UFC Quick Quote: Chuck Norris calls for 'political jiu-jitsu' to stop the Obama regime

via <a href=""></a>

"The art of Jiu-Jitsu is to use an opponent's weight and strength to your advantage. I believe this is what the conservatives must do in the coming 2012 presidential election. Obama's 'weight and strength' is that by next year he will have a surplus of $1 billion in campaign money and the mainstream media supporting him. He also has ACORN (or whatever they call themselves now) and other community organizers rallying the liberal troops to make sure he gets re-elected. Add to that his slick-willy youth charm and pseudo-charisma with which he has bamboozled a large part of the American public, who neither follow politics nor understand how he has unraveled the very fabrics of our republic. And tailor that with Obama's unique ability to make one believe he means what he says from a teleprompter, and you have a formidable foe. But as Rickson Gracie, retired mixed martial artist, an eighth-degree black and red belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and a member of the renowned martial arts family – the Gracie family, once said, 'If size mattered, the elephant would be the king of the jungle.' How true that is. But it's also true that the elephant here (Obama), despite the shape of the economy, is still leading every single Republican presidential candidate by double-digit margins. A brand new Reuters/Ipsos poll reveals that Obama is even 'ahead of his closest Republican rival, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, by 13 percentage points – 51 percent to 38 percent.' To be effective, the conservative organizations, independents, libertarians, Republicans, tea partiers, and other grass-root groups across our country must make the people aware that it is time we unite as one voice and, if you will, one Jiu-Jitsu force. And that includes the Republican candidates running for president. If they don't, we will proceed through the presidential primary with politics as usual and get swallowed up in the partisan muck and mire."

Legendary karate champion Chuck Norris (via World Net Daily) calls for his Republican comrades to use "political jiu-jitsu" to overthrow President Barack Obama in the next presidential election. The man formerly known as "Walker, Texas Ranger" is picking up where UFC lightweight Jacob Volkmann left off -- sans secret service smackdown. Is the action movie star sneaking in some grappling lingo to rally a certain demographic to his cause? Or does he really have a point about applying the art of jiu-jitsu to battles outside the dojo? Opinions, please.
