We are now on the downhill side of the Obama regime and that alone is a nice thing.The euphoric unreality of four years ago is happily gone, but replaced by a steely resolve to do as much taking advantage of crises as possible with all the flexibility of a unitary executive unfettered by any more of those pesky elections or an eed to even pay lip service to the Constitution.
Yeah I am bitter and quite properly disgusted. The American people bought the line of BS that says you can have all the government you want and you don't have to pay for it. We will shake down those dirty rich plutocrats and you can mooch and loot to your hearts content. And don't you worry your pretty little head about the math that evil Paul Ryan keeps bringing up. Just because the "rich" don't have enough money left to take doesn't mean you can't have your cake and theirs too.
The bill will come due for the six trillion dollars Obama borrowed last term and God knows how much more in the next one, and that reckoning is going to open some eyes.
Barry's speech was mostly left boilerplate, and light on national security. I think my favorite bit, and it pretty much sums up our foreign policy prospects, was this gem.
This generation of Americans has been tested by crises that steeled our resolve and proved our resilience. A decade of war is now ending.
Who won? Sadly, I think we know the answer to that.
