there's a post with these two bits that just annoy the hell out of me. First,
Professor Obama, who will seek re-election on the 100th anniversary of Wilson’s 1912 election, understands, which makes him melancholy. Speaking to Katie Couric on Feb. 7, Obama said:
“I would have loved nothing better than to simply come up with some very elegant, academically approved approach to health care, and didn’t have any kinds of legislative fingerprints on it, and just go ahead and have that passed. But that’s not how it works in our democracy. Unfortunately, what we end up having to do is to do a lot of negotiations with a lot of different people.”
Makes it pretty plain, doesn't he? He doesn't want to propose, to lead: he wants to dictate. He's so brilliant he doesn't want to be bothered with this republic mess, he wants to give orders(remember "I won"?) to the subordinates to be carried out without argument.
“… the Constitution allows for many things, but what it does not allow is the most revealing. The so-called Founders did not allow for economic freedom. While political freedom is supposedly a cornerstone of the document, the distribution of wealth is not even mentioned. While many believed that the new Constitution gave them liberty, it instead fitted them with the shackles of hypocrisy.”
Let's see... in Obama's world "You keep what you work for" is hypocrisy and immoral, but "You work, and we'll take what you earn and distribute it as we think best" is freedom...
Hey, Obama, you use that word, but I do not think it means what you think it does.
"...so-called Founders..." my aching ass.
