Because they believe in change and progress, and their own ability to actually pull it off, Democrats are by nature self-centered. If a Democrat is presented with and unalterable fact that displeases them, or an absolutely empirically provable fallacy that fits their agenda and narrative, they will fight tooth and nail to advance the lie: Reality be damned! Presently we have a prime example of such thinking (or pathology) occupying the White House. President Obama is without a doubt one of the most ego-centric, narcissistic individuals I have ever seen in my 32 years on this planet, forget Presidents, I'm talking everybody (Lady Gaga could take lessons). And he has more than his fair share of delusions.
So, what has Obama given us, what is his legacy? First, a quick review: FDR gave us the beginnings of the welfare state and a new and improved way of looking at the Constitution."What's that, putting mustard that was processed two states over on your hotdog at a cookout? Hey, now we can regulate charcoal grills...and the charcoal and the utensils and your cousin's beer consumption etc., etc." Truman gave us the Marshall Plan, not too bad. JFK gave us LBJ and LBJ gave us the modern welfare state. Jimmy Carter gave us Islamo-Fascism and Bill Clinton gave us a wealthy, belligerent, slave-labor, North Korea supporting China (or as the U.S. Treasury refers to them "our banker").
What Obama has given us is a chicken in every pot (courtesy of the food stamp program) and an Iran on every corner. In case you haven't been reading the London papers, there's this bunch taking over the Middle East called the Muslim Brotherhood. Their motto is "Allah is our objective; the Prophet is our leader; the Quran is our law; Jihad is our way; dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope". Now I'm no fan of Assad or Mubarak, and I know I'm just an in-bred redneck with an extra y chromosome, but these people just don't sound that good to me. If one takes the view that Islam is fundamentally incompatible with liberal democracy, and I do, then an authoritarian relatively PEACEFUL regime is preferable to an aggressive anti-Western theocracy like Iran.
So there you have it, another gift that keeps on giving from a brain-dead, out of his depth Democrat. Our children will paying for this one a long time to come. Thanks Barry, your legacy is secure.
