Clear and present danger exists for America. If that sounds like a soap opera episode, it isn’t. It’s real, in Andrew McCarthy’s National Review opinion, just as it is for Americans watching Obama sap strength from the nation.
It seems like soap opera because of the way it is covered.
McCarthy speaks of suspenseful, dramatic coverage of current events by the media mouthpiece. Not only natural disasters play into the daily script, but also the way our president maneuvers around the lies continually presented to his audience.
Obamacare provides the pinnacle of the platform for political performance. The country can’t wait for the next executive-order episode that strips bits of our freedoms away. Just when the Obamacare heats to a fury on an inoperable website, a suspense-filled side story sweeps us away to another scandal, nuclear enablement in Iran, or the logarithmic rise of national debt.
In previous times, gross fraud was a disqualifier for offices of public trust. Now, fraud and the dexterity to carry it off in the light of day … [are] admirable attributes in the political drama.
Our leadership has lost the public trust as much as the actor in the Oval Office has run away with the role. The world has become much too serious to stage another season with the current cast.
