Last night, while attending to what’s important, raising money for Barbara Boxer’s reelection (What Gulf Coast oil spill?), President Obama had this to say:
Let’s face it this has been the toughest year and a half since any year and a half since the 1930s.
Daniel Halper is having none of it:
This is the most revealing comment Obama has made publicly in a long while. It shows his self-absorption and utter lack of a sense of history.
Sure, FDR had a tough ‘30s with the economy and all, but by the time the ‘40s hit, it was smooth sailing. (What’s worse: the Nazis and the threat of world-dominating totalitarianism or the obstructionist Republicans?) And President Harry Truman really had an easy time ending World War II, and having to nuke the Japanese. President Dwight Eisenhower only had the Korean War to worry about – and who remembers that, anyway? JFK and LBJ had Vietnam – not to mention the worry that the Russians might nuke America from Cuba, or any other place in the world, etc., etc., etc.
We’ve got a good one here, alright.
