Michael Goodwin, NY Daily News

Michael Goodwin in the Daily News. One excerpt-

If only. In truth, there is no history for what he [Obama] is doing. He is the most radical President of our times, far outside the mainstream of our political philosophy.

Goodwin again states the obvious.

During the campaign, a fellow journalist confided that "I know Obama is a Manchurian candidate, I just can't figure out what for."

I laughed then, but no more. Obama represents a secular religion that believes, no matter the malady, Washington is the antidote. More government is the chicken soup of his tribe.

It is an illusion of many Republicans and Democrats that Washington can successfully manage the economy and our lives. Our institutions and culture are too big, too diverse and too unruly to be run like a banana republic.

Yet the economic mess has robbed the nation of its confidence, and the vacuum is being filled by politicians bearing promises and borrowed dollars. The true cost of this "help" will come later, with back-breaking debt and a lack of growth and opportunity.

It's all here.


  1. I originally thought "M. Candidate" as well, but am now tending towards the "Anti-Christ" crowd.

  2. I originally thought Manchurian as well, but am now leaning towards Anti-Christ

  3. I'm leading toward naive goofy empty suit.
