The Obamas’ Pride

Michael writes:

Seldom have I heard a politician (or his or her partner) speak in such an incredible arrogant manner.

Here’s the quote: “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change.”

For the first time in her adult life? Because her husband may win his party’s nomination and after that the general elections?

Considering the nature of liberalism, its massive wealth and income transfers, over-regulation, and agenda-based politics, a vote for Obama is a actually vote against hope.

What hope is there in voting yourself a welfare entitlement from the government?  From the economic and individual responsibility perspectives Obama represents the exact opposite of hope.

Socially, being a black male, Obama’s success is indeed something that all Americans who have voted for him – as well as those who could vote for him if his policies were wiser – can be proud of.  But at what cost?
