The curtain has come down on what can best be described as a brief un-American moment in our history. That moment began in the fall of 2008, with the great financial panic, and gave rise to the Barack Obama phenomenon.
.. The speed with which some of his devotees have turned on himand their unwillingness to own up to what their infatuation had wroughtis nothing short of astounding.
There was cultural "cool" and racial absolution for the white professional classes ... There was understandable racial pride on the part of the African-American community...
The white working class had been slow to be convinced. The technocracy and elitism of Mr. Obama's campaignindeed of his whole personatroubled that big constituency, much more, I believe, than did his race and name...
Mr. Obama .. had won an election, but he took it as a plebiscite granting him a writ to remake the basic political compact of this republic.
Mr. Obama's self-regard, and his reading of his mandate, overwhelmed all restraint...Better ram down sweeping social programsa big liberal agenda before the people stirred to life again.
But no sooner had the country recovered its poise, it drew a line for Mr. Obama. The "bluest" of states, Massachusetts, sent to Washington a senator who was unapologetic in his assertion that it was more urgent to hunt down terrorists than to provide for their legal defense.
Then the close call on Christmas Day ..demonstrated that the terrorist threat had not receded. The president did his best to recover: We are at war, he suddenly proclaimed. Nor were we in need of penance abroad... The generosity of the American response to Haiti, .. was a stark reminder that this remains an exceptional nation that needs no apologies in distant lands...

The itty bitty man-child behind the grand deception of the great Oz.
Icarus on strings. Well done.
I want to be there the day Obama discovers he is only a man, NOTHING MORE! Maybe he will also discover he has knees and get down on them before the REAL God and beg HIS forgiveness.
Obama’s a “man”? I don’t know what era you’re from, but I think you call it “Metrosexual” now. Man, my u-know-what. Calling him a “man” is a direct insult to John Wayne. Now HE was a MAN.
"Look Dorothy, this machine was necessary to get my message out to the teleprompter. Without machines, nothing ever gets done."
Loved this comment:
“Stinking power” came to mind.
So, the flogging of the economy will continue until prosperity is restored....
Hey is Dorothy Chrissy Matthews in red holding Olbermann. Now wait. That is just an insult to Dorothy and cute, sweet, TOTO. Pelosi is the tin man but never finds her heart. Reed is the lion but never finds courage (or conviction).
Oh, man... Obama as Icarus flying too close to a par can...too funny!
The Obammunist has already given notice that he will treat the impeachment process as an attempted coup; see State Department actions in Honduras.
Dorothy is the American Public finding out they don’t call him Zer0 for nothing.
The Chicago thug is walking LIE with the gift of a snake oil salesman that fancies himself a lesser god.
Only fools voted for this POS, and now we will be lucky to survive.
The “spell” of this POS had greatly to do with the MSM creating the whole thing in the first place.
I LIKE it!!! You're going deep, iconic and have accurately scored the return back to Kansas right there! You've the wisdom of the ages in that one.
Ah. Now listen to you smarty. Yes. Very well done.
That is absolutely correct and I sincerely hope that they go down with him.
You have a point. I was being kind.
We will cross that bridge when and if we come to it.
