That would fit with the arrogance of trying to dictate, often by law, what they say is good for you while exhibiting gross ignorance to the degree of two years of unemployment instead of training and upgrade programs. Even in failure, they justify the lies and deceit with "but, people were helped. Yes they were, the 'shovel ready' thing helped a few hundred community organizers who simply had to hold so many meetings that the entire budget they scammed was used up without a dime going to a needy worker.
I live in Canada, socialists have been legal here for a long, long time. They are no more progressive than a gold fish can teach physics, their core ideas, like a higher minimum wage, are about 100 years old. In a day and age when we have more women Premiers than men, one of whom ios an out-of-the-closet lesbian, the cries for 'women's rights' is like driving an Edsel.
Obama's cling to Bibles and guns was what is called "image reinforcement", reminding his supporters that their common "enemies" are all evangelical, Bible moralists toting guns for the purpose of killing black people. That, I expected, what rocked me was "he could have been my son"....the first ever president to break the convention of never commenting on the finding of a jury of one's peers. That showed his true colors and how his socialist/populist ideas play to the fears of his constituents. The bad Republican racists will be coming for you if I am not around to protect you.
The guy is a master at imagery and manipulating emotions to his benefit, but entirely absent of any true compassion for others
