Family Security Matters
Sitting down to parse President Barack Obama’s second inaugural address of January 21st, one’s eyes begin to glaze over while scanning the transcript of the speech. There again are the same old platitudes, bromides, and catch phrases and secret coded messages. There again is the sanctimonious delivery of a person who wants to be remembered for something, because otherwise he is a zero who can only recite a speech someone else wrote and polished and ensured that no gaffes or unintended meanings were in the text. But he read the speech, he vetted it and approved of it, and he delivered it, so, it’s his speech. He owns it, for better or for worse. And the unrelenting theme is worse.
Worse for the country, because he means to “transform” it. Which, to anyone who values freedom and governing his own destiny, means to damage it, perhaps irreparably.
