He had defined himself as a world-class whiner even before Rahm Emanuel, a world-class flatterer, declared that Obama had dealt masterfully with “the toughest times any president has ever faced” – quite a claim, considering that before the first president from Illinois was even inaugurated, seven of the then-34 states had seceded. Today’s president from Illinois, a chronic campaigner and incontinent complainer who is uninhibited by considerations of presidential dignity, has blamed his difficulties on:
George W. Bush, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, the Supreme Court, a Cincinnati congressman (John Boehner), Karl Rove, Americans for Prosperity and other “groups with harmless-sounding names” (Hillary Clinton’s “vast right-wing conspiracy” redux), “shadowy third-party groups” (they are as shadowy as steam calliopes), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and, finally, the American people. They have deeply disappointed him by being impervious to “facts and science and argument.”
Yes! Is George Will a word mechanic or what? I mean, dude! Alright – I won’t be quite as disrespectful as Jon Stewart was when he sucked the authority and dignity of the Presidency right out of B.H.Obama. Will does a marvelous job of describing both the arrogance and condescension of the progressive caucus of the democratic party. I’ve read several articles from the left, and virtually all ignore the possibility that voters had a brain. So often as to be contemptible, many on the left decide that people who disagree with their agenda are simply immoral, uncaring, unthinking, racist or cowering in fear. The foundations of strictly liberal education would crumble if any legitimacy was ascribed to those, those… Never mind, I’m not going there with them.
Will the DemoRats get the message? It’s actually doubtful, but will the Repulsivcans get the message? I hope they get the message… otherwise they should just camp at a KOA outside D.C. until 2012 and the indies put them up for shellacking. Leave the social agenda alone and focus on our founding principles. I mean really – the EU’s “constitution is nearly 80,000 words and HAS NOT BEEN VOTED ON… The U.S. Constitution (with ammendments) is less than 7,500 words. Our republic is astonishing in its elegant longevity and simplicity. Obama really doesn’t get it! What’s it take to make us “a happy and a prosperous people?” When Roger Kimball quotes Jefferson in his Weekly Standard article, I believe he’s got it right!
A wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned.
Every link in here is worth the read (well, maybe not the tea party haters), but if you read only one – read the Roger Kimball article and buy the new book he is reviewing, now THAT is worth the read! The New Road to Serfdom: A Letter of Warning to America by Daniel Hannan. Awesome book.
