Surviving a 'multitude of fools'

From a Czech newspaper, quoted by Bernard Goldberg, after the election:

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president."

At first blush, this rings true and wise.  Yet in a reality such as we inherited due to last week's election, this quote is merely enjoyable reading.

The "Prince" will, in four years...

Ensconce Obamacare and thus ensure 1/6th of the economy will be controlled by the government.

He will steer his agencies into enacting regulations, essentially unpassed legislation, which will promote his agenda and hamstring industries from coal to banking.

The Prince of Fools gets 2 or 3 Supreme Court Appointments that may last, and alter, the country for 30 or 40 years

Sharply reduce the military, the Space Program, and thus curtail weapons technologies and thus the nation's defense.

He will strike agreements with nations, as he suggested to Medvedev, that may be long on trust and weak on verification.

He will enjoy a foreign policy heavy on presumption and reliant on requested cooperation.  A green light to the nefarious elements.

Certainly, as the newspaper points out, the "Fools" that elected the Prince are a big problem. It is tough to beat Santa Clause.  And now the jockey is bigger than the horse, and the horse is staggering.  Collecting "fools," bribing the population with its own money, seems irreversible. When once something is given, how can it be taken away?

The Prince and his court are very dangerous indeed.
