"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Hugh Hewitt Makes the Case Against Obama

Actually, his book title is The Brief Against Obama, but here it is on today's Hugh Hewitt blog in summary form:

*He has wrecked the "recovery," and is in the process of insisting on a recession via massive tax hikes as an exercise in the politics of envy. Unemployment is actually much higher than 8.2% and the president's policies are shutting the door on the prospects of a hiring surge.
*He has run up astounding amounts of debt that will cause the dollar to weaken and inflation to arrive with vengeful force.
*He has wrecked Medicare by looting it of $500 billion and Obamacare's roll out via the IPAB will institute rationing for seniors even as premiums in the private sector skyrocket and Medicaid collapses.
*He is stripping the military of men and assets, reducing the American nuclear deterent even as he denies our conventional forces of their edge via deep across-the-board cuts.
*He telegraphs weakness to all of our enemies and our enemies respond.
*He is stacking the courts with hard-left judges --including one who struck down even his own detention policy Friday-- and will stack the Supreme Court with more votes for the full flowering of government in a second term likely to see at least two vacancies.
