Obama voter base coming out of trance
« on: December 07, 2013, 10:54:56 AM »

Seven years ago, Barack Obama, an unknown quantity, announced his presidential campaign theatrically, on the steps of Lincoln's courthouse.

We now know him better and are appalled at the damage he has inflicted. He clearly lacks the experience and wisdom needed, but that became a don't-care item. He cast a spell over many in the U.S., and even in Europe. The Nobel Peace committee awarded him a medal, with no substantive achievement to justify it.

Those of us who were able to see through him and his campaign speeches could not believe the zombie-like behavior of those he bewitched and stripped of their common sense. They believed he could extend medical service to 22 million people without costing a dime!

There are signs that his voter base is coming out of its trance. Commendably, RGJ sounded an alarm by supporting Romney over Obama. Currently, some congressional Democrats are jumping ship. We can only hope that the nation's loss of spirit and stability have not been irretrievably lost.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
