That’s the title of a piece I wrote that is running this morning in Politico.
Why be afraid? Because Obama in his speech Tuesday in Kansas revealed that he is going to campaign as a liberal – no more unifying hope and change nonsense – in order to gain a mandate to govern as a liberal. And then he will put us on a road to statism from which we may never return.
From the article:
Obama Tuesday called for higher taxes, more spending and more regulation, while suggesting that government knows best how people should conduct their businesses. He caricatured conservatism as a Darwinian wasteland that had brought the country to ideological ruin — a pernicious philosophy that hurts people and never really worked.
The comparisons you hear are wrong. Obama is not running as Harry S. Truman or Theodore Roosevelt. He’s certainly not running as Reagan. He’s running as George McGovern.
I hope you take a look and that you enjoy it.
