One of President Barack Obama’s 2012 themes will likely revolve around what his aides call “the contrast” — a portrayal of Obama as a responsible, moderate adult harassed by infantile Republicans who favor the wealthy.Yes, more often than not, politics is about image rather than reality. The truth is that Barack Obama is a far-left ideologue who neither understands economics nor cares. The far left believes that wealth exists independently of effort, work, investment and risk taking, sort of like manna from heaven: it just appears, as if by magic, like sunshine, flowers and rainbows. The rich are those who have managed to grab more than their fair share, leaving the slower and the tardy to fight for scraps. It is therefore the job of the far left to take some of the manna away and redistribute it to the poor folks.
Obama is neither responsible nor moderate, and his belief system is not that of an adult. His belief system is more that of a radical college sophomore who is high on pot and believes passionately in the manna-from-heaven theory of wealth, and his holy mission to rearrange reality so it is more to his liking. We absolutely cannot bear another four years of this radical college sophomore, lest we become the next Greece, with all of its economic failings, crushing debt and widespread riots.
