Of course they sneer! Why wouldn't any person knowledgeable about the history of civilization's struggle against tyranny and oppression?

For over 200 years, individuals and leaders in countries all over the world have looked to America as a "beacon" of liberty, opportunity, prosperity and hope. Hundreds of millions of their citizens have fled their own nations to "go to America."

Then, in 2008, a man who asks to be elected as the leader of that place called America, announces that it is his intention to "change" it. What many didn't consider was that his intent was to make it more like the places they had fled.

Dr. Thomas Sowell:

"Can you imagine a man who had never run any kind of organization, large or small, taking it upon himself to fundamentally change all kinds of organizations in a huge and complex economy? Yet that is what Barack Obama did when he said, 'We are going to change the United States of America!' This was not 'The Audacity of Hope.' It was the audacity of hype."- Thomas Sowell

Also, the "height of audacity" ......

But what's the problem here, people? The guy is a Leninist ideologue! This is about taking apart the checks and balances of our government and society so that he and his secret politburo can pursue and seize total power.

There's nothing befuddled or schmoozily misguided about these people around Obama. They know exactly what they are doing, and it has zippo to do with foreign countries, and everything to do with consolidating his standing in key oppositional "out-group" constituencies in the United States: Moslems, gays, feminists, Communists, Chicanos, blacks, ex-convicts -- anyone with a serious beef with the American majority who can be recruited and enlisted. Look at the surveys of U.S. Moslem opinion -- they're solid behind Obama, so are blacks. Are Chicanos and feminists going to vote GOP? Hell, no.
