They’re Delivering Tankers of Kool Aid Around the Country Now.

As usual, Thomas Sowell put it best: A lot of people mistake confusion in their own minds for complexity in the real world. Mark Steyn does a good job too.

Ignorant people filled with hate are easily fooled. Especially if you promise them lots of free stuff.



The "smartest people in the room" who supported Obama still don't get it. Via Mark Steyn ...

Mark Steyn: Missing the point.

The Economist is the latest of the smart guys to notice that President Obama is proving strangely unlike the guy they told us he was back in late October: ...

The geniuses then go on to explain why this is: first, he hasn't "grappled" with the economy as singlemindedly as he should; second, he hasn't managed his relations with Congress very well. Jennifer Rubin gently explains what the smart guys have missed:


This is the point: The nuancey boys were wrong on Obama, and the knuckledragging morons were right. There is no post-partisan centrist "grappling" with the economy, only a transformative radical willing to make Americans poorer in the cause of massive government expansion. At some point, The Economist, Messrs Brooks, Buckley & Co are going to have to acknowledge this. If they're planning on spending the rest of his term tutting that his management style is obstructing the effective implementation of his centrist agenda, it's going to be a long four years.

It’s something that I have noticed in talking to my associates. Few people who were for Obama, on the fence, or willing to give him a chance are willing to support the policies that he is pursuing. Their defense of him amounts to a rejection of criticism. They turn the discussion to Bush. They believe that those who opposed Obama did not do so because they disagreed with his policies – as interpreted by his earlier positions and, by implication, by the people he associated with – but because of a personal animus.


It was never that, but it is fast becoming that. How can a person remain neutral toward someone who continues to use straw-man arguments, to offer false choices, and to remain supremely unconcerned about the destruction of the people’s wealth while loading a debt burden on the next generation that will be impossible to repay. Just as people, as moral agents, should not remain neutral in the face of evil men, we should not refrain from passing judgment on the person who is deliberately deconstructing America.

great article and i have found it very true. People always want to go to Bush and what he did. No one wants to really take a look at what Obama has done in less than 3 months and what he and the Dems are pushing. I don't care who it is doing it, what is being done to our country needs to be stoped. Government needs to get out of our lives and our businesses and do it's job laid out in our constitution only.
