“No one has good faith but him. No one is sincere but him. Doesn’t this get boring, even to him?”
As Peggy Noonan says, he sounds a lot like Richard Nixon: Paranoid and self-pitying. But even Nixon negotiated. Barry refuses to negotiate. He scolds.
I expect it’s his Affirmative Action background. When you’re used to being handed free what you want you forget how to work for it. If you ever knew.
I won’t watch his inauguration. I don’t care what King Scold has to say. It’s never been very helpful. I remember that he ran in ’08 on a kind of bring-us-together platform. Inspired a lot of people. Then, in his first week in office he reversed course: He attacked Rush Limbaugh and Fox News, both of which drive his fellow Leftists crazy. Heh.
In last year’s campaign, Barry was an attack dog all the way (nary a hint of bring-us-together), and he’s kept it up ever since. Nothing new for him. Apparently, he’s trying to rally the Leftists to vote for enough Democrats to take back the House in 2014 so he can ram son-of-Obamacare through or start confiscating guns. Or else he’s really just Nixon with a tan.
UPDATE: His inaugural speech: Partisan, pedestrian platitudes. Yep.
