Obama and the Disillusionment of America

We have come a long way since the rock-solid convictions of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and the high hopes of John F.Kennedy’s aim-for-the-moon and “ask not” rhetoric. The anniversaries we have just celebrated seem like they come from another country, not just another time. Call it the disillusionment of America. And Obama may have disillusioned more [...]

It’s not just the website!

Moments ago, Secretary Sebelius apologized to Congress. …for a malfunctioning website. But the problem is not just the website. The problem is Obamacare itself!
