Wanted to let you know that I’ve penned a piece that’s running today in POLITICO, “Obama Launches Cultural Warfare.”
It’s about how the class warfare Obama has been waging is only part of a larger cultural war the president is in fact conducting against Republicans.
This president, it is increasingly apparent, is willing to rip the country apart for his own reelection purposes.
Here are a couple of paragraphs from the piece to give you the idea.
Having failed to lower the unemployment rate to a politically tolerable level, Obama cannot run as most presidential candidates do — on the economy. So he and his advisers seem to have decided instead to mount a deeply polarizing campaign based on “values” — suggesting his vision for America is correct even if the economy is not right yet.
But in waging this battle, Obama is saying nasty and dangerous things. He is promoting his own principles — not just by touting their goodness, but by suggesting that Republicans hold to an offensive, even un-American, philosophy.
I hope you get a chance to take a look. Let me know what you think.
