If America could survive Jimmy Carter, maybe it can survive Barack Hussein Obama, because the two aren’t always easy to tell apart:
“Over the last decade, we became a country that relied too much on what we bought and consumed.”
– President Obama, Nov. 19, 2011
“Too many of us now tend to worship self-indulgence and consumption. Human identity is no longer defined by what one does, but by what one owns.”
– President Carter, July 15, 1979
No wonder the Obama campaign has already given up on the white working class:
For decades, Democrats have suffered continuous and increasingly severe losses among white voters. But preparations by Democratic operatives for the 2012 election make it clear for the first time that the party will explicitly abandon the white working class.
All pretense of trying to win a majority of the white working class has been effectively jettisoned in favor of cementing a center-left coalition made up, on the one hand, of voters who have gotten ahead on the basis of educational attainment — professors, artists, designers, editors, human resources managers, lawyers, librarians, social workers, teachers and therapists — and a second, substantial constituency of lower-income voters who are disproportionately African-American and Hispanic.
We’ve been down this miserable road before. Other than unreachably foolish moonbat intellectuals and envious minority groups eager to tear down Whitey, who would want to go down it again?
