It's fun to watch liberals fight with each other. We've seen a lot of that in the last couple weeks and Wednesday a fresh example caught my attention.
Barack Obama has managed to cocoon himself in a hermitically sealed bubble that punishes those who do criticize him. Look at the beating Hillary Clinton was taking from the left for taking those shots at Obama.
Obama is a symbol of the success of the civil rights movement. Pigeons are not allowed to stain this particular statue.
So all of a sudden Obama is taking major hits from the far left and I had to ask myself what could he have possibly done to make these lefties turn on him? And here it is, an Obama quote so outrageous even the left has decided it's time to take him down.
Obama said this:
"I think Ronald Reagan changed the trajectory of America in a way that Richard Nixon did not and in a way that Bill Clinton did not... He put us on a fundamentally different path because the country was ready for it."
Gasp. Oh my god. Lefties are supposed to hate Reagan. No deviation. Hate him.
So, Thursday on the Daily Kos, the far-left Web site that has been trashing Hillary for daring to whisper not so great things about Obama: "Why Obama's comment stings my soul... or fear and loathing in the 1980s." There were 1,700 comments logged on this particular Obama attack — left-wing arguments about the age of fear, the age of the big lie, the age of Reagan.
There was nothing either wrong or out of place in what Obama said. He was right, but they can't take it.
And that is My Word.
