Our dear Mannie Sherberg hits the nail on the head... in my humble opinion.
There's always been a debate among historians as to whether Nero actually fiddled while Rome burned -- but there'll be no debate about the fact that Obama fiddled around while the American economy burned into cinders.
There was never anything fated or destined or inevitable about this conflagration of American assets and American dreams. It is the result of intentional malfeasance by a socialist president determined to give America its comeuppance and bring it to its knees. What's happening today is what the Left has for many years yearned for, pined for, and worked for.
Obama's talk about Hope and Change was much more than campaign malarkey -- it was a promise to the Left that he would give them what they hoped for by changing America into the basket case of their dreams. He's kept his promise.
