The downhill slide is hard to stop. Obama is racing to the bottom and his supporters may try to deny it but there is broad polling that can not be refuted. And then there is this. What’s happening is the American people are witnessing the horrible results of statist policies and they are saying no mas. The constant faux pas of Obama and the incomprehensibility of many of his statements are hastening his decline. Talk about great expectations gone wrong. The Obama failures are epic in scale. He is now President Zero.
The liberal legacy soon to visit America has been displayed writ large in the London rioting. The consequences of the welfare state combined with illiteracy and a moral vacuum were predicted nearly 50 years ago by Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s infamous “Report”, The Negro Family: The Case For National Action. Moynihan focused his attention on urban black society, the fatal breakdown of the family unit, and was vilified by the left for doing so. Moynihan’s insights should not confined to the black community. His observations would equally apply to Britain today and throughout much of post-modern America.
Today’s black unemployment rate ranges from 20-40% depending on who’s counting and where. What have the trillions devoted to our welfare state achieved for them? More illiteracy, more broken single parent families, more crime, more dependency, more rage. And now, we’re bankrupt. What next?
What next is not more of the same. The welfare, entitlement and central planning state is a perpetual resource sink paying no dividends. Flush Obama and turn out the lights on the Progressive Century. The party is over. –Geoffrey Hunt, American Thinker
Barak Hussein Obama . . . America’s first black president. History has been made. Now, fade to black.
