“Barack Obama has a marvelous way of sounding innovative, fresh, and novel while offering stale, predictable bromides. His policies at home are an extension of LBJ’s old Great Society. Abroad we’ve been getting a more sonorous version of Jimmy Carter’s global self-righteous sermonizing.
The public wanted a racially transcendent figure and got instead a Chicago ward boss.

So begins an excellent column by Victor Davis Hanson titled Mr. Obama’s Nowhere Discussions. He goes on to dissect the President’s propensity for soaring rhetoric completely contradicted by actions that are total polar opposites…with completely predictable consequences!
As the old saying goes, “Talk is cheap.” Still holds!
