"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

To Ask the Question Is To Answer It

Hugh Hewitt asks the obvious question in the title of his article today:

Is Obama the worst president ever?

Hewitt goes on to go full "dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria" disaster-of-Biblical proportions on Obama:

Obama's tenure is a vast desert of anti-achievement, a landscape of waste and ruin on every front at home and abroad, save on the ability to mobilize voters who don't know or don't care about the state of the country or the world. 
The president rolled to re-election on the strength of technologies that enabled his minions to tap and turn out folks who simply are clueless that that nice fellow in the White House hasn't the foggiest idea of how to run the country... 
The prospect of 39 more months of the anti-president at the helm is daunting. No plans for anything except bus tours and college campus speeches, no idea how to invigorate a sputtering economy or trim a bloated budget. 
Just miles and miles to go before we can can all sleep without the prospect of seeing him the next day, yet again, making another meaningless speech or filibustering another softball question from a kept White House press.

Imagine if he'd actually run on a platform of high unemployment, trillion-dollar deficits, rising racial tension, bankrupted cities, green energy graft, defeat-from-the-jaws-of-victory in Iraq and Afghanistan, chaos in Libya, Syria and Egypt, disdain from world leaders, gay marriage, open borders and socialized medicine!   The low information voters would have still voted for him probably, but maybe enough people would have seen the light.   Pity.

Nice little country you had there.   Sorry it had to end this way.
