Before he booted the press, he got warmed up. He said, "The reason politics does not work in Washington ... is because we have one party that has no agenda other than making government not work -- whose primary function, primary purpose right now, if you distill their ideology, comes down to saying 'no' to any efforts to help ordinary families get ahead."

This from the man whose policies have quagmired jobs and the economy for nearly six years, whose spending is bankrupting us and whose dependency-generating agenda is destroying the middle class. Imagine what he said when the press wasn't in the room.

But that's not all. When Obama is with his progressive buds, he also lets his socialistic hair down. He made some candid statements that reveal his utopian mindset -- the leftist fantasy world he continues to inhabit despite years of hard reality's smacking his policies in the face with failure after failure.

It was reported that he said at his Seattle fundraiser, "Part of people's concern is just the sense that around the world, the old order isn't holding and we're not quite where we need to be in terms of a new order that's based on a different set of principles, that's based on a sense of common humanity, that's based on economies that work for all people."

Why are some people so slow in coming around to Obama's real beliefs and true intentions? You don't need to be a cryptologist to understand what Obama was saying here.

Most of us, especially Christians, agree that there is a common humanity. We are all made in God's image and entitled to equal dignity. But considering his other statements over the years and his record, we know he means something different -- that no nation, including America, is exceptional. Nor is there anything particularly imperative about safeguarding our national sovereignty, which explains his virtually open-borders mentality.

How about "a different set of principles" and "economies that work for all people"? Just what did he mean by that? Well, socialism doesn't work for any people save the ruling class, much less all people, but he doesn't grasp that. He seems to regard it as a gross injustice that there are wide disparities of income and wealth not only within the United States but also between Americans and peoples of other nations.

He believes that the United States should share its wealth, vastly more than it already has and does, with other peoples of the world, patently oblivious to the facts that we will have little wealth if we continue with his socialistic policies and that other nations would be far wealthier if they would turn to free market principles themselves.

You can slice it any way you want to, but Obama makes clear over and over again that he rejects fundamental American principles and wants to employ "a different set of principles" as he remakes this nation according to his quixotic vision.

In one sense, it's quite inaccurate to characterize Obama's policies as failures, because he is doing precisely what he intends to do. He is not failing; we are. America is. And though this will be news to the persistently naive among us, he is just getting warmed up, emboldened and defiant rather than discouraged and chastened by his growing unpopularity.

Though he does many things under the radar, he performs so much mischief in public that no one has any excuse to be ignorant.
