I guarantee it’s going to be a close election because the economy is not where it wants to be and even though I believe all the choices we’ve made have been the right ones, we’re still going through difficult circumstances. That means people who may be sympathetic to my point of view still kind of feel like, yeah, but it still hasn’t gotten done yet. This is going to be a close election and a very important one for the American people. The thing I hope the most is that everyone is going to be paying close attention to the debate that takes place because it could determine not just what happens over the next four years, but what’ll happen over the next 20 or 30 years.
This guy has a weird definition of what choices are right.
In my book, a choice is right if it leads to the desired outcome. Now, some on the right think that Obama’s desired outcome is the collapse of the American economy, following the Cloward-Piven strategy, and if so, then that quote above could be construed as evidence of that.
However, it could also be that he simply doesn’t know what he’s doing, he just knows what his perfessers in college told him was “right” and what was “wrong.” Since he’s made what they defined as the “right” choices, he’s probably absolutely dumbfounded that they didn’t work, but he refuses to consider the “wrong” choices, or even consider the possibility that the perfessers could have been mistaken about what the “right” and “wrong” choices are. After all, Obama’s worldview is profoundly authoritarian (L’Etat, c’est moi), and so he’d also see perfessers (deliberately misspelled throughout) as automatically correct.
Whatever the reasoning behind it, that statement will probably be picked up by whoever the GOP candidate is.
