If you’re a far left liberal that is. If you’re a regular American citizen, more invested in pragmatism than ideology, Obama has certainly put us on the road to tremendous change. The White House has defended its chang-y agenda, saying things like “we’ve seen is a dramatic difference in terms of how the United States is perceived around the world.” Yes indeed, now our enemies think we are weak and our allies worry about our resolve. They say that Obama laid “a foundation for keeping America safe and making us a partner around the world,” comments made less than a month after the terror attack by the would-be underwear bomber, the suicide bombing of the CIA in Afghanistan, and the brazen Taliban attack on Afghanistan’s capital city. Security we can believe in.

Economically, despite spending trillions of taxpayer dollars, unemployment marches on, small businesses continue to go out of business, and the national debt is soaring. Not enough change? Not if you’re Dean, Kucinich, or the leftist anti-war fringe who have blasted Obama for not going far enough with his promise of change. I said this before, and I’ll say it again: “In Obama, we got exactly what he promised us: redistribution of wealth, weakness abroad, and more government intrusion.” The left, the rabid left that believes that this is their chance to somehow create a society where Marxism, environmentalism, defeatism, and atheism are the foundational principles is unhappy with Obama for not pushing harder, for not ordering the National Guard to arrest Congress for not passing his bills, for not outlawing opposition parties. The truth is that Obama is much smarter than the far far left gives him credit for because a too sudden move towards socialism and American people will revolt, so instead the president is giving us socialism by increments. The question should not be whether Obama has brought change to America, he has, but rather if the change he has brought has helped or hurt our country. Just recently, the answer to that question was given by Massachusetts and that answer will echo throughout the country later this year.
