I have wondered why there has been no hue and cry from the mainstream media over the Obama administration’s mantra to never let a good crisis go to waste (but then I remember that most mainstream media outlets should change their name to Pravda). There seems to be a strange(?) synchronicity in these types of comments between members of the administration. Which has always made me wonder why they seemed so, well….pleased that the country has found itself in a moment of crisis as their administration has come into power.
So I bring to your attention, dear reader, this piece by National Review’s Jonah Goldberg. He rightly points out that the Obama administration is taking advantage of the country’s preoccupation with the economy to enact portions of his leftist agenda. Let’s not forget that this administration comes from the same political spectrum that demonized the Bush administration for using 9/11 and the War on Terrorism as an excuse to perpetrate all manner of shameful and hurtful policies.
I close this post with a word from Saul Alinsky, the “community organizer” that informs so many of Obama’s senior administration officials, including Hilary Clinton and Obama himself: “One’s concern with the ethics of means and ends varies inversely with one’s personal interest in the issue.”
