Michelle, Thy Name Is Narcissism

Senator Obama is abroad enjoying his foreign policy tour. (It is presumed he will locate the other seven states while in the "old country.") But while he is away, his wife cannot help but speak out on his behalf. And like always, she served up a doozy of a speech last week:

The campaigns of Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain, the Republican candidate, are making several visits to Colorado, considered among key battleground states. Colorado is GOP-leaning, but has a Democratic governor, Legislature and elected Democrat Ken Salazar to the U.S. Senate in 2004.

During the fundraiser, Obama said the contrasts between her husband and McCain are great. "We have one candidate who essentially is telling us every day that the world as it is just fine. That what we've been doing for the last eight years is fine," Obama said. "Stay the course. Don't make too many changes. "And then we have this other candidate -- Barack Obama -- who is saying every day that the world as it is not right. It's not good enough," she said.

Obama rattled off a list of areas where she believes the nation has been underperforming during the two terms of President Bush: education, health care and the economy.

"I wish we had time to be divided. I wish we had time to be upset. To be angry. To be disappointed. I wish we did," Obama said. "Because if we had time for that, then things wouldn't be so bad right now. Instead, we're in a place where another four or eight years of the world as it is will devastate the life of some child."

This is what turned me off from ever becoming a Democrat. It is the victim card, and it is based around their idea that they can solve all the world's problems and make this some sort of utopia for everyone. If one person suffers that is simply wrong; it is one person too many. What they fail to grasp is that we have had countries around the world try this before, and it has not worked out too well. The Soviets tried it, and many people suffered under that regime. The Chinese and North Koreans have tried it, and no one can say there has not been suffering in either nation.

Utopianism is the driving force behind Communism and socialism. It always has been. In an effort to make everyone "equal" the lessers in society are grounded down; trampled and forgotten by the elites, and we all know who the elites will be in Michelle Obama's eyes. There are the haves and the have nots, and God forbid she and her husband become the have nots. She might not be proud of her country any longer.

Toss this bite in with the rest of them. Indeed, loop them all together and let people hear this woman. She loves her husband enough to buy into the ideology he believes in most. It is not the politics of hope and change. There is no hope in what he claims to promise, and the only change he offers is the wrong sort that will lead this nation down a different path. And that path is hardly the one the Founding Fathers had for us. For them, we were the beacon of freedom in the world. In Senator Obama's eyes, and his wife's apparently, we are a nation that needs to tend to the downtrodden of the world more than we do. (This despite the fact that this nation gives more in terms of relief and charity than any other nation on the face of the planet.)

His intentions for this nation are not what the Framers had in mind. It is not what this nation stands for. And his wife has nary a clue about what this nation is truly about and what we really offer the world. We might not be perfect when it comes to taking care of the less fortunate, but they will not be better any way you look at it. Nor will they be able to take care of every child. Playing the "victocrat" card may garner them a couple more supporters. It might even win them a couple more votes. But when the average voter sees the hubris these two are shoveling they will not stick around these two very long.

When Democrats hold up the children as an example you can bet that means one thing, and one thing only -- you will pay through the nose.

A tip of the hat to Captain Ed for pointing this story out.
