Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Thank the Lord!

Here’s a comment a wise man sent me:

From Obama’s closing remarks at his victory speech a week ago today:

"I face this challenge with profound humility and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. . . . I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal. . . . This was the moment – this was the time – when we came together to remake this great nation."
He remakes an already great nation, he heals the sick, provides meaning in the lives of people, he beats back the oceans in a manner that would make King Canute green with envy. And he does this in profound humility.

And to think that leftist blacks used to deride Martin Luther King as "De Lawd."

Shoud that be "Thank the Lord . . . and Pass the Political Ammunition"?

Imagine remaking America into the land of free health care, jobs for all and planetary stasis. This is the new America. Maybe not free, but well-cared for.

He forgot that it's also the moment we start to surrender to Hussein's friends the Arab terrorists.

It's almost funny how, immediately after you provide the excerpt from the Obama speech, in which he clearly says "we" repeatedly, you translate it as though he said "I". He clearly did no such thing. That was a tricky switch you pulled there.

Where was The Right's sense of skepticism when the Bush Machine made big talk of bestowing American-style democracy upon Iraq and perhaps the rest of the Middle East to follow?

I think Americans are going to be much more responsive to Obama's ideas than to those of McSame (as Bush), who would either tackle America's problems with more Bush-style policies, or policies even more extreme than Bush's. And that's if he has any policies in mind at all other than a shrug of indifference.

Americans are tired of Republicans who always tell us that government is the problem and then, once elected, go about proving it directly.

Every time I hear that snippet on the radio, I crack up. I begin to giggle from the start, but when he gets to the bit about stopping the rise of the oceans . . . I think the RNC should just excerpt that and play it all the time . . . superimpose Charlton Heston as Moses standing over the Red Sea . . . it's perfect.

On another note, the best line ever about Michelle Obama comes from Dennis Miller on yesterday's program. He said (and I paraphrase), "I just watch her, Sal, and I don't know . . . she looks like a long day to me."

Obama and his fans are the gravediggers of our free Western civilization.

I remember Solzhenitsyn fiercely attacking the arrogance of the Soviet government for literally reversing the direction of flow of a Siberian river, and blaming the Soviet govt. for threatening major climate changes. Either BO is a total fraud or more arrogant than Leonid Brezhnev ever was.
