Newsmax tepidly disavows Obama-coup column

TPM has posted Newsmax's response to that Obama-coup column. Rachel Slajda does a nice job highlighting the hollowness of spokesperson Paula Pradine's claim that John L. Perry has "no official relationship" with Newsmax. But another Pradine claim--namely, that Perry's column was descriptive rather than proscriptive--is allowed to go unchallenged. 

That's a shame, because it's patently untrue. Look at the last five paragraphs of Perry's piece:

Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a "family intervention," with some form of limited, shared responsibility?

Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.

Military intervention is what Obama's exponentially accelerating agenda for "fundamental change" toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama's radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.

Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don't shrug and say, "We can always worry about that later."

In the 2008 election, that was the wistful, self-indulgent, indifferent reliance on abnegation of personal responsibility that has sunk the nation into this morass.

In other words: dramatic action to solve the "Obama problem" is necessary now. Some people might find the prospect of a coup unpalatable, but it wouldn't have to be all that ugly. And it sure as hell beats doing nothing.
