Bad president, bad!

Roger Kimball has the quote of the week (and it's only Monday!)

It's a longish quote, but well worth time:
If you can’t dislodge people from their attachment from so ostentatious a failure as the Great Society welfare project, how do you suppose you can dislodge them from their allegiance to a half-black international man of mystery with no visible qualifications to be president but who is the very incarnation of every leftist aspiration from the gospel of environmental economic suicide and hatred of the United States to an “evolving” metrosexual affirmation of polymorphous eroticism (has any other president dilated an “transsexuals” in his State of the Union speech?) to his embrace of an ideology—I mean Islam—diametrically opposed to America’s traditional commitment to limited government and individual liberty?

That’s a long-winded way of saying “good luck, it can’t be done.” Partisans of Obama will be with him to the bitter end no matter how ostentatious his lawlessness, how flagrant his incompetence, how surreal his proclamations, how disastrous his policies.

Say it without taking a breath (2nd 'from' in 1st line should probably be 'attachment to').

From the article, this is Obama's response to the new rising global Nazi threat (just like the 1930s threat only bigger):

"Ultimately these terrorist organizations will be defeated because they don’t have a vision that appeals to ordinary people. "

Defeated how?

...they don’t have a vision that appeals to ordinary people.

Well, Obo, the problem isn't with ordinary people, the problem is with islamist nutjobs!

Roger Kimball is right, but that's not the bad news.

The bad news is, a significant proportion of the population currently residing in America aren't Americans.

And that includes those who were born within the confines of the United States. The ones who are American by birth, but who have rejected their birthright.

And that ain't good at all.
