Reasonable Observations

“President Obama’s speech to the United Nations has been called naive and even ‘post-American.’ It was something else, as well: the most extravagant excursion into self-worship we have yet seen in an American leader. Beware of politicians who claim to be ‘humbled by the responsibility the American people have placed upon me.’ It’s a neon sign flashing the opposite. And sure enough, in almost the next sentence, the president allowed that ‘I am well aware of the expectations that accompany my presidency around the world.’ Really? The whole world pulses with hope and expectation because Obama is president? People in Amsterdam, Sao Paulo and Taipei have a spring in their step because an Illinois Democrat won the White House?” –columnist Mona Charen

“America is 233 years old. Some think that there are ample accomplishments speaking to our character and cause that predate Obama’s ascension to the presidency. Feh, Obama seems to be saying. Look instead to our new greatness, for we have elected a man like him! Having anointed himself America’s vindicator and redeemer, Obama’s real purpose seems to be to become the leader not of the free world but, simply, the world.” –columnist Jonah Goldberg

“With President Obama presiding over ‘the historic session,’ the U.N. Security Council approved unanimously an American resolution committing all nations to work for — please sit up straight for this — a world free of nuclear weapons. Somewhere in the fine print was a clause praising small babies, little puppies and chocolate candy. The resolution was so harmless that even Russia, China and several ‘developing’ nations (the usual euphemism for the socialist satraps) voted for the resolution.” –columnist Wesley Pruden

“The president’s announcement that the United States would not deploy long-range missile defenses in Eastern Europe after all was astonishing because George W. Bush had negotiated so patiently with the Czechs and Poles, who took considerable risks in cooperating with Washington. … The Poles, Czechs and everyone else must hope that Obama got something from Russia in return. For now, the president looks more chump than champ. The president’s men made him look like a rube just off the turnip truck for how he gave the word to the Polish and Czech presidents, treating them to a midnight telephone call the night before he announced his decision. It looked like an afterthought, and probably felt that way, too.” –columnist Suzanne Fields

“Liberalism holds that there is no human problem that government can’t fix if only the right people are put in charge.” –former Alaska governor Sarah Palin
