Obama's perspective on America, whites, our culture and history, is mainstream black male. The delusion is in our refusal to accept the the harsh reality, major and insurmountable differences between us. To paraphase what Lincoln told a visiting delegation of freedmen in 1863, "Our people are so different, the gulf so great, I sorry, we cannot live together." (after the war) This is our future, a demographic race, not one of ideas and the character of a person.

riichard 1088 - There need not be any demographic race, as long as the majority group (white people) play the same game as everyone else. Theodore Roosevent was right that squabbling nationalities of hyphenated Americans would bring our nation to ruin, but squabbling races exacting constant pressure on the majority wilol eventually bring ruin also, so if the majority would just join the fray, not even to push back, but to just refuse to give anything more away, there will be relative peace and quiet.

Being president was always easy for Barack Obama.

But delivering on the big words has been considerably tougher.

In part, Obama’s troubles stem from the rigidity of the left’s broken ideas. They admit of no compromise. Consequently, Obama has subsumed his whole personality into an unworkable progressive ideology that was dead outside of academia- and news rooms- until he resurrected it.

It’s the idea that a benign government of technocrats and academics can engineer near perfect justice at the trivial cost in liberty and money to most of us. 

Everyone gets a mortgage, even though that’s an idea...
