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.

Cheers Friends!

    I have several comments:
    Daniel Hannan knows American history inside and out. And if we had a few more AMERICAN politicians who loved America as much as this Brit does, we’d be in much better shape. Hannan is brilliant.

    These became the toughest times for a president thanks to this presidents agenda. He did this to himself – and to us. And as Will points out, Lincoln had much worse things to deal with than this poser can ever imagine.

    As the TEA party has made real clear – I mean REAL clear – social policy is not important on a federal government level. We don’t want to discuss things that should not be legislated – like abortion or affirmative action. We want them to deal with the things the Constitution gives them the power to control – our MONEY. If social issues have to be dealt with, they are to be confined to the state level. Those are not enumerated in the Constitution as part of the federal purview. And leaving social policy to the states (where they belong) is what Levin calls the “harmony of diversity” that has made this nation so great and so exceptional.

    And thanks for the link, doll! 😉

    The Republicans would be wise not to conclude that the election results were solely a mandate about healthcare and spending. The same independent voters that swung left to elect Obama knew full well what his agenda was, this was no surprise. I think the economy played a major role in the results as far as people being frustrated with what was being done, or not done, to address it, so they swung right this time.

    Healthcare did play a role in the outcome, people feel a little more generous about helping out those without healthcare when times are good, when times get bad, charity takes a back seat.

    If the republicans don’t get the economy moving by 2012 then they might find themselves in the same spot as the democrats

    Yes, they DO ignore the possibility that voters have a brain, and with good reason. They fooled enough people to get into office in the first place. The Department of Justice ignores voter intimidation even with video evidence. When printing more money didn’t fix the economy they resolved to print more money til it did. My health care costs… went up?! My array of services… went down?! And people in the same situation as me still think this guy is wonderful?

    I’ve listened with interest as the conservative radio hosts have pshawed Obama’s claim that the House was lost due to poor communication between his administration and the voters. The radio personalities like to cast this in a “he thinks you’re too stupid to understand” light. I take a different view and actually agree with the president on this one point – it WAS poor communication that led to the loss of the House.

    The first step in communication is sending the message. The second step is to receive the message – the ever critical LISTENING phase of communication. The Obama administration failed to listen. Poor communication. The voters were forced to send a stronger message… which he still… isn’t… listening to. The administration isn’t “tone deaf” as we keep hearing. To say this administration is tone deaf is like saying a couple people got burned in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.

    We are but one term away from falling into full-fledged Idiocracy territory. I don’t know about you, but that movie was a little too close to home for me.
