Obama will have a special Sputnik moment in Wisconsin town


Washington (CNN) - Have you been wondering why Manitowac, Wisconsin, is the first stop for President Barack Obama after his State of the Union address?

Could be that he wants to continue his conversation with American families about rebuilding the nation's economy. Or that he wants to lift Democratic blues that Wisconsin will turn red in the next election.

    The "sputnik" moment is when the US population realizes it was HAD by a non-citizen becoming President, with the massive assistance of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. Its the moment we realized we've had a coup.

    "Mr. President, you don't believe in the Constitution. You believe in socialism."

    If CNN had even a remote ounce of integrity, they'd do a stroy on the FACT that the Constitution does NOT mandate any particular economic system. It simply doesn't. Not in any way, shape or form. For people who love runnign around like chickens with their heads cut off screaming at the tops of their lungs that thinsg like the "separation of church and state" isn't in the Constitution because that phrase is not literally set forth therein to be yammering incessantly that capitalism is required by the Constitution is, well, yet more complete and utter hypocrisy from them. Guess what? The word "capitalism" isn't in the Constitution either, nor is the phrase "free market." This is not to say I support socialism or even that Obama does...that's an entirely different failing on the part of the "news" media because they uncritically repeat the accusation without showing how absurd it truly is to claim that ANYTHING Obama or the Dems have done over the past 2 years constitutes "soshulizms"...so the reality is, these idiots are being given a free pass and the "liberal lamestream media" is carrying their water for them. Do an interview with one of the dudes from the actual socialist party or one of their actual existing think tanks...they scoff at the idea that Obama is a socialist or that the ACA is socialism. It's patently ridiculous, but it pays BIG BUCKS to take advantage of the average American's ignorance on what it all really means.

    Wisconsin is in a state of shock and dismay right now. They are asking, "What the hell did we do this last election?"
