So, now it’s okay to put America first?
So, now it’s okay to be a “nativist,” ultra-patriotic protectionist?
So, now it’s okay to bitterly cling to the nationalist idea that our country is superior?
Didn’t want this one to get lost over the weekend. It’s too rich: The Obamessiah is channeling Pat Buchanan and is now a red-white-and-blue Great American pandering to Harley riders. Obama’s targeted radio ad claims John McCain was a hypocrite for embracing Harley riders’ support simply because he opposed a federal mandate that the government buy American-made vehicles. And the Obama camp is disseminating a “Buy American” logo to show its purported patriotic colors:
You want to talk hypocrisy, Mr. Citizen of the World? There’s nothing hypocritical about opposing coercion in taxpayer-funded purchases. Hypocrisy is dissing America First voters while nibbling on Brie at private San Francisco fund-raisers and proclaiming to be embarrassed that Americans don’t speak Spanish –and then plastering the campaign with “Buy American” stickers in the hopes of winning over a demographic you hold in utter contempt.
Welcome to the Obama Cone of Arrogance.
Ed Morrissey thinks Obama is channeling…REO Speedwagon. Heh.
The NYTimes carries Obama’s water with this: “For Convention, Obama’s Image is All-American.”
