If Obama is not stopped, “America as we know it will cease to exist.”
Keyes’ comments were part of an interview with a reporter from KHAS-TV at a fundraiser for the AAA Crisis Pregnancy Center in Hastings, Neb.
“Obama is a radical communist, and I think it is becoming clear. That is what I told people in Illinois and now everybody realizes it’s true,” said Keyes, who ran unsuccessfully against Obama for the state’s open Senate seat in 2004. “He is going to destroy this country, and we are either going to stop him or the United States of America is going to cease to exist.”
Keyes also reasserted his belief that unless the question of Obama’s eligibility to serve as president is answered definitively, America may face the startling crisis of an executive branch run by a “usurper.”
“Is he president of the United States?” Keyes asked the reporter of Obama. “According to the Constitution, in order to be eligible for president you have to be a natural born citizen. He has refused to provide proof.”
“I’m not sure he’s even president of the United States,” Keyes continued, “neither are many of our military people now who are now going to court to ask the question, ‘Do we have to obey a man who is not qualified under the constitution?’ We are in the midst of the greatest crisis this nation has ever seen, and if we don’t stop laughing about it and deal with it, we’re going to find ourselves in the midst of chaos, confusion and civil war.”
Keyes, who stated he refuses even to refer to Obama as president, labeled the man in the Oval Office as “somebody who is kind of an alleged usurper, who is alleged to be someone who is occupying that office without constitutional warrant to do so.”
Keyes’ comments included harsh criticism of Obama’s policies on immigration, abortion, and the mortgage crisis.
He concluded the interview by railing against the president’s push for hundreds of billions of dollars in government economic stimulus spending.
“We are claiming that a bankrupt government can save a bankrupt banking system”, Keyes said.
