Grade PresBO on MS-NBC right now. Fail! April 7, 2009

MS-NBC is conduction a poll (Grade The President) as to how PresBo is doing during his first 100 days. As of this afternoon (about 3 pm EDT) 32% of voters graded him “A” and 42% of voters graded him “F”. I usually can’t give MS-NBC credit for much but I will give them credit for leaving the score posted since it most certainly doesn’t fit its own political agenda. They are the king of apologists for PresBO and all the liberals of his ilk.

I don’t even think that Ronald Reagan was as polarizing a president as PresBO. Then again, Reagan set stakes in the ground, boundaries for his foes, but he didn’t try to re-make the world in 100 days. No doubt he did re-make the world for the better over two terms regardless of his failings. Reagan knew it was better to fade away than burn out. PresBO will take Neil Young’s advice and do the opposite if he keeps it up.

The origins of this liberal revival are not new. In 1967, Susan Sontag wrote in the Partisan Review:

“The white race is the cancer of human history. It is the white race and it alone- it’s ideologies and inventions- which eradicates autonomous civilizations wherever it spreads, which has upset the ecological balance of the planet, which now threatens the very existence of life itself.”

In an essay within “Our Times – The Washington Times 1982-2002” Arnold Beichman gives us a reminder of what’s going on:

“The power of the Left academy was to be seen in what has happened in the field of history. Professor Kenneth S. Lynn of Johns Hopkins University wrote that “self-criticism is now so rampant in the American culture, that many historians simply cannot deal with the principle achievements of the American past unless they can think of ways to discredit them.””

This is the rewriting of history PresBO pursues. Tierany is his chosen path.

You will not hear the kind of rhetoric backed by strength you heard from Reagan when he said to the Soviet Union at the Berlin Wall: “General Secretary Gorbachev,if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.”

No, PresBO is an empty suit. A hollow horse. here are some samples of his recent rhetoric:

“I cannot swallow whole the view of Lincoln as the Great Emancipator.”

“I know my country has not perfected itself. At times, we’ve struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We’ve made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.”

“I think when you spread the wealth around it’s good for everybody.”

“The thing about hip-hop today is it’s smart, it’s insightful. The way they can communicate a complex message in a very short space is remarkable.”

“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Well, change the rhetoric, without a TelePrompTer, and you pretty much have nothing.

One more from President Reagan to contrast with PresBO:

“The difference between the path toward greater freedom or bigger government is the difference between success and failure; between opportunity and coercion; between faith in a glorious future and fear of mediocrity and despair; between respecting people as adults, each with a spark of greatness, and treating them as helpless children to be forever dependent; between a drab, materialistic world where Big Brother rules by promises to special interest groups, and a world of adventure where everyday people set their sights on impossible dreams, distant stars, and the Kingdom of God. We have the true message of hope for America.”

In PresBOs world, Big Brother rules. He knows better than you. You’re just too stupid to figure it out. At least, that’s what he’s counting on.

Whether its changing the rhetoric or re-writing American history, PresBO is the most dangerous president since Jimmy Carter. That’s a malaise I’d rather forget and not repeat, but it looks like I’m right in the middle of it with you right now.

PresBOs world is small and flat where everyone is the same, no one is significantly better or worse than the next. Reagan world was big, round, and full of good and lines in the sand drawn to keep evil in its place. We were the biggest and best without question. PresBOs goal is to put that into question.
