Obama is the latest model yet of the lib paradigm that only government can make your life for you. Hillary isn’t really saying anything different, but Obama is worlds above Hillary as a speaker. Hillary’s crowds know what she’ll deliver despite the grating voice. Obama’s followers have that rapturous look on their faces that only the completely deceived have. They love Obama. Despite the fact that the main thrust of Obama’s speeches are that Americans are too stupid to live their own lives. Obama/Big Government is needed to care for the poor fools who probably need help tying their shoelaces and wiping their posteriors.

“Americans are not in debt because they live frivolously but because someone got sick. Even with insurance, the deductibles and the premiums are so high that people are still putting medications and treatments on credit cards. And they can’t get out from under. I could go on and on, but this is how we’re living, people, in 2008.”

It’s never anyone’s fault when they dig themselves into a hole they can’t get out of. They’re always victims of circumstance and its up to Big Brother to pull them out. I swear, the more I hear this drivel, the more I wish time travel was possible; I want to go back in time when personal responsiblity still meant something.

“And things have gotten progressively worse throughout my lifetime, through Democratic and Republican administrations, it hasn’t gotten better for regular folks. ....”

And that couldn’t possibly be because big government bums like Obama keep telling people “Don’t worry about anything. The government will solve all your problems” with their fingers crossed behind their backs.

“We have lost the understanding that in a democracy, we have a mutual obligation to one another — that we cannot measure the greatness of our society by the strongest and richest of us, but we have to measure our greatness by the least of these. That we have to compromise and sacrifice for one another in order to get things done. That is why I am here, because Barack Obama is the only person in this who understands that. That before we can work on the problems, we have to fix our souls. Our souls are broken in this nation.”

One, we’re a Republic, not a democracy (and even if we were, charity at gunpoint isn’t a trait of a democracy).

Two, while it would be nice for us to care about others, we are not required too and the government is not in any way justified in making us care. We each make our own life, for good or bad, and we are not responsible for anyone but ourselves. Charity is good, but it shouldn’t replace personal responsiblity.

I heard a Dick Morris interview on Mike Gallagher's show the other nite say that unlike Her Thighness, Obama is not an ideologue. As usual, he is dead wrong. Obama appears to me the most ideologically leftwinger we have ever seen as a viable candidate, at least in my lifetime. His positions cannot even be said to be Marxist lite. Obama is as hard left as they come, and cultivating a cult of personality as he is doing, ala Hugo Chavez, is downright alarming. If one would crawl over broken glass to vote against Jezebel, it seems to me one would crawl over razor blades to vote against this tax-and-spend crypto-Muslim false messiah.
