Rush Limbaugh confirmed it on his broadcast on December 4, 2006. Pollster Kellyanne Conway giggled to my face when I told her my thoughts at the New York City "Ball for Life" in the spring of 2007. Salem talk-show host Hugh Hewitt didn't believe me, nor did Fox Radio talker John Gibson, nor did hundreds of other pundits and bloggers. But I never doubted it for a minute, and as I predicted almost three full years ago, the unthinkable is a blink away from becoming reality:
"Barring several series of near seizure-like corrections, Barack Obama will take the Presidential oath of office in January of 2009. It will be a cold January morning, his beautiful wife and daughters will be by his side and they will shiver as he places his hand on the Bible and swears to uphold the Constitution of the United States. His presidency that will follow, if reflective of anything at all of his legislative record, will then seek to dismantle that same Constitution."Friday while running some errands in the city I flipped on "The Talk of New York - AM 970 'The Apple'" (the flagship station for my nationally syndicated show with actor Stephen Baldwin) and heard fellow talker Michael Medved become quite animated over a clip he had just played. Since I had not caught the full context of what he was referring to I was glad he decided to replay it one more time. It was Barack Obama:
"...only five more days, until we fundamentally transform this country."My Lovely Bride happened to be listening at the same time and later Friday evening, with a look a gross concern she asked me what I thought he meant.
I thought he had been pretty clear. I've known this since he was a state legislator.
Barack Obama is not the quasi-reasonable moderate he has attempted to run his campaign as. He has adopted the language, methods, and most importantly the philosophies of the most fringe elements of American politics--though they would make him seem mainstream in Europe.
He is and has been for the last decade an elitist, though he uses the disguise of caring about one's community.
