Must Read of the Week

Ed Lasky
Victor Davis Hanson hits another grand slam in today's column in the Washington Times on Barack Obama.

Hanson notes that the man who ran as a post-racial healer has betrayed this promise as he regularly invokes the race card and as evidence emerged of his close ties to the race-mongering Pastor Jeremiah Wright, Jr. He notes the ridicule he privately heaps on small-town Americans; his condescending and insulting view of Americans as a whole:

Hanson writes
 many are beginning to notice how a Saint Obama talks down to them. We American yokels can't speak French or Spanish. We eat too much. Our cars are too big, our houses either overheated or overcooled. And we don't even put enough air in our car tires. In contrast, a lean, hip Barack Obama promises to still the rising seas and cool down the planet, assuring adoring Germans that he is a citizen of the world.


Hanson notes his serial flip-flopping on a range of issues that reveals him to be a typically cynical and hypocritical-if less adroit- politician. Obama's ineptness away from his scripted speeches displayed on a teleprompter is also noted causing people to wonder how knowledgeable Barack Obama may be and creating doubts about his fitness to be President:


Fourth, Mr. Obama is proving as inept an extemporaneous speaker as he is gifted with the Teleprompter. Like most rookie senators, in news conferences and interviews, he stumbles and then makes serial gaffes - from the insignificant, like getting the number of states wrong, to the downright worrisome, such as calling for a shadow civilian aid bureaucracy to be funded like the Pentagon (which would mean $500 billion per annum).
