rights: the pursuit of happiness.
I think the esteemed Constitutional lawyer needs to go back and read the Declaration of Independence.
PS – I keep my house at 70 degrees at all times.Â I dare President Obama to come and take my thermostat — over my cold, dead body.
