    George Will On LOTUS

    George Will on President Obama

    America has had some great presidents, many mediocre ones and a few bad ones. But we’ve never had one like Barack Obama. He’s the first who thinks the job is beneath him.

    He’s the first who turns political give-and-take into a crisis by refusing to negotiate with Congress.

    He’s the first who thinks the way to more power is to inflict pain on ordinary people.
    The move to barricade the World War II memorial reveals the mentality of a tin-pot dictator. The limited government shutdown did not need to affect the memorial because it is open 24 hours, without gates and often without guards. But to turn public opinion in his favor, Obama’s goons trucked in barricades to keep out World War II vets and other visitors. By one estimate, the barricades and workers cost $100,000.

    The same punish-the-people attitude led to shutdowns of other parks and historic sites that get no federal funding. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting,” a Park Service ranger told The Washington Times. The ranger cited the order to close the parking lot at George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon so visitors couldn’t use it. The cheap trick captured the contrast between a revered president and the current one.

    I’ve been saying for a while that there is no bottom to Obama. He’s not just ruthless. He’s without scruples and honor.

    Now the shutdown has ended, it will bring only a temporary respite from the crisis atmosphere in Washington. When it comes to his countrymen, Obama always chooses conflict over cooperation.

    Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter can rest easy. We have a new worst president.

    • Hard to believe that Nixon resigned the office over what was nowhere near the lies being told by Obama (nobody got hurt over that Watergate thing, an incident that happens all the time in politics). But as usual, "this is different" (like Clinton pointing at the cameras and saying he didn't like blue dresses). Pretty pathetic.

        Time to educate the home schooler.... again.

        Drooler, Nixon LED the conspiracy to cover up the burglary at the Watergate. He was fully participating in paying hush money to the burglars, led by McCord. He was fully part of the purjury during the hearings. He committed at least 4 felonies, and was being pursued by James Benveniste when Ford pardoned him.

        Compared to the president???? You are senile.

        Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • George Will has been fired from every semi-reputable news surprise that he now hangs his pundit shingle at Fox News.

      "In a statement announcing the hire, FNC Executive Vice President of News Michael Clemente praised Will.

      “We are delighted to have someone of George’s stature join Fox News,” Clemente said. “His wisdom is enduring and his achievements are far too long to list.”

      Ha ha ha.
