Obama’s Declaration of Political War


Recommended Posts

obamas-declaration-of-politicaAmerican Spectator:

Most great and memorable inaugural addresses are imbued with a spirit of charity and magnanimity. There is a clear sense that the president is speaking not for one political party or faction, but rather for the nation as a whole.

Thus in his first inaugural address, Jefferson declared, “We are Republicans; we are all Federalists.” In his second inaugural address, Lincoln, likewise, spoke of “bind[ing] up the nation’s wounds” And Reagan urged us to “work and act together, not as members of political parties, but as Americans.”

But Jefferson, Lincoln, and Reagan were great presidents and publicly spirited men who spoke timeless and eternal truths. Barack Obama, however, is not a great president, and he is not especially large of spirit. He’s just a reflexive and dogmatic liberal.

Thus far from speaking timeless and eternal truths, he instead speaks the hackneyed liberal gospel as taught to him by the academic clerisy at Columbia and Harvard.

Indeed, Obama’s second inaugural address was a liberal wet dream: It pressed all of the Left’s erogenous zones:

• Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security? Obama vowed not to change or reform them — even though they are driving us toward financial insolvency, and even though they provide workers with a relatively lousy return on their investment.

• “Climate change”? It is real, and it must be addressed — now!

• “Sustainable (read: green) energy”? “America cannot resist this transition. We must lead it” — now!Scissors-32x32.png
