Star Parker on Obama

Star Parker rightly argues that Obama's vision is far from that of the American founders.

I'm sure glad we didn't elect a Mormon. Getting a friend of the terrorists is much, much better.

We seemed to have forfeited the war in order to win the battle.

I'm not sure that I followed Parker's argument. The founders weren't some monolithic group--there were lots of disagreements in the Federalist Papers. I don't think that it is healthy to oversimply the issues, nor do I think that Star even shows an understanding of the nuance that comes from reading these documents.

Left or not left, people are still responsible to articulate the issues in a cogent manner.
