The country's in the very best of hands

I look at our Prime Minister and the Leader of Her Majesty's Opposition, who will probably be Prime Minister by this time next year and I become profoundly depressed. Then I look across the Pond at the President of the greatest democracy and the leader of the free world and I become terrified.

Powerline explains the latest development in the Obama-Gates saga. Be very afraid.


  1. We are not likely ever to see Obambi apologize sincerely about anything.

  2. Obama finds it hard not to let his post-racial mask slip. He's always wanted to be celebrated as a champion for black people like Martin Luther King.

    His first autobiography, which for some reason journalists never read, "Dreams from my Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance" outlined his political dreams in detail. Problem for Obama was that in 2001 he ran for an election and found he was not "black enough" for black voters.

    Instead Obama was forced to accept that he could only progress in politics by embracing his "white" side and the white vote. David Axelrod remoulded him as a post-racial leader. He wrote his second autobiography "The Audacity of Hope".

    I've found Steve Sailer "America's Half-Blood Prince", on Obama's first but rarely read biography, is essential reading (can be downloaded here, also on Amazon) on this.

    Interestingly, the policeman in question refused to apologise and although Obama hasn't said the word "sorry" he's said everything but that (and to Obama's credit he's called the policeman "an outstanding individual". lesson, when you are right and are wrongly accuse, don't apologise.
