Chairman Obama? 

The headline on the front page of today's Wall Street Journal reads, "Obama Budget Pushes Sweeping Change." It's pretty clear from the facts, not to mention Obama's own words, that he intends to turn the country into a much larger pre-Thatcher UK, or even more socialist than that.

It's also pretty clear that Obama wants to make his mark on history to the same extent, if not effect, as Washington, Lincoln and FDR. In short, he wants to be revered as a sort of savior--the messiah meme returns with a vengeance.

To paraphrase a famous lady, for the first time in my life I'm not proud of my country.

I wonder how long it will be before we all have to carry around little books titled, "Quotations from President Obama," and suffer punishment at the hands of the government if we don't.

As I've said before, I HOPE all this CHANGE doesn't ruin us, But I'm getting more and more pessimistic.
