Melanie Phillips on Barack Obama

Quote of the Day

I haven't run across a column before by Melanie Phillips, a UK columnist for the Daily Mail. This one struck me as the most accurate, concise summary to date of Barack Obama and the current election out of the over 1 million words I've digested this past year.
You have to pinch yourself – a Marxisant [sic] radical who all his life has been mentored by, sat at the feet of, worshiped with, befriended, endorsed the philosophy of, funded and been in turn funded, politically promoted and supported by a nexus comprising black power anti-white racists, Jew-haters, revolutionary Marxists, unrepentant former terrorists and Chicago mobsters, is on the verge of becoming President of the United States. And apparently it’s considered impolite to say so.
I'll be reading a lot more Melanie Phillips in the future. I hope I won't be reading much about Barack Obama in the future.

I have to add, though, that it isn't myself I want to pinch so much. I'm more inclined to want to pinch the heads of the millions of Americans who are lined up to vote for him.

Sure, Barack Obama is worse than radioactive virus-laden puke. But who has made him the leading contender for the office of President of the United States? About half the American electorate who are apparently either too lazy to read widely available material, or actually want socialism, or who are simply so disgusted (rightly so) with the Republican administration and Congress of the last 6-8 years that they have deluded themselves into believing that anything would be better.

Frankly, I'm half expecting civil war within the next 20 years if things continue as they have been.

I hope you've cancelled your subscription to cable news then. Unless you're only watching Hicktown TV, the chances of seeing the illustrious Barack Obama's face or hearing about his progressive policies are highly likely, and may hit you like a bullet train...if only.
