This will end in tears. The Obama hysteria is not merely embarrassing to witness, it is itself contributory to the scale of the disaster that is coming. What we are experiencing, in the deepening days of a global depression, is the desperate suspension of disbelief by people of intelligence - la trahison des clercs - in a pathetic effort to hypnotise themselves into the delusion that it will be all right on the night. It will not be all right.
We have been here before. In the spring of 1997, to be precise, when a charismatic, young prime minister entered Downing Street, cheered by children bussed in for the occasion waving plastic Union Jacks. A very few of us at that time incurred searing reproaches for denouncing the Great Charlatan (as I have always denominated Tony Blair) and dissenting from the public hysteria. Three times a deluded Britain elected that transparent fraud. Yesterday, when national bankruptcy became a formal reality, we reaped the bitter harvest of the Blair/Brown imposture.
The burnt child, contrary to conventional wisdom, does not fear the fire. After the Blair experience there is no excuse for anybody in Britain falling for Obama. Yet today, in this country, even some of those who remained sane during the emotional spasm of the Diana aberration are pumping the air for Princess Barack. At a time of gross economic and geopolitical instability throughout the Western world, this is beyond irresponsibility.

Obama’s administration will be known as “The rich will get richer, the poor will get poorer and the middle class will pay for it” administration.
Unfortunately I’m afraid that the nation will end in tears.
I have a bad feeling that our enemies will see how far they can go with the new guy and his peacenik friends; and that it will be the ordinary citizens who will pay them price the most. And I’d bet that it’ll probably be within the first 6 months.
Obamah proved for the whole world yesterday he is useless without his crutch, the teleprompter.
Is this a reference to Sant0bama being from the South side of Chicago?
“la trahison des clercs” = the treason of the intellectuals, the willingness to ignore facts, to look the other way, to not speak, to go along with the propaganda ... because the ‘cause’ is SOOOO important.
Whether it’s Obamanomics or Man-Made Climate Change, la trahison des clercs is in full swing right now.
Google the term. Crackers are a British Christmas gift opened by cracking them.
This article is spot on. People will rue the day they installed this imposter in office. We will pay with lives and wallets.
End in tears? It’s begun in tears as witnessed from all the weeping on and off camera yesterday. But, certainly, it will end in worse than tears for all of us.
I wish there was an appropriate term for what has been perpetrated upon these United States. Lies, complicity, fraud; not one of these words adequately describe it.
Perhaps the 0bama administration will surprise me and our country will not crumble and fall. It has survived much and it may be that he and his cabal are not the worst. They talk about hope and that is mine.
That Newt Gingrich, a history professor who knows the history of socialism, now fawning over Obama, is frightening.
Yes, Justice Roberts putting the word “faithfully” at the end of the sentence instead of in the middle proved to be more than Teleprompter Boy could handle. Contrary to media reports, he aint too shmardt.
This job is clearly above his paygrade.
The most powerful nation on earth is confronting its worst economic crisis under the leadership of its most extremely liberal politician, who has virtually no experience of federal politics. That is not an opportunity but a catastrophe.
These are frank, even ungracious, words: they have the one merit that, unlike almost everything else written today about Obama, they will not require to be eaten in the future.
He knows history, and also knows that to stay out of the re-education attitude adjustment camps, kissing der furor's ring is his only out.
He lost me there. The people who voted for and are rooting for Obama are 100% idiots.
Can we get a refund on the $170,000,000? We got told we were going to hear the speech of the Republic, we got a clichefest that had no heart or soul only anger.
Pray for America, Our Troops and Obama’s Guidance
We'd be lucky if that were the case, but I'm afraid the author is right. Smart people don't always have common sense. I work with several people who are not just intelligent, but brilliant. Talk to them about work, and they're razor sharp, clinical, and focused. Talk to them about Obama, and they become inarticulate and emotional. It's like a switch flips in their heads.
Certainly, Obama has the idiot market cornered, but there's a vast number of otherwise intelligent people that are simply mesmerized by him.
Even England sees the circus act going on in our country. I am embarrassed that people are acting this way about a mere mortal.
