The Truth of Obama As Seen on January 20, 2009


This will end in tears. The Obama hysteria is not merely embarrassing to witness, it is itself contributory to the scale of the disaster that is coming.
What we are experiencing, in the deepening days of a global depression, is the desperate suspension of disbelief by people of intelligence – la trahison des clercs – in a pathetic effort to hypnotise themselves into the delusion that it will be all right on the night. It will not be all right.... It is questionable whether the present political system can survive the coming crisis. Whatever the solution, teenage swooning sentimentality over a celebrity cult has no part in it. The most powerful nation on earth is confronting its worst economic crisis under the leadership of its most extremely liberal politician, who has virtually no experience of federal politics. That is not an opportunity but a catastrophe. -- Gerald Warner on the Barack Obama inauguration: this Emperor has no clothes, it will all end in tears – Telegraph Blogs

Your Say

It's worth emphasizing that that was published on January 20, 2009.

These are frank, even ungracious, words: they have the one merit that, unlike almost everything else written today about Obama, they will not require to be eaten in the future.

In related news, 48% of our nation still thinks he should be reelected.

I shudder to think what it would take to change their minds.

Now there's a facepalm.

I can only console myself with the hope that this travesty will destroy the power of as many Democrats, and the racists and leftists in the media, as possible. But I repeat myself.

Tim, What is a dirtnap? I'd like 21st Century Military Folly for a thousand.

Is anyone familiar with Steven King's fictional "Castlerock, Maine?" He set a number of his novels there, principally, It.

Trying to convince otherwise rational friends that Obama was both a fraud and a menace was futile, and made me feel like one of the kids in Castlerock, with the adults pretending nothing was amiss.
