George Will hosted a dinner with President-Elect Barack Obama with a room full of conservative writers. I’m sure it was a very nice dinner. No doubt everything went well down to the Lobster Thermador. However, sitting down at the dinner table with one’s theological counterpart does have it’s risks. Watching the faces of the star stuck columnists speaking of that dinner, only reminds me of the saying, “keep your enemies close.” The problem with doing something like that is clear. The conservative writers will be affected by the personal nature and the he’s-a-regular-guy slippery slope. They being human, will lose their objectivity, even if they believe that they won’t. It is only natural when you cover somebody you know, you will unconsciously give them the benefit of the doubt.
As much as Barack Obama seems at the time to be a middle of the roader and the way people are conceiving that he might not be the lefty we thought he was, is dangerous. Make no mistake about it. This man will, when he is ready, take a huge turn to the left. This will happen. It will happen just as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow. He will soften everyone up as a nonpartisan, new politician and when he’s ready, drag us all down that dark and musky alley of socialism.
This man like no other I’ve ever seen has the “beyond earthly ability” to put people under his spell. It has been an interesting thing to watch. The conservatives attending that dinner would never admit or understand any of this thought, however, we know and that’s all that counts. Be watchful to the things I’m bringing up here. Every one of Barack Obama’s appointments to lower level positions that never reaches the level of the evening news has been a blazing lefty. His major appointments give the impression of a moderate, yet the lower level people who actually perform the behind the scenes work of government are insane lefty crazies. This man has an agenda and will do whatever it takes to accomplish that. This is a guy who believes in socialized medicine, giving up nuclear weapons and a farrago of left-wing beliefs, is what he is. Any feeling that the right has that he might not be that bad, should be thrown into a pit and set on fire. This man is a socialist, so help me God.
