Perhaps, being a Chicago crowd, they knew some of the things that 52.5 per cent of America prefers not to know

What if they held a revolution and (a big) nobody came? Peter HItchens comments on the nothing that is Barack Obama.

Just look at his sermon by the shores of Lake Michigan. He really did talk about a ‘new dawn’, and a ‘timeless creed’ (which was ‘yes, we can’). He proclaimed that ‘change has come’. He revealed that, despite having edited the Harvard Law Review, he doesn’t know what ‘enormity’ means. He reached depths of oratorical drivel never even plumbed by our own Mr Blair, burbling about putting our hands on the arc of history (or was it the ark of history?) and bending it once more toward the hope of a better day (Don’t try this at home).

I am not making this up. No wonder that awful old hack Jesse Jackson sobbed as he watched. How he must wish he, too, could get away with this sort of stuff.

And it was interesting how the President-elect failed to lift his admiring audience by repeated – but rather hesitant – invocations of the brainless slogan he was forced by his minders to adopt against his will – ‘Yes, we can’. They were supposed to thunder ‘Yes, we can!’ back at him, but they just wouldn’t join in. No wonder. Yes we can what exactly?


One ray of light to consider: This infiltrator - this Manchurian Candidate - will not be much use to his Cuban masters or their Weather Underground proxies. There is a roster of Chicago mindworms and the rest of America's professional parasite caste ahead of them in line. I suspect these American cultural Marxists will treat the Stalinist variety (in the form of the Dirección General De Inteligencia) as a speedbump on the way to Starbucks. And I doubt Bill Ayers will allow the revolution to overturn his tenured existence.

As to the man himself, to call him an empty suit is an insult to empty suits. At this point it is impossible to know what he will do beyond the certainty we will hear the refrain, "I am not the Obama I thought I knew." But there is worse yet than him. In the annals of spinelessness some names will be eternal and at their forefront will be the names of onservatives who folded before this nothing - and that goes double for the ones stumbling over their own virtue to insist we respect him in his stolen office. One advantage of my Canadian citizenship is I do not have to pretend this man is my President.

Hillary... attack!

Update: Protein Wisdom on Barack Obama and onservartive self-righteous civility.

This “good man” was involved in ACORN blackmail schemes. With an attempt to fraudulently undermine the Second Amendment by gaming court rulings. He got rich off of schemes that led to the mortgage crisis — then stood by and let others fix it in order to keep his hands clean during the final stages of an election. He has thrown in with race hustlers,”reformers” who believe that domestic terrorism was a valid form of expression, odious foreign potentates –

There is nothing at all noble about praising a man and a party who reviles you simply because in doing so you appear noble. Jews have tried that. And it’s often ended with skeletons and ash, or the twisted wreckage of a bus in Tel Aviv.
