There are only so many ways to interpret the mindset of the American people in the wake of the midterm elections. Fed up with Washington? Yes. A rejection of President Obama's agenda? Absolutely. A desire to get new blood into our leadership? Definitely. A sign that President Obama should just start governing by executive order? Ummmm, no. The opposite actually. But apparently President Obama didn't get the message - his comments on the election are downright terrifying to anyone who believes in liberty and the rule of law.
"So to everyone who voted, I want you to know I hear you. To the two-thirds of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you too," President Obama said.
"Do you hear what he said?" Glenn said in response. "He said, I hear the people who voted. I want you to know I hear you. But you're such a small inconsequential number. To the two-thirds that didn't participate, I hear you well, how do you hear them, Mr. President?"
Glenn told listeners to couple these comments with President Obama's willingness to govern by executive order if Congress won't send him a bill he will sign.
"He's going to move forward because we just can't wait any longer. If congress decides to join him, fine. If they don't. Fine. This is the definition of a dictator," Glenn warned.
The news led to a discussion about the importance of humility, especially among people in power.
"If you are a person in power, you have to have humility. Learn that from George Washington. Be humble," Glenn explained.
"If we're going to come together, we need to have a couple of things. We need to be humble. Both sides need to be humble," Glenn said. "We have to say, we don't have the answers, you don't have the answers, but we'll do our best. We have to love America and recognize we're not an evil empire because of her people, not because of the government. The government could become and has been an evil empire in the past, but her people stop her from being that, not the government. We have to believe in the system no matter how broken it is and work to strengthen the Constitution and its framework. We have to have mutual respect for one another with empathy, compassion, and humility, and we finally have to put our principles over politics and faith over religion."
"When you do that that, Mr. President, when you do that Republicans in Washington, we'll be fine. Leave us alone. Leave us alone. Americans can figure it out."
