Talk is still cheap

“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. The problem now for Mr. Obama — reflected in growing popular discontent — is that on matters of debt, taxes, energy, jobs, and race, he apparently has very little new to offer. He just serves up in new wording the them/us divides of the past….”

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!
