The Myth of Obama

An excellent article at Commentary which describes, in as plain an english as I've yet found, exactly why Barack Obama is not - and never was - even 1/10 the giant his supporters insisted he was. Obama was supposed to be the leader of a new age of Democrat rule, as well as the transformer of a tarnished, broken America into something more perfect, more glorious than anything we could have imagined.

Alas, it was all a dream that ended far sooner than anyone could have imagined:

2010 is shaping up to be a perfectly awful year for Democrats. It’s a safe bet that in response they and their allies will lash out in rage, angry at the perceived injustice of it all, furious at the fate that has befallen them. They will blame Obama’s predecessor, Republicans in Congress, the conservative movement, angry white males, Fox News, Sarah Palin’s tweets, and the wrong alignment of the stars. It won’t work.

Having created a myth, they must now live with its unmasking.

The Massachusetts Miracle

Ladies and gentleman, the next Senator from Massachusetts.

An amazing night, an amazing win. For the first time since last year's election, I finally feel a sense of hope. Hope that we will finally start to turn away from the reckless and ruinous path that this country has been on since January 2009.

Tonight was a big step. I trust it will be in the right direction.
