Today’s Must Read:
What facet of the extremists (left or right) is their holier than though arrogance. They walk among us mere mortals dispensing their cosmic wisdom. They are insufferable know-it-alls who typically really know very little.
Mona Charen notes how President Obama has taken this political hackery to a new high, and a new low:
It has always been a particular vanity of the left to believe itself morally superior to others. But the claims for this presidency have been beyond extravagant. Global human rights, morality, and justice took a “great leap forward” (as Anita Dunn’s favorite political philosopher might say) on Jan. 20. But in the space of just nine months, the Obama administration has betrayed the cause of human rights around the globe.
When its all about their success, political leaders have no time for the needs of the common folks. Never have, never will. It’s all about them you see.
