Halfway Through Obama

I must admit, that's a fairly optimistic title. Still, things seem to be swaying that way, with even many former Obamaphiles jumping ship. When Europe's leaders have to scold a U.S. president for overspending, we're in it neck high, my friends.

Obama's problem is, and likely always will be, that he talks like the mainstream and governs like a socialist. He knows the majority will never swallow government health care, the socialization of GM and the banking industry, and the waste of untold billions on stimuli that don't stimulate. Americans know that government exists not to run our lives but to allow us the freedom to do so ourselves. Obama has taken exactly the opposite course. He admits to the unpopularity of his ideas by couching them in conservative-esque language.

The mid-term elections will most likely restore a conservative majority to at least one of the two bodies in the legislative branch. If this doesn't happen, I would advise the Republicans to pull an Al-Gore and check carefully for fraud. Why is it that the Democrats always accuse others of voter fraud, but whenever it actually happens (a la ACORN), it's them doing it? (That was a rhetorical question. I'm sure you can answer it yourself.)

I, unlike many of my right-wing fellows, do not believe Obama is evil or part of some vast conspiracy. He's just wrong. He lies because that's what politicians do to achieve their goals, at least in too many cases. I'm sure his copy of Rules for Radicals is well worn and quite dog-eared. Still, as hard as he tries to convince us to the contrary, we can see right through him. He is, and always has been, a looney liberal. He belongs back in the halls of academia, not in the White House. It will take an act of stupidity on the part of the Right to keep him in office. That scares me; there's nothing Republicans do better than fumbling the ball one yard from the goal line.

  1. Listening to Rush Limbaugh lately and the circular firing squad that is the Republican primary, it seems we're in the midst of a fumble. It sucks to be right sometimes.
