    The Anti-Reagan
    by Patrick J. Buchanan
    06/09/2009

    Despite his boldness, Barack Obama seems as fated to fail as were Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter. And for the same reason: a belief in his own righteousness and moral superiority, and a belief that his ideals and his persona count mightily in the modern world.

    SNIP

    ...he behaves on the world stage like some Ivy League kid ashamed of the people he came from, letting one and all on campus know that he is nothing like his benighted family with its sordid history.

    SNIP

    Obama is the anti-Reagan. Where Reagan ever spoke of the greatness and glory of America, her history and heroes, her capacity to make the world all over again, Obama is like a dismal parson, forever reminding us -- and everyone within earshot -- of our own and our fathers' sins.

    If there's one thing that I like about Pat Buchanan (which there are lots of things), he never fails to hit the nail on the head every time.

    Is Buchanan claiming that Jimmey Carter's statement that he was a born-again Christian was an an example of his feeling of moral superiority?

    Reading is not confined to recognizing the words, you must be able to connect them and understand what is being said. It appears that you lac that capability.

    JC had a similar problem!:laugh:
