Seventy-five months into his perpetual campaign to transform America into something else, Barack Obama is still talking about all that’s wrong with the country he’s spent almost $2 billion of other people’s money to lead.
You might think by now the unhappy warrior would be capable of touting some progress in his annual string of commencement addresses to inattentive audiences sitting in hot sun.
But, No. Obama feels forced to talk about how things are decaying, and not just those rusting bridges. How politically dysfunctional and divided is the capitol city he vowed to fix way back what now seems an eternity ago. How the country really needs to be so much better to live up to his expectations.
Obama’s telepromptered rhetoric is still steeped in the combative, corrective, community organizer language of radically changing the nation that he didn’t grow up in and that scores of millions of citizens are really pretty happy with, even as they acknowledge collective national faults to work on as generations have before.
“People who love their country can change it for the better,” the president informed a partially-filled stadium of Ohio State enthusiasts on Sunday. (Scroll down for a full C-SPAN video.) They thought they’d come to celebrate what they or a loved one had just accomplished in academe.
They got brief celebratory commencement political yada-yada about this being an important day in their own lives. But with Obama there’s always an undercurrent of unhappiness and discontent, of dissatisfaction with whatever anyone has just accomplished. NBA, NCAA, NASCAR champs yes, that’s OK.
That’s never enough, however. Don’t go feeling too good. You didn’t build that yourself. You really have to do something else, help somebody else, build something else. As if everyone grew up fatherless and must spend an entire futile life proving something.
Was Obama celebrating the late nights of university study to earn this degree? The lessons learned, minds expanded? The friendships formed into lifelong bonds? Of course, not.
He’s got to talk about “all the times you’ve been let down, or frustrated at the hand that you’ve been dealt.” Like what–attending a state school instead of the private ones he went to?
Seriously? This Democrat is peddling victim-hood to new college graduates? That awful raw deal they’re enduring graduating from a world-renowned university on the brink of bountiful lives in the freest land in the history of the planet? Dear God, please help them live through this terrible time of trial and tribulation!
