Barack Obama and Racial Hatred
hen I step back, I see one of the strangest sights I havewitnessed in contemporary American politics. Among theDemocrats: grumbling and disenchantment about
ama beingunwilling to lead thecountry off a cliff,
even as he saved it from recession.That recession created massive fissures: persistent high joblessness,general dissatisfaction with regulatory enforcement, mortgagebankers parading home owners to foreclosures, and an oft-repeatedassumption that the smooth talker was milquetoast when it came toaction. Among the Republicans: a willingness by social conservativesto endorse a serial adulterer, a scheming thief who is amegalomaniac, a Ph. D. who tells the kinds of lies not seen sinceeighth grade, a willingness to ignore the extremes of his legislativepositions on centerpiece Republican issues, his relish of large,activist government, and his claims of constitutional violations soabsurd they border on treason.
