Obama is just the symptom…

Powerline Blog posted this comment allegedly taken from the Czech newspaper Prager Zeitungon. I’d say it about sums up the problem and is pretty much what I was saying here.

The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.

While it would appear that the comment did not, in fact, appear in the German language paper quoted, it well written and is dead on accurate. Whoever did write it, would be welcome at the Real Revo.

    I love the term “depraved electorate”.
    I think that is the first time that I have heard the term used to described the assholes who put that thing back into office.
    Who would believe an accurate piece of journalism would come out of Europe and a socialist country to boot?

    The Czech Republic is home to quite a few deeply conservative thinkers and Czechs know a thing or two about what living under the socialist boot heel is like.
