Quote Of The Day

Michael Goodwin at the NY Daily News gives this assessment of Obama in a recent column:

He is the most radical President of our times, far outside the mainstream of our political philosophy.

He is not a reformer who fixes things. He fancies himself “transformative,” a man who reshapes and reorders. It apparently begins with smashing the existing order under the pretext of managing the crisis he inherited.

During the campaign, a fellow journalist confided that “I know Obama is a Manchurian candidate, I just can’t figure out what for.”

I laughed then, but no more. Obama represents a secular religion that believes, no matter the malady, Washington is the antidote. More government is the chicken soup of his tribe.

In those four sentences, Goodwin capsulizes the essence of Obama and the “secular religion” he heads. Apparently we finally have a theocracy in place.

  • How is it that the longer that The Clown™ is in office, the more that he appears to be an inexperienced hack who is in way over his head when it comes to running this country?

    How long before the majority of the American people conclude the very same thing?

  • Obama represents the kind of thinking of the future.  Dinosaurs like Goodwin can’t accept it — can’t accept that the fuzzy warm conservatism they embraced 30 years ago with Reagan is now fading.  It’s generational change — a kind of culture shift.  Get used to it.

    • I must say, for once, beneath that layer of Obamabot nonsense, you make a fair point.
      President Obama would not have been possible 20 years ago (and I’m not referring to his skin color). He truly does represent the kind of thinking of the youtube-generation.

      But, for the sake of those of us who see the disaster coming, I just hope that his “transformation” will still be reversible after he leaves (or, – and I dream – is forced to leave) office..
