The Wolf at the Door

This is compelling. I'm not sure how much of it I am willing to buy, but the points are pretty much spot-on. We "don't want to stoop to their level", but our failure to do so has meant defeat at nearly every turn.

The Conspiracy Theorist in me says this President is the culmination of a 50 year plan. It began with the Leftist takeovers of education and the media. At the same time, various groups from "Big Environmental" to NOW to the Gay Rights and (alleged) "Pro-Choice" movements undermined traditional values with just enough "good" reforms to keep the electorate happy. The appointment (for life) of Leftist judges, the use of political correctness to stifle debate and the dividing of this country into, "Interest Groups" pitted against each other for money and power set the stage for where we are today.

Tell me where I'm wrong.

You're wrong. Obama is a moderate. He hasn't tried to impose federal gun control legislation (it's not even on the agenda). He isn't freeing the prisoners at Gitmo; he's finding other places to imprison them. His increased federal spending is a drop in the bucket compared to W's. The culmination of a left-wing conspiracy would have put Dennis Kucinich in the White House.

Seriously, Jill? Spending is right here:

The Obamacare system will make the Medicaid/Social Security/Medicare spending look tame.

Why find other places to imprison Gitmo detainees? Only to put them in the US court system where inevitably some are to be released.

Further, Obama's cap and trade and energy plans will bankrupt the country while weakening our security and global competitiveness.

I will admit that Kucinich may have been worse, but time will tell.
