Since the race card is really the only campaign plank that Team Obama has used that has garnered him the slightest bit of traction in any of the polls, Coulter's book is unfortunately pertinent. Not unfortunate that he usual snark and ability to write provocatively and entertainingly is present, but that her counter arguments to the race hustlers and 21st century snake oil salesmen are still necessary.
Are we better off than we were four years ago? No, we're just used to the conditions now. That's really the whole point of Barack Obama's Domestic policy. Not that America thrives with success driven by successful individuals, but that we should all just accept his leveled off Utopia where everyone is equally miserable, and therefore experiencing his warped measure of fairness. By every measure, the economy inherited by Ronald Reagan was far worse than the one inherited by Barack Obama. By Reagan's third year in office, our economy was humming along in what became known as the super boom period, which lasted until the end of Bill Clinton's Eighth year in office. The difference of course was in the types of policies enacted by Ronald Reagan and those enacted by our current President.
Here is Mark Steyn's analysis on the situation in Benghazi, complete with a refutation of the latest liberal talking point meme, that any discussion of this failure of Barack Obama to show the slightest bit of competence in the arena of foreign policy is somehow motivated by pure politics. I find it slightly insulting that a Presidential Administration would suggest somehow that Americans should only hold discussions on topics approved by the Administration. That boys and girls is as anti American as it is possible to get.
