As I prepared dinner this evening, I was listening to the Michael Savage show. The news-talk radio station that I regularly listen to finally put him on earlier in the evening and I can listen more often. He is perhaps one of the most interesting hosts on the air. This evening I tuned in and heard a discussion about Obama being described as a Robin Hood type figure who steals from the rich and gives to the poor.
This characterization drives me nuts.
A while back I posted Divided We Fail, which outlined my theory that politicians want a divided country so they can “rule” with impunity. I am sorry about the quotes, but I cannot bring myself to call what politicians do as ruling or leadership. I have to use the quotation marks to signify my dirision at their efforts.
In the last few days and weeks, there seems to be another campaign, primarily by the President and his followers to provide a distraction. The willing mainstream media made a big deal about how President Obama had a secret meeting with “leading” conservatives in the media. Unfortunately, the meeting was not so secret and the meeting did not include the most conservative voices.
