Dear Rhonda –
You lament “the often-absent leadership of President Obama” and speak of your expectation that “Congress must stop enabling our addiction to spending and debt“.
Obama has exhibited leadership, just not the kind of leadership we want. The majority of congress critters, czars and appointees are working his plan:
Obama is not just a Leftist, like Samantha Power. Obama is an orthodox Marxist. He is on the other side of the looking glass, thinking his thoughts in Marxist terms, reaching back through the looking glass and playing our “false consciousness” like a fiddle.
He imagines a world reduced to the bedrock of class struggle, where the cloud of bourgeois ideology lifts, and history is unstuck and moving again according to the laws of scientific socialism.
He could care less how anyone judges him on the “false consciousness” side of the looking glass.
Barack Obama is perhaps the best trained and most dedicated Marxist since Lenin. And he is in power.
Don’t fall into the trap of believing “they just don’t get it”. There is a clear Presence of Malice in everything this president does.
