Obama’s Detachment from Reality: SOTU Analysis from PJMedia


I wanted to quickly bring this link to your attention since this has been a busy week – and my analysis of the speech is taking a different tack then most! Breaking it down paragraph by paragraph. That takes awhile. So in the interim, have this one analysis by Barry Rubin from PJMedia.

He describes Obama as a president with an unrealistic agenda that is just not American, and he has it at a time America is facing unprecedented crisis. Very apt description and very much worth the read and some thought.

I SHOULD CAVEAT – I’m not just lazily saying ‘The President is UnAmerican duurrr’ I mean that in the context that his ideas just don’t resonate with the ideology of the country. Obama has far leftist sympathies and notions of economic fairness and social justice in a country that has classically valued the free market and capitalism. The president also continues to flirt with this odd notion of executive supremacy and circumventing congress, bucking the checks and balances built into the very fabric of this nation. America needs to be careful this election.
