Must Read From American Thinker

Great analysis on Obama permanently changing America. Although the conclusions are depressing, I don't see Barry as the second coming of Pierre Trudeau. The crucial difference between Obama and other tin horn communists is the rate of spending that has fueled his agenda. For better or worse, America will be insolvent  sooner rather than later. It won't be all milk and honey at that point but cradle to grave socialism will cease to exist when the money is gone.

In fact, reports of the Obama presidency's death are not only, as Mark Twain would say, exaggerated, butdemonstrate the extent to which he has succeeded in fundamentally transforming America.  A government is truly transformative not because it achieves everything it sets out to do, but because it fundamentally shifts the public conversation onto its own territory -- and fundamentally, in this case, means substantially and permanently.  That Obama has lost some of his luster is certain; that this betokens a defeat for progressivism shows a grave misunderstanding on the part of conservatives.
