(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Noonan: when the Left stop supporting Obama

In a backwards stance, it seems the planet is falling down all about our ears:

That said, when Peggy Noonan in a WSJ Editorial calls Mr Obama "creepy," and writes that "Obama increasingly comes across as devious and dishonest," the paradigm and the narrative and the meme has somehow changed:
What is happening is that the president is coming across more and more as a trimmer, as an operator who's not operating in good faith. This is hardening positions and leading to increased political bitterness. And it's his fault, too. As an increase in polarization is a bad thing, it's a big fault.

Events of just the past 10 days have contributed to the shift. There was the open-mic conversation with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in which Mr. Obama pleaded for "space" and said he will have "more flexibility" in his negotiations once the election is over and those pesky voters have done their thing. On tape it looked so bush-league, so faux-sophisticated. When he knew he'd been caught, the president tried to laugh it off by comically covering a mic in a following meeting. It was all so . . . creepy.

If you jumped into a time machine to the day after the election, in November, 2012, and saw a headline saying "Obama Loses," do you imagine that would be followed by widespread sadness, pain and a rending of garments? You do not. Even his own supporters will not be that sad. It's hard to imagine people running around in 2014 saying, "If only Obama were president!" Including Mr. Obama, who is said by all who know him to be deeply competitive, but who doesn't seem to like his job that much. As a former president he'd be quiet, detached, aloof. He'd make speeches and write a memoir laced with a certain high-toned bitterness. It was the Republicans' fault. They didn't want to work with him.

This is a, truly, devastating piece. And yet an honest piece. Noonan was an early ObamaCon from the start and then, now, with her newest editorial, she writes from a position that indicates a visceral disagreement.

Not good for Mr Obama.

Frankly, I don't miss Bush quite so much. He spent like the proverbial drunken sailor and contributed HEAVILY to the national debt -- including spending BILLIONS of dollars, pissed away, on the "fight" against AIDS in Africa.

Yes, he was THAT stupid.

We are sleep-walking into one of THE most dangerous periods of our lives, in our national history.

And we predominantly do NOT realize this.

To the Bush effort we add this...
"...$823,200 in stimulus cash... will be used to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex. You can’t make this stuff up..."

Frogs eyes getting bigger, skin turning redder.

Good to see the Noonan turn around. I believe 15%-20% of Obama supporters are in denial. They will poll one way but the secret ballot will allow a quiet resignation to the truth. The real problem is that Romney will inherit racial unrest. As apples do not fall far from trees, I do not believe he is well equipped to handle it.

(If Obama is the opponent.)

I'm curious to know how you think Hillary would fare against Romney.

Yes, the thrill is gone. A site I visit from time to time is

The "Progressives" are comfortably back on their self proclaimed moral high ground bitching about everything. Seldom anything to say about the Lightbringer.

Other than their rhetoric, hard to tell them apart right wingers. Same pompous assumptions they are right and everyone else is wrong.

Bush was a disaster. The Lightbringer is a catastrophe.

I agree about sleep walking..

Next to Obama, I'd hardly call Bush a 'disaster' but I understand the sentiment.

As for Peggy Noonan? PTUI! She was so gaga over THE ONE until recently I don't take her seriously anymore. I was devastated and even hurt by her stupidity

One note:
Racial unrest may induce people to elect people, based on color, to ease the situation; but when racial unrest occurs during and is unchecked by the administration of a person of that color, heh, not so much.

This circus might look like it will aid Obama's reelection. Nope. It's already blowing up in their faces. Obama has divided himself from the White House.

∞ ≠ ø : Hillary, I think, would give Romney a pretty good fight, to a degree. I think, however, that she's been out of the minds of the Left for some time.

One additional point about Mr Obama:

He's now SELLING HOODIES, in an attempt to acquire votes on the back of a black 17-year-old male from the American black voter.

I don't quite think I can envision something so obviously, simultaneously, crass and racist.

You are such a LOW class act, Mr Obama.

Sorry to point this out, but that is exactly what did happen on your guy's watch.

Noonan has written a scorcher of an essay with this one! A lot of truth there, too.

∞ ≠ ø: clearly, unfortunately, a product of public education, wouldn't you guess?
