Barack Obama has lost his promise. He has lost his momentum. He has lost his touch. He has lost his filibuster-proof Senate majority. He has lost his first year in office. Tonight, he lost his grip on reality. -- Michael Gerson
I neither watched nor listened to the Obamanoid in Chief last night as I was writing. I skimmed the speech transcript early this morning and I must say I agree with Michael Gerson. This guy isn't living in the same universe as the rest of us, at not least in his own head.
So they will continue to double down on disaster with the same predictable results, will they? If so, the twin demonstrations in April in DC will be so huge as to be undeniable by anybody but a delusional narcissist.
We will now see how many Democrats will drink the Health Care, Cap-and-Tax and Amnesty for Illegals KoolAid cocktail in the coming year. Not enough, I suspect, for Obama's purposes but still enough to keep things riled up for the November elections. If we have elections, that is.
One wonders what Obama's puppetmasters think about their Pinocchio's delusions that he is a real leader. Hillary may suspect something . . . I read she stayed away from the Capitol chamber last night.
By itself the speech means nothing to us. As an indicator of unreality leading to the possibility of administration folly and deadly misadventure, however?
The worst is yet to come.
