Krauthammer: Obama’s Second Inaugural was an “Ode to Big Government”

Obama's speech was disjoint and illogical. He spoke of the safety net making us better. There was a safety net before FDR's New Deal. It was private charity. This charity was there to help get people back on their feet and back to being productive members of society. Obama pretends that if government doesn't provide it, it doesn't exist. If the GOP wanted to win the election, they need to nominate someone that will excite the base and not come off as Dem-lite. Sure elections have consequences but so does the nominating process. Romney was Dem-lite.
