The following was posted as a comment to one of Erick Erickson’s posts by a user called “lakeworthcane.” It’s so spot on that I felt it needed to be seen in as many places as possible.
“Having watched and listened to Obama for six or seven years now, I think the man has a cartoon-like idea of life in general.

The Patriot Post today is carrying an important essay by Mark Alexander, entitled “Religion and Politics Don’t Mix?”
An excellent point he makes in the essay is that the Declaration of Independence asserts that our Rights (a political term) originate not from our political relationship to a State, but from our religious relationship to the Creator, God.
He points out that the Left has been busy for decades trying to convince people that there is a wall of separation between Religion and the State, and that we should never mingle them.
The old aphorisms, “Religion and Politics Don’t Mix,” and “You can’t Legislate morality” are both products of what Alexander says is a dumbing down of American culture. I would agree.

If the 60′s did have a silver lining, it was that we learned to question everything. For the Left, it was about questioning the remnants of the Old Authority. For today’s generation, the tables have turned. Now it’s about questioning the authority of the established Left, whose chickens are, indeed, coming home to roost.

Then, he has the gall to tell Glenn, “You’re just afraid of Black people.” Glenn tosses the guy out on his butt.
My favorite part is the classic, liberal double-speak (paraphrasing): “We didn’t commit voter fraud, our employees did.”
