Let's read two

Norman Podhoretz on Barack Obama:

"we villainous conservatives do not see Mr. Obama as conciliatory or as 'a president who either does not know what he believes or is willing to take whatever position he thinks will lead to his re-election.' On the contrary, we see him as a president who knows all too well what he believes. Furthermore, what Mr. Westen [NY Times - What Happened to Obama] regards as an opportunistic appeal to the center we interpret as a tactic calculated to obfuscate his unshakable strategic objective, which is to turn this country into a European-style social democracy while diminishing the leading role it has played in the world since the end of World War II."

Mark Steyn--The New Britannia--on the riots in London should strike a few familiar notes to those of you following this blog.
