Comment on Theo Spark:
"President Obama, On the Oil Spill"

President Obama

We shall fight them on the beaches?

Just dreadful, he has absolutely no idea what the Federal role is and what the role of a private business is. Is his plan to bankrupt and seize control of BP like he did with GM?

He claims credit for authorizing Louisiana to act? Chutzpah.

He wants BP to feed a slush fund to be controlled by Obama cronies?

What is his vision of a clean future? Make work unskilled jobs for corrupt insulation contractors, higher taxes, more poverty, greater vulnerability to foreign pressure as we become poorer and our military shrinks as our rivals grow.

The religious conclusion, given the ideological communities that are behind the socialist content of the first 15 minutes of his speech, was wildly discordant. It can no longer pass as a throw away from his experience in the gospel based communities, not when in his case that means the Reverend Wright and the long term implications of his agenda are relentlessly secular and alien to the American experience.

The key I think to walking the nation back from the brink of Fairey pseudo Mussolini infatuation with Obama is to make it deeply unfashionable to have associated with him. When people simply laugh at anyone with an Obama sticker on their car, when Gray's Papaya in NY takes down the Obama ad, when girls go "ewwww" at guys with Obama shirts, then we will have won.

someone might advise the President to save his historical reputation by stepping aside voluntarily

Richard Nixon did not contest the 1960 election although he knew that it was stolen to put Kennedy in office. Richard Nixon resigned in 1974 when senior members of his own party told him it was time to do so. In both cases his primary thought was what would be best for the United States. Richard Nixon, the ultimate fairy tale monster and Two Minute Hate object of the people that Barack Obama was raised by and associated with all his life, was a bigger and less selfish man than the current occupant of the Oval Office can imagine.
