“The Old Obama in New Clothing”

28 Jan

A great piece here from Charles Krauthammer.  Some of my favorite lines:

* “His (Obama’s) 2009 stimulus and budget-busting health-care reform are precisely what stirred the popular revolt that delivered his November shellacking. And yet he’s back for more.”

* “To face down those overachieving Asians, Obama wants to sink yet more monies into yet more road and bridge repair, more federally subsidized teachers – with a bit of high-speed rail tossed in for style. That will show the Chinese.”

* “This is to be our “Sputnik moment,” when the fear of the foreigner spurs us to innovation and greatness of the kind that yielded NASA and the moon landing.  Apart from the irony of this appeal being made by the very president who has just killed NASA’s manned space program….

* “From the moon landing to solar shingles. Is there a better example of American decline?”
