Giving Obama way too much credit

Stanley Kurtz at NRO offers that President Obama is willing to surrender “the dignity of his office” while “sacrificing his likeability” in order to try and capture the “demographically ascendant” and provide the left with James Carville’s dream of a 40-year Democrat majority (which vanished in 2010 like mold in the face of uncut Clorox).

I feel Mr. Kurtz gives Obama far too much credit for possessing a coherent—if massively flawed—vision and that Barry is instead in search of a derivation of the postmodern ideals articulated by Francis Schaffer: personal peace and affluence.

The derivation in Obama’s case is he’s in search of personal power and affluence. However, the reality-based and obvious disconnects are: 1) that Barry makes Jimmy Carter look powerful and 2) that Obamunism does not lead to affluence.

In this case, it’s not useful to attribute to Obama’s conspiracy that which can be more easily attributed to Obama’s incompetence (and flawed worldview).

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
