    Obama's Victory
    An Editorial _ A View From Across The Pond
    The London Daily Mail

    A victory for the hysterical Oprah Winfrey, the mad racist preacher Jeremiah Wright, the mainstream media who abandoned any sense of objectivity long ago, Europeans who despise America largely because they depend on her, comics who claim to be dangerous and fearless but would not dare attack genuinely powerful special interest groups.

    A victory for Obama-worshippers everywhere. A victory for the cult of the cult. A man who has done ! little with his life but has written about his achievements as if he had found the cure for cancer in between winning a marathon and building a nuclear reactor with his teeth.

    Victory for style over substance, hyperbole over history, rabble-raising over reality.

    A victory for Hollywood , the most dysfunctional community in the world. Victory for Streisand, Spielberg, Soros and Sarandon.

    Victory for those who prefer welfare to will and interference to independence. For those who settle for group think and herd mentality rather than those who fight for individual initiative and the right to be out of step with meager political fashion.

    Victory for a man who is no friend of freedom. He and his people have already stated that media has to be controlled so as to be balanced, without realizing the extraordinary irony within that statement. Like most liberal zealots, the Obama worshippers constantly speak of Fox and Limbaugh, when the vast bulk ! of television stations and newspapers are drastically liberal ! and anti -conservative. Senior Democrat Chuck Schumer said that just as pornography should be censored, so should talk radio. In other words, one of the few free and open means of popular expression may well be cornered and beaten by bullies who even in triumph cannot tolerate any criticism and opposition.

    A victory for those who believe the state is better qualified to raise children than the family, for those who prefer teachers' unions to teaching and for those who are naively convinced that if the West is sufficiently weak towards its enemies, war and terror will dissolve as quickly as the tears on the face of a leftist celebrity.

    A victory for social democracy even after most of Europe has come to the painful conclusion that social democracy leads to mediocrity, failure, unemployment, inflation, higher taxes and economic stagnation. A victory for intrusive lawyers, banal sentimentalists, social extremists and urban snobs.

    I didn't realize anyone from over there felt that way.
  3. That was damn good!
  4. Spot on.

    As in the way I do.
  6. Seems like a pretty hysterical rant to me. Bush and Co. fucked things up pretty good. Let's see what happens in a couple of years instead of laying the blame for the fall of the West at Barack Obama's feet... before he takes office.

    Obama seems to be able induce hysteria in otherwise essentially rational people. Witness the posts by gnome recently. The guy has gone off the deep end about this. Hmmm... I wonder why that is?
  7. Victory for style over substance, hyperbole over history, rabble-raising over reality.

    I agree with Jack Welch. It was a fine "marketing" strategy electing Obama. I am relieved it's not Hillary in office.

    Regardless of who wrote the editorial this needed to be said.
  8. Why wait a few years?

    I can give you the answer right now.

    Anything bad that happens in the next 4 years will be blamed on the Bush legacy, and anything good that happens will be because Obama saved us.
  9. And why not? Everything going on now, before he has even taken office, is being blamed on Obama. And it's not like W didn't leave a pile of dirty dishes in the sink.
