Speak for Yourself, Mr. President

Even in the midst of a cross-country move, I can't resist commenting on President Obama's newest mind-meld with Jimmy Carter, President Malaise.

At a San Francisco fundraiser yesterday, the President had this to say:


Speak for yourself, Mr. President.  Our ambition, imagination and will is completely intact -- it's just that we're saddled with a leader who neither understands nor respects the American character, and then projects his inadequacies onto us.

President Obama's attitude is reminiscent of the apocryphal story of a soldier's mother who, watching troops march in formation, commented, "Oh, look, everyone's out of step but my Johnny."

The American people aren't the ones who are "out of step" here.
