Obama’s speech Wednesday was not, as you may have read, a “pivot” to the economy. Rather, it was a sweeping statement of purpose by a leftist president angling to get government involved with every aspect of your life and solidify the arrangement for generations to come.
I wanted to let you know about an opinion article I did for Reuters today about Obama’s remarks: Obama’s Plan: One Nation Under Government.
Here’s an excerpt:
Speaking Wednesday at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, Obama presented a statist vision that should send chills down the spine of anyone who believes that free markets, not government, create wealth.
Obama sketched a series of problems that he says confront the United States and hold back what he called the middle class. He might as well have used the term “proletariat,” though — because every fetter he described requires government intervention to make things right .
“I will not allow gridlock, or inaction, or willful indifference to get in our way,” warned Obama.
He’ll stop at nothing to get this done. I hope you have a moment to take a look at the piece.
