Obama in Two Sentences

WordPress maestro and libertarian Mark Jaquith sums The One up:

Obama in two sentences. Part Oprah, part left-wing tool who likes to use “you can do it” catch phrases to mask the stench of socialism.

And, the slightly longer version from Jesse Walker:

Government cannot solve all our problems. Just the ones involving energy, education, work, the weather, cities, the countryside, sick children, sick mothers, joblessness, hopelessness, and frightening foreigners who do not live in Iraq. Now if you’ll all look under your seats, every one of you is going home with a new car!

  1. Socialism? Very funny. Outside USA that sounds quite ridiculous… perhaps who said that has never read anything coming from a real socialist convention.

  2. N Chung

    Government spending as a % of GDP, Reagan: 22%

    Government spending as a % of GDP, Obama’s budget: <18%.

    Who’s the socialist?

  3. Soviet Union military budget as a % of Soviet GDP > N Chung’s % of good comparisons

  4. N Chung

    N Chung’s % of good comparisons = excellent example of Ryan’s 3rd-grade syntactical usage
