Obama's "failures" are baffling only if you presuppose he wanted America to prosper: If you see he wanted to damage the vision of America (American exceptionalism) his parents hated, his mentors hated, his close friends and advisers hated, and that he himself continues to despise -- then you can see how successful he has been.

"You didn't build that," in other words, "don't let anyone tell you that it's businesses that create jobs." What do you want to bet the taxes paid more than equaled the "benefits" of which you speak?
I used to think liberals' elitism was manifest in doing things "for their own good" (those stupid people clinging to their guns and God), but I no longer think so. I have come to see that is just another lie -- they're not doing it for us out of a benevolent belief that we would be better off -- they're doing it for themselves. It's good to be King, don'tchaknow.

Wouldn't that 10% of the solidly-Democrat, no-questions-asked Black vote be more than made up for by the increase in solidly-Democrat, no-questions asked Hispanic vote?

What was that guy's name? Oh, yeah, Al Franken . . . just keep "counting" until you "find" enough votes.

I think the key phrase there is "only an idiot." What I saw was an absolute narcissist -- he not only doesn't care about what the voters think, he doesn't care about the damage he continues to do to the Democrats, who are, one would assume, the closest thing he has to friends. A narcissist is a man who cares about no one but himself, and even the media (although they are loath to admit it) are coming to see that.

More to the point of the column -- less recrimination about party politics -- there can be a big difference between "feeling" safe and being safe. Government aims to often for making the citizenry "feel" safe rather than actually taking measures to provide safety. Too many people with government power seem to feel that if they hassle the citizens, the citizens will assume they are safer than if they were not hassled. I would like to see a robust debate someday regarding exactly how many Glock 19s and how much Semtex can be packed into the heel of a shoe.
Who said, "It's not the votes that count; it's who counts the votes"?
You could rape, torture, and commit mass murder on national TV and still be elected on the Democrat ticket in Chicago.
I am constantly amazed at the way some cling to the story even after all the support for it is gone: The "gentle giant" Michael Brown committed a strong-arm robbery minutes before and was likely assaulting the police officer, the choirboy Treyvon was pounding the "white Hispanic's" head against the sidewalk, the famous Duke lacrosse players' rape case ended up getting the District Attorney disbarred. When people cling to these discredited allegations of racism it likely shows a desperate need on their part: If they can't blame their circumstances on some external evil, then where are they?
