Wrong man for the job
There has been much speculation about what a Barack Obama presidency might look like. After carefully weighing his public pronouncements and policy statements and assessing his temperament, I can make some prognostications.
An America governed by Mr. Obama would, in time, have the health care system of Canada, the tax rates of France, the foreign policy of Venezuela and the moral and social climate of the Netherlands. And once that nuisance of a southern border is officially disregarded, we’ll have the gross national product of Mexico.
I haven’t had the pleasure of reading Barack’s memoir, “The Audacity of Hype”— oops, “Hope”. But his audacity defines him and is without precedent. Here is a man new to the national political scene who wants the trophy without having played the game. He wants the victory without having waged the battle. And he wants the dividends without having made the investment. I don’t care whether the man is black, white, green or yellow. Have our national — and personal — standards and expectations sunk so low?
